Nikon unveils new cameras at CES 2013

By
Nikon has announced new camera hardware at CES 2013, expanding its Nikon 1 series of snappers as well as its Coolpix line.

A pair of mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras, the Nikon 1 J3 and the Nikon 1 S1, headlined the photography giant's presentation at the Las Vegas trade show.

The Nikon 1 J3 measures in at just 101mm x 60.5mm x 28.8mm and packs a powerful image processor capable of capturing 60fps, limited to 20 frames in a single burst. An improved hybrid autofocus system offers a speedier shooting performance than its predecessor, the J2.

Available in black, white, beige, red and silver, the camera supports wireless media transfer via the Wireless Mobile Adapter accessory, which must be purchased separately.

Nikon's 1 S1, featuring a 10.1-megapixel image sensor and an ISO range of between 100 and 6,400, can handle up to 60fps, limited to 15 frames per shot.

The 1 S1 comes with lower specs and a simpler user interface than the 1 J3, and is geared towards relative novices looking to make the transition from a compact camera to an interchangeable lens shooter.

Nikon also expanded its Coolpix line of compact cameras at CES with the unveiling of the WiFi-enabled Coolpix S6500 and the stylish S2700.

The former comes with a 16-megapixel CMOS sensor, a wide-angle NIKKOR 12x optical zoom lens covering a 35mm equivalent focal range of 25-300mm, and WiFi connectivity for media transfer.

Nikon's S2700 comes with a lightweight 20.7mm body and 6x optical zoom, as well as features such as motion blur reduction and in-camera retouching, but is not WiFi-ready.

The camera giant also showcased two new camera lenses at the trade show - an ultra wide-angle zoom lens called the 1 NIKKOR VR 6.7-13mm f/3.5-5.6 and a powerful 10x zoom lens dubbed the 1 NIKKOR VR 10-100mm f/4.0-5.6.
