Amazon Customer, Amazon
2 December 2014
  • Summary: Nikon has always been a great product but recently their 'non-professional' consumer products are lacking in quality. The zoom lever on this camera stopped functioning a mere few days after my purchase. This was a replacement for the same model I had been using for just over a years time when the battery door latch decided it no longer wanted to stay closed. Poor product quality in this average consumer product line.

Underwhelmed.

Kindle Customer "Raver", Amazon

  • Summary: With all the four and five star reviews, I was expecting something nice. This camera takes pictures, and that's about all the good I can say about it, so far. This is a preliminary rundown of the faults I've found since getting the camera yesterday: The AF hunts constantly, even if the camera is locked in a tripod and pointed in exactly the same place. Textured surfaces give it fits.

  • Summary: This camera takes decent pictures. HOWEVER... I bought it at a sale price from Amazon, and now I know why the price was so appealing. I'm guessing they wanted rid of this product. It devours batteries at lightning speed. Video quality is not bad, as long as you don't need more than maybe 90 seconds of footage. I put two brand new batteries in camera. Shot 8 or 10 ten-second videos at a football game, and the batteries were sucked dry.

Poor battery life

SR, Amazon

  • Summary: I went through a new set of 2 AA batteries everyday that I had this camera. The charge would plummet every time that I would take a video. I did not have this camera very long for this reason. Other than this the quality of the pictures seemed decent for a $130 camera.

Not good for families

Shawna Russ, Amazon

  • Summary: This camera only uses regular batteries that drain very quickly and its slow. By the time it takes the picture our 17 month old has already moved. We bought this take capture her life but all we are getting is blur. Wish we would've spent more money the first time so we aren't stuck shopping for another camera already.

OK pics sometimes, built like cheap junk.

  • Summary: I bought this for my wife because she wanted something that takes good close-ups. This camera does take good pictures SOMETIMES. However, in some natural lighting situations , the camera seems to change the color of the subject, usually with a yellow hue; I've had silver turn to gold, other colors just look dull. I can take the same shot in the same lighting with my iPhone 4s and it looks perfectly natural. And those close-ups?

Deceived

Oscar, Amazon
21 December 2013
  • Summary: This camera has a big problem. It uses batteries too fast because the led screen, which wouldn't be a problem if it would accept rechargeable batteries. It doesn't take them because rechargeable batteries do not reach 1.5 volts when fully loaded and the camera demands such voltage. I don't have the time to exchange for something better. Never more Nikon. I've wasted my money.

Good camera but the "Batteries Exhausted" message seems to be a problem

awebbiz, Amazon
5 December 2013
  • Summary: I returned the Nikon Coolpix L620 I ordered because it kept giving an "exhausted batteries" message even when the lithium batteries were good. It goes through batteries very quickly. I'd suggest rechargeable batteries and charger purchase to go with it. Other than that it took great photographs.

short battery life

Minou C., Amazon
29 October 2013
  • Summary: The camera was a little heavier than I expected. There is a delay in almost all functions. The battery life lasted 2 days while we were on vacation in Europe. We had to replace the batteries every two days. I would not recommend this camera.
