In between the S6100 and the S3100 also announced today, Nikon's COOLPIX S4100 offers a touch screen interface on a 3-inch TFT LCD, ideal for showing off recent photographs or playing back HD video clips.  The S4100 offers 14-Megapixel resolution and also comes with a 5x wide-angle optical zoom lens.

The S4100 shoots 1280x720 resolution (720p) video (up to 1.5 hours of battery life) and has an ISO sensitivity of 80 to 3200.  Similar to the other cameras in the S series, the S4100 includes a variety of automatic tools for adjusting for different scenes, facial expressions and even pet expressions (cat/dog).  The camera also uses Nikon's EXPEED C2 digital image processing as well as NIKKOR ED glass for the lens.

  • 14-megapixel 1/2.3" CCD image sensor
