The Nikon COOLPIX L21 is a sensible bargain for any amateur photographer, and despite its low price and tiny size, it packs a very powerful punch. The Nikon COOLPIX L21 captures images with Nikon's famous NIKKOR lens and the camera has an optical zoom of 3.6X.

Easy Auto system for the amateur photographer enhances the user-friendliness of the Nikon COOLPIX L21 and a variety of enhancing functions help deliver professional looking photographs with point-and-shoot action.
The Nikon COOLPIX L21 has three features that really work and reduce photo blurs:
1. Motion Detection: The camera automatically compensates camera shake by increasing shutter speed and ISO sensitivity.
2. Nikon BSS: Automatic capture of ten sequential frames and saving the frame that has the sharpest focus.
3. Electronic Vibration Reduction: This system digitally compensates and removes blurs during image processing.
