Remembering the new cameras
Nikon has released both the Coolpix P330 and Coolpix A cameras on March 5. The latter is far more interesting, since it is packing an APS-C image sensor found in older DX-format DSLR shooters. The Coolpix P330 is available at Amazon for $359, while the Coolpix A costs $1,096.95.
Canon has introduced the Rebel T5i / 700D on March 21, as a replacement for the EOS 650D / Rebel T4i. It is packing an 18MP image sensor and a 3-inch touchscreen. It is available for purchase at Amazon for $749.
The Sony NEX-3n has been revealed on February 20 with a 16.1-megapixel APS-C image sensor, as the world’s lightest mirrorless camera. The device can be purchased at Amazon for $448.
Last but not least, the Pentax MX-1 has been announced at the beginning of the year with a 12-megapixel image sensor. It is also available at Amazon for a price of $414.06.
