London, United Kingdom, 17th January 2019: Nikon introduces two new COOLPIX super-zooms packed with powerful features and boasting NIKKOR optics for stunning images. From distant views to city streets, these lightweight, easy-to-use compact cameras deliver sharp wide-angle to super-telephoto images—even in low light.

The COOLPIX A1000 boasts a 35x optical zoom, a new built-in electronic viewfinder, and RAW image recording. A superb travel companion, this camera lets users move from atmospheric wide-angle to detailed super-telephoto shots with ease. It shoots 4K movies, and features a tilting touchscreen monitor that makes it easy to compose shots from intriguing angles.

Yoshihiro Katakami, Product Manager at Nikon UK, comments: “Both of these cameras are fantastic options for users who want to explore their creative side. The wide-angle to super-telephoto zoom range frees users to shoot almost any subject. Nikon’s 16 MP back-side illuminated CMOS sensor and Vibration Reduction help deliver superb results in low light. And SnapBridge makes it easy to share the best shots, or use a smart device to shoot remotely.” 1
