Great beginner digital camera!!!!

mdnc07, Ebay
1 November 2012
  • Summary: It was my 1st camera ever & very easy to use. I took many beautiful photos with it. I took over 14,000 photos with my 1st one before it died. I bought 2 more from eBay for pocket cams, that I don't mind beating up. Can't beat this camera, for the price!

Nikon Coolpix L3

c5ster, Ebay
29 November 2010
  • Summary: I really like this camera. I've only had 2 digital cameras with this being my second one so I don't have a lot of experience using very many other models but I haven't needed or wanted to. Can say this though, I really liked the larger view screen on the L3 than my previous camera. The only downside I though was it not having the smaller viewer.

Shipping Troubles with Nikon Coolpix

jamesdgrooms1, Ebay

  • Summary: Do NOT ship this type of Nikon with the batteries installed. The ON-OFF switch is very sensitive and can cause the lens to try to extend while restrained by shipping materials.

Well-designed, good picture quality

Walter Nissen, Amazon
18 June 2008
  • Summary: Unlike many mini digital cameras, the Nikon L3 is set up to be easy to use. The 3x optical zoom is a simple rocker switch, positioned so that it's accessible while holding the camera with one hand, as opposed to the awkward combination arrow pad / zoom arrangements on other cameras. The menu is set up so that the most common options are displayed first, rather than forcing you to scroll down through innumerable pages.

L2 is sharper

OldEngineer, Amazon
18 June 2008
  • Summary: The L2 and L3 models are twins with a shared instruction manual. For some the more expensive L2 may be a better choice. At a camera store I made several identical shots with both cameras and the L2 produced consistently sharper images when zoomed in on the fine detail of ordinary shots. (Using readability of distant text to judge sharpness of jpg images saved in the largest file size.

A good buy

A Reader, Amazon
18 June 2008
  • Summary: I waited to review this camera until I'd really put it through the paces on a 10-day trip to Paris, where I used it in pretty much every conceivable scenario: indoor, outdoor, sunny, cloudy, closeup (macro), high zoom, videos in the day and night, etc. I've explored all of its features at this point, including all of the scene modes (panorama included). This is a good camera. To my thinking, the single best feature is the "D-Lighting" option.

Easy To Use

Overstock
24 April 2008
  • Summary: The thing we all don't like is that it doesn't have a viewfinder and the screen is not easily seen in daylight when outdoors. Somehow we didn't realize that when we read about the camera online. The camera is very easy to use. We bought one for each of our children (ages 7 and 10) and they figured out on their own how to use this camera without even reading the manual.
