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).

  • Summary: The COOLPIX L5 is a compact and user-friendly camera for the family snap-shooter that wants a capable, well-featured camera at an affordable price. The L5 has 7.2 megapixels for generating superior quality prints, a 5x zoom lens for creative compositional freedom, an incredible, bright 2.5-inch LCD...

Digital Camera Review
11 January 2007
  • Summary: 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.
  • Pros: Compact size/light weight, 7 megapixel sensor, Optical image stabilization, 5X optical zoom, D-Lighting photo correction tool, In-camera red-eye correction
  • Cons: Images could be sharper out of camera, Battery life marginal with alkalines, Red colors slightly shifted toward orange, Barrel distortion at wide end of telephoto can impact images

  • 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.
  • 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 pl...

  • Summary: Vi havde forventet os mere af billedkvaliteten på dette kamera. Mest problematisk var kameraets tendens til at overeksponere, uskarpe billedkanter og for meget billedstøj ved ISO 400. Ligeledes er detaljegengivelsen også set bedre.
  • Pros: Udløserforsinkelse uden blitz næppe mærkbar i praksis., Effektiv rødøjereduktion, deligthing og optisk billedstabilisator, best shot selector og ansigtsprioriteter Af, God og sikker eksponering under de fleste forhold, Gode ved ISO 80-200, Acceptabel centrumskarphed, Tilpas mættet farvegengivelse...
  • Cons: Hastighed under gennemsnittet på alle områder, Gennemsnitlig funktionalitet i øvrigt, Overeksponerer på vort standard testmotiv kræver overstyring fra fotografen for ikke at ødelægge billedet., Ikke god ved ISO 400 - en del konkurrenter er bedre på høj ISO, Tydeligt kantuskarpe billeder, Tydeligt...
