"Had it for only a year and the screen is messed up."

  • Pros: Easy to use and set up.
  • Cons: Screen will only take pictures in zoom mode after barely one year of use. Nikon's on line customer service is horrible, they will not reply to my messages to help me.

Was working fine, until...

  • Summary: I bought my camera a little over a year ago. It was my first digital camera, and I was very happy with it at the time. Recently, though, the lens got stuck, and the LCD screen said 'lens error'. I followed the instructions which said to take out the batteries for a day, and put them back in. That trick worked for a few days, but then it got worse. Now, the lens is totally stuck and I can't do anything with the camera.

Hardly used but acts like its been through alot!

  • Summary: Bought this a a Xmas present for my teenager. He hardly used it for the first few months then recently took it on a camping trip. He took almost 200 pictures which look great but when he tried to download the pin connector wouldn't work. Cable did not fit well and it looks like the pins all bent over. Then the screen went blank also. I got the pins straightned and the LCD screen works again but the connector is shot.

Too Fragile to be a Kids Starter Camera

a mag, Amazon
30 December 2008
  • Summary: My 12 year old was really excited to get this camera on Christmas morning and had gobs of fun with it. She took it everywhere (in a fashionable soft case) taking pictures every chance she could. Loved it. Unfortunately on Day 5 of ownership she pressed on the LCD monitor too hard while cleaning it with a soft cloth. And that's all it took. The LCD display is now fragmented and unreadable. Without the LCD the camera is worthless Landfill Toast.

Very Fragile NIKON would not honor warranty

Kristen Peerman, Amazon

  • Summary: This seemed to be a good camera with good resolution. The Image stabilization is a nice feature. I have owned 3 previous Nikon Digital Cameras. The first two were first and second generation Digital Cameras. Both had sturdy build and produced good quality images. Then we received the Nikon Coolpix L6 as a gift. This camera produced good quality images and nice features on Camera.

Not impressed!

Jill Ruffalo, Amazon
29 October 2008
  • Summary: I owned a Nikon Coolpix L3 for a year or two, but it broke after dropping one too many times, so I figured I'd go for an updated version & purchased the L18. The exterior appearance is nicer (i.e. the color, size of screen), but nothing works as well as with my other camera. I always have to push the ON/OFF button several times before the camera turns on & I have to press the button to take pictures more than once, especially with the first picture I take after turning...

Don't waste your time

Jamal Khawaja, Amazon
31 August 2008
  • Summary: Incredibly slow shutter speed - I ended up erasing half my pictures because all that was left was background or landscape - the action had already left. A couple of times the gap between pressing the button and the camera actually executing was over 6 seconds.
