Buy It
“The Nikon Coolpix L26 is simply an excellent camera for an excellent price. 16 mega pixels make the photo clear and crisp; good for landscapes, amateur photography, and candid photos. The 5x Zoom is adequate and suits the camera very well.” – By Ivan Volcof

Very nice little camera
“This one has it all…interesting features…a little complex for a novice, but easy use when using the camera in default from the factory. It can sense pictures when you smile or have your eyes closed and compensate…really cool (you have to pre-set these features from default).” – By Richard

Can’t go wrong with a Nikon
