    The transaction was super easy and the camera is even better than expected! I use a Nikon DSLR and have been nothing but happy with it. I needed a new point & shoot for work, and this one is a winner for the price.

    I got this camera to augment an Olympus and Fuji that I already have and it is everything I wanted it to be. In my opinion the Nikon software is kind of Cheezy, but then so is the Olympus software, so……

    Takes great pictures.

    My only negative would be that it seems to burn through batteries rather quickly, but that would be a minor issue for me.

    I’d certainly get another and give as gift to anyone wanting a digital camera!!!

    (I still like film, but it’s getting fairly scarce and expensive when you do find it)….

    I’m a very loyal Nikon fan and have been using their digital SLR cameras for years. My “bar” camera has always been a Canon, but I decided to try the Nikon Coolpix since I have always trusted Nikon’s technology.

    The camera takes nice pictures and is a very good price for a 12 megapixel camera. There is a large view screen, which is also a plus.

    However, there are two major downsides to the camera that I wish I would have known before purchasing:

    1) It uses AA batteries — NOT a rechargeable battery pack. This actually makes the camera more expensive in the long run, since you need to constantly purchase AA batteries. It also makes the camera wider than battery-pack cameras since there has to be room for batteries. Hence, a camera that doesn’t fit in your pocket as well as other models

    2) After hitting the shutter button, it takes a LONG time for the camera to actually take the picture. So being out at the bar, everyone has to wait a LONG time holding their smiles… almost uncomfortably long. So this camera is not recommended for use at sporting events where you are trying to capture fast-action motion

    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.

    Happy with my selection (Nikon Coolpix L22 3.6x). I haven’t owned a camera in years, so the user-friendly set up was appreciated. In turning on the camera, it takes you through simple steps. Still learning, but so far snapping indoor photos has worked well. To note, the black hard-carrying case suggested for this camera is great quality, but fits the camera very tightly. I’m worried about damaging the camera getting it in-and-out of the case. Also, wish the case had enough room for spare batteries.

    Goodluck to all in your search!

    Amazing value for this camera! Loaded with features and easy to use. The image quality is excellent. This camera comes highly recommended!

  7. Outdoor Enthusiast Says:


    I am extremely pleased with the quality and durability of this little camera. I personally like the fact that it uses standard batteries available at almost any retailer so it’s always “ready to go”. Picture quality is comparable to any other compact camera I’ve used.

  8. Devon Says:


    I needed a new camera that was a s easy to use as my old Canon. I read up on this camera and felt it was a user friendly, good quality camera. I’m finding that its very slow to make it available to snap another picture and a lot of time, the pictures have come out very fuzzy. I would not recommend this camera. Even though I can’t return it, I think I will buy another camera. Always remember, you get what you pay for. If its cheap in price, its probably cheap in quality

    This is a fantastic camera. The macro feature is the reason I got this camera and it’s great for taking pictures of my aquarium. The sports mode works great for capturing fish. It’s super easy to use.

    The only con is that there are many possible settings and most of them are pretty specific. If you get the wrong setting, then pictures will look odd (strange colors or incorrect focus). However, these were very specific situations (like the aquarium) and once I figured out which setting to use, it works great.

    A great, reasonably priced camera that is intuitive to operate and produces high-quality images. Bought this for my mom as a birthday present, and she hasn’t been able to put it down. :)
