    Nikon Coolpix L15 Digital Camera - Press Release

    Outstanding photographic performance and operating ease that make it more fun to take beautiful photograph

    TOKYO – Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the introduction of the COOLPIX L15, a quality compact digital camera that combines high performance with operating ease and the support of advanced features, including optical lens shift VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization. Built on a custom application of Nikon's innovative EXPEED digital image processing concept and incorporating the precision optics of a NIKKOR lens, The COOLPIX L15 is built to realize optimum performance and maximum image quality.

    Offering the full imaging potential of 8.0 effective megapixels, the COOLPIX L15 captures true-to-life color with enough fine details to leave plenty of creative freedom to crop or produce beautiful enlargements. This pairs with the precision optics of a 3x Zoom-NIKKOR lens that covers the highly practical range of 35-105mm (35mm equivalent) to ably capture everything from panoramic vistas to close-up portraits.

    Optical lens shift VR image stabilization counteracts the effects of camera shake in lower light or when shooting unsteady subjects to help achieve sharper results. Active full time, VR also stabilizes images displayed on the 2.8-inch high-resolution LCD monitor for easier framing and more reassured shooting.

    Intuitive operation and dedicated controls ensure faultless command over the performance features of the COOLPIX L15. This includes the dedicated buttons on the top of the body for switching between shooting and playback modes. The expansive 2.8-inch high-resolution LCD monitor offers a bright and large image that makes it a pleasure to view, even out in the sun. And the no-nonsense design of the body itself assures a solid grip while pleasing the eyes with an inviting balance of flowing surfaces contrasted by sharp edge lines. The COOLPIX L15 will be available in three body colors*: Silver, Black and Pink.

    *Color availability may vary according to region.

    Note: Specifications, design, product name, standard accessories, and release schedule may differ by country or area.

    Nikon COOLPIX L15 Feature Highlights

    Proven optical lens shift VR image stabilization
    Field proven technology originally developed for interchangeable lenses used in Nikon SLR camera systems, optical lens shift VR image stabilization provides the ability to shoot at shutter speeds as much as three steps slower without blurring the image, while also realizing a smoother image when shooting.

    New Easy Auto mode and scene modes for carefree shooting
    Easy Auto mode makes it easier to turn on the camera and shoot without worrying about settings. Easy access to 15 different scene modes and three movie modes also ensures shooting that is tuned to give the best results to match the moment.

    Three Unique Nikon Image Innovations
    The COOLPIX L15 features a selection of three innovative functions that provide the ability to actually improve the quality of images within the camera. Face-priority AF* automatically finds, then focuses on people’s faces for crisp, clear results time after time. In-Camera Red-Eye Fix automatically compensates to help eradicate traces of the annoying red-eye effect that can sometimes be encountered during flash photography. And D-Lighting can be applied to improve underexposed images or shots taken with too much backlight. D-Lighting automatically creates a copy of the image with detail added where necessary, but with well-exposed areas left completely untouched.
    * Face recognition capability may be limited in some shooting conditions.

    AA-size batteries for carefree shooting, anywhere
    The COOLPIX L15 runs on AA-size batteries, a standard battery size available in virtually every corner of the world. This means carefree shooting anywhere, free of any worries about running out of power or needing to recharge when that special shutter chance arises.

    ISO 1000 capability for better pictures in lower light
    Making it easier to take great-looking pictures in lower lighting conditions, or to capture fast moving subjects with outstanding clarity, the COOLPIX L15 accurately measures available light to automatically select the optimal sensitivity setting for the shot between the range of ISO 64 to as high as ISO 1000.

    • Light weight with highly compact dimensions
