Nikon COOLPIX Cameras


COOLPIX S32: The Family-friendly Warrior

Now everyone can help preserve family memories! There’s a lot going on during the holidays, and children are a part of it all. Hand them a camera to see the holidays through their eyes, and you’ll be amazed at what they discover. The S32’s oversized buttons are perfect for tiny hands, and its tough shell makes it durable enough to be used by every member of the family. Housed in a compact, durable body that’s waterproof (up to 10 metres), shockproof (up to 1.4 metres), and dustproof, this camera takes the worry out of photography. Its 2.7-inch LCD display supports an intuitive graphic user interface (GUI) that allows for simple navigation and several shooting and playback modes. The S32 also records Full HD (1080p) video with a built-in mic for exceptional video and audio quality.


MSRP: $129.95*. Available in white and blue.


COOLPIX P600: The Compact Zoomer

The perfect gift for the nature photographer or traveller on your list, the COOLPIX P600 packs a 60x optical zoom into a sleek and portable design. With a wide-angle 24mm to 1440mm (35mm equivalent) range, the P600 can capture distant subjects like birds, concert performers or the details of an iconic landmark with astonishing clarity. Camera shake is reduced with Lens Shift Vibration Reduction (VR) image stabilization. Capturing holiday memories is easy with new creative Scene shooting modes such as Food and Snow. The COOLPIX P600 also sports full manual controls (P, S, A, M) that appeal to serious photographers. With built-in Wi-Fi, it offers users the ability to easily share amazing photos with family and friends by transferring images to a compatible smartphone or tablet to wirelessly upload them to their social networks. These devices can also be used as a remote control for the P600 – great for self-portraits or group selfies, so everyone’s in the photo!

The built-in all-glass 18.5mm (28mm equivalent) prime lens has an f/2.8 aperture, allowing users to achieve professional-looking images by blurring backgrounds. For those interested in evolving their photography skills, the COOLPIX A offers advanced settings to provide users with the creative control to adapt to any shooting conditions.

Nikon 1 J4: The Creative Type

With fumble-free touchscreen controls, the Nikon 1 J4 makes fine-tuning a focal point or adjusting settings as intuitive as using a smartphone. The J4 is designed for users wanting the compact size and portability of a point-and-shoot camera with the creative control normally reserved for DSLRs. The J4 sports an 18.4-megapixel CX-format CMOS sensor and Nikon’s EXPEED 4A image-processing engine, which together deliver stunning high-quality images and Full HD (1080p) videos. With Nikon’s lightning-fast Advanced Hybrid Autofocus (AF) system, users can shoot up to 20 frames per second (fps) and capture crisp and detailed action shots. Built-in Wi-Fi connectivity allows users to share photos via a seamless connection to a compatible smartphone or tablet for effortless sharing. The J4 has a host of features designed to make capturing memories a breeze, including a wide and bright 3-inch LCD screen, and unique shooting modes like Creative, Advanced Movie, Motion Snapshot and Best Moment Capture. Jazz up this year’s holiday photos with built-in Creative Modes like Toy Camera Effect, Selective Colour and Easy Panorama.

Nikon’s acclaimed in-camera Guide Mode helps to unleash the photographer in everyone by providing step-by-step photo instructions for capturing the best possible images. Ready to tag along on any outing, the D3300’s compact and lightweight body makes it easy to pack for a short day trip or long haul. It hosts a number of advanced features including a super-high resolution 24.2-megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor, Full HD (1080p) video recording with full-time autofocus (AF), and optional Wi-Fi connectivity.

With the D5300, serious hobbyists can capture professional-quality photos and videos and share them easily with the built-in Wi-Fi¹. The 24.2-megapixel sensor delivers astonishing clarity, even in dimly lit restaurants and around campfires, with a wide ISO range of 100-12,800. The 3.2-inch Vari-Angle LCD swivels 180° so you can hold the camera overhead to shoot over a concert crowd, or hold it down low to get face-to-face with your pet. What’s more, the 39-point autofocus system accurately and intelligently tracks subjects, so that active kids or pets chasing a toy are easily captured in brilliant sharpness.

D750: The Affordable Pro

The Nikon D750 is the camera many have been waiting for: an attractively priced HD-SLR packing professional photo and video functionality into a compact carbon and magnesium body. It’s a camera of firsts: the first Nikon HD-SLR to feature built-in Wi-Fi¹ for easy sharing; the first to include an AF system that can lock on to subjects in dark environments with as little as -3 EV illumination; and the first Nikon FX-format HD-SLR with a tilting Vari-Angle LCD to let users shoot overhead or at waist level. The D750 includes the same advanced video functionality as the high-end Nikon D810, which is known in studios and on-set for its professional production pedigree. Videographers can shoot in Full HD 1920x1080 resolution at 60/30/24p, and record footage to dual SD card slots or simultaneously output to a memory card and external recorder. With its innovations and price point, the D750 makes professional-quality photography and videography more accessible than ever before.

D810: The Filmmaker

The cinematographer on your list will love the D810, which is built from the ground up for film production. Its 36.3-megapixel full-frame FX-format sensor captures broadcast-quality video at 60/50/30/25/24p. The D810 includes features important for the workflow of filmmakers, including a built-in stereo microphone, smooth in-camera time-lapses and versatile crop modes. Video can also be relayed simultaneously to internal memory (compressed) and an external recorder via HDMI (uncompressed). For wedding photographers, the D810 includes the new RAW Size S format. At half the resolution and one quarter the size of full RAW files, this new format lets photographers shoot more photos without compromising detail. The D810 is a true workhorse, whether you need to record an event, capture a landscape or create ready-to-broadcast video.


MSRP (body only): $3,599.95*. Available in black.


Df: Iconic Design

For those with an eye for timeless style and an appreciation for classic photography, the finely crafted Df pays homage to the design of Nikon’s illustrious “F” series of 35mm film cameras. It also includes a feature set similar to the D4, including a 16.2-megapixel FX-format sensor that excels in low light. Mechanical dials for ISO and exposure compensation have a satisfying, tactile feel that tunes you in to the experience of photography and evokes classic cameras, in addition to the full manual controls Nikon photographers expect. The Df is available in a beautiful black-and-silver body with leather textures that’s both eye-catching and comfortable to hold. Not only is the Df compatible with all current NIKKOR lenses, but it also accommodates classic Ai and non-Ai NIKKOR glass.
