Questions? Ask our experts:

The red Nikon COOLPIX L28 Digital Camera is a compact point-and-shoot camera that features a 20.1 megapixel 1/2.3" CCD image sensor and EXPEED C2 image processor for producing high quality, well-detailed imagery. Aiding the image sensor and processor is a NIKKOR 5x optical zoom lens that spans from wide-angle to telephoto lengths (26-130mm 35mm equivalent) to suit almost any situation. Electronic Vibration Reduction image stabilization helps to maintain image sharpness when working in low-light conditions or at the longer end of the zoom range. In addition to high resolution still images, you can also record HD 720p video, which can be easily accessed via the dedicated movie button. Image review, composition, and menu navigation are done via the 3.0" 230k-dot LCD monitor.

Where this camera truly shines is through its ease of use, combining 20 Scene Modes, Scene Auto Selector, and Easy Auto Mode to allow you to focus on photographing within the moment rather than worrying about different camera settings. Also contributing to the L28's accessibility, it accepts AA batteries as a highly convenient source of power.

20.1MP Image Sensor and HD 720p Video
The 20.1 megapixel 1/2.3" CCD sensor is capable of recording high resolution imagery that is suitable for both online sharing as well as printing. Additionally, the sensor, in combination with the EXPEED C2 image processor, lends itself to producing HD 720p video at 30fps with notable clarity. Movie recording is accessible via a dedicated movie button and high fidelity sound is recorded along with the movie through the built-in microphone.
NIKKOR 5x Optical Zoom Lens and VR Image Stabilization
The integration of a genuine glass NIKKOR lens builds on the quality afforded by the imaging sensor. The 5x optical zoom provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 26-130mm, making this camera suitable for capturing almost any type of scene with ease. This lens is benefitted with the inclusion of electronic Vibration Reduction, which works to reduce the appearance of camera shake and blur that can become increasingly notable when shooting in low-light conditions or at the telephoto end of the zoom range.
Scene Modes and Easy Auto Mode
The L28 is specifically designed to allow you to focus on being in the moment and photographing rather than concentrating solely on how to photograph the moment. Easy Auto Mode will automatically control all camera settings for truly point-and-shoot functionality. More specialized in approach, Scene Auto Selector will automatically assign one of 20 different Scene Modes, including Beach, Snow, Night Portrait, Sunset, among others, to optimize certain camera settings best suit the type of scene you are photographing in. You can also select from these Scene Modes on your own, to give a more creative appearance to your imagery.
Other Camera Features
  • Highly convenient and readily available AA batteries are used to power the L28.
  • Motion Detection analyzes the movement of your subject and will automatically select faster shutter speeds and higher ISO sensitivities to better render moving subjects.
  • Smart Portrait System utilizes a series of automatic functions, including Camera Red-Eye Fix, Face Priority AF, Face Priority AE, Smile Mode, Blink Warning, Skin Softening, and D-Lighting, to produce well-exposed, clear, and detailed images of people.
  • In-camera image editing functions: Crop, D-Lighting, Skin Softening, and Small Picture.
  • Supported Languages: Arabic, Bengali, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hindi, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Marathi, Norwegian, Persian, Polish, Portuguese (European and Brazilian), Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Tamil, Telugu, Thai, Ukrainian, and Vietnamese.

    A tiny camera, very handy in any situation, fit in any pocket (yes, back one, too), tons of features, good pictures quality. The price is excellent and the delivery was outstanding (two days, free shipping, what else could you ask). I am a proud owner of several cameras, including a DSLR, 3D and video, but this one is from far the most convenient to carry and use for regular events. Great job BH!
    Thanks.

      I bought this because the camera on my note 3 just was not clear enough and my pictures were fuzzy. This camera is much clearer and better quality. The zoom works great and the color is really nice.

      I use this camera at work for various situations.

      The quality of the pictures are outstanding. And it is quick and easy to download the pictures.

      The one thing I do not like about it is the zoom feature doesn't always work the best in low light situation.

      This is my 3rd nikon Coolpix camera and I am happy overall with the quality. I had my first camera for several years, but the lens stopped working due to dust in the action. My second camera seemed to "eat" batteries at a rapid rate. My third camera seems to be operating better.

                Use it as a backup camera to my smartphone for vacations. Smartphone needs constant battery recharging. This camera uses 2 AA batteries. If they are lithiums, battery changes less frequent.
                Also good resolution images with 20 mpeg and simple to use.

                  Comments about COOLPIX L28 Digital Camera (Red):

                  I had an earlier version of the Coolpix and loved it. It had 14 MP and took great, clear pics. Also it was easy to switch it to video mode. This latest version the L28 is simply the same camera but much better. It's easier to use and has much more clarity. However I've had to relearn how to hold it because if I'm not careful it goes to video mode by my mistake. This is the King of the inexpensive point and shoot cameras. I love it.

                    Just wanted a hi-res digital that had some optical zoom so I could actually get crisp photos photos up close or at a reasonable distance. It does that just fine. There are additional features that I haven't even gotten to yet.

                      I purchased 15 of these cameras for my Yearbook Club. They are easy to use, take great pictures and the students love them.
                      We are still working on taking pictures in motion, but thats a skill hard to master.

                      Comments about COOLPIX L28 Digital Camera (Silver):

                      My expectations for cameras under $100 are limited, but I am pleased with the images the L28 produces. Focus is acceptably fast and the tonal product is better than my older Cannon point and shoot. I do not see any advantage of the 20 megapixal sensor over the more common 16 megapixal ones. I use externally rechargable batteries and they work just fine. My 11 y/o son uses this camera and finds it esy to navigate. It is now my pocket camera when my iphone is insufficient but I do not wnt to lug my big Nikon around. I am planning on moving into the 4/3 format in the near future. Mazel.
