COOLPIX L24 3.2 5 113 113
Not durable Had the camera on two month and because it uses double AA batteries we changed them out often. Not durable for wear and tear on the battery cover. I have to use tape because it broken and they would not warranty. I DO NOT recommend this product. October 28, 2011
Bad software, would not recognize my graphics editor when downloading, love the camera hate what it does!! October 14, 2011
disappointed in service Purchased the camera in July. Used it no more than 6 or 7 times and then the battery compartment lid would not stay shut. Sent if for repairs and was told it was not covered under the warranty. Will cost $67 for repairs. That is more than 1/2 price that I paid for the camera. Guess I'll will duct tape it shut. October 14, 2011
very, very,very. poor!!!! had it for 4to5 weeks,maybe 25 pictures and lens would not go in & camera will not come on...good luck getting NIKON to fix it...no more NIKON PRODUCTS FOR ME!!!!! October 2, 2011
Yikes! This is my second Coolpix that the LCD screen has cracked on in a year.....worked one night, left it on the counter, did not work the next day. It was never dropped or mistreated. Nikon refuses to cover under warranty. Really liked the cameras until that happened! September 19, 2011
Over Expose very clear sharp pix.. BUT.. Out of box it overexposed most outdoor and Flash pix. Red eye correction terrible. Took 20 + pix of grand baby.. had to photo shop all to get rid of red eye. Have contacted Nikon camera going back for repair. The pictures are amazingly sharp.. Dave September 16, 2011
no book have to print about 150 page I gave the camera away .would never buy another nikon product,or carry a laptop & use the disk.I would be happy topay more for he camera if it had a manual September 3, 2011
You pay for what you get. The camera was easy to use but got spoilt in the 1st month it was bought. I will not spend my money on it again September 2, 2011
very unsatisfying customer service, too fragile, easily damaged, and impersonal customer service person August 19, 2011
A Nikon product should be much better I am not at all satisfied with the camera. It takes great pictures but here it is a brand new camera and the zoom does not work. Nikon quality control should be a lot better. Also the Nikon software does not recognize that the camera is attached to the computer through the USB port. No Nikon's in this family's future. Becca August 5, 2011
Not hapy with this camera at all. My parents bought this for me as a Christmas present after my old digital camera broke. This just seems to be very ...hmm...poor quality. The lighting NEVER looks right. Its normally an akward yellow tone in artificial lighting, and outside it sometimes acts up as well. Also it is extremely delayed when pressing the capture button. Sometimes it goes right away and other times I have to press it 2 to 3 times. Frustration to the max. May 31, 2011
Bad focus This camera is pretty bad in terms of focus. What I don't get is that it appears to be focused in the viewfinder, but the image taken after isn't. Also, it almost always takes forever to take a shot, which is bad because my hobby involves taking pictures of moving objects and vehicles. It appears to have a mind of its own and only works when it wants to. I've had some experience with a Nikon D40 DSLR and I have to say that it was awesome working with it, and I assumed all Nikon cameras were of great quality, but I am heavily disappointed with this camera and now I'm thinking twice about purchasing another Nikon in general... May 30, 2011
I did not like this camera at all! The focus was awful and it takes everything a long time to load. There are a lot better cameras for the same amount of money! May 16, 2011
FIX THE BLUR THE CAMERA HAS A HARD TIME FOCUSING QUICKLY. MY 3 YEAR OLD NEVER COMES OUT CLEAR.. May 13, 2011
Disappointed I wanted a small camera to take with me. I trusted the Nikon name. None of the photos taken with this camera are clear. There is no excuse for Nikon to produce a camera with such poor quality. I used to be proud to own a Nikon, not now. April 14, 2011
This camera is bad Excuse me. i do not appreciate this kind of camera it is very bad and blurry i am sorry if i am making the maker of nikon is upset but i am sorry... April 9, 2011
I have had this camera for 6 months. The battery cover just quit working because of a broken piece of plastic. I sent it to Nikon for warranty repair. They refused. Said it was not a manufacturers defect. Beware! Lousy customer service. March 8, 2011
do not buy this camera This camera takes horrible pictures. they are blurry. March 7, 2011

Answer: 
Unless you have purchased aftermarket batteries for your L24, they are not rechargeable.....they are everyday AA's.......that is the beauty of this camera.....inexpensive batteries and memory, that are available anywhere! Even rechargeable AA's are inexpensive, and available everywhere.......

Answer: 
The L24 does not have a built-in rechargeable battery. If you were using NiMH type rechargeable AA batteries, most will self-discharge in between 1 and 3 months, and will need to be recharged periodically, even if they are not used.

Answer: 
If a memory card is inserted in the camera, pictures are automatically stored on the memory card. Remove the memory car to store pictures in the internal memory.

Answer: 
I purchased a Clamshell underwater housing for my L24 it is rated for a maximum depth of 130 feet---I also purchased a double handle frame setup for it from beneath the Surface and a video light from Light & Motion the sola 600 total investment was 1100.00--took entire rig to the Dominican Republic in November for a 35 day stay at Caribbean dive college in El Cortecito, first time out took it to 29 feet on top of a coral reef at Catalina Island DR and shot stills. used the sports setting and turned off flash, the pictures are beautiful--then proceeded down to 98 feet, no problems, more great hotos. 2nd dive was in 45 feet of water on the other side of Catalina Is. used same setting---got lots of colrful coral shots. adjusted the red back in with photoshop, also adjusted the white balance using the computer. a week later set the camera for photo mode and entered a freshwater cave and shot about 65 photos in 25 minutes. learned that you need to stabilize yourself more in clear water. some of the shots were blurry from motion. a week later returned to same cave and used video mode and shot a very clear beautiful video 25 mins long another two 13 mins long and a video above water at a coffee plantation... I have since gone and bought two more L24's because they are on special at 79.00 each at best buy and I like the camera

my $50 card from my Broken Sony won't fit. The $100 disposable Sony "Point & Cicks" break every year, so I just re-use the flash card over and over. The Camera guy at Best Buy said the Nikon won't break, but now, do I need to spend another $50 to get a different card? The internal Nikon memory only holds two or three pictures. that's crazy!

Answer: 
Sony cameras take a different type of flash memory, MemoryStick Pro vs SDHC. While the slot appears to be the same one is not compatable with the other.

Answer: 
EXternal memory? depends on how big your memory card is. Internal memory is very small, usually less then 10 pictures at a time.
