CoolPix A

In the face of dwindling sales, compact cameras are experiencing some serious feature bumps to try to pull in the growing legion of photography enthusiasts. One of the more popular gimmick today is the cramming of large sensors into compact bodies with the promise of better quality photos.

Nikon is the latest entrant into this “small body, big sensor” race with its new CoolPix A, and its 16.2-megapixel “DX” sensor is the as big as most of the company’s DSLR cameras. Like other large sensor compacts, the CoolPix A has a fixed focal length and wide aperture, which should mean sharper and brighter photos.
