Affordable point-and-shoot digital cameras like the Nikon Coolpix L20 usually don't offer very good image quality but this 10MP digital camera delivers exactly that along with the ability to use AA size batteries. Lets take a closer look at this digital camera model.
Camera Optical Zoom
Design: Since the Nikon Coolpix L20 uses two AA sized batteries the camera body is a bit thicker and bulkier compared to other digital cameras that use proprietary li-ion batteries. Thankfully, Nikon have formed the grip around the bulkier battery compartment making the camera easier to hold even with wet hands. Utilizing a large three inch LCD, minimal controls and a shiny surface finish the camera looks great and feels good in your hands. At 4.8 ounces it is quite lightweight.
Camera Optical Zoom
Specifications: The Nikon Coolpix L20 offers 10 megapixel images with a 3.6x optical zoom and a 38mm-136mm focal length lens (35mm equivalent). This allows it to zoom in a bit further and take slightly wider than average images. The camera uses SD and SDHC memory cards and two AA sized batteries. This means that you can use normal off-the-shelf alkaline batteries or rechargeable ni-MH batteries. The camera takes JPEG still images and even allows you to use the optical zoom while taking 640x480 movies running at 30fps, something which not many digital cameras allow you to do. With digital image stabilization the camera is surprisingly rock-steady and lasts a respectable 230 shots on two AA-sized batteries.
Features & Performance: If you're used to pressing the shutter button half-way to auto-focus first then the Nikon Coolpix L20 is extremely easy to use with pretty fast shutter speed. While the camera does offer various image-recording modes you cannot manually adjust exposure or ISO. Instead the camera automatically adjusts ISO to suit current lighting conditions. Thankfully, the camera is intelligent enough to create great images which are sharp in detail and have accurate exposure. Other automatic features of note include a Blink mode that warns if somebody blinked while the shot was being taken and a guided panorama mode for easy panorama shots. All in all the Nikon Coolpix L20 is a surprisingly good point-and-shoot digital camera with intelligent automatic functions. It should suit any new point-and-shoot user or just the average tourist, thanks to its ease of use and easy to get AA sized batteries.

Christmas Sales Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4.0-5.6 IS Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon Digital SLR Cameras Overview
This telephoto zoom lens is designed with Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer technology while retaining compactness and lightness, in response to demands of photographers. This high zoom ratio lens is equivalent to a focal length of 88-400mm in the 35mm format (when used on Canon EOS cameras compatible with EF-S lenses), and the image stabilizer effect equivalent to a shutter speed about 4 stops faster than the same size lens without Image Stabilizer. In other words, if the slowest shutter speed you could formerly hold a 250mm lens steadily was 1/250th of a second, with Canon's 4-stop stabilization correction, you could hand-hold at shutter speeds as slow as 1/15th of a second. It also uses a UD-glass lens element to correct chromatic aberration for excellent image quality throughout the zoom range. This new EF-S telephoto lens with great features delivers excellent performance at an affordable price for all photographers.

Incorporating Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer technology, this Canon 55-250mm telephoto zoom lens captures long distance, low-light shots far better than many comparable lenses, helping you photograph the far-off action of athletes or zoom in for an intimate portrait with a blurred background. The high-zoom-ratio lens is equivalent to a focal length of 88-400mm in the 35mm format (when used on Canon EOS cameras compatible with EF-S lenses). More significantly, the image stabilizer effect creates an equivalent shutter speed of roughly four stops faster than the same size lens without an image stabilizer. In other words, if the slowest shutter speed you can hold a 250mm lens steadily is normally 1/250th of a second, this Canon lens will let you hand-hold shutter speeds as slow as 1/15th of a second. The lens also boasts a UD-glass lens element to correct chromatic aberration to create excellent image quality throughout the zoom range. Delivering an excellent performance at an affordable price for all photographers, the 55-250mm lens carries a one-year warranty.
