Question

why do i get so fewer photos with my sd card than i did with my previous camera?

I have a 250 mb SD card and was able to get more than 100 photos with my previous camera and now I only get about 66 with this one. Is there something wrong with the camera or what should I do to get more photos?

You are getting fewer pictures on this card because the pictures you are taking now have a higher resolution setting than your previous camera. If you want more pictures on your card, you are going to have to turn the resolution down to get them.

I dare say you are getting less because the file size is bigger. When all said and done nothing in this day and age, I would consider getting something bigger, along the lines of at least 2gb

The range of aperture settings is f/3.1 - f/6.7, and the camera chooses the aperture automatically with the L22, and there is no manual aperture selection option. At the widest zoom, the maximum aperture possible is f/3.7, and at full telephoto, the maximum aperture is f/6.7.

If you would like more manual control of your camera, then I would recommend having a look at the P-series COOLPIX, which offer the photography much more control.

Question

My Coolpix L22 has lost the date and time several times now, even though the batteries are new Lithium batteries.

I never lose pictures on the SD card. I contacted customer support and went through the process of removing the batteries and SD card for over 24 hours and did a reset as customer support suggested. I also reformated my SD card which is a SanDisk SD card on your approved list.

Is this a known issue and are there any software updates that might fix it?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Pictures taken are recorded as images files. The size of the files and with it the number of images that can be recorded, depends on the size and quality of the images. Before shooting, choose an image mode according to how you plan to use the picture. See page # 74 of the User’s Manual.

Ex. If you have the Image Mode set to 12M you can only record 2 pictures in the internal memory. If you set it for 3M you can record 16 pictures. Internal memory is approximate 19MB.

Question

How do you fix this camera when the lens will not open nor will it turn on when i press the power button.

My problem began when i threw my camera that was on the picture taking mode (lens fully extended out) on my bed as i got my computer to upload photos and very embarrassingly and carelessly I sat onto my camera, forcing the lens to be pushed back into the camera without pressing a button that would allow the lens to close on its own. I fear that i did great damage to my camera because when i press the power button on the top now, it does not turn on but there is a little noise that sounds like the lens is trying to open and allow the camera to turn on but it fails to do so. What can I do or wear can i go to get this fixed?

Question

L22 camera pictures are split down the middle with one side much darker than other.

Occasionally a picture will come out like it is split down the middle with one side much darker and slightly shifted from the other side. The line between the two halves is very distinct. What makes it even more strange is when viewing on the camera screen, or as a thumb nail on my computer, the picture looks fine. It only shows the split screen when you click on the thumb nail or print the picture out. I will include an example below.

Write protected SD card

We just opened up my son's camera that he received for Christmas. We put in a brand new SanDisk SD card and we keep geting a message that the card is write protected. The lock position on the card is NOT engaged so that is not the problem. We removed the card and placed it back in several times. Sometimes it would work, sometimes not. When we had it working, we turned off the camera. A few minutes later we turned it back on the got the write protected message again. What is the problem???

Just press the Self-timer button on the multi selector (press to the left of the OK button, looks like a little clock). The picture will be taken 10 seconds after the shuter-release button is pressed.

Why won't My Camera turn on again?

I asked this in another place on accident. So, my battery didn't say "battery exhausted" yet but I changed the batteries just in case. But now it won't turn on or anything. I've put them in the slots they are suppose in so that's not the solution. So, what do I need to do? Do I just ask for a new one?
