Nikon has released the Coolpix 995 to replace the Coolpix 990.

This camera has a 3.34-megapixel CCD - recording images at a resolution of 2,048-x-1,536 pixels - and a 4x optical-zoom.

New features include a pop-up flash - its predecessor had one built-in – noise reduction mode and colour saturation mode.

Noise reduction mode enhances image quality by cancelling background noise, while colour saturation mode modifies the appearance of colours in pictures. The white balance can be set manually to fine, incandescent, florescent, cloudy and speed-light.

Falling down Feedback from the Coolpix 990 revealed that it toppled over when an optional lens was attached. The new Coolpix 995 incorporates a Swivel Limiter that stops this, according to Nikon.

Two camera bundles are available - a Standard Kit and Premier Kit - which both ship with a leather case. The £800 Standard Kit has a 16MB CompactFlash memory card, rechargeable Li-ion battery, battery charger, Nikon View 4.0, Photoshop 5.0 LE and Fotostation 4.5.

The £900 Premier kit has a 16 and 32MB CompactFlash memory card, a 2x rechargeable Li-ion battery, battery charger, filter set, Nikon View 4.0, Photoshop 5.0 LE and Fotostation 4.5.
