Summary: Great camera works great. the vibration reduction is a good feature, it has some other cool features like you can set it up to take 16 pictures at once. it does video. I always wanted a Nikon I'm glad I got this one.
Summary: Thank you for sending the Nikon Coolpix so swiftly. It looks really nice. Would you happen to have the direction booklet that came with it? This is for my 8 year old grandchild for Christmas. Again, sorry for the delay at my end with my computer and internet problems. Happy Holidays. Rosemary
Summary: I purchased a Nikon Coolpix L12 to give as a gift to a dear friend who is not electronically-savvy. I had originaly given this friend a Nikon Coolpix P-1 and she NEVER used it because all of the features and functions intimidated her.
Summary: Overall a nice little camera by Nikon. It's compact enough to carry in a pocket or purse. It makes quality images if used properly. The anti-shake feature is good, especially if you have trouble holding a camera steady. Battery management is good. It uses two AA batteries.
Summary: I had my L11 for 2 years, and loved it. My Marine son needed a camera for use in the field, so I gave him my beloved L11. I mostly shoot with Nikon DSLRs, but like to carry a glove box camera for those unexpected photo ops. while on the road. I bought my L12 to replace my L11.
Summary: The Cannon Coolpix L12 is reasonable priced, impressive good quality, and has amazing ease of use. It is very feature rich with features such as face-detecting autofocus and optical image stabilization. If you take the time to read the manual the L12 offers a lot. It takes good videos as well.
