PhotographyBLOG Reviews the Nikon Coolpix AW100 Camera

"The AW100 is Nikon’s first foray into the weather-proof camera market and is is waterproof to 10 meters, shock-proof to 1.5 meters, and freezeproof to as low as -10°C (14°F). The Coolpix AW100 also has a 16-megapixel back illuminated CMOS sensor, a 5x, 28-140mm equivalent zoom lens with lens-shift vibration reduction, 3-inch 460K-dot LCD monitor, full 1080p HD video with stereo sound, 3fps burst shooting, built-in GPS, a world map display and an electronic compass."

Once again, does anyone really like Nikon compacts? Image quality on the Coolpixes in the last seven years have ranged from average to downright terrible, and the cameras themselves are rarely a joy to use. The AW100 does not do much to shake off this reputation, but at least it as less competition since it is one of the few waterproof and shockproof compact cameras in the market (it seems only Panasonic, Olympus and Pentax have updated theirs). Still, at least it will survive a drop where most cameras will not!

Nikon Announces Six Coolpix Cameras

Posted by Lee Yuan Sheng in "Digital Home Hardware & Accessories" @ 09:34 AM

Nikon has announced a whole bunch of cameras, starting with the Coolpix P7100. Following up on the not-very-successful P7000, the new camera features the same 10 megapixel CCD (at a slightly larger 1/1.7" size) and optically stabilised 7.1x 28-200mm equivalent f/2.8-5.6 lens, but updates the body styling to include a countered handgrip and a front command dial and a tilting 3" VGA LCD. More importantly, Nikon promises improved performance with the camera, which really was the P7000's main problem. Other features like 720p video and a hotshoe are still present. Retails for US$500 in September. More cameras after the break!
