Simple and great pics Great value for under $100.00 It even has a movie mode which I haven't tried yet. February 21, 2011
Piece of garbage After 2 month and the second time I used the camera, Battery compartment Broke. Nikon refused to service the camera under qhe warranty period. Terrible camera over, all Never will buy another Nikon. February 18, 2011
Eh This was my first digital camera, I bought it kind of sponaneously and I wish I would've saved my money until i could by a better one. There's nothing really wrong with it. I goes through batteries pretty fast and if you're trynig to take an up close photo is goes out of focus. It just doesn't take the best pictures. I feel like I waisted my money and I plan on buying a better camera soon. February 13, 2011
Worst Camera Ever! This is the 4th digital camera i have owned in 11 years. My 2000 huge old Digital camera with 5.3 mega pixles works better than this garbage. Cant take a single still photo. Takes forever to get a shot. Not for quick pictures and deffintly not for anyone who wants to caputre different events. It has a setting for sports. well that sure does not help one bit. the Setting for portrat and up close don't mean actually up close, they mean we will sorta zoom, but not actually do anything. Will never buy a Nikon again. Worst comsomer service as well. the three people i talked to game me no help, terrible mood and my favorite part was their general lack of knowlege and if Nikon wants me to pay for my Camera's malfunctions. Heck no. not worth it for this peice of junk. DON'T BUY February 12, 2011
Time Delay I don't understand why the timed delay function works in every mode except smart portrait. That is the main mode I wanted it to work in. There also seems to be an auto-lighting issue if you have the camera in Easy Auto mode. The Auto mode works fine. Either way I got this camera for half price, so I'm somewhat happy about that. I don't recommend anyone pay full price for this camera. I was a loyal Nikon user. February 8, 2011
Coolpix L22 Love my Coolpix L22, but I HATE where the memory card is....the Battery Latch is a pain. Why on earth is the memory card where the batterys are! The last Coolpix I had, the card was by itself on the side of the camera. The latch is a pain to open, and even worse to close. February 8, 2011
Great! This is a great camera! I received it as a holiday gift from my husband. My first digital camera, it replaces my 40-year-old Nikon F, which I've taken all over the world (including some rough trips in the Himalayas) and whose work I've had shows of. The resolution is fantastic, and the huge screen really makes a difference in being able to really see your pictures before you shoot them. I highly recommend Nikon products, and this is a great modern version -- it can be automatic for snapshots or adjusted manually for doing photography as art. January 25, 2011
LOVE IT!! I love my new Nikon Coolpix L22. It's the best gift I've received in years!! It's simple enough for even the beginner digital photographer to use, yet it has all the bells and whistles of more expensive cameras utilized by more advanced photographers. I'm thrilled with the quality of the pictures, regardless of the light or setting, my pictures are turning out with gorgeous, vivid colors. I am also especially thrilled with the educational support provided on NikonUSA.com, where I have spent a great deal of time learning about not only how to use my new camera with all of its awesome features, but also about photography in general as well as how to use the software to take take my simple, great photos to a whole new level that I never dreamed of achieving before, even with my ultra-expensive SLR Film Camera (which, btw, is now gathering dust in my closet). If I sound like I'm gushing, it's because I AM!! I REALLY LOVE MY NIKON, and I really love that I am able to really dig into the whole world of digital photography simply by coming to the website, and I'm not left fumbling my way through it all on my own. I will never use another brand of camera again! January 21, 2011
problems problems do not who know wrote the instrutions because you have to read them very slowly. the battery latch---- have sent back twice and the charged each time . told her we can buy another camera for that price. claims she likes it watch out for that latch when opening it. January 15, 2011
it goes where i go this cam has not left my side, it goes everywhere with me and the pictures are fantastic!! January 5, 2011
Good Beginner Camera The quality of the shots is good--not great--especially for someone just learning how to use a camera. While it doesn't have many options that more professional photographers might want to have, it does take clear enough pictures most of the time. Good for family vacations and capturing the moment. January 4, 2011
Flash rarely fires I was out with friends with my new camera and was completely unable to get the flash to go off. Returning home I continued to be unable to get the flash to go off. No, I did not have the no-flash set, I checked that repeatedly. Finally after powering the unit off and back on I got a couple of flashes, but then no more. I knew to wait until the red light stopped flashing but that was no help. I am going to try to get my money back. January 2, 2011
fuzzy pictures i got this camera because i had the L18 and loved it so when it broke i wanted to get the same kind of camera but the new version i got the L22 for Christmas and all the pictures i take with it come out fuzzy with any mode i am very disappointed with this camera January 1, 2011
Easy to use I love this camera! It's so very easy to use and the pictures it takes are just incredible!!! I am looking forward to taking a lot of pictures for many years to come!!! I highly recommend this camera to anyone!!! Thanks for such an awesome product!!! December 31, 2010
Best Camera in this price range. I wanted the best for the least and this camera delivers. Very easy to use. I shoot a lot of night landcape shots and get great results. No complaints. December 31, 2010
I absolutely LOVED it but.... I got this camera as a Christmas present. At first I thought that this camera wasn't good AT ALL. It only took blurry shots and all the photos had an orange tint. I started playing with it and it started to take amazing pictures. I especially liked the close-up setting, even though it took a couple shots to get used to. I was going to upload some photos to share, but when i handed my camera to my little sister to show her the photos, she dropped the camera on the lens and it dented! It won't turn on or off and all it says is "Lens error". My last camera had been dropped a lot but never did that. December 30, 2010
Very Disappointed I have been so disappointed in this camera. I bought this without doing much research because my camera broke the day before Christmas. All of my photos in the past year have been fuzzy and the color lackluster. I am going to buy a new camera. December 30, 2010
Easy to use, ignore the included software My wife and her brother and I just got this for the in-laws for Christmas. They are upgrading from a very old entry level digital camera. I wasn't involved with the purchase but as I'm comfortable with tech I learned it (it's exceptionally easy to use) and gave them a tour including how to save photos and share by email. The camera is light, has a bright screen and I'm really impressed with how intuitive the controls are. I took a bunch of photos and played with the different modes. Often I like to turn off the auto-mode but I thought it handled photos very well. The colors are very accurate and even when zooming in, the picture is very crisp. On many point-and-shoot cameras the flash washes out the subject. This one handled it very well. The software should stay in the sleeve. It's astonishing how unintuitive and crummy it is. There are too many apps which each handle a small part (registration, panorama, file management, photo editing) that it would be bewildering to the in-laws. I immediately uninstalled and fired up Windows Live Photo Gallery, included for free with Windows. I've never used that software but thought that was what they needed. Now when I plug in the camera Windows asks me for a folder name, imports all the photos, removes them from the camera and opens Windows Live Photo Gallery to view, edit, or share/email them. Do yourself a favor and ignore the Nikon software (if you use Windows). If you have a Mac you know how good iPhoto is already. Last comment - I feel annoyed about the non-rechargeable batteries. That's what you get with entry level. Altogether a good deal so if the batteries aren't a deal killer get this camera. December 29, 2010
Battery door broken just after a year The Coolpix L22 does have some attractive features - SD data storage, AA batteries so you never have to worry about recharging - and it takes good pictures for a point and shoot. However, the plastic battery door latch broke on us just after a year, and I had to dust off my old Canon SD200 to quickly replace it in a pinch. I've never had issues with that one aside from the low pixel count, and it has gone with me across the US and to Australia and New Zealand. December 29, 2010
Very Disappointed This is the second Nikon I have owned both cameras the lenses jammed. The camera that just recently jammed was only 2 months old. It just so happened that it jammed on Christmas Day, I was not able to take pics of my kids! December 27, 2010
Easy to use I just got my "Coolpix" and I love it. I took it to church yesterday and took pictures of just about everybody. You just point and shoot. I have yet to take a bad picture. December 27, 2010
excellent little camera! the many presets this little one has is just great, and it's size is a big plus, not to mention video. the next step will be a big digital slr, but for the price this little guy can't be beat, large view screen, easy to use, and excellent quality December 27, 2010
Good picture quality POOR manufacturing The battery door latch broke when I replaced the batteries and Nikon will not fix the camera. This was the second set of batteries and the camera is only 2 months old. Nikon service basically said I did not know how to replace the batteries and broke the door latch. This is a very simple process to replace the batteries and the camera worked for a few pictures after I replaced the batteries then the door flew open and would not stay closed because the little Plastic latch hook broke off. Nikon at 1 time stood for quality and support this is NOT the case anymore. December 27, 2010
Great features Perfect point & shoot camera. Small & lightweight, perfect to carry all the time. December 26, 2010
uh huh so far first day but i like the camera.. great christmas gift from my hubby.. captured the look on my sons face when he saw that les paul guitar and new amp.. December 25, 2010
name alone says it all i got it for christmas and immediately popped the manual cd in computer. am having little problem understanding some items in the manual and waiting for daughter to arrive to help me with the "learning process". this being my first experience of digital camera i was like a little kid with a new toy and just had to take a pic; the pic color was awesome, so life like. but, still have a lot to learn. December 25, 2010
I'm not new tech literate but this camera was so easy to learn to use even I (and my wife) were using it in minutes. As my wife said, welcome to the 21st century. Great pictures! December 25, 2010
Easy to use starter camera Being a novice at digital photography, and a former "click here dummy" camera owner, this fits perfectly with my use of cameras (simple) and ability to share pictures (much enhanced). December 25, 2010
Canon Convert///Great Suprise! I got this for Christmas from my honey...She knew I needed a camera that was easy to use, not bulky and something I could put in my pocket and go! It works great! December 24, 2010
Easy to use. I love this camera, I took it out of the box and was ready to go in under five minutes. I took a few pictures and went to down load, another five minutes and I had downloaded. Everything was completely understandable (even to me) and fast.I really like how simple it was to work with my computer. Thank you Nikon. December 24, 2010

