Nikon Coolpix L10

 

It seems like the photography bug has bitten the whole world. Camera manufacturers are going all out to cater to every consumer need as well. No more is a digital camera out of reach for the average man. I remember a time when buying a digital camera...

So the camera has a few odd glitches of sorts but once you find your way around the menus and you've memorized the manual, you're good to go. I will say that this is a great camera for a first timer. With a price tag of just around Rs. 10,900 (MRP)...

You don't need a high-resolution camera to get good-looking pictures. If they're made right, 5-megapixel cameras can produce great photos. If you're on a tight budget, but still want to take some photos, consider the Nikon Coolpix L10. This little...

Decent picture quality; decent performance.

Very few controls; very slow flash recycle time; relatively low resolution; slow shutter in low light.

The Nikon Coolpix L10 makes a great budget point-and-shoot camera, if you don't mind its paltry 5-megapixel resolution.

Nikon CoolPix L10 Silver Digital Camera (5.0MP, 2560x1920, 3x Opt, 7MB Internal Memory, SD/SDHC Card Slot)

 

The Nikon Coolpix L10 ($120 as of 5/10/07) is an excellent value for a simple snapshot camera. Yet there's nothing cheap-looking about the L10: It has a stylish, thin-profile body that slides nicely into a pocket.

Sleek, pocketable design ; Face detection auto focus

No viewfinder; small LCD ; Zoom control is difficult to operate

The L10 is sleek and offers custom white balance, panorama mode, and face recognition auto focus. But the LCD is small.

Nikon Coolpix L10 Digital Camera - Express Review

 

The Nikon Coolpix L10 doesn't look like a digital camera made for kids but it's priced just right for them. And it's a great deal on a digital camera for anyone who enjoys composing images, and capturing the moment without having to worry about...

If you want the status of packing a Nikon camera, the new L10 is the cheapest camera ever introduced by the firm. Yet, even as the entry point in Nikon's extensive line of cameras, the L10 offers more dedicated shooting modes than the HP Photosmart...

The playback menu on the CoolPix L10 has the normal features you'd expect such as tagging images for printing, deleting and protecting images and creating a slide show. In addition, however, there are several unique functions. First, when viewing a...

Nikon COOLPIX L10, L11 and L12 Digital Camera Review

 

Beginning March 2007, 3 new compact digitals from Nikon are available: L10 (5MP), L11 (6MP) and L12 (7MP). Like other Nikon cameras in this series, these new point-and-shoot digicams feature In-Camera Red-Eye Fix that can automatically overcome the...

Product Specifications

Impressively high megapixel counts enable the COOLPIX L10 to capture images with captivating color and outstanding detail. Such capability also means images can be considerably enlarged, yet still look absolutely stunning. Accurately measuring available light, the L10 automatically selects the best sensitivity setting. And with impressive sensitivity range up to ISO 800, it makes it easy to take great looking pictures in low light conditions. Compatibility with AA-size batteries, which are widely available around the world, means users can go on shooting virtually anywhere without worrying about recharging or running out of power.
