    Best regards.
    They are converted Raw images.

    In that case, are their spec comparable or A is better since it's using a DX sensor?

    Ever thought about comparing the specifications? I heard somewhere that might help.

    Please try some research before asking. A little bit effort goes a long way.

    Considering the sensor size, that's perfectly logical

    Not sure if it's my screen, but the pics look a bit 'gritty'? Like they're from a small sensor?

    Not sure at all what you mean by "gritty"?

    I would think that typically a small sensor would produce mushy outputs of areas in an image with fine details like grass or leaves on the trees or brickwork or windows in faraway highrise buildings, etc because they could not resolve the details. A large sensored camera like the Coolpix A could resolve such details which would be obvious when viewed at 100% resolution but if severely reduced in size like in this case, could cause all these fine details to look crushed together and maybe 'gritty' like what you thought, or looked overly sharpened.

    I actually took the same scenes with my Sigma DP1M which has the same focal length lens and sensor size of the Coolpix A for comparison. The resolution of the Sigma DP1M images at 100% viewing is way higher than those of the Coolpix A and would probably look even 'grittier' to you than those of the Coolpix A when reduced to same size for posting.

    Example:

    Thanks for your explanation. It's just that on my laptop the downsampled pics which were shot in harsh sunlight made the pics look 'unnatural'. Anyway I appreciate your efforts in providing your opinions and pics from this camera.

    I see jaggard edges. This is especially evident in the 2nd photo. Photos look like they were over shaprened.

    It's probably due to the severe downsizing and jpeg compression in the posted images. They don't have jagged edges when viewed at 100% resolution.

    Can you post them fullrez or at least 2k?

    An urban photographer's review of the Coolpix A.
    Review: The Nikon Coolpix A

    "I think technical image quality of the overall package matches or slightly exceeds that of the Leica M9/ 28/2.8 ASPH or 28/2 ASPH combinations, and far exceeds the Zeiss ZM 2.8/28 Biogon/ M9 combination. (I’ve shot thousands of exposures with all three under a wide variety of conditions, so I’m intimately familiar with the results.) Needless to say, high ISO performance of the Coolpix A is significantly better. There’s also the size/ responsiveness/ portability equation to consider, too. I can’t help but think the quality of the results put the price very much in perspective."
