Press Release, May 28th, 2004 - Mississauga- Nikon Canada Inc. is pleased to announce the introduction of the COOLPIX 4100, a compact, stylish digital camera with 4.0-megapixel performance and surprisingly simple operation.

Building on the features and functions of the COOLPIX 3200 and using the same easy-to-hold design, the COOLPIX 4100 feels comfortable in the hand. Operation is effortless through its enhanced Graphic User Interface (GUI), which displays easy-to-see menus on a bright 1.6-in. TFT LCD monitor and all controls are placed on the back of the camera for convenient access.

The COOLPIX 4100 has the advantage of 14.5MB of built-in memory. This allows the user to shoot pictures when there's no SD memory card inserted, or copy shots between the internal memory and SD cards as desired.

Like all other models in the popular COOLPIX series, the E4100 has been designed to make things simple for the user and to allow increased versatility without compromising the enjoyment of the moment. The camera features 15 handy Scene modes, four of which offer a Scene Assistance function. These user friendly modes do away with complicated adjustments, enabling the photographer to achieve high-quality results with subjects that range from sunsets to fireworks. Users can also enjoy recording movies with sound, preserving special moments in a unique way.

With a high-quality 3x optical Zoom-Nikkor lens and 4x digital zoom, the COOLPIX 4100 gives users a high degree of control over the way they compose their shots. There is also the handy Macro mode, which can be used as close as 4cm from the subject to fill the frame. However you

compose, you'll find the COOLPIX 4100 achieves vibrant colors, faithful contrast, and impressive clarity - all made possible by Nikon's advanced image processing algorithms.

A range of other features makes shooting more fun. Five Color options include Standard color, Vivid color, Black-and-white, Sepia, and Cyanotype can be used to achieve creative results. A handy AF illumination assist function makes it easier to achieve sharp focus when shooting in poor light. A useful Blur Warning function alerts users of shots compromised by camera shake, giving them the choice to record them or not. The COOLPIX 4100 comes complete with two EN-MH1 rechargeable batteries, the MH-70 battery charger and Two-Year Canadian Warranty.

The Coolpix 4100 is scheduled for release in July 2004.
