Rumors of Nikon Competitor Against Canon G11
Canon has been somewhat dominating the compact camera market recently, with great offerings such as the Canon Powershot S90 and G11 under the prosumer range. But it seems like Nikon isn't going to take this lying down. According toe a Nikon UK's senior product manager, Kevin Egan, the company is looking to develop a Coolpix camera to pit against the G11's functionality.
