First of all, I love this camera. I've owned it now for a year and a half. This is my first nikon product, before I had a little Poloroid digital camera, but it broke so I got this camera as a replacement and it has done much more than just replace my old camera. The pictures it produces are beautiful and very large. My favorite specs are the 15X zoom, the close up mode, sports continuous mode (takes up to 13 pictures a second), and the design. The design makes me feel like a professional photographer, I often get asked if I'm in a photography club at my school because of it. A perfect fit in your hands. The pop-up flash is a nice feature too, if you don't want flash, just leave it down and it won't go off. The zoom on this camera is amazing, much much better than and of the popular digital cameras. It STILL amazes me even though I've owned this camera for a while. Since it's digital zoom, you aren't risking clearity of the pictures at all. The Sports Continuous mode is really fun. I've always wanted to make a flip book with it, but I haven't yet. Fun things like jumping into a pool or off of a swing look really cool when showed frame after frame. I haven't timed it yet, but I would estimate that this mode only lasts a couple seconds at a time, and after your done the camera takes up to 10 seconds to finsh before you can take any more pics. I do notice a slight difference in clearity in this mode, but it's nothing too major. I take all of my normal pictures in closeup mode because it seems to focus the best. In this mode, you still have the ability to zoom all the way and you can take normal pictures too, it's not only for close things. Sometimes it takes a second to focus, but it's always worth it. I get some beautiful pictures of birds in my bird bath for example, or really clear pictures of something up close, like a small coin. The only annoyance in this mode is that when you first select the mode, it automatically zooms in a little bit and you don't always need it zoomed in. It zooms in to where the zoom bar at the top has a mark at, where it's green. I assume it takes the best pictures in that degree of zoom, but I'm not sure. When you push the button half way to take a picture, if it shows gree you know your picture will come out great. When it's red, I'd give it a couple more seconds to focus again The only major downsides to this camera are that it takes 4 AA batteries and you can't use rechargeable according to the booklet. I would reccomend buying batteries in bulk, especially if you use your camera alot I know I've typed a lot, but it's only because I love this camera so much. Worth every penny you pay. If you've made it this far, congratulations. P.S. I would upload so many more pictures if I could, I feel these are good examples of the camera's features

I got this camera two years ago and I loved it. It is a really good camera for outdoor photos but when you get to the indoor photos they turn out with a yellow tinting that has to be edited out later on. The camera itself is very easy to use and has very straight forward settings. I was happy with the simplicity of the camera but I was very disappointed with the quality of the images. When I took outdoor photos the images were very sharp and high quality. Once you go outside when it is cloudy or stay indoors the images are very blurry and does not produce the quality that you get outside. For the first year of having this camera I was just taking pictures when I was bored or when something important was going on. Lately I have been taking a lot of photos as a hobby and I am really not pleased with this camera. Another problem I have encountered is that the auto-focus is not very helpful. Whenever I try to take a close up picture I end up having to focus it about 7 times before getting a decent focus. The cons outweigh the pros.

the worst camenra
Comments about Nikon Black 10 Megapixels Digital Camera:
If I could I would have give 0 stars. Complete waist of money, and wasnt cheap. I would not had accepted even for free this camera. Awaful pictures, I have it for 4-5 of years now. I am using EVERYsingle setting just to take one single normal picture for the same spot and still rubbish. either yellow or burned, really poor quality. Such a shame for Nikon. I wander, have they even try to take couple of shots before they release it in the market?
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have had mine for a couple years now. I have only had one problem and it was the battery exhaustion thing. A fix was sent out for it though and all you had to do was download the fix to your camera. It was simple and fixed the problem. Takes great pics. Portable. Reliable. I have gotten close up spots shots of humming birds and the camera took a pic which caught their wings in motion, clear as can be. If you have issues with pictures not coming out right, don't be so quick to always blame the camera! Each of the pictures posted were either from a distance or zoomed in (some taken through glass window)
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I am very happy with the performance of this camera. Takes beautiful, high quality shots and is easy to use. Great resolution, awesome stock lens, flash works great indoors and outdoors, good video/audio quality. The only negative thing I have to say is, occasionally the L100 will have difficulty aquiring good focus on target, especially under low-light conditions.

I Love IT!!
I received this camera as a gift last year for Christmas, and have started my own photography career using the L100. I have had my ups and downs with it, but every time I get frustrated with something I read through the user guide and figure out the only reason I thought my camera was malfunctioning was because of something I was doing. This is a wonderful camera for beginners!

Can get some amazing results with this camera.
By savy shooter
I have had this camera over a year now and have been very happy with the results. I have used it at my kids' outdoor ballgames as well as indoor games and concerts. To get better shots in the gyms I somtimes had to adjust the lighting with the exposure compensation and could get great shots. The zoom lens on the camera also is great if you dont go past the recommended setting. I love all the different options it gives you and that the menu is easy to understand and that it responds quickly. I too was upset that the camera would not take rechargable batteries, but have used the lithium ones and they last a loooong time. Though the video is not of the greatest quality it is a fun feature to have. Nice to be able to carry just one camera to some of the events rather than a camera and a video camera. Overall I have been really happy and impressed with this camera. A coworker even went out and bought one after borrowing mine.

Ever since I got this camera last year for father's day I don't go anywhere without it - it is easy to use, takes excellent photos and comes in handy when going camping, for graduations and for taking lots of pictures of our husky Starr. The only drawback is that you need to time your shots just right, pressing down on the shutter button a second before you want to take the picture is the trick. Otherwise I love it!

A good travel companion
from Boston, MA
I travel a lot and sometimes, my SLR is just not a good option for the destination. I looked for an alternative littler and affordable option and gave the Coolpix L100 a try. I was very surprised by the quality of the shots and the power of the zoom. Small body with a large screen, dependable, easy to use with a large number of convenient features to choose from to adapt to your photography needs. The video option is also a plus and creates fun souvenirs. The battery is far from being great and the zoom button, albeit it functions well, doesn't "feel" very sturdy. This camera has certainly gained its title as my SLR's sidekick in conditions where multiple lenses and larger camera body are limiting. Try it, you won't be disappointed!