I have a 250 mb SD card and was able to get more than 100 photos with my previous camera and now I only get about 66 with this one. Is there something wrong with the camera or what should I do to get more photos?

Answer: 
You are getting fewer pictures on this card because the pictures you are taking now have a higher resolution setting than your previous camera. If you want more pictures on your card, you are going to have to turn the resolution down to get them.

Answer: 
I dare say you are getting less because the file size is bigger. When all said and done nothing in this day and age, I would consider getting something bigger, along the lines of at least 2gb

Answer: 
The range of aperture settings is f/3.1 - f/6.7, and the camera chooses the aperture automatically with the L22, and there is no manual aperture selection option. At the widest zoom, the maximum aperture possible is f/3.7, and at full telephoto, the maximum aperture is f/6.7.

If you would like more manual control of your camera, then I would recommend having a look at the P-series COOLPIX, which offer the photography much more control.

I never lose pictures on the SD card. I contacted customer support and went through the process of removing the batteries and SD card for over 24 hours and did a reset as customer support suggested. I also reformated my SD card which is a SanDisk SD card on your approved list.

Is this a known issue and are there any software updates that might fix it?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Answer: 
Pictures taken are recorded as images files. The size of the files and with it the number of images that can be recorded, depends on the size and quality of the images. Before shooting, choose an image mode according to how you plan to use the picture. See page # 74 of the User’s Manual.

Ex. If you have the Image Mode set to 12M you can only record 2 pictures in the internal memory. If you set it for 3M you can record 16 pictures. Internal memory is approximate 19MB.
