Nikon Coolpix L610 (Black)


There aren't a lot of options if you want a compact camera with a long zoom lens and powered by AA batteries. Even fewer if you want that camera to be somewhat pocketable. In fact, outside of the Nikon Coolpix L610, there's really only one other...

The Nikon Coolpix L610 has an above-average feature set for its street price, including a backside-illuminated CMOS sensor and 14x zoom, and uses AA batteries for power.

Shooting performance, while better than most in this category, is too slow for photos of kids and pets. Battery life is short with alkaline batteries. Flash must be manually popped up and the optical zoom doesn't work while recording video.

Though nothing extraordinary, the Nikon Coolpix L610 is a decent entry-level compact camera that shoots slightly above its price.

Easy Auto shooting mode is accurate and easy in all situations ; Dedicated Video Capture Button is always ready to record ; 14x optical zoom lens is ready for any shooting scenario you come across ; Good image quality ; 1cm Macro is amazing for extreme...

HD movies look blotchy and do not run smoothly on a computer ; Some noise in all images - Normal with most 16-Megapixel image sensors ; Flash is not very powerful and is slow to charge from AA-type batteries ; No HDMI output for HD movies on an HDTV

Nikon Coolpix L610


The L610 looks to compete directly with Canon's SX150, both of which run on AA batteries and sport a decent zoom range. The L610's 14x optical zoom isn't much compared to the 20x zooms found on higher end compact zoom models, or indeed its bulkier L810...

"Awful customer service. Lens problems."


Received the camera last year as a present. About a month ago, I turned it on and the lens would not extend and I received a "Lens Error" message on the screen. After looking into it online I found that this is a common problem with this camera. It's...

Consumer review by:

"Very nice camera!"


All in all, it is a very nice camera, with great features, and seems to be worth the money I spent on it. I don't know if it is just the camera I got, but any time I try to record video, it says the batteries are exhausted, even if they are brand new....

-Very nice features with lots of different scenes

-Hands need to be very still to take photos while zoomed (to be expected)

Batteries don't last very long


The issue that I have with this camera is the batteries don't last very long at all. I have replaced the batteries twice and each time have only used it about 20 minutes, for a few photos and a couple short videos.
