Nikon camera

  • Summary: Not a good camera at all. charges the flash way too slow, drains battery life quickly and only lasted about 3 months before it stopped working completely. Buyer beware. You get what you pay for on this one.

Great idea but far form a Nikon

Dennis, Amazon
27 August 2013
  • Summary: I own some very expensive Nikon camera e.g. a D800 etc. I wanted this to stuff in my pocket and carry to parks or places for My wife to use or me without dragging the big gear along. I slipped and fell on my butt on a wet slope but caught myself with my elbows and empty hand. Apparently the shock did something to the camera because after that the lens would not focus or retract to off any longer. The camera never touched the ground or came into contact with anything.

Good for portraits

KsTinMan, Amazon

  • Summary: You may as well buy one of those cardboard one-time cameras. This is without a doubt the worst camera I have ever purchased. I guess you get what you pay for. I returned it in less than a week. I took a few portraits and they came out just fine. If your only purpose is portraits you may be OK. However, the focus is horrible for nature shots. I even tried using a tripod and then setting the timer. The photos were still terrible.

  • Summary: The camera worked for a few days but after that it would randomly start turning off on me even when I would replace the batteries. I would not recommend this at all.

not happy with this camera

illalwaysb29, Amazon
5 November 2012
  • Summary: This camera did not impress me. I had dropped my previous camera, a Nikon COOLPIX L18 which I had been very happy with, and had to replace it because the lens broke. I hoped the COOLPIX L26 was an upgrade when I purchased it. However, the zoom was inferior. When the zoom was activated before or after taking a photo it was very blurry. My photos were not as sharp. Amazon was very prompt in returning my money after I sent it back.

Very Disappointing

Katieb, Amazon
17 September 2012
  • Summary: I got this camera for two reasons, I love my regular Nikon and the price was great. However, when I got the camera, I was very disapointed. Right from the start I got a Lens Error when I was turned the camera on. I had brought the camera with me to a fair with my family and was disappointed because I was only able to take a few pictures because I got the Lens Error message every other time I tried to turn the camera on.

Blurs at least 50% of the pictures

Chris Hytrek, Amazon
16 September 2012
  • Summary: I got this camera because of its portability and it seemed to have some good reviews. Boy, am I disappointed! I have tried numerous setting and light condition, but half the pictures turn out blurry. Sometimes it doesn't take a picture right away, I have to press the button several times. I am now shopping around for another portable camera.

Unacceptable problems right from the start

Amazon Customer "Stef", Amazon
19 July 2012
  • Summary: The camera took fantastic photographs---when it felt like working. Starting a few days after I purchased it, the lens would refuse to open when I turned the camera on. "Lens error" would flash on the screen and it was impossible to operate the camera in that state. The only way to solve this problem was to remove the batteries, replace them, then turn the camera back on. This is not something I would expect from a brand-new camera.
