Nikon Coolpix cameras (P530, AW120, P350) could be announced before February 11

Nikon-announcement
There is a very good chance that the new Nikon Coolpix cameras will be introduced before the press conference scheduled on February 11th. The official announcement could happen as early as tonight. It is common for Nikon to separate their Coolpix (P530, AW120, P340 or P350) and professional announcements (I assume D4s). This is what we can expect:

  • The Nikon Coolpix AW120 will have a 24mm wide-angle lens with some new accessories to compete with GoPro cameras. Apparently the current Coolpix AW-110 was one of the bestselling cameras for Nikon in 2013 and they want to concentrate on this product line.
  • The Coolpix P530 will come with a new technology to extend the camera zoom to 2000mm without losing too much resolution (enhanced digital zoom).
  • Replacements for the P330 is also expected (already selling at half price).

    A Coolpix AW that starts at 24mm (equiv) would be AWESOME. I have been holding out for an AW1 with the two kit lenses, but I’m concerned by how long it’s taking for this to be readily available. Maybe I’ll just give up and stick to the smaller model. Hope they can improve image quality just a wee bit.

    Are these the Coolpix cameras ?

      No, I think those are the models they introduced at CES.

        Ah ok…I can’t tell one Coolpix from another, lol.

    Another month, another batch of ‘pixes.
    It’s not news anymore, is it?

    Any word on a 1 V3?

    When will Nikon realize that there’s an even bigger demand for high-end DSLRs, with specific reference
    to the D400, that’s probably been overdue for
    the last year or so (if not longer). Their ignorance, or just plain stupidity,
    is beyond me. How many times have they (Nikon) released low / entry level DSLRs
    while the market is already flooded with those kinds of point-and-shoot cameras,
    but neglect the worldwide demand for a true flagship DX DSLR (D400). It’s like denying that there never was a problem with the D600 – the problem was there, but Nikon just chose to ignore it. The demand
    for the D400 is there, they just couldn’t give a rats a$$.

      Hi Garth,
      Maybe Photokina in September if a D400 is going to appear this year ?…I don’t have any inside knowledge about the D400, just a “join the dots” educated guess on this one.
      Sorry I can’t be more helpful.

        that’s what i’ve been reading on some of the other sites regarding the D400 / D7200, broxibear. i really do hope nikon comes out with a DX dslr with a bigger buffer. the D7100 that i’ve used at the korean GP in Oct 2013 performed like a DX version of the D4. only drawback was the disappointing buffer of the D7100. the 51 point AF tracking system, the 1.3x crop and the 24mb pixels performed and delivered outstanding results / images, just that bloody buffer that lead to a few missed shots.

      put a man in a desert like ambient, then give him a few drops of water, he will drink a lot less water (cost to the water supplier) than if you give him water every day
      and you will see a neverseenbefore queue
      thats how you build dependency-myth-hunger (on a certain product) + the man in the desert will thank you as his God, the man drinking daily will consider you as a bad owner and turn his back)

      • Garth Muller

        right now, i am without a drop of water. (sold my d7100) my thirst can only be quenched by a d400 / d7200. in the meantime, i’ll continue to recycle my urine.

        • Morris

          ;)

          • Garth Muller

            just kidding about the urine. by the time the d400 / d7200 comes out, i’ll have to fork out a few thousand dollars for a pair of kidneys and wait another year to save up for the d400 / d7200.

            i agree with your statement, though. nikon is making its customers wait and salivate. they (customers) have to be satisfied with sub-par DX DSLRs while nikon cashes in on their customers’ dissatisfaction, knowing very well that even though those DSLRs (with key performance features missing from them) where not actually in demand, nikon went ahead in selling them nonetheless.
