The Nikon Coolpix L10 doesn't look like a digital camera made for kids but it's priced just right for them.
And it's a great deal on a digital camera for anyone who enjoys composing images, and capturing the moment without having to worry about photographic science. But there's plenty of photographic science built into this digital camera. The Coolpix line has always offered Nikon's clever Best Shot Selector mode, saving the largest JPEG of a series shot in low light, as a way of capturing the sharpest image. But the L10 also comes with Face-Priority Auto Focus, and D-Lighting plus Red-Eye Fix. Unlike many digital camera features, these are tools you'll actually use.
What's missing is manual control -- even of ISO, which can go as high as 800. But that won't be missed by anyone new to digital photography. They'll find the camera easy to carry and use, especially with the large type in the LCD menus. For them, this is a Dave's Pick, and the incredibly low price makes it a sweet deal.
