The Nikon Coolpix L320 is this years update to the Nikon Coolpix L310, and updates the camera with a new 16 megapixel sensor, compared to the 14 megapixel sensor on the L310.

The L320 is the entry level bridge camera from Nikon and will be available in black priced at £199.

Nikon Coolpix L320 Hands-On Photos of Equipment

The camera takes AA batteries and the 26x optical zoom lens is the equivalent of 22.5–585mm in 35mm terms, giving it an extremely wide-angle view at the wide end of the lens and to help at the telephoto end, there is built in lens based vibration reduction. The camera will provide macro focusing on subjects as close as 1cm away. Also featured is a dedicated video record button for recording movies at 720p. On the back is a 3 inch screen, although the resolution is quite low at 230k dots.

With the use of AA batteries, the number of shots possible varies with the quality of battery used, with the camera giving 310 shots using alkaline batteries, 810 shots with lithium batteries, or roughly 450 shots using the rechargeable EN-MH2 batteries. We will be reviewing the Nikon Coolpix L320 as soon as it becomes available.
