NIKON'S NEW L SERIES CAMERAS: MEMORIES MADE EASY & AFFORDABLEQuality Compact Digital Cameras Combine Excellent Performance with Easy-to-Use Features.
"Nikon's new L-series cameras represent an exceptional value to the consumer, as they are full-featured, easy-to-use and affordable," says Bill Giordano, General Manager Marketing, COOLPIX for Nikon Inc. "With the introduction of these L-Series cameras, Nikon is making it extremely easy for consumers, who might be new to digital photography, to capture great pictures easily, right out of the box."
COOLPIX L10 & L11
Designed for the entry-level digital photographer, the L10 and L11 boast 5.0 megapixels and 6.0 megapixels respectively, allowing the consumer to generate high-quality prints in a variety of sizes. Each camera features a sharp 3x Zoom- Nikkor glass lens, ensuring creative freedom and a high light sensitivity up to ISO 800, which makes it easy to produce better pictures in low light situations. Both cameras feature large LCD monitors which facilitate the composition and sharing of images; the L10's LCD measures 2.0 inches across while the L11 has a 2.4-inch LCD, ample dimensions for easily viewing and sharing images with friends and family.
In addition to 7.1 megapixels, a 3x optical Zoom-Nikkor glass lens, and a 2.5-inch LCD, the COOLPIX L12 also features Optical VR Image Stabilization, which overcomes camera shake to produce clearer, sharper images. This camera also has ISO capabilities up to 1600, which enables the consumer to take sharper pictures in low light situations and facilitates a faster shutter speed, essential for capturing images of fast-moving subjects. Adding to this camera's ease of use is a new Anti-Shake button, which simultaneously activates VR, High ISO and Best Shot Selector, assuring that pictures will be steady, sharp, and stunning.
Memories Made Easy
In addition to the camera-specific features listed above, Nikon has incorporated user-friendly Imaging Innovations into the entire line of COOLPIX cameras, designed to ease the picture-taking process for the consumer. On the L12, these features are activated by pressing the convenient One-Touch portrait button on top of the camera and can be easily located in the menu systems of the L10 and L11. These technologies, dubbed "Nikon In-Camera Innovations" include:
The COOLPIX L10, L11 and L12 feature a sleek, stylish finish and a curved grip that contributes to both design elegance and shooting stability. Adding to the cameras’ convenient portability, all of L-series models are AA-size battery and SDHC memory card compatible, with 7MB of internal memory for the L10 and L11 and 21MB for the L12. Each camera is packaged with a complimentary copy of Nikon’s PictureProject Software, which makes it a snap to transfer, organize, edit, and share photos with family and friends.
The COOLPIX L10, L11 and L12 will be available beginning March 2007 at an MSRP of .95, .95, and .95, respectively. For more information about the L-series cameras and other COOLPIX cameras, please visit www.nikondigital.com.
