Nikon Coolpix L6

Category: Point-and-Shoot

The Nikon Coolpix L6 is Nikon's budget digital camera in its 'Life' series. It features 6.0MP resolution, a 3x optical Zoom-Nikkor lens, and a large 2.5-in. LCD monitor.

Its claim to fame is its incredibly miserly power consumption: You can capture approx 1,000 shots with the included Energizer(R) e2(R) Lithium(R) AA batteries, 400 shots with alkaline batteries, and 540 shots with EN-MH1 rechargeable Ni-MH batteries (based on CIPA standard).

The Nikon L6 accepts the Secure Digital (SD) card and has about 23MB of Internal Memory.

Nikon In-Camera Innovations in the Coolpix L6: 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 L6 should appeal to first-time budget-conscious point-and-shoot photographers desiring an easy-to-use compact digital camera with batteries that keep going on, and on, and on....
