One from each camera category (point & shoot, mirrorless & DSLR) will be featured; Today, we'll start with the Nikon P300 ...
A 2011 TIPA award winner for "Best Compact Digital Camera" and rated "Best Compact Point & Shoot Camera" by a leading consumer publication this fall , you can shed new light on your creativity with the fastest lens in a Nikon COOLPIX camera with its new, wide angle, f/1.8 maximum aperture Zoom-NIKKOR glass lens. The 12 Megapixel, 4.2 X Zoom COOLPIX P300 brings the craftsmanship of a precision instrument and the power of a full-size D-SLR together in a minimalist form. At the heart of its incredible performance is that specially crafted f/1.8 NIKKOR lens that delivers razor-sharp images and a D-SLR quality, back-illuminated CMOS sensor that provides superb image quality, high speed operation and exceptional low-light results. Whether you're shooting portraits, panoramas, weddings, real estate, products, publicity stills or any other challenging compositions, the COOLPIX P300 will showcase your photographic skills and extend your creativity. Add to that the ability to shoot 1080I High Definition Video and you have one small & very impressive camera! Here's a link to "NatGeo Adventure 's Top Gear Picks of 2011" touting this camera: http://tinyurl.com/77tqqc5
