Nikon Coolpix L610

Nikon has formally introduced the latest addition to its Coolpix line of compact cameras, a model bearing the name of Coolpix L610 and featuring a 16-megapixel sensor.

The general specifications of the product don't stand out all that much really, until the price comes into view and prospective customers realize that the L610 is a very attractive camera indeed. The sum is $249, or 201 Euro if current exchange rates are to be believed to any extent. As we said before, Nikon Coolpix L610 uses a 16 megapixel BSI (backside illuminated) CMOS sensor. Thus, it can snap photos and record videos in very high quality. For those who want specifics, Nikon actually implemented a 1080p movie mode and optical VR image stabilization. Any image focused through the 14x wide-angle zoom lens will turn out clear and smooth, unless the ones holding the camera deliberately shake it for some reason.

Naturally, there is a preview screen as well (a 3-inch liquid crystal display). What stands out more than all this, however, or at least as much, is that the Coolpix L610 does not use proprietary energy cells. Instead, it can run on the electrical power provided by standard AA batteries found at every corner shop and kiosk. No longer shall owners depend on the presence, or lack thereof, of power outlets when going on a vacation, whether it be hiking, some time at the seaside or, especially, road trips (not all trains and buses have power sockets).

All in all, this is the sort of camera we wouldn't mind buying. Even though it doesn't have the Android OS (unlike the leaked Coolpix S800/800c), it can do lots of things to photos anyway. The software can edit photos with 6 scene modes (Portrait, Landscape, Night Portrait, Night Landscape, Close-up, Backlighting), 4 special effect (Soft, High Key, Low Key, Selective Color) and 5 filters (Soft, Selective Color, Cross Screen, Miniature Effect, Painting).
