Product Details

Nikon COOLPIX L120 Bronze 14.1 Megapixel Digital Camera, Model COOLPIXL120BRONZE

Features:

Zoom in on a high powered camera at an easy to handle price.

Great photos and superb HD movies begin with Nikon’s high power 21x wide-angle optical Zoom-NIKKOR glass lens. This powerful zoom lens, with a 25-525mm range equivalent, closes the distance between you and your subjects. Capture your son firing off the game-winning lacrosse shot or your daughter’s first ride on a two wheeler. Whether it’s a panoramic shot of the entire family on a favorite sledding hill, or a photo of your children playing in the backyard, you’ll shoot effortlessly and accurately with the COOLPIX L120.

If you’re new to photography, no worries, this camera has intelligent features to help you out. Five-way VR Image Stabilization uses sensor shift to minimize the effects of camera shake, virtually eliminating blurred images. Trick-or-treating with the kids? The COOLPIX L120 has a high ISO speed up to 6400 to capture fast moving or low-light scenarios.

One-touch HD movie recording puts friends and family in motion.

As photo keeper of family memories, you can rely on the COOLPIX L120 to capture great still images that you can print and save. But a band concert without sound is incomplete and a 60-yard touchdown drive without the fleet-footed runs isn’t as exciting. That’s where the COOLPIX L120’s advanced One-Touch HD Movie recording capabilities come in. With the push of a button you’ll instantly be shooting 720p HD movies in full stereo. While shooting you can activate the camera’s zoom function to capture tight shots and close ups. And when you’re ready to share your movies with family and friends, you can use in-camera playback or the convenient HDMI output for simple hookup to an HDTV or computer.

Shoot snowboarders, Frisbee throwers and T-ball players with a single, versatile camera.

Low-light conditions and fast action can defeat some cameras, but not the COOLPIX L120. With high ISO speeds up to 6400, you can be sure that still images and movies will be ideally captured. With Nikon’s Sport Continuous Shooting mode, this camera takes photos continuously and in quick succession to capture fast moving objects. You’ll get great use of the in-camera editing functions, including D-Lighting for adjusting contrast and fine details often lost when shooting in glaring or intense light. You can pick from five color options: Standard, Vivid, Black & White, Sepia and Cyanotype. And when you want to take close up photos, the COOLPIX L120 will zero in as close as 0.4 inches. Don’t hesitate to click away, because you’ll get about 330 stills from the four AA alkaline batteries that come with the camera.

A camera so smart it knows when your subject smiles, warns you if someone blinks, and gets the red out of grandma’s eyes.

Behind every great photo and HD movie is the COOLPIX L120, a camera brimming with technological advances. Smile Timer detects when a subject smiles and automatically takes the photo. Blink Warning identifies when a subject may have blinked and signals you to retake the shot. Face-Priority AF is an innovative face-identifying technology that detects and focuses up to 12 faces automatically.

Red-eye will no longer ruin family photos. In-camera Red-Eye Fix automatically fixes the problem before it occurs. Blotchy, uneven complexions are also a thing of the past with COOLPIX L120’s Skin Softening, which smoothes skin tones. This versatile camera also has 17 Scene Modes that adjust camera settings to selected scenes, assuring great pictures at school plays, backyard barbecues, or athletic events.

A dazzling three-inch color display brings your stills and HD movies to life.

You’ll enjoy composing images from the COOLPIX L120’s bright three-inch LCD color display, which features a dazzling 921,000-dot screen that showcases still images and HD movies in rich detail and enhanced contrast. And for easy photo composition, improved picture viewing, and instant sharing, the LCD monitor’s wide viewing angle and anti-glare coating lets you capture and view high quality images in virtually any lighting condition, every time. .

I purchased this camera last April for my wife to replace her Coolpix L18. For the price, the performance is actually quite a bit better than expected. This camera does seem to be more negatively affected by dirty lenses (pictures will seem "smudged" or poor in resolution if not cleaned regularly). The features built into this camera are amazing. If you have a steady enough hand (or a decent stand), the zoom is capable of capturing far off objects in great detail. I regularly take pictures of specific craters and formations on the moon. The colors are sharp, and the pixel count makes it possible to photograph far off images and zoom in later without creating the dreaded pixelated affect. The built in portrait options create multiple opportunities to perfect your personal photographic style, and the video capture capabilities are almost on the level of most comparably priced handheld recorders. The panorama assist mode enables you to stitch multiple shots together to create beautiful landscape portraits and scenery compilations. The only cons I have found in the nine months we've had it are the slow reload time after taking a picture (with the flash), the inability to increase zoom to full extent when capturing video (capable of "normal" zoom while filming, but not all the camera is capable of), and the relative difficulty associated with placing the focus on the desired object if it is below a certain size. Focusing on a cat from 50 yards away is simple, but photographing a dragonfly up close (while zoomed in) is nearly impossible. I've done it, but it took seven shots to make one worth keeping. All in all, I'd say this is a great camera for anyone. I've even sold some of the pictures I've taken with it and am currently making a calender. I'd most recommend it to someone with a family, seeking to capture those special moments as they happen, but a steady hand will prevail if you choose to use it to other means.

The good revies online are probable by absolute beginners or nikon associated sellers.
Camera cannot tolerate even the slightest movement. It also cannot tolerate dual lighting, case in point an indoor event in a covered stadium which has sunligt coming through the bleachers. The camera goes haywire ! Slow shutter. The firmware upgrade does not help. Great low light stills and still photography in general. The anti shake / stabilizers in the camera are a joke, can't even catch my kid blowing out candles ! Useless for capturing life in motion.

Comments about Nikon COOLPIX L120 Black 14.1 Megapixel Digital Camera:

Always wanted to upgrade to a Nikon built camera to improve on the quality of my pictures. The shots of the moon in various stages and the my two dogs playing on the deck came out excellent. My indoor pictures and the sunrise ones really added to my enjoyment. I tried many of the settings and was pleased with the results.

I feel like a pro with all the pictures I have taken with Nikon Coolpix L120. The camera takes excellent pictures. I have enjoyed using some of the in-camera effects especially the pet picture effect for my dog.

By susiekingfish

Comments about Nikon COOLPIX L120 Black 14.1 Megapixel Digital Camera:

My brother talked me into this camera. I'm a point and shoot gal. He told me I needed a "real camera". Pretty simple to understand. Got a little help from a friend. She guided me to "menu" and "scene" buttons and it's working good so far. The close up feature is really nice. Lots of scene choices. I might become a photographer yet.

"OUTSTANDING" in every way !!!

By The shooter

from Champaign, IL, USA

Comments about Nikon COOLPIX L120 Black 14.1 Megapixel Digital Camera:

The Nikon L120 is easy to use, fun to use and the picture quality is awesome. I have digital cameras of different brands that cost twice as much as this Nikon L120 and they are no match in picture quality. The macro is fantastic. This camera takes the common double A battery that can be found anywhere and they seem to last almost forever...over 900 shots with rechargable Ni-MH batteries. For all it's great features, and it's fantastic picture quality, no other brand can match it in it's price range. The Nikon L120 is my favorite digital camera of all time.
