Summary: The Nikon Coolpix L19 is a good camera for the price. If you can afford a little more, youâ€™ll get better image quality, but if budget is a primary factor, then this is a great alternative to a camera phone.
Excerpt: Years ago, Nikon was one of the first major companies to come out with a high-quality point-and-shoot camera for the serious photographer. That camera, the Coolpix 900, had a 1Mp sensor and cost around £400. Eleven years later, you can pick up Nikon's 8Mp Coolpix L19 for around £90.
Summary: The Nikon Coolpix L19 is very similar to the Coolpix L20, but about £30 cheaper, which really changes the equation. The lower specs don't matter in a camera designed for budget-conscious beginners.
Pros: AA batteries are practical and give good battery life, Easy to use for beginners, Low price
Cons: Weak wideangle capability, No manual ISO control, Modest resolution
