Located in: Digital Cameras (All)
The COOLPIX L18 is Nikon's newest addition to its Life Series line of digital cameras. Compact and easy-to-use, the L18 is the ideal camera for people looking to capture life’s memories at an affordable price. The L18 has 8 effective megapixels for generating superior quality prints, a 3x Zoom-NIKKOR lens for creative compositional freedom, an incredibly huge and bright 3.0-inch LCD screen for sharing images, and Anti-shake AE for images with outstanding clarity. Available nationwide starting in March, the COOLPIX L18 will be offered in Navy and Ruby Red.

Adding to the L18’s ease-of-use, the camera is equipped with an Easy Auto Mode, allowing the user to enjoy carefree shooting without having to adjust any settings or controls. The L18 continues Nikon's tradition of including its unique image innovations in its COOLPIX cameras. The L18 features enhanced Face-priority AF*, which automatically finds and focuses on a subject’s face in a frame; In-Camera Red-Eye Fix, which can automatically detect and correct red eye in a photo; and D-Lighting, which compensates for excessive backlight or insufficient flash in images. For composing and displaying images, the L18 is equipped with a huge, bright 3.0-inch LCD screen. When viewing images, the L18 features a special playback option, which magnifies a subject’s face to ensure that each image is scrapbook worthy.

The L18 is equipped with a 3x Zoom-NIKKOR lens for creative control and freedom in a variety of settings, from intimate personal portraits to wide landscapes. Even close-up photography as close as 5.9 inches is as easy as point and shoot.

To ensure steady shots, the L18 has an innovative Anti-shake AE feature that minimizes blurry images by automatically adjusting shutter speeds and ISO settings. For superior low light performance, the L18 has ISO capabilities up to 1600.

In addition, the COOLPIX L18 offers TV-quality movie recording with sound ideal for being played on televisions and computers. The L18 is compatible with AA-size batteries in alkaline, lithium, oxy-nickel and rechargeable forms for ultra-portability. The camera also has 32 MB of internal memory and is compatible with SD and SDHC memory cards.

The COOLPIX L18 even simplifies printing with PictBridge and is USB compatible for transferring pictures to computers and other peripherals. Additionally, the camera includes a complimentary copy of COOLPIX Software Suite for importing, editing and organizing images.

Equipped for Life's Magic - amazing views on a huge 3-inch LCD screen
  • 8.0 Megapixels for stunning prints as large as 16 x 20 inches
  • 3x Optical Zoom-Nikkor Glass Lens gets you close to the action
  • Anti-Shake Mode minimizes the effect of camera shake
  • Huge, Bright High Resolution 3.0-inch LCD makes it easy to view and share pictures

  • D-Lighting rescues dark or backlit images by improving brightness and detail where needed

Comments about Nikon Nikon Coolpix L18 Digital Camera (Navy Blue):

Takes great pictures. I took 35MM film pics prior the the L-18 so, I had to adjust to the lag time. I take a lot of pics of my grandkids so, I learned to "anticipate" with the youngest ones to overcome the lag. I have had the L-18 about 18 months and the camera still works great and,takes excellent video too. Around Christmas I dropped it about 3 feet onto cement. The base segment of the telescoping lense was cocked to one side and the camera made a clicking noise (like it was trying to retract the lense). I pulled the batteries and put the camera in my pocket, thinking it was a total loss. When I got home I popped the lense back into position, put the batteries back in and was surprised when it worked perfectly again. I always use the wrist strap but this time I did not and-oops.
Do not install the software that comes with the camera. I did and the pics were distorted when imported into my computer. I thought it was the SDHC memory card but with help from my camera store and others I isolated the problem to the Nikon software. I now just import the pics using windows software with no problems.
I take pics of my grandson's roller hockey, baseball and basketball games. Great for sports and action shots. I like the auto red eye removal setting on the flash menu.
I would recommend this camera to anyone just getting into digital pics. Lot of features but easy to use and inexpensive.

