Nikon CoolPix L14

 

Sometimes a cheap camera is a bargain, but then other times you get just what you pay for.

Nikon Coolpix L14 digital camera

 

Nikon's “L” or Life series of digital cameras have received a double update in the shape of this the Coolpix L14 and the yet to be tested L15. The camera is eminently pocketable and though of plastic build is well made. It comes in two colours, the...

Image quality at low ISO, face detection AF, simple to use, Easy Auto Mode

No manual controls, no control over ISO settings, very slow flash recycle, sluggish performance overall, no optical viewfinder, smaller LCD (than previous L12 model)

Easy to use with good image quality at lower ISOs the Nikon Coolpix L14 makes a good budget snapper but one that has real problems in terms of speed of use.

Nikon Coolpix L14

 

The average price of a digital camera continues to fall, but few of the big manufacturers venture far below 100. Nikon is an exception, with three models currently available for less than 80. The L14 is the latest and most highly specified, with a 7.1...

Competent, but there are better deals around. Reliable, affordable, but not faultless.

Nikon COOLPIX L14

 

It might be flawed, but the L14 still has something to offer

It has no advanced controls, is made of plastic and the images aren't brilliant, but we still kind of like it.

Nikon Coolpix L14 Digital Camera - Express Review - The Imaging Resource!

 

The Nikon Coolpix L14 features a seven megapixel CCD linked to a Nikkor-branded 3x optical zoom lens, in an understated, stylish and relatively compact body. The Coolpix L14 offers a 2.4-inch 115,000 pixel LCD for framing and playback, but like many...

Comfortable body design: well shaped and light weight ; Relatively good performance on startup/shutdown and shutter lag ; Handy in-camera editing features D-Lighting, Crop, and Small Picture ; Stop Motion Movie mode ; Good color ; AA batteries deliver...

Soft images with 1,200 lines of resolution ; Slow flash recharge ; Sluggish digital zoom ; Slow USB connection

Nikon is known for a few special features that are included in the Nikon L14, including D-Lighting (which enhances darker images to improve shadow detail), Best Shot Selector mode (which takes a series of shots, letting the camera automatically pick...

Inexpensive Nikon LIFE series camera takes 1,000 shots on two AAs!

 

Overall, what you get with the Nikon Coolpix L14 is a basic but competent 7.1 megapixel Nikon camera at a most attractive price. It is strictly a point & shooter with no manual control, but you do get 16 shooting modes. The camera is compact and light,...

A real 7.1 megapixel Nikon at a very low price, Up to 1,000 pictures from a single set of two AA Lithium batteries, Very simple to use and operate, Face recognition mode, Full speed VGA movies with sound

Relatively small and low-res LCD, No voice recording or sound notes, No image stabilization

Nikon Coolpix L14

 

For oldtimers, the name Nikon still conjures up high-quality, top-end single lens reflex cameras, and Nikon continutes to be very active in that space. However, the company also saw the handwriting on the wall and was one of the early adopters in the...
