Nikon Coolpix 990

 

As one of the first 3.4-megapixel cameras on the market, the Nikon Coolpix 990 raised the bar for other cameras. Despite its high cost, the Coolpix doesn't include an AC adapter, batteries, or a carrying case, so buyers can expect to add $50 to $100 to...

The Nikon Coolpix 990 is the first of the new wave of 3.34-megapixel resolution digital cameras. It retains the best features of the Coolpix 950 like the razor sharp Nikkor 3x zoom lens, the closest macro capability of any digicam, the highly durable...

The 990's 3.34 megapixel CCD delivers a non-interpolated image resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels with an uncompressed TIFF image file of just under 10MB in size. Recording modes include still image capture at up to 2 frames per second in full...

Great things sometimes come in small packages. The Coolpix 990 proves why it was named Time's product of the year (2001).

At first glance, it's easy to mistake the new Nikon Coolpix 990 (AU$2149) for the existing Nikon model, the Coolpix 950.

Nikon Coolpix 990

 

You won't find any animated icons, chatty status panels or preset scene modes in the $2953 Nikon Coolpix 990. This matte-black, 3.3-megapixel, 373g camera is all business. With quiet, smooth operation and a wide array of tools here for setting exposure...

The Coolpix 990 has an exclusive Multi-Area autofocus mode for quick composition without interruption. It searches the 5 zones for closest subject or sharpest subject. It is a direct descendant of Nikon pro film and D1 digital SLR cameras
