Summary: I have become enamored with advanced point and shoot cameras. While I realize that a good DSLR would give me the best quality, lugging around camera systems is no longer my desire. This Nikon satisfies the need for a good lens on a camera designed for people that don't want to play around with settings. And it's a Nikon.
Excerpt: I purchase the Nikon - Coolpix L100 digital camera a year back as a semi-professional camera. This camera is kind of a midpoint digital camera in terms of price... but it really delivers. The pictures that I have taken with this camera in various light conditions is quite stunning. In addition, if one buys other lens packages, one can get a gamut of photographs both at long distances as well as at wide-angle.
Summary: Camera does what normal camera does but more than your phone. I have got so use to a phone cam that I have yet to buy a normal one for some time. This one has much better zoom feature and crystal clear pictures that can easily be uploaded to your social website.
Summary: Great mid priced cameras takes awesome photos. Some of the settings are a little different than what I am used to. Once you learn the menu system though, it goes back up to 5 stars. This camera can go around your neck or in a bag. Not as easy to put in your pocket. but I didn't buy it for portability.
Summary: I love it. Mine came with no manual and I am still able to figure out all of the functions. Very user friendly. Its light and easy to hold. The pictures come out phenomenal. The only thing I dont care for is that in only uses 4 AA batteries...but rechargers work great with it.
