I merely placed my email and a copyright 2014 in the comment section. I know Photoshop can be set to have actions dependent on the serial number. I will try this next. I use Photoshop CS and plan to edit in RAW, my use of the import function is limited but I isolate each camera into its own folder and then name actions can be used.

I have used small speed lights set to reduced power to trigger both studio and pole mounted flash units. I have worked within all cameras limitations since 1965, any Nikon except the D400 has an AA mode opening up the use of old outdated non digital flash units. And with the movement to continuous LED lights, for both stills and movies what is the problem. My real use is to avoid carrying the D7100 and a 18-200 lens for shooting cars for Web Pages. This camera is perfect for that. I what high quality raw files in a camera that fits in my pocket.

I am an owner of the Coolpix A. Turning the power on extends the lens immediately and the camera is ready to snap. I'd say the process takes less than 3 seconds.

answer 2
The shutter lag time is not part of the published specifications for the COOLPIX A. However, the COOLPIX A utilizes an EXPEED 2 image-processing engine and handles image data with extraordinary speed and accuracy, while efficiently managing to avoid generating excess heat. Additionally, the COOLPIX A's Mechanical and CMOS electronic shutter is highly responsive and can continuously shoot up to 4 frames per second*.

*Up to 26 shots when image size is set to L and image quality is set to NORMAL.

Nikon does not currently produce any 46mm filters for the COOLPIX A but there are many third party filters of this size available on the market. While we cannot offer advice or support on third party products, you may want to refer to this have this article Nikonusa.com that discusses the effects of various types of filters:

a work around for old versions of CNX is to change the header of the nef file, where the camera model is mentioned. For instance, one can use exiftool to change the header model into D300, D700, etc, and the capture nx will read it.

The manual alludes to an aperture range of f/2.8 to f/22 (page 55).
In the specs, page 246, it says it has an aperture adjustment range of 19 steps of 1/3 EV which is a weird way of stating the aperture range. Anyway, that probably means it has a range of f/2.8 to f/22. Depending on how you interpret "steps", it could be f/2.8 to f/25.

The Maximum aperture of the Coolpix A is f/2.8. The focal length of the lens is fixed at 18.5mm (angle of view equivalent to that of a 28mm lens in 35mm, or FX format).

The Coolpix A has a built-in intervalometer that allows you to select your start time, the length of each interval (up to 24 hours apart) and the number of intervals (up to 999). You can use the intervalometer on the Coolpix A in either Single or Continous shooting mode but it will only take a single frame per interval.

When you shoot continuously on the Coolpix A the camera takes photos at about 4 fps while the shutter release button is pressed down. You could create a time-lapse effect using photos shot in this mode, but it would require you to be with the camera during the duration of the shooting. Using the Interval Timer shooting option allows you to set up the COOLPIX A and leave it to shoot on its own.

More info on the COOLPIX A's Interval Timer shooting option can be found starting on page 127 of the COOLPIX A manual. The COOLPIX A manual can be found here:
