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: 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 chose this camera as my birthday gift almost a year ago. I have been quite pleased with it so far. It's a good first time digital camera, and the user manual and settings are really easy to navigate. I buy lithium batteries, so they last longer.
Summary: I bought this camera as a Christmas present for my father. I've been the one who has used it the most. It is very user friendly and can be programmed in other languages. The pictures are so crisp! I get compliments on the quality of the pictures all the time.
Summary: i bought this camera 3 months ago and it was taking some really great pictures. Then suddenly, while i turned it on a week ago, it came up with lens error and made a weird buzzing sound. I have researched this problem and it has happened to many people. just google nikon coolpix lens error.
Summary: It's been a while since I've been motivated enough to bother posting a review, but I'm furious and fed up with Nikon's garbage. I originally had a Coolpix L11, the model one notch below this one. It worked decently enough for about a week, and then suddenly the camera would no longer turn on.
Summary: We bought this camera in May and it began having trouble with its lens cover closing in September. By October, it had become a real problem, but we were leaving on a trip with no time to get it fixed or replaced before we left.
Summary: I bought this camera for my 15 year old son's birthday. He had done all the research and decided this was the best for the money. I agree. The 7.1 megapixels for $130.00 is great! The only thing we have not liked about the camera so far is that it goes through batteries really fast.
