Question about Nikon Coolpix L11 Digital Camera
I have several more advanced (non-Nikon) digital cameras I use for business purposes but wanted a nice point & shoot I could keep in my purse or pocket that wouldn't weigh me down all the time. My husband got me the Coolpix L11 for Christmas and I have still hardly used it due to the fact I cannot get a decent photo out of it. I have tried everything and would like to just pitch the thing.
The problem is, unless I'm taking a picture directly of the sun, the flash goes off if it is on Auto-Flash and 9 times out of 10 it isn't necessary and completely washes out the photo. If I turn the flash off, the photo is blurred unless I have it on a tripod or flat surface.
Unfortunately my manual is in Spanish, but I am capable of figuring out the settings on my own. I've tried all the lighting settings but none are any better. And I restored it to factory settings just in case I totally screwed something up.
I feel like I must be missing something completely obvious as this should be a really easy camera to use.
make sure the switch on the back of the camera in the lower right corner is in the automatic mode, not program or video mode.
Also check if the macro close-up is not selected on the back. (flower shown on the upper left viewer screen if active).
here is a link for your Coolpix L11 owners manual in english @ Nikon.

If you not wish to use the flash, increase the ISO so your photo won't blur
