Nikon Coolpix L20

The Nikon COOLPIX L20 is showing the world that a low cost camera does not imply low quality. With amazing features normally only found in high end cameras, the L20 will amaze you for years to come after you open up the box.

With 10.0 megapixels, you will be able to take high quality photos of stunning quality. Prints can be made up to 16 by 20 inches, while still keeping the sharpness. Most low cost cameras only have 6 or 8 megapixels, which will not only produce lower quality images, but also lower resolution as well. The 10 megapixels will provide enough power for taking simple portraits, to getting high detailed landscapes with beautiful colours and razor sharp looks.

The 3.6x optical zoom of the L20 will allow you to get close and personal with whatever you’re capturing – whether it’s a sporting event or bird watching in the park, you will get high resolution close ups with great, sharp detail. Featuring a NIKKOR glass lens, you will not be disappointed as you use the camera over time.

Featuring the new EXPEED image processor, you can be sure that every picture will be as great as possible. The EXPEED processor quickly factors in many things, such as lighting, colour and zoom to determine the best way to capture the image and then it optimises many features inside the camera to make natural looking pictures of unbelievable quality, all with a quick response time. This ensures that you won’t have to wait a few moments for the lens to move, so taking that family photo will be easier than ever as everyone won’t be waiting for 10 seconds for the lens to open up.

Another great feature of the L20 is the large 3 inch high res LCD screen. It makes sharing photos easier, as you can easily view them on the screen instead of having to upload them to a computer to view them for quality. The screen is high contrast, and even has an anti-reflection coating so that you can view the screen even in the most direct sunlight.

The built in motion detection system is great for keeping pictures sharp, as it controls the speed of the shutter and even the ISO settings to compensate for a shaky hand when holding the camera, so even when taking close-ups the picture will stay clear and blur will be reduced as much as possible.

ISO can be adjusted up to 1600, for those times when you want to take a picture in the dark and need an extra sensitive image capture that keeps the image looking natural. The auto scene selector setting enables ease of use, especially for beginners. When this setting is enabled you just set it and the camera will automatically adjust the settings based on the scene which you are photographing at the time.

The final feature which separates the L20 from the competition is the Smart Portrait technology. It can detect up to 12 faces at a time, remove red eye, and even wait to take the picture until everyone is smiling. This will always ensure that the family portraits are perfect every time!
