Clicking/buzzing during Movie mode - I noticed that ever since I purchased my Nikon L1 there is an audible clicking/buzzing sound in movie mode. After reading several reviews I believe that the culprit it the microphone is too close to the autofocus. I have emailed Nikon on the issue and I may return the camera...
My new Nikon L1 lasted three weeks before it went into a lens error mode during a vacation and never recovered. Sent an e-mail to Nikon without any response. Not too impressed!..
Just purchased the Nikon L1. Still learning to use it correctly.
I am interested in using the Picture Project software that came with the camera. I just want to do simple touch ups and enhancements. However the manual for Picture Project came on a CD which makes it awkward to use my computer for actually using Picture Project while also having to read the manual on the computer. I just want to know how to get the pictures from the camera onto my computer. Do I simply use the USB port and then the "Transfer" tab????? After I do some simple editing can I save the pics into a folder on my desktop????..
Bought the L1 so I would have a smaller travel camera instead of the SLR. So far I'm totally disappointed. Wouldn't buy it again !.
I do miss the viewfinder. It EATS batteries,alkaline,metal-hydride..all.
My first set (alkaline)lasted about 50 shots. Shutter and write lag are unacceptable, especially for "occasion" shooting. (e.g.birthday, Christmas etc) Zoom motor "lags" too, so it's difficult frame exactly how you want. It over or under zooms.If you get your exact framing it's usually by chance. Focus in the wider focal lengths is OK, but is blurred as you get more zoom.
Can't really think of any good points. (Not comparing it to the SLR either.).
I bought a Canon a620 as friend's Christmas present, and had opportunity to use it. For $30 more than the Nikon, it's leaps and bounds better. Wish I would have bought one for myself....maybe I will. Anyone wanna buy a used Nikon ?
Well, most peeps know I LOVE Nikon, but as much as I tried to like the L1, it just didnt happen. Their menus seem to have taken a step backwards? Very laggy, and somewhat slow to respond? Not rec'd in my book. Happy Shooting.
I purchased the L1 for my daughter, she got the lense error message after two month, in early March. She is a very light user!.
I sent back for repair under warranty. The camera was returned and she made half a dozen pictures, turned it off etc. Two weeks later (the second time she tried to use it) she got the lens error message again. The Nikon website talks about a hard reset option, but I cannot find anywhere on the web how to do it for the L1. I am ready to send it back again, but not HAPPY. Does anybody else have similare experience?..
Do NOT waste your money on this piece of garbage. In less than a year I have had to return the camera to Nikon multiple times for service. It is absolutely fragile and likely to be rendered inoperable by NORMAL use. If it's a windy day, and you get a grain of dust anywhere on the camera it's DONE, you have to send it back for service. About the only thing I've found it good for, aside from frustrating me when I am 10 miles out on a backpacking trip and have an absolutely amazing photo opportunity that I can't take advantage of, because the camera is INOPERABLE because it was windy and a grain of dust or sand somehow managed to destroy the expensive camera, is that it makes a pretty good paperweight. That is not considering the less than user-friendly shooting menus and operational flaws in it's design.
Nikon seems to have good digital SLR's and provides excellent support to those customers, but this camera is an utter disappointment...
Apparently the Nikon L1 is suppose to have the PictBridge compatibility but when I attached the camera to a Canon CP220 printer which I know works as it did from a friend's Canon camera, would only post communication error from my Nikon. Any ideas what I should do???My camera has worked fine so far.......
My friend bought camera from U.S.A. He lost the C D,can I get the software C D from the company now. pratim v. chakrawar.
