New digicam on the way from Nikon!|

Imaging heavyweight launches teaser page for its latest digital camera, offers five digital cameras as prizes in launch contest...
Nikon Inc. has today taken the wraps off a teaser page for its latest digital camera, to be announced on February 21st - just before the annual Photo Marketing Association trade show in Orlando, Florida. The "Nikon Brain Twister Challenge" site offers a chance for five visitors who correctly guess the slogan for the new camera to win a digicam of their own. A link on Nikon's home page states: "It's coming February 21st. Win our new Coolpix camera." (Obviously, this suggests that the prize will be the newly announced camera model, although the competition rules state merely that each winner will receive "one Nikon digital camera selected by Nikon at our sole discretion").
The teaser page for the new camera will show a new clue each day from today, with a total of 14 clues suggesting the camera's slogan (today's clue shows an ice-cream cone). US residents aged 18 and over are permitted to guess the slogan once per day for the duration of the contest, which will end at 8AM Eastern time on February 21st, and the five winners will be announced by Nikon on its site within two weeks of that date.
