Mixing a slim form factor with capable imaging qualities, the COOLPIX A10 Digital Camera from Nikon is a pocketable point-and-shoot featuring a 16.1MP 1/2.3" CCD image sensor. This sensor's design enables shooting high-resolution still photos as well as HD 720p videos, and also affords a sensitivity range of ISO 80-1600 for working in a range of lighting conditions. A NIKKOR 5x optical zoom covers a 26-130mm equivalent focal length range, and is benefitted by Electronic VR to minimise the appearance of camera shake. Additionally, the camera also incorporates a 2.7" 230k-dot LCD monitor for composing and reviewing imagery, and the Smart Portrait System and Scene Auto Selector modes automatically optimise camera settings for portraits or based on recognised shooting scenarios.
16.1MP CCD Sensor
Featuring a 16.1MP 1/2.3" CCD sensor, the A10 is capable of recording high-resolution still imagery as well as HD 720p video. Additionally, the sensor provides a sensitivity range from ISO 80-1600 for working in low-light conditions.
NIKKOR 5x Optical Zoom Lens
Spanning a wide-angle to short-telephoto reach, the NIKKOR 5x optical zoom lens covers a 26-130mm equivalent focal length range to benefit working in a wide variety of shooting conditions. This reach can be extended even further with 4x digital zoom for working with distant subjects. Benefiting this reach is Electronic VR, which minimises the appearance of camera shake to help realise sharp imagery when shooting stills or video.
