Nikon Coolpix L30 Black - Expert Reviews

Overall Review

Nikon Coolpix L30 has come as a follow up to its predecessor, L28 and possesses a redesigned body with not much of consideration. It comes with a 20.1MP CCD image sensor and an optical zoom lens of up to 5x wherein, the zoom length range begins from 26mm wide angle to 130mm moderate telephoto. At the wide-angle end, f/3.2 max aperture is rather dim and at the telephoto end of f/6.5, dimness falls. The camera does not come with true vibration reduction but electronic vibration reduction, for here simply the ISO sensitivity has been raised to gain high shutter speed. The ISO range is from 80 to 1600. The camera exploits metering for different kinds of exposures, until digital zoom comes in to action. The burst mode comes with 1.1fps for 6 frames. The user gets to frame and review the images on a 3 inches LCD monitor with a 230k dot resolution wherein, its brightness can be adjusted in five levels and there is an anti-reflection coating given to it.

Under incandescent lights, the performance of both - Auto White Balance, AWB and presets perform well and provide almost similar images. Under fluorescent lights though, AWB wins, the preset though picks up image with magenta tinge. The smart portrait system allows for decent portraits. You can also use Glamor Retouch for navigating through the playback menu. In scene or program modes, the exposure compensation is handled automatically. The scene selection types are Sunset, Sports, Snow, Back Light, Beach, Museum Black and White Copy, Close Up, Dusk/Dawn, Food, Fireworks, Portrait, Show, Night Landscape, Night Portrait, Party/Indoor and Pet Portrait. There is no panorama assist mode however, there is the Glamor Retouch mode that softens the tones of skin and lightens darkness under the skin. Although, the inbuilt memory of Nikon Coolpix L30 is of 25MB, you would have to rely on Secure Digital Card slot compatible to SDXC/SDHC to save your clips and frames.

Coming to the videos, the user will be able to shoot high-definition video with Nikon Coolpix L30 at 720p HD resolution. The frame size will be of 1280 x 720 pixels and the frame rate for the videos to be shot will be 30 fps. A lower resolution is VGA, 640 x 480 pixels and QVGA, 320 x 240 pixelsd. A new voice function has been added to save audio in WAV format. The power of the camera is drawn from two standard AA batteries and the connectivity options include USB and standard definition composite NTSC/PAL video. AA batteries can give away 280 to 320 shots as per CIPA standards.

Design and Build Quality

Nikon Coolpix L30 comes clad in plastic and shows a bulge to the side where AA batteries are located. At the top of the camera, you have the off/on button, shutter release and a zoom rocker. At the rear, there are buttons that include menu, playback, movie record, delete, mode and playback. The Dpad lets you work on menu.

Focus and Face Detection

Nikon Coolpix L30 comes with two focusing modes; face detection and centre. The minimum focusing distance is of 10cm, not quite great to achieve macro shots and is where you would have to make a compromise.

Lens and Image Stabilization

The detail generated by the lens of Nikon Coolpix L30 is OK at the centre of the images but not as good when seen at the corners and edges. In areas with contrasting display, purple fringing doesn't pose a threat. The minimum focusing distance is of 10cm and makes it not so easy to achieve the desirable macro shots. The maximum aperture is of f/3.2 to f/6.5 and the 35mm lens equivalence is of 26mm-130mm (zoom length). The optical zoom can be extended up to 5 levels with a digital Image stabilization feature.

Screen and Menus

In Nikon Coolpix L30, the LCD monitor present at the back is of 3 inches wide with a screen resolution of 230k dots. The menu system is easier to browse and the ISO feature cannot be altered manually. D-Pad can be used to navigate through the menus to attain quick access to flash, macro, self-timer and exposure compensation.


Nikon Coolpix L30 has a battery life that is rated at 320 shot counts as per the CIPA testing standards. If one uses EN-MH2 batteries, 570 shots can be achieved and should Li-AA batteries are used, 380 shots more to the count is possible.

Video Mode

Nikon Coolpix L30 records fine quality video in 720p High-Definition resolution. The videos are recorded in digital zoom as there is no optical zoom available. The video frame size remains at 1280 x 720 pixels and the frame rates at which video gets recorded is 30fps. Though audio does not get recorded in the stereo format.


Nikon Coolpix L30 comes with a 20 megapixels CCD sensor. where the size of the sensor is of 1/2.3 inches and the aspect ratio -  4:3 and 16:9. The ISO sensitivity ranges from 80 to 1600. At ISO levels of 80, 100 and 200, the noise observed is low. At ISO 400, the images get softer and at ISO 800, the image quality softens down. At ISO 1600, though the detail is lost, the quality of the reproduction isn't that bad.


  • Easier to handle
  • Battery life is impressive
  • Screen is better than its contemporaries
  • Color reproduction is rich and images produced are decent


  • Doesn't have as many features as you would expect from today's digicam
  • Minimum focusing distance is 10cm
  • No optical image stabilization is offered
  • Screen resolution is quite low

Good specs on a budget camera
by Nikhil Silveira on 2012-05-06

The reason I went for this was specs in the sub 4k price range. It's a good replacement for my phone cam which obviously has too much of a shutter lag to be of much practical use.
