Last year when we reviewed the Nikon L100, we found that ... there were quite a lot of things to criticize...&nbsp; so we were naturally curious to find out if its successor, the Nikon Coolpix L110, addressed the issues we had with the older model."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1279135197.usr19541.jpg" style="border: 0;" /></p><p>The Nikon Coolpix L110 comes with a famous name brand, and a fairly impressive feature set given its sub-$300 (US) price tag. In addition to the features noted above, the L110 offers High ISO (up to 6400), Nikon's "Best Shot Selector" (which saves the sharpest of up to 10 shots), and promises up to 7 hours of HD movie shooting with lithium AA batteries, while retaining the ability to use regular AAs if needed. The Photography Blog review goes into great detail, and gives the L110 good marks, particularly for Value, although they still find a few areas that could use improvement. The L110 stands at the top of Nikon's "Coolpix Life Series," which consists of 4 models intended to balance enhanced features with relatively low cost and simple operation, and might be a good match for a casual photographer seeking a step up from a basic digital camera. Experienced super-zoom users might prefer a model from Nikon's "Coolpix Performance Series," which add more advanced features - such as Manual Exposure ability - albeit in exchange for a higher price tag.&nbsp;</p>
