Summary: This is the second digital camera I have bought through Amazon and the second one to break after a few months. This one was in a soft sleeve in my coat pocket. I brought it out to take a picture of my kids and the screen was ruined, completely useless. Prior to breaking, I wasn't all that thrilled with the camera. There is a delay in the shooting which leads it to the camera constantly asking "did someone blink?
Summary: Wanted to update my review of this camera. After 4 yrs. of owning it, it froze out of the blue and would not work. Lens would not expand, camera would not turn on. I would like to think that a camera would last a bit longer, so buyer beware.
Summary: Six months ago I bought this as a snapshooter, and that's about what it is. The size is handy and the controls are easy to understand and use. But the picture quality is nowhere near as sharp as I expected and some of the colors in the images can be over-the-top bright. The most infuriating thing is the battery life. Using good quality alkaline AA batteries, I'm lucky if I can get 50-60 pictures.
Summary: First of all I will talk about the camera, then about the POOR and irresponsible manner in which my order was filled. I had bought another Nikon camera a few months previous. It was a P50. I could not keep my Wife's hands off of it, so I bought here the L19. The functionality of the L19 seem okay. It just does not have the feel or the P50. Secondly, the picture quality of the L19 does not live up to that of the P50. It has disappointed us both.
Summary: Takes great pictures. But the slightest little mishap will cause a "lens error" and the repair costs as much or more than the camera. After owning it for 7 mos., it was on a dresser, @ 3 ft off the ground, and fell onto a carpeted bedroom floor. Never worked again. Several people online experienced the same problem. Nikon won't cover it under warranty either.
Summary: Che dire una buona macchinetta compatta funzionale che scatta foto da 8 mpx ma ha un grosso difetto: non ha la batteria al litio! Lo so, può sembrare una cosa da niente... Invece poi ti ritrovi a comprare continuamente batterie e la rimpiangi. Si perchè se use quelle ricaricabili quando non la usi si scaricano in fretta. se usi quelle non ricaricabili nel giorno che ti serve durano poco e oltretutto costano parecchio...
