This review is from: Nikon COOLPIX L26 Compact Digital Camera - Red (16.1MP, 5x Optical Zoom) 3 inch LCD (Electronics)I bought this for a holiday to the Bay of Naples. It takes terrible photos. The quality of the images is awful - when you zoom in, the image is badly pixelated. The battery life is very poor and inconsistent. I needed new batteries every day.
If you use the indoor lighting settings, every image is yellow. Using the sun/cloud setting made no difference. There is no way to set the time to control exposure. Thye colours are bad, the images are fuzzy. I have used different cameras over 40 years - this was the worst ever (digital and film!).
This was a first anniversary holiday to a place we'd always wanted to go. The camera thoroughly ruined any chance of having decent pictures.
My wife's iPhone 5 camera was much better.
This camera is going back.
If you want to point 'n' shoot for casual snaps - its probably fine. Anything more, don't waste your money.
