Nikon’s Coolpix series of digital compact cameras has always included lots of models to fit different user needs and to mold on every budget out there, but you can never have too many choices. Or can you? Well, that’s for you to decide, because the Coolpix line now includes six brand new point and shoot and superzoom cams.
The L28 will be the cheapest of the bunch, at just $119.95. The camera comes with a 5x optical zoom, a 3-inch TFT LCD screen, “simple shooting functions” and a very easy to grasp UI. Second on Nikon’s new chain of command is the $179.95 S5200, due out in February with a 16 MP CMOS sensor and a wide-angle 6x optical zoom.
The number three is dubbed S6500 and will cost $219.95 with a 12x zoom, 16 MP BSI CMOS sensor and built-in Wi-Fi. The $279.95 Coolpix L820 features the same average 16 MP sensor, but bumps the optical zoom to 30x while coming with an array of special effects like Glamour Retouch and Skin Softening.
The S9500 is set to cost $349.95 while sporting a 22x optical zoom, an 18.1 MP sensor and a Nikkor lens with Vibration Reduction. Finally, the Coolpix P520 is the most professional new cam from Nikon, costing $449.95 and featuring a state of the art 42x optical zoom and an 18.1 MP sensor.
Is it just me or was that the most exhausting report ever?
