Cameras for every photographer this holiday season from Nikon Canada

Easy sharing, touchscreens and powerful optics for today's photographers

MISSISSAUGA, ON, Oct. 7, 2015 /CNW/ - Nikon Canada's 2015 lineup features cameras for every photographer this holiday season – from children who love to explore, to visionaries who capture soaring birds or even the face of the moon.  

"Nikon cameras capture memories with detail and fidelity that can't be beat, and our diverse range makes photography accessible to everyone, from children to photography enthusiasts and professionals," said Amanda Mohammed, Manager, Communications & Nikon Professional Services, Nikon Canada. "A child that's always reaching for your HD-SLR can take the COOLPIX S33 tobogganing because it's built to withstand water and freezing temperatures. Someone who needs a lightweight camera for travelling but still wants to capture enough detail for large prints will love the Nikon 1 J5, which uses our 1 NIKKOR series of interchangeable lenses. The photography enthusiast in the family might already be dropping hints about the D7200, our updated prosumer camera that includes many video features found in our full-frame HD-SLRs, the D810 and D750. The D7200 is also Nikon's first HD-SLR to include both built-in Wi-Fi and Near Field Communication (NFC) to make sharing high-quality photos easier than ever."

Nikon 1 J5: The portable camera that grows with you
For budding photographers who need a lightweight but powerful camera to hone their craft, the retro-styled Nikon 1 J5 offers HD-SLR-like image quality and manual functions in a design that's about the size of a deck of cards. The versatility of interchangeable lenses means that as your photography skills grow, the Nikon 1 J5 grows with you. It's also the first Nikon camera with 4K video recording, and boasts the world's shortest release time to practically eliminate shutter delay. Composing perfect selfies with family during holidays is easy with the 180° tilting touchscreen, and sharing them is as simple as connecting to a compatible iOS or Android device with the camera's built-in Wi-Fi and Near Field Communication (NFC). MSRP: $599.95*. Available in black and silver.

About the NIKKOR Brand
With a comprehensive assortment of FX and DX-format lenses and focal lengths, from the ultra-wide 10-24mm to the super telephoto 800mm VR, Nikon photographers have come to rely upon the NIKKOR core technologies that contribute to their optical superiority. NIKKOR is the brand name for Nikon's photographic lenses, which are precision crafted to the most exacting standards in Nikon's own glassworks. In 1933, Nikon marketed its first camera lens under the NIKKOR brand name, the "Aero-NIKKOR" for aerial photography applications. Since then, NIKKOR has been used as a brand name for Nikon's lenses that symbolizes durability, high image quality and optical excellence.
