The Coolpix A1000 camera from Nikon hosts a 35x optical zoom, RAW image recording and a new built-in electronic viewfinder. This camera is the perfect camera to use when you are travelling. It allows users to move from detailed super-telephoto shots to atmospheric wide-angle shots. This camera also shoots 4K movies and features a tilting touchscreen monitor that makes it easy to compose shots from intriguing angles.
35x Optical Zoom Lens
The Coolpix A1000 is stylish and equipped with a high-performance 35x optical zoom Nikkor lens that covers 24mm wide-angles to 840mm super-telephoto ranges (equivalent focal lengths in 35mm format). With the Dynamic Fine Zoom feature, sharpness is preserved throughout the digital zoom range, which can be expanded up to 70x, or a focal length equivalent to approximately 1680mm (in 35mm format), ensuring sharp and clear rendering even with super-telephoto shooting. Also, the A1000 is equipped with a macro close-up mode that allows users to enjoy macro photography when shooting as close as 1 cm to the lens at the maximum wide-angle position.
Superior Image Quality
The Coolpix A1000 has an effective pixel count of 16.0 megapixels. Even in dimly lit or dark surroundings its backside illumination CMOS sensor can collect enough light, to capture a wide clarity of scenes with superior image quality. It also supports a higher maximum sensitivity, with a range of standard sensitivities of ISO 100-6400. This camera is also equipped with a lens-shift vibration reduction (VR) function. This ensures that images are sharp and clear, even in dark or dimly lit scenes. Also, further support for RAW (NRW) recording has been added, allowing users of the Coolpix A1000 to use Capture NX-D, Nikon's RAW processing software, to create beautiful photographic works without compromising image quality.
3.4K UHD Movie Recording
With its ability to record high-resolution 4K UHD (3480 x 2160 pixel) movies, the Coolpix A1000 captures the finest details. The camera's hybrid vibration reduction (VR) system, which combines lens-shift VR with electronic VR, can also be used with 4K UHD recording. Enabling smoother and clearer hand-held and telephoto zoom recording. Also, the Active D-Lighting function, which effectively reduces the loss of details in highlights and shadows in scenes exhibiting great contrast, such as those that are backlit, can also be applied during movie recording.
Enhanced User Friendliness
The Coolpix A100 is equipped with an approximately 1166k-dot equivalent electronic viewfinder. The electronic viewfinder has an eye sensor that automatically switches the display between viewfinder and camera monitor as the camera is lowered or raised to the eye. This allows the user to concentrate on the intended subject, aiding the process of composing shots, it also helps to reduce camera shake.
3-Inch Tilting Monitor
Shooting from high and low angles is easier with the tilting mechanism and the approximately 1036k-dot LCD monitor, which supports a high-definition display and intuitive touch operation, enables smooth camera operations from shooting to image playback. Also, the monitor uses an anti-reflection coating that makes viewing under strong lighting easier, which ensures better visibility even when outdoors in harsh light.
The Coolpix A1000 is also equipped with a Snap-back zoom button which temporarily shifts zoom position to the wide-angle side to some degree for easy framing when shooting fast-moving subjects or during super-telephoto shooting. Other functions include aperture, ISO sensitivity, exposure compensation or white balance setting can also be assigned to the Side zoom control.
