Nikon comes up with advanced Coolpix A camera
Nikon has created a new Cooplix addition – the advanced Coolpix A camera that has become the company’s first camera to pack a massive DX-format sensor.
The Coolpix A is the home to a 16.2 MP APS-C CMOS sensor that is capable of capturing 12-bit and 14-bit RAW images and sensitivity that ranges from ISO 100 to ISO 25600. The camera can also shoot 1080p videos. Up front the user will find a 18.5 mm lens (equivalent to 28 mm on a full frame camera) with a f/2.8 maximum aperture, which allows the Coolpix A to capture great pictures in low light or pictures with a shallow depth of field. Users can also attach various accessories such as additional Nikon flashes thanks to the built-in i-TTL compatible full-sized hot shoe mount.
As any other camera out there the Nikon Coolpix A offers a number of pre-set modes and settings including a manual focus ring, full manual controls and multiple scene modes. If you wish to shoot quickly moving objects then you can use the 4 frame-per-second burst mode.
A downside of the Nikon Coolpix A is the lack of an optical viewfinder but users can find one separately for approximately USD 450.
The Nikon Coolpix A will be available in stores near you by the end of March 2013. The camera will be available in either black or silver and will sell for USD 1100.
