Matt, Oxfordshire, UK Point & shoot

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Purchased this for my father-in-law as I knew how simply Nikon cameras are. We have three Nikon Coolpix cameras (of various specs) in our household and they are great. The L21 is very easy to use and produces good quality pictures. If all you want is to point and shoot and not have complicated menus, then you can't go wrong with this.
Bad points:
None.

Jo, Canterbury Point & shoot

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Very compact and very easy to use, both for still photos and short movies. The camera batteries seem to last well too. Ideal if you want to be able to take good quality photos without spending hours learning how to use the camera, but more advanced features are available if you want them.
Bad points:
None.

Digital Cameras Buyers' Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

Effective pixel count of 8-million pixels and a 3.6x optical zoom NIKKOR lens. 2.5-in. TFT LCD monitor.
Available in three colors
The COOLPIX L21 will be available with three color options with different accent colors on the top of the camera for casual yet elegant color combinations.

Optimized image processing engine based on EXPEED, Nikon’s exclusive image processing concept
Easy Auto mode for simple operation
The camera makes capturing beautiful photos simple. By simply framing a subject, the camera analyzes the frame to automatically select the appropriate scene mode.

A variety of functions that ensure consistently beautiful portraits
In addition to face-priority AF, the camera offers additional advanced functions that make beautiful portraits possible, including a function that automatically releases the shutter when a face it has recognized smiles, the blink proof function and In-Camera Red-Eye Fix.

3 features that effectively prevent or reduce blur caused by camera shake and subject movement
In addition to the Motion Detection and Nikon’s own BSS (best shot selector) functions, electronic vibration reduction (VR) effectively reduces blur caused by camera shake and subject movement.

Motion detection:
The camera detects camera shake and subject movement with shooting, and automatically compensates by increasing shutter speed and ISO sensitivity. Blur is reduced to a level equal to a roughly 2-step increase in shutter speed.

Nikon’s own BSS:
The camera automatically shoots up to ten sequential frames and saves the one with the sharpest focus

Electronic Vibration Reduction (VR):
Digital compensation is applied with image processing to images in which the camera detects blur

Powered by AA-size batteries readily available anywhere
The camera supports alkaline and lithium AA-size batteries that can be purchased anywhere. Batteries that are exhausted while away from home are easily replaced, enabling worry free shooting.

Compact body with an elegant design and improved operation
Designed to be extremely portable, the camera has a smooth and rounded shape with a high-quality look and feel and elegant finishing. A rotating zoom control is positioned on the top of the camera and buttons on the back of the camera are widely spaced for an improved, more steady grip with shooting. What’s more, the shooting mode button and playback button have been positioned on the back of the camera for simple operation.
