Located in: Featured Digital Cameras and Electronics
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
  • Adjusts up to ISO 1600 to keep shooting even in lower light
Nikon In-Camera Innovations
  • In-Camera Red-Eye Fix automatically fixes most instances of red-eye in the camera. You may never see red-eye again
  • Face-Priority AF - Nikon's face-finding technology that automatically focuses on faces
  • D-Lighting rescues dark or backlit images by improving brightness and detail where needed

Comments about Nikon Coolpix L18 Digital Camera (Ruby Red):

I bought this for my grandma who really wanted a digital camera and was disappointed because it only had enough memory to store 10 pictures, then you had to delete or download to put on more pictures. What it needed was an additional memory card, but that wasn't made clear when I bought it at wolf camera. So what I thought was going to be a very exciting Christmas for her turned into a disappointment.

Comments about Nikon Coolpix L18 Digital Camera (Ruby Red):

This is a wonderful point and shoot. I had an older model that my toddler got ahold of...so, I needed a new one and this was the one. Great price, great quality! I loved my old one, and love this one too. It makes my baby's eyes look so beautifully blue (indoor and out) and has a quick shutter which is great for catching him in the act. This time I will make sure he doesn't torture it!!

Comments about Nikon Coolpix L18 Digital Camera (Ruby Red):

This is a great little camera for the money. I had a Coolpix L6 that I was very happy with until it got dropped and then the lens would not open again. This one has some improvements over the L 6 and so far, I am very happy with it. It does all that I need and more, as a casual photographer.

Comments about Nikon Coolpix L18 Digital Camera (Ruby Red):

I use this product for capturing the memories I share with family and friends, and I could not be more impressed. Holidays and special occassions are captured perfectly by this sleek, easy to use camera. The ability to capture the moment while it is happening without worrying about blurry shots is amazing. Even when I am out with friends at a concert or in a bar, the coolpix yeilds flawless photos in the dark setting. The only complaint I would think of is the battery power this phone consumes, but problem solved when I invested in some rechargable batteries. Overall it is a wonderful, sleek, and stylish camera perfect for the casual photographer

Comments about Nikon Coolpix L18 Digital Camera (Ruby Red):

I enjoy teaching my godchild at age 6 how to use the camera and she is able to critique the pictures she wants printed; even a child can operate it well. I belong to the Nikon family and have 6 Nikon cameras plus the new coolpix. I like quality and realiability. I am encouraging this product to my godchild because the cameras never really depreciate; they become classics that still operate today as they did when I first bought them

This is my first digital camera. My daughter picked it out because it takes AA batteries and seemed like the shooting menus looked very user friendly. The menus ARE easy to navagate. The only thing I would change is the placement of the 2 buttons on top, I've accidentaly hit them a time or two.

Comments about Nikon Coolpix L18 Digital Camera (Ruby Red):

The batteries are not that great, it kind of bulky, and the zoom isn't that great. plus you can't make it black and white, sepia, etc. like other camera's do so it lacks in several areas. i do not suggest, it is more of a camera for someone who doesn't know how to use it yet.

Comments about Nikon Coolpix L18 Digital Camera (Ruby Red):

This was my daughter's 16th birthday gift, and she loves it big time. As a budding artist, she really likes the crisp shots, accurate colors and how easy it is to take great pictures.
The lens locked open after 8 months of use, so I sent it off to Nikon for repairs. It came back working like new, so even though the mechanics were a bit weak, they stood behind their L18.
Best gift for any teenager, in my opinion.

Comments about Nikon Coolpix L18 Digital Camera (Ruby Red):

I bought this for my over 70 husband who never could get it right when there was more than one button to push....unless it's a TV Remote control...that doesn't need programming. If he can handle this camera, anyone can. He doesn't need all the manual controls to get confused, and this one takes care of everything automatically. The price is right for the quality, too. Only a fool wouldn't buy this, yet - even a fool can work it. Go get one and enjoy! The colors are hot, too.

