Summary: All 5 members of my immediately family received this camera for Christmas a few years back. My father purchased them and each one ended up having a "lens error." These cameras are the worst! They all broke within a year. My sister;s 8 year old Canon brand camera is still working till this day.
Summary: do not buy this camera! this is my first Nikon, and will most definitely be my LAST. it takes about 10 seconds to even take the damn picture!! that may not seem like much, but when youre at a convention trying to take pictures of people walking, or even just celebs sitting down and slightly moving...you get a ruined, blurry picture. this camera is perfect if you are taking pictures of a rock. but anything that moves, worthless.
Summary: I decided to buy this camera for my daughter because of the reasonable price. I thought that we would be luckier than the people who ran into the "Lens error", shutter malfunction, Broken LCD... problems, but it turns out that this camera is very fragile and I made a terrible decision (for buying it and also for buying the extended warranty).
I bought it new in Feb this year. In May, the shutter did not function (close half way, and did not open).
Summary: This was a successor to our broken CoolPix L4 which only lasted 8 months; I don't know why I thought this one would last longer. Guess I was a sucker once again. With the L11, I forbade every family member under 18 from even touching it because the last one proved so poorly-built. And it still died - also of a cracked LCD screen - after less than six months.
Summary: I purchased the L11 just prior to a family vacation so I could get some nice snapshots. I was very disappointed. The vast majority of the pics we have taken have been blurry, under or overexposed, grainy or have had some other problem. The two biggest problems with this camera is the delay when you press the shutter button (to take a pic) and the poor focus control.
Summary: This seemed to be the cheapest place in the UK to buy the Nikon L11, even though it came from Pixmania. The delivery was excellent BUT Pixmania delivers from FRANCE and does not supply an English manual - Amazon do not state this anywhere! The English manual is available for a once only download from the Pixmania website once shipment has taken place. This is mentioned on the Pixmania technical details, very much at the bottom, NOT on the Amazon Website.
