Nikon Coolpix L10

We've given the L10 a grade of C.

Editor's Review

Small, simple, straightforward; these are the things users will love about the Nikon L10. It's not crammed full of unnecessary features or overwhelming specs. This 5-megapixel point-and-shoot camera is enough to take good photos that will print well with as little difficulty as possible. The L11 is a perfect shooter for casual photographers on a budget. If you feel like you need a little extra boost, the L11 has a slightly larger 6MP sensor.

Many problems; only lasted 6 months (Jo Kimms — 07/08/2008)

There is a very long delay which results in missing most shots (people get tired of waiting and think you're an idiot). There is a "lens error" problem with the lens getting stuck (you'll find hundreds of people writing about this problem) which has rendered my camera unusable after just 6 months), and it ruined a 2 GB memory card after my first download, and I had to purchase a card reader to download. Terrible camera. Not worth it.

Good Camera (js — 03/06/2008)

I took this camera in the month of Feb'2007. Campared to price this camera is excellent. It can be used to take leisure movie and in day light it gives good quality picture. On problem is the slow shutter speed as a result for second picture you have to wait for a few second which is boring. It looks nice and easy to operate. My kids loves it too because of its simple operation.

Viewer is blank intermittently and unable to take pictures (Youdont Know — 01/22/2008)

frustrating...not at all dependable of a camera...randomly, when I power it up to take a photo the view screen is blank - pitch black, which is what you end up taking a picture of. Tried the obvious fixes, and the user manual and internet posts are useless in troubleshooting. Avoid this camera, buy something reliable even if you have to spend more money. This is garbage.

Watch out for the screen (Richard Russell — 12/20/2007)

We bought one of these for my 16 year-old son's birthday and within 2 months the LCD screen was broken. He had it in the flimsy case and backed into something hard, but that's no excuse. There is no hard protective covering, just the bare screen. I would think Nikon would make a better camera (adding a 29 cent plastic cover to the LCD wouldn't be that difficult). I am trying to get them to cover it under warranty, but it will probably be a pay for repair.

I see there are several aftermarket screen protectors on the market, so that would be a good investment for anyone that has one of these cameras.

Good, except for software (Tom Jackson — 09/21/2007)

Picture quality is good, and the camera is easy to use. The only problem is that, when connected to the computer USB port, it demands that I install the Nikon software and USB driver. This is not the correct behavior; it should emulate a generic USB thumb drive, and not require installing anything on the computer. I already have photo software (I use GIMP) and I don't need to clutter the computer with proprietary stuff from Nikon.

Does about everything (Ray Beyer — 08/15/2007)

I've been a professional photographer since the early 60's so it may seem strange that I like these small inexpensive cameras. I am very tired of toting a bag of equiptment or hanging a heavy camera 'roung my neck. The Nikon does just about anything in the "usual" photos area. Family, vacation trips, birthday you name it. It has the red eye correction, set-ups for night, fireworks, museum, back light, panorama, sports, face priority, focus lock and multi shots. It shoots movies at a top resolution of 640x489 at 30 fps. Figure about 20 min of good video on a 1 gig sd card. Also plan on rechargeable AA batteries, although the regular batteries that came with it lasted for several days. The only feature I do not like is the close up especially with flash; massive overexposure. The instructions talk about staying 5.9 inches away from subject and using the telephoto/wide angle to compose the shot, but doesn't seem to help much with flash. Outside in natural light it's much better (for flowers and such use the "vivid color" mode: photos look like they are from 'National Geographic'), The camera seems quite sturdy which my old slr's share with them (from the 60's and still going strong) but protect the screen as they get damaged easily, like many digital cameras it has no viewfinder to use in leu of the lcd. (my common complaint) Final note, easiest digital I've found to get used to in a long while.

I Love My Nikon (S.C — 08/15/2007)

So far i have no problem with my nikon L10. It takes unbeliveble clear pictures and i love the fact that it is also a camcorder. This is my first digital camera but so far i am so impressed with it not only is it small and sleek it is cute and very easy to use, even my 7 year old son knows how to operate it. I rate this camera very higly and would advise anyone who is planning on buying a digital camera, to comsider Nikon L10 if not sure which and what product to buy.

I like this camera. (Sarah Lydia — 06/30/2007)

I have this camera =]
It's a pretty good camera.
But when it comes to using the flash it sometimes can be too bright and the picture might come out strange.
But once you get the hang of using this camera- which shouldn't take too long. It's good.
I'm sure there are better cameras out there but if anyone is looking for a normal, ordinary camera that's not too professinal...
Well, then this is the one.

Stay away from his camera (Cheryl Miller — 06/29/2007)

I bought 2 of these cameras Had to return 1 of them within 2 days I would take pictures and it would say there were no images. They gave me a new one got out into the parking lot and it did the same thing went back into the store the manager tried 2 more new cameras and they did the same thing the only one that worked was the display. It worked for 1 week now the lens got stuck will not retract> So this one will be going back tomorrow. The other 1 is still working but occasionally it will not turn off so I have to pop the batteries out. I think I'm going to return it to because I just don't trust it.
