Nikon COOLPIX L820 Black 16.0 Megapixel Digital Camera, Model COOLPIXL820BLK

If you'd like a little something more than the typical point-and-shoot camera, without the hassle of a complicated DSLR, the black Nikon Coolpix L820 is a perfect choice. By combining professional-quality technology with easy-to-use Nikon Coolpix features, the L820 is great for everyday snaps, and just might be the best travel camera available for its size.

With a focal range from 22.5-675mm, you'll be able to capture stunning wide-angle vistas as well as far-away wildlife, all while the built-in Vibration Reduction keeps your shot steady.
