Nikon Coolpix L24 (Black)


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.

Nikon Coolpix L24 Preview


Along with all the other Nikon announcements today, they have released an all new entry-level Coolpix digital camera ideal for someone getting their feet wet in digital photography, the Coolpix L24. This Lifestyle-series camera comes with a...

"This is a horrible camera."


Don't waste your money on this camera.

It can take a photo outdoors.

Camera can't take an indoor picture. All photo's come out yellow no matter the white balance setting.

"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.

Right On!!


Don't buy

Small, compact and easy to use

Picture quality need I say more, it stinks! Got to look for another point and shoot hundred bucks down the drain

Good for casual use


I got one to take for vacations - not wanting to expose my DSLR to the beach sand or salt water. It did mostly well, and for the price is really a good value. Don't ask too much of it, and be patient if you want good results. The ... Expand full review

Nice design, compared with other cameras in the same range this was the most ergonomic: buttons are easy to reach, operate, you get fast where you need ; Color quality is good ; Lens coverage is good ; I like the flash - is powerful enough for a decent d

Slow response - plan ahead, not indicated if you want to catch children playing - but for things you can anticipate, it does well ; Flimsy battery cover. I think it is the most likely failure point for the camera. Even being careful, I have managed to fo

Good picture quality, bad design


I've had 2 different Nikon Cool Pix cameras within the last 2 years and both are dead. The slide door feature on the battery compartment doesn't make good contact with the batteries and eventually doesn't close all the way to make contact with...

Nice photos

The battery compartment door doesn't close properly, running out the batteries and eventually camera will not charge

Nikon Coolpix L24 (Black)


I like this camera from a 'bang for your buck" standpoint. I paid $100 for it, and I'm primarily comparing it to my 7-year old D70. Compared to the D70, which was $1300 new - this camera is horrid. The autofocus is slower than heck, it takes blurry...

Light, small, durable...big monitor. Typical Nikon features and functions

Doesn't take particularly good photos." Bad, bad autofocus

Consumer review by:

Should suggest an alterative


If you're going to trash something, at least give us a suitable alternative in the same price range. I received this camera as a gift and have a limited amount of time to exchange it. It's bad enough the reviewer makes me feel bad about my gift, but...
