The Nikon Coolpix L26 is a Great First Camera

The Nikon Coolpix L26The Nikon Coolpix L26 is an excellent camera for beginners. It is a described as a no frills camera- and is one of the cheapest around, but has a surprising array of features and still retains the quality you would expect from Nikon. The 5x lens is the usual high Nikon standard and it produces a 16 mega-pixel file. It has an easy to use auto mode  (with 18 simple options) and has a larger than average LCD screen. Portraits are easy with the Smart Portrait System, which has blink warning and skin toning.

It slips into video recording at the touch of a button and can shoot remarkably crisp 720p video. 

The L26 takes AA batteries and is available in silver, red and black.

The Coolpix L26 is ideal for someone who just wants a basic point and shoot, a youngster showing an interest in photography, or to take to places you wouldn’t want to take an expensive camera. Although it seems basic, it is capable of taking some great shots.
