Nikon's New COOLPIX L610 Compact Camera
August 9, 2012. Today, Nikon Inc. introduced the new COOLPIX L610, an affordable compact digital camera featuring an impressive 14x optical Zoom-NIKKOR ED glass lens and an Easy Auto Mode to help ensure the capture of stunning photos and Full HD (1080p) video. Whether shooting on vacation in the tropical sun or capturing a night game from the stands, the 16-megapixel backside illuminated CMOS sensor helps conquer challenging lighting conditions for picture-perfect memories.
The COOLPIX L610 offers performance and versatility not commonly found among affordable super zoom cameras. Featuring a precise autofocus system, a large 3-inch LCD monitor that provides a bright display with faithful color reproduction, and the convenience of AA-size battery support, the L610 ensures a memorable shooting experience to capture memories with great images and HD video.
“The new COOLPIX L610’s 14x zoom lens and CMOS sensor give consumers the boost they need to capture their favorite moments wherever life takes them,” said Bo Kajiwara, Vice President of Marketing, Planning and Customer Experience, Nikon Inc. “Lightweight and compact, the L610 is the essential camera for any family activity.”
Versatile Performance for Everyday Adventures
Photographers can experience amazing depth and sharpness in their photos thanks to the 14x optical zoom that covers from a wide-angle 25mm to a distant 350mm (35mm format equivalent), making this an ideal camera to cover near, far and everything in between. This high-performance NIKKOR lens has two ED glass elements and lens construction consisting of 11 elements in 10 groups. For photographing close-up subjects, macro shooting is possible from as close as approximately 0.4 in/1 cm (at wide-angle setting). Additionally, optical VR image stabilization minimizes the effects of camera shake to help users create sharp, clear photos and videos in challenging light or while handheld. With a 16.0-megapixel backside illuminated (BSI) CMOS sensor, image details can be beautifully reproduced even in low-light.
Easy to Capture Memories Through Photo and HD Video
To create consistently great images, Nikon’s Easy Auto Mode automatically selects from among six Scene Modes including Portrait, Landscape, Night Portrait, Night landscape, Close-up and Backlighting to fit the most common challenging scenes. By simply framing the subject, the most appropriate Scene Mode is automatically selected according to the shooting situation. This allows the photographer to be ready for any possible occasion, whether it is a flattering portrait of a friend in front of a nighttime city skyline, or a subject that is backlit from the sun. What’s more, the COOLPIX L610 adds the convenience of easily accessible AA battery power, so at home or far away, power will always be within reach even if an outlet is not.
Furthermore, users can enjoy recording impressive movies in Full HD 1080p with stereo sound. The conveniently located Movie-Record button enables one-touch recording at anytime. To make sharing simple, the HDMI mini connector and USB/audio video connector make it quick and easy to upload videos and photos.
Price and Availability
The Nikon COOLPIX L610 will be available in September 2012 for a suggested retail price (SRP) of $249.95* in a variety of colors including Red, Black and Silver. For more information about this COOLPIX camera or other Nikon products, please visit www.nikonusa.com.
My first digital camera that I took on a beach trip to Pulau Redang was actually a Nikon COOLPIX which I borrowed from my cousin. Back those days..3 MP camera was a big deal and of course..A digital camera was an in thing back then * The only way to get pictures taken with girls la (in my case). I had fond memories of the camera. Easy to use. CF card. AA batteries. And here we are, in year 2012. Nikon continues the COOLPIX legacy with the COOLPIX L610. 16 MP and 14 x Superzoom. Walaw..No joke. And it records full HD too. Compared to my old COOLPIX, this has it all. I think it was not mentioned in the press release. But yes, the L610 still uses AA batteries. It maybe cumbersome to some. But hey..We have rechargeable AA batteries. Get two sets la. I am using MahaPowerEX and Sanyo Eneloop. Good stuffs. I got them from here.
No announcement yet.

I'm sure many of you have seen pictures especially Landscapes. The Transition between Sky and Foreground. The Bright and the Dark transition. If you look carefully,you will notice a carefully processed one and the less careful. The Less careful ones are the halos which some may say its ok. To me its not natural to look. That is what I wish to perfect. What I'll be sharing here is to reinforce what I understand…it took me quite awhile to digest. I'm not perfect.Its troubling me for some time. Having A GND Filter or No Filter method? As long as it gets the job done faster choose which workflow you feel comfortable with. In the end is the final outcome of the picture. Below will be in a series and breaks here,through pictures and explanation. I myself can return for reference and comprehend if I forget the steps. I don`t write it down or explain I will forget. There may be shortcuts here and there though.Feel free to sh...09-02-2014, 10:10 PM
This is the technical tests that many photographers have been waiting for. The Sony Alpha 7, the smallest full frame mirror-less digital camera. Many have raved about its capability. See how does it stand to a technical review by Dpreview.
This is what Dpreview has to say :- The Alpha 7 has broken new ground in the full-frame market, in terms of both size and price. Its compact size, broad feature set and very good Raw image quality make it a compelling option for those wanting a large sensor. Unfortunately,...23-01-2014, 10:29 AM

A couple of weeks ago I started a brand new love affair. I want to soar like an eagle and fly with the wind. I've started training to qualify for a licence to fly a Powered Paraglider. You put a motor with a prop on your back, harness yourself to a parachute wing, start the motor, run a short take off run from almost anywhere, and then fly off into the sunset like below : The Paraglider itself is an amazing subject to shoot: Apart from the adrenalin rush associated with when you put your life at risk, the aim is to shoot photos from a perspective not usually available to most people. Here's a combo selfie while flying a powered paraglider over Pulau Indah, and a photo o...17-12-2013, 01:56 AM
Once again this year we are going to trek from Chame to Manang, the homeland of one of our Nepali friends. This trek is part of the famous Annapurna Circuit. If you want to trek on around the Annapurna circuit you will need about 25 days. This part of the Annapurna trek offers the best scenery in Nepal.
Our journey starts with the Holi Festival in Kathmandu on the 17th March 2014. Holi Festival is also known as the Spring Colour Festival. This ancient religious festival is celebrated by Hindu devotees in Nepal and India. Devotees would throw colour powders, shooting water cannons and balloons filled with colour water at each other including photographers, tourist and observers.
