The ideal companions for the everyday image capture, the new Nikon COOLPIX cameras provide endless possibilities for any occasion
TOKYO – A new range of colourful compact cameras dedicated to preserving special moments on-the-go, the Spring 2016 COOLPIX series is set to ensure reliable and fuss-free image capture, as announced by Nikon Corporation today.
The A100 and A10 are pocket-sized companions for hassle-free photography, producing high-quality images with creative image-editing functions, and encased in slim, stylish forms for comfortable handling. Versatile and easy to use, they inject fun and convenience into everyday photography, with the same reliable Nikon performance that users have come to love and enjoy.
Compact and simple without the frills, the A100 introduces handy features to capture and frame holiday adventures and precious family times for great photographs. This initial camera in the new 2016 Spring COOLPIX line-up features a reliable NIKKOR lens capable of 5x optical zoom to snap photos of scenic landscapes and fun group shots, and a 10x Dynamic Fine Zoom*1 for impressive, detailed close-ups.
Preserve cherished moments, from a toddler’s day out at the park to a first road trip adventure, with remarkable image and video quality aided by 20.1 effective megapixels*2 and HD movie recording in 720p format, all using the simple touch of a button. This ease of use is further supported by the Target Finding autofocus with face detection and subject prediction technology, ensuring that even the most fleeting smile is beautifully captured in a crowded party.
Be it capturing a pet’s playful and adorable moment at home or snapping a shot of a rainbow in the sky, the Scene Auto Selector smartly selects the most appropriate scene mode from 15 options for convenience and the best results with every shot. Creative image expression to add a personal touch is further achieved with eight Special Effects options to choose from during shooting, and the introduction of the new user-friendly creative slider for Glamour Retouch helps make image-editing after shooting more intuitive and simple.
With dimensions of 94.5(W) x 58.6(H) x 19.8(D) mm, the camera boasts a slim profile with its 19.8 mm thickness, making it both comfortable to hold, and nifty for daily captures on the go. To last through an exciting day or an unforgettable night of up to approximately 250 shots, a long battery life also comes with the A100’s battery, the EN-EL19.
The Nikon COOLPIX A100 comes in four shades of colours to fit into a bag or purse: Silver, Black, Purple and Red.
The A10 balances functionality and fun for users looking for versatility and value in a camera. Made for all ages, it ensures great image quality and easy shooting with a 16.1 effective megapixels*2 CCD sensor and a suite of intuitive features.
Image creation is supported by a 5x optical zoom so users are never too far away from capturing exciting travel activities or a relaxing afternoon at the park, while also being assured of sharp, vibrant captures with the aid of high-performance NIKKOR lens and a blur-reduction function. These moments can also be preserved with HD movie recording in 720p format with the push of a dedicated movie-record button. Whether close-ups of pets, or sunsets at dusk, the camera helpfully recommends a shooting mode with the Scene Auto Selector function, allowing users to optimise their shots with the most suitable scene mode.
For a dash of artistic flair, the Special Effects such as ‘Nostalgia Sepia’ and a newly added ‘Mirror’ option allow users to picture their creations during shooting. The excitement continues in post-shooting with Quick Effects for choices of fisheye and toy camera for a touch of whimsy with simple and easy-to-use editing functions.
The A10, powered by readily-available AA-size batteries, incorporates the favourably received rounded form of the L series COOLPIX line, featuring elegant curves on the front cover of a high-quality camera body. With dimensions of 96.4(W) x 59.4(H) x 28.9 (D) mm, its compact size and easy-to-hold grip ensures comfortable usage for hands of any size.
The Nikon COOLPIX A10 comes in two colours to capture memories: Silver and Black.
