Proven optical lens shift VR image stabilization
Field proven technology originally developed for interchangeable lenses used in Nikon SLR camera systems, optical lens shift VR image stabilization provides the ability to shoot at shutter speeds as much as three steps slower without blurring the image, while also realizing a smoother image when shooting.
New Easy Auto mode and scene modes for carefree shooting
Easy Auto mode makes it easier to turn on the camera and shoot without worrying about settings. Easy access to 15 different scene modes and three movie modes also ensures shooting that is tuned to give the best results to match the moment.

Three Unique Nikon Image Innovations
The COOLPIX L15 features a selection of three innovative functions that provide the ability to actually improve the quality of images within the camera. Face-priority AF* automatically finds, then focuses on people's faces for crisp, clear results time after time. In-Camera Red-Eye Fix automatically compensates to help eradicate traces of the annoying red-eye effect that can sometimes be encountered during flash photography. And D-Lighting can be applied to improve underexposed images or shots taken with too much backlight. D-Lighting automatically creates a copy of the image with detail added where necessary, but with well-exposed areas left completely untouched.
* Face recognition capability may be limited in some shooting conditions.

AA-size batteries for carefree shooting, anywhere
The COOLPIX L15 runs on AA-size batteries, a standard battery size available in virtually every corner of the world. This means carefree shooting anywhere, free of any worries about running out of power or needing to recharge when that special shutter chance arises.

ISO 1000 capability for better pictures in lower light
Making it easier to take great-looking pictures in lower lighting conditions, or to capture fast moving subjects with outstanding clarity, the COOLPIX L15 accurately measures available light to automatically select the optimal sensitivity setting for the shot between the range of ISO 64 to as high as ISO 1000.

Stop-Motion animation for more creative fun
Stop-motion makes it easy to create animated films within the camera. Users can shoot models, move them, shoot them again and, when done, have the camera processes the images to deliver professional-looking results using the timing of preference.
