This camera had good quality, but can do what t wants.

Excerpt: I would have to say, this camera was great at first, but then it slowly drops is quality, my camera must of broke, because it spazzes out a LOT! This camera burns batterys...FaSt....it should take pictures faster, and it needs better video qualities. It may be lightweight, but very easy to lose.
Excerpt: My Nikon COOLPIX L18 is a good camera for portraits. It does not take great pictures of scenery; the color is never quite right. Pictures never look as good as the real thing though, and cameres that come the closest are much too expensive. It also has a relatively long lag time between pictures. It is a great camera for someone who wants to take pictures for the memories. I would not recommend it for someone who is into photography as a hobby, however.
Excerpt: Let me start off by saying that I do not actually own this camera, it is my sister who has it. I did use it a couple of times and the quality was not as good as it could be. Both of us noticed that it was somewhat blurry and the color was not, well, right. I mean it looks really cool but it didn't have that pixel perfect image that it should. Things can be better. Not only that, but I notice that the disc that it comes with makes your computer unbelievably slow.
Summary: This is a plain, non-technical review for an average user. I wanted a slim point-and-shoot that would produce fairly good images for max 5x7 prints... Well, this camera seems to only work well in good sun -which is a typical thing with many cameras...along with the impossible to see display ...I mean you cannot see what you are shooting in a nice sunny day, as the diplayed is washed out. The image quality is so-so.
Summary: I bought this camera in hopes that it would be a reliable camera to use on an upcoming trip abroad. I've only owned it for a few days, and I already have several complaints. First of all, not really relating to the camera itself, if you have a Mac, you might have trouble using the photo software that comes with the camera. I tried installing it twice and it crashes before I can even open it up.
Summary: Nikon is made in China. What a shame. This could be a fine little camera, but the quality of the case is "cheap" and the lens covers stopped working two weeks after I bought it. The camera is now in the mail to the Nikon service center. We'll see what kind of service it gets, and how quickly I get it back -- either fixed or a replacement.
Excerpt: A good all-round camera once you have 'found your way round' the controls/settings. The dire warnings about only using Coolpix batteries etc seems a bit over-the-top and since Coolpix batteries are not readily available everywhere, make the camera less attractive to the amateur [if the 'dire warnings are heeded about using non-Coolpix products. No camera retailer I have spoken to seems to know WHY this restraint is necessary and most advise ignorng it as a sales gimmick!
Summary: Camera de entrada muito boa, com estabilizador de imagem na lente VR. Fotos muito boas, pequena, e com partida rapida. O que mais peca e a falta do controle de ISO manual, faz com que muitas fotos sejam batidas com ISO muito alto, aumentando o nivel de ruido. E outra coisa ruim, o tempo de demora pra carregar o flash. No mais, camera muito boa.
Pros: Resolução, Qualidade das fotos, VR (o mais importante)
Cons: Falta total de controles manuais, ISO por exemplo, Lentidao na carga do flash
Summary: Hace dos años y medio que la tengo y en tras terminarse la garantía me dío bastantes fallos. En palabras de los técnicos de reparación de NIKON es por fallo del circuito de alimentación. "217,00 € + IVA" la reparación. Comentó que esta serie está hecha para durar pocomas de 2 años. No la compré, me tocó de premio, pero me he quedado sin ella.
