The Nikon Coolpix P100 is the 3rd generation P-series bridge camera produced by Nikon, and it has certainly learned a few tricks along the way. The P100's 26x zoom lens (26 - 678mm equivalent) stretches the camera’s optical range; and with a burst-rate of up to 10 full-res frames-per-second, it way outruns the P80 and P90.
