announced two new additions to their Coolpix digital camera product line today — the Coolpix 995 and the Coolpix 775.
The $900 Coolpix 995 is a 3.34-megapixel digital camera with 4x optical zoom and 4x digital zoom. The camera’s lens offers 38-152mm coverage, and utilizes two aspherical elements to maintain a compact lens design. The Coolpix 995 also sports the same swivel-style design as its 990 and 950 brethren, and it’ll work with existing Coolpix accessories and lens attachments. A multimode pop-up flash is also integrated into the camera.
The Coolpix 995 can capture up to three pictures a second with an improved shutter speed of 1/2000th of a second, and a maximum ISO of 800. The camera also features a quick review function and four saturation modes, to help the user control color saturation based on the targeted output for the photos.
The Coolpix 995 utilizes CompactFlash Type I and Type II media storage cards, and also utilizes USB to enable users to download pictures to a computer.
The Coolpix 995 is expected to hit stores this June for around $900. The price includes a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, charger, 16MB CompactFlash card, and USB cable.
Also announced today is the Coolpix 775, a 2.14-megapixel point-and-shoot digital camera. The Coolpix 775 sports a 3x optical zoom lens and weighs less than seven ounces. The diminutive digital camera measures 3.4 x 2.6 x 1.7 inches.
Designed for simplicity, the Coolpix 775 sports a Mode Dial that enables users to define the “scene mode” they’d like the camera to work in. The settings determine how the camera will focus, set exposure and balance color. Different scene modes include party/indoor, backlight, portrait, night portrait, landscape, beach/snow and sunset.
Included with the Coolpix 775 is a USB cable, 8MB Type I CompactFlash card, rechargeable lithium-ion battery and charger. Expected to hit stores this July, the Coolpix 775 will carry a suggested retail price of around $450.
