16 MP Backside-Illuminated (Low-Light) CMOS Sensor

The Nikon Coolpix A1000 Digital Camera is equipped with a powerful 16MP CMOS Sensor, that’s specifically designed to utilise in low-light environments and also to capture astonishing image quality throughout its zoom range. The Backside-Illuminated sensor gathers maximum light – leading to much sharper images that have been photographed in dark situations.

  • ISO ISO Exposure is controlled by three elements: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. The ISO speed determines how sensitive a camera's sensor is to incoming light. A higher ISO speed absorbs more light, resulting in a brighter exposure, however, a higher ISO also results in more digital noise in low-light conditions. Cameras with larger sensors (like full-frame cameras) typically have higher ISO speed capability and produce less digital noise at high ISO settings. Digital cameras include a control for adjusting ISO speed, some of which can be set to adjust automatically in combination with certain other exposure settings. ISO is indicated in numbers usually starting at 100 and going upward (200, 400, 800, 1600 etc.) doubling in sensitivity each time. Most cameras also indicate 3rd stop intervals (100, 125, 180, 200 etc.)6400

High-Performance 35x Optical Zoom LensZOOM LENSAllows a camera to, unlike a fixed-focal length or prime lens, change smoothly from a long shot to a close-up or vice versa by varying the focal length. A true zoom lens, also called a parfocal lens, is one that maintains focus when its focal length changes. Due to more moving parts, zoom lenses often produce images of slightly lesser quality than their prime lens counterparts. However due to the inherent flexibility of being able to vary the focal length, they are extremely popular for photography where composition needs to be adapted quickly - such as at weddings, for example.

Incorporated into the Nikon A1000 Camera is a high-performance 35x Optical Zoom Lens that allows you to zoom quite close up to your subject – providing a wide-angle to telephotoTELEPHOTOA lens with long focal length capable of making distant objects appear nearer thus larger. Essentially, it isolates and magnifies the subject so that it appears as a full image when shooting from a distance. Telephoto lenses are ideal for photographing subjects that are further away, such as wildlife and sports photography. zoom. If you need to get really close-up to your subject then you can make use of the Dynamic Fine Zoom which would then double up the zoom, reaching for a whopping 1680 mm equivalent view, and you can get really close to your subjects when having the MacroMACROProducing photographs that render extreme close-ups of extremely small subjects like insects, hence its popularity among nature photographers. It requires using a macro lens with a large reproduction (magnification) ratio of at least 1:1, which renders a subject larger than life size. Macro lenses are capable of focussing at extremely short distances (some as little as a few centimetres), allowing the photographer to get very close to the subject. Mode switched on, as close as 0.4 inches.
