The Nikon P1000 Has a 24-3000mm Equivalent Lens

And you thought the Nikon P900's 83x zoom lens was impressive. Nikon has just announced the Nikon COOLPIX P100, the "new undisputed powerhouse of superzooms." It packs a ridiculous 125x zoom lens that has the 35mm-equivalent focal range of 24-3000mm -- the most powerful range available in a compact camera.

Nikon Refreshes Coolpix Lineup with New P&S, Superzoom and Rugged Models

At the beginning of the year, Nikon usually overhauls its entire Coolpix line of cameras, releasing new point-and-shoots and bridge cameras galore in an announcement fest that is usually swallowed up by other photography news.

Like we did last year, we'll give you a quick rundown of all the new models, which this year include two new 'professional' point-and-shoots, a couple of superzooms and a some upgraded rugged cameras.

Nikon Unveils AA Filterless D3300, 35mm f/1.8G FX Lens and New CoolPix Cameras

The CES announcement train keeps on rolling with another one we saw coming thanks to the ever-increasing accuracy of rumor sites. Nikon has officially launched the consumer-level D3300 -- complete with a few hardware upgrades and a new kit lens -- as well as the long-rumored 35mm f/1.8G full-frame lens and a few new CoolPix models.

Nikon Patent Shows Feature Designed for Camera Toss Photography

Is "camera toss" photography ready to go from fad to feature? Apparently Nikon thinks so. A recently published patent (No. 2012-189859) shows that the company has been thinking about building specific features into its compact and mirrorless cameras that would assist in using the technique.

A Closer Look at Nikon’s New Android-Powered S800c Compact Camera

Nikon made a big splash in the compact camera world yesterday by being the first major camera manufacturer to bake Android OS into a compact camera, the Coolpix S800c (Polaroid released one a while ago, but it's hardly a major player at the moment). The S800c looks and sounds interesting as far as specs and press releases go, but what's it actually like to use a camera that could be mistaken for a smartphone?

Nikon Unveils the S01 and P7700: Beauty and the Small-Sensored Beast

In addition to the Android-powered compact camera announced this morning, Nikon has also announced two other compact cameras in the Coolpix lineup. We'd call them "beauty and the beast", except for the fact that the beast isn't very beastly (on the inside).

Lets talk about the semi-"beast" first. It's the new P7700 -- successor to the P7100 -- which was leaked extensively prior to today. The main spec people wondered about was the sensor: whether it would be another weak point-and-shoot sensor, or whether the company would upgrade it to the Nikon 1 series size. Guess what? It's still weak.

First Photos of Nikon’s Upcoming High-End Coolpix P7700

Nikon Rumors published these first photographs of Nikon's upcoming high-end compact camera, the Nikon Coolpix P7700. The camera is the successor of the P7100, which was announced on August 24, 2011. This latest model will reportedly arrive almost exactly one year later, on August 22nd, 2012.

Nikon Coolpix L610: A Compact That Turns AA Batteries Into a Feature

Remember the days when portable electronic devices were mostly all powered by AA and AAA batteries? Consumers had to regularly purchase new batteries to keep their gadgets juiced -- a big sink for your hard earned money. When rechargeable batteries started becoming ubiquitous, they were touted as a feature for saving both time and money. All you had to do was plug your camera into the wall (or your battery into a charger) and a few hours later you were recharged.

Now things are moving back in the other direction. It's more difficult to find a quality AA-powered camera on the market, and it can be difficult for travelers to find a suitable power outlet while overseas. That's why Nikon's new CoolPix L610, freshly announced today, boasts about the fact that it supports AA batteries.

Nikon Unleashes Eight New Coolpix Cameras, “Pro” Model Still in Hiding

Nikon did launch a new Coolpix camera today -- eight of them, in fact -- but the rumored "Coolpix Pro" mirrorless camera was nowhere to be found. The bevy of compact cameras hits store shelves next month, and includes the P7100 -- a more polished successor to the P7000 announced around this time last year, and Nikon's answer to Canon's G-series line of prosumer compact cameras. The 10.1MP camera features a tilting 3-inch LCD screen on the back, manual controls, 720p video, and RAW capabilities. It'll be priced at $500.

Additional plusses are a 3-inch LCD screen and an optical viewfinder. The camera will arrive later this month at a price of $500.
