Nikon COOLPIX P7800 announced, Price, Specs, Release Date, Where to Buy

Nikon COOLPIX P7800

Nikon just announced the Coolpix P7800, which sits at the top of its compact camera lineup, replacing last year’s P7700 as flagship zoom camera. The P7800 is extremely similar to its nominal predecessor, the most notable change being the addition of an electronic viewfinder.

For those with a short memory, P-series cameras prior to the P7700 had optical viewfinders. The P7700 got rid of that entirely, but gave users a fully articulating LCD in exchange. On the Coolpix P7800 the viewfinder has returned, in electronic form. The EVF has 921,000 dots and covers 100% of the frame.

Other specifications are more or less unchanged compared to the P7700. The camera is built around a 28-200mm (equivalent) F2-4 zoom lens, and features a fully-articulating rear LCD screen, and has plenty of manual control and exposure options, at an MSRP of $549.99.

Nikon COOLPIX S02 announced, Price, Specs, Release Date, Where to Buy

Nikon COOLPIX S02

Along with COOLPIX P7800, Nikon just announced Coolpix S02 – a tiny metal-bodied 13MP compact camera with a smartphone-sized CMOS sensor and 2.7-inch touch-sensitive LCD. The S02 does not accept memory cards, but comes with 7.3GB of built-in storage. The entire package, built around a 3x (30-90mm equiv) zoom lens is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. Apart from the new sensor, the most notable improvement compared to the S01 is the addition of 1080p video. Curiously, for a camera so clearly aimed at ‘hip’ and ‘stylish’ people, the S02 does not feature any connectivity options, either built-in or via optional accessories.
