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.
Summary: We've had this camera for one year. We've tried all kinds of settings, but we can't get good action shots. We've been so frustrated at our children's sports events. It seems impossible to focus on one person moving. We're pleased with the other features, but we'll have to look for another camera.
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.
Summary: This camera takes pretty good pics for the money, BUT it eats batteries even if it is switched OFF!...sit it on the shelf for two weeks and the batteries are dead. You cannot use rechargeables either...DO NOT BUY, but if you do, then buy a 100 pack of batteries.
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.
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.
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.
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.
