Nikon Coolpix L14 Reviews

ImagingResource reviews the Nikon Coolpix L14 and writes;
” The big feature of the Coolpix L14 is its low price but Nikon didn’t scrimp on performance, delivering above average shutter lag and startup/shutdown times. It’s also an unusually comfortable camera body to hold and pocket.”
Rating: N/A

ePhotozine reviews the Nikon Coolpix L14 and writes;
” ISO64 understandably gives a lovel, smooth result… Unfortunately, sharpening has started to happen at ISO200, but this is only visible when the image is viewed at full size. The highest ISO rating I could get was ISO384. Purple artefacts and harder sharpening are in evidence in all areas.”
Rating: ★★★☆☆

TrustedReviews reviews the Nikon Coolpix L14 and writes;
“It is well made, light and easy to handle, and fairly robust, but even a child would quickly become frustrated by its limitations. There are much better cameras costing not much more money.”
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

Pocket-Lint reviews the Nikon Coolpix L14 and writes;
“Exposure control is good though and the Face AF system works well enough but is slow, as is slight shutter lag, which will quickly frustrate you.. Easy to use with good image quality at lower ISOs the Nikon Coolpix L14 makes a good budget snapper but one that has real problems in terms of speed of use.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

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 image that is a pleasure to view, even outdoors.
