Nikon has announced its Nikcon Coolpix L320 compact camera that features a 26x extreme wide-angle optical zoom with a truly affordable price tag.
A 16-megapixel image sensor is bundled in with the super-zoom lens, alongside four automatic anti-blur functions to ensure crisp images even when zooming in close to the action.
“The Coolpix L320 is an easy to use, versatile camera that allows you to capture special moments; from family scenes to action shots,” said James Loader, product manager for Consumer Products at Nikon UK. “Creative photographers will enjoy shooting still images and video, and the AA batteries make this camera ideal for travelling.”
Nikon Coolpix L320 Features
With the Nikon Coolpix L320, Nikon has tried to produce a compact camera that packs in as many technological features as possible whilst still remaining within an affordable price range. The Nikon Coolpix L320 plays host to an impressive 26x extreme wide-angle optical zoom lens with a range of 22.5 – 585mm, making the compact capable of capturing vast vistas as well as distant action shots.
Countering the effects of any camera shake, the Nikon Coolpix L320 is in-built with four different functions to combat blur, including Lens-shift Vibration Reduction, motion detection and a Best Shot Selector that picks the best snap out of ten sequential shots. These anti-blur technologies, coupled with a 16-megapixel image sensor with a high ISO of up to 1600, should ensure that the compact produces clear and crisp images whatever the situation.
The Nikon Coolpix L320 can shoot video with a720p HD resolution via its dedicated movie button, all viewed through the 3-inch 230k-dot LCD screen.
18 scenes mode automatically adjust the camera’s settings according to the location the user is in, but can also be set to achieve specific photographic styles or effects. When taking photographs of friends and family, users can expect a great portrait as the Nokin Coolpix L320 features a smile timer to capture the subject is smiling, blink detectors, a skin smoothing function and red-eye corrector.
The Expeed C2 images processing system is on board, as is compatibility with Eye-Fi X2 cards and above, allowing data transfer over a Wi-Fi connection.
Nikon also claims that the compact is the perfect travelling buddy, due to using four AA batteries as a power source, rather than a rechargeable Lithium-ion battery.
