Nikon Adds 14x Coolpix L620 Long-Zoom Point & Shoot


Melville, NY—Nikon Inc. introduced the Coolpix L620 with a 14x optical zoom lens that users can take advantage of while recording Full HD video.

Nikon says this new 18.1 megapixel compact camera is designed with user-friendly features, such as scene modes, easy auto mode, special effects and target-finding AF, as well as Full HD video recording at the touch of a dedicated button.

“The comfortable ergonomics and thoughtfully placed controls of the Coolpix L620 make it easy to capture amazing memories, from a baby’s first steps to a big hit at a little league baseball game,” said Bo Kajiwara, vice president, Marketing, Planning and Customer Experience, Nikon Inc. “The Coolpix L620 also includes many user-friendly features and controls to help consumers capture beautiful photos and videos with ease and confidence.”

The camera body of the L620 is laid out specifically for users who seek simplicity with the capabilities of a long zoom lens. Its 14x optical zoom Nikkor glass lens covers an equivalent focal length of 25mm to 350mm, making the L620 suitable for taking on vacation as well as for instances that require shooting at a distance. For added stability, the integrated grip provides extra support when shooting or composing on the camera’s HVGA 3.0-inch LCD monitor.

In addition, the camera is built to perform in low-light conditions, via lens-shift VR (vibration reduction) image stabilization and an ISO range up to 3200. Other features include: one-touch Full HD video recording with stereo sound; scene modes and easy auto mode, which enable users to enhance photos with options like red-eye fix and face-priority AF; special effects that include quick retouch, filter effects and skin softening for more flattering portraits; and the use of readily available AA batteries.

The Nikon Coolpix L620 will be available in September for a suggested retail price (SRP) of $249.95. It will be offered in a choice of black or red.
