Nikon COOLPIX L18

 

Some people may not want lots of creative features, but simplicity of style shouldn't mean remedial-class results

A simple camera that almost charms, but doesn't deliver the image quality we'd expect in a modern compact at any price.

Nikon Coolpix L18 review

 

Nikon takes on the cameraphone... and wins

Very simple to use ; Cameraphone-beater ; Clever zoom review function ; Great price

Control? What control ; Shutter lag ; Eats AA batteries

Not a camera for the enthusiast under any circumstances, the Nikon Coolpix L18 has two big things going for it. It's really cheap and really easy. This can be picked up for £80 or less and there are toasters that are more complicated to use than this...

Nikon Coolpix L18

 

The Nikon Coolpix L18 is an 8 megapixels, entry level digital camera. It has a 3x optical zoom lens. Its strength lies in its ease of use. In fact you will be hard pressed to find a digital camera much easier to use than this one.

Low price, simple interface

Pictures a little over-sharpened, some visible graininess, can't manually adjust ISO, somewhat sluggish

Nikon's CoolPix L18 is a basic, entry-level compact camera that does little to separate itself from the pack. It will be fine for novice users but anyone more discerning will be frustrated by the image quality and speed issues.
