This Nikon Coolpix L2 Review is based on a production model. All sample images are unretouched, except where specified.

This review has been submitted to DIWA Awards [Total: 65%].

The Nikon Coolpix L2 is a simple-to-use ultra-compact digital camera and is JeansPocket™ Certified. It has 6.0MP resolution and a 3x optical zoom.

Designed for straightforward point-and-shoot photography, it has AUTO mode augmented with 15 easy-to-use Scene Modes.

A 2.0-in. LCD monitor has 86,000 pixels resolution, kind of low by today's standards, but good enough for outdoors use.

The Nikon L2 is not particularly fast, with a noticeable shutter lag due to a slow autofocus. However, if you prefocus, shutter lag becomes negligible.

Image quality is good to very good. The L2 does very well when the subject is well-lit (e.g. in a "sunny outdoors" environment), and images at low ISO (ISO is automatically selected from 50 to 200) have very low noise. Metering is precise. Chromatic Aberration is not a problem in everyday shots.

Movies (with sound) are recorded 640x480 pixels at 30fps until the memory card is full. Battery life is excellent: approx 180 shots with alkaline, 600 shots with lithium, or 320 shots with NiMH EN-MH1 (CIPA standard).

The Nikon Coolpix L2 is targeted to entry-level photographers desiring automated operations in an ultra-compact, simple-to-use and affordable digital camera. Nikon's unique D-Lighting and Best Shot Selector help the beginner get the shot in less than ideal situations. Recommended for sunny outdoors use.
