Product Description


Product Description


From the Manufacturer

The Nikon Coolpix L14 is a quality compact digital camera that combines high performance with operating ease, as well as also providing long battery life. Built on a custom application of Nikon's innovative EXPEED digital image processing concept and incorporating the precision optics of a Nikkor lens, the Coolpix L14 is built to realize optimum performance and maximum image quality.

The Coolpix L14 makes full use of its 7.1 effective megapixels, capturing true-to-life color and fine detail that leaves plenty of freedom to crop or produce enlargements. Paired with the precision optics of a 3x Zoom-Nikkor lens that covers a practical range of 38-114mm (35mm equivalent) the new model captures a range of scenes, from group shots to close-up portraits.

The Coolpix L14 offers the world's longest battery life, maximizing the power of the supplied Energizer lithium AA-size batteries. Using a standard battery size that is widely available around the world brings a great advantage in that it means never worrying about recharging or running out of power. Better still, the energy efficient design of the Coolpix L14 allows it to shoot 1,000 photos on a pair of Energizer lithium AA-size batteries. (The Coolpix L14 offers best battery performance in 3x zoom compact class as of August 30, 2007, according to research conducted by Nikon Corporation. Takes approximately 1,000 shots with supplied Energizer lithium, 440 shots with alkaline or 520 shots with EN-MH1 batteries [based on CIPA standard].)

Intuitive operation and user-friendly controls ensure error-free command over the performance features of the Coolpix L14. Dedicated buttons on the top of the body make it easy to switch between shooting and playback modes. The large 2.4-inch LCD monitor offers a bright, easy-to-view image, even when outdoors.

Nikon Coolpix L14 Feature Highlights

New Easy Auto mode and scene modes for carefree shooting
Easy Auto mode makes it easier to turn on the camera and shoot without worrying about settings. Easy access to 15 different scene modes and five movie modes also ensures shooting that is tuned to give the best results to match the moment.

Three Unique Nikon Image Innovations
The Coolpix L14 features a selection of three innovative functions that allows the photographer to improve the quality of images within the camera. Face-priority AF automatically finds, then focuses on a face for crisp, clear results time after time. (Face recognition capability may be limited in some shooting conditions.) In-Camera Red-Eye Fix automatically compensates to help eradicate traces of the annoying red-eye effect that can sometimes be encountered during flash photography. And D-Lighting can be applied to improve underexposed images or shots taken with too much backlight. D-Lighting automatically creates a copy of the image with detail added where necessary, but with well-exposed areas left completely untouched.

Stop-motion animation for more creative fun
Stop-motion makes it easy to create animated films within the camera. Users can shoot models, move them, shoot them again and, when done, have the camera process the images to deliver professional-looking results using the timing of preference.

ISO 1000 capability for better pictures in lower light
Making it easier to take great-looking pictures in lower lighting conditions, or to capture fast-moving subjects with outstanding clarity, the Coolpix L14 accurately measures available light to automatically select the optimal sensitivity setting for the shot between the range of ISO 64 to as high as ISO 1000.

Other Features
  • Light weight with highly compact dimensions Macro shooting from as close as 10 centimeters (3.9 inches)
  • 4x digital zoom extends compositional freedom
  • Improved Graphical User Interface (GUI)
  • Improved menu interface, available in a choice of 23 languages
  • Time zone function for easy setting of multiple locations
  • Energizer lithium AA-size batteries included
  • Approximately 23MB of internal memory

Color: Blue
I've been toying with the idea of getting a digital for years but I wasn't sold on the picture quality, (without spending a great deal of money) and I'm frankly a film snob. I have a vintage Fuji SLR and a Canon Photura which both produce great shots but are cumbersome to chase the kids around with. I wanted something easy to set, with minimal buttons so my kids could use it as well, but with a quality worth printing at least a 5x7 with. The specs are well detailed in the description so I'll just go general. I found the camera very intuitive. I haven't looked at the manual but all the modes are easy to figure out by the 'press a button and see what happens' method. Editing on the fly is quick and easy, the video I took looks as good as a minidv tape, the pictures blow up well. It fits in my front jean pocket or in a small matching Samsonite hardcase I found for $4. With a 2 GB card I can do 30 minutes of video or about a thousand pictures. This camera is advertised as long life batteries and so far I've done about 200 photos and 15 minutes of video on the supplied batteries. One negative is the shutter time - when using flash mode it is s-l-o-w. You can't catch something quickly, you're going to get three or five seconds after you think you are. However, turning the flash off made this shutter as fast as my Photura, (if not as fast as my SLR) but still had a lag time between shots. It's a trade I can live with since the multiple exposure settings make it easy to compensate for not using the flash. The design is excellent. I'm left handed and a lot of things designed for one handed use annoy me by placing buttons where a left handed user will hit the wrong ones. Although there are three buttons on the top of the camera, I had no problem at all with this.Read more ›

