The following is an update on the release of the new COOLPIX A900 and B700 compact digital cameras (announced on February 23, 2016).
On April 20, we announced that release of the COOLPIX A900 and B700 would be delayed until July as more time was required for software adjustment. However, due to the effects of the 2016 Kumamoto earthquakes, release of these cameras is now scheduled for October 2016.
