Summary: Great mid priced cameras takes awesome photos. Some of the settings are a little different than what I am used to. Once you learn the menu system though, it goes back up to 5 stars. This camera can go around your neck or in a bag. Not as easy to put in your pocket. but I didn't buy it for portability.
Summary: I am not a great photographer and I appreciate that this camera is not all that complicated. I admit that like other reviewers I was at first a bit disappointed because the pictures were not as good as I had expected. I had trouble with the different settings and even had trouble lifting the flash. Then one day I was out and my 19 year old daughter grabbed it and took some of the most amazing pictures.
Summary: I bought this camera for my photography class in college around last christmas (2009). To me this camera suits it's purpose. The modes that the camera has allows you to take a wide variety of pictures without having to adjust any major settings. The design is awesome, it is awesomely easy to hold because of the grip. The only thing that I have problems with is zooming in on something that is partially close and the outcome is blurry.
Summary: The Nikon L100 I just received appears to be just what I wanted - compact, easy to use, and I'm sure it will take beautiful pictures. Amazon has displayed other items designed to work with this camera. Beware, however, of the Transcend flash memory cards -- they do NOT work with the Coolpix L100 camera. The Nikon website and user's manual both state that there are only 4 "approved memory cards" for this model - SanDisk, Toshiba, Panasonic and Lexar.
Summary: This is an excellent advanced compact camera. I bought this a day before a cruise I took all across Oceania and it worked like a charm. I just have to say that the one day shipping is excellent as well. The things I'm disappointed with on this camera are: 1. When the camera is zoomed all the way out, it will not focus on anything.
Summary: I got this camera after I returned Canon Digital Shot SD1200 IS 10MP. I must say that this camera is much more better than Canon SD1200 IS. I got this camera for 179 only but now it being sold over $200. The cameras size is good, portable and screen size is pretty good also. The camera takes good pictures but not crisp clear. If you look picture in normal size you will find it very clear but if you zoom in then you may find a grainy picture. In my view its not a problem.
Summary: Haven't owned a camera in 30 years. My last was a Fugi SLR film camera which I was getting better with before I moved to Florida where it was too hot (for me) to do any darkroom work. So, I quit. Lately, I began getting interested again...the wildlife I encounter all the time sparked my interest, again. Really, it was a bald eagle in a dead tree which let me get close enough to get about 8 shots with my cell phone camera. None of them were viewable.
Summary: It's a good long zoom camera that takes decent pix once you figure out what the scene modes do to enhance the picture. Seems to do well in normal indoor lighting situations without the flash. The video is pretty good quality for uploading to FaceBook or YouTube and fairly clear even at a long zoom if you get it focused before you start recording the video. The sports mode works well with multiple pix taken at one time. For the price - it does fine.
Summary: This is a Great Camera. I read the reviews after I purchased it. I agree that after you take it out of the box and just start shooting pictures, they may not come out very good. That is why you HAVE TO READ THE MANUAL! After reading the manual, I LEARNED how to take great pictures indoors, outdoors, low lighting, high lighting, it all does fantastic. The pictures with this camera are perfect! Very bright, sharp, detailed, etc.
