Nikon 26198B overview

  • 1Description

The Nikon Coolpix L22 Digital Camera (Red) produces images with up to 12.0 megapixels of resolution, and incorporates a 3.6x zoom lens. The 37 to 134mm telephoto coverage gets you close to the action while capturing expansive landscapes.

Shooting in low light is not a problem with Nikon's exclusive 3-way VR Image Stabilization technology that utilizes Electronic VR Image Stabilization, along with Motion Detection, and the exclusive Best Shot Selector (BSS). This ensures that your photos will always look great - regardless of lighting conditions or subject movement. If your subject is better seen in motion, the camera captures high quality movies with sound.

For difficult image situations the camera offers 16 different scene modes. If you are not sure which to choose Easy Auto Mode with Scene Auto Selector lets the camera automatically select the best setting to get great picture. Nikon's Smart Portrait System ensures beautiful portrait and people shots by combining Nikon's innovative smile mode, Blink Warning, In-Camera Red-Eye Fix, and Face Priority AF technologies. Furthermore, the L22 includes Nikon's Coolpix Software Suite for organizing, editing and sharing your photos.

The bright, high resolution 3.0" LCD display provides a wide viewing angle and an anti-reflective coating that allows for easy composition and viewing of photos even in direct sunlight. The camera runs on 2 AA batteries that can be purchased everywhere, so never worry about running out of power.

Smart Portrait System
The Smart portrait system combines the functions of several exclusive Nikon technologies to ensure that portraits and group shots will always look their best.

    Nikon 26198B reviews

    Coolpix L22 Digital Camera (Red) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 208.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Menus & Great Photos in Any Light I like a camera that uses AA batteries and fits in my purse or pocket. This Nikon L22 camera takes clear crisp photos indoors or outside in any light. The museum setting is great for taking photos so the flash does not disturb others. I carry this camera with me so I will not miss a photo when life gets interesting. When in a car accident I took photos of the cars involved and because of this my claim was paid promptly without going to court. This camera takes excellent photos from butterflies to kids sporting events and will even copy documents! This compact is worth the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Camera for the money I bought this camera as a gift for my technically challenged mother- she clutches to her 35mm disposables. I wanted a good camera that didn't have too many bells and whistles. Also, I wanted a camera the took AA batteries and not a specialized battery pack and charger. I wanted a camera that took a SD card. The camera functions are not complicated. With 12 megapixels, I can't wait until my mother sees the difference in her photo quality, especially considering what she is used to. Even though she is used to a viewfinder, I think she will adapt quickly to the LCD screen which was the largest in this price range. I like this camera so much that I bought one for myself.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An amazing camera!!! I love this camera! I never really used a camera much before and wasn't very good at taking pictures. This camera's features make even my shaky hands take amazing shots. I love all of the settings for the lighting and the scene. I took a lot of pictures in the snow and they turned out like a professional shot. Also, the battery life is incredible. I just put in the generic batteries that came with the camera in it and the life lasted for about 200 pictures and 40 videos. I also did a lot of deleting and setting changing, so the battery life really is spectacular. I couldn't have bought a better product.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap, poor battery latch Battery latch is cheap plastic and broke very easily. Sent to Nikon for warranty repair, and they wanted more money to repair than what I paid for the camera. They did not feel it was a warranty issue. This is my second (and last) Nikon point and shoot. Will not buy another Nikon. Search the internet and battery latch problems are common with this camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great camera for the price I love this camera. It is small, lightweight, especially good in low light and has a ton of features for the price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice for the money I carry this camera in my pocket mostly for random shots. The image quality is very good. What you see on the viewing panel is how the color saturation will look like on the finished image. That's nice because I can adjust the exposure compensation if I don't like the first image. You can't go wrong for the modest price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product -- Simple to use Purchased this camera for my Grandparents who wanted a simple digital camera they could operate easily. Works great so far. Camera uses 2 AA size batteries which is actually a boon in disguise. No worries about charging. Just carry some extra AA cells.
