Excerpt: This camera is great for the price. I paid $129.00 for it. The controls are super easy to run. It takes nice clear pictures and video. I use it several times a week. The only thing is that it uses up the "AA" batteries really quickly. I thought that it was be convenient to have "AA"'s but in the first week that we had this camera we used probably four sets of batteries.
Excerpt: The nikon-coolpix L12 digital camera is great. It does everything! I have kids and love to capture every moment. It has a setting to catch them in motion. It has high MP so the pictures turn out beautiful and it also lets me record video. I can make my pics blak and white, sepia and all kinds of other options. I am so glad I chose this camera!
Nikon-Coolpix L12, Nice camera for the inexpensive price.

Excerpt: The Nikon Coolpix has 3X zoom, 7.1 megapixels, VR Vibration Reduction, 2.5" LCD and ISO 1600 High ISO (whatever that means). There isn't a lot of extra features with this. When I went looking for a camera I was totally over whelmed by all the features that is why I decided on this camera. I only use it to capture memories. I am not a photographer. So this is just perfect for me. It took a little bit to figure it out but I did and I was good to go.
Excerpt: Nikon cameras are reasonably priced, lightweight, compact, and have high quality lenses. I have had good luck with mine and would recommend it to others. The pictures I have taken are clear and sharp. The only disadvantage I have seen is the zoom is limited as this is a smaller, compact camera and the flash function often glares. My parents have a sony compact digital camera and the flash function seems to work better without the glare my Nikon seems to have.
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. I thought I would be happier with the L12 because of the dedicated VR and Portrate buttons, and slightly higher resolution.
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. The L12 features a slightly below average quality f2.8-f4.7/5.7mm-17.1mm (35mm – 105mm equivalent) all glass 3X optical Zoom-Nikkor lens.
