The Nikon Coolpix L810 offers a lot of specs at a low price. If you need fast shooting performance, though, you'll need to spend more money.

I am Josh Goldman senior editor with CNET and this is a look at the Nikon Coolpix L 810. At -- L series models are entry level point -- which for an -- basically means two things easy automatic snapshots and double A batteries. With the -- ten -- icon packs in a lot of nice specs including an ultra wide angle lens with the 26 X soon. A large three's pirates LCD. And a sixteen megapixel CCD sensor. Plus you get extras like a second zoom control and -- -- a one touch record button for movies and hysteria might. Specs are nice and all -- they don't always translate to good photos and performance. The LE ten can turn out some good photos and movies when you have plenty of light but not indoors or in low -- And the camera shooting performance and auto focus is slow. So in the end at all you need is -- decent auto mode and a long zoom lens for shooting in daylight and your photos are going straight to FaceBook.
