Summary: I find it difficult to fathom some of the negative reviews here on this more than capable camera. Here are my thoughts. For it's age it very good. I can get much better results with the default settings than my 10 megapixels Sony. The images are very stable, and the color and sharpness rendered are fabulous. Must be the superior Nikon lens. While it is a bit on the slow side while it records the image, this is par for the course for all battery driven cameras.
Summary: So my nephew is 12.. He wanted a nice camera, I find out he's scoping a $200 canon when I point out that I can find him something for $20. He gives me the look. I give him this. We got ourselves a deal boys.
Summary: great little camera for a smokin price. I do get teased about it being pink as i am a guy but works great and easy to carry on my goldwing!! this is the second nikon camera I currently posess. They really hold up well!!
Summary: Nikon Coolpix L-series: OK-ish starter cameras, BUT the USB (not a normal cable config) > PC is iffy depending on PC & install software CD. 75% of web blogs are full of acquire or power drain probs, or both! What works on my Dell LT fails on my HP tower, even good recharge Ni batteries & their (like memory card, not included in pack) recharger won't last as long as U hoped (off the shelf use 'n toss, or rechargers), a 4GB card hold more data than any battery (2-AA's)...
Summary: maybe for its time it was fine but i was told that the battery door does not shut all the way on all the models. hmmm well in my case its true,and im having a hard time trying to find a memory card,
