Nikon has revealed its smallest-ever compact camera. In a bid to ensure that a dedicated camera can compete for space in your bag or pocket alongside your smartphone, the COOLPIX S01 has been given a body smaller than a credit card (though obviously thicker) while retaining the specifications of a typical, if somewhat mediocre, compact digital camera.

When you picture an Android camera, chances are you're thinking about the one in your smartphone. Nikon is hoping to change that with the release of the COOLPIX S800c, a compact digital camera which is powered by the Android Operating System. When you're not busy taking photographs, the S800c can be used to check Facebook, send emails, run apps and allow you to access the internet via WiFi. Read More
The near-ubiquitousness of camera-equipped smartphones has seen many ditch their dedicated cameras in favor of the convenience of snapping shots on their phone. But although the quality of the camera in the iPhone has improved over the various iterations of that device, there are still many things a dedicated camera is better at. But you don't have to lug around a fancy DSLR to up your photography game … here are 10 compact cameras that offer something the iPhone can't. Read More
Nikon has announced a new entry-level addition to its 1 range of interchangeable lens, mirrorless compact cameras. The J2 represents a rather modest upgrade to the specs on last year's J1 model, and is joined by a new 2.5x zoom lens and an underwater case. Read More
Compact snappers looking to zoom in on distant subjects have been given a wallet-friendly helping hand from Nikon with the launch of its new COOLPIX L610 superzoom digital camera. It features a 14x zoom lens that runs from the wide-angle 25-mm right up to the 350-mm telephoto end (35-mm film equivalent), a low-light-friendly 16 megapixel sensor and is capable of full HD movie recording with one touch activation.

It's getting rarer these days to find the kind of specialist shops that have so much stock from years gone by that they're more like a mini-museum than a retail outlet. Grays of Westminster is just such an emporium. Exclusively dealing in products spanning the whole history of the Nikon Corporation, the award-winning central London curiosity shop managed to generate a huge online buzz this week by announcing the sale of an exceptionally rare monster of a wide-angle Nikkor lens for an equally gargantuan price of £100,000 (US$162,312).

A couple of years ago, camera experts confidently predicted the megapixel race had come to an end and that no one needed more than 16 megapixels in a DSLR. Well, 2012 is proving that Nikon didn't get that memo, because after launching the 36.3-megapixel D800, it's now announced a 24.2-megapixel entry-level DSLR. The Nikon D3200 HD-SLR has a DX-format CMOS sensor, shoots Full HD (1080p) and is being released with an optional WiFi unit supporting image upload and remote viewing/shutter release. Read More
Has it really been over three years since Nikon released the 12-megapixel D700 digital camera? At long last, its replacement - which effectively triples the pixel count of its predecessor - is due to arrive next month. The new D800 is about half the price of the D4 announced in early January, with which it shares a number of features, plus it's smaller and lighter, and features a new 36.3 megapixel FX-format (35.9 x 24mm) CMOS sensor. It's also the first digital camera to achieve USB 3.0 certification. Read More
I can't help but wonder whether Nikon has been waiting for temperatures in my part of the northern hemisphere to dip below zero before announcing additions to its appropriately-named COOLPIX range of compact digital cameras. Probably not, but all nine models are released this month and include a new line aimed at today's family, some with built-in GPS, and a powerful new ultra-zoom. Read More
Who says all the good stuff has to be announced at CES? It's just a few days before the show, and Nikon has taken the wraps off its newest flagship DSLR - the Nikon D4. The 16-megapixel camera has been optimized for “speed and precision,” with a number of new features to make the camera both faster and to improve its overall image quality over its predecessor. The D4 has an ISO range from 100 to 204,800, allowing it to capture crisp photos in exceptionally low-light situations, a faster shutter speed that allows it to capture photos at 10 frames-per-second, and the ability to capture 1080p high definition video.
