Nikon Coolpix L25 Camera is an excellent 10mp snap taker which will also take 720p video

So, how about a nice point and shoot compact camera? The Nikon Coolpix L25 Digital Camera has a Nikkor wide-angle 5x optical zoom lens (28–140mm) making it ideal for everything from scenic shots to close-ups, and with a 10 megapixel resolution you´ll capture wonderfully detailed images.

No squinting at a tiny little screen either – the Nikon Coolpix has a large 7.5cm LCD screen for clear shooting and playback. And with an anti-blur function that reduces the effect of camera shake, motion detection compensation for blur from the subject moving and excellent light sensitivity for taking sharper images in low light, the basics are all there.

But there´s more! The Nikon has an easy auto mode that lets you simply turn on the camera and start shooting immediately, the camera will select the right mode for you. It also has a raft of features to make taking pictures of people easier – advanced red-eye reduction and a face-priority function that detects a person’s face then automatically focuses on it (even if they move!).

How about detecting when the subject is smiling or blinking? No problem, the Nikon has two options Blink Proof and Smile Mode, and when selected will detect the face of a portrait subject and automatically take two sequential shots when the subject smiles, then save the image in which the subject’s eyes are open. It even has skin softening function to ensure smooth skin tone on the face of your subjects! And it´ll even take 720p resolution video.

Happy days!
