To transfer images from the camera internal memory to a computer, you will need to use the camera USB cable.The process is the same as transferring images from an SD card in the camera. You can download Nikon View NX2 software from the link below and Use it to transfer the images. For transfer instructions, check the 'help' tab in the software.

How to set the shutter speed manually ?

When I take photos of moving or shaking objects, it gets blurry. When click the capture button, it is showing the shutter speed as 1/60. I think if i can set it manually to something around 1/1600, it will improve the quality of image. Please tell me how can I set the shutter speed manually ?

You cannot set the shutter speed manually with the COOLPIX L28. You might want to try using the Sports Scene Mode, please see page 34 of your pdf manual for more information. In this mode the camera will focus on the center of the frame, capture a maximum of 6 frames at a amx frame rate of 1.1 fps.

Question

Does the L28 have the auto focus mode or is that covered under the easy auto mode?

I have the L122 and the auto focus brackets don't move anymore so I don't have auto focus, which is why I bought a new camera.

The L28 is suppose to automatically focus when you lightly press and hold the shutter button Halfway down. You should hear a sound and the focus brackets in the center of the screen should lit green. The camera will take the picture without focusing properly if you press the button too hard.

In Scene Mode/Easy Scene Mode, the camera uses face detections when Portraits, Night Portrait, and Pet portrait scenes are selected. A yellow box will show up around the face of a human or pet such as a cat or dog, and when the shutter button is lightly pressed halfway down, the camera focuses on the face. See page 57 of the user manual.

When the camera is set to Auto Mode (Not Easy Auto). face detection cannot be use. The camera uses the center of the screen to focus and the focus brackets in the center of the screen cannot be moved.

Question

Is there a firmware update to use date/time to create unique filenames?

I'm hoping I can find a firmware update for my coolpix L28 that uses the date/time stored in the camera to create unique filenames, instead of starting with dscn0000.jpg and iterating every time I clear the sd card.
I should be able to move pictures from one directory to another without having to mess with their filenames, or risk over-writing once-in-a-lifetime photos.

In NIKON TRANSFER 2, there is an option to rename photos before they are transferred. This option is located under the primary destination tab. You can also rename the photos once they are transferred to your computer. Changing the files names via the L28 menu is not possible.

The L28 was not designed for underwater photography and therefore it does not have an underwater mode like the AW100, AW110, S30 and S31 underwater COOLPIX cameras. The underwater mode is designed to filter out blue so your images are more representative of the actual color of the objects you’re photographing.

Question

Why does it say battery exhausted every time I take a (or even try) picture??!?!?!

I have only had it for a two months or less, and befor this started, it would take beautiful pics! But now it will either turn on and let me take only ONE picture (or not even let me!), or partially turn on by letting the picture capture thingy go out only half way and the screen stays black then immediately shuts of!!!

The COOLPIX L28 digital zoom cannot be disabled. However, a zoom indicator is displayed at the top of the monitor when the zoom control is rotated. Both optical and digital zoom are displayed on the indicator and you can avoid using the digital zoom. The zoom indicator will also turn yellow when digital zoom is engaged. Refer to page 23 of the L28 manual for more information.

There are preset scene modes that you can choose from in the COOLPIX L28 for your lighting conditions (Night Portrait, Dusk/Dawn, Party/Indoors, ect.,) and with Auto mode you can choose your ISO which increases the sensitivity to light.

The L28 zoom cannot be used while a video is being recorded. Moving the zoom switch while a video is being recorded will activate the digital zoom and Image quality degrades when digital zoom is used.
