Nikon Announcement – August 24th, 2011 – No D800 yet…

Nikon used their world-wide press meetings to introduce 6 new Coolpix cameras. These include the P7100 offering a full-featured camera in a lightweight body, the AW100 ruggedized body that is waterproof and freezeproof, and four S-Series cameras offering fun and compact styling capable of HD video. One camera, the S1200pj, features a built-in projector that is able to project your pictures or even your iPad or iPhone screen with its 20-lumen projector.

Nikon did not release any DSLR or even their mirrorless camera. In the past, Coolpix announcements have been made shortly before new DSLR. This may point to an upcoming Nikon D800 announcement in the next few weeks, possibly in September.
