Nikon’s adventure-ready Coolpix AW120 and S32 snap shots on land and at sea

Engadget:

 

Nikon‘s got a pair of baby bumps in store for us this year on the adventure cam front. The Coolpix AW120, which replaces last year’s AW110 and the S32, which serves as 2014’s answer to the S31. Both are rated for underwater use, but the similarities end there. If you’ve got $350 to spare, the AW120 is the camera to focus on. It’s waterproof to 59 feet (18 meters), shockproof to 6.6 feet (2 meters) and freeze-proof to 14 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 10 degrees Celsius). There’s an f/2.8-4.9, 24-120mm (5x) optical zoom lens, a 16-megapixel CMOS sensor, a 6.9 fps continuous shooting mode and 1080/30p and 60i video capture. You also get a 3-inch OLED display, built in GPS and WiFi, letting you upload pics and vids from below as soon as you come up for air.

Meanwhile, the $130 S32 carries a much more affordable price tag, albeit with a less impressive list of specs. It’s waterproof to 33 feet (10 meters), shockproof to five feet (1.5 meters) and freeze-proof to 14 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 10 degrees Celsius). It has an f/3.3-5.9, 30-90mm (3x) optical zoom lens, a 13.2-megapixel CMOS sensor and a 2.7-inch QVGA LCD. The S32 is also capable of capturing 1080/30p video, and it comes along with a variety of scene modes and effects (Nikon’s pushing this as the family/beginner-friendly offering). The AW120, which is also compatible with a new chest harness (for hands-free shots), will ship next month in black, blue, camouflage and orange. The Coolpix S32 will also be available next month, with white and blue finishes.

Nikon Coolpix P600 and P530 superzooms ship this month for $450-plus

Engadget:

If you recently came upon a Coolpix P520 under the Christmas tree, prepare to be mildly disappointed. That superzoom just reached early retirement, with today’s P530 introduction. 2014’s refresh brings along a similar f/3-5.9, 24-1,000mm (42x) optically stabilized zoom lens, a new 16.1-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor, 1080/30p and 60i video capture, a 3-inch fixed LCD and a built-in EVF. It also comes along with full manual control, including a dedicated mode dial.

There’s WiFi connectivity via the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter ($50), but with a $450 price tag, there’s really no excuse for it not to be included (and embedded, for that matter).

You do, however, get built-in WiFi with the Coolpix P600, which is available for just 50 bucks more. It’s also a bit more capable on the imaging front, with an f/3.3-5.6, 24-1,440mm (60x) optical zoom lens (equipped with an ED glass element), lens-shift image stabilization, a 16.1-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor and a 3-inch, 921k-dot tilt-and-swivel RGBW LCD. Like the P530, the P600 supports 1080/30p and 60i video capture and comes along with full manual control, with a dedicated mode dial as well. Both cameras also ship with a few new shooting modes, including Moon Mode, Bird Mode and a multiple-exposure option that merges up to three separate images. Both should be available later this month, with the P600 shipping in black and red for $500 and the P530 available in black for $450.

Nikon appeals to advanced shooters with high-end Coolpix P340 and S9700 compacts

Engadget:

The Coolpix P340, which replaces last year’s P330 and the S9700, which serves as the S9500‘s successor, look awfully similar to 2013’s models — in many ways, those similarities extend internally, too. The P340, which includes the same 1/1.7-inch 12-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor as its predecessor, carries an identical MSRP, but adds integrated WiFi connectivity, enabling instant uploads to sharing services and compatibility with Nikon’s companion apps. It also includes an f/1.8-5.6, 24-120mm (5x) optically stabilized zoom lens, a 3-inch VGA RGBW LCD and 1080/30p and 60i video capture. Like the P330, it also offers full manual controls, with a dedicated mode dial, a function button below the lens and a secondary toggle on the top.

The S9700 also includes integrated WiFi and GPS, but so did the S9500, so there’s not much to speak of there. It has a 16-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor, an upgraded f/3.7-6.4, 25-750mm (30x) optical zoom lens, a 3-inch VGA OLED display and 1080/30p and 60i video. It retains its predecessor’s manual control offerings, including a dedicated mode dial. Like last year’s model, this camera’s strength is in its size. It’s small enough to fit in a jacket pocket, despite its “superzoom” status. It also includes a hybrid VR image stabilization mode that helps keep things steady during video capture. Expect to find a black or red S9700 in stores for $350 later this month, while the (black-only) P340 will ship in March for $380.
