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.

Summary: I bought a Nikon L12 and it lasted one week - just died! I sent the camera back to Nikon. They refuse to replace my camera or fix it. Don't buy any Nikon products. I bought it because of its AA battery capabilities because its hard to find electricity in many outback places - but after one week all...
Summary: I bought the L12 because I saw my son's L11 and I liked the camera. Both my son and I have problems with the lens that make the camera useless at this time. The lens went out and is stuck in that position (don't tell me to change the batteries, we tried).

Excerpt: Die Nikon L12 ist einfach nur SCHEISSE. -Akku entlädt sich über Nacht -Störgeräusche -Dauert ca. 10 sec nach einem Bild befor wieder einstzbar -Bildqualität undenkbar schlecht -jedes Bild hat eine andere Qualität Die Cam ist eigentlich nur zum wegschmeissen geeignet
Excerpt: Juni2007 habe ich eine L12 gekauft, weil sie eine hohe optische Leistung hatte. SD-Karten bis 2GB paßten, nicht jedoch 4GB HDSC. Die zweite L12 konnte nun schon 4+8GB, aber: Ab dem 2000. Bild funktionierte auch hier der Autofokus nicht mehr für höhere Brennweiten des opt. Zoom.
Pros: Kurzzeitig gute Bildqualität, Akku hält bis 3h20 bei Video
