Summary: This is the second Coolpix that I have purchased. The previous one lasted seven years and countless thousands of photos. I am a marine surveyor and was quite sad when my old one broke a couple of days ago. I only hope that the one that I have just bought will last the same amount of time.
Summary: Its hard to find a camera that takes regular batteries anymore! I work daily taking photos of properties and I don't have time to worry about charging a battery! Just keep a pack in the car and you're ready to go! Takes great pictures and super easy to use!!
Summary: I purchased our first L19 three years ago for my grandfather, who was 94 at the time. With the onset of dementia, his lifelong hobby of photography and home-movie making was becoming a major challenge for him (couldn't remember how to load film, how to transfer media, etc).
Summary: I bought this 8.0 MP camera because the 12 MP one I first tried caused grainy lines through each shot when displayed on my computer screen. I read a review that camera makers were producing too many high MP cameras and the shot-quality was suffering.
Summary: an excelent camera, what you get for the price is amazing! only $59.95! very cool, excelent zoom, the only problem is that you have to buy batteries (because it includes only 2 and aren't rechargable).
Summary: I bought this a few years ago and the color quality is amazing for such an inexpensive camera. Warm color tones. The settings are also really good to catch many different types of shots. The video is excellent, I think, compared to most other little cameras.
Summary: I have a SLR digital but it's too bulky to travel with often. I bought the Coolpix as it fits into my laptop bag and it's right at my fingertips. It's easy to use, although it's worth taking the time to study the user guide carefully. Uploading pictures to the PC is easy.
