Buy a Coolpix L320 Black Digital Camera (16.1 MP, 26x Opt, SD/SDHC/SDXC Card Slot)
Any comments about this camera as I’m thinking about buying one?
7:51 pm - Wednesday, June 19, 2013
I bought the camera and I am really impressed with it as the picture quality is great and the auto focus also works well although you can do it manually as the camera on whole is famous for it’s easy to use and that mean the camera is fully automatic that’s why you can’t do it manually. I will not recommend you to take videos from it as you can use your mobile if you have iPhone 5 or S4 but if you don’t have you can use it as video recorder and it will fulfill your need. The camera is in budget.
Overall 9/10 and RECOMMENDED

The camera is slow, lenses take long time to get a focus lock, worse if light is compromised. Macro mode causes lots of distortion The distortion is most evident when we take pictures of 3 d objects
5:06 pm - Thursday, August 29, 2013
I already mentioned that the camera is in budget and the camera is best in the range

Thanks for feedback, it’s a nice little bridge,but most fujifilm bridge cameras are better. Must like it because I use it alot.

camera is extremely perfect!!!!.....but the only reason is that the battery does not last forever :(....how can i fix it? pleaseeee…

The first four frames record in around 2.5 seconds, which is 0.6fps, not the 1.2fps that Nikon state on the website.
The tester’s statement is absolutely wrong. 4 frames in 2.5 seconds is (4/2.5=) 1.6 fps, even better than Nikon states and not even close to the tester’s false statement 0.6 fps.

keep spare batteries with you and keep others on charge. I always have four spare batteries charging.

I just bought this camera a couple of weeks ago and the 1st real use i’m going to get out of it is when I go to a hockey game and i’m relatively far from the ice do anyone think that its got a good enough zoom on it to where when I take pictures its going to look like i’m close to the action?
3:32 pm - Friday, October 25, 2013
plizzz..help me to choose :| which one is better fujifilm fine pix sl300 or nikon coolpix l320?im thinking of buying either one of it for my final year project..zooming the masterpiece and etc..any suggestion? *im v indecisive :(*
7:04 am - Thursday, November 7, 2013
Joe is correct… the math was reversed. 0.6 would be seconds per frame NOT frames per second. You would think someone that reviews cameras for a living would know this.
7:53 am - Thursday, November 14, 2013
What size battery does it take
6:17 pm - Saturday, November 23, 2013
Donna, it uses four AA batteries.
6:32 am - Sunday, November 24, 2013
Does this camera imprint the date on picture?
3:30 pm - Monday, November 25, 2013
Is there a Wifi SDHC card available for the L320? Like Eye-Fi, etc?
9:54 pm - Tuesday, November 26, 2013
This camera was advertised for $99 at Target as a Black Friday sale, so I thought I would look at some sample photos before buying one. Based on nikon_coolpix_l320_23.jpg, alone, I have concluded that the image quality is so bad, that Nikon must have intentionally degraded the image in the camera’s firmware. More specifically, there are outstanding halos around edges. I can’t help but think that previous reviewers must be blind or ignorant to tolerate such outstanding halos. If this camera had a RAW format, I would seek third party demosaicing software to avoid such halos, but, this camera does not have a RAW format. I wouldn’t buy this camera at any price.

