Very good image quality.Excellent 256-segment Matrix metering.Natural colours.5X optical zoom.2.5-inch monitor.Compact and light

Soft focus images at the widest angle.No control over sensitivity (ISO) ; Drains batteries faster than comparable cameras with a smaller LCD monitor

Nikon Coolpix L1

 

We aren't entirely sure what Nikon were aiming to achieve with their Coolpix L1. Its height and length would almost lend it towards being an ultra-compact model, but it is one of the widest models we've laid out hands on in recent months, with a nug...

Surprising battery life, sharp pictures, 5x zoom

Chunky design, Missing ISO settings, average speed

"The little dwarf" is a reasonable purchase. It has no extremely bad features, and offers some exceptionally sharp pictures in the right setting.

Nikon Coolpix L1 review

 

Nikon Coolpix L1

Simple operation; excellent photo quality; long 5X zoom for such a compact package.

Slow operation; few manual controls; too expensive for what you get.

The Nikon Coolpix L1 is a bare-bones camera with slow operation but very good image quality that will please casual snapshooters.

Nikon Coolpix L1 6.2MP Digital Camera

 

If you are looking for an entry level camera, is the L1 a good choice? The camera has it's share of problems, but does the great picture quality make up for it's other issues?

The Coolpix L1 has a lot to offer, and there's no doubt it's a decent camera for the first time camera user or someone who just wants the ability to take really quick photos without worrying about them looking horrible. Fact is though, this camera is...
