A camera is a must when you have kids! I absolutely love taking pictures of my kids! They get sick of me taking pictures I do it so much! But I am by no means a photographer. Some of my pictures aren't the greatest which is why I love to have a camera that takes quality pictures even if they aren't from a pro with all the right angles and lighting and details! When I was given the opportunity to review the Nikon Coolpix L28 digital camera from Staples I was really curious and excited to see how well this worked for such an amateur photographer like myself!
The Nikon Coolpix L28 creates pictures with 20.1 megapixels, 5x optical zoom, and 4x digital zoom. It carriers SD, SDHC, and SDXC memory cards and is powered by two AA batteries. There are 18 scene modes and a smart portrait system to get the best pictures in the setting you are in.
I received the Nikon Coolpix L28 the day before we were leaving for vacation to Panama City Beach! I was so excited to give it a try while we were at the beach! I was able to put my current SD card right into the camera to save the pictures I took right to the card. The camera is nice and small and fits great in my hand. When I was first trying out the camera it took me a while to figure out which scene setting was the best for taking the pictures I wanted to take. At first there were lines going straight across every picture I took and I was honestly getting frustrated. But then after letting my hubby play with it for a bit, he got it all figured out and in the right scene mode and I started taking beautiful pictures! Some of the features I love about this camera is how simple it is to use. I can literally just point the camera where I want to take a picture and press the button and I have a beautiful picture! I love the zoom feature on it as well as the video feature! Other than the scene settings, I was able to figure out the camera completely on my own with no help. This camera is definitely simple enough for amateurs like me!
So when we got home from the beach I plugged my SD card into my computer to see how the pictures really turned out! I was so pleasantly surprised! They were gorgeous!
None of these pictures above have been edited other than me adding the watermark to them! Aren't they great pictures?! They all came from the Nikon Coolpix L28!
Overall I am so pleased with the Nikon Coolpix L28! It is easy to use and works great! The pictures come out gorgeous every time! It's perfect for someone who isn't very familiar with cameras or who is a beginner at photography like myself. At Staples.com you can get it for a great price too! If you are on the lookout for a simple, yet durable camera for yourself or as a gift I definitely recommend you check out the Nikon Coolpix L28 digital camera!
