I believe that I'll enjoy this camera immensely. Plan to take a lot of pictures. This is a definite upgrade of my present digital camera and I love the short video feature. Beware of grandmothers with easy to use digital cameras!

Product Overview

The Nikon Coolpix L5 offers extreme user-friendly operation without compromising quality of the end-product. A generous 7.2-megapixel sensor produces images with great picture clarity, which can be fully appreciated on the bright 2.5-inch LCD with backlight. The powerful 38-190mm Zoom-Nikkor lens (35mm equivalent) ensures matchless compositional freedom, from zooming in for intimate personal portraits to zooming out for expansive outdoor scenes. Lens-shift Vibration Reduction (VR) technology allows the user to make the most of 5x zooming. While the dimensions of the L5 are surprisingly compact, it is compatible with the universally available AA size batteries.

The Coolpix L5 makes it simple to get great-looking results in challenging situations. Three unique in-camera Nikon image innovations adjust the image, detecting and correcting imperfections: Face Priority AF automatically detects and achieves sharp focus on people's faces wherever they are in the frame; In-Camera Red-Eye Fix automatically overcomes the red-eye effect sometimes caused by flash; and D-Lighting makes it possible to rescue underexposed images or shots taken with too much back-light. (Face recognition capability may be limited in some shooting conditions.)

In fact, the Coolpix L5 makes it so easy to capture high-quality images in any situation that any amateur can create images that Rankin would be proud of. The user simply selects one of 15 different scene modes which most resembles the subject at hand, and the camera will automatically adjust its settings to optimize on the current conditions. Coolpix L5, offers movie recording with sound in three modes--one standard, one large for TV, one small for the internet or extended recording.

Nikon further justify their reputation for user-friendliness with the PictBridge capability, which enables direct connection to compatible printers without the need for a computer. Complementary PictureProject software simplifies the importing, editing, and organization of your images. The Coolpix L5 model is an excellent choice for the entry-level photographer, producing rewarding images from the first click.
