My Nikon Coolpix is the best camera I have ever had!
9 September 2012
Excerpt: Almost six years ago, my husband (then boyfriend) bought me my first digital camera. It was a pretty good one and lasted until this past christmas. Compared to my brand new Nikon Coolpix, I consider that first camera to be a dinasour!t It's funny how technology can change in a matter of only a few years. The Nikon does absolutley everything I want it to do.
Excerpt: My son uses this camera and he has taken great pictures from it. In general, this camera works well. The quality of the photos is outstanding for a non-SLR digital camera. The only drawbacks are that the zoom is not powerful enough, the digital zoom is too pixelated, and that the focus is inconsistent. In addition, sometimes taking photos in the dark or at night may lack quality.
Excerpt: i have had this nikon-coolplx l5 camera for a few years and i must say i love it it works well and takes great pic i also like that it run on battres and with the new ones out today it last a good long time.i also llike that it is easy to use just point and shoot it that easy .
Summary: The Coolpix L5 is a great camera for the price. The fact it user AA batteries is a plus. Is seems to shoot well in lower light situations. Also a plus is that the image size is not too huge so it can store a good number of photos on a 1GB SD card.
Summary: I have had a Coolpix L5 for a number of years and recently the memory card broke into pieces (not a camera issue) when reinserted into the camera (it had been used a lot). In the process some of the card parts lodged into the card reader and shorted it out. Looking for another Coolpix L5 for replacement parts turned up this item ($20 including shipment, a great value). When it arrived I found it was in better shape than mine showing far less wear.
Summary: I misread the ebay listing that I bid on... thinking the camera could do better than it does. It's an OK camera. My biggest gripe is that it has such a lag (of several seconds) between pictures. It just seems slower than I thought it would be. But then again, it's several years old as a model and I didn't realize that at the time I bid-won it on ebay.
