Nikon Coolpix L18 Reviews

Steve’sDigicams reviews the Nikon Coolpix L18 and writes;
“Video quality is also “Ok” from the L18. The sound was clear and the video itself runs smoothly. The color is good but there is a lot of grain throughout the video…. Overall performance was decent for a camera in this class, but image quality is lacking a bit. ”

InfoSync reviews the Nikon Coolpix L18 and writes;
“The Nikon Coolpix L18 generally takes pleasing photos, especially if you use its ‘vivid’ color filter. The lens’s performance was very good – we saw little to no blooming or fringing – so the L18 is a good choice for clean photographs without much distortion. ”
Rating: ★★★☆☆

GoodGearGuide reviews the Nikon Coolpix L18 and writes;
“Image noise was somewhat tough to measure, as the camera doesn’t allow you to manually adjust ISO. We were forced to simply let it default to automatic ISO, which produced some fairly noisy images.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

ThinkCamera reviews the Nikon Coolpix L18 and writes;
“Image quality may not be too hot compared to more user-controllable compacts and lags way behind the best compacts and DSLRs of course, but it’s also way, way better than the pictures any cameraphone can deliver, and that’s what it competes against. ”
Rating: ★★★½☆

LaptopMag reviews the Nikon Coolpix L18 and writes;
” We were impressed with both the video quality of the L18 and how easy it was to make a movie. Videos can be shot in VGA (640 x 480) resolution at a full 30 fps, and 320 x 240 at either 30 fps or 15 fps. ”
Rating: ★★★☆☆ reviews the Nikon Coolpix L18 and writes;
” A great camera when it comes to ease of use, but I have to admit to being disappointed with both the picture quality I managed to produce from this camera and also the shutter lag times. In my opinion there are better digital cameras around for a similar price. ”

    I’m looking specifically for a manual for a red COOLPIX L18 which I received for a gift. I need very precise directions because computers lose me quickly. (Logic does not prevail in cyber smartz — other than being an old computer language, so far as I know).
    I’ve looked at many sites, which still don’t tell me how to use the arrows, when it will have one result to push the left button and when it will take me somewhere else, same button…thats how basic my ignorance is!
    I am so eager to tweak the shots, and then get into the video part, in all seriousness!

    A digital camera can store many mone pictures
    then an ordinary camera. A digital camera takes
    pictures by converting the light passing through
    the lens al the front into a digital image.
