Summary: Nice prize and quality. The pictures it took we're excellent, and the videos too. Why I rate it so low? Before the second year with it, the screen stopped functioning one day. No known reason.
Nikon Coolpix L11 inexpensive, but you get what you pay
9 September 2012
Excerpt: This Nikon Coolpix L11 camera was great when I first purchased it. A couple of months later, there was a lens error. Nikon asked me to send it back, but turned out it just needed stronger batteries. Another couple of months later, the same thing happened and when I replaced the batteries with high power electronic device batteries, still an error. Sent back to Nikon and they wanted more money to fix than what I purchased the camera for.
Excerpt: I only ended up paying about 70 dollars (it was on sale, and then had some coupons) so it was good price, but it's not a very good camera either. The battery cover broke soon after I got it, and now I have to wrap a rubber band around the whole camera to keep it closed. The flash is way too bright. My camera phone takes better pictures.
Excerpt: While this camera isn’t bad many better options exist then this one. Many camera has more than 6 megapixels that this one has. This camera is great for the normal snapshot, but one thing that I found really annoying about this camera is that it has no viewfinder. While many don’t even use, and just the LCD screen I do want the options to use the viewfinder if I really want to. I think since the LCD screen always has to be on the batteries die quite quickly.
Summary: Bought this for around $80 on amazon, new. It is just that, an $80 camera. Has a hard time focusing and blurs a lot. I get an error message saying picture is blurry even when it is not. Small, compact, yes. Worth $80, maybe. Frustrating...
Pros: Coolpix L11 takes good pictures for a $100 camera.
Cons: Shutter lag is unbearable. Whenever someone else uses my L11, they say "Will, something is wrong with your camera." Pictures taken indoors are either blurry without flash or washed out with flash.
