Despite the prestige camera maker's name of Nikon I can't really recommend this camera. Admittedly bought at a marked down price, I can see that it's equivalents from other makers were slightly better put together at the time.
Smaller camera's like this need anti-shake because otherwise too many shots are blurred. Th eNikon L11 Coolpix does not have it. (Also heavier camera's have a heft to them which means they are easier to hold steady in one's hands.)
It has a small lens and I really noticed the difference moving up from my 1.3M Pixel Olympus with a big fat lens. With lenses you really get what you pay for. But them I bought it because it was lighter and then my children could use it.
In terms of operability the 3-way switch between video, quickshot and more complicated settings shot is a real bonus. The menus are quite easy to navigate.
The other good things is the mini-usb connectivity and the use of fairly standard SD card for memory.
The zoom is useful for framing but the lens is too small ....
It was cheap and even from a prestige brand cheap means cheap.
I have taken some great photos with this camera and have had them enlarged to amazing proportions.
Its "PANORAMA" function is wonderful for taking great landscape photos
It has some other fantastic features for photography as well as on the spot editing. I found the "D-Lighting" function quite useful, for editing pictures taken in very dim light.
The only drawback that I encountered is that its focusing and processesing speed is painfully slow.
It is great value for money. 6.0 Mpix for this price is a steal.
Impressively high megapixel counts enable the COOLPIX L11 to capture images with captivating color and outstanding detail. Such capability also means images can be considerably enlarged, yet still look absolutely stunning.
Accurately measuring available light, the L11 automatically selects the best sensitivity setting. And with impressive sensitivity range up to ISO 800, it makes it easy to take great looking pictures in low light conditions.
Compatibility with AA-size batteries, which are widely available around the world, means users can go on shooting virtually anywhere without worrying about recharging or running out of power.
