The red COOLPIX L30 Digital Camera from Nikon is a compact point-and-shoot camera that features a 20.1 MP 1/2.3" CCD image sensor. A Nikkor 5x optical zoom lens covers a 35mm equivalent focal length of 26-130mm, making the lens suitable for wide-angle photos as well as telephoto zoom lengths, covering most situations. Electronic Vibration Reduction 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.

The COOLPIX L30 makes shooting high quality images easy by offering 19 scene modes, as well as an Easy Auto Mode. This allows you to focus on composing your photograph, rather than worrying about the settings. The camera is powered by two AA batteries.

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 lends itself to producing HD 720p video at 30 fps. Movie recording is accessible via a dedicated movie button.
Nikkor 5x Optical Zoom Lens and Electronic Vibration Reduction
The integration of a Nikkor lens builds on the quality offered 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 benefits from the inclusion of electronic Vibration Reduction for stills and videos, 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. Additionally, a Motion Detection feature makes necessary changes to settings when shooting still images of moving objects.
Scene Modes and Easy Auto Mode
The L30 is specifically designed to allow you to shoot with ease, and concentrate on taking the photo or video, rather than on changing your camera settings. Easy Auto Mode will automatically control all camera settings for true point-and-shoot functionality. For a more specialized approach, you can choose from one of 19 different Scene Modes, including Beach, Snow, Night Portrait, Sunset, among others, to optimize certain camera settings that best suit the type of scene you are photographing.
In Camera Image Editing
There are 7 different built-in editing tools to give you extra creative control right from your camera:
  • D-Lighting restores shadow and highlight detail
  • Quick Retouch adds a balance of contrast and saturation to your image
  • Small Picture saves a small resized photo
  • Filter Effects add creative effects to your images
  • Glamour Retouch
  • Red-Eye Reduction
  • Crop
  • Smart Portrait System
    With the Smart Portrait System activated, there are a number of features that help you get the best shots. Face Priority AF finds and focuses on faces, and Skin Softening applies a soft focus effect. The camera can also be set to take a photo as soon as someone smiles.

    is an extended warranty available (1 or 2 years) ?? Thank You.
    Asked by: larry s.
    There are protection plans that you can purchase. When you add the camera to a cart those plans come up. If you already purchased this from B&H you have thirty days from the purchase to order a protection plan.They come in 2 year drop and spills, 3 year drop and spills and 3 year protection.The last one is like the one it comes with which is for defects and the other two are for that and drops and spills.These plans are from a company called SquareTrade.

    question

    Are there any reviews on this camera? Would you be able to tell me about the battery life? ( Such as, how many shots per 2 AA battery life?)
    Asked by: Anonymous
    The battery life for the Nikon COOLPIX L30 will largely depend on the type of batteries being used. For standard, non-rechargeable AA batteries, the camera is rated at 320 shots; for EN-MH2 batteries, the battery life is 570 shots, and with lithium ion AA batteries, you can expect around 950 shots.
