The L610 is a cheaper camera. Apparently it works okay. The SX260 is has more features and is a bit more expensive. The Canon has received mostly positive reviews; apparently it is a better camera.
I am not seeing a lot of reviews for Nikon COOLPIX L610 16 MP Digital Camera maybe because it's new. Even on cnet there is a very small description. I am confused between Canon Powershot SX260 and L610. It will be great if someone can advice me.
