Yesterday we reported that a leaked photo showed what looked like the upcoming Nikon DL compact camera. Turns out we didn’t have to wait too long because Nikon has since officially announced the cameras, and sure enough as per the rumors, there are three different models that photographers can choose from.
The models launched are the DL24-85, the DL18-50, and the DL24-500. The models are named after the lenses that are attached to them, so it’s pretty easy to identify what’s what, but just in case, the DL24-85 sports a 24-85mm lens, the DL18-50 has an 18-50mm lens, and the DL24-500 has a 24-500mm lens.
All three cameras sport 1-inch 20.8MP sensors, making them one of the first few Nikon compact cameras to sport the technology, something that Sony and Canon have already been implementing in their products for the past couple of years. They will be powered by an Expeed 6A image processor, support 4K video recording of up to 30fps, and 20fps shooting.
In terms of pricing, the DL24-85 is priced at $645 while the DL18-50 will go for $800 and are expected to be available in April. The DL24-500 will be pricier at $1,000 and will begin shipping out to customers in March.
