Nikon COOLPIX A Digital Camera, HD 1080p, 16.2MP, 3” LCD Screen

Product information

Constructed of magnesium alloy with leather accents, the Nikon Coolpix A is a supercharged point-and-shoot that ofers the power of a DSLR at a fraction of the size. It packs in a DX 16.2 megapixel CMOS sensor with Nikon’s EXPEED 2 processor for true-to-life colour quality. As well as shooting crisp stills in bright or dim conditions, the Coolpix A also captures Full HD video footage and stereo audio with the touch of a button.

Key benefits:

  • The Coolpix A’s DX-format CMOS sensor has an effective pixel count of 16.2 megapixels to capturethe same superior image quality as a DSLR camera for high resolutions and sharp rendering. What's more, the body of the Coolpix A has not been equipped with an optical low-pass filter for sharper results.
  • The lens is a flexible fixed focal length of 18.5mm (equivalent to a 28mm angle of view in 35mm [135] format) lens well suited to a variety of scenes, from landscapes and architecture, to snapshots and photos of vacations. Constructed of seven elements in five groups, it ensures images exhibiting a good balance between high resolution and pleasing blur characteristics throughout the entire frame.
  • The Coolpix A is features a focus ring that allows you to focus in a way that suits your creative needs. In addition, the camera is equipped with an autofocus with manual override function for spontaneous adjustments.
  • Active D-Lighting prevents loss of detail in highlights and shadows for images exhibiting brightness similar to that seen with the naked eye when shooting scenes with extremes in both light and dark.
  • A NIKKOR lens, large sensor and powerful processor aren’t just great for pictures. This camera also makes capturing Full HD footage and making your own movies simple thanks to onboard editing.
  • A very bright, 3-inch 921k-dot TFT LCD monitor with wide viewing angle renders everything from menus to albums in fine detail.
  • This camera also supports a range of accessories like an optical viewfinder, filter adapters, GPS units, wireless dongles and more (each available separately).
  • Includes strap, battery, charger, shoe cover, USB cable and ViewNX 2 software.
