Question about Nikon Coolpix L11 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Noise while recording movies

The sound quality in my coolpix L11 is OK, however, I can hear a "purring" noise on replay. This makes recording quiet scenes impoossible since the only sound on playback 'is the "purring" sound.-No, I'm not recording my cat! I returned my first L11 and recieved another one thinking the first one was defective. I have the same problem with the replacement. There are no menu sound options other than shutter sound, volume and button sound.

Re: noise while recording movies

Hope this isn't a silly suggestion but check for little holes on the front of the camera - one or two usually. This is the microphone. Make sure you are not putting your fingers over them when filming...

My Nikon Coolpix L18 shuts off automatically whilst im recording video. Please help!

Regardless of the size of the memory card, the largest video file you can create on the L18 is 2GB. You can stop recording one clip and then record another and another, and then combine them on a computer to create longer clips.
In a Hollywood movie, you seldom see individual scenes as long as five minutes in length. They're usually put together from much shorter clips, changing viewpoints and camera angles.

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.

Keep putting new batteries in Nikon Coolpix L11 but keep saying low battery???


Check if the charger is working. If yes Firstly, make absolutely sure that you have a pair of fresh HIGH QUALITY batteries, in fact go and buy a couple of duracells. Digital cameras are notoriously power hungry and it is very possible that a pair of cheap standard batteries will not be able to run it for more than a few minutes. Check that the terminals of the batteries and the camera are clean. If none of this works, and you did have fresh alkalines or equiv. then it will have to be returned for repair.

No sound is recording

My 3200 does not play sound in the video mode. I do believe this series of Nikons were issued with silent video only.
