Last summer, just before the 2nd AL get together, we buoght all 3 of our kids p&s cameras. we bought 2 Canon powershots A410 for the younger 2 kids and Jimmy got the L4. In the year that he's had it, he's never gotten a really good photo from it. Thursday, when we went over to Southwestern, I had him put the camera on one of my tripods. Still no good pics! I took the camera to WOlf and they've mailed it to Nikon service. If worse comes to worse, I'm thinking about getting him another camera - just don't know which one to get! I thought about letting him use my CP995, but don't know if that's too much camera for him or not. One lady at Wolf said that there has been a few L4's that had sensor problems. I hope that's all it is! Anyway, I'm open to suggestions if worse comes to worse and I end up having to buy another camera. Luckily, we have a 5 yr extended warrenty on all the cameras!
