Review: Nikon Coolpix L110

Just acquired a Nikon Coolpix L110 two weeks ago from Kim Lato. The Coolpix L110 is not a DSLR, but it’s body is similar to one. Actually, this camera falls under the category of a compact digital, and others say of a “super zoom”.

Two factors made us decide to acquire the Nikon Coolpix L110 on top of the competitor’s super zooms (that of Panasonic’s and Sony’s) — value for money and it’s 15x wide optical zoom.

The listed price of the Nikon Coolpix L110 (black) at Kimstore is PHP13,000 but when we checked at SM Appliance Center, it’s on order basis with a tag of PHP28,000. Kimstore wins!

Now, on to the review proper …

The Nikon Coolpix L110 is easy to use — it’s like you’re just using a point-and-shoot (actually, it’s a point-and-shoot camera). There is an AUTO setting, so as not to complicate your life with the settings, especially if you are just new to photography and if you’re not a professional. It has an effective pixel count of 12.1 million pixels, and is sporting a 15x optical zoom NIKKOR lens that can give you a super-telephoto 420mm coverage from as close as 28mm. Macro shooting can be as close as 1cm or 0.4 of an inch.

Another best thing with the Nikon Coolpix L110 is that it uses four (04) AA batteries. No worries if you are on the road and ran out of battery charge, you can always get an Energizer AA (Ultimate Lithium recommend, based on the manual) off the shelf. Based on the manual, using Energizer Ultimate Lithium AA batteries will last up to 840 shots or roughly 7 hours of HD movies.

Yes, you read that right — HD movies. The Nikon Coolpix L110 is capable of shooting HD (720p) quality video with stereo sound.

If you’re a semi-pro or a learned person when it comes to photography, the Nikon Coolpix L110 supports sensitivity of up to ISO 6400. This is the first in the L-Series Camera line to offer a new vibration reduction that combines the image-sensor shift system with electronic vibration reduction to help prevent or reduce blur caused by camera shake and subject movement.

The only thing missing in the Nikon Coolpix L110 is a viewfinder, else it’s the best consumer digital camera for me.

My rating for the Nikon Coolpix L110: 9 out 10.

This time, let’s try the 15x optical zoom:

Using the 15x zoom, I can clearly see the tail number (registration) of this chopper:
