Nikon Coolpix L610: AA powered Point-and-Shoot
Since the birth of battery packs, AA-powered gadgets (especially cameras) have been a thing of a past. Although it’s still debatable if it’s easier to find a wall outlet to charge your gadget or to find a store to purchase a new set of fresh batteries, battery packs trumps over the AA batteries.
But for those of you who still prefers AA-powered camera, then Nikon might have something to tickle your fancy.
The Nikon Coolpix L610 is an entry-level Point-and-Shoot which has a pretty decent features for its price. It features 16MP BSI CMOS sensor and ISO range of 125-3200 for decent shots even in dim areas. It is also capable of Full HD video recording at 30fps. The camera is powered by two AA batteries which is rated to take 120 shots on Alkaline, 470 shots on Lithium and 330 on EN-MH2.
This is set to hit the North America market next month and can be had for USD250 which is more or less PhP10â€™500. Weâ€™re not yet sure if Nikon plans to launch this product locally, but it isnâ€™t unlikely.
