A compact, 26x high-power optical zoom model–the L810–and two 5x optical zoom entry-level models–the L26 and L25–that make capturing beautiful photos simple and fun
TOKYO - Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the release of three L-series cameras, which place emphasis on capturing beautiful photos with the simplest of operation. The L810 maintains a compact size despite its 26x high-power optical zoom lens. The L26 and L25 are entry-level models that offer 5x optical zoom and automatic shooting functions that make taking beautiful pictures simple.
Despite its compact size, the L810 is equipped with a CCD image sensor with an effective pixel count of 16.1-million pixels, a 26x optical zoom NIKKOR lens that covers angles of view from the wide-angle 22.5 to super telephoto 585 mm (equivalent in 35-mm  format), and a new lens-shift vibration reduction (VR) function. It offers the same form that supports a firm, steady grip and side zoom control that have made previous COOLPIX L-series models so popular for their high performance.
The L26, with its CCD image sensor with an effective pixel count of 16.1-million pixels, and the L25, successor to the COOLPIX L23 (released in February 2011), are equipped with a 5x optical zoom NIKKOR lens and a large and clear 3-inch TFT LCD monitor. In addition to Easy auto shooting mode for simple capture of photos exhibiting superior image quality, and an independent movie-record button that enables movie recording with the press of a button, both of these models are powered by AA batteries that can be purchased anywhere. These compact digital cameras are so easy to use that even first-time users will find taking beautiful pictures extremely simple.
L810 Primary Features

Despite its compact size, the L810 is equipped with a CCD image sensor with an effective pixel count of 16.1-million pixels for superior image quality and a 26x optical zoom NIKKOR lens that covers a broad range of angles of view from 22.5 to 585 mm (both equivalent in 35-mm  format). This makes shooting a variety of everyday scenes, from wide-angle landscapes to close-ups of people using zoom, extremely easy.

3. Newly adopted lens-shift vibration reduction (VR) function
The L810 is the first high-power zoom model in the COOLPIX L series to be equipped with a lens-shift vibration reduction (VR) function. This enables high-precision optical camera shake compensation that can also be used with movie recording.
4. A bright, high-resolution 3-inch TFT LCD monitor with wide viewing angle
The camera is equipped with a large and clear 3-inch, approximately 921k-dot TFT LCD monitor with wide viewing angle for which a Clear Color Display has been adopted. Monitor display clear and bright, even outdoors under direct sunlight and indoors where reflected lighting is often problematic, making shooting, applying settings, and viewing images easy. In addition, the expanded color reproduction range covers a broader range of colors for reproduction of nearly the entire sRGB gamut.
