Ever wonder what would happen if you gave a dog a camera? You don’t have to anymore: Nikon did it, and the results are endearingly fun.
Nikon has just announced a slew of new Coolpix models—some good, others so-so—but one things is clear: Nikon is trying to pack in the specs at keen prices.
Tough, waterproof point-and-shoot cameras are supposed to be awesome. Small enough to fit in your pocket. Submersible to depths of 40 feet. Able to survive drops from heights above a man's head.
So Nikon announced about a million new cameras today, including its first go-anywhere, do-whatever-the-hell-you-want-to-it point and shoot. It's like when Gizmo eats after midnight, except with Nikon cameras instead gremlins. Here's a quick rundown on each of them.
An impending update to the mini-projector sporting S1000pj we adored is on its way, according to leaked images by German mag Foto Digital. The S1100pj will add a touch screen and remote control, as well as other unrevealed improvements.
Oh, I've waited for this day. The day Nikon delivered legit HD video. Not only does the P100 deliver full 1080p video in H.264, it shoots 120FPS bursts, and goes with a 10MP CMOS sensor for better low-light performance. Yeah.
Nikon's S series are their flashier point-and-shoots, and the S8000 is the splashiest: Super skinny, but it's got a 10x zoom lens, crazy crispy 3-inch, 921,000-dot display and it shoots 720p video. Plus, uh, look at it.
Nine years ago, as a young tech reporter at Time Magazine, I co-wrote a buyer's guide with the latest and greatest gear known to man. Today, it sounds ridiculous.
Nikon's Coolpix S70 promised to be a point and shoot built with a love reserved for high end smartphones—very thin, and packing a 3.5-inch OLED multitouch screen. Alas, Nikon forgot about one, tiny detail, the photography itself.
Nikon's new Coolpix point-and-shoot line leaked yesterday, but today Nikon unveiled the official prices and specs (though no release dates) for all four cameras, including the crazy S1000pj with the built-in projector.
Using a $77 Nikon Coolpix and a $60 latex balloon filled with helium, a team of teenage students captured these remarkable shots from 20 miles above the Earth's surface.
Nikon's L-series is the cheapo line. The L100 gives you 15X zoom and other not-too-shabby features for $280, while the L19 is the cheapest digital camera they've ever offered, at $110.
The rest of new Nikon's S-series aren't wholly remarkable, except for the S630, which packs in a 7x zoom lens. Why 7x? Nikon says that's the exact zoom level people asked for. Weird.
Nikon's just come up with news about what kind of deal you can get on some of its cameras on Black Friday. There's a $50 discount on the 10-megapixel Coolpix S550 (down to $150) and $100 off the 18x zoom P80, making it $300. But the D60 gets an even bigger chunk off with a $125 discount to $575. Sure there're a few…
Pixels for Pistols is a Toronto-based effort by the Henry's camera chain allowing anyone to trade in a gun, no questions asked, for a Nikon Coolpix S52 or Coolpix P60 camera. That's it. You give a gun and get a camera in an effort to get rid of unused guns that could be stolen and misused for crime. Lasting for four…
What looks to be the upcoming Nikon Coolpix P6000 has leaked, showing a picture of the high-end point-and-shoot as well as some of the specs and a purported release date of this August. Most notable is an absolutely-bananas 13.5-megapixel sensor, which should provide you with pictures large enough to print billboards…
I have a confession to make: I've never owned a digital camera. I've played around plenty with friend's point-and-shoots, and I have picked up a DSLR on occasion too. But I never saw the point of paying $300 for something my iPhone could pretty much do well enough. Now that summer's coming up and the price of…
