The Nikon Coolpix A is not the only new digital compact camera that Nikon has announced today as the camera is actually accompanied by two other digital cameras: the Coolpix P330 and Coolpix S3500.
A follow up to last year’s Coolpix P310, the new Coolpix P330 is packed with a 1/1.7-inch 12.2-megapixels backside illuminated CMOS sensor that Nikon claimed to have superior low-light performances and a 24-120mm f/1.8-5.6 lens complete with lens-based Vibration Reduction (VR) image stabilization. Additionally, the new camera also supports RAW shooting, full HD 1080p video capture and wireless photo transfer to Wi-Fi-enabled devices via the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter.
If the Coolpix P330 might be designed for slightly more advanced users, the new Nikon Coolpix S3500 on another hand is meant for budget-oriented users. It is equipped with 20.1-megapixels CCD sensor and a wide-angle 7x optical zoom lens also with lens-based VR image stabilization. Furthermore, it also able to capture video at 720p HD resolution.
As per Nikon Coolpix A, we have yet to receive any information regarding their availability in Malaysia. Nevertheless, both cameras will be made available in United States sometime within this month with a price tag of RM 1,179 (USD 379.95) and RM 435 (USD 139.95) respectively.
