Summary: The Nikon L23 has plenty going for it. The large buttons, low price tag, simple operation and comfortable handing make it ideal for first-time users. It's a shame, therefore, that image quality is generally quite poor and not suitable for critical use – but, considering its £70 price tag, it's hit the nail on the head for the budget end of the compact market.
Conclusion: Although you are likely to be impressed with how easy it is to use the Nikon Coolpix L23 you are equally unlikely to be impressed by the picture quality it offers. Although it is relatively cheap there are other digital cameras that offer better value for money.
