Nikon Coolpix L4

 

The Coolpix L4 may be very cheap, but sometimes you really do get more than you pay for.

Nikon Coolpix L4

 

The Coolpix L4 is one of the most basic cameras you can buy that carries the famous Nikon brand name. It is also one of the cheapest cameras in their range. It runs on AA batteries and you should find this camera easy to operate.

Ease of use ; No red eye in test shot ; Outdoor landscape type shots

Indoor shots ; Shutter lag

"The Nikon Coolpix L4 is a bit of a mixed bag. Outside in good light the camera takes crisp, sharp photos. Like many digital cameras in this price bracket it tends to struggle in less than perfect light. Shutter lag is also an issue."

Nikon Coolpix L4

 

Attractive and high quality case, A lot of different scenes and modes, Multi-shot mode

Landscape mode had poor quality colours, Focus problems, Shutter lag

Both the L3 and L4 are neat, well designed cameras… as far as they go. The cameras are not for a serious photographer though, as the landscape photos were washed out. Macro and people shots produced better results however. The cameras are trim, little...

Nikon Coolpix L4 review

 

main content The Nikon Coolpix L4 is the least expensive of Nikon's low-end L-series line of digital cameras. The L4 has a small, 4-megapixel sensor, a 3X optical zoom lens, and a handful of scene preset modes but few high-end settings. Though slow and...

Simple to use; decent images; inexpensive.

Sluggish performance; no manual ISO setting; noticeable purple fringing; subpar movie mode.

The Nikon Coolpix L4 produces solid pictures for a budget camera.

Nikon Coolpix L4

 

When your teen needs a camera to document summer memories or you need to return to the basics, turn to the Nikon Coolpix L4.

The 2-inch LCD screen. Trouble-free setup. Useful in-camera features such as Cropping and D-Lighting. Ability to view photos as thumbnails. Easy-to-use interface with Help button. Fifteen screen modes and five color-shooting options.

No viewfinder. Only 16MB of onboard memory. Can't record video with sound. Shutter lag.

Nikon Coolpix L4

 

The Nikon Coolpix L4 produces solid pictures for a budget camera.

Simple to use ; Decent images ; Inexpensive

Sluggish performance ; No manual ISO setting ; Noticeable purple fringing ; Sub par movie mode

The Nikon Coolpix L4 isn't the quickest or most versatile camera out there, but its solid images and tiny price tag make it a good choice for budget-minded photographers who don't need too many options.
