The L27 - Making memories last
Attractive, sturdy and easy to use, the 16-megapixel L27 is clever with photos and movies - so you don’t have to be. Simple controls and smart automatic functions deliver steady images, and ensure you capture portraits with smiling faces and open eyes.
A NIKKOR wide-angle 5x optical zoom lens (26–130mm) captures everything from group shots to close-ups with superb precision and sharp resolution. When you want to remember even more of the moment, crisp HD (720p) video recording is available at the touch of a button, and photos and movies are played back just as you remember them on a quality 6.7-cm (2.7-in.) LCD monitor.
Easy Auto Mode optimizes all camera settings depending on what light you are in, ensuring your images are always impressive. Built-in Motion Blur Reduction reduces the effect of camera shake, and the Smart Portrait System includes features such as Smile Timer and Skin Softening, to ensure subjects always look their best. Powered by convenient AA-size batteries, the L27 is perfect for taking anywhere.
The COOLPIX L27 comes in five colours: purple with lineart decoration (Exclusive to Argos), black, red, silver and white.
The L28 – Focusing on the important things in life
The COOLPIX L28 is another stunningly easy-to-use camera that makes snapping photos and shooting movies a delight. With 20 megapixels, a NIKKOR wide-angle 5x optical zoom lens, a 7.5-cm (3.0-in.) LCD monitor and HD (720p) video recording, it has everything needed to capture the important things in life.
Easy Auto Mode and one-touch video recording keep things simple, while the high megapixel count and sharp NIKKOR 5x optical zoom lens make sure everything is captured perfectly, from a close-up photo of a new addition to the family, to a movie of the whole family at play. Photos look great when played back on the large LCD monitor, and are so crisp they make excellent enlargements worthy of hanging on the wall. The L28 is powered by convenient AA batteries.
The COOLPIX L28 comes in four colours: pink, red, silver and black.
