Ok but you get what you pay for


It's ok

The pictures don't come out very well a good bit of the time. You almost absolutely have to use the flash to even attempt at a good photo

No Good


If this was a car it would have been recalled by Nikon, I do not understand how they can still sell it with a clear conscience.

It was cheap

This camera has a nasty flaw of exhausting yoru batteries very quickly, sure it is usually fixed by turning the cam off then re insert batteries, but you dont want to be doing that when you are out there snapping pics

Nikon Coolpix L26 Black 16.1 MP 5X Optical Zoom Wide Angle Digital Camera, Everything You Need Kit, 26298


Small, easy to carry & handle, Easy enough to use if you're not "Camera Smart

Few buttons on the actual camera, so you have to play around with the menus a lot to change things

Simplicity is Its Strength


I'm familiar with the L series from the first L18. I was attracted to it because I needed something that was quick and very easy to use. I also did not want the bother of a battery charger, so the AA battery configuration was a big plus.

user friendly, Portability/Compact, value for money

picture quality

Just what i have come to expect from Nikon. Delivery was fast and everything was intact. This is a camera that takes awesome pictures and video!

Nice compact digital camera for the money


I had a similar model that malfunctioned, so I was looking to get something similar. i.e. compact, easy to use, low cost. This camera really fits the bill. Took a little while to get use to all the shooting modes, but for the money you get awesome...

This is our second (alas, they are not indestructible; they WILL break if dropped with the lens extended). Simple and intuitive to operate; easy to learn. Great picture quality, legendary Nikon performance. Selected this model specifically for its use...
