  • Excerpt: Nikon is in a race for the point & shoot digital camera crown, an honor it once owned for years after the release of the legendary Coolpix 900 series in 1996. Oh those were the days. Now there are upwards of ten competing models from a dozen manufacturers at almost every single price point. With ten distinct price points, that amounts to a lot of consumer choices.
  • Pros: A fast lens (f2.8 at the wide end of the zoom) coupled with a sensor that produces a good color balance works well in some indoor and other low light conditions that sometimes stump competing models. Built-in flash works surprisingly well for such a diminutive thing, producing good exposures in mixed lighting conditions. The L12 is easy to handle and the gently curved right side provides a reasonably secure grip whether shooting horizontal or vertical. The user interf...
  • Cons: At this price it's really hard to ask for more, but we could wish for a higher resolution LCD. While the LCD is certainly big enough, reviewing photos using the camera is less than satisfying. The zoom range is somewhat limited—to be expected in this price range—so we'd prefer to have a wider angle at the short end even if it means giving up a few millimeters at the long end.

Nikon Coolpix L12 Review

Digital Camera Review
23 May 2007
  • Excerpt: Nikon’s “L” series digicams bear a striking resemblance (in both form and function) to Canon’s “A” series digital cameras, and there’s nothing wrong with that - imitation is, after all, the sincerest form of flattery.  Canon’s “A” series digicams are justly famous for their practicality, flexibility, class leading performance, reasonable pricing, impressive build-quality, and amazing ease of use.

  • Summary: Nikon Coolpix L12 je malý kompakt s optickou stabilizací obrazu, řadou automatických funkcí a automatickým ovládáním. Manuálně nastavitelných voleb není mnoho. Jaké snímky s tímto fotoaparátem nafotíte se dočtete v následujícím testu.