Comments about Nikon Coolpix L18 Digital Camera (Ruby Red):

I've had this camera a few weeks and I've used it in many different situations. It has performed very well in most cases. Still have some problem with red eye even with the red eye reduction, but lighting is good even in low lighting and night time situations. Battery life is good. I'm still learning all the functions but for overall general use this is a great camera, especially for the price! And love the big screen!

Comments about Nikon Coolpix L18 Digital Camera (Ruby Red):

Need to adjust sleep mode. Doesn't come out of it quickly when I need a picture. Overrides my commands like use of flash. Guess I just need to practice more. I like the greater distance for flash. It seems quick to focus but the delay in the actual picture taking misses the shot.

I love that my cute red camera is small enough to go everywhere with me. The LCD screen is such a great size to actually see how the picture will be once downloaded. This is my 4th digital camera and hope it is my last.

Comments about Nikon Coolpix L18 Digital Camera (Ruby Red):

I bought this camera for my mother - she is not the most technical person when it comes to electronics. I have to say the ease of use, picture quality, long battery life and price make this a great buy! Mom is very pleased with the camera and she has said “if I would have known these digital cameras were so easy to use I would have bought one a long time ago”. She loves the Ruby Red too!

Bought this for my daughter's 7th birthday. This is about the third coolpix we have bought. It's so simple to use she picked it right up and took snap shots immediately. Showed me some new features she found on her own. Very compact and takes it everywhere, she likes red color and big screen.
Nice intro camera and a good value

Comments about Nikon Coolpix L18 Digital Camera (Ruby Red):

I document trips that I take to various cities, including trip to Africa to visit HIV/AIDS programs. The camera is lightweight and small enough to fit easily into hand baggage, briefcase or carry on my hip. Yet it provides great, clear pictures, with more than enough pixels for significant editing. Cons - it uses battery power up too quickly.

Love the 3" LCD screen. I Have had other cameras with smaller LCDs and they where hard to judge the picture, if it was good or needed to be taken again. Good Batt. consumtion, Inexpensive SD card, Great little camera and I got a free printer with it who could ask for more.

Comments about Nikon Coolpix L18 Digital Camera (Ruby Red):

This camera is a great combination of price, value and features. It's great for a beginner or someone who is MUCH more advance. It's lightweight and fits nicely in the hand (presuming you are right handed). The large viewing screen makes it easy to capture any subject.

The only negative is that this camera uses standard batteries and they need to be replaced often.

Nikon Camera and Warranty Stinks!
By ronfox from Bakersfield, CA on 5/22/2008
Cons:
Inaccurate Colors, Low-Quality Pictures, Not Good In Low Light
Bottom Line:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Comments about Nikon Coolpix L18 Digital Camera (Ruby Red):

I had my L18 for a month and a half when the LCD screen went bad. Turned it on and had black spots and lines all over it. Sent in to Nikon for warranty service and they said the screen had been damaged (NOT…it has been sitting on a counter since the last time I used it) and it was not covered and would cost over $100.00 to fix! [...]Nikon warranty and service stinks. Stay away from this product and Nikon in general. Canon makes a much better product and takes care of their customers.

Great, little camera!
By traveljocky from Thorndale, Tx. on 3/19/2008

Comments about Nikon Coolpix L18 Digital Camera (Ruby Red):

This is one great camera. I was looking for an inexpensive "point and shoot" camera to take on vacations, one that's quick, light and small. It fits in my shirt pocket.
With 8.29 MP and Nikon lens system, the pictures are sharp, crisp and color-true. A 3" LCD display and easy setup menu makes it a cinch to review pics and change modes. Quality of hardware is also high. I have a big superzoom SLR with all features, but this Coolpix is more fun to take along for quick shots.
Low light pics without flash are also very good with little noise. I plan to use a 4GB SDHC to capture high-res pics and short movies - should have plenty of room.
