Nikon Coolpix L27 review


Lightweight, 16MP novice friendly compact camera

Very easy to operate ; Good handling ; Custom white balance available

Depressing shutter button doesn't return you to shooting mode ; Limited setting options ; Struggles in bright light ; Short battery life

The Nikon L27 is a very basic camera, designed without frills or some of the functions we've come to expect from even entry-level cameras. With no full or part manual modes it is more likely to appeal to users who would prefer not to fiddle with...
