Cameras, Tech Digest news


Nikon have revealed two new superzoom cameras, the P510 and Coolpix L810, for budding wildlife photographers and/or peeping Toms, which will replace Nikon’s P500 and L120 models.

Kicking off with the £400 P150, it features a giant 42x optical NIKKOR zoom lens, which hits an impressive 1,000mm super-telephone focal length, and down to a 24mm wide-angle. Taking 16MP stills from its illuminated CMOS sensor, it also shoots 1080p video and houses a tiltable 921K-dot LCD preview screen.

GPS tagging, and Auto HDR mode, Easy Panorama and 3D shooting mode also feature.

Next, a quick look at the Coolpix L810. It again is a 16MP snapper, but with a 26x wide angle optical zoom, with a range of 22.5 to 585mm. 720p video recording and 3D modes also feature.

Both cameras are due out on March 22nd.
