Nikon has unveiled cameras in two different ranges, including one new series of premium compact cameras. Three new additions are being made to the Coolpix range, with two including the ability to record 4K video, while the new DL collection offers three different compact cameras, with all in the range having relatively similar basic specifications and one-inch sensors, but differ by having varying types of fixed lenses on the front.
Today, Nikon announced the addition of new zoom Coolpix P610 and Coolpix L840 cameras to its compact camera lineup. These Coolpix offerings incorporate the latest Nikon imaging technology, with Nikkor optics that offer super-long zoom lenses of 60x and 38x, respectively. Also released are the the compact Coolpix S9900, S7000 and S6900 for entry-level shooters.
Nikon is expanding its Coolpix range with three more compact cameras in the United Kingdom. The Coolpix S2900 and the Coolpix S3700 pack a 20-megapixel CCD image sensor inside their small and colorful casings, while the Coolpix L31 is a cheaper model with a 16-megapixel CCD sensor, powered by easily-replaceable AA batteries.
Nikon's second camera launch of the day is a new device in its Coolpix compact camera range aimed at "selfies." The Coolpix S6900 is a 16-megapixel shooter with a wide-angle 12x optical zoom lens, with Nikon pitching it as a camera for impromptu self portraits and sharing on social networks, thanks to its display, stand, and Wi-Fi connectivity.
Nikon is adding another camera to its popular Coolpix line, with an Android-based device. The Coolpix S810c runs on Android 4.2.2, an upgrade from the Android 2.3 used in the Coolpix S800c two years ago, and while it has a similar 16-megapixel sensor to its predecessor, its optical zoom has been improved from 10x to a greater 12x, doubling to 24x using "Dynamic Fine Zoom."
Nikon announced the latest additions to its lineup of Coolpix cameras that offer advanced optics and performance. The 60x zoom Coolpix P600 and 42x zoom Coolpix P530 provide super-long zoom lenses, and the ability to capture images and Full HD (1080p) videos. Additionally, the slim 30x zoom Coolpix S9700 and the Coolpix P340 claim to provide quality images in a compact package.
Camera maker Nikon has used the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas to debut a new line of consumer-oriented Coolpix cameras as well as a replacement for the entry-level D3200 DSLR. It also announced that it will produce a successor to the D4, called the D4S, later this year. The new D3300 now features 24-megapixel shooting, full HD video at 60fps, in-camera panorama and burst shooting. The Coolpix models are mostly point-and-shoot, with one "superzoom" offering.
Nikon on Wednesday debuted two new cameras that are upgrades from previous models. The Coolpix S02 follows the pocketable compact point-and-shoot S01, and is even smaller and lighter than its predecessor. It's goal is to be a tiny camera that still take better pictures than most mobile phones, but light enough to convince consumers to also bring it along. The larger Coolpix P7800 is a sequel to last year's P7700, and adds a significantly-improved 921,000-dot electronic viewfinder and wider aperture range, aiming more for the advanced consumer market.
Nikon has launched a pair of cameras in its Coolpix compact camera range. The Coolpix S6600 offers a 16-megapixel backside-illuminated CMOS sensor with lens-shift vibration reduction and 12x optical zoom, while the Coolpix L620 is equipped with an 18.1-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor with 14x optical zoom and a similar vibration reduction system.
Nikon has revealed three new Coolpix cameras, including its first with a DX-format CMOS sensor. The Coolpix A aims to offer customers the image quality found in a DSLR but inside a compact camera, while the P330 expands on the groundwork done by the Coolpix P310, and the S3500 provides an upgraded feature set to the Coolpix S line, including lens-shift vibration reduction.

Adele's '25' album now streaming
Recording artist Adele has "pulled a Kanye" after saying that her current album "25" would not be available for streaming. The seven-month-old record, which has yielded a number of hit singles, is now available for streaming on all the major streaming services, such as Apple Music and Spotify, as of today in most major markets, with worldwide distribution to come. Reportedly, the singer had demanded streaming be limited to paid subscribers -- a condition that has hurt some streamers with artists, who aren't paid royalties for free or trial listens . Apple pays performers its normal royalty rates during its free trial, avoiding the issue -- and having repeated success in both signing up exclusives and placing those exclusives into the top of the charts. http://ti.me/28U7NOu

Fifth Hong Kong store to open June 30
The 46th official Apple store in what the company calls the "Greater China" region will open at 10AM local time in Hong Kong's New Town Plaza in the Sha Tin district on Thursday, June 30, according to a new page on Apple's retail website. Despite slowing growth due to economic turmoil in China, the country is still Apple's fastest-growing market. The new story will be the fifth for Hong Kong, a lucrative market for Apple thanks to the high concentration of wealth there and a thriving "gray" market. Normal store hours for the new store will be 10AM to 10PM every day. http://apple.co/291diaT
Apple Music bug bites very short songs
There appears to be a reproducible bug in the current version of iTunes -- version 12.4.1, running on OS X 10.11.5, both the current non-beta versions of the respective software -- that causes a streamed song to become "stuck" in endless buffering if the streamed item just before this happened was 60 seconds or less in length. The problem appears to stem from code in iTunes that signals the next track to start downloading one minute before the currently-playing track is done, and thus songs shorter than one minute don't trigger the download. Locally-stored music is unaffected by the bug, and the problem does not appear to exist in either the macOS Sierra developer beta or versions of iTunes earlier than 12.4, and does not affect the iOS Music app at all. http://bit.ly/291cN0l
Walmart Pay expands to 15 states
Walmart, one of the key progenitors of the failed CurrentC mobile payment system that was distinguished from Apple Pay by its ability to collect and share customer financial and buying data among its participants, has expanded the soft rollout of its alternative solution "Walmart Pay" to an additional 15 US states following a pilot program in Arkansas and Texas last month. Walmart continues to resist adding Apple Pay. The system, built into the Walmart app for iOS and Android, works with a complicated system of the camera scanning a purchase code at the register, then generating a QR code which is then scanned by the register. The system is available now in Alabama, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, North Dakota, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Virginia, and Washington, DC. http://apple.co/28SqZfu
