    Love this camera!

    It was difficult making a decision regarding cameras in this price range; Canon, Olympus, Fuji, Samsung, Nikon, Kodak, Polariod, etc., etc., etc.

    All had 5 star ratings, and all had 1 star ratings.

    I based my decision on having had a old Nikon F1, and how much I enjoyed using it.

    So, I chose the Nikon, and I am glad that I did!

    I find this camera easy to use, and it takes excellent pictures.

    Keep in mind that I am a casual photographer, and that the pictures I am taking are for person use, as well as ebay/craigslist.

    The camera interfaces easily with my XP Pro desktop, and uploading is a breeze.

    I recommend it to anyone looking for an inexpensive, easy to use, quality digital camera.

    Let me start off by saying that my last camera was a 3.5 MP and it was good for what I used it for but I let it bounce off the floor one to many times and it has died. That is when I started to look around for other easy to use good quality cameras. I looked at a lot of my friends cameras and started to read all the reviews.

    One of my friends had the Nikon L20 and he loved it. I tried it out too and loved it but I then found out that the L22 was replacing the L20. I asked around and found a friend that had the Nikon L22 and he let me use it for a weekend. What a very nice camera. It did everything I wanted it to do and then some. All the pictures and videos looked awesome to me and I did not have one problem with it at all. All the pics were sharp and focused. What more could you want? East to get batteries! Yup this camera uses AA batteries and I had a boat load of them. Everything in my house seems to use AA batteries so a long time ago I switched everything in my house to rechargeable NiMH AA batteries. They last forever in this camera. Say if you were at a wedding or something and your batteries run out. Just go to your local corner store and get a few easy to find AA batteries or just bring a few extra from home. Life is easy for me. I hate the proprietary batteries that come with most cameras. The other good thing about this camera is it uses standard SD and SDHC memory cards. I got a 8GB SDHC card for $19.00 bucks. It gave me something like 2,200 available pics to take at 12MP. Needless to say I purchased this camera in sliver from and I take it everywhere with me. Remember it is a $100.00 dollar camera and not a $500.00 dollar camera. It doesn’t have all the high end features like touch screen but it has everything I want and it takes really nice pics. I don’t think you’ll go wrong with the Nikon L22. Get it. Trust me :-)

    While it doesn’t have some features of the newer models like a touch screen, this model is pretty simple to use and produces quality pictures. It’s also small enough to carry around comfortably in a jacket pocket and turns on quickly and is ready to go which is nice for taking quick snapshots on trips. All in all a pretty good value if you are looking for a decent easy to use camera for around a hundred dollars.

    I bought this camera 3 weeks ago. Now I am in Tuscany for work, I have been taking pictures of all my weekend trips. This has proven to be an amazing camera.

    Easy to use, no complications, starts in an instant. It has taken great pictures I love it.

    This is a great camera for everyday use, vacation shots, sports photos, and more. We take low-light, no flash photos with this on the “sports” setting for dance recitals and plays. The photos turn out terrific, and people always ask what camera we use because they are so impressed with the clarity of the shots.

    This camera has numerous features and settings. The navigation between settings is pretty intuitive, and the instruction manual has lots more ideas too. It has good video capability for capturing something in a video file when you don’t have a camcorder handy. You don’t need special software to upload photos from this camera – I have a card reader in my computer to do all that.

    The camera does a good job conserving battery life. We use rechargeable AA batteries without any problems for hundreds of photos per charge. It’s compact and fairly lightweight, and it fits into a shirt pocket with ease.

    The large screen makes reviewing photos easy, and deleting ones from the camera is simple with just a touch of a button plus an “are you sure?” question to keep you from potentially erasing something in error.

    The 3.6x optical zoom is an improvement over the previous Nikon Coolpix we had, so this is now the favorite camera in my home! If you’ve had a Coolpix in the past and are thinking about getting a newer version, definitely do it! You’ll find the operations and menu choices very similar to what you’re used to, but with added improvements that you’ll appreciate.

    We’ve not had any problems with the battery cover on this camera or the previous Coolpix cameras we still own. If you break the battery cover, it’s time for a new camera, unfortunately. But it’s very sturdy and reliable, so we’ve never worried about it much.

    Great camera with all necessary features for beginner (and even more advanced). I purchased this camera as a gift for my friend, and it works great. It looks like the best combination of quality and price. Also, I received this camera in no time – literally, on next day.

    First off I am a big fan of Nikon. I own three Nikon DSLR’s and really like them all.

    As of a few months ago I owned one Nikon L3 point and shoot camera and one Canon A720 IS P&S camera. The Canon seemed to be much better and I had a little cash to spare so I bought the newer version of each, a Nikon L22 and a Canon A1100 IS. For what I want, the Canon is much better.

    The Nikon isn’t a bad camera, but it isn’t what I want in a camera. There are not enough manual controls. You can see from a picture of the camera that it does not have the big button function selector on top. You are a slave to the Nikon menu’s and they don’t have nearly the number of choices that I want. There is no Program shooting mode, just Auto. Therefore it will not allow me to choose the ISO setting, which is improtant to me. Like most P&S cameras it does not have a viewfinder so you are left to hold the camera out one or two feet away from you to shoot the picture. I want a viewfinder to look through so that my head helps hold the camera steady, which is VERY improtant in taking a picture with any kind of camera. Some, but not all, of the Canon P&S cameras do have a viewfinder.

    If you can get past the limitations of auto selected ISO settings and can hold the camera steady, there is no problem with picture quality. My guess is that a lot of people who don’t know as much as I do about digital cameras would love the simplicity of the L22, and the L22 is 40-50 bucks cheaper than most Canon P&S cameras so it just depends on what you want in a camera.

    I simply LOVE this camera. I am an over 50 year old artist. I wanted good quality pictures but I don’t really understand the new technology. This camera is so easy to use and gets the quality I want in the pictures. You can even adjust certain elements to improve the picture even more to your liking. I would recommend this camera to anyone.

    I needed a replacement camera, but didn’t have a lot to spend, so this Nikon was my choice. I have had it for a month, and I have been very happy with the image quality, from inside to outdoors, and especially close-ups. The camera does not have a lot of complicated features, but the settings work well. I don’t use the easy auto setting very much, because it doesn’t usually pick the appropriate setting. But I have had good results with the automatic setting, and choosing my own scene mode like macro or sports. I often turn off the flash for better results, and the pictures do not get blurry like on my old camera. The zoom works very well, even after you go past the optical zoom and into digital. The only slight issue I have found is that it is sometimes slow to take the shot and save it so that you can take the next one. This seems to be a Coolpix thing, because my last one did it too. However, my final comment would be on how great the video quality is. I was impressed with both the sound and image quality of the few I’ve taken so far. If you are looking for an affordable basic digital camera, then I highly suggest the Coolpix L22.

    I love this camera! It’s so simple to work. I used to own an older model of Canon and it stopped working within 4 years. Afterward, I start to look for a simple functioning camera. This is it! Everything is pretty much self explanatory. However, if you can’t figure out certain functions then you can always turn to the manual. Also the pictures I took on my old camera looks much clearer with this Nikon camera.

    I recommend this camera for people who are looking for something simple and easy to use. I don’t think it has any special features for advanced photographers who want to do creative things on the camera. But I personally love this camera. Also I would recommend the generic camera bag from Amazon as well. It’s so cheap and fits the camera perfectly.
