The Nikon 2013 Coolpix camera range
New cool compacts and superzoom cameras from Nikon.
Nikon has announced its Nikon Coolpix camera range for 2013 and it’s includes some incredibly advanced budget compacts as well as pro-level superzooms with high-end features.
Nikon Coolpix L28
For people wanting a sub-£100, high-quality snapper the Nikon Coolpix L28 has an impressive 20.1MP sensor with a usable 5x optical zoom. It aslo comes with a 3-inch LCD and is capable of shooting 720p HD video, all powered with AA batteries for convenience.
If you like a little more from your compacts then the next model is the Nikon Coolpix S9500.

The Coolpix S9500 uses a more advanced BSI CMOS 18.1MP sensors for enhanced picture quality and packs an impressive 22x optical zoom. Topping £300 it offers features such as a WiFi connection, GPS and a 3-inch OLED display, with the ability to grab 1080p Full HD video.
Want the power of a DSLR without the hassle?
The two new Nikon “superzoom“ models could be just what you’re after. The first is the Nikon P520, which has a 42x optical zoom, impressive 18.1MP BSI CMOS and a 3.2-inch tilt & Swivel VGA display.
Capable of 1080p video at 60fps it can also support WiFi through an optional adaptor on top of the £399.99 price tag.
There’s no price on the second Nikon L820 model, but this should be somewhat more affordable – closer to the £200 mark.
Again it has an impressive superzoom 30x optical lens, the BSI CMOS can capture 16MP shots and it has a 3-inch LCD. The lower price is possibly reflected in its use of AA batteries, though this does make it more flexible when travelling.
The Nikon L820 uses no less than four anti-blur systems and offers a smart portrait system too, which means it can auto-shoot when people smile and alert you to blinking blinkers.
Lastly is the new Nikon AW110, its tough water and shock resistant camera. With its quality BSI CMOS 16MP sensor its enclosed case can still offer a 5x optical zoom and 3-inch OLED.
Waterproof to 18m, shockproof to 2, and it can work in temperatures down to -10c. It even has built-in Wi-Fi networking, GPS, compass and altimeter. But the camera isn’t cheap costing £329.99.
All cameras will be available from the end of February.
