Review: Nikon CoolPix L21

 

Digital Cameras have gone a long way these past 15 or so years. I still remember our first digital camera. It was a Fuji point and shoot with a resolution of 640×480 and it was damn expensive. Nevertheless at that time you were already cool if you...

Really affordable price ; Decent build quality ; Decent image quality for the price

Image stabilizing does not work very well

So for those people on a budget who want a no frills but decent camera, the Nikon CoolPix L21 definitely warrants consideration.

It`s very easy to use, reliable, cool with its quality assured for a good price and it is made in Japan.

Nikon Coolpix L21 review

 

While mid-price compact cameras are caught up in an ill-advised megapixel race, a welcome side effect is that budget cameras are far from being under-specified. The Nikon L21 is one of the most affordable cameras we've ever seen, and its 8-megapixel...

There’s a complete lack of frills, but with respectable image quality and simple controls, it’s just right for a budget point-and-shoot camera

Great little camera

 

Soon found it easy to use - being unused to the large screen viewer . Just taken it on a cruise and have taken loads of fab. pics. It slips easily into a small handbag.

Very compact and very easy to use, both for still photos and short movies. The camera batteries seem to last well too. Ideal if you want to be able to take good quality photos without spending hours learning how to use the camera, but more advanced...
