Nikon ha annunciato l'uscita di due nuove fotocamere compatte, la Coolpix B600 che va a colmare la lacuna tra le attuali fotocamere Coolpix B500 e B700 di Nikon, mentre l'A1000 come successore a bassa risoluzione di A900 di Nikon.
Nikon Coolpix B600
E' una fotocamera bridge con zoom ottico 60x e una distanza focale equivalente compresa tra 24-1440 mm con la tecnologia Hybrid Vibration Reduction (VR) di Nikon e offre una modalità macro dedicata.
Le specifiche complete per la B600 non sono ancora state rilasciate, ma dovrebbe avere un sensore da 16 megapixel in grado di riprese video 1080p30. Dovrebbe disporre anche del Active D-Lighting di Nikon, progettato per ridurre la perdita di dettagli nelle luci e nelle ombre delle scene ad alto contrasto.
Sul retro della fotocamera è presente un monitor LCD da 9 pollici a 921k punti con rivestimento antiriflesso e le modalità creative per foto e video.
Nikon Coolpix A1000
E' una fotocamera compatta con zoom ottico 35x e una distanza focale equivalente compresa tra 24 e 840 mm e come la B600, utilizza la tecnologia Hybrid VR di Nikon e l'Active D-Lighting.
All'interno dell'A1000 è presente un sensore CMOS retroilluminato da 16 megapixel da 1/2,3 pollici con una gamma di sensibilità standard ISO da 100 a 6400, ha la possibilità di scattare foto Raw nel formato NRW di Nikon ed è in grado di registrare video 4K a 30pfs.
L'A1000 è dotato di un mirino elettronico equivalente a 1166k punti e di un display LCD touchscreen inclinabile da 3 pollici da 1036kp. Nikon ha anche incluso la sua tecnologia SnapBridge, il che significa che l'A1000 può essere accoppiato tramite Wi-Fi e Bluetooth integrati con smartphone e tablet supportati per rivedere e trasferire foto ovunque.

Nikon releases the high-power zoom COOLPIX B600
A versatile camera that covers wide-angle to super-telephoto shooting for imaging experiences simply not possible with a smartphone
TOKYO - Nikon Corporation (Nikon) is pleased to announce the release of the COOLPIX B600, a compact digital camera equipped with a high-performance 60x optical zoom NIKKOR lens.
The COOLPIX B600 employs a 60x optical zoom NIKKOR lens that covers a range of equivalent focal lengths beginning at wide-angle 24 mm*1 and ending at super-telephoto 1440 mm*1 (Dynamic Fine Zoom further expands the zoom ratio to 120x*2), making it possible for users to enjoy super-telephoto photography without compromising sharp and clear resolution.
The camera has an effective pixel count of 16.0 megapixels and supports a maximum sensitivity of ISO 6400. Its combination of backside illumination CMOS sensor and EXPEED high-performance image-processing engine captures superior still and video quality, even at high sensitivities. The COOLPIX B600 is also equipped with a variety of functions that enable a diverse power of expression, including 19 scene modes, as well as a Creative mode that offers a total of 36 different effects.
The camera also features functions that make it easier to use as a high-power zoom model and ensure increased operability, such as a Snap-back zoom button and Side zoom control, as well as a shooting mode dial that enables immediate switching between frequently used shooting modes. It is also SnapBridge compatible, so high-quality images can be automatically downloaded to a smart device*3 for easy sharing.
*1 Equivalent focal length in 35mm  format.
*2 At the maximum image size. The maximum zoom ratio varies by image size. Dynamic Fine Zoom refers to the area in which the camera can zoom while maintaining resolution from the maximum zoom position, and is the combined ratio of optical zoom from the maximum wide-angle position and digital zoom.
*3 iPhone®, iPad®, iPod touch® and Android™ devices to which the SnapBridge app has been installed can be used. The SnapBridge app can be downloaded free of charge from the App Store® and Google Play™. See Nikon's website for further information.
1. A compact body equipped with a 60x optical zoom lens that covers a wide range of focal lengths from wide-angle to super-telephoto
The COOLPIX B600 employs a high-performance 60x optical zoom NIKKOR lens that covers the wide-angle 24 mm to super-telephoto 1440 mm*1 range of focal lengths. Sharpness is preserved throughout the digital zoom range, which is expandable to 120x*2, or a focal length equivalent to approximately 2880 mm*1, with Digital Fine Zoom realizing sharp and clear rendering even when shooting in super-telephoto mode. The COOLPIX B600 is also equipped with Macro mode, which allows users to enjoy macro photography with shooting as close as 1 cm (0.4 in.) to the lens at the maximum wide-angle position.
*1Equivalent focal length in 35mm  format.
*2At the maximum image size setting.
2. Superior image quality that enables recording of beautiful stills and movies
The combination of the backside illumination CMOS sensor and high-performance image processing engine EXPEED makes the most of the superior resolution of the high-performance NIKKOR lens, and enables recording of photos and movies with excellent image and picture quality, even at high sensitivities. The COOLPIX B600 is also equipped with a Vibration Reduction (VR) mechanism capable of reducing the effects of camera shake to the same degree as would a 3.0-stop* increase in shutter speed with still-image photography, and 4-axis Hybrid VR that effectively reduces blur with movie recording. This allows users to capture sharp photos and movies with noticeably less blur, even at the maximum telephoto position and in dark or dimly lit surroundings.
*Measured in accordance with CIPA Standards; at approx. 350 mm (equivalent focal length in 35mm  format).
3. Diverse power of expression that is easy to achieve
The COOLPIX B600 is equipped with a variety of functions that enable diverse power of expression, including 19 scene modes, with which the user simply selects the most appropriate mode for the scene, while the camera automatically applies the appropriate settings, as well as Creative mode with its 36 effects offering the optimal combinations of exposure, contrast, and color reproduction, making it easy for users to express themselves as intended.
4. Superior operability that pursues user friendliness as a high-power zoom model
