coolpix l610Check out the Nikon Coolpix L610 which is not a high end digital camera, but rather, it will occupy the entry-level compact digital camera market and intends to make quite a splash. Basically, the Nikon Coolpix L610 will be able to work just about anywhere in the world without having you to worry about how to juice this puppy up at different countries, simply because it will rely on a couple of AA batteries.

that breaks away from proprietary cells in order to rely on a pair of AAs. World travelers may argue that it’s easier to find a pack of those at any corner shop than a power outlet, and while it may only suit a select few, we’re glad that the AA notion hasn’t been tossed aside completely. Specs-wise, you’re looking at a 16 megapixel BSI (backside illuminated) CMOS sensor, a 1080p movie mode, 3-inch rear LCD, optical VR image stabilization, HDMI socket and a 14x wide-angle zoom lens. It’s designed to sit between the P510 and P7100 in terms of size, with a newfangled design that looks pretty darn attractive at the $249 asking price. For those interested, it’ll be hitting shelves in September donning a red, black or silver motif. [Press Release]