Aruzinsky…I just saw the camera advertised for $99 with a Target Red Card. Previously had a Panasonic Lumix. Find it difficult to use and have never loved it. Any advice on what to buy? Nothing too sophisticated. Easy to use, quick, great pic quality. Mostly for kids, family vacations, etc. Anyone???
1:39 am - Thursday, November 28, 2013
Aruzinky ... thanks so much for your review. I was planning on a run to Target to purchase this camera. I’d be interested, as Deborah is as to what camera you would recommend.
6:43 pm - Thursday, November 28, 2013
I have already purchased it so Thanks I am sure I well be satisfied.
7:39 pm - Thursday, November 28, 2013
fps calculation - I think you throw away the first as there is no process time involved so you are really calculating the time interval to the next frame you capture. The math would be:
(4-first frame) / 2.5 seconds
3 / 2.5 which equals 1.2 fps.
7:50 pm - Thursday, November 28, 2013
I was all set to buy one of these but now I am not so sure. I have had a Nikon Coolpix 880 for years now and have hated it since day one. I can never get pics that are in focus, no matter the distance. I usually take a lot of closeups, mostly to advertise on the web. What is a good camera for that? Thanks.
3:26 am - Friday, November 29, 2013
Does it have a timer for self portraits?
2:45 pm - Friday, November 29, 2013
Yes, Don, it (the 880) does have a timer.
4:07 pm - Friday, November 29, 2013
In response to questions, I am considering buying a Canon IXUS 255. See
If I could afford it, I would buy a Sigma DP3M. See
Everyone here should closely examine Sigma DP3M sample pictures to understand what “high image quality” means.
5:17 pm - Friday, November 29, 2013
Does the L320 have a timer for self portraits?
6:02 pm - Friday, November 29, 2013
no viewfinder ... no good.
11:00 pm - Saturday, November 30, 2013
Can you change the lense?
5:59 pm - Monday, December 2, 2013
Just bought one at Target a couple of days ago. I did call Nikon, the lense can not be changed. That being said it seems to be a great entry level camera for $99.00. Hard to beat, I also bought the extended warranty.
(Two years for $7.00)
I think this is a small investment for a great value.
10:27 pm - Monday, December 2, 2013
Just bought one over the weekend at Target as well $99.00. Also purchased an extended warranty. Two years $7.00.
Called Nikon: Lens is not interchangeable…
I think this is a small investment for a lot of value.
I will see how the Grand Canyon pics look in January.
10:35 pm - Monday, December 2, 2013
Can you put on new lenses?
10:58 pm - Monday, December 2, 2013
I bought one. Can you go wrong for $100??
10:59 pm - Monday, December 2, 2013
Bought this at Target on Black Friday, used it in Savannah friday, saturday, and sunday. Worked great batteries lasted all day. Takes great pictures. Zoom is great as well.It’s a great basic level camera.
11:58 pm - Monday, December 2, 2013

i just purchased the camera from targets black friday deal as well. i have not seen anyone mention anything about the lcd quality. the 3’’ lcd quality is horrible. i dont know if this is just mine, or you guys experience this as well. its close to or below vga quality. i know the quality is much better if seen on a computer but being able to see photos clearly on the camera is a must as well.
10:15 pm - Wednesday, December 4, 2013
Bought 1 black friday, and not impressed at all!
1:37 am - Friday, December 6, 2013
I read a comment were one person loves this camera and then read another one were the person is not impressed at all. So now what do I do? I have a raincheck for one since my local Target store was out of them. But can you go wrong for a hundred bucks? But now I am also thinking about the Nikon 3200. I am so confused.
3:27 am - Friday, December 6, 2013
I bought one of these from Target Online, for the Black Friday price, before they sold out (ordered in the morning). I got it last evening, so I haven’t developed my full impression yet.
So far, so good. It meets my expectations. It has enough features to keep me exploring for a while. It’s not a $1,000 camera. It’s not even a $500 camera. However it seems like a heck of a $100 camera!
4:29 am - Saturday, December 7, 2013
I bought this camera online from Target (black friday special) and I really like the quality of the pictures I’ve taken so far. Two years ago I bought the coolpix L105 from Target as well but I dropped it and had to returned it. I’m very happy I got a new one, these cameras are very easy to use and the quality of the photos is outstanding for a point and shoot camera. The only thing that I didn’t like though and sucks so much is that the screen’s resolution is extremely low. I was very upset about that but seeing how good the photos turn out to be makes up for that defect.
6:02 am - Saturday, December 7, 2013
Can anyone tell me what the shutter speed is like on the coolpix l320?
4:42 pm - Saturday, December 7, 2013
Does anyone have any experience with the Nikon 3200? I think it may be a better choice than the L320. I can’t seem to find a L320 in stock anywhere anyway. Thanks…........
