It is now Nikon’s turn to venture into digital cameras equipped with a large sensor, while continuing to offer a small, compact body. Launching Nikon Coolpix A puts Nikon on good footing with other competitors, such as Fujifilm and Canon.
As compact as it is, the Coolpix A offers nonetheless a 16-megapixel DX-format camera, the same format Nikon offers in several other reflex models.
Although the Coolpix A is a fixed-lens camera, just like the Fujifilm X100, it provides a wider angle (18.5 mm, equivalent to a 28 mm angle in 35 mm format) and a slightly less impressive maximum aperture of F2.8.
The device also offers a 3-inch screen, the ability to capture RAW images, and an amazing speed of up to 4 frames per second. The Coolpix A is Wi-Fi compatible through an optional module sold separately.
Priced at $1,149, the Coolpix A is not exactly for everyone, but experienced photographers might find this camera an interesting option as a spare unit.
