Excerpt: I think this camera is just "ok" I have seen better quality from nikon in the past. This was actually dropped once and the zoom jammed, i sent it in to nikon and they were GREAT. even though it wasn't under warranty since it was our fault it got dropped, they still went ahead and were going to fix it at no charge- in the end they completely replaced it!! i'm not sure why...so as far as customer service i gotta hand it to nikon, they were great at that.
Excerpt: A friend bought us this camera about 2 months ago for my babyshower otherwise we would be taking it back. This camera just will not continually take a good shot, once in awhile I can get a decent photo but the majority of the time it just refuses. In fairness, maybe I got a lemon, However, many of the photos come out blurry. This was very hard to tell on the viewfinder, but very obvious on the PC.
Excerpt: It's a nice camera if you like cameras deciding on witchpictures you can keep or not keep! It doesn't allow you to decide witch pictures you want to discard or keep, if the camera isn't satisfied with the picture it simply won't save it! So imagine taking a whole lot of photo's then getting home to down load them to find out that it didn't save some or even all of them.
Excerpt: My mother in law bought me the Nikon coolpix L22 digital camera this past Christmas becuase my camera had gotten stolen back in March. I'm glad to have a camera at all but this camera is not good quality. It feels very light - weight, "plasticy", and dosen't take good quality pictures. There is a long delay between the time you push the button and it actually takes the picture. Most of my pictures don't turn out very well. Especially pictures of my fidgity children!
Excerpt: When we purchased this camera it seemed very user friendly at the store. When we got it home it was NOT user friendly. You need to manually change the flash yourself every single time you take a picture and with 2 toddlers you gotta be quick and don't always have that 10 seconds to turn that flash on. If you remember to turn that flash on each time the pictures are okay but not good enough for having to do it each time.
"Poor Quality Photos - Large Soft Areas Top and Bottom"
23 September 2011
Pros: Easy to use, great close ups except for very small focal point, lightweight, controls easy to use.
Cons: one fourth of top and bottom of all photos no matter the mode (program, auto, closeup, zoom) were fuzzy or soft. Landscape photos were useless. Photos had the trees with no definition to the tops and fuzzy bottoms with only the center of the trees in cl
