Nikon Coolpix L1 6.2MP Digital Camera

If you are looking for an entry level camera, is the L1 a good choice? The camera has it’s share of problems, but does the great picture quality make up for it’s other issues?

To compare photo quality to another camera, I used the Casio Exilim EX-Z120. Casio isn’t a major name in cameras but the Exilim is actually quite good for the price range. It’s got a slightly larger resolution capability, at 7.2MP and has a 7.9-23.7mm / 1:2.5-5.1 lens.

Note: All of these pictures are completely un-edited minus the addition of the camera name. Please excuse the dirty keyboard!

This was an interesting test, because I love taking macro shots. The L1’s color was actually quite off when you look at the keyboard, while the Casio was smack on..

As mentioned in the previous page, the L1 is able to retain the great natural colors of outdoor scenes. The following is a great example of this.

One quick benefit of the L1 is that it has a better zoom capability than the Exilim. I was able to get much better close ups of the following objects, but the quality output from each camera is very close.
