21x wide-angle optical Zoom-NIKKOR lens

Great photos and superb HD movies begin with the COOLPIX L120's powerful 21x wide-angle optical Zoom-NIKKOR glass lens, which closes the distance between you and your subjects. Zoom in on your son's at bat, then zoom out for a wide-angle shot of the whole team.

Smart, fun and easy

Practical tools for better photos and movies

The COOLPIX L120 is so smart, it knows when your subject smiles, warns you if someone blinks and gets the red out of grandma's eyes. Blotchy, uneven complexions are also a thing of the past with the COOLPIX L120's Skin Softening feature, which smooths skin tones. And its 17 versatile Scene Modes adjust camera settings to selected scenes, assuring great pictures at school plays, backyard barbecues or athletic events.

Friends and family in motion

One-Touch HD movies and stereo sound

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 comes in. With the push of a button, you'll instantly be shooting HD (720p) movies with full stereo sound. You can activate the camera's zoom function to capture tight shots and close ups, and when you're ready to share your movies, you can use in-camera playback or the convenient HDMI output for simple hookup to an HDTV or computer.

Compose with confidence

921,000-dot three-inch LCD color display

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.

Capture flawlessly

High quality images every time

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. Plus, 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. And when you want to take close-up photos, the COOLPIX L120 will zero in as close as 0.4 inches.

The COOLPIX L120's Sport Continuous Shooting mode takes photos continuously and in quick succession to capture fast moving objects.

The COOLPIX L120's four-way Vibration Reduction (VR) Image Stabilization System automatically reduces the streaky images associated with shaky cameras.

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

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.

Answer: 
Probably due to camera shake, try it on a tripod and see if that helps. You may also want to check your exif data and see what sort of shutter speed etc you are getting at full zoom as a slow shutter speed will also cause blur.

Blurry photos, using auto modes

2out of 2found this question helpful.
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.

Either you are moving too much, the person/thing you are taking a picture of is moving, or you are on the wrong mode. Click on the scene button and go to the button 2nd from the top. Either use party/indoor, pet portrait for pets, or go to the scene menu and click on sport continuous and choose from the best of those pictures you took.

I just got my L120 yesterday but can't seem to get the Macro Mode to work.

The manual says while in auto mode press the flower symbol (macro mode) on the multi selector and the macro menu is displayed. When I press it nothing happens.

I take nature photos and every photo I tried taking has the main subject out of focus and everything in the background is in focus.

Am I doing something wrong that the macro mode won't work?

I clicked menu and the first icon says [scene] followed by the movie recorder and wrench. Why does the manual so a camera icon with several settings that are not available to me??

Answer: 
If you click on the green scene button and go the the bottom button that says 'Auto mode' and click on it. Then if you go to the menu button it should show a picture of a camera instead of the word scene. That should solve both of your problems.

Answer: 
Yes, I bought it 2 days ago and so far it's great. If you are a beginner or just need an everyday camera, it has great zoom, good picture quality, and easy to use features.

This model offers 19 Digital Vari-program modes. Selecting a program automatically optimizes settings to suit the selected scene, making creative photography as easy as rotating the mode dial.

Answer: 
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.
