Suggestions For The 2016 IT Nerd Gift Guide From Nikon

The IT Nerd Gift Guide for 2016 continues to grow. Today Nikon offers up some suggestions for you:

KeyMission 360: Nikon’s first 360° camera

Two wide-angle lenses work together to create seamless 360° video in 4K resolution. It’s a new way to tell stories that will change how you capture and remember weddings, your child’s first bike ride and Christmas morning. The KeyMission 360 is ready for adventure with a variety of accessories and mounting options and a rugged design that’s waterproof (98 ft. / 30m), shockproof (6.6 ft. / 2m) and freezeproof (14°F / -10°C) with no additional housing. The videos can be transferred to a smartphone or tablet with Bluetooth and shared easily. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price: $649.95.

KeyMission 170: Share your point of view

A super-wide 170° lens brings everyday adventures to life with a first-person perspective in stunning 4K. The wide f/2.8 aperture performs better in low light than many other action cameras. The KeyMission 170 is also light enough to bring everywhere – a morning jog, walking the dog through a ravine, or skating on an outdoor rink. MSRP: $499.95.

KeyMission 80: A wearable for spontaneous moments

The small KeyMission 80 turns on instantly when unclipped from its holder and can be set to capture video or stills with time-lapse recording – perfect for a hands-free hike through the woods. The primary 12-megapixel lens is accompanied by a secondary 5-megapixel front-facing camera for selfies. MSRP: $349.95.

D500: The crop sensor flagship  

Packed with a new 20.9-megapixel CMOS sensor and incredible processing power, the D500 redefines the crop sensor category with professional-level weather sealing and speed. It shares its precise autofocus system with the top-of-the-line D5, while offering a compact body that’s ideal for travel or daily shooting. The D500 also introduces Nikon’s new SnapBridge technology, which creates a Bluetooth supported connection between your camera and a compatible smart device for automatic image transfers and easy social media sharing. MSRP: $2,699.95 (body only); $3,599.95 (with AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-80mm f/2.8-4E ED VR lens).

D3400: Your first D-SLR

The entry-level D3400 is perfect for the beginner who wants more from photography, with the ability to shoot in low light, zoom into the distance and capture quick-moving subjects with clarity and confidence. Its large 24.2-megapixel image sensor captures stunning images. Nikon’s thoughtful Guide Mode provides step-by-step instruction for using advanced settings and builds a deeper understanding of the art of photography. MSRP: $519.95 (body only); $649.95 (with AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens).

COOLPIX A900: The travel companion

Gearing up for travel doesn’t mean weighing yourself down. The COOLPIX A900 is Nikon’s slimmest long zoom, with a profile not much bigger than a smartphone that packs a 35x optical zoom lens. The tilting screen makes framing high or low angles easy, and the A900 is always connected to your smart device with SnapBridge. Compact and stylish. MSRP: $499.95.

COOLPIX B700: A superzoom for wildlife photos, landscapes and portraits

Nikon’s latest superzoom features a 60x optical zoom that brings into focus subjects you can barely see unaided. For challenging shots of birds in flight, frame the shot with the viewfinder instead of the LCD screen and shoot at 5 frames per second. The versatile lens expands from wide-angle to telephoto zoom for portraits, landscapes and detailed distance shots. No detail is lost with the ability to shoot in 4K and save images in the RAW file format. MSRP: $579.95.

COOLPIX S33: A durable, affordable camera for kids

If the kids are reaching for the camera, give them one of their own that’s built to withstand the rigours of play. The COOLPIX S33 is waterproof (33ft / 10m), shockproof (5ft / 1.5m) and freezeproof (14F / -10C). Creative styles and effects help them get the shots they want. The S33 includes 1080p Full HD video and comes in blue or white. MSRP: $139.95.
