Nikon's new easy-to-use compact super-zoom

Expert review by : Doug Harman (pocket-lint.com)

Nikon Coolpix L100 compact camera

 

The L100 is the new top-of-the-range; long zoom snapper from Nikon topping its "Life" range of easy to use budget models. It's 10-megapixel sensor sports sensor shift VR (Vibration Reduction) to help things stay steady at longer zooms and in low light...

Handling, big LCD, low ISO image quality, easy of use, image stabilisation, lens

No optical viewfinder, high ISO image noise, build, no manual ISO control

Make no bones about it, the L100 is a pared down, simple to use model that, while top of its respective Nikon tree, offers a no-frills shooting experience. Advanced users need not apply.

We pick apart this superzoom compact, revealing exactly what it has on show

The L100 offers simple photography in a well-built camera, but image quality needs to be improved to make it a great compact camera.

Nikon Coolpix L100

 

This camera is simple to use and is really a point and shoot camera with a long lens thrown in. Picture quality is inline with that achieved by more basic cameras, rather than more advanced super zoom cameras.

Ease of use

LCD screen quality

The Nikon Coolpix L100 gives you an option of a long lens on a point and shoot digital camera. The feature set is really cut down to the minimum. This helps to make the camera very easy to use. Picture quality is fair, but if you are looking for...

Nikon Coolpix L100

 

This is the second Nikon offering I have reviewed, the first was extremely popular and I see no reason why this mid sized unit will not be equally so with anyone wanting to progress that bit beyond point and shoot.

The Nikon Coolpix L100 measures 11x7x8cm, the latter figure the width can increase by 2cm when the lens is out. It weights 445grams. It is black with silver colour clips for the neck strap and around the shutter area. The left side has an anchor point...

The Nikon Coolpix L100: with 15x optical zoom, is this chunky superzoom the perfect compact for shooting from afar? Mike Lowe investigates...

Nikon L100 pros: Easy to use, has much needed VR image stabilisation, lens is good quality for this level and a large 3in screen is always a bonus

Nikon L100 cons: No manual ISO control, noisy and soft "Hi ISO" option limits to 3MP, Macro mode ill-effective, AA batteries at a 240 price point may not be for everyone

The Nikon Coolpix L100 is a good superzoom compact - from wide to telephoto you can expect good quality images from a sterling lens, that's only let down by a lack of more developed manual controls, in particular no comprehensive ISO options. At 240...

Nikon Coolpix L100 Review

 

The Nikon L100 is an AA battery-powered superzoom compact nestled at the high end of Nikon's Coolpix 'Life' range. If you're looking for a compact with a long lens for serious shooting from afar then the L100 could well make its way onto your wishlist

Nikon CoolPix L100 digital camera

 

The Nikon CoolPix L100 is an easy-to-use digital camera with a 15x zoom lens.

Easy to use menu and controls, captures clear pictures, fast focusing and shooting, effective image stabilisation at low shutter speeds

Face detection was hit and miss, chromatic aberration noticeable when viewing images at their full size, lens distortion, plenty of noise at high ISO speeds, no long shutter mode

Despite being a very automatic camera, the Nikon CoolPix L100 has left us with a good impression overall. We think it’s a good model to consider if you want a camera with a big zoom that’s also very simple to operate.

Nikon Coolpix L100

 

Looks can be deceptive - the age old cliche applies to the seemingly powerful Nikon Coolpix L100 too.Measuring just 110 x 72 x 78 mm, this hot looking superzoom is smaller than most superzooms, and we
