Nikon just added a new more compact travel zoom to their L-series in the form of the Nikon Coolpix L610. This sleek-looking compact is built around a high-resolution 16 megapixels CMOS sensor paired with a stabilized 14X ultra-wide angle optical zoom lens, equivalent to 25-350mm in 35mm terms. It is capable of shooting full 1080p HD video and runs on readily available AA batteries.
The Nikon Coolpix L610 is scheduled to be available next month for $249 USD or $279 CDN. It can already be pre-ordered here.
