Nikon following Canon and Olympus in recent weeks has announced six new cameras today. However the two most interesting models are the Coolpix P1 (a Jessops exclusive) and the P2, both of which will offer wireless access to allow users to transfer images from the camera direct to a wireless enabled PC.
The two cameras will also offer wireless shooting that automatically transfers each picture to a selected computer as soon as it is shot and can be viewed with Nikon's PictureProject software. Wireless printing also delivers the convenience of cable-free direct printing to PictBridge-compatible printers.

Both cameras allow the user to correct images in-camera featuring D-Lighting, The Portrait (Face AF) Mode, In-Camera Red-Eye Fix, 16 Scene Modes and seven movie modes.
Those not wishing to use the wireless connectivity mode will be able to save images down to the cameras 32MB of internal memory for the COOLPIX P1 and the 16MB of internal memory for the COOLPIX P2
