The Nikon Coolpix L610 offers a combination of ease of use and a fair amount of zoom power. The 14x zoom lens gives enough flexibility for you to be able to capture most typical photo opportunities.
Nikon have placed the emphasis on making sure anyone without any knowledge of photography and the mechanics of a digital camera can use this camera. It has an Easy Auto mode that strips down the features to the nuts and bolts of what you require to take a picture. All you have to do is concentrate on composing your shot.
There are 19 pre programmed scene modes you can take advantage of. The idea is that you select a scene to match the type of photo you are about to take. This makes it easy for the Coolpix L610 to select what it considers to be the optimum settings for the shot.
Other features include Image Stabilisation. This feature helps to ensure your photos are free of any unwanted blur. You can also create 180 degree or 360 degree panoramic shots without the need to do anything clever or difficult.
One area where this camera offers a bit more than a lot of cameras available at this price point is with its movie mode. It can shoot Full High Definition Movies with stereo sound.
Power is supplied by AA batteries.
