Excellent zoom super excellent performance
Hi.. I have been using digital cameras since 2005. I used the sony ones only. This is for the first time i bought some product of Nikon and i must say i am fully satisfied with it's performance.
The zoom is so very good.. this is called real camera...... People please buy cameras with such large zooms like 26X b'coz later on u'll realize that one of the most significant things to look in camera is zoom apart from MP.... I have not only liked this product but i would also recommend it to all the buyers to buy only the ones with max zoom ... and i had compared costs with 3 companies in canada but amongst all Nikon was the winner.

Good value for the money.
I still own the Coolpix L110 and between this camera and the L810, I noticed the difference right away in the feel and speed. The L-110 to me seems faster. You can go through your thumbnail pictures twice as fast when trying to locate a photo. It responds quicker when you touch the buttons. The 810 is just the opposite. They must have done something with the software for the L-810. The buttons are raised a bit on the 810. The 26 X zoom I find does not focus very good, when at it's 26X full zoom maximum, and many of my photos came put of focus and were lost. I find it a slower camera. Although it is a point and shoot, I have lost photo opportunities because of the speed. With the L-110 I got the photo. I have both of the cameras right here in front of me and I can certainly see the difference. The features are pretty much the same. A few new things on the 810 but they serve same purpose. Both cameras will get the job done, just slower than a Digital SLR.

The Nikon L810 is a beautiful camera. I've had it for two weeks and I'm in love. I have a passion for photography, and I'm just starting out. It offers great zoom up to 26x and even higher! The price is amazing, and I couldn't be happier. The closeup setting and pet portrait on 'continuous' shooting mode have to be my favourites. It captures such crisp, clear images, although I've found the zoom to be slower when moving the zoom in or out; as well as when using the closeup setting, on flowers or jewelry, it takes a while to focus on one object, I do hope it's just my camera though. I'm looking forward to being able to take photo shoots, and carry it around with me during vacations. The camera isn't very heavy, so it's slightly easy to take places. I would recommend this to anyone, preferably someone like me, who isn't ready for a DSLR, but still wants a long zoom; and crisp, clean photos.

Todo en uno, me gusta.
He leido varias críticas a esta cámara, pero es buena o no tan buena dependiendo de para que la quiera uno. En mi caso, me encanta, ya que se adapta a mis necesidades. Cuando se necesita zoom tiene un excelente zoom, cuando quiero fotografiar paisajes te da un excelente gran angular, cuando quiero tomar fotos a florcitas te da un buen macro. Yo que no estoy dispuesta a tener una cámara grande ni andar con varios lentes prefiero esta que una reflex, Me gusta que este todo incluido en esta camara de menor tamaño, insisto, todo depende de las necesidades del usuario, para mi esta bien.
Una queja que tengo es que a veces, en el 1% de las fotografías, no puedo enfocar bien por distintos factores (poca luz por ejemplo) y en esos casos desearia poder enfocar manualmente y ahorrarme el problema, pero en la mayoria de los casos enfoca bien por si acaso.

¡Versátil, eficaz pero sobretodo, sorprendente!
Soy un niño y esta cámara se la pedí a mi papá de cumpleaños, estuve ahorrando 1 año para poder completar lo que faltaba para comprarla. Esta es mi reseña:
Esta cámara me enamoró desde que la ví, la compré y me ha encantado, es tan versátil que bien puedes fotografiar paisajes hermosos y al ver la foto, recordarlo tal cual era, o tomar fotos macro realmente impresionantes. Me gusta mucho el zoom que tiene y la simpleza con la que la puedes manejar, me encantan todos los modos que tiene, en especial el de museo, que te permite tomar muy buenas fotos en lugares donde no se permite el flash y hay muy poca luz. Realmente es una cámara muy buena. :D
Aspectos en los que podría mejorar:
Incorporar más filtros de color.
Auto enfoque en el video.
La velocidad de obturación (incluso en el modo de deportes, la foto sale movida al tomar fotografías a cosas en movimiento).
La calidad del material de los botones.
Me encanta esta cámara, la recomiendo al 100%.

Bom custo beneficio, mas senti falta de alguns recursos básicos, como permitir ajustes manuais, tudo é automático, deixa a câmera limitada (deixar a camera captando a luz por 20, 30 segundos não há opção). O time pra disparo "sozinha", só tem uma opção de tempo também. Mas a qualidade das fotos é boa, e o zoom também.

