  • Summary: But you can buy one online for $29.95. In my view ,it should either be provided or the customer should be made aware that an additional purchase is necessary.

Disappointing Image Quality

DorcasBlack, Nikon
29 November 2013
  • Summary: This is my 5th Nikon digital camera over the past 10 yrs, including two digital SLR bodies I use for better photography. Many times I can't or don't want to haul the SLR bodies and lenses, so I like having a small point-and-shoot camera, too. I got this L620 to replace a Coolpix L3 I bought in '08. I wanted a camera with better low light performance than the L3, image stabilization, and additional user control.

  • Summary: This camera was a gift, and what seemed to be a great camera in the beginning, quickly proved to not be suitable for our family. The still pictures...where your subjects are actually not moving, are excellent no doubt! However, we have 2 children under 4 and it's not easy to get them to sit still for anything. Every picture that has movement in it is blurry, so we miss a LOT of those memorable moments.

Eats batteries

JoeBob, B&H Photo
5 November 2013
  • Excerpt: While I was thoroughly impressed with this little camera in the beginning, I have to withdraw my recommendation because of its ability to eat batteries. It also has absolutely no low battery warning to give you time to change them before it dies. It also has the habit of just freezing up when the batteries are almost gone, giving you the impression something is wrong with it. It is sad as I liked the camera otherwise.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light
  • Cons: No low battery warning, Short Battery Life

  • Summary: The camera is great would give five stars if the description is accurate. The only reason i did not return this camera is because my wife is so happy with the picture quality.

Software is junk, camera okay

Pedsrn, Nikon
23 September 2013
  • Summary: The software that came with this camera is poor. When I tried to install it shut down my computer without any warning. I lost several files due to this unexpected shut down and when the computer restarted it was operating horribly, everything was slow and the CPU was at maximum usage. When I finally got the installer to work my computers antivirus system crashed (Norton mysteriously was missing critical files).
