Nikon Coolpix L100 Review


The Nikon Coolpix L100 is a good superzoom compact – from wide to telephoto you can expect good quality images from a sterling lens, that’s only let down by a lack of more developed manual controls, in particular no comprehensive ISO options.

At £240 the L100 is hardly pocket money, but it’s as affordable as they come when pitched against viable competitors’ offerings. The 4xAA batteries certainly won't appeal to all, with a li-ion battery option lacking. Fundamentally, if there was a more consistent autofocus that successfully dealt with those near-side subjects, then the Nikon L100 would offer a more accomplished all-round purchase. Sadly, it doesn’t quite tick all the boxes, leaving a feeling of disappointment for those seeking a developed all-rounder.
