First, the good. It takes great pictures and fits into your pocket. OK for snapshots under normal conditions. I also have had some professional quality pics with good color saturation then the light is good. The camera remembers your settings (eg, exposure compensation) after being turned off, meaning you don't need to reset them each time you power up/down.
Now the bad:
1. As one reviewer noted, it does not have a viewfinder, only an LCD monitor. First, powering the LCD screen makes it eat batteries. Next, the LCD screen is useless in bright light because you can't see what's on the screen.
2. Once the camera alerts you that it's turning off after a certain period of non-use (eg, 60 seconds), it takes a long time to actually turn off. And in the meantime, there's nothing you can do to stop it from turning off. Not good it you want to get that great shot.
3. The cycling time between pics is very long. It takes about 1.5 - 2 seconds to recycle and get ready for the next shot.
4. The "multi-selector" (the large round dial in the back that lets you select flash, timer, exposure, and macro settings) is prone to operator error (meaning it's too small and you will select the wrong setting a lot (eg, exposure instead of timer). This means you need to scroll out of the wrong setting, back into the correct setting. Again, a time waster.
5. It can be very noisy (the pictures look grainy) in night pics.
The price isn't bad for 6 megapixles, but I suspect the low price is indicative of how much some people don't like this camera. Still, I think it's a three star.
1) Price - I was looking for a camera around $[...]. This narrows the field considerably.
2) Picture quality - Obviously, this is why you buy a camera. I would never buy a camera from a company that isn't famous for them, such as Samsung. I compared the Nikon L11 to the Canon A550/560 since these two are really the best budget buys out there.
3) Size, AA batteries, SD card - all these features make for a great an inexpensive camera to use. The Canon is too bulky too comfortably put in your pant pockets.
4) Speed - this is also essential. Nothing is more annoying than a snapshot camera without the "snap".
This is a great camera that I would recommend to anyone. Go to [...] for an expert opinion.
- Takes very good pictures in good lighting
- Nice options including face priority
- D Light feature seems to be really working
- Supports SDHC card
- Very cheap (less than 100)
- Takes not very good picture in low light or shade
- Flash is not powerful enough to go over 5 feet
- Shutter lag time sometimes can be long. Not sure why, but it could be related to battery power. That causes more shake and blurry pictures. Especially if you let someone else take the picture who is not aware of the lag.
Overall, I think coughing up a bit more money for L14 (which I believe has optical stabilizer) maybe worth it.
