If your phone just isn't doing it for you when it comes to photos, a point-and-shoot can be a sensible step-up. But when most decent compact cameras come in at over $200, it's tough to justify spending the extra cash—especially when you get so little in return.
With that said, that's where the Nikon Coolpix L840 ($199.99 MSRP) has a lot to offer the right shooter. While it's as basic a bargain-bin camera as you can get, it does a lot with what it has.
