I recently purchase the Nikon Coolpix L20 after lots of shopping.

I have used only Olympus cameras only up to now.

This time I wanted a smaller pocket sized camera, that still took the AA batteries, and that still gave great photos with all the features I was used to.
This camera fit the bill!

It takes 2 AA batteries, inexpensive SD memory cards and yet still delivers fantastic photos.

I have already tried all the features, and was completly happy.
I love using the different scene settings, and could not live without the video feature.
Both still and video capture worked well in both bright light and low light.
The sound playback via the camera is hard to distinquish (live music), but fine once uploaded.
I didn't really require the smile feature, but tried it out on my 3 year old, and was blown away....it really works!
The blink feature is also quite ingenious. The camera actually asks you if your subject blinked when they do, but not when they don't. This is particularly handy when taking photos of children. I would have loved this feature when I was still my daughter's yearbook photographer.

What can I say, fabulous price and awesome quality!!!
Definately worth the money.

Comparibly priced camera's that we have used, produce grainy shots.....but have not found this with this camera at all.
I would recommend this camera to anyone!

This is a professional camera capable of crystal clear prints worthy of publication or gallery display, up to 16x20.

And it is incredibly inexpensive for a camera of such value.

Ok, so its 3.6 optical zoom won't pick sand off an eagle's beak at a thousand yards. Okay, so it won't blow up to billboard size without loss of definition. In the real world however and everyday use this is a fine and professional level camera that will do a far better job than you expected. Better than a cell-phone.

Disguised as a point and shoot. That's what makes it very effective; people are not intimidated by it. You can get right up to them, and it looks like any other camera. Yet, it is more.

In fact, the generous three inch LCD screen means you do not have to hold it to your face. There is no optical viewfinder in any case. So you can hold it at your hip and glance down at it to compose, and snap shots while engaging the subject in small talk comfortably. I have done this effectively with Tarahumara Indian children in northern Chihuahua who normally run quickly from any camera. It works, and came out great. And that large LCD screen has a high-contrast, anti-reflection coating which keeps it clear even in strong sunlight.

This camera is an improvement over the earlier, wonderful Coolpix, such as the great 8 megapix Nikon Coolpix L18 8MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Zoom (Ruby Red) mainly because it has ten megapix capability. The earlier accessories such as the AC adapter, the

Verified Purchase
I bought this camera for my wife when her Olympus Stylus 300 had run it's life expectancy. May it rest in peace. The Nikon Coolpix is relatively easy to use.. has lots of decent features and the price was killer, but.. picture quality isn't as good as her late Olympus or the Canon Sureshot we also use. However.. It is worth the money. In hindsight I wish I'd spent $50-90 more and got another Canon Sureshot. The picture difference is noticeable. Me thinks this Nikon would be perfect for a child or teen learning to use a camera and NOT seeking hi-end results. My 2 doubloons.

Okay, so I don't usually make reviews here (a little too private). But I couldn't help but come to the rescue of this highly misunderstood product. Too much negative reviews for a product that actually delivers, IMO. I bought this item as a gift for my 11 year old daughter. Then when I looked at most of the reviews here, my heart sank. Should I have researched more? But being that hard headed as I am. Plus I don't like the headache of returning things, that I have already bought. I investigated more and really tested this product. First off, I noticed that mostly first time camera users seemed to have no problem with this camera (like a reviewer's fifth grader here or a grandpa). So what seems to be the problem? Okay, I found out this - most of us have been used to other digital cameras where you half pressed first on the shutter to focus before you press all the way and shoot. Well this camera has what you call an easy auto mode - wherein the camera does everything for you including focusing. With easy auto mode, it is just that - easy - just point, camera does it's job and shoot right away. Let the camera focus for you (it actually makes a sound) and once it does that then just shoot away. Don't even half press anymore and "wala" - very sharp pictures that even a fifth grader and grandpa could take. I have found out that in easy auto mode and then I half press to focus or don't click right away after the camera focuses - pictures come out so blurry. But, wow! Just follow what I say and the pictures are so sharp. The camera also has the standard auto mode, wherein you could half press first to focus (if you're used to that), and the pictures still come out so sharp. So there you go, this camera I highly recommend and is a good point and shoot camera that takes really sharp pictures. Don't believe me? Investigate for yourself and just follow what I did...
