i know its really old, but i still really looove this little camera. anytime i need to have something small and convenient with me, this is the one i grab. in good daylight, this camera is amazing (for what it is..) i do a lot of off roading, and this little bad boy is perfect for quickie and blast shots. only upgraded because this is a very ametur camera, and i wanted more complex settings. but i do still love this one! Problems: low light (as with any p&s or small sensor camera)

The average casual photographer will not be dissapointed. Contrary to other opinion, this camera has plenty of speed and startup time. Pros: - Small and SLEEK - no knobby buttons or grips to get caught when slipping into a pocket. Easily fits a front or back pant pocket. Weight is mimimal enough for me to carry it in front shirt pocket. -Scene mode settings are nice and very extensive for on the fly shooting. -I've always been impressed with Nikon's LCD's - what you see on the screen ...

I bought this camera a couple weeks ago to capture this Chrismas season for kids. I took some pictures in the day and night. The image quality is good. RGB color is well stretched. The skin tone is fine. I usually use "night landscape" SCN inside the house and turn off flash light. The image quality is great (if I don't shake my hand). And I am happy with the camera with the price.

The image quality from this camera is very poor. The skin tones when pictures are taken inside with flash are completly off. The pictures in bright sunlight are ok but soft. The camera is compact, well built and easy to use but with very limited controls. I have a Nikon 5200 and 8700 and have compared the pictures taken with them against this camera. Nikon should be ashamed to put it's logo on this camera. Had bought this camera for my son but decided to return it and now shopping for ...

Bought this camera for my 7yo daughter who really wanted a camera to take pictures like daddy. I'm glad I didnt read these harsh reviews first since I like the camera for what it is and glad I bought it. This is not a camera for serious photography. This is a cheap camera that works well in taking good quality images and capturing video. I was quite impressed with the resolution even compared with a dSLR. It is easy to use and my daughter loves it.

I love Nikon. I have a D50 and N65, but wanted a point and shoot. I really wanted to love this camera. But the lag time was hard to get use to. It would lag if you used the flash, but without the flash, things would blur. Battery life was short. I actually spent $30 to return the camera. Problems: Lag time. Flash reloading. Batteries that came with camera had a short life.

Got this for my kids without reading any reviews or researching. Big mistake, very unlike me. Absolute waste of money. Features looked great, its a Nikon. I trust Nikon so i bought it. Oops. Terrible pictures. Not at all what you would expect from a 5.1 MP Nikon. The features are great but what do you really buy a camera for....thats right, Image quality. You really missed the mark here Nikon. Im very disapointed. Took it back the next morning 7 years exp. with digital cameras Problems: No ...

**Wastage of Money** This is my fifth digital camera and to say the least Nikon has totally disappointed me and performed very poorly. The camera is just wastage of money. Please mind that small size or fitting in a jeans pocket is not the criteria to purchase a camera. It takes hell lot of a time to start up. It takes ages to take a snap in Party mode..... will really embrass you. You can't really ask all to be in a picture position for ages. Flash takes ages to recharge and it just goes ...

I bought this as a walk around camera. It slips easily into a shirt pocket and uses alkialine, lithium or NMHi AA batteries. The L3 generally produces very good images. I love the D-light feature (in-camera processing of darker images) and the in-camera red-eye reduction works brilliantly. I carry this camera with me everywhere with me these days - it's so easy to carry and use. Start-up is fast enough for most situations, and image writing times are reasonable, for my style of photgraphy. ...

I bought this little fella because I was sick of carrying around my big, heavy DSLRs when all I need is a snapshot. All in all, I am pretty happy with it - it is easy to use, has good enough picture quality, and I can ALMOST trust somebody else to use it. Problems: Once the video mode is selected, there is a bit of lag time before a video actually starts being captured. Also, the recharge time for the flash can take a few seconds.
