Mouseover image for back view

Category: Point-and-Shoot

The Nikon Coolpix L5 is Nikon's top of the line 'Life' series compact digital camera with 7.2MP resolution, a 5x optical Zoom-Nikkor lens, and a large 2.5-in. LCD monitor.

In addition, the Nikon L5 features true image stabilization (optical lens shift), called Vibration Reduction, that minimizes blurred shots caused by camera shake.

The Nikon L5 accepts the Secure Digital (SD) card and has about 8MB of Internal Memory.

Nikon In-Camera Innovations in the Coolpix L5: In-Camera Red-Eye Fix(TM) automatically fixes most instances of red-eye in the camera; Face-Priority AF is Nikon's face-finding technology that automatically focuses on faces; and, D-Lighting rescues dark or backlit images by improving brightness and detail where needed.

The Nikon Coolpix L5 should appeal to budget-conscious point-and-shoot photographers desiring an easy-to-use compact digital camera with true image stabilization.
