The DX-format CMOS sensor is as large those used in DSLRs.

The COOLPIX A comes with a fixed 18.5mm (equivalent to 28mm in 35mm format), f/2.8 fixed focal focal length NIKKOR lens.

The camera’s adoption of a seven-blade iris diaphragm allows users to enjoy beautiful and natural blur characteristics.

Various types of aberrations are effectively reduced, demonstrating superior rendering performance throughout the entire frame at all aperture settings.

Moreover, the practical wide-angle lens is designed with optics that maximise its performance while making the most of the compact digital camera’s portability, covering a wide variety of shooting scenes.

Nikon COOLPIX A captures 14-bit compressed NEF (RAW) images, comes with a manual focus ring, and is able to record 1,920 × 1,080/30p full-HD movies.

The camera has a metallic look and feel of its design, with an extremely durable magnesium alloy top cover.

The leather accent on the grip and dials cut from metal lends an elegant finish to the design.
