Nikon unveils three new cameras
Nikon has added three new cameras to its line of point-and-shoot digital offerings. The first, and most advanced of these new cameras is the Coolpix A featuring a DX-format CMOS sensor. The camera has a wide-angle 18.5 mm F/2.8 lens which makes it appropriate for a range of shooting scenarios according to Nikon.
The Coolpix A also uses a seven-blade iris diaphragm allowing for natural blur characteristics. The camera has a resolution of 16.2-megapixels, can shoot 14-bit compressed RAW images, and can record full HD resolution digital movies. Nikon promises that the Coolpix S will deliver the kind of image quality typically reserved for D-SLR cameras
The camera also has a hot shoe supporting multiple accessories including an optical viewfinder and the rear display is a three-inch unit with a resolution 921,000 dots.
The next camera is the Coolpix P330 that features a number of Nikon optical technologies to allow for very high quality landscapes and night photos thanks to a maximum aperture of F/1.8. The camera has a compact body and uses high refractive index lens and aspherical lens elements. The camera has a resolution of 12.2-megapixels and uses a 1/1.7-inch backside illuminated CMOS sensor.
The Coolpic P330 has advanced compensation for shake and an active mode for the vibration reduction function. Active mode allows for stable and clear movies and photos when taken from a car or while walking. The camera can record full HD resolution movies and has in camera editing functions. The camera is A-GPS compatible allowing for geotagging of images. The rear display is a three-inch 921,000-dot TFT unit.
The final new camera is the 20.1-megapixel Coolpix S3500. This is a slim and compact camera measuring 96.8 mm wide by 57.8 mm high by 20.5 mm deep. It features a seven times optical zoom lens and lens-shift vibration reduction. The camera has a number of onboard image editing functions and offers a wide range of color options including silver, black, red, purple, orange, pink, blue, and decorative pink.
Pricing and availability is not available at this time for Nikon’s new offerings.

RE: Not convinced that the Coolpix A will give meaningfully better results than the Sony RX100

I'd go for larger sensor if I can get interchangeable lens or, at least, half-decent zoom. Being permanently locked in 28mm wide feels a bit... limiting.
