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.

  • Summary: Good camera, takes nice pictures but 7 months old and I get a lens error. After researching the error on line I am seeing so many complaints about it...with no solutions. Can't be fixed!

Blurry Action Shots

S. Petersen, Amazon
18 July 2009
  • 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.

SLOW

Andrew G., Newegg
17 April 2009
  • Summary: "It's lens makes it a Nikon..." Not really... My 4 megapixel Kodak took pictures fifty times as fast that looked ten times better.
  • Pros: Cheap... that's about it
  • Cons: This camera is horribly slow. It's not at bad when it's new, but it will get on your nerves as time goes. You'll notice that if Nikon point and shoot cameras are not focusing incorrectly or flooding the picture with ridiculously bright over-flash, the camera is ruining the picture by taking way t...

Not so good

Anonymous, Newegg
30 January 2009
  • Pros: Inexpensive & fairly simple to use. Takes pretty good videos & pictures do turn out fairly well.
  • Cons: Camera bosy feels like cheap plastic. Kind of slow when using the flash RMA- Broken after a week and a half of use, the lens stopped retracting. Camera body feels like cheap plastic.

Eats Batteries!

JMPIII "Average Dad", Amazon
31 December 2008
  • 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.

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.

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.

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.
