"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.

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.

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...

Very Fragile NIKON would not honor warranty

Kristen Peerman, Amazon
29 October 2008
  • 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.

Don't waste your time

Jamal Khawaja, Amazon

  • 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.

Not a great camera

Marjorie L. Moniz "Marjorie", Amazon

  • Summary: The pictures has a lot of noise in them. I'm returning it tomorrow. Guess you get what you pay for! EDIT: To be fair I must correct my above review. I have had the camera for a month now.(Hubby convinced me not to return it right away) Took it on a trip to WDW last week and it did an awesome job with my photos. I found that using the anti shake degraded the photos. I turned it off, used exposure compensation (-0.3) and vivid color, set on auto.

Disappointed

L. Nguyen, Amazon
15 April 2008
  • Summary: I own this camera for two weeks now, buying it as a replacement for a 5-year-old Canon S400 (4MP) as the battery is dying, and it was not that good when new either to consider a replacement. The first few pictures I took from the L18 disappointed me but I gave it the benefit of the doubt citing my inexperience with Nikon products. After trying to like it for 2 weeks, I gave in!
