25 Reasons For

Nikon Has Good Digital Camera Reviews

On average Nikon waterproof cameras have good reviews compared to other brands as do all cameras manufactured by Nikon.

Has an Image Stabiliser

The Coolpix AW130 has an image stabiliser, as do most of the other comparable spec cameras that have been around for a similar time to the Coolpix AW130.

We compared this digital camera to all the other cameras with an image stabiliser and we think the Nikon Coolpix S33 (£102.40) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

It is worth also looking at alternative digital cameras which also have an image stabiliser including the Fujifilm FinePix XP80 (£146.81).
