The Nikon Coolpix L19 couples an eight effective megapixel image sensor with a Nikkor-branded 3.6x optical zoom lens that offers 35mm-equivalent focal lengths from a rather tight 41mm wide angle to a useful 145mm telephoto. Maximum aperture varies from f/3.1 to f/6.7 across the zoom range. There's no true mechanical image stabilization on this model, but the Nikon L19 does have the ability to vary its sensitivity automatically from a minimum of ISO 64 to a maximum of ISO 1600 equivalent - so it should be able to freeze camera shake and subject motion at the expense of some image noise / detail.

The Nikon L19 is capable of focusing to one foot (30 centimeters) ordinarily, and as close as two inches (five centimeters) in macro mode. Coolpix L19 images must be framed and reviewed on the camera's 2.7", 230,000 dot LCD display as there's no optical viewfinder on this model. Images are stored on Secure Digital cards, including the newer Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC) types, or in 20MB of built-in memory. Power comes courtesy of two AA batteries, with alkaline disposables included in the product bundle.The alkalines are rated as good for 240 shots to CIPA testing standards, while Lithium batteries are rated for 630 shots.

The Nikon Coolpix L19 will be offered from February 2009, with expected pricing of $110 or thereabouts. The only body color available in North America will be silver.
