Product information

Focus on the important things in life with the easy-to-use 20-megapixel Coolpix L30. Easy Auto mode and one-touch video recording make snapping photos and shooting movies a delight. From close-up photos of little ones to movies of the family at play, the high megapixel count and sharp NIKKOR 5x optical zoom lens deliver clear images every time.

Wide angle lens
From group shots to close-ups, the wide-angle 26-130mm lens lets you capture special moments and facial expressions with ease.

3” screen
Frame your photos easily and enjoy viewing them in playback with the large 3-inch LCD monitor, giving you crisp viewing even in bright sunlight.

20MP sensor

Less blur
You’ll always get sharp shots with Motion Blur Reduction compensating for camera and subject movement, even with fast-moving subjects.

Beautiful portraits
Snap perfect portraits every time. Smile Timer takes the shot when your subject smiles, Blink Proof alerts you if someone’s eyes were closed, and Red-Eye Fix corrects false eye colour due to flash.

L30 Coolpix Very easy to use this camera with extremely good quality pictures would recomend 16 December 2014
A great little camera. For the price it is a very good camera, it does what it says, small enough for your pocket, and very good prints. 01 October 2014
Great camera I had AGFA camera previously and never really got on with it. Just got back from holiday and using it for first time. Really easy to use and user friendly and good pictures. I know it shouldn't make any difference but it looks really cool! 25 August 2014
Basic camera Perfectly adequate camera with a limited zoom, good enough for an amateur photographer to take snaps 29 April 2014
Does what it says on the tin Having had two similar but much more expensive compact cameras and them lasting only 6 years between them, I thought I would happily settle on this not so expensive and cheerful (mine is red) camera. JL at Cribbs had run out of stock, so they kindly ordered one online for me which arrived the next day, at Clifton Waitrose. Super JL service, as usual. OK, it's not a cutting edge product but at this price I think it's super for a beginner, quick-aim-and-shooter, and anyone who has a more serious camera and would like to keep it for more serious and cutting edge photography. I will keep my other two (my 34 year old Cannon AE1 SLR and Fuji fine pix) for such serious jobs and this red number for everyday use! 27 April 2014
