Summary: The Nikon COOLPIX L22 is a small compact camera fits all. It has complete automation that allow you to get quality photos even without any special knowledge. To underline the extreme ease of use, the BSS and the 3 anti-shake functions.
Pros: 3 anti-shake functions, ease of use, automatic scene selection; BSS.
Cons: Memory; Zoom, No battery supplied lithium; ISO; Electronic Stability.
Excerpt: 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.
Summary: The lack of control over exposure and focusing are understandable at such a low price, and the Nikon Coolpix L22 is by no means the worst looking or performing camera in its class. Some may be put off by its use of AA batteries, but those who aren't could do much worse than this no-frills option.
Pros: Large LCD screen, simple to use
Cons: Not the slimmest compact, some may prefer rechargeable Li-ion battery
Summary: The Nikon COOLPIX L22 is a 12 Megapixel budget compact with a 3.6x optical zoom and a 3in 230k pixel screen. For one of the cheapest budget compacts around it is very well equipped.
Launched in February 2010 to replace the best-selling COOLPIX L20, the new L22 is available in black, silver and red.
Pros: Inexpensive and uncomplicated., Excellent build quality for the money., 3in / 230k screen., 12 Megapixel sensor.
Cons: No optical or sensor-shift stabilization., Poor Face detection in low light., Image quality lacking viewed at 100%., No TV cable supplied.
Conclusion: If you’re after ultimate image quality, this is not for you. However, for the casual user who is looking for a camera that’s pleasant and simple to use, this would fit the bill. If only it had a more wide-angle lens, though.

Summary: Nikon's CoolPix L22 is an inexpensive compact digital camera that is suitable for anyone who is new to photography and wants something small and convenient to use. Most importantly, it can take clear and vibrant pictures, as long as there is enough light.
Pros: Relatively crisp and well-coloured images, plenty of scene modes to choose from, comfortable to hold, conveniently takes AA batteries
Cons: Focus was inaccurate at times, can't go from playback to shooting mode by pressing shutter button, very limited settings to play with
Summary: 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.
