Nikon DL Compact camera buying guide

For everyday shooters ‘Nikon DL 18-50mm is the best for you

If you ask me to choose the best camera among these three, I will pick the Nikon DL 18-50mm model. Why ? Since Nikon DL covers a very vital range that a professional photographer will ever need, gives you super speedy AF experience while delivering intense image quality under a tight and small compact body.

Nikon DL is world’s first compact camera to feature 18mm wide range by having such a large sensor inside it, the camera also touches 50mm range that is sufficient for shooting portraits with creamy background (yep F2.8, tele-end 50mm and a  far scenery background will create some bokeh).

Best Camera for Travelographers – Nikon DL 24-500mm

The Nikon DL covers a very vast range and comes in big size tat will not going to fit inside your pocket, however despite of being big size the camera gives you class leading image quality, Blazing fast AF speed and a option to create 4K video on the go. A superb camera..  Believe me.

Nikon-24-85mm-lens-image

The Nikon DL 24-58mm camera – Best Pal for entry-level photographers

If you take very less wide-angle shots than 24-85mm camera is best for you. The DL 24-85mm will give you bit more zoom range while cutting out the wide range, however you can capture wide-angle family and friends shots 🙂 but you will feel limited when you will shoot landscape or architecture with DL 24-58mm camera.
