Lights, Camera, Action
Sometimes you need more than just a photo and with the COOLPIX L30 you can effortlessly record crisp HD (720p) video with sound at maximum image quality thanks to the efficient Nikon EXPEED C2 image-processing engine. A dedicated movie-record button on the reverse of the camera makes it easy to switch from shooting mode into the world of film making. Once you’ve finished recording you can view your movie on the wide 7.5 cm (3 inch) LCD screen and decide if you need another take. The LCD screen has both an anti-reflection coating and 5-level brightness adjustment for clear shooting and playback, even in bright sunlight.
An ISO of up to 1600 and Motion Blur Reduction ensure great results even when the light is fading.
Providing you with the opportunity to seize the perfect picture in a split second and edit shots on the spot, the in-camera Smart Portrait System includes features which automatically retouch and enhance your photos. Smile Timer takes the shot when your subject smiles, and Red-Eye Fix corrects false eye colour resulting from flash photography. Blink Proof takes two shots and keeps the one in which the subject’s eyes are more open. It even warns you if it saved a picture in which your subject’s eyes may have been closed. These innovative functions help make any subject look their best and maximise your chance of a successful result.
Have fun shooting and enhance your images with unique artistic expression. Apply one of the many Filter effects and make your pictures stand out from the crowd. Super-vivid colour, sepia or high-contrast monochrome are just some of the effects that will add style and drama to your photographs.
