  • Excerpt: I had my Nikon Coolpix less than a year and the lens cover broke. Shutter would not open and am unable to get it fixed. The pictures I took were not of very good quality and had to purchase another camera for special occasions. Very disappointed because I had read the reviews on this camera and they were all good. At first, I had no problems with it, but now I am unable to even take pictures with it.

Very disappointing overall camera.

  • Excerpt: I have owned the Nikon Coolpix L3 camera for about 2 years now and have tried it in many different situations.  First, if you only want a camera that takes great close range pictures while outdoors, then this camera is well worth it.  The outdoor pics are amazingly clear for the camera only having 5.1 megapixels.  It also has Face-Priority auto focus, which is a nice bonus.  The camera is very slim and easily fits into your pocket.

  • Excerpt: I have my Nikon Coolpix camera for over 2 years now and although it served it's purpose very well, capturing the places and faces i see when i travel, i wish i could have bought another model from Nikon or probably from other leading brands like Canon. The reason for this is that it takes much longer to capture a shot compared to other cameras so that if you're taking picture of people, they have to wait a few seconds longer to have the picture taken.

Good although a bit slow

  • Excerpt: We bought this camera about three years ago and I've been only somewhat pleased with it. First the pros. I've been pretty pleased with the picture quality of this camera. However, I don't try to pretend I'm a photographer and neither do I enlarge pictures. I'm suspicious if I did I'd be very frustrated with the quality. I've found the Nikon Coolpix L3 easy to use. I'm fairly tech savvy but not incredibly so and this camera has been easy for me to navigate.

  • Pros: -Durable/well built -Nice included features -Easy to use
  • Cons: -small screen size -fairly short battery life(but that mostly depends on the battery type) -when not enough light is available, the pictures often come out blurry -a little expensive for what you get

  • Excerpt: Love this camera. Being that it was affordable, and by Nikon was a big plus for me. My daughter and I love to take alot of outdoor photos. We bring our camera with us, everywhere we go. This camera is compact to fit in your purse, or even your back pocket. There are so many amazing features, from close-ups, to sunsets, indoor,museum, landscape, portrait, sports, fireworks, to even taking great photos at night. The list is endless, and all at the touch of one button.
