Nikon launches DL line of premium compact cameras

Fresh off its exciting camera announcements from CES 2016, Nikon is now back with more. Today, the company is introducing a new line of premium point-and-shoots, called DL. This series consists of three different cameras -- the DL24-85, DL18-50 and DL24-500 -- each named after the type of fixed lens that's on them. And that, for the most part, is the difference between the trio. They all feature a 20.8-megapixel (1-inch, CX-format) BSI CMOS sensor, coupled with an Expeed 6A image processor, 20 fps continuous shooting, 4K video at up to 30 fps and slow-motion movies at 120 fps (1080p) and 240 fps (720p).

If you want a 24-85mm camera, then you'd obviously go for the DL24-85; the same goes for the 18-50 version, but there you'll find a wider angle zoom lens. The DL24-50, on the other hand, is a super zoom shooter with a 2.3-million-dot electronic viewfinder and a 3.5mm microphone jack, both features missing from the other aforementioned DL models. When the DL24-85 and DL18-50 hit shelves in April, they will be priced at $645 and $800, respectively. Meanwhile, the DL24-500 will be $1,000 when it begins shipping in March.
