The Nikon Coolpix L14 features a seven megapixel CCD linked to a Nikkor-branded 3x optical zoom lens, in an understated, stylish and relatively compact body. The Coolpix L14 offers a 2.4-inch 115,000 pixel LCD for framing and playback, but like many other small cameras these days, the L14 includes no optical viewfinder.

Nikon is known for a few special features that are included in the Nikon L14, including D-Lighting (which enhances darker images to improve shadow detail), Best Shot Selector mode (which takes a series of shots, letting the camera automatically pick the sharpest shot and discard the others), Red-Eye Fix (which automatically finds red-eye in your images and eliminates it), and finally Face-Priority AF (which, as the name implies, automatically focuses on faces).

Other Coolpix L14 features include a 64 - 1000 sensitivity range, 23MB of built-in memory, a Secure Digital slot which is also compatible with newer SDHC cards, as well as USB and NTSC / PAL video connectivity. The Coolpix L14 draws power from two standard AA batteries, with Lithium disposables included in the product bundle.

The Nikon Coolpix L14 ships from September 2007, priced at US$149.95. For only US$30 more in list price, the Coolpix L15 offers higher resolution; a wider, optically stabilized lens; and a larger, higher resolution LCD.
