Steve’sDigicams has recently posted a review of the Nikon Coolpix L2, a 6.0 megapixels (CCD sensor) point-and-shoot digital camera (released on 21.02.06) with 3.5x optical zoom lens (36-126mm equivalent) and a 2.0″ LCD screen.
“Image quality was pleasing for a 6-megapixel consumer model. The majority of our sample images were sharp and showed good color saturation. Outdoors, it captured nice images with proper exposure and beautiful sky detail. saw very little noise when the camera was using a lower ISO setting, but as with most consumer models, these levels will become more noticeable as the sensitivity is increased. It exhibited noticeable barrel distortion at full wide angle, but relatively no pincushioning at the telephoto end. Chromatic aberration, also known as “purple fringing”, was very well controlled, with only very slight amounts present around highlights or brightly lit subjects.”
