Nikon Coolpix is the winner
(Megh Mallik — 10/13/2010)
The COOLPIX L110 Boasts 15x Zoom and HD Movie Capability, While the COOLPIX L22 Digital Camera Offers Big Features at a Small Price.
While the L110 digital camera affords users the ability to get close to all of life’s moments with its powerful zoom lens, the compact design and ease of use of the L22 makes it the go-anywhere, anytime digital camera for any occasion.
The L-series point-and-shoot digital cameras define simplicity and value, ready to capture life’s precious moments with stunning quality and clarity with the aid of Nikon technologies such as the Smart Portrait System, Scene Auto Selector and legendary NIKKOR Optics.
These new additions to the COOLPIX L-series continue the tradition of empowering consumers to enjoy photography with cameras that are easy to use, with features that make taking great photos an enjoyable experience for the whole family.
Both of these new Life series cameras help make flattering portraits of friends and family easy with the Smart Portrait System, which integrates the following advanced features:
In-Camera Red-Eye FixTM automatically fixes most instances of red-eye
Enhanced Face-Priority AF can detect up to 12 faces from a variety of angles
Smile Mode automatically detects when your subject smiles and releases the shutter.
Blink Warning notifies the user when a subject has blinked in a photo
The COOLPIX L110 Digital CameraThe L110 digital camera achieves its versatility through a 15x Optical Zoom-NIKKOR lens. Covering a wide 28mm to 420mm super-telephoto focal range, the lens can readily handle everything from action shots at the kid’s soccer game to stunning landscapes from the family vacation.
The 12.1-megapixel COOLPIX L110 features a large, bright 3.0-inch high-resolution (460,000-dot) LCD for easy composition, viewing, and sharing of images; while a new High Definition (HD) 720p movie mode features a built-in stereo microphone, and a dedicated movie selector button that makes it simple to switch from capturing stills to recording HD movies. In addition, the COOLPIX L110 digital camera features the ability to utilize the optical zoom and auto focus operations during video capture to make focusing and staying with the action simple and easy.
For example, when photographing or capturing video clips of fast moving pets or children, users will be able to retain focus and easily keep the subject within the frame. Additionally, consumers will not miss the action with Sport Continuous Mode, which captures images at a blazing 11.1 frames per second (3 MP resolution).
The Nikon Coolpix L110 is a winner for the price. While image quality perhaps isn't its sweetest spot, there's no denying that an easy to use point-and-shoot with a 15x optical zoom for under £200 is a decent buy. The AA battery power may be an off-put for some, yet a reason to purchase for others. Certainly not the smallest of cameras for those looking for a true ‘compact' compact, but the L110 does pack in a big lens, is well designed and easy to use. It even ties in 720p HD video into the package which is further icing on the cake. Good though not excellent, but you'll have quite a job finding a better competitor than the L110 for less money.
