Nikon has added three new cameras to its line of point-and-shoot digital offerings. The first, and most advanced of these new cameras is the Coolpix A featuring a DX-format CMOS sensor. The camera has a wide-angle 18.5 mm F/2.8 lens which makes it appropriate for a range of shooting scenarios according to Nikon.
The Coolpix A also uses a seven-blade iris diaphragm allowing for natural blur characteristics. The camera has a resolution of 16.2-megapixels, can shoot 14-bit compressed RAW images, and can record full HD resolution digital movies. Nikon promises that the Coolpix S will deliver the kind of image quality typically reserved for D-SLR cameras
