Nikon Coolpix L5 Digital Camera Review

PhotoAxe
2 May 2007
  • Excerpt: The design of Coolpix L5 is different than the one of L4 or L6 and I must admit that I personally don’t like it. Its the 5x optical zoom that first catches my attention (not 3x like most of the cameras in this range). Then, the optical vibration reduction (image stabilization) brings another plus to the evaluation. Nikon’s Best Shot Selector (BSS) will select for keeping the sharpest picture out of 10 shots.

  • Excerpt: The L series of cameras from Nikon are known for their high specs at affordable prices, which kind of defines the L5—a 7.2 megapixel camera at an excellent price of Rs. 11,500. Lets find out more about it. Build To begin with, the L5 comes in a relatively slim body with a distinct bulge in the front that holds down a lens, that pops right out on when turned on. The back of the camera, as always has all the options for the scene modes, settings and the zoom/tele switch.

Nikon Coolpix L5 Digital Camera Review

Digital Camera Review
11 January 2007
  • Excerpt: If it’s true that “good things come in small packages”, the Nikon Coolpix L5 has the small part down pat.  Open the L5 box and you’ll find a camera that’s about the size of a pack of cigarettes, which makes for easy carrying options.

  • Excerpt: The Coolpix L5 ($299) is the top-end camera in Nikon's entry-level camera lineup. There's a Coolpix L6 out there, but it's not nearly as impressive as the L5, and here's why. For one, it has a big 5X lens in a body that normally would have a 3X lens. Second, it has optical image stabilization -- lens based -- so you can get sharp photos in situations with less-than-desirable light.
  • Pros: Decent photo quality (but see issues below), 5X zoom lens in a fairly compact body, Optical image stabilization, Large 2.5" LCD, Powerful flash, Redeye not a problem, Tons of scene modes; in-camera help system, Handy D-Lighting and Best Shot Selector features
  • Cons: Soft photos with fuzzy details, Since ISO is automatic, photos can be noisier than desired, No manual controls (save for white balance), Audio/video sync problem in movie mode, No AF-assist lamp; poor low light focusing, Low resolution LCD, No optical viewfinder, Exposure info not available in playback mode, Tiny amount of built-in memory, Plastic tripod mount, No USB 2.0 High Speed support

  • Summary: The Nikon Coolpix L5 compact camera has a very similar feature set to its brother, the L6, which I reviewed at the same time. Of course, the extra zoom range, resolution and the inclusion of VR technology developed for Nikon's DSLR range puts the L5 ahead of its lesser specified brother on first look. That said, the L6 impressed me in terms of its image quality, which may have partly been down to the fact that I wasn't expecting great things.
