This entry was posted on Wednesday, February 1, 2012.
Nikon Coolpix S30
The camera is claimed to be toddler-proof. How, exactly? The camera is shock-proof and waterproof. This is being touted as a 'family camera' by Nikon. The specs of the Coolpix S30 aren't too impressive, but the 'family' aspect of it has made it an interesting addition in the new Coolpix lineup.
The Coolpix S30 is drop proof up to 2.6 feet and is waterproof till a depth of 9.8 feet. This means that your kid can throw the camera in the pool (assuming it is thrown not at a depth greater than 9.8 feet) and nothing will happen to it. Some specs of the Coolpix S30 are: its 10-megapixel CCD sensor and a 3X-optical zoom lens. The camera is due in February and will cost $120.
Nikon Coolpix L810
The predecessor of Coolpix L810 was the camera which was claimed to be the best selling Nikon camera in the year 2011, the Nikon Coolpix L120. The L120 packed a 21X-optical zoom and was relatively simple to handle for users. The Coolpix L810 has a 26X-ultra-wide-angle lens, a 16-megapixel CCD sensor and a variety of scene modes. It operates on 4 AA batteries and also has a secondary lens-barrel-mounted-zoom control, 720p video and a 3-inch LCD. The camera is slated for February and will cost $280.
Nikon Coolpix S4300
The camera is one of the three low-budget cameras about to be released by Nikon this year. It has a 3-inch touchscreen and a 6X-optical zoom lens which is optically stabilized, a 16-megapixel CCD sensor and 720p video shooting capability. The camera will be priced at $170 and is to be released in February.
Nikon Coolpix S3300
This is exactly similar to the S4300, but it does not have a touchscreen. The S3300 will be released in February and will cost $140. The camera will be available in red, silver, pink or purple colors.
Nikon Coolpix L26
The ninth camera is the L26; very wallet-friendly. Priced at $120, this lower-end camera is powered by 2 AA batteries, and features a 16-megapixel sensor, 5X-optical zoom lens and 720p video recording. The Coolpix L26 will be available in red, black or silver colors this month.
