Don't miss a minute of the action.
When life is action-packed, you need a camera that takes great photos and videos without interrupting the fun. The super-fast, super-easy COOLPIX L610 hits the mark. Zoom way in with a 14x optical Zoom-NIKKOR ED glass lens. Optical VR image stabilization keeps the shot steady (even if your hands are not). You won't have to worry about camera settings - Easy Auto Mode makes all the control decisions for you. Fire off blazing fast 16-megapixel action sequences, even after the sun goes down. And since the COOLPIX L610 uses regular AA batteries, you'll never be without power.
Zoom in on the action
14x telephoto zoom with Optical VR image stabilization
When the action starts, you want to catch it - sometimes from a safe distance. With the COOLPIX L610's powerful telephoto Zoom-NIKKOR ED glass lens, you can zoom in on your subject from amazingly far away. Extreme macro shots are just as easy. The COOLPIX L610 lets you get as close as 0.4-in. (1 cm) from your subject! And whether near or far, your photos and videos will be razor-sharp, thanks to built-in Optical VR image stabilization.
Catch great moments
Superior low-light performance
The COOLPIX L610's highly sensitive 16.0-megapixel CMOS sensor lets you shoot with confidence in the most challenging conditions. You'll create brilliant photos and Full HD (1080p) videos in nearly any lighting situation - indoors without a flash, during sunsets, on cloudy days, beside nighttime cityscapes and more. And when the action speeds up, no problem! The COOLPIX L610 has ultra-fast framing rates and can fire up to 1.9 shots per second (4 shots) for exciting action sequences. Target Finding AF ensures your subject is in focus in every frame.
Maximum results, minimum fuss
Onboard intelligence for easy success
When you're shooting fast action, you don't have time to fuss with camera settings. Luckily, the COOLPIX L610 can do all the work for you. Easy Auto Mode automatically detects what you're shooting and selects the best Scene Mode (from among 6) for the situation. For more challenging situations, choose one of the camera's 19 Scene Modes like Night Portrait, Night Landscape, Backlighting and more, and the COOLPIX L610 will make sure you get great results!
High definition videos with style
Some stories can only be told with a movie. When that moment happens, just touch the COOLPIX L610's movie record button and you'll instantly be recording in Full HD (1080p) with stereo sound.
Ready when you are
The COOLPIX L610 can run on two regular AA batteries, so a fresh set of batteries will never be far out of reach. It also accepts alkaline, lithium type and Nikon rechargeable batteries, available as an optional accessory.
