Summary: I have no idea how the product works but I do know the seller EZCORP. I ordered used for my daughters birthday. They called the next day saying there was a mix up with the posting and that they would send me an "upgraded" version.
Summary: Don't expect any customer service when purchasing a camera from Nikon's L series. I would give the camera itself 4 stars, but Nikon's lack of service drops it to 1. This camera was purchased about two years ago as an inexpensive "starter" camera for a child.
Summary: I bought this camera to fill in the gap while I got my older Coolpix repaired (actuator problem). The old camera (which I have reverted to) takes spectacular images, as one would expect from Nikon. (I still have my old NikorMat and SLR lenses). Unfortunately the L14 is a piece of junk.
Summary: I hate to say this, but I own three of these cameras. I was attracted to them because of the long battery life, for I take a lot of pictures, and have two employees that also take lots of pictures of our work. I wish I would have tested the first one out more before I bought two more of them.
Summary: I don't understand why Nikon would put their name on this atrocity. This camera has an eternal shutter lag - any moving subject is long gone before the actual picture is taken. It also takes forever to power up.
Summary: Bought this for my grandson at Christmas 2007. It was used 3 times then we got an error message of "lens err msg". Contacted Nikon and they indicated that it was still under warranty, sent it in. Today I got an invoice for the repairs of $99.50.
Summary: Purchased the camera in December for my daughter. Camera worked for 4 months and then began the "LENS ERROR" and camera was bricked. There are several other posts with this problem. Sent the camera for service. Nikon has had it for 2 months.
Summary: I bought the L14, my wife was fairly happy with the cameras abilities. The picture quality is good and the ease of use is also good, time delay is a bit long so don't plan on any action shots, but when it comes to durability thats where Nikon falls way short.
Summary: When my coolpix L3 died after a series of falls, the time came for a new camera. I ended up with the coolpix L14 which looked very nice in blue and took AA batteries so that was great! Then the problems began....... The camera started taking the worst pictures I've ever seen in my life!
