Nikon COOLPIX L20 10.0 MP Digital Camera - Deep red

The Nikon COOLPIX L20 is made for the average or beginner photographer. With a 3.6x optical zoom, this Nikon digital camera is easy to use, yet packed with a lot of features that are appealing to experienced photographers. For instance, the bright, 3-inch LCD screen on this 10 MP digital camera makes it easy to see what photos will look like before they are taken. The Nikon COOLPIX L20 also has motion detection sensors that automatically adjust for a shaky hand to minimize blurry photos. This Nikon digital camera even takes good-quality photos in low light and outdoor settings. The Auto mode on the Nikon COOLPIX L20 can be used for any environment, but there are a variety of other settings that can be set manually to achieve the desired effect. This 10 MP digital camera even detects when someone has blinked during a photo and notifies the user that a new photo should be taken. With support for SD cards and a large internal memory, this Nikon camera is perfect for trips, too.
