Small and lightweight, but with a 16.2-million-pixel, APS-C sensor and 18.5mm lens, the Nikon Coolpix A could be an ideal second camera for many enthusiasts. Richard Sibley puts it to the test
Nikon Coolpix A review – Dynamic range
I was impressed with the dynamic range of the Coolpix A. Shadows had plenty of detail that could be recovered. At the lowest sensitivities, even an adjustment of up to +3EV revealed very little noise in shadow areas. Similarly, the evaluative-metered exposure left enough detail in the highlights that could be recovered in raw files that was lost in JPEG images. The dynamic range certainly matches what we would expect from a DSLR.
