This review is from: Nikon Coolpix L24 14 Megapixel Digital Camera - Black (Camera)
I bought this because it was cheap and I wanted to learn about Digicam operations. I got the last one in the shop - and the much-used demo model at that. As this Model is now out of production, I haggled the price down even further as a result, but still got a 3-year replacement/upgrade policy. It will be interesting to see the results if I have to exercise it in the near future!!
I switched it on - set the date and time - and was immediately told the batteries were spent. (?) Replaced batteries... up came screen image... took a useless picture at factory-default setting - was told Memory full. Not sure whether I got the useless picture of my wall or not.
Decided to change batteries and insert Memory Card... switched on and no way to go back and check Date/Time settings... went straight to photo mode and would not allow me to go elsewhere - obviously some serious reading needed. When I've done that, and might even get out and about to take a meaningful photo, I am sure it will be OK for what I expect of it - sort of. Only time will tell, but as I said - it is just a test-bed for the upgrade to SLR capability... if there is money.
