Nikon COOLPIX A Digital Camera

Nikon COOLPIX A Digital Camera

Nikon just introduced their flagship COOLPIX digital camera, called the COOLPIX A, which is their first compact model to incorporate a DX-format sensor, similar to those found in many of Nikon’s D-SLRs, which provides the highest image quality possible from a compact point-and-shoot. The new COOLPIX A digital camera offers a 16.2-megapixel DX-format sensor and all-glass 18.5mm (28mm equivalent) prime lens with an f/2.8 aperture, allowing users to shoot with a shallow depth of field to blur backgrounds for professional-looking photos. The camera’s quick AF performance and 4 frames-per-second (fps) burst help users to consistently capture any moment with outstanding image quality.

The COOLPIX A also offers advanced settings to allow shooters to have complete creative control to master nearly any shooting situation. With multiple Scene Modes, a familiar manual focus ring, full manual exposure controls (P,S,A,M), and the ability to shoot RAW/NEF image files, even a simple snapshot can be transformed into artistic expression.

Additionally, the COOLPIX A offers a variety of accessories to enhance the shooting experience, including the DF-CP1 Optical Viewfinder, the UR-E24 Adapter Ring for attaching lens hoods and filters, and the HN-CP18 metal Lens Hood, which helps protect the surface of the lens and restricts light from passing through without negatively influencing images. The camera also has a full size hot shoe port that makes the camera compatible with various accessories such as Nikon Speedlights.

Once a still or video has been captured, the COOLPIX A lets users share images instantly with family and friends when connected using the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter. This accessory pairs with the free downloadable Wireless Mobile Utility application, which enables users to transfer their images and videos to compatible smart devices and tablets for easy sharing and viewing with others.
