This may be too late for the op, but I have an l20, a 10 mpx predecessor to the Nikon coolpix l32. I think not much has changed other than mpx, the optics and user interface look the same, the sensor is the same size. It runs on AA's, I have Rayovac Ni metal hydrides in it right now, but alkaline work fine.
My take is that it is an improvement to my much more modern cell phone camera, but no match to my g5x or 60d. Compared to my cell phone, it has a similar sized sensor, but is better in almost every other way. Optics are much better, esp of you have to zoom at all, focus is consistent, the best shot selector somewhat makes up for lack of image stabilization if you want to exclude its flash. In bright daylight to cloudy or open shade it does well. Sooc the images have low saturation and contrast compared to the cell phone, easily altered afterwards if you desire, and modern firmware may be different. Indoors, you quickly wish for a bigger sensor. Not much control on this camera, no real aperture adjustment.
