Nikon Coolpix A Gets a Big Price Drop

Nikon Coolpix A

Nikon’s compact DX-format camera, the Coolpix A, finally got a much needed price drop from north of $1000 down to $699.

The Coolpix A was an impressive little camera from the start – with its 18.5mm f/2.8 lens (28mm equivalent) and a 16.2MP APS-C sensor. The price was just eye-rolling high at $1100. At $699, I can definitely see this camera getting a lot more action. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
