I do not recommend this camera. For the money, it is not a great value. Pentax M20 is cheaper, faster and better imagequality. Problems: LCD is not clear. Buttons need to be pushed twice to work. There is no battery indicator on the LCD. The lense moan and groans as the camera turns on. There is NO ISO control.

I bought the 5l at the suggestion of the sales rep so that my Dad could take a couple of pictures when he was planning to go on vacation…he had the camera for just one day before leaving. He was 80 and had not used a digital before. The pictures he took were stunning. I could not have asked for more. I have used it since, and I found the panorama assist to be great. For the indoor pictures, I prefer not using the flash. The ISO variable setting assists a lot in bringing out the color in ...

This is my fourth digital camera, the last one was a pocket size Sony which was terrible with red eye. The Coolpix L5 is much much better and I love the vibration reduction (VR) feature; it works ! It's very user friendly and uses AA batteries recheargable and standard. Contrary to critics re memory card, my 2 gig card works. Problems: non so far

Absolutely the low watermark of Nikon digital camera offerings thus far. Almost lost my faith in Nikon with this one. Problems: No focus lamp, poor low light performance, weak flash, washed-out colors Recommended for outdoor use only.

One camera i regret buying. Image quality is so-so. (Not great for a Nikon 7mp camera). No manual controls so the camera automatically picks the ISO which results in Noisy images in low light situations. The recharge time if you are using the flash is horrible. Taking pictures quickly is impossible with flash. Also very low res LCD which is not a big issue. I do like that it does have Nikons IS (Vibration Reduction), 5x zoom in a semi-compact camera, pretty powerful flash, and Image quality ...

If you are looking for a camera simple to use with good zoom and good image quality. This camera is just for you. This camera don't have the 10X or 12X zoom a reflex camera can give you but with the L5 you have portability and with little practice a lots and lots of awesome picture. And the price is just sweet. Maybe a pro see some noise here and there, me I've never seen any and I believe that if you are not a pro you'll don't see any. Problems: There is four majors drawbacks with this camera:

Although I find the camera very easy to use, constructed well and like it's over-all features the deceptive advertising that goes on when buying the camera made me mad enough to almost take it back. Nowhere does it tell you that it will not take the high speed 2 GB SanDisk chip so naturally I picked one up with the camera. It isn't until you get home you find out after reading through the manuals that it will only take the 1 GB chip. Oh, you can use the 2 GB chip in the camera but you'll ...
