The latest member of the Nikon Coolpix family is the L620, a superzoom camera with a 14x lens and an 18-megapixel CMOS image sensor.
The image sensor features a BSI design, which moves circuitry behind the light-sensitive surface in order to improve image quality in lower light—its top ISO setting is 3200.
The lens starts at a 25mm f/3.3 (35mm equivalent) wide-angle setting and can zoom all the way to 350mm f/5.9.
It’s optically stabilized so that it’s feasible to use it handheld when zoomed all the way in.
The L620 is powered by two AA batteries, perfect for shooters who travel to locales where power outlets are scarce.
The rear display is 3 inches in size and packs an HVGA (460k-dot) resolution.
Video capture is supported in full 1080p HD quality and there’s an internal stereo microphone for audio acquisition.
