The Nikon Coolpix L22 is based around a 4:3 aspect ratio 1/2.3-inch CCD image sensor with an effective resolution of 12.0 megapixels, coupled with a Nikkor-branded 3.6x optical zoom lens. Maximum image dimensions are 4,000 x 3,000 pixels, and an alternate 16:9 aspect ratio is also available. The L22's lens offers actual focal lengths ranging from 6.7 to 24mm, which equates to 37 to 134mm on a 35mm camera - a rather tight wide angle to a moderate telephoto. Maximum aperture varies from f/3.1 to f/6.7 across the zoom range. Ordinarily the L22 can focus on subjects as close as one foot, but in macro mode this range is reduced to just two inches. The Coolpix L22 doesn't include any form of mechanical image stabilization, opting instead solely for a software-based approach to fighting blur from camera shake. Images and movies are framed and reviewed on a 3.0-inch TFT LCD panel with 230,000 dot resolution.

The Coolpix L22 offers sensitivity ranging from ISO 160 to 1,600 equivalents under automatic control. The Nikon L22 stores images on Secure Digital cards, or in 19MB of built-in memory. Data transfer to a computer is catered for with a USB 2.0 High Speed connection. Power comes from two AA batteries, with alkaline disposables in the product bundle. These are said to be good for 240 shots to CIPA standards, while Nikon's own EN-MH2 AA NiMH rechargeables should offer 420 shots.

The Nikon Coolpix L22 ships from February 2010, priced at $130.