Nice Cam for the $, But Lacking In Support and a prevelant problem feature.
This is a realty nice camera for the money. It takes great pictures and HD Video is amazing! I call it pretty much Idiot proof! It's auto setting can usually suffice for most situations.
I can only find 3 areas where improvement could make for a better product.
1. Support or lack of. One day after the purchase I shot some great video and was connecting the video cable to the TV and to the camera. I found a short in the cable and contacted support. They instructed me to return the camera to Walmart for a return. Which would have been ok except that I had purchased the last L810 that Walmart had in stock. I told the support person and they said that would be the only course of action available. So I'm stuck with purchasing an new video cable on a two week old camera. It comes across as a nickle and dime attitude.
2. The batter life was ok but the use of 4 AA batteries I found to be so inconvenient. Most cameras today have their own battery pack instead of having to make sure the 4 individual batteries are installed properly and having to worry about about dropping the batteries during replacement.
3. The battery door and latch is flimsy and it is just a matter of time before it breaks.
Such a disappointment for what could be a great camera. These are not new issues with digital cameras and it is surprising that a reputable company like Nikon would make such a nice product so cheaply.

Fotos Noturnas - Baixa Exposição - ISO Insuficiente
A máquina de uma forma geral é boa, mas não a compraria novamente pelo fato de fotos tiradas a noite dentro de lugares fechados devem ser apenas com flash, pois sem as fotos não ficam boas. O fato disso acontecer é que a exposição vai até 1600 (ISO), enquanto na concorrente mais próxima a Samsung WB100 vai até 3200 (o dobro), além do preço menor. As fotos tiradas com minha Finepix da Fujifilm que tem apenas 10mb contra os 16mb da Coolpix l810 tem praticamente a mesma qualidade. Comprei mais pelo nome e bela beleza, me enganei.

PROBLEMAS COM CARTÕES DE MEMÓRIA
Gostaria de expor minha insatisfação pois, já comprei 02 cartões de memória de 4GB pois a máquina informa que está sem cartão ou está danificado...Tentei formatar no computador e funciona, mas quando fui formatar com a opção da própria câmera, ele informa o mesmo defeito.......
Estou muito insatisfeito mesmo......
Gostaria de saber qual a solução para esse problema.....

Not good in dark situation
i have buy this camera for about 7 month ago. i always bring my l810 in almost my travelling. it is good if you do not expect too much as a consumer class camera. so i try to capture at a night. it is very embarassing result picture. so i decide to buy nikon d5100 for my next camera
May 16, 2013
pros: macro is pretty good; i wish it had a viewfinder, pictures in medium to high light is pretty clear, zoom is nice, monitor is clear, movie is good. it is a good family camera.
cons: bad pictures in low light, not very good shutter speed, battery runs out quickly, not very good for a larger coolpix camera, panorama doesnt work and neither does 3d camera, cant charge it.
it is supposed to be a more advanced coolpix, but its just 'okay' for its bigger size

Not what I hoped for
I wanted to buy a camera with good telephoto for my wife because she is going to Europe. Most pictures regardless of distance is out of focus. The auto focus is very slow. I did a lot of research before buying this and now I wish I didn't buy it. Will be buying her something different for her trip.

Great for outdoors but poor in low light and zoom is noisy when using video
I purchased this camera because of the super zoom capability and 16 mp quality. This camera does well in sunny and bright conditions but does not perform well under low lighting. There is a delay when taking pictures and sometimes will get confused on what to focus on and has trouble focusing at all. Taking any type of spots or concert photos is difficult. I would not recommend this camera for those situations, unless there is amble light. This is a perfect camera for a novice photographer and not very particular with quality. I enjoy this camera for landscape photos, still shots and video. The video option is alright. I think that nikon needs to improve the zoom of this camera so when you are video recording and zooming you will not hear the zoom. It almost sounds like a fishing reel when you are zooming and recording. If you are recording those important events in your life you may not want to hear your camera in the background. I was very surprised that nikon did not improve on this feature. The zoom for photos is incredible and images are clear from a distance as long as you have a tripod or table and focus. This is a fun camera to take for day trips to the park, zoo and places you want to get close to your subjects with the powerful zoom. It does not do well with any tyoe of concerts or indoors where you have poor lighting and can not use flash. Images often are grainy or noisy when under low light. The controls are easy to operate but not many advanced options. I wish there were more manual controls for this camera but for the price it is pretty good. Nothing beats the quailty of my nikon slr camera but for an everyday take anywhere camera this will do the trick. My only recommendations to nikon is to improve on the sound of the zoom. I tried several different cameras and they all had the same zooming noise which is disappointing. I would have given it a better rating if the video was better. Nikon did a decent job on this model but there is room for improvement.

A good camera, but I would not recomend it.
It takes a long time to focus, and it is not a good camera to capture the moment. I should've returned it when I first bought it because it takes way too long to focus.

ok at best
I have had the camera for months and used it a lot. I am very dissappointed.
The zoom is nice, using AA batteries is nice but
the auto focus is slow, so I miss a lot of shots.
it is not very good in low light.
video is slow to start
if you take pictures too fast, you will get some photos with bands of garbage pixels in them.
I now have issues where the camera will not start, so maybe I will have the expensive opportunity to get a new camera I like better.

