Nikon Coolpix L2

 

Very good image quality.No noise in images from 50 to 100 ISO.Reliable matrix metering.No distortion or chromatic aberration.Compact.Very simple to use.

Flash offers limited range.No control over sensitivity (ISO).Telephoto shots easily affected by camera shake.Focusing occasionally difficult under room light.

Nikon Coolpix L2

 

One of the cheapest Nikon digital cameras you can buy the L2 is a typical point and shoot model. Ease of use and a low price are certainly amongst its biggest attractions.

Ease of use ; Build quality ; No red eye in test shot

Indoor shots ; Shutter lag

"The Nikon Coolpix L2 looks good and I like the build quality of this camera. It is certainly a step ahead of many similar models. Picture quality is mixed though and I feel there are other six megapixel, point and shoot models offering better value...

Review: Nikon Coolpix L2

 

While this camera may seem designed more for the younger and cheaper end of the market, underneath it offers a good range of features and is the latest is Nikon's Lifestyle range of cameras...

Excellent design, advanced features which actually work

3x optical zoom (4x would be nice?), very short battery life (50-100 shots with normal usage)

The Nikon L2 is compact, stylish and easy to use. Beneath this camera's sleek exterior lies a good range of features which are genuinely effective, not gimmicky. Perhaps designed with the youth market in mind, it deserves to be considered by a wider...

Nikon Coolpix L2 Review

 

Clearly, Nikon has cut too many corners with the Coolpix L2. The lens, which delivers good sharpness, is betrayed by strong barrel distortion at wide-angle and a very narrow aperture (F5.3) at telephoto.

Nicely saturated image colors, Reliable metering, Great macro focusing, Built-in camera guide, Easy to handle, Good LCD visibility

High image noise, No control over ISO, Poor automatic white balance under artificial light, Slow lens at telephoto, Some barrel distortion, Overly slow
