Nikon Coolpix A

Nikon loyalists looking for a high-end compact no longer need to run to the arms of Sony, Fuji, or — gasp! — Canon. The Nikon Coolpix A ($1,100) fills this gap in the lineup by pairing a 16.2 megapixel DX-format sensor with an all-glass 18.5mm f/2.8 prime lens that allows for a body that's easily stuffed into a jacket pocket. Other features include 4 fps burst shooting, full manual exposure controls, a manual focus ring, the ability to shoot RAW files, 1080p video recording, a 3-inch LCD monitor, and a Macro mode that allows for snapping shots from just four inches away. Coming later this month.
