3 Reasons to Put Down Your SLR For Nikon's New Coolpix A

Put down that big and bulky digital SLR — there's a new high-end compact camera in town: the Nikon Coolpix A, which was unveiled earlier this week. The "A" in the company's latest flagship camera stands for the Advanced Performance collection, Nikon's brand-new line of premium Coolpix devices.

How premium, you ask? The Coolpix A has some of the same tech as Nikon's D-SLR cameras. How Nikon was able to pack all that professional-grade goodness into a small and highly pocketable device is beyond us. But one thing is clear: we can't wait to try out the new camera, which will ship later this month in silver and black models for $1,100.

The Nikon Coolpix A is the company's most advanced compact camera yet. But is it enough to desert your heavyweight D-SLR? Click on for all of the Coolpix A's technical specifications and three reasons why you should pick up Nikon's new premium camera.
