Good Compact Digital Camera,
This review is from: Nikon COOLPIX L24 14 MP Digital Camera with 3.6x NIKKOR Optical Zoom Lens and 3-Inch LCD (Black) (OLD MODEL) (Camera)
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

Hello. For close-up text, use the macro setting - press the directional button toward the picture of the flower and then select ON. In normal room light, you can disable the flash for this. Hold the camera 1"-2" (yes - VERY close) away from the page, press the shutter release half way down to let it focus and press the shutter the rest of the way.

Yes i am aware of that feature but it is still difficult to take a picture of a whole receipt or a whole page of an cookbook for my mother. But i bet people will find a good use of the mode...
