Nikon Launches D600 DLSR and New COOLPIX Compact Cameras

Earlier today, Nikon launched a wide array of photographic devices including the smallest and lightest full-frame DSLR, the D600, the Android-based COOLPIX S800c camera, the tiny COOLPIX S01 compact camera, and many more. During this launch in Kuala Lumpur, Masanobu Tsunoda, Managing Director of Nikon (Malaysia) and Nikon Singapore was present to deliver the opening speech.

Hailed as the smallest and lightest FX-format camera yet, the D600 offers users a 24.3MP CMOS sensor and the EXPEED 3 processor matching high-end professional Nikon DSLRs like the D4, D800, and D800E. The D600 also comes packed with an OVF that offers approximately 100% frame coverage and is even compatible with the Nikkor DX lenses or greater convenience with both still image shooting and movie recording.

In addition to this, Nikon also launched a tiny new compact camera called the COOLPIX S01, which weighs a mere 96g and has a body size that is smaller than your average business card. Although the camera is tiny, it still offers an intuitive user interface for simple yet practical functionality.

The Nikon COOLPIX S800c, on the other hand, is a unique camera which runs on Google’s Android platform and comes with built-in Wi-Fi compatibility, making it a great fit for social media junkies. The 16MP back-illuminated CMOS image sensor combined with a 10x optical zoom NIKKOR lens means sharp, blur-free photos that trump those on a smartphone.

Designed as a successor to the P7100, the P7700 is equipped with a large 1/1.7-inch back-illuminated CMOS image sensor and a high-speed 7.1X optical zoom NIKKOR lens with an effective 12.2-million pixel count. In addition to this, the P7700 is built with Lens-shift vibration reduction (VR) Image stabilization, so even at the highest telephoto range the image will still maintain its sharpness.
