Product Description


For those consumers who look for two major things in a camera, simple technology and affordability, they should look no further than the Nikon Coolpix L24. For many, too much technology can be overwhelming. But this fun and easy to use camera makes it all so simple. Key automatic functions including Easy Auto Mode and Scene Mode take the guesswork out of shooting, by adjusting settings to optimize results.

Smart Portrait System makes family portraits a snap with in-camera Red-Eye Fix, Smile Mode and Blink Warning to make subjects look their best. It comes equipped with 14 megapixels and a versatile 3.6x optical Zoom-NIKKOR glass lens-ideal for budget conscious consumers looking to remember special occasions with beautiful, high quality images. TV-quality movie recording capabilities offers the opportunity to relive the moment for more memory-making enjoyment. The Nikon Coolpix L24 uses AA batteries and is compact and easy to carry anywhere.

From the Manufacturer

Capture life's best moments.

Don’t miss the moment.
Girls with balloons in a grassy field

Birthdays. Weddings. Baby’s first steps. With the COOLPIX L24, it's never been easier to keep these memories alive. This compact camera makes it simple to shoot clear photos and movies that you can e-mail, post on a family website or print and frame at home.

With the COOLPIX L24, it’s easy to capture life's most precious moments. The Scene Mode system lets you choose from 16 scenes to find the best one for your situation, or you can rely on the Easy Auto Mode to automatically select the best settings for your photos. You'll also catch unforgettable facial expressions with Nikon's Smart Portrait System, which includes a Blink Warning that alerts you when your subject may have blinked; in-camera Red-Eye Fix™ technology that automatically corrects red eye; and Face-Priority that focuses on up to 12 faces.

Batteries

This affordable, lightweight camera is easy to carry and requires easy-to-find AA batteries.

Powerful. Affordable. Unbeatable!

The palm-sized COOLPIX L24 is as powerful as it is affordable. It boasts 14-megapixel recording for razor-sharp photos that will retain their detail on prints as large as 16x20 inches. Plus, a 3.6x optical Zoom-NIKKOR® glass lens features a zoom range from 37mm to 134mm, so you can capture an entire graduation class as easily as you can your favorite graduate.

L24_Zoom_Tele_A4_01
Zoom range from 37mm to 134mm.

The COOLPIX L24 makes it a breeze to shoot quality photos and movies. It has a bright, three-inch LCD monitor so it's easy to see the screen, shoot your picture, and share it with friends. Its three-way Vibration Reduction (VR) Image Stabilization System minimizes the streaky images that result from shots taken with shaky hands. Its motion detector identifies moving subjects and then adjusts the camera's settings to catch the action, so you’re sure to capture a sandlot player's game-saving catch or first bike ride.

Large 3” LCD Display
Memories that move—and move you.

Sometimes a still picture can't preserve a memory like a moving image. School plays. Piano recitals. A child's first words. For moments like these, the COOLPIX L24 shoots TV quality movies—complete with sound—at 30fps with 640x480 resolution. It's never been simpler to capture life's most special moments, and it's never been easier to relive them because you can watch them on the camera's LCD, your TV or your home computer screen.

The camera is easy to use and takes great pictures.

I have had a Nikon Coolpix camera for a little under a year, and it has been nothing but problems.

I didn't have the camera a month when the battery door latch broke.

It is with regret that I must edit my review on the Nikon L24.

Because of a weak design on the battery cover door I cannot recommend this camera. However, I am leaving the original review below this addition because everything I originally wrote about the operation still stands. The 1-star rating I'm now leaving reflects the inadequate closure design and Nikon's refusal to replace the battery cover under warranty.

The battery door cover on mine broke just like the others who have written about the L20 / L24 series Nikon cameras. My defect made itself known to me after 6 months of use. There was never any abuse, no drops, no bumps, camera was kept in a case except when I was taking or transferring pictures.

The lip on the inside of the battery door gave way as I was taking a picture - the door popped open and the batteries dropped at my feet. It took me a minute or two with reading glasses to see exactly what happened and where the breakage/weakness was.

For those interested, I have close-up pictures of the broken area and they can be seen on this page:

[..link removed..]

When I contacted Nikon about this, I was instructed to send in the camera for evaluation. I did (it was worth a $6 gamble). After they got the camera, I was told that the repair would cost approximately $50. I replied back stating that I felt that it was a design flaw and that the repair should be covered under warranty. In a subsequent reply, I was told that the issue is not repairable under warranty but the repair itself would be warrantied for 6 months in case another similar failure occurred.

I chose to NOT pay $50 to repair a $100 camera and will attempt a repair myself later.

I purchased this camera for quick access during vacation and travel. Although the camera cannot zoom very far it still is a very good camera. Takes very clear pictures and can be slipped into your pockets very easily into my pocket. Transferring pictures is very easy just hook up the camera into the computer and click the you want and drag to the desktop. The only problem i have with the camera is that it has a hard time focusing on small texts. For example i want to copy a receipt and send it to the manufacturer it would come out blurry.

Overall this is a great camera and i would highly recommend this for travel or for quick takes

Bought this camera for my daughter. One month later, the battery compartment door retention pins break, rendering the unit useless and there was no way to close the door-not even with tape. I learned of this in July as she was away at school, but it is 'guaranteed' for 1 year! Yay! I followed Nikon's directions to return to them. They advised me that they did not consider this covered as it was possible we may have dropped it or forced the door closed. I calmly explained that wasn't the case AND that we had a friend with the same camera and same problem! ALSO, you can read the reviews of this camera on various sites (or the L-22) to see that it's a common gripe. They would not fix it and wanted $93. After the postage/insurance to ship it to them, I could buy a new camera. But I will not ever buy another Nikon product. I am sticking with Canon as they have covered their product for me in the past OUT of warranty!!! You've been warned.

Although I haven't used all its features yet, I love this camera! The photos are sharp and clear, and it is so easy to use that I just took it out and started shooting. If I could post just one of my dragonfly photos in which you can see every vein in their wings there could be no doubt as to the quality of the photos. My 75 year old father saw how easy it is to use and the quality of the photos and asked me to get one for him. QED
Four stars, though, because the auto focus when using the macro function has difficulty focusing on objects that do not take up enough of the field of vision. It could use a manual focus or an easier way to manipulate the auto-focus.

I purchased the camera to take on a vacation. After six months, the small plastic latch on battery compartment broke. I had to tape it closed which was a huge inconvenience if I wanted to remove the card or needed to change batteries. Even worse, as I attempted to get assistance from Nikon, they wanted to see the camera without talking about it. Well after $11.00 to return to Nikon, I quickly received an email saying they would need about $100 to repair and return. The latch was not covered under their warranty. They could have told me that and I would have saved the shipping costs. Either way, I will not be purschasing anything Nikon and I will tell anyone who listens that Nikon is NOT the camera to buy.

I didn't see that others were having the same problem until today. I didn't have the camera a month when the battery door latch broke. I finally got around to sending it in for repair, knowing that it would be covered on the warranty. But today I received the bill for the repair--$73.30 for the repair since it's NOT covered by the warranty. What a joke!

So I decided to warn others--and then I see all these reviews from folks with the same problem. You'd think that Nikkon would admit that it was a faulty design problem so that they don't lose customers. I'll never go back to a Nikkon!
