Summary: though the camera is fantastically made for capturing images, the worst and worst of it is the battery door: a tiny latch holding the spring loaded AA batteries in their compartment!! once the latch weakens, say good bye to the camera. might as well throw it away...
Summary: I bought this camera about 2 years ago and only just getting to review it. The batter door was broken from first day of use and I've only used it 2-3 times after sticking tape on it and holding it firmly while in use.
Summary: My wife has been asking for a simple video camera for quite awhile. After reading complaints repeatedly listing a weak battery door and Nikon's poor customer service, I am returning the Nikon Coolpix L-24 I bought her today.

Summary: 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.

Summary: Battery door was defective from Day 1 and paid to return it and was told it would cost $73.30 to repair--no warranty...on a defective product! Many others have reported this experience--will never buy another Nikon product.
