COOLPIX L120 4.2 5 222 222
userfriendly, great for begginers I got my coolpix l120 for christmas and I love it so much. I bring it everywhere esspecially since i live in DC i can take pictures of the monuments a lot which is great. My friends bring their cameras and we have photoshoots which are so fun and the pictures i take ussually come out great (unless i have a shaky hand when not using the tripod) January 20, 2014
Excellent result... NICE HANDY.. USER FRENDLY... EXCELLENT PHOTO SHOOTING. April 20, 2013
Excellent camera for the intermediate photograher 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. January 26, 2013
great camera I love this camera but you have to read the directions, takes great pictures close up and far away January 14, 2013
Better than DSLR! 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. October 12, 2012

Blurry photos, using auto modes

Was this helpful?helpful2unhelpful0
Hi, just got my L120 yesterday. Right out of the box, using easy mode or most of the auto modes, I get blurry pictures if there is the slightest movement. The kids, the dog, even still objects can blur. It is not "camera shake", as I've noticed that as a common answer to blurry image Q's. When zoomed in, I also get blurred images. I can see on the LCD a very focused image for just a second and then it goes out of focus or blurs. I've tried the "rock back and forth" method in attempt to bring the objects of interest into focus manually. I have read one thread here that says change the ISO speed. My wife will be using this camera, and I really can't imagine that she is going to want to play with ISO speeds in the middle of our kids sports events to control blurring. I was hoping the auto or easy modes would handle that for us. Is this a fatal flaw with this model? Please tell me I am missing something here. I was kind of hoping for a camera that we could use on auto mode most of the time, and when we wanted to get serious, we could play with the ISO speeds, etc.

Thank you!!

Answer: 
L-120 Try removing the batteries, turn off all programs, and let the camera sit idle for at least 24 hours. This might fix your problem. If that doesn't work send the camera to Nikon for repair.

Jose is correct. No manual mode on this camera. Typically only DSLR's have this option because the lenses dictate shutter speed, not the camera. Upgrade time!

Answer: 
um... i don't know if you can do it on a coolpix, but in theory you should be able to change the USB *mode* in the camera. they are, by default, set to PCP mode (which, with the right operating system, makes the camera be recognized as an image acquiration source). set it to MPM (mass storage) mode, and you should see it appear as a storage device (but then all PCP-dependent things like tethering will not work). or... which is better... get a card reader, and use that to transfer images to your PC.

Definitely. Easy to operate. Uses AA batteries. Bells and whistles. But the best part is that long zoom. You can really bring in a far away person or object for an up close and personal photo. Great for sports, as well as nature or travel.

Answer: 
Try this. Click on the "Scene" button on the back of the camera. Move the lighted image to the little camera at the very bottom. Click OK. In that mode you can now push the top of the selector button where the little flash icon is. You can turn the flash off, on, auto, etc. As long as you leave the scene selector in that bottom position and have the flash raised, the flash will do what you have told it to do.

Answer: 
Yes. There is a time lapse feature. You access it by selecting the little clock icon on the round multi-selector on the back of the camera. When you activate the little clock icon, then select "on" and pressing the OK button. Now compose and push the shutter release button to take a picture, it gives you 10 seconds before the picture is taken. I light on the front of the camera counts down the 10 seconds.

Answer: 
In auto mode turn down the iso and get a tripod. Or you can try going in to night mode but you will still need a tripod. With low end cameras like this you WILL need a tripod with you most of the time.
Below I posted some very low light dusk time pictures I took using either auto or Dawn/Dusk mode.

Answer: 
It does not offer interchangeable lenses.

It comes with one permanently mounted lens, but then it doesn't need any lens since it has a 21x optical zoom, which is a 25-525mm range equivalent.

Answer: 
The "white balance" can be adjusted to compensate for different types of lighting. Page 55 of the Owners Manual (click on the Support tab and download the manual if you do not have it available) discusses the options and how to select the most appropriate setting for the color balance based on the type of light illuminating the subject. The "white balance" setting may be accessed using the menu function of the camera. Refer to the Owners Manual for more detail.

Answer: 
Go into the shooting menu and select white balance, change from auto to flourescent (tube shaped icon). It is natural to get a yellow tint due the "color" of light flourescent produces. Don't forget to switch back the setting after you are finished shooting under the lights.

I bought my L120 new, with all the cords etc. Recently though, whenever I've tried to plug in my camera to the computer (using a USB cord) the computer does not pick up that there is a camera plugged in. I've downloaded View NX program that came with the camera, and have not had issues with it in the past. However, now it will acknowledge that the camera has been attached to the computer, but it won't pick up that the memory card has pictures that need to be downloaded. It has something to do with the way I'm plugging in my camera, I put the cord in first, then attached my camera while it was on. Today, I've tried several variations of this and none of them seem to work. I'm very frustrated and would GREATLY appreciate any help that anyone could offer. By the way, I'm working off a MAC desktop. MANY, MANY THANKS!

Some NiMH batteries work fine, others not at all. How does the camera know what is in there? Nikon's look too expensive.

The only ones working now are Ultralast 1.25 V (MA number not on the battery).
Another set that did work, but no longer do, are Quest (Harding Energy Inc.) 1.2 V. They test okay and work in a flashlight. Energizer and RayOVac would not work from day one. Lithium and Alkaline work as well but that is an expensive way to shoot a lot. Why is the camera so sensitive? I understand how to check the battery type in the menu and set it accordingly. L120 model.

Answer: 
Not all NiMH battery works well in the camera. The manual specify the use of the MH-73 charger and EN-MH2 which is Nikon Own NIMH battery.

Answer: 
It is the ISO, which is the "film speed". You can let the camera select the ISO for you by using one of the "easy auto modes" (ie portrait or beach) or you can go to auto mode, select, click on menu, and change the ISO accordingly. General Rules and tips for ISO Settings:

* Use an ISO of 100 or 200 when taking photographs outside in sunny conditions.
* If the sky is overcast or it is evening time, then use an ISO within the range of 400 to 800.
* Night time or in cases of low light you might need to set your digital camera ISO to 1600+. If you don't then your photo will appear too dark if at all.

To get close up and avoid blur, use a low setting. The lower the ISO number, the slower the speed however. The higher the ISO number, for example 1600, the faster the speed. So if trying to catch a shot at a sporting event, you may have to play around to get ISO you find desirable.
