Yet a pleasing aspect of this Coolpix L100 is that, it is a super-zoom gadget with very easy setting approach, like point-and-shoot capability. This will prove a big step forward to follow on the footsteps of Nikon, to produce easy-to-use features and settings by other camera producers either.
Even a closer look and analysis will give you some more advanced features, you may not have enable to experience during its general look, I mean, its finer quality and outer finish, and with strongly mounted capabilities. Its tripod is made up by metal.
