The COOLPIX L5 has surprisingly compact dimensions despite the fact it is compatible with AA-size batteries in alkaline, lithium, ZR6 oxyride, rechargeable
or other forms. And because such batteries are widely available around the world, COOLPIX L5 users can keep on shooting internationally without worrying about running out of batteries.
Adding to the convenience are three unique Nikon image innovations that make it easier to achieve great-looking results - all directly accessible via a One-touch portrait button on the
camera's top panel. Face-priority AF* can automatically detect then achieve accurate focus on people's faces, no matter where they are in the frame. In-Camera Red-Eye Fix can automatically
detect the annoying red-eye effect sometimes caused by flash and compensate for it in-camera. And the D-Lighting function can rescue underexposed images or shots with too much backlight by
creating a copy of the image but with light and detail added where necessary and well-exposed areas left exactly as they were.
A choice of 15 different Scene modes - 4 with Scene assist - automatically provides ideal settings for everything from night portraits to beach parties.
Just choose the Scene mode best suited to the subject at hand, and the COOLPIX L5 automatically selects the perfect setting for exactly the picture you had in mind. The four Scene modes
with Scene assist even help you compose the shot for optimal results.
The COOLPIX L5 is also compatible with widely available SD memory cards. And 8MB of internal memory allows you to continue shooting even when no additional
memory is available, as well as easily moving images from one SD card to another. The COOLPIX L5 offers movie recording with sound in three modes: TV size (640) for viewing on TV or
computers, convenient Small size (320), and Smaller size (160) for extended recording or Internet use.
The COOLPIX L5 even simplifies printing, with PictBridge capability enabling direct connection to compatible printers without the need of a computer in
between. USB connectivity eases transfer of data to computers and other peripherals. Complimentary PictureProject accessory software completes total convenience by greatly simplifying the
importing, editing and organizing of your images, and includes other options that add to the fun of digital photography.

Nikon COOLPIX L5 Feature Highlights
Lens shift Vibration Reduction (VR)Impressive Lens shift VR technology, initially developed for Nikon's highly respected SLR camera systems, efficiently
compensates for varying levels of camera shake, enabling sharp, clear images in active shooting situations. The new VR button conveniently located on the top panel allows a choice of three
settings: Normal, Active and Off. The Normal setting compensates for the minor and horizontal camera movement common to normal shooting and panning. The Active setting is designed to
compensate for more pronounced camera movement, or when shooting from an unsteady location such as a moving vehicle, delivering image precision comparable to shooting at shutter speeds more
than two stops faster (wide-angle as well as telephoto).
High quality from a small CCDSpace efficiency helps facilitate the compact size of the COOLPIX L5, its 1/2.5-inch CCD adding the advantage of outstandingly
high performance. Boasting an effective pixel value of 7.2 million, the CCD enables the capture of crisply focused, high-quality images that easily stand up to significant
5x zoom prowessThe COOLPIX L5's remarkably compact dimensions belie the incorporation of a powerful 38-190mm Zoom-Nikkor lens (35mm equivalent), ensuring
the expansive freedom of 5x zoom. This high-precision lens allows zooming in for tightly composed portraits, or zooming way out for expansively wide views, providing greater compositional
independence than the average compact digital camera. And revolutionary VR technology ensures no-blur images even in the telephoto range of the zoom.
Simplified features improve images in-cameraThe One-touch portrait button on the top panel provides convenient direct access to Nikon's image innovations:
Face-priority AF*, In-Camera Red-Eye Fix and D-Lighting. Face-priority AF automatically finds and then focuses in on people's faces, regardless of where they are in the frame, for
consistently crisp portraits. In-Camera Red-Eye Fix automatically corrects any accidental red-eye that can occur in flash photography, producing more natural-looking portraits. D-Lighting
allows selection of images with excessive backlight or insufficient flash illumination, automatically creating a copy of the selected image and adding light and detail wherever needed.*
Face recognition capability may be limited in some shooting conditions.
AA-size battery compatibilityDespite its compact dimensions, the COOLPIX L5 is compatible with AA-size batteries, one of the most widely available battery
sizes in the world. A battery life of approximately 490 shots with lithium, 150 shots with alkaline, or 250 shots with EN-MH1 batteries greatly augments its compact convenience.
