p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Official Coolpix A Image Thread


This little camera has been around for two years now, but never seemed to get a lot of traction with the equally good Ricoh GR priced a few hundred dollars less. But now that the Coolpix A is selling at "blow em out" prices, there seems to be a lot of interest and a good number of shooters using it suddenly. Whether there will be a new updated Coolpix A (or maybe B?) or whether Nikon is killing the camera altogether, we're just guessing about at this point. Regardless, hopefully there are enough "A" shooters around here now to support a dedicated image thread.

As one of the few early adopters of this camera (I've had one since Day 1), I have a couple of years worth of images to pick from so I'm going to go ahead and start a thread with a bunch of my own images. I look forward to seeing what everyone else does with this great little camera. I've used it for a lot of street shooting, but plenty of landscapes and everything else as well.

Thanks for starting this Ray!
The Positano shots bring back fond memories.

I hope to contribute soon but have only had my A for a couple of days.

Wonderful shots. I especially like the first one, and the B&W street shots.

Starting an official image thread with such great examples may make others reluctant to share their own attempts. I hope not, since I'm wanting this camera more and more and want to see a lot of pics here.

First, thanks for the kind words, but I really hope I'm not in any way discouraging anyone from contributing lots of their own work to the thread. I've had two years to shoot with this camera, including significant time spent on the Amalfi Coast and in New York City, two of the most photo-friendly places I've ever been. Not to mention a LOT of time in my usual haunts in the Philadelphia region, which has plenty going on too. A lot of people on these forums will create a lot of photography that's at least as good and better than this in two years of shooting. And you folks didn't get to see all of my out-takes from that time, which are far more numerous than the keepers!

I'm looking forward to seeing what other folks do with this great little camera, so let's get 'em started...

Nice pictures, but you're really making it hard for me not to get a refurb Coolpix A, which I don't need!

If any of this was about "NEED", except for the few pros around here, we'd all be shooting with our cell phones. I try not to let "need" into buying decisions. It's all about "want" and "can reasonably afford" or "canNOT reasonably afford"...

I own a Coolpix A. I have not had the success with it that I had with a Canon S110. The idea that I have yo plug the camera into the computer to down load images is so 90's! I am not sold on the results comparing the two cameras. It certainly can take more of a beating then the Canon unit. I liked the size and it was always in my pocket for that moment I didn't want to miss. I had many more real keepers with the S110.

Just my opinion as I am not trying to start a war.

I just use a card reader (or the SD card slot on the laptop) or download the images direct to my phone or tablet over wi-fi with the Nikon WMU app.

Yeah, I don't get that either. I've never down loaded images any differently with the Coolpix A than with any other digital camera I've had. I've always used a card reader - they're built into my two Macs.

No problem if you don't bond with a particular camera, but I don't understand that specific complaint...

BTW, nice shooting pja7 - love that last shot with the boat...

Ray & pja7:

I have the latest iMac 27" with current operating system.

I tried - once again - by inserting the SD card into the computer. The card showed up on the desk top - once.
I have not been able to repeat that feat again.

I would appreciate any direction you can give me.
