Nikon has more than a few premium compact cameras to reveal today. Along with the announcement of its DL series, the company's also introducing three new Coolpix shooters. The most interesting one of the bunch is the A900, a point-and-shoot camera with a 20-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor, 35x optical zoom, 3-inch tilting screen and 4K movie recording at up to 30 fps. All that for only $350. Then there's the B700, which features the same sensor as the A900, but with a 60x optical zoom, a higher resolution LCD and 4K video, too. However, you'll have to pay $500 for this one.

Now, if you're not looking to spend that much, Nikon's selling the B500 for $300. This entry-level model sports a 16-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor, a 40x dynamic zoom and 3-inch screen. That said, the B500 runs on AA batteries, so bear that in mind when you're weighing your options. The good news is they all come with WiFi and NFC, letting you easily transfer images to a smartphone or tablet. The A900, B500 and B700 will hit stores later in the spring.