Lenta, Buen zoom, buenos macros en Tomas cercanas, Pésimas en movimiento o poca luz.
La maquina toma muy buenas imagenes en caso de macros, zoom lejano, pero estaticas, la calidad de video es buena con opcion de zoom.
Las opciones de fotografia en movimiento son terribles, la opcion de tomas deportivas es muy lenta y no enfoca bien, no hay opcion de foto a niños los que tienen mucho movimiento, las opcion de foto automatica no permite usar el zoom optico.
La camara es lenta al procesar las tomas , al momento de reaccionar a la siguiente toma, el enfoque es lento, los macros a larga distancia a no lo enfoca.
Buen Zoom, Buena calidad de imagen en la pantalla de la camara, buenos macros.
Lenta, no enfoca rapidamente , las tomas en movimiento son malas, las fotos con flash salen con ojo rojo, correcion que deberia ser estandar.

Depende do uso
Como eu precisei de fotos NOTURNAS, em MOVIMENTO e com ZOOM, tive 75% das fotos não nítidas. Repare na foto anexa como ficou sem nitidez o casal que passa andando durante uma cerimônia.

Nikon Coolpix L180
Out of town and I forgot my Cannon digital camera. Decided to purchase new one and thought by purchasing this Nikon I would be upgrading. WRONG! The poor quality picture this camera produces due to poor focusing engineering is reprehensible based upon the price I paid (at a discount store). Also the flash attachment is so weak you need to practically be on top of the subject and then hope it doesn't washout the entire photo. My Cannon cost $100 less and makes the L180 camera an embarrassment to Nikon. At least there is Ebay and I may recoup some of the losses. BTW, the L180 just needs some self confidence installed so it can make a decision on when to focus.

Worst Camera I have ever owned. Avoid this product
This camera takes poor pictures, will not focus properly does not operate on auto feature, and the flash washes out the photos. Has ruined my vacation photos After taking some classes about photography, hoping I could correct the issue it failed horribly again and I was not able to get photos at the family reunion. I would avoid this product. I will be purchasing a Cannond rebal EOS. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!!!!!

Not Quite Nikon Quality
I loved the 995 even though it was slow by todays standards for digital cameras. Still, the images from it were spectacular. This one, not so much. I'm really surprised and disappointed with the quality of the images and the slowness of the focusing mechanism. Super poor help from support and no return policy. Was going to buy higher on the Nikon scale, but Nikon's support team have convinced me to buy a Canon. That's ok though, this L810 will be a fine door stop.

I lost my small nikon coolpix and wanted to upgrade. What a shocker.. I have got to send this camera back. I cannot make a focused picture. The zoom lense will not retract most of the time. Every nature shot I attempt to make the camera continuously focuses and refocuses. No shot is in focus. What is going on? I have tried everything I know and have even gotten our newspaper photographer to see what I could be doing wrong. Now it is almost christmas and I have no camera for the holiday's.. please help

Very Very slow.. poor low light quality
I have a Nikon L100 purchased 3 years ago... Very happy with this small camera. I decided to upgrade to the L810.. (12-7-2012) but very disappointed with performance the "Sports" mode in the old camera was 7 to 10 pics per second. The L810 only about 2..... The zoomed image was shaking like crazy... could hardly see the target. When I tried to shoot with flash in low light .. I could not get the camera to force flash... .. SO TODAY (12-9-2012) I TOOK THE CAMERA BACK AND GOT A P510.... Hope to have better quality with this camera.

Not satisfied with Nikon
I'm not please with Nikon cameras at all. I purchase a I purchase a Nikon COOLPIX L810 two days ago. I left the camera in my car over night, the next day I found the screen crack. I call the Nikon company, they told me that they do not cover the screen eventhough, the heat inside the car might of crack it. There warranty only cover software that the camera not to work. I will not purchase another Nikon again. This is my last time dealing with them.

Not Very Good
I wanted a new camera because my previous ones haven't been very good and I thought it was time I got a better one, I looked for months and read a lot of reviews and I finally decided on this one. I honestly wish I had purchased a different one. The shutter speed is slow compared to other cameras (takes up to 3 seconds) and even then the pictures aren't very good. Video recording takes up to 5 minutes to actually begin and the quality still isn't very good. I tried having a friend of mine who's very experienced with camera look at it because I thought it might just be how I was using the camera. They tried multiple things and finally said there was nothing they could do because it just wasn't a good camera. I'm actually really angry because it was a rather expensive camera.

I purchased this camera at Target because it was on sale for 199.99. Everyplace I looked had it for 80 off, now I know why. It broke before I could even set it up. Had to return it the very next day. Lens is very sensitive and will break if you forget to remove the lens cap. It needs a pop off cap like Fugi has. I purchased a Fugi first and the pics were very blurry, so returned it too, but the cap pops off if you forget to remove it. The style is nice on the Nikon and it's not too heavy, but they still have work to do on the lens. Really want a camera this style but will wait for a better one to go on sale. Ps I read the reviews first, but the best ones come up and you have to select worst ones from the drop down menu to get them to come up first!
