Summary: I purchased this camera as I was looking for something smaller than my old Canon PowerShot S45. The Coolpix is definitely easier to use and more portable. There is one major draback,however. The flash is too weak and makes the indoor pictures look too dark.
Summary: This is a great camera for beginners (like myself). It has many features I have yet to use after 9 months and is pretty simple to use. The only problem I have is the delay when taking a picture. It take a second or two before taking.
Summary: I bought this camera a little over a month ago from Target for $179.99. I really liked the design of it and the fact that it was small. I thought it took great pictures and the screen size was just right for me.
Excerpt: This was the first camera i bought and i still use it to this day. This is an amazing little camera and performs to an extremely higher standard than you may expect. A first sight it would look like just a normal, average family camera, but it can be used for so much more, especially for budding...
Pros: Light, Small, Easy - To - Use
Cons: Not a great zoom, setting take some getting used to
Excerpt: I bought this camera as my first camera and have had it for the best part of a year and a half now. Overall i think it is a great starting camera and good value for money. Its 5 megapixel camera makes it decent for shooting pictures of friends or family whether at home or out.
Pros: Generally decent quality pictures . small and easy to take everywhere
Cons: Some delay in taking pictures can leave them blurry
Excerpt: I was a big fan of Nikon, but this Nikon L3 really disappointed me. I still have a professional, traditional, film Nikon camera and the pictures are just great. I had then a Nikon Coolpix 2100 as a point-and-shoot digital camera and it was absolutely fine.
Pros: Great price for a 5 megapixels camera, good battery life, easy to navigate menu
Cons: Poor picture quality, bad shutter lag,indoor pictures very poor, poor flash and so on . . .
Summary: I got this to replace my old Canon Ixus. It's biggest flaw is that the power button is way too sensitive. It doesn't take much to accidentally turn it on and when it does the lens will try to open but it jams, draining the batteries to nothing.
