Nikon Coolpix L10 digital camera : Nikon’s Coolpix range has proved extremely popular with both amateurs and professionals with the ability to capture images easily with a stylish and compact camera. The Nikon Coolpix L10 is the latest addition to this range, combining a range of features that justify Nikon’s reputation as the pioneer of state-of-the-art camera technology. Within the stylish and compact body of the Coolpix L10, Nikon has packed in a range of exciting features to achieve optimum results in a variety of challenging conditions. The Coolpix L10 guarantees image quality with a resolution of 5.0 megapixels, as well as light sensitivity of up to ISO 800. Sales of the Nikon L10 digital camera start end of February.|

The light sensitivity of up to ISO 800 makes it possible to produce quality shots in low light conditions without using lower exposure. These features also ensure that the user is able to capture fast-moving objects without blurring or loss of detail.
In-camera image manipulation
Three unique Nikon innovations make it possible to manipulate the images in-camera, enabling hobbyist photographers to achieve excellent results. Face-priority AF detects people’s faces to achieve sharp focus no matter where they happen to be located in the frame; In-Camera Red-Eye Fix tackles this effect by providing automatic compensation for more flattering, natural-looking portraits in low light. Finally, Nikon’s unique D-Lighting function, available in playback mode, improves underexposed images or shots taken with too much back light by creating a copy of an image with added light and detail wherever necessary, leaving well-exposed areas untouched.
Nikon Coolpix L10 camera - LCD screen
Ample LCD screen of 2.0-inch on the Coolpix L10 allows the user to view their results immediately with friends gathered around. Nikon’s exclusive PictureProject software also makes it easy to edit, organise, transfer and share the images taken with this new Nikon camera.
Nikon Coolpix L10 - Compatible with AA batteries
Unlike many compact digital cameras on the market the Coolpix L10 is compatible with AA-size batteries. Thanks to this advantage, users never have to worry about recharging their batteries or running out of power at an unfortunate moment. They can simply pick up a new set of batteries no matter where they are in the world and keep on shooting without worry.
Nikon Coolpix L10 - High quality design
With the Nikon Coolpix L10, the high quality of the images is complemented by superior body design. Slim and compact, the camera fits comfortably in the hand to promote natural, yet steady shooting, while the lens retracts when not in use to make both cameras even more compact for carrying. What’s more, they are also available in a range of attractive colours.
