Nikon has announced three new batches of cameras, the first group being the Coolpix L810, L26, L25, and S30. The last one, the S30, is shockproof and waterproof.
The L810 features a 26x zoom, the equivalent of 22.5-585, and that range covers just about every situation mere mortals would come up against – from groups to distant wildlife. VR image stabilization technology helps eliminate blur in photos and movies, regardless of focal length.
The camera offers 19 scene modes including Scene Auto Selector, which optimizes camera settings automatically, and the Smart Portrait System, which helps make every portrait flattering.
Additionally, the L810 features a Sports Continuous Shooting mode to capture fast-moving subjects.
Movies are recorded at 720p HD with stereo sound.
The camera has a 3-inch LCD.
The S30 is a new type of camera for Nikon, with “proof” construction and a simple-to-use interface at an affordable price point.
It boasts a shockproof (up to 80 cm) and waterproof* (up to 3 m) exterior, a 10.1-megapixel image sensor, high-quality HD movies, a 3x zoom lens, and easy-to-use modes like the Smart Portrait System.
The L26 is touted by Nikon as the ideal camera for beginners or casual photographers who might not use a camera often, but know they want solid image quality when they do.
This point and shoot camera offers automatic scene modes, a 5x (26-130 mm equivalent) optical Zoom-Nikkor lens, 720p HD video, and 3-inch LCD screen, vibration reduction as well as smart portrait technology.
The L25 has a slim body, 14.0-megapixel sensor, 5x optical Zoom-Nikkor glass lens, HD (720p) movie recording at the touch of a button, and 19 scene modes.
The Nikon Coolpix L810 – available in black or red – is scheduled to be available this month at a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $279.95.
The S30 has an MSRP of $119.95, and will be available in white, blue and pink.
The L26 will be available in black or red at an MSRP of $119.95.
