low cost camera. Great value for the money. Image is best when iso locked at lowest setting. Compare to Canon A570IS (which has 7 mp) this 4 mp camera has a better image. the Nikon L4 has much lower noise and better detail. Managed to take 10,600 pics to date and still working fine. Dropped it a few times and it survived well. (There is a nikon recall on a certain production date, see nikonusa.com) Problems: when locked at lowest iso (100) hand shake is a concern.

I've had this camera for six months now, and I must say it is a pretty good camera at first. It takes pretty good pictures, provided the light is right. I love the macro close up feature, but I'm frustrated with the flash. Also it takes beautiful pictures standing still in the daylight, but you'd better stand still until it displays the picture, least it blurrs, creating frustration when taking this camera on nature walks. http://i45.photobucket.com/albums/f73/fyrespryte13/whiteflowers-1.jpg ...

For the $99 I paid I'm pretty happy. On the positive side it's super compact, focuses fairly fast in bright light, has a reasonably strong flash, and the image quality is pretty good. Problems: On the downside it stuggles to focus in normal room light to low light, takes 3-4 seconds to start up, and takes 1-2 seconds to recover in-between shots. I can't really complain for the price. It performs better than I expected and takes good pictures in most conditions. Just don't expect good ...

Bought as a xmas gift for $80 (after google checkout). Constuction isn't great for lens cover or battery door. Played with camera for 5 min... No problems with focus even in low light. Image quality surprisingly good. Great macro too. Low noise and good color at 100% crop. Flash is a little weak and recharge is slow. Playback menu a little clumsy because camera thinks you want to edit the photo. Includes a few nice features like best-shot-selection, blur detection, and exposure ...

Our camera have been stolen on the first day of our trip in Italy. We then learned that burglar and pickpockets were very active... We went to a camera shop, look at the kind of camera I had and decided to postponed the replacement of my camera for a few weeks. You cannot go in Rome and Venise without camera so we bought a L4. Very easy to use. Online help on camera. My wife was so impressed by the simplicity of this camera that she decided to keep it for her!!! We brought back great ...

at $99 (staples) it was an easy decision, I also have a Nikon D200 and a D70 and no I don't expect similar results. Funy thing though, For work I frequently need to take pictures of equipment and wiring closets etc. My big cameras cause me lots of questions when I am on sites. So I wanted something for my briefcase or pocket that would go with less attention. It's results are perfect for what I needed!

I have owned the L4 for five days and tried just about every feature. The mode selection is trouble free and the "blur" notification prompts one to select a different mode. The flash is consideravly stronger than my Coolpix 800 which was unrepairable and this was offered as a replacement. Battery life is exceptional and the only negative is trying to get good contrast with close ups . Frequently the flash will wipe out features. Pretty happy with the value for the price.
