We’ve had a chance to use the Nikon Coolpix A - the company’s DX-format, fixed-lens compact. The Coolpix A features a 16MP APS-C sensor with no optical low-pass filter and a 28mm equivalent F2.8 prime lens. Nikon has done a lot of work to make the Coolpix A consistent with its DSLRs, from its interface to its compatibility with accessories. Here is what we think.
New mid-range, enthusiast-focused APS-C DSLR from Nikon is here - the D7100. There is also a cool new radio remote control- The WR-1 that lets you remotely control multiple cameras capturing stills and videos, even time-lapse sequences.
The D7100 promises high resolution by making do without an optical low-pass filter in front of its 24MP CMOS sensor. It gains a more sophisticated 51-point autofocus system and a 7fps 1.3x cropped shooting mode that provides a 2x crop compared to a 35mm system. The D7100 has a recommended price of $1,599/£1,299/€1,399 with 18-105mm F3.5-5.6 VR lens.

We’ve posted our in-depth, 20-page review of the Nikon D3200 entry-level DSLR.
The Nikon D3200 is the company’s 24MP entry-level DSLR that can be used with an optional WU-1a Wi-Fi module. The camera can shoot up to 1080p30 video (rather than the D3100’s 24p) and has a 920k dot LCD, up from 230k dots. Beyond this, and improved continuous shoot rate despite the pixel-count hike, the biggest change is the ability to add the Wi-Fi unit.
At 36MP, the D800 is the highest resolution camera you can buy without making the step up to medium format, it’s also one of the first DSLRs to offer uncompressed video output.
Despite these drastic increases in capability over the D700, Nikon’s latest full-frame offering will be immediately familiar to any one who’s shot with one of the company’s high-end cameras. So what’s the D800 like to shoot with and does all that resolution render its competition redundant?
The P7100 is Nikon’s second attempt at producing an enthusiast compact to go toe-to-toe with Canon’s popular G-series cameras. The P7000 showed some promise but slow, quirky operation meant it fell short of the well-established Canon it so clearly mimicked. With the P7100 Nikon has put much of this right and added even more direct control. It offers the largest zoom range in its class, but is this enough to make it stand-out in a highly capable field?
Fantastic video shot with the latest Nikon D4 professional DSLR by Corey Rich. With inputs from some of the world’s best athletes the video makes you travel through water, road, picturesque mountains. Really cool.
