Nikon Coolpix L22 - digital camera review

 

Looking at the 12-megapixel Nikon Coolpix L22, you can understand why someone would buy it. It's a good-looking compact camera at a low price with three things people would be attracted to: a 3-inch LCD, AA batteries for power, and the Nikon brand. Pop...

Three-inch LCD; attractive; pleasing color in photos under the right conditions.

Mediocre lens quality; too little control over camera; poor low-light shooting performance.

The Nikon Coolpix L22 looks good for its price, but there isn't much to like below the surface.

Nikon Coolpix L22 Review

 

The 12-megapixel Nikon Coolpix L22 is one of the most affordable cameras in Nikon's current line-up. Featuring a 3.6x zoom lens, a 3-inch, 230,000-dot rear screen, electronic vibration reduction, face and smile detection plus Nikon's Best Shot...

The Nikon Coolpix L22 is easily the most simple camera we have reviewed thus far. Providing no user control over aperture, ISO or shutter speed, it gets about as close to embodying the true meaning of "point-and-shoot" as possible. It is therefore not...

Review: Nikon CoolPix L22

 

The Nikon CoolPix L22 is one of Nikon's entries to the compact budget digital camera market. But don't let the budget part fool you. While its price is indeed affordable, it comes packed with enough features that make it feel like it was a pricier camera.

Decent build quality ; 12MP image sensor produces good images ; Affordable price

LCD color doesn’t reflect true image colors

If you have a little more to spend on a budget compact digital camera, I would definitely suggest giving the L22 consideration.
