Nikon Coolpix L22 12.1MP
(Atlanta, GA USA)
I bought my Nikon Coolpix L22, in person from Radioshack, about a year ago, and it is still being used. This camera was one of the easiest to use that I've bought. It takes regular AA batteries.
The camera's best qualities are that it's compact, takes truly beautiful detailed pictures, and the zoom quality is excellent.
It's easy to slip into your purse or bag, and the LCD screen is very bright. Batteries in this camera seem to last longer than ones I've used in other. The video component produces clear, easy to hear videos.
The only few downsides of the Nikon Coolpix L22 are, that you receive the manual on a CD instead of in paper. The cover to put in the batteries though, could be better. Its a bit hard to close and clasp, and easily brakes.
This camera works best for taking indoor/outdoor pictures, or even taking nature closeups. The zoom feature is powerful, especially for such a small camera. I've used it to take pictures in a garden, and it worked great.
