COOLPIX L26 3.9 5 28 28
REPLACED A SONY WITH IT! Love the compact everyday use, take it skiing with me in the jacket pocket and always in the car. Replaced a Sony with this one. Have 3 active Nikons and 2 old units. The best feature on this camera is the use of "AA" batteries, so sick of specialized batteries that cost a bundle. The Nikon batteries however do last longer than the competitors models. February 9, 2013
Excellent camera always Always had Coolpix L series, great camera and ready to use. Love Nikon quality!!! January 30, 2013
GREAT CAMERA! I am very please with this purchase, very simple and easy camera to use and great pictures!!! January 14, 2013
Great little camera I bought this camera for one of my sons...we liked it so much we got another. It's very easy to use and takes great pictures December 30, 2012
Owner Best all-a-round pocket camera you could ever want. Has 8X10 picture quality. Great for when you are just in the car driving, who never know what you come up to and thats when you always don't have a camera, but this one can be the one you have. I know other photographers that use this model camera as their back-up when due to bad weather or timing this camera saves the day. December 26, 2012

Answer: 
The multi selector has a box (on the right) with a + and- sign, that is exposure compensation. Press the +- box and you can toggle up + to lighten or toggle down - to darken.

As soon as you insert a SD card the camera will write to it, are you using an approved memory card and are you formatting it in the camera before you use it?

Answer: 
Yes. If you set your flash mode to "Fill Flash" the flash will fire whenever a picture is taken. See pages 50-52 of the L26 manual for more information on flash modes.

Answer: 
Having a "Lens error" message display on the camera's LCD display indicates a problem with the camera lens mechanism. This situation generally requires that the camera be sent to a Nikon Service Department for repair. Before doing this however, be sure to check these situations below:

1) One possible reason for this error is if the camera is switched on and the lens unit is prevented from extending. The camera will struggle for a second to extend the lens, then report the problem.
2) Inspect the lens for any obvious obstruction, then turn the camera off, then on again. Usually, simply switching the camera Off then On again is enough to correct this problem.

3) Remove and recharge the battery. Retest.
If the issue persists, you will have to contract technical support. There contact can be found at support.nikonusa.com

Answer: 
When shooting in Auto mode with the COOLPIX L26, the camera will choose when to use the camera's flash according to the lighting. However with the flash modes, the camera can be set to use the flash at every shot. When pressing the flash button located on back of the camera, the flash modes can change. More information on flash modes can be found on page 50 of the User's Manual: http://www.nikonusa.com/pdf/manuals...
