In an event hosted earlier today, Nikon launched these new products that join the existing Nikon D-series digital-SLR cameras and Coolpix brand of digital cameras.

“With the new photography experience offer by Nikon 1, we don't think there is cannibalization on Nikon DSLR but strongly believe the introduction of this new camera system will further expand the Malaysia camera industry and further strengthen Nikon leader position in the Malaysia market,” explained David Ng, General Manager of Nikon Malaysia.

In conjunction with the launch, Nikon also added eight new compact cameras to the Coolpix lineup including Coolpix AW 100, Coolpix S6200, Coolpix S 6150, Coolpix S4150, Coolpix S1200pj, Coolpix S 8200, Coolpix S100 and Coolpix P 7100.
