hate it

tiff "tiff threlkeld", Amazon
20 February 2007
  • Summary: This camera takes decent pictures but it has a lot of problems. I have two small kids and it's hard to get a picture of them unless they are standing completely still. The shutter speed isn't fast enough, reload is too long after the flash goes off, don't even try to take a picture with the flash...

dont drop this camera

Doctor 3D, Amazon
6 February 2007
  • Summary: aside from other issues mentioned, the biggest problem is: the lens on this camera is suspended internally on some kind of sensitive spring mechanism and its super easy to dislodge. within 1 month of owning this camera .. it was dropped a short distance and the camera instantly became a doorstop ..

Lens won't retract. Terrible service from Nikon

J. Kaslow, Amazon
29 November 2006
  • Summary: Camera worked fine initially but when battery died the lens failed to retract. Tried everything the manual said to try without success and then sent in camera for repair. Took them a week to even acknowledge receipt. Called twice to find out status and get a service #.

Nikon L3 - great outside, lousy inside

Richard C. Clark "richardcclark", Amazon
8 October 2006
  • Summary: Wow Nikon missed the mark with this one. The menu is just crazy - feels like a marketing guy on steroids put every conceivable ridiculous feature imaginable into this camera. The flash is worthless.

Disappointed in Nikon

S. Wilent, Amazon
10 June 2006
  • Summary: As a newspaper editor/photographer, I've always had a high regard for Nikon products. I figured the Nikon Coolpix L3 would be a great pocket camera for my wife. I was wrong. I bought the camera at a retail store, but took it back the next day.

Closer to a toy than to a real camera

Monica Graham "Monica", Amazon
27 May 2006
  • Summary: We bought the camera based on the good brand name, small size and 5MP capability. It has been a complete disapointment. The 2 "AA" batteries run down very quickly, the quality of the image is terrible, the autofocus works randomly. It is just a bad product.

  • Pros: Its small
  • Cons: Picture quality is very poor
