From the Manufacturer:
Meet the new flagship of the COOLPIX Advanced Performance collection, the COOLPIX A, a one-of-a-kind Nikon camera that produces high-resolution photos and Full HD 1080p videos in a class of their own. The COOLPIX A is exceptional in every aspect. For exceptional image quality, it employs a Nikon DX-format CMOS sensor, the same type used in our outstanding DX-format D-SLR cameras, but in a compact body. For exceptional clarity and low-light performance, it features one of the most impressive NIKKOR lenses we've ever put on a COOLPIX camera. For exceptional versatility, it's compatible with many Nikon accesories like a Wi-Fi adapter that lets you instantly share your photos. Simply put, the COOLPIX A produces the kind of photos and videos that will leave your dazzled friends and family asking, "What kind of camera do you have?"
Nikon DX-format CMOS sensor for the ultimate COOLPIX image quality and low-light performance: At the heart of the COOLPIX A is a high-performance Nikon DX-format CMOS image sensor, the same size sensor used in Nikon DX-format D-SLRs! Achieve the ultimate COOLPIX image quality—breathtaking crystal-clear photos and Full HD videos with vibrant colors and rich textures—and shoot without a flash in some of the most poorly lit situations.
A photography system that can grow with you: The COOLPIX A includes a full-size accessory shoe that's compatible with many exciting Nikon accessories. Take control of light with an external flash. Fire the camera remotely with a wireless remote control, or geotag your shots with a GPS module. You can really build a creative system around the COOLPIX A.
Share to your compatible smartphone or tablet: Compatible with the WU-1a wireless mobile adapter for anytime, anywhere sharing. Connect the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter and wirelessly transfer photos to your compatible smartphone, tablet or any Wi-Fi enabled device. Use your compatible smartphone or tablet to instantly upload your shots to the web or email them to a friend. Or, remotely control the COOLPIX A—see what the camera sees from your smartphone or tablet and fire off shots!
Record superior videos-1080p Full HD videos with stereo sound for dazzling movies: If you want a compact camera that shoots stunning Full HD videos, the COOLPIX—delivers. 1080p Full HD means exceptional video quality. Record the action, then use an optional HDMI cable to connect to an HDTV and watch your videos come alive. A built-in mic records high-quality audio in stereo. Your videos will look and sound phenomenal
Take control of your vision-Full manual control and RAW (NEF) capability for additional flexibility: The COOLPIX A takes exceptional images on its own, but when you want to take control, you can. Select from Programmed, Shutter Priority, Aperture Priority or Manual mode and bring your vision to life. For those who want to record the purest, unmodified versions of their photos, the COOLPIX A can record in RAW (NEF) mode.
Superior low-light performance: The COOLPIX A's highly sensitive CMOS image sensor performs so well in low-light situations that in most cases, using the flash is optional. Capture the moment without interrupting it.
Sharp subjects and softly blurred backgrounds: The COOLPIX A features a truly superb lens, a fixed (prime) 28mm f/2.8 NIKKOR glass lens. Create tack-sharp wide-angle images with beautifully blurred backgrounds, and enjoy enhanced low-light performance compared to a typical zoom lens.
