Doug Menuez on the COOLPIX A
The COOLPIX A, to my pleasant surprise, is perfect for street photography, where discretion is critical. It's small, quick and lightweight, yet delivers big, portfolio-quality image files. I wanted to work the moment I touched it. With its fixed 28 mm, it was clear that Nikon was speaking to those who love the discipline and simplicity of prime lenses, but also appreciate modern enhancements. David Douglas Duncan once said, "First get close, then get closer." This camera has that spirit, and I am now relishing the results. The files are mind-blowing, with sharpness that rivals my D4. Yet it fits in my pocket! This camera will go wherever I go.
