Nikon Coolpix North Bend OR

Nikon says the "p" in its P line of Coolpix models stands for Performance, and on specs alone the Nikon Coolpix P3 and P4 seem to come loaded with some pretty decent firepower. Both models offer a new 1/1.8-inch CCD chip with 8.1 megapixels of image resolution and introduce Vibration Reduction (VR) and optical image stabilization into its consumer-targeted Coolpix line.
