First Look: Nikon Coolpix L110

2:01 /

The Nikon Coolpix L110 definitely offers a lot for the money, but it still has the photos and shooting performance of an entry-level point-and-shoot.

>>Hi, I'm Josh Goldman, Senior Editor for CNET Reviews and this is the Nikon Coolpix L110. Nikon's L series cameras are its entry-level point and shoot cameras but the L110's general feature set is more than we're used to seeing at its reasonable some $280 price. For starters there's a wide-angle lens with a 15x zoom range with mechanical image stabilization. Then on back you get a 3-inch LCD with twice the resolution than usual for its class and, lastly, you get a 720p HD quality movie capture mode with a dedication record button, stereo mic on top and use of the optical zoom while recording. Though, it does move a little slow. Shooting modes are basic, however, consisting of Nikon's easy auto with scene recognition, programmable auto with control over ISO, white balance and color options, a dozen C modes, a smart portrait setting with blink detection and smile activated shutter release and a sport's continuous mode that will shoot up to 23 megapixel images at 11 frames per second. Unfortunately, on that last one the photos aren't very good mostly because it requires the camera to boost ISO sensitivity which adds noise and softness from noise reduction. In fact, the camera's low light and indoor photos without a flash just aren't very good. Like a lot of compact cameras, its best suited for use outdoors in good lighting. It's also not a fast camera with noticeable shutter lag in bright and dim conditions. Movie quality is on par with a pocket video camera; it's good but jittery when the shooter or subject are moving. Overall, though, it's a pretty good point and shoot camera for the money. I'm Josh Goldman and that's a look at the Nikon Coolpix L110.
