    I do have flash installed. I tried again but still cannot see leh. When I click on it, the loading of the page was almost instantaneous. Other websites I can see the loading.... sign.

    Hmmm, don't know why.

    You should get a page with the Coolpix logo, and a popup window with the new Coolpix3 Flash Movie. And another popup window with the existing Coolpix cameras.

    I hope the design is like the current CP5k, not the CP2.5k.

    Actually, I'd prefer the Coolpix 9xx design rather than the CP5K design though the latter has a hotshoe and all. The 9xx swivel-lens is a lot more useful than the flimsy flip LCD.

    Well, no page with coolpix logo, no popups at all. But anyway, thanks for your help.

    Er, possible to give the actual url address? (If the url address is http://www.nikonusa.com/coolpix/, which means that I still cannot see. )

    Did you use 9xx series before? What most of the users hope the CP3 to be is the 9xx's swivel body! Not 5k one.
    Really hope that Nikon really does something this time! If not it will certainly hand its DC market to Canon, Olympus and Sony. Some rumours say that can be:
    a) Foveon X3?
    b) 3D photography?
    c) 3 axis moving lens part?
    d) Improved 995 + 5k's DC?
    e) None of above.

    Final answer?

    I really hope that it will be a big leap by Nikon again,if not, kaaboom, finish!

    Yeap that is what most of the current 9xx users wish for! (+ most of the flash brackets manufacturers' wishes also, i.e. Michael Offe, .....etc......)

    That's strange. Write an email to Nikon to complain.

    I hope they improve on the 8xx series.

    I'm shopping for a new digicam and I was in favour of Nikon 885 because of its size, build, metering, and controls. However, it lacked aperture/shutter priority and has only 2 apertures.

    Because of this, I'm looking at Olympus instead...

    Well, if you are able to wait another one month you can wait for this new one to appear. Hopefully it price like the around $800 .. that's my budget only
