If you’re thinking of buying a top-end Nikon camera then you’d be wise to buy before Sunday. The firm has announced it'll put up its UK prices on that day.

The rise – which kicks in on 1 March – will affect the firm’s imaging and optics products. Its famous Coolpix compact camera range won’t become more expensive this weekend, but only “selected" digital SLRs will be spared the increase.

Nikon said the price rise – which is actually its second such increase this year - is due to “the relative weakness of Sterling and continued strength of the Yen”.

A finalised list of prices will be published online on 1 March. ®
