Three unique Nikon image enhancements
The COOLPIX L14 has three innovative functions to choose from that allow photographers to improve the quality of in-camera images. Face Priority AF* automatically finds, then focuses on a face for clear, sharp results time and time again.

And D-Lighting can be applied to improve low-light images or photos taken with too much backlight. D-Lighting automatically creates a copy of the image with details added as needed, but well-exposed areas are left untouched at all.
* Face recognition capabilities may be limited under some shooting conditions.
Stop-Motion animation for more creative fun
