23 Reasons For

One Industry Award

The editor of PhotographyBlog.com recommend this Nikon digital camera and have given it their "Recommended" award.

Good Brand

On average Nikon compact camera digital cameras have good reviews as do all digital cameras produced by Nikon.

Easy to Use

Two Nikon Coolpix L25 owners concluded that it was easy to use. Three years ago Photographyblog.com wrote in their review of the Nikon Coolpix L25 on PhotographyBlog.com “The Nikon Coolpix L25 is an easy to use digital compact camera aimed at the novice user, featuring a 10 megapixel CCD sensor, 5x optical zoom, 720p HD video recording”. Photographyblog.com also said “Ease of use”.

Good Size

A number of people mentioned in their reviews that it was compact. Four years ago Ephotozine.com wrote “The Nikon Coolpix L25 is an entry level compact camera with a 10.1 megapixel sensor, 3 inch screen, 5x optical zoom lens, electronic vibration reduction” in their review of this digital camera.

One customer who purchased it reckoned that it was a good body shape.

Nice Design

One person mentioned in their reviews that it was ergonomic. Expert website Whatdigitalcamera.com said “Its attractively curved plastic body has a nice ergonomic shape that's reflected around all the camera's main styling elements.” in their review of the Nikon Coolpix L25.

CCD Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, which is the most frequently found sensor type on cameras that were released more than two years ago. CCD sensors produce high quality, low-noise images but consume a lot more power than CMOS sensors. CCD is the most common image sensor type used in digital cameras.

It may also be worth considering one of the other digital cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available including because of it's better review score, the GE J1455.

Quite Large Screen Size

The smallest screen size of cameras of a comparable age and type to the Coolpix L25 is 1", the largest is 4.8", and the average screen size is 2.8". The Nikon Coolpix L25 has one of the larger screen sizes (3 inches) amongst compact camera digital cameras of this age.

There are a number of alternative 3" screen cameras currently available that you might want to consider including the ST72, or the WB800F (£409.99) both from Samsung or the GE J1455 which has better reviews.
