Great Photos - SHARP! Convienient AA batteries
I dropped my old L11 Nikon the other day, and after looking at different brands, I decided that the Nikon L24 had all of my favorite features. The ability to use non-proprietary, everyday AA batteries and SD cards can't be minimized. Seems that a rechargable always goes flat at an inconvienient time. You can pick up spare AA's and SD's anywhere. I use Ebay, and this camera allows great detail photos that enlarge really well...... I can't believe others gave it a less than stellar review. It is 5 stars in my book, an unbelieveably capable camera at an unbelieveable low price!

Love this camera!
This camera is great for travel and takes fantastic photos. I am always impressed with the quality of the photos. The small size makes it a must-have for trips.

Good Camera for a low price
I took this camera to Spain, and it captured some really great shots - and it was good for foreign travel because I didn't need to buy a wall adapter, just a lot of batteries because I took lots of pictures!
I used all of the specialty settings (like beach, party, etc.) and they all came out fantastic.

I also got this camera as a Christmas gift. We played with it right away! Used it for video, many candid shots. Have no complaints and it's fun to use.

Good camera for a beginner
Purchased this camera in Sept. 2011, at a Wal-mart while on a trip. This is a great little camera for someone who is just getting into photography. It is a very reliable camera that takes very good pictures. The sound quality on the video could be a bit better, but it is good for a cheap camera. I love the panorama assist, it is very easy to use. Overall, the camera is easy to set up and use.

I'm still learning all the features of my new camera, but I am very excited that it is so EASY to use! I love that it uses "regular" batteries and the pictures have been coming out crisp and clear. My kids bought this camera for my birthday. The only thing I wish it had was more of a zoom lens. But even at the maximum zoom of 3.5 - the pictures are nice and clear.
I am very satisfied and happy with my Nikon!

Great camera for the price.
Good battery life, and the picture quality is great. The controls are similar to my Nikon SLR so I was able to use it right away. The software was also compatible to my SLR.

Easy to use
I bought the camera a couple of days before a major trip. I haven't used a camera a lot before, so I needed something easy to learn to use. I also wanted a unit for which I could easily change batteries--not a special battery unit. This uses 2 AA batteries, which I could buy anywhere. The photos are great, and the camera is lightweight. The photos were easy to convert from the standard SD card to my laptop. Photos and videos are good. I do need to learn about the many options available for focusing.

Mostly good, one small glitch.
I haven't had time to learn all the bells and whistles yet, but I like what I have been able to discover so far. It is small, but does a lot. Having trouble with the time stamp. It keeps reversing AM and PM even though I have the time zone and date set correctly.

Good product for the price
This product has all the bells & whistles you want for a novice end-user that doesn't want to break the bank to purchase a digital/video camera. It's relatively user-friendly. Photo quality is great.
The only downfall would be the batteries. They run out too fast & there isn't an option for something different (AC vs. batteries for example). If this took a higher grade of battery, one could travel easier with it. As it stands now, one has to carry an 8-16 pack of batteries on any kind of lengthy trip to avoid making a 911-trip to the store.

Overall - a nice product
I bought the Nikon CoolPix L24 on a whim. It was on sale at a local super-store for a very attractive price & I thought I'd give it a try. On all functions, I have had some very impressive results. I do, however, want to add the following points. The included documentation was rather inadequate. My biggest bark about the camera is the battery door - not designed right at all - it is a hassle to open & close.

I loved this camera
The only problem I had with this camera was that the battery compartment opened very easily (But thats probably just because I dropped it a couple times) Clearly it was a good camera because mine was stolen. I hope I can get a new one soon as I used it fro school.

Overall good camera.
This camera takes good pictures and is pretty durable from what I have experienced. I have trouble getting it to take good pictures without a flash. And a few months after I got it the battery slot cover broke so now I have to use duct tape to get it to stay. But overall it takes good pictures and is a good camera.

Easy use and convenience
This product gives a very rich photo details when taken in bright light for a compact of 14 Mb file and very lightweight to carry around versus the DSLR a much heavier format.The prefect camera to have in the car glove compartment or carry around your waist all year round for excursions,camping,biking or for unexpected photo surprise or simply use as a second camera for indoor or outdoor shooting.Its features gives your full control of pictures light situation in manual or auto-mode.For more advanced photographer the EV is very useful to compensate to get the perfect pictures.The only cons are the missing RAW files and the connections for a remote cord release.This products is a two thumbs up for its size and features.

Good Beginner Camera
I have used this camera for a year and a half and have taken some very nice photos with it. Pros are the high resolution (14 MP), small size, and durability. Cons are that it is not very adjustable, photos are often blurry in low light without flash, and it has a slow response time. I would recommend this camera for a beginner.

Picture Quality and Card Battery Door
I took the camera on a long trip and had very good results. However, on returning home, the card/battery chamber door broke and would not stay closed. I thought I had done something wrong, but after reading all the review here with battery/card door problems I wonder. I had the camera repaired by Nikon. I thought the price was high. for example, shipping is very high. they could have shipped it for less than half of what they charged me if they had used the post offices flat rate boxes. Note: I tried ducktape, etc to fix the camera door without good results. So like the camera, but not the total experience. I think they sent me a new camera rather than repairing the old. I will test it before my next trip

This camera is very slow to do anything. For a household camera I am a little disappointed. It can not be used for anything where an exact moment is wanted for capture. Honestly my inexpensive cell phone is quicker to respond to photo opportunity. You push the button and wait for it to take the picture for over a second. My Puppy was doing something cute. I tried to capture the moment. The puppy was laying down. I pushed the button. The puppy was able to get up and playfully bound out of the frame before the picture snapped. I got bare floor.

it's an okay camera, but only for certain features. Some of the pictures are a little unsteady, even if the camera is held perfectly still, and other times, the picture is perfectly clear

L24 GOOD BUT BATTERY DOOR IS WEAK LINK
I find the L24 to be a good camera. 2 Double AA batteries is a plus for me. Battery life is ok. My one complaint is the battery door is very fragile and has broken when camera fell to the floor when closed. Efforts should be made to make this more robust in future models.

A little thick
Well i got this product a few weeks ago and i do really love the picture quality. It's actually very good. I love photography and this is great for beginners or someone on a budget. But i might be exchanging it for a little thinner camera because it's a bit thick, but it's a great camera

i like my l24 camera but do not like
i like my l24 camera but was disterssed i did not recieve a manual with the camera.

This camera is simple to use & takes fairly clear photos.
My specific camera had been used a little over a week when the viewing screen quit working. To be fair, I'm not certain whether it was defective or if I did something to cause the problem. I was unable to get any help online, but by using the toll-free number VERY EXCELLENT help was given with instructions on how to send it back for repair. Will see what happens from here.
