Still ticking almost 5 years later I purchased this camera in October of 2008 and still use it all the time. It gives me great photos still....I am taking it on vacation and might be leaving the slr home April 27, 2013
Best camera I've ever owned! I've owned and used many cameras in my life, and none of them produce the same quality as my L18. I'm badly wanting to upgrade to at least a D3100, but the L18 is doing very well for now. I'm just starting a photography business, and my L18 is what I'll be using until I can afford the D3100. And I know that I'll be able to provide my clients with good quality pictures. :) September 18, 2011
excellent camera i have been using this camera since last two years its image quality is excellent.I am in no mood to upgrade my camera .i have captured full 3 hours video in excellent quality .one thing i firmly believe by using this product that nikkon mean quality. August 8, 2011
Unbeatable I got my L18 by coincidence. My prior expensive Casio camera, was stolen from my car. I got this one as a used condition camera, since I didn't want to spend as much as I did with the one I had, and I can say that I am glad my Casio was stolen. my used L18 take way better pictures and is so easy to use. My goodness, I never thought I would be happy to be stolen. Even the price for the brand new, would be worthy for any one. June 22, 2011
Awesome!!! I bought a 12 MP Kodak Camera and then I purchased this little awesome Nikon. What a difference. I had been using Kodak my whole life and now I will never go back. This camera is only 8 MP and take way better and clearer pictures. I am recording both of my babies lives utilizing this camera. Thank goodness for the Nikon Seriously!! October 17, 2010

Exposure adjustment & focusing

Hello. I have some questions about my three-year-old Nikon CoolPix L18.

I might have the wrong term, but is there a function other than "sport" that allows the exposure (length of time to take the image) to be adjusted, such as for clear images of moving subjects? I don't mean "exposure compensation" (light/dark). I am curious because "sport" does not allow some settings to be adjusted, such as "white balance."

Also, I have difficulty sometimes trying to focus a subject (occasionally focusing on the wrong things or just being blurry), especially while using the close-up function and while photographing some indoor or dimly-/oddly-lit places (like some museum displays or the night sky with the moon).

Do you have any suggestions? Thanks.

Answer: 
Scenes modes on the COOLPIX L18 are already pre-set. White balance can only be set while shooting options is set to Auto mode. In the Shooting Options you have Continuous that can be set to Single, Continuous, Best Shot Selector and Multi-shot 16. Please see page # 67 of the user's manual for the COOLPIX L18 regarding Continuous shooting.

Answer: 
After 20 years in the Photo Retail Business, I can say without even looking that the problem you are experiencing is most likely due to the lens getting bumped while extended. I'be seen this a gazillion times from every camera brand on the market. The impact didn't have to be very hard if it was at just the right angle. The telescoping lens barrel sleeves have been knocked off track, and will not permit the camera to focus properly. The small focus gears are no longer aligned, and will need to be re-set, that is the noise you hear. Nikon can repair this for you, but unfortunately since it's user-caused damage, it won't be covered under warranty.

Follow the instructions on this page to send your camera to Nikon for repair.

http://www.nikonusa.com/Service-And-Support/Nikon-Service-Information.page?goingto=inc_service

Sorry for your bad luck, hope your camera comes back quickly from repair.

If you're clumsy like me with your camera, you might want to consider the AW 100. It's built to be tough and waterproof as well. The lens does not extend outside the camera, so you'll never again bump it off track.

Cheers
