Nikon coolpix s8100

Nikon's Coolpix S8100 is a great little camera that's perfect for slipping into a pocket ready for taking any snapshots that present themselves. In good light outdoors it can also be relied upon to take images that can be turned in to very decent A3 prints, so you won't regret not taking your DSLR on a long hike or bike ride.

It would be fantastic if Nikon could produce a similar sized camera with greater exposure control via aperture and shutter priority options (or even manual exposure mode) for advanced users.
