Nikon Coolpix L24

 

Nikon's Coolpix L24 sets itself apart from other budget cameras by including a big 3-inch LCD, but it falls short on image quality.

Large, bright 3-inch LCD. In-camera help system.

High image noise. Poor low-light performance. No ISO control. Uses AA batteries.

Performance and Conclusions The Coolpix L24 isn’t a speed demon. The camera recorded a 0.4-second mark on our shutter lag test, which is pretty good for a camera in its class. The camera takes about 2.3 seconds to start up and capture a shot, and...

Nikon Coolpix L24 review

 

The Nikon Coolpix L24 is nearly identical to the model it replaces, the Coolpix L22 . The only difference is a resolution bump from 12 megapixels to 14 megapixels. The rest of the camera remains the same: easy to use with a 3-inch LCD and AA batteries...

The Nikon Coolpix L24 is an affordable, easy-to-use compact with a 3-inch LCD that produces photos with pleasing color under the right conditions.

The L24 has a mediocre lens, fewer shooting options than competing models, too little control over results, and slow shooting performance.

For easy automatic snapshots of still subjects in good lighting, the Nikon Coolpix L24 is sufficient. If you need more than that, don't bother.

You have to take the bad with the good.

 

I have gotten some very good & flattering pictures from it. It takes better quality photos than a camera that I had previously did.

It takes too long to take a picture. It does not always turn on when I want it to, and hey, there could be a major moment missed in that case! I have to let it rest up a while, and even then its uncertain whether it will work at the moment or not.

If you want a good camera, look elsewhere

 

We bought this camera because of the name. Very dissapointing considering Nikon should be one of the best, no matter how much or little you spend on their cameras.

It worked for about 2 months and we hardly even used it. And, when it worked, it was amazing! But then

After two - three months, the camera made a funny grinding sound whenever we turned it on, which was the lens coming out of the camera. Also, if you even breath on it when you're taking a picture, it comes out blurry, even with the anti-shake feature...

Has feature I needed

 

I do field inspection type work for multiple companies which require my photos have date and time stamp. This camera provided that feature as does the L20 I've used for 2yrs. Overall I am happy with the product for the $85 special price I got it for...

Allows photos to show date and time stamp which I need for my business. Pictures are good but I use lowest pixel setting for what I do. Smaller than the Coolpix L20 I also still use and lower weight. All buttons, but power, now on back which I like...

Shutter lags occasionally especially inside. I do inspection work, mostly outside, but the interior shots are not always the best so I have to take multiples. No rhyme or reason as to when flash will go inside. No cons would keep me from buying this...
