Summary: I like the photos, usability of the camera and its looks. What I didn't like was that within a year of buying it I started having trouble getting it to turn on. The zoom would emerge, but no image showed on the screen, and then it wouldn't recede back into the camera.
Summary: Horrible camera! Bad warranty service, every time I sent it over Nikon, it got worse, they never fixed it, instead Nikon sent it back not working, HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE. I sent the camera because the pictures I took had a black line in the middle of the pict.
camera broken after 4 months and Nikon has not repaired it

Summary: After 4 months the camera suddenly stopped working. Pressing the ON button would simply not bring the camera alive. After the standard troubleshooting procedure, i.e. double-checking the batteries, reading the manual and checking online forums, I contacted Nikon customer support.
Summary: It took some getting used to after being accustomed to looking through a view finder, and no longer having the option. Completely satisfied with the quality of the shots, even though multiple frames are often required to get just the right one.
Summary: this camera has delivered everything I expected and more. I've already taken on a cross country trip, from jersey to nevada (burning man) and let me tell you it operated flawlessly. great value for the price. way to go NIKON.
Summary: I really like how small and compact it is! with this camera I can finally take pictures of my little black Pom! At night it is nearly impossible to take with phone cameras! This camera is really easy to use too!
Summary: I bought this camera at a great price and it's almost exactly like the newer version. The only difference is 4x more zoom on the newer version. Produces very clear images and is very easy to use.
Summary: I like everything about the camera; but, I am not a professional photographer. The next model up offers 1080p resolution with videos; the 810 offers only 710p. It has a nice large screen that works well even in the sun.
Summary: I've been out of the camera scene for a while, so when I decided to get a nice camera I searched for the most megapixels for the buck. What I discovered when I purchased the CoolPix L810 (Spring 2013) is that besides 16.1 mp, I got a camera with awesome glass!
