Nikon Coolpix L11 (Silver)

 

It's easy to forget about budget cameras. They don't tend to be flashy, they rarely have unique features, and they just aren't very interesting. You shouldn't count them out, though; some budget cameras offer surprisingly good picture quality for a...

Nice photos; decent performance for a budget camera; face detection.

Few controls; slow flash recycle time.

The Nikon Coolpix L11 is a decent budget camera, if you can overlook its scant manual controls.

Digital Camera Review: Nikon CoolPix 6.0 Megapixel Consumer Camera

 

The Nikon CoolPix 6.0 Megapixel Digital Camera, Model: L11 is one of the best digital cameras I have reviewed to date.

Consumer review by:

"a benchmark purchase"

 

as said above ... you have nearly more then 50 vdo clips to evaluate... less then one meter distance photography

if budget , digital + optic zoom wise , MPl and base line requirement for family... SD card slot and home pc correction later . this is a benchmark..Use mini stand recharger cables for 5 X8 pictures OK !!!!! grossly... amature perspective. angle..

would love to have a technology to increase the optical zoom capacity for more professional clearity.. Image below one meter distance also requires to be compromised

Product Specifications

Impressively high megapixel counts enable the COOLPIX L11 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 L11 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.
