Nikon Coolpix 2500
|Half of the camera twists; the outer frame doesn't.||The swivel lens and stable outer frame mean you don't need a lens cap.|
Toy with the self-timer, movie mode, and flash settings via multifunctional buttons on the 2500.
The 2500's start-up time isn't great, even with the included 16MB Lexar CompactFlash card.
It does a fair job handling close-up shots.
Auto white balance is fairly bad under indoor lights.
Images tend to be noisy.
