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 14-Megapixel resolution as well as a 3.6x optical zoom. Similar to the new cameras in the S-series, the lens uses high-quality NIKKOR glass.
Similar to the S3100, the L24 offers a 230K dot resolution 2.7-inch LCD screen for viewing photos and video. The L24 does not shoot in high definition, but rather 640x480 (aka VGA resolution). It also doesn't come with a rechargeable battery and opts for AA batteries instead (included).
Nikon COOLPIX L24 features:
- 14-megapixel 1/2.3" CCD image sensor
- 3.6x optical zoom (28-130mm equivalent zoom range)
- Up to 4x Digital Zoom

- 2.7-inch LCD Screen (230,000 dot resolution)
