For a camera that does it all and makes it look easy, it's hard to beat Nikon's Coolpix L810 Digital Camera (Black). You get a high resolution 16.1MP sensor, a sharp Nikon 26x zoom lens that will carry you from a very wide-angle 22.5mm all the way to ultra telephoto 585mm (equivalent in 35mm format)--there's really no type of photography (landscape, portraits, parties, travel, wildlife, sports, etc.) that isn't possible with this range. And with optical image stabilization and sensitivity up to 1600 ISO, you'll get sharp pictures every time, even in low light or using the longest telephoto setting.
Of course, 1280 x 720 HD video is included, with stereo sound--all you need to do is touch one button and you're shooting beautiful video without making any adjustments. A bright, high-resolution (921K dots) 3" LCD display helps you capture and view great images under any lighting conditions.
Other great features include modes that automatically detect and photograph a smile, warn you when your subject blinks and correct redeye automatically. 19 Scene modes adjust the camera settings for different common photo situations.
