Why Has it Scored 68?

It has great user reviews but average expert reviews with an average overall rating of 74%, based on 229 reviews. This digital camera has received a "Recommended" award from PhotographyBlog.com. Praktica cameras also have excellent reviews in general.
It is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer cameras with better features are available. However this Nikon digital camera has good reviews so it may still be worth considering. View the latest digital cameras 2018.
Customers report it is easy to use, it is a good size and technical guidance.
The Coolpix L25 has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:

Average minimum aperture number
NIKKOR wide-angle 5x optical zoom lens (28 140mm): from group shots to close-ups, this lens offers superb precision and sharp resolution, so you can capture moments with ease

7.5 cm (3.0-in.) LCD screen: the large LCD monitor with wide viewing angle offers clear shooting and playback
E-VR (vibration reduction): capture steady photos and movies thanks to nikon's automatic vibration reduction technology, which counters the effects of camera shake
10 mp: the 10-megapixel CCD image sensor lets you capture wonderfully detailed images and produce superb poster-size enlargements
Smart portrait system: snap perfect portraits every time. smile timer takes the shot when your subject smiles. blink proof alerts you when someone's eyes were closed. skin softening adjusts uneven skin tones for smoother-looking skin. red-eye fix corrects false eye color due to the flash
AA-size batteries: your camera is powered by two aa-size batteries, which are readily available across the world
Anti-blur: enjoy clear images with automatic technology that counters image blur. high ISO (up to 1600) light sensitivity for sharper images in low light. motion detection compensates for camera and subject movement. best shot selector (bss) selects the sharpest of up to ten sequential shots
18 scene modes: scene modes automatically optimize the camera settings for popular photographic styles, effects and locations. achieve great shots just by selecting the mode that matches your situation