Comments about Nikon Nikon Coolpix L18 Digital Camera (Navy Blue):

I was a news photographer back in the stone age, so I think my photo standards are pretty high. This little cigarette-pack-sized box, along with a new entry-level laptop and photo printer, can do more than two or three grand worth of analog SLR and darkroom equipment could do just a couple decades ago.I bought Nikon because of my past experience with the brand, and I am certainly glad that I did. I have looked at other entry-level digitals, but I got a lot more for my money with the Old Reliable. Now I just need a good excuse to buy one of those snazzy new Nikon digital SLR bodies to go with my old professional equipment!I read lots of reviews before buying. A couple reviews mentioned problems with the lens getting stuck in the "out-open" position and a "lens error" message, along with a lack of warranty support from Nikon. I had the first problem after a few days but I just walked home and put in fresh batteries -- problem solved. I prevented the second problem through research -- make sure you buy from an Authorized Nikon Dealer like Ritz, or Nikon will not honor the warranty. I don't blame them; who knows how some grey-market profiteer has been storing or transporting a delicate electronic device like this? The list is on the Nikon USA website.[...]

Comments about Nikon Nikon Coolpix L18 Digital Camera (Navy Blue):

This is my first digital camera and I couldn't be happier with it. I used to be a newspaper photographer back in the stone ages, and even won a statewide award, so my standards are fairly high. This little box (only slightly bigger than a cigarette pack) does what a couple or three grand in good-quality analog SLR and darkroom equipment used to do just a few years ago.

So far, I am mostly using it to take photos of ebay items and to do research on future home improvements while dog-walking. Downloading the photos to my laptop couldn't be easier; I think my dog could do it. Seriously. But she's a pretty smart dog.

I received a free Epsom printer since I bought last year's model and I haven't used the printer yet--it didn't have a USB cable so I had to order one--but it will be my workhorse since it can print in color or b&w, on plain paper for documents or on photo paper.

Thanks, Ritz!

Comments about Nikon Nikon Coolpix L18 Digital Camera (Navy Blue):

I bought the camera for my wife. After two weeks she almost has a 2 gig flash card filled! Does she like it? YES!!! It has a nice big screen. With only a few buttons. It's not confusing. The auto feature makes it super simple to get great photos even in low light. Zooming in to get that close up has never been so easy. She loves the color as well. Overall, this is a great buy and I like using it too.

Comments about Nikon Nikon Coolpix L18 Digital Camera (Navy Blue):

I have had this camera for 6 months. I purchased this camera for business use and it worked well until the flash burned out. It still takes good pictures. I would have expected this type of failure since I am consistently bumping into things. I am a self employed business owner, and I have used this camera to take pictures of cars that belong to my customers. The price is right for the wear and tear I was giving it.

The ease of use was great and the camera worked effortlessly. Now I'll sit down and read the camera directions and get some helpful hints. Great Job NIKON

Comments about Nikon Nikon Coolpix L18 Digital Camera (Navy Blue):

Great camera. Easy to use. Everyone who sees my pics are asking if I used "special" settings vs. "point and shoot" and I have only used "point and shoot" and the zoom and obtained great detail in flowers, etc. 3" screen is wonderful for adult vision - eliminates pulling out the reading glasses to take a distance shot!! After lots of use, still using original batteries. Love the camera.

Comments about Nikon Nikon Coolpix L18 Digital Camera (Navy Blue):

This camera has great construction. The photo screen is bright enough to be seen in sunny conditions and very vibrant colors. The photos come out great when printed at Ritz. I haven't tried at other places to get prints. This was actually purchased for my daughter who is 7-years old. She has been taught to take care of cameras and not to drop them or abuse them. The only complaint I would have about this camera is the ability to get to the extra settings. It's not as user-friendly as some other models.

For [$] this is a great package. Its best thing is that does not take ages to initialize when you press the power button unlike other cameras that I have had in the past. Also the large LCD screen is definately a plus. Another good thing is its compact size as it does not take much space. I bought a small camera pouch with a belt clip so I can put it on when I am out and about. Most other times its in my back pack. Overall a great dealfor a little camera...a definate buy!!

Comments about Nikon Nikon Coolpix L18 Digital Camera (Navy Blue):

Bought one a few months ago really liked the large LCD, common AA batteries, SD cards can be found almost anywhere at a reasonable price. I liked the camera so much I bought 2 more and I am giving them for Christmas gifts.
I did have a recall on my camera from Nikon it went very smooth it was fixed and returned very promptly. Nikon lens and cameras are first class

Comments about Nikon Nikon Coolpix L18 Digital Camera (Navy Blue):

The one thing that I noticed about the camera is its zoom and its easy auto focus modes.I haven't experimented with a lot of built in scene modes but it seems to do its work. For a price range of 100$ it seems to be a budget friendly camera. This one records movies with sound but the sound clarity was not good. Another disappointing thing that I noticed is the noise the camera makes. Its irritating at times

My daughter received this as a birthday present and it has been such a great camera. It was easy enough for her to learn all about it and understand how it functions. She has taken several videos with it and the quality is quite good. This camera takes great pictures and even in the hands of a teenager the pictures are rarely shaky or distorted. I am thrilled with this little camera. I am even going to buy myself one!

