    I've been looking around for how to do this my self, Nikon doesn't have any software for using the camera as a webcam but i hear there is third party programs you could buy. I honestly want to find a "free" way of using my camera, unlike Cannon and many other brands these ones dont work as webcams right away.

    And to use as a Video Cam..... get the FASTEST SD Cards you can find or you will be restricted to about a 30 second Video.... I now have a very fast Card and can record 30-40 Minutes if I wish to.

I'm sorry but you can't use the camera as a webcam. Here is why. There is no function on the camera to stream video.
Also, the camera goes into standby mode after 30 seconds (by default). And 3 minutes after that, it shuts off completely. It does that to save batteries. Again. I'm sorry. Good webcams average between $20. to $50. usd and they are made to work 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

You can use a 4GB memory card in your camera, as long as it's an SD card.

If you get that message, it means you haven't formatted the card for use in that camera. You have to format the card in the camera before you use it.

Even though the solution was not what you prpbably wanted, don't let it stop you from rating it a fixya. I would appreciate it. Let me know if I can help you with anything else, and thanks for coming to FixYa.

Drivers for nikon coolpix camera L11


You don't need a driver.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Nikon Transfer or Picasa.

How can i use the coolpix L11 as a web cam?


You can't. The L11 is designed as a camera, storing pictures and videos onto a memory card (or internal memory). It is not designed to feed live pictures and videos to a computer.

My Camera Wont Turn On..


Will the camera lens come out when the camera is turned on?

Can you still take a photo/flash/sound without seeing the photo?

Chances are the LCD screen has failed and would have to be replaced. (ive seen this screen problem when it goes to white or when cracked)

you basically would have 3 options,

1: send it out for repairs to Nikon? ( may cost close to what you paid)
2: Buy a used or new LCD on an auction site (if your gadget savvy and you can replace yourself or have someone do it for you) avg price $50-75?
3: sell your camera on an auction site to use funds to purchase another camera.

good luck

Transfer photos from pc to SD with coolpix L11


A memory card reader is probably the easiest route. Whatever memory card you use in a reader will show up in my computer as a removable disk drive. (once the drivers have loaded)

You can copy the photos you want to it then safely eject it from the tray.

The camera would work for this as well in the same manner, but the reader is much easier.
