Rated 5 out of 5 by GOOD :) I really like it. and it is very very good condition. i had it for 3 years , i still have it. June 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by pocket power Since we're not taking photos with our phone yet, we wanted another Nikon to fish out of our pockets and shoot pix from the boat or out on our walks. Our existing Coolpix P510, with 42X zoom, is the "heavy-lifter," for picking out wildlife and the L27 takes up the slack with a fine little 5X zoom. Good camera for folks who want economy with high-priced camera results. Delivers photos really well through the Nikon computer software, too. February 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Definitely a good buy for the money! I bought my Coolpix L27 on Thanksgiving based mainly on the price, name, compactness and, I'm not disappointed. I did/do wish it had a stronger telephoto and a case/bag though, of course that would increase the price. I did use the video on it and the sound wasn't as good as hoped for while listening to it on the camera. Overall though, everything considered I'm very pleased. Would give it a 5 easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Still takes great pix ... I bought it because of the AA battery feature as well as the more than sufficient pixel count. It has never failed me and takes darn fine pictures. Sure I have a D300 but this fits in my pocket. The worst picture is the picture you did not take. I am so pleased I may grab some extra cameras for friends while I can still buy this one...
