Summary: Bought a couple of these cameras for my grandsons age 6 and 9. The camera is very well built, has a useful zoom lens and feels a quality product. Takes remarkable quality stills and short video bursts. Easy to use by both children and adults. The boys loved them and really use them. I am astonished that such a good camera can be bought for so little money. Would certainly recommend.
Summary: I bought this for my brother and his wife who were going on a Mediterranean cruise. Some of the photos, they took, were brillaint. It's just a matter of point and shoot. It's just a matter of carrying a spare set of batteries and all your holidays snaps are taken care of.
Excerpt: "...shops we decided on the Nikon Coolpix L23 which we bought from Mediamarkt in Spain for 56euros on special offer. This included the fabric case, a memory card and two AA batteries, a wrist strap and USB cable. I was impressed with this deal and came home happy. Ours is the silver version and weighs 170gs. Measuring 10cm by 7cms.It fits into the palm of my hand and has a wrist strap which I try always to use as a friend's camera was knocked out ...
Pros: Inexpensive, light, good picture quality .
Cons: You need to chane the batteries to the rechargable kind .
Summary: This really is a superb camera. Like previous reviewers, I had slight difficulty inserting the batteries and the memory card. I still haven't worked out how to attach the wrist strap! Having said this, the camera itself is excellent. The few pictures I have taken so far are great - despite the fact that I have a slight disability and can only hold the camera in one hand!
