Nikon Coolpix 2200


As does its sibling, the Coolpix 2200 has a 3.5-by-2.6-by-1.5-inch, 7-ounce silver-tone plastic body that is able to make the most out of a minimum number of controls, because manual settings are few and far between. The four-way cursor pad handles...

Decent image quality; simple operation; solid macro capabilities.

Memory card and rechargeable batteries cost extra; few manual controls; no diopter adjustment; slow shot-to-shot time with flash; very slow autofocus in dim light.

If 2 megapixels is enough resolution for you, this easy-to-use Nikon is a good starter camera, but like its 3.2-megapixel stablemate, it lacks manual controls.

Nikon Coolpix P3 Digital Camera Review


The 8.1 megapixel Nikon Coolpix P3 has a very impressive 2.5 inch LCD and a 3.5x optical zoom.

Awesome LCD ; Well controlled noise ; Vibration Reduction very effective ; Easy to access settings ; 10 steps of aperture control

Easy to block the flash with your finger ; In order to set the amount of information on the display, you have to dig into the setup menu ; Battery life is uninspiring

The Nikon Coolpix P3 is a high-quality 8 megapixel camera targeted at the photographer who wants a bit more control over their shots. Its sister, the Coolpix P4, is identical except that it doesn't have WiFi capability.

Excellent pictures with very little post processing work. Great macro mode, excellent flash exposures, long battery life, great size.

Owners Opinion: Nikon Coolpix 2200 (franroca, 18 Oct 05)


Tot i que no és una càmera avançada, permet fotos força correctes per a un afeccionat de nivell mig quan és vol rapidesa i poques complicacions.

Owners Opinion: Nikon Coolpix 2200 (EdfromNZ, 10 Sep 05)


I have owned it 12 months, 3500 shots. Easy to carry, easy to use, good photos, quite good even without flash in lowish light. Reasonably rugged. Excellent camera for point n shoot.

None. LCD a bit small, and gets crowded with image info turned on

"great for a first digital camera"


For my first REAL digital camera, I like it a lot. I saved my money, bought it and was very happy. It was easy to figure out... you don't have to be a genius. I was a little unhappy that I had to go out and buy an SD card, but I got a $50 rebate for...

pictures come out good, easy to use, not expensive.

slow flash, have to buy a memory card

Nothing wrong with it.

"Takes decent pictures, but VERY UNRELIABLE."


I have had nothing but reliability problems with this camera. I bought it brand new and took very good care of it (never dropped). After taking around 50 pictures in Hawaii, the camera simply stopped functioning. It would not power up despite being...

Pictures are decent and camera is easy to use.

Broke twice. Display mode very annoying.
