Less than a year after the release of the already-impressive Coolpix S8000, Nikon has already squeezed some notable updates into a seriously skinny body.

While the megapixel count has taken a step down from 14.2 to 12.1, the processor has actually taken a step up to a “backside illumination” CMOS sensor for improved low-light performance. It’s complimented by Nikon’s improved EXPEED C2 image processing engine, which you’ll also find in Nikon’s new P7000.
