Nikon Announces Trio Of Long - Zoom Coolpix Cameras


Nikon announces trio of long-zoom Coolpix camerasNikon has announced a trio of new superzooms, two of which support 4K/UHD video capture. All three have a new naming scheme, with the A-series replacing the 'L' cameras and the B-series taking over for the 'P' models.


All three cameras offer what Nikon calls SnapBridge, which combines Wi-Fi (with NFC) and Bluetooth. By using a low energy version of Bluetooth, your phone can maintain a constant connection with the camera, meaning that you don't have to re-pair every time you want to share photos.

The compact Coolpix A900, which offers a 20MP BSI CMOS sensor, 35X (24-840mm equiv.) F3.4-6.9 lens, 3" tilting LCD and 4K video capture at 30p. It will be available in silver and black at a price of $399.

Next is the Coolpix B500, which loses 4K capture but uses four AA batteries for power - a real rarity these days. It sports a 40X (22.5-900mm equiv.) F3.0-6.5 lens, 16MP BSI CMOS sensor, tilting 3" LCD and 1080/30p video recording. Your color choices for this model are black and red and the estimated selling price is $299.

The B700 has the most zoom of the bunch, with a 60X (24-1440mm equiv.) F3.3-6.5 lens, 20MP BSI CMOS sensor, fully articulating, touch-enabled 3" LCD, a 921k-dot electronic viewfinder and 4K video capture. You can pick one up for $499 in black only.

All three models will be available later this spring.
