Nikon today announces the 16-megapixel Coolpix L320, a new super-zoom compact camera that allows you to get closer to the action than ever, thanks to a 26x extreme wide-angle optical zoom lens.
James Loader, Product Manager for Consumer Products at Nikon UK. "The Coolpix L320 is an easy to use, versatile camera that allows you to capture special moments; from family scenes to action shots. Creative photographers will enjoy shooting still images and video, and the AA batteries make this camera ideal for travelling."
With a super-zoom lens and 720p movie recording, the Coolpix L320 offers great technology that is easy-to-use to make sure memorable moments are reliably captured. Easy Auto mode optimises all settings according to the light you are in, making shooting effortless.
The NIKKOR 26x extreme wide-angle optical zoom lens with 22.5–585mm range will cover everything from sweeping vistas to distant action. Meanwhile, a 16-megapixel CCD image sensor and four different automatic anti-blur functions, along with Lens shift VR (vibration reduction) counters the effects of camera shake ensuring sharp images every time.
All this is powered by convenient AA batteries so you don’t have to worry about running out of power– whether you’re at home or travelling abroad.