Color: Blue Verified Purchase
After reading glowing reviews of the L10, L11, and L12, I noticed that that Nikon has released the L14 and 15. Presumably, they were very similar to the previous models, but hey, they used a NEW processor, and new is better, right? And look, they come in cool colors! I like the blue! So I ordered one and was quite disappointed. Comparing my photos to the many L10,11,12 sample photos available on the websites, the photos from this camera have much more pronounced noise indoors. This is due to the camera choosing a high ISO setting, and you cannot control it. The photos from this camera have strange defects, like a fringe, that comes off high contrast subjects. Example: I took an outdoor photo which included a Panera Bread sign, white letters with thick black outline. The white center of the letters was washing off into the black outline. This is not noticable in the center of the picture, but anywhere outside the central 1/3, it gets worse, and is worst at the edges and of course the corners. As a result of this, the whole photo has a slightly out of focus quality to it. The clincher for me was when I did a side by side shoot-off between my 5 yr old 3MP Canon compact and this New Nikon L14 7MP. The Old Canon won! I returned the L14. I really liked the blue.
Dec 7 update: Just received the L12 I ordered as a replacement. A world of difference! Sharp edges, no fringe or smearing, less pixel noise, focus acceptable out to the edges. In my opinion, Nikon ruined a good thing with the L14.

Color: Silver

I purchased this camera 2 weeks ago. I was very skeptic about it but i gave nikon another try.
I had an old 2.5MP from nikon I loved, so i bought the Nikon L1 and hated it to death it was garbage - slow, worthless video and so on.
I returned it and purchased the canon with was nice but i still missed the old nikon.
After going back and forth i decided i give nikon another try - i love it !

The Nikon is quick even with Flash but you need to know which setting you need for what type of pictures.
I work in a daycare and tokk pictures of kids today i caught them in the position i pressed the shutter...awesome.
Took a picture of my daughter playing with water and you can even see the single water drops when she splashed.
the macro is awesome - you can see every single detail

It has a little shutter lag when you take pictures in low light
also when you just to far away and the object is moving. but thats ok.
you can however adjust this yourself and yes after reading the manual you can take awesome pics and FAST !!!

The video quality is like TV or DVD...i have an samsung camcorder 8mm tape and the nikon takes better quality video..and my camcorder is only 2 years old.

You can use up to 4GB SD Cards and the battery life is long.
I took at least 1 hour of Video and maked the rest of my 4GB out with Pictures and I am still on the Batteries that came with the camera...

If you just want to take some camera out of the box and shoot
this might not be the one but if you dont mind going through the manual for 30 min, so you know what you doing you will get rewarded with
awesome pictures, awesome video and of course a reliable brand with little costs.

Color: Blue
I'll start by saying that this is a GREAT, maximum bang-per-buck 'point-and-shoot' compact digital camera. I conducted a LOT of research before I decided on the 'Coolpix L14', and it is one of my best purchases ever. I've been using an old Fujifilm 'Finepix 2650' (2 megapixel) for a few years now, and it's served me well. I wanted a more compact, simple to use and intuitive brand-name (like Nikon, Canon, Sony, etc.) digital cam that took high quality pictures in 'auto mode', and still had some advanced features and options that I could use in a 'manual mode' for even more control of the shot. I also wanted a camera that would use both 'AA' batteries, and high-capacity rechargeable 'AA' batteries, if I so choose. This camera takes both, and the batteries last a lot longer than many other cameras that I researched (Nikon claims about 1,000 shots with 'Energizer e2' lithium batteries), owned, or borrowed. The LCD screen looks sharp and crisp as well, and I like the 'face finding' and 'red eye fix' technology too, and they both work quite well. In addition, I tested it's video abilities as well, and the audio/video look and sound seamless, although you really need to get a 2GB card to get any meaningful length video out of this cam. The pic transfer software also works perfectly with my Windows XP PC, with no glitches. In summation, for the price, this cam is a truly GREAT buy, and it looks GORGEOUS in blue too (classy, expensive look)! Hope this review is helpful.