Comments about Nikon Nikon Coolpix L18 Digital Camera (Navy Blue):

We upgraded from an old S1. The camera is even more user friendly, quick to get to the menus and some of the features. Holding is much easier; fingers don't get in the way of the lense as with the old S1. We also have a D200. This little camera is nice to have also for when we want to have a camera along but not have to carry the big heavy. It is also great for putting photos on the web. We have given several of the L18's as gifts. Nikon manuels are very user friendly, I love Nikon.

Comments about Nikon Nikon Coolpix L18 Digital Camera (Navy Blue):

I purchased this camera for a trip to climb Pico de Orizaba, an 18,500' volcano in Mexico - I wanted a simple, durable camera and the L18 exceeded my expectations. It was easy to use in pretty harsh conditions and took great photos at the summit. The easy auto mode is a great feature when you want to get a quick picture in a situation that doesn't offer you a lot of time to set up a shot (e.g. on a rope team on a steep face of a mountain). This is a great camera for the price and I highly recommend it!

got this camera 4 my daughter - wanted something small and the price was right . Both of us are really amazed at the picture clarity . The detail is right on, great dof . colors are spot on and the image stabelization works terrific.we were Canon buffs but this one has changed our ways - - - you can not go wrong if you want a all around camera and buy this one - only reason i didn't give it a 5 was because we haven't had it long enough to say about durability - if it holds up then it get a 5 rating

Comments about Nikon Nikon Coolpix L18 Digital Camera (Navy Blue):

This camera is great for a beginner/casual user. The setup was very easy and menus were well laid out. I haven't even checked the owners manual on any of the controls, it is that easy. The CoolPix L18 comes in a variety of colors and is really a pocket size camera. The online price was actually better than the retail store on a head to head basis. I gave up instant gratification for savings, a fair trade in my opinion. My only complaint would be the battery housing is a bit tricky to close when you put the batteries in. Overall a great buy, a great little camera and very easy to use!

Comments about Nikon Nikon Coolpix L18 Digital Camera (Navy Blue):

This is a nice and good looking camera with lots of features packed into it. It is compact and easy to use and fits in any pocket. It has a large 3" screen which is bright and with great colors. I am sorry that had to give it such a low rating, and the main reason is the technical support at Nikon. I had the camera for only 10 days, working wonderfully, and without any warning or sign I went to turn it on and suddenly the screen was mostly darkened like if it had suffered a short circuit burning about 90% of it and only leaving a partial corner working. It was the strangest thing ever. With all honesty I can say that this camera had not suffered any type of abuse or mishandling from the day I bought it until this incident happened. It was intact, without a scratch. [...] I was planning on purchasing for next Christmas one of their SLR expensive cameras with my bonus from work, [...]At work and in my personal circles, I have been telling everyone about my experience with this company, so be aware! I will certainly switch to Canon who are legendary with their products and service.

Comments about Nikon Nikon Coolpix L18 Digital Camera (Navy Blue):

I bought this camera for a present, but I tried it out before giving it away. It's a point and shoot, so it points and shoots. It is stylish and small and the pics come out very good for this kind of camera. There is a shutter lag between pushing down the shutter til when the pic is actually taken. I suggest pre focusing by halfway pushing down the button and letting the camera focus before taking the pic. But, the pics were very good and the camera is easy to tote along anywhere.

It provides very high quality pictures for such a small camera. Once you learn how to set up the various modes of operation it all seems simple.

Comments about Nikon Nikon Coolpix L18 Digital Camera (Navy Blue):

We took our Cool Pic on our Alaskan cruise and were very happy with the pictures we were able to take. Everyone loved our pictures. The landscape pics turned out sharp and the colors brilliant.

Comments about Nikon Nikon Coolpix L18 Digital Camera (Navy Blue):

I am extremely pleased with this camera. It is priced right, with lots of cool features, i.e. red eye fix, auto face focus, etc. It has nice, big 3" Screen, which I can use without my glasses. Lots of cool features (red eye fix, auto face focus, etc.). I am much happier with this camera than the Sony Cybershot that I had.
