CoolPix L18-Warranty stinks
Strengths: looks nice
Weakness: piece of junk
Purchased a L18 for my daughter for her birthday in December 08 and by March 09 the lens would not open. Warranty said it was jammed and not covered under warranty. It would cost more than we paid for the camera to repair and 12.50 to ship, ridiculous, priority mail is $4.90. I will never buy a Nikon Product again. Even the professional reviews say the lens is wobbly. They really do not warranty...

Nikon Coolpix L18
Strengths: seemed to be a good value for the price. However, it does not download pictures to my computer, never has. Never will.
Weakness: Nikon, arrogant and unresponsive company.
Never buy a Nikon. they are not the camera they were, they are not the least responsive to their problems. I have never gotten one picture out of my camera on to my computer to even look at if the quality is good or not. To share the pictures, I must take the camera a view it on their 3 inch screen. Worthless product and company I have experienced.

Good Quality/Low Price
Strengths: Ease of use is a BIG plus. Buttons are clearly marked to lessen any confusion. Excellent for still shots...indoors or out. Super quality pics!
Weakness: The anti-shake dosen't really help all that much. Buttons are a bit small for those with big fingers...like me.
I'm a police officer in Alabama. Our department issued these cameras to each officer for use in photographing evidence, suspects, etc. I liked it so much I bought one for my family. You really can't beat the combination of quality product and low price.

Coolpix L18 is pretty cool!!!
Strengths: User friendly and pretty simple to operate. It is compact and can be placed in small hand bag/case. The viewing screen is larger than the average smaller cameras. The 2 color selections are vibrant.
Weakness: The compartment door where the batteries and sd card are loaded does not open/close easily. Should have added more color choices.
This camera was purchased for my 12 year old daughter who absolutely adores it. At one time she was constantly using her cell phone to take pictures, however, she was not able to share her photos with family and friends. The cost to add the camera feature to the cellular package was not feasible. She can save hundreds of pictures now onto the SD card or even load them on an online photo website...

The cost to add the camera feature to the cellular package was not feasible. She can save hundreds of pictures now onto the SD card or even load them on an online photo website that provides free space for up to a certain amount of bytes.

Strengths: easy to use; takes good pictures
Weakness: power down is a little aggravating after only 3 seconds
Really like this camera; the pictures come out really great and clear with true colors. I think the power down interval should be a little longer before it powers down. Sometimes the moment is gone before you can get the camera up. Otherwise, I would recommend it.
