Nikon Coolpix L22 Review

Point and shoot digital cameras are pretty handy if you cell phone/smart phone isn t one that boasts of an exceptional camera. So is the Nikon Coolpix L22 one to be carried around or will it be forgotten in a crowd? Lets find out!

Package and Contents

The packaging of the Nikon Coolpix L22 is the same as that of its younger brother the L21. The cardboard box houses 2 x AA alkaline batteries, a USB cable, Installation CD, manual, strap and the camera itself.

First Impression

The camera has a plastic body with a brushed aluminum finish with a standard black mat finish at the back and a coloured front (our review unit was a silver one). The camera is no eye catcher unless you pick up one the more fancy colours namely the red, blue or the black one. The device does feel solid in ones hands and the most striking feature is the 3-inch LCD display at the back.


For a box price of just Rs 7450, the device does pack quite a punch with an array of customizable features which begins with a maximum picture resolution of 12 MP, White balance options, continuous shoot, colour tone options (vivid, black and white, etc) and the same backlit options as its predecessor (the L21) such as portrait, landscape, night portrait, indoor, beach snow, sunset, dawn, the list is quite long.

In terms of actually clicking the images, the image quality is crisp at 12MP resolution, and can be viewed with great comfort on your big TV.

The lack of an SD card straight out of the box is felt as the device can click and store only 2 images taken at maximum resolution on the internal memory. The camera also runs on 2 x AA alkaline batteries. Out of an average pair of batteries expect to click around 240 images.

The 3-inch LCD is something that the device can boast about, as images look crisp and clear on it. The quick access buttons along side the menu button are well laid out on the right of the LCD.


All in all this is a good entry level point and shoot for all those hoping to get good picture quality along with control over a few functionalities such as white balance, continuous shoot to name a few.

Box Price- Rs 7450 ($165.55)

12MP camera
3.0-inch LCD display
