13 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Flash

The Coolpix L19 does not have a built-in flash, unlike most of the other comparable spec digital cameras that were released around the same time as the Coolpix L19 which have a built-in flash.

We compared all the other cameras which also have a built-in flash to this camera and we think the Polaroid IS426, or the Ingo VIC002O is also worth considering.
