      News

    Two new Nikon Coolpix A1000 and B600 cameras, which offer 35× and 60× zooms, can be treats for the amateurs of big zooms. Both cameras have been equipped with the CMOS BSI 16MP sensors.

     

    A1000 is a bit more versatile model from the two Nikon cameras described today. It enables both recording wide-angle shots and big-zoom shots. The camera has been equipped with the Nikkor lens, which offers 35× optical zoom with the equivalent of 24 - 840mm and the variable light of f/3.4 - 6.9. At the back of the housing, there is a useful zoom lever. There is also a fast lens retract button.

    If the 35× zoom is not enough for someone, we also have the Dynamic Fine Zoom function at our disposal, thanks to which we will achieve the equivalent of the focal length of 1680mm. During photographing, we will use the optical vibration reduction and during recording films we will use a hybrid stabilization system.

    2). Nikon A1000

     

    The camera’s CMOS 1/2.3" (4,8 × 3,6mm) sensor has the resolution of 16MP and it ensures the ISO sensitivity of 6400. Taken photographs will be saved in the RAW format. The films can be recorded in 4K UHD (with the speed of 30f/s) or in Full HD (with the speed of 60f/s). A function which is worth mentioning is "D-Lighting", thanks to which the camera will be able to extract more details in the brightest and darkest portions of the frame.  

     

    Coolpix A1000 is equipped with the electronic viewfinder with the resolution of 1166px and the 3" touch LCD screen with the resolution of 1,036,000px – the screen can be rotated vertically. The ergonomics of the camera is ensured by the function button, the PASM knob and the knob responsible for exposition compensation.  The connection with mobile devices is facilitated by the SnapBridge application. The camera’s body has the dimensions of 114,2 × 71,7 × 40,5mm and it weighs 330g.

     

     

     

    The second from the cameras described today is a bit more radical offer. The primary trait of Nikon Coolpix B600 is its range since the camera offers 60× zoom with the functional equivalent of 24 - 1440mm. With the use of the Dynamic Fine Zoom function, this value can be increased to 2880mm.

    3). Nikon B600

     

    The heart of the camera is the CMOS BSI sensor with the resolution of 16MP, which is supported by the EXPEED image processor. The photographs in the RAW format can be taken with the sensitivity up to ISO 6400. B600 offers 19 thematic programs and the creative mode which consists of 36 different color effects.

    4). Nikon B600

     

    Nikon Coolpix B600 does not have some important functions which we will find in A1000 – the camera does not have a viewfinder, the LCD (3", 921,000px) screen is mounted permanently and the films recorded with the use of B600 will have the maximum resolution of Full HD/30p. The camera has been equipped with a quick AF, the PASM knob and the Snap-back function, useful in the work with the camera of big zoom range. B600 is compatible with the SnapBridge software, its dimensions are 121,6 × 81,5 × 99,2mm and it weighs 500g.

     

    The cameras are to appear on sale this month and they are not available in USA.

      DESCRIPTION
      Nikon Coolpix A1000 is equipped with the in-built Nikkor lens with 35× optical zoom with the equivalent of focal length of 24-840mm and the variable light of f/3.4-6.9. The effective and smooth change of focal length is enabled by a side zoom lever and a quick lens reverse button. Thanks to the Dynamic Fine Zoom function, we can have additional zoom for the equivalent of the focal length of 1680mm. Taking photographs at such focal length is possible thanks to the optical stabilization.

      The camera is equipped with the 16MP CMOS which ensures the maximum ISO sensitivity of 6400. It also enables saving RAW (NEF) files and recording films in 4K @ 30p or in Full HD with the speed of 60f/s.

      The new Coolpix A1000 is a very compact construction. The body's dimensions are 114.2 × 71.7 × 40.5mm and it weighs 330g. The camera has the electronic viewfinder with the resolution of 1.1 million points and the 3'' rotating touch LCD screen with the resolution of 1,036,000 points. We also have wireless functions at out disposal, thanks to which we can connect the camera with the Nikon SnapBridge application.
