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!
Summary: I recently purchased the Nikon Coolpix L15 Digital Camera as a Christmas present. I also own and have always been 100% satisfied with my other Nikon cameras: the F3, N70, N5200 and D70s. The L15 in my opinion has 3 major faults. First, alkaline battery life is terrible.
Summary: All I want is a camera that I can carry in my suit pocket to take visual "notes." This camera seems like the perfect solution. I previously owned a Nikon Coolpix L11. I had it less than four months, carrying in my suit pocket. One day I found the screen broken, rendering the camera unusable.
Summary: Worst Digital Camera I have ever owned! Took 5 pictures on a set of batteries that were supplied with the camera then they were dead. Put in a new set and they were dead after 5 more pictures. Pictures were very grainy and color was off.
Summary: I've owned this camera for a month. 'Dud' isn't strong enough to describe it. It eats batteries. Can't pan with it - the image jumps all over the place. Very, VERY slow recycle. The double-flash is much too hot. What could Nikon have been thinking?
Summary: Bought this camera after returning a Canon that didn't perform as expected. This camera is horrible and was returned after only a few days of use. Pros: Small size, takes AA's, that's about it.
Summary: We've had a 2.0m Powershot for four yeaars(which we loved) and decided to get something smaller and light weight. Well, it's definitely smaller and light weight, but if you ever want to take a picture of anything, you better have all day. It takes about 20 seconds between pics.
