The point and shoot market received another addition; and so did the mirrorless camera market. You’re looking at the new Nikon Coolpix L610: a compact superzoom camera that comes in three pretty colors. Otherwise though, the highly rumored Nikon J2 is also being announced. Replacing the J1, it is the camera aimed at the point and shoot market for the most part.
Specs, photos, and all that jazz are after the jump.
