The COOLPIX A belongs to the ground-breaking fixed-lens camera series of the renowned company Nikon where for the very first time, a DX-format image sensor appears in the COOLPIX brand. This resulted in a very interesting proposition for street photographers who are looking for large-sensor image quality but without the added bulk of an SLR.
Coming out in the market niche that already has established competitors, the COOLPIX A comes a little smaller and weighs a couple of grams less than its competitor, making it very suitable as a street camera that you can just lug anywhere, anytime. Aside from being an APS-C compact with a fixed 28mm equivalent F2.8 lens, it was also built around a 16MP CMOS sensor whose microlenses were designed to work with the camera’s wide angle lens while doing away with the optical low pass filter.
The COOLPIX A camera brings the dazzling image quality of Nikon’s DX-format DSLR image sensor and the superb optical quality of the NIKKOR fixed frame lens, making this line’s advanced compact performance worth investing into. Besides creating stunning photos and full HD 1080p videos even in low light, the Nikon COOLPIX A allows you to build your capabilities over time using compatible Nikon accessories while making each moment a masterpiece.
