DUBAI, UAE, March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Nikon today released two new compact cameras, adding to its fast-growing list of products under the COOLPIX camera range.
The COOLPIX A, is the first COOLPIX compact digital camera equipped with a DX-format CMOS sensor. This means it packs the superior rendering capabilities of a digital SLR camera with the portability of a compact digital camera. The camera's adoption of a seven-blade iris diaphragm further allows users to enjoy beautiful and natural blur characteristics. Various types of aberrations are effectively reduced, demonstrating superior rendering performance throughout the entire frame at all aperture settings. Moreover, the practical wide-angle lens is designed with optics that maximizes the performance while making sure the camera remains compact and portable.
The COOLPIX L320 is an easy-to-use digital compact camera with 16.1 effective megapixels and an ultra-high power 26x optical zoom.
