Sized for performance
The size of a Nikon image sensorFX, DX, CX or smalleris determined by Nikon engineers to balance the needs of the Nikkor optics being used and the desired speed, size and performance of the camera.
Lifelike detail retention
A recent innovation by Nikon engineers allows for ultra-high resolution image sensors that dont have an optical low-pass filter. The result is some of the most vibrant, lifelike images imaginable.
Some Coolpix cameras, which require a slightly smaller sensor design for the compact camera size, achieve greater low-light performance due to a backside illumination image sensor that allows great amounts of light to be captured.
A legacy of all-weather camera design
Inspired by legendary explorer and conservationist Jaques Cousteau, the immensely popular Nikonos series of underwater cameras captured some of the most extraordinary images of our time and set the standard for underwater imaging. That legacy continues in the Coolpix and Nikon 1 AW (all-weather) series of cameras.
Shed light on new shooting opportunities
With three available underwater housings and a fully waterproof AW camera and lenses, the Nikon 1 series is carrying the torch of the Nikonos tradition of underwater imaging. The SB-N10 Underwater Speedlight works with any Nikon 1 underwater solution and provides powerful illumination capabilities for stunning views of the deep.
Waterproof, shockproof and freezeproof
Nikons series of Coolpix and Nikon 1 AW (all-weather) cameras bring the image quality that has made Nikon famous to extreme adventures. Waterproof to impressive depths, shockproof against drops and bangs and even capable of working in frigid temperatures, these cameras are helping extreme athletes and adventurers bring home amazing views.
