Nikon High-End Compact Coming this Month

Nikon High End Compacts coming in FEB image

Nikon high-end compact cameras finally coming on CP+ show at February 2016.  According to latest rumors floating over the rumor websites the Nikon will soon announce three new compact camera with large sensors.

As we have published earlier also that Nikon coolpix range update is dead from almost 2 years so Nikon desprertly need to put a life in Nikon high*end compact series camera.

The Nikon P78000 was the last compact camera with 1/1.7inch sensor, we do expect a Nikon P8000 soon with large 1″ sensor and high end specification that matches the Sony RX100 and Canon GX series compact cameras with 1″ sensor.

Nikon coolpix A II update is also expected and at the mean time we do belive that Nikon will announce a new APS-C based compact camera with 24 Megapixel CMOS APS-C sensor and high end image processor.

Nikon may announce a completely new range of compact cameras with different names as Canon did a year ago and introduced new GX series line-up, Sony also announced new high-end compact series starting with RX keywords.

Based on latest rumor Nikon will announce at least two new latest models in the upcoming CP+ show in Japan (February 25-28).

Take a look at the list of expected core specification and cameras models

  • New line of premium compact cameras with a new name (not Coolpix for sure)
  • 1″ sensor, but some models may have APS-C and even full frame (maybe in the future?)
  • Nikkor branded non-interchangeable lenses. The first three versions will be (35mm equivalent focal lengths):
    • Wide angle version: 18-50mm f/1.8-2.8
    • Normal range: 24-85mm f/1.8-2.8 (see lens patent here)
    • Superzoom: 24-500mm f/2.8-5.6
  • Compatible with Nikon Speedlights (cameras will have hot shoe)
  • Optional/external EVF
  • Wide range of accessories will be available
  • The new product line will be marketed as “always in your bag” and will be targeting advanced/semi-professional photographers

Why do believe the rumor we have received is true because Few months ago an interview to Nikon representatives said

Q: Any new Coolpix A? Any plans to respond to Canon and Sony’s 1-inch sensor fixed-lens compact cameras?
A: Sony’s 1-inch CSC is definitely very successful. We will have a competing product in the future.

Nikon Coolpix A Finally Discontinued

nikon-coolpix-A-imgNikon coolpix A finally dicountinued by Nikon, the camera production now completely stopped and retail outlet such as B&H giving massive discount on the coolpix A to clear the remaining stock.

Finally its a silent confirmation from Nikon that successor of coolpix A is coming, as you all know we have published earlier that upcoming coolpix A will carry a new sensor and advance image processor — Nikon Coolpix A II to feature 24.2MP DX-Format CMOS Sensor

Nikon Coolpix A II / 10000 to feature 24.2MP DX-Format CMOS Sensor

waiting-for-upgrade-imgNikon Professional compact cameras update is due for more than 1 year, but why we picked this topic today since according to email we received from a new source

Nikon will use 20.2 MP 1 inch in upcoming large sensor compact camera  and 24.2MP DX-Format CMOS Sensor in the successor of Nikon coolpix A, that clearly means that the upcoming Nikon coopix A II camera will get a 24.2 MP sensor and Nikon P8000 (or may be a completely new model) will get a large 1″ inch 20 MP sensor.

Why do believe the rumor we have received is true because Few days ago an interview to Nikon representatives said

Q: Any new Coolpix A? Any plans to respond to Canon and Sony’s 1-inch sensor fixed-lens compact cameras?
A: Sony’s 1-inch CSC is definitely very successful. We will have a competing product in the future.

The source also said that the AF system of the camera will remain same, however the AF speed will increase due to new image processor and advance AF algorithm.

We have used the rumored models name on the title, but we are not sure the upcoming models will have same name or different.

Fujifilm X100s vs Nikon Coolpix A vs Ricoh GR

Fujifilm X100s vs Nikon Coolpix A vs Ricoh GR – Best APS-C Compact camera of 2014

Planning to buy your first APS-C sensor compact camera?, we have compared best three compact camera specification and high ISO images below…


Sensor: Fujifilm features advance 16 Mp APS-C X-Trans CMOS II Sensor, X-Trans sensor uses a unique randomized pixel array in order to avoid the use of a resolution-reducing optical low-pass filter, +1 you also get bright F2.0 lens (1-stop bright lens compared to both competitors ).

Both Nikon coolpix A and Rioch GR have same type of sensor 16.2 MP CMOS sensor, even the lens used in both the camera features same F2.8 Aperture, but the Rioch GR doesn’t have low-pass filter so we will sure see sharp images from Ricoh GR camera compared to coolpix A.

From the specification comparison we can clearly see that Fuji will produce better images compared to both the camera due to 1-stop bright lens and  absence of low-pass filter.

AF-system: The Fuji X100s have active phase AF point within the sensor, the Intelligent Hybrid AF system of Fuji X100s uses both contrast- and phase-detection methods to acquire focus quickly and accurately, on the other hand both Nikon coolpix A and Rioch GR uses traditional contrast based AF system..will do slower AF than Fuji X100s.

The continuous shooting speed of Fujifilm X100s is faster (6fps) compared to Nikon coolpix A(4fps) and Ricoh GR(4fps).

Image stabilization: The Image stabilization only available in Nikon coolpix A, Fuji X100s and Ricoh GR doesn’t have built-in or lens based Image Stabilization.

Video: The Fuji X100s can shoot Full HD videos @ 60fps, Nikon coolpix A and Ricoh GR limited to 30 fps only.

 Viewfinder: The X100s comes with optical and electronic viewing tools are incorporated into the unique Hybrid Viewfinder, eye-sensor is located on the viewfinder to automatically turn off the rear 2.8″ LCD monitor during eye-level viewing. Ricoh GR and Nikon coolpix A doesn’t have viewfinder.

Finally Image Comparison


From the image comparison above we can clearly see the Fuji X100s is showing excellent results at High ISO. The Ranking based on image quality is …
#1 Fujifilm X100s
#2 Ricoh GR
#3 Nikon Coolpix A

Verdict: The clear winner of specification and image comparison is FUjifilm X100s, after that we have affordable Rioch GR and finally at the bottom we have Nikon coolpix A.
