Nikon Coolpix L830angle camera - alternatives?

Jump to last reply

We are traveling to Croatia and one of the members in our group desires a better camera than the one on our phone.
He's interested in the Nikon Coolpix L830 for its affordability, (199.95) light weight, and optical zoom features.
I feel a wide angle lens or a camera that has a good wide angle built in, would be very much appreciated just as much as a telephoto would in Croatia.
I don't know technical camera lingo so I don't know if this camera has a good wide angle or good telephoto capacity.
It's great for its weight but it takes AA batteries which I heard run out quickly on this model, so maybe a rechargeable camera would be better.
Can anyone give us some good alternatives for a rechargeable camera with wide angle and telephoto properties, that takes great shots?
Thanks for your help.
