Nikon is going to release COOLPIX L30, a digital camera on Jan 30. The COOLPIX L30 features a CCD image sensor, 20.05 million effective pixels in resolution, optical 5X zoom NIKKOR lens (an equivalent focal length of 26-130mm in 35mm terms), and 3-inch TFT LCD monitor (0.23 million dots).

You can use AA batteries for COOLPIX L30 so if the regular battery suddenly runs out, you can easily buy AA batteries anywhere and start using the camera again.

In the world of cameras and optics, more is not necessarily better. Personally I'd prefer 25 or 24mm-equivalent wide angle and lens with f2.8 or so aperture for sharper pictures in low-light situations. Compact cameras with super zoom are very hard to stabilize at the maximum zoom settings.
