See the bigger picture
Packing a powerful 14x NIKKOR optical zoom lens, the COOLPIX L610 offers outstanding precision and sharp resolution even when taking wide-angle holiday shots or capturing a shot of a large group of friends. Meanwhile, the 16-megapixel backlit CMOS sensor ensures natural looking colours, even if you shoot in a low light situation such as a candle-lit dinner.
Easy Panorama mode extends your view even further by offering 360° and 180° photos. While you pan vertically or horizontally across a scene, the camera’s CMOS sensor takes a rapid burst of frames which are merged to instantly create a beautiful panoramic view.
Making memorable photos easy
The COOLPIX L610 is the camera that takes care of everything, ensuring you can enjoy perfect images every time. Select one of the 19 scene modes to best match your shooting situation, or shoot in Easy Auto Mode and let Scene Auto Selector choose the optimum setup for you. The intelligent autofocus control system can also automatically select the best focus area for sharp results whatever your subject is, and wherever it’s positioned in the frame.
Full HD (1080p) movie recording with stereo sound
Now you can get Full HD filming on demand, with a dedicated movie-record button which instantly switches from photos to video. 14x optical zoom and autofocus are available during recording and enable you to get closer to the action.
Take creative control
The COOLPIX L610 makes it simple to get creative with your images and movies. The Quick Retouch Menu lets you enhance the photos you have taken without the need for a computer, offering a range of filter effects such as Selective Color, which converts your image to monochrome and adds a splash of color to an area of your choice, or Cross Screen, which adds a starry effect to bright objects.
The COOLPIX L610 comes in three colours: red, black and silver.
