MEET NIKON’S NEW COOLPIX SUPER-ZOOMS THAT LOVE TO EXPLORE

London, United Kingdom, 17th January 2019: Nikon introduces two new COOLPIX super-zooms packed with powerful features and boasting NIKKOR optics for stunning images. From distant views to city streets, these lightweight, easy-to-use compact cameras deliver sharp wide-angle to super-telephoto images—even in low light.

The COOLPIX A1000 boasts a 35x optical zoom, a new built-in electronic viewfinder, and RAW image recording. A superb travel companion, this camera lets users move from atmospheric wide-angle to detailed super-telephoto shots with ease. It shoots 4K movies, and features a tilting touchscreen monitor that makes it easy to compose shots from intriguing angles.

The COOLPIX B600 bridge camera packs a 60x optical zoom, a large monitor, and a sturdy grip. Whether it’s a family trip to the park or a city break, this camera is a brilliant all-rounder. It shoots Full HD video in stereo sound. A host of in-camera creative modes make it simple to add an artistic touch to photos or movies.

Yoshihiro Katakami, Product Manager at Nikon UK, comments: “Both of these cameras are fantastic options for users who want to explore their creative side. The wide-angle to super-telephoto zoom range frees users to shoot almost any subject. Nikon’s 16 MP back-side illuminated CMOS sensor and Vibration Reduction help deliver superb results in low light. And SnapBridge makes it easy to share the best shots, or use a smart device to shoot remotely.”¹

    So, what is the difference between these and existing cameras?

    What is the resolution of these new (-ish) cameras?

    What differences will exist, between the A1000 and the A900, and, between the B600 and the B700?

    I note that, from the web pages at
    https://www.nikon.co.uk/en_GB/product/digital-cameras/coolpix/super-zoom-share/coolpix-a1000
    and
    https://www.nikon.co.uk/en_GB/product/digital-cameras/coolpix/bridge/coolpix-b600
    both cameras appear to have the reduced resolution of 16 megapixels.

    So, Nikon appears to be downgrading its cameras.

    the two cameras reported as new cameras in the report, appear to show that the existing cameras are at least as good as, and, in fact, better than, the two cammeras mentiioned in the report above.

    So, I believe that the published information reinforces the perception that Nikon is downgrading its cameras.
