Samy’s News For February
By Louis Feldman

Nikon announced several new consumer point & shoot cameras this week and I think a couple will be of interest to Sports Shooter readers.

Nikon CoolPix P300
The CoolPix P300 features a super-fast 1.8 (at 24mm) zoom lens, true 1080 HD video capture, optical stabilization, an ISO range of 100 – 3200 and a 12-megapixel cmos sensor --- all in a body that will fit in a shirt pocket!

The other camera of note is the CoolPix P500. Feature highlights include a huge 36x zoom range (22.5mm – 810mm, full 1080p HD video, a cool adjustable variable angle LCD viewfinder, optical stabilization and a 12-megapixel cmos sensor.

The P300 and P500 will be available next month.

Nikon's new D7000 keeps flying off of our shelves and for good reason! Combining all of the great features of Nikon's pro camera bodies --- lightning quick auto-focus, spectacular quality in low-light/high ISO situations, 16-megapixel CMOS --- with full HD video capabilities in a compact body the D7000 is a great multimedia powerhouse. Give a Samy's Industrial Sales representative a call about current inventory and pricing --- at the moment we have the D7000 with the 18-105mm DX VR lens IN STOCK!

Give Samy’s Camera a call for pricing info for Sports Shooter readers.
