Easy to use with a high priced feel
Read the "Quick Start Guide" and I was taking pictures in less than an hour. The menu is easy to understand and use and the monitor is clear and bright.

So far, so good
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.

I'm a photographer and own a range of cameras; however, this one is the best for the money. The only thing I would change is there is no 'rapid shoot' option. It takes amazing photos and is very easy to use. Below is a photo I took with the camera, from probably 20+ feet away. Those who say it doesn't focus well apparently are doing something very wrong!

Easy to use and just perfect!
I use my Nikon L120 mostly for filming videos, usually when I play guitar. I must say it makes a really good sound and picture. It really makes good pictures, I really like to take pictures of my dog and flowers with bees. It's easy to use and it makes stunning photos. :)

Best nikon point and shoot
AWESOME CAMERA. The bast camera ever I recommend it to everybody over the age of 10. Great quality pics, High ISO, HD movie. A lot in one small camera

"OUTSTANDING" in every way !!!
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.

I LOVE This Camera!
I have had a love affair with my Nikon D-80 for about 6-7 years now.
But, I just recently got the itch to have a simpler camera to use, now & then.
So after reading many reviews on the web, I purchased the l120.
And I have to say, with a little knowledge on basic photography,
a person can take some gorgeous pictures with this camera!
For under $300., this camera rocks! Granted, the quality is not even in the same league as my D-80, but, I think allot of the negative reviews has mostly to do with not having the settings right. Which is what I LOVE about this camera, great creative control! So once you figure that out, (which is not that hard) I can't see how anyone would not love this camera! Brav-O Nikon!!

Great travel camera.
I love this camera. It is a good size for travel. The only negative is that the bag that came with the camera has no strap. What good is that? So, I will have to buy a camera bag. Other than that, a great camera.

AMAZING! but has ONE DOWNSIDE!
this camera is AMAZING!!! i am just starting to get into photography and this camera is my prized possesion!! I LOVE IT!
the only problem is when i zoom in (and sometimes just normally) i get pictures that are really shaky.
i tried to look in the user manual and it said it may because i press down on the shutter button to hard but even when i press it lightly, sometimes they are still shakey!? my friend had this camera and took amazing pictures so i got it. so far i am EXTTREMELY HAPPY WITH IT! I WOULD HIGHLY SUGGEST IT!

continous sport mode
i own this camer and love it! only thing i dont like about is the shutter speed. so i tried continous sport mode and every time i used the mode the photographs ALWAYS has lines going through it and i dont know why

Great!!... Until now..
This camera was everything I wanted. I've always loved photography and always loved taking pictures. I was so pleased (and still am!) by the quality and reliability of this camera. I bought it May of 2011 and as of recently and today (3/1/12), it keeps shutting off on me. I thought maybe it was just the batteries died, but when I turned it back on, the battery symbol was completely full. It would turn on and be fine, but when I held the button half way down to focus before a shot, it would shut off. It's being really weird and I'm hoping I can get it fixed without paying for a brand new camera... It's frustrating because this camera is my baby and I have never dropped it. There isn't even a scratch on it! Not even a speck of dust! So this is disappointing, but it doesn't mean the camera itself is bad, there's probably something just wrong with mine for some reason.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is just starting out, or even a professional who wants a small camera to take family shots on outings or at home without dragging out all the equipment. (:

Nice pics on low light and video
Nice pictures and videos for the news. Great Battery performance for the high use taking pictures and video (zooming a lot) that I give the camera.
February 19, 2012
really true.. good features with small price
the only shoking thing is ....battery is AA 4nos, but as the quality of picture and mode of operation compensate it.
February 17, 2012
good product for starters
Excellent camera with wonderful features for the beginner in the photographic field

I had been looking for an inexpensive quality camara. I previously only used those cheap snapshot camara's and felt it was time to graduate up to something a little more sofisticated.
It takes great clear pic's and is very easy to use. In fact, my brother who is a professional photgrapher was extremly impressed with the quality of the pic's.

I just bought this camera a few days ago. Its so awesome to be able to do some many different features with this camera. I live in the mountains an this camera is helping me grab the shots I have always wanted. The video recording is way more helpful when it comes to detail an other products that maintain a high quality as well. Because in reality, people want progress flow. And this camera is my own way of making things flow for me. Tie everything together, and everything looks that much sharper.

New to photography? Cant go wrong with this camera
We have had a few cameras, and I got this for my wife for Christmas (The L120) And so far this thing has been amazing, and I do not use that word very often. It brilliant!! Takes breath taking photos and HD video with stereo sound. Bottom Line--- It does what it says it does, and it does it very very well

Good, Quality Camera
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.

Amazing camera for a low price!
I'm 13, and I asked for this camera today for Christmas. Let me tell you, I've used it so many times and the features are amazing! I'm still trying to figure some things out, but it's great to play around with the different features and the flash vs. nonflash. I really love the quality of these pictures, as well. Today, I wanted to take a picture of my little brother downstairs. I was up on the balcony, so I zoomed in all the way, as far as I could. When I took the picture, it was CRYSTAL CLEAR! You could not even tell that it was zoomed in! The zoom is amazing and I love the flash. I give this camera 5 out of 5 stars! Also, I used to have the other coolpix, the S70 touch screen one. I compared pictures, and this one blows the other one away! I also love the texture of this camera and how easy it is to hold. Not to mention, it looks so professional. Every picture I've taken so far has been outstanding and I would not ask for anything better. Also, it is a very low price for such an amazing camera. Me being 13, my parents did not want to buy me an expensive camera. I am glad I did my research and found this one, with many features similar to more expensive cameras. Another thing that I realized is that it runs on regular double-A batteries. I think that this is a plus. With a regular camera, if you don't have the charger or the battery charger handy, you might as well not even have a camera with you, considering the fact that it can die very easily. Since this one runs on double-A batteries, you can find them anywhere. This can be very helpful in quick situations. Overall, I love the product! I wouldn't trade it for anything.

Love this camera
I've always been a fan of Kodak. My last camera, a Kodak 6400, even though it took (and still does) beautiful, sharp pics was only 4 mp. I do a fair amount of mountain hiking and take photo's of the scenery, so I upgraded to a Kodak 14 mp with their higher end lens, and just wasn't happy with it--I knew it wasn't going to satisfy me when out hiking. So I looked at their bridge camera's and still wasn't thrilled with the quality pics---honestly my 4 mp still was better. So I started looking at others.
Several friends use Canon, and I'm not sure how I fell onto the Nikon L120, but the quality looked great. Although most were macro, there were enough scenic to make the decision. And I love it. Sharp, clear crisp pictures, whether on macro or distant scenery & I never have to do much editing. Inside pics a really good, I rarely use the flash.
I'm sure I haven't done near what it can do, but I have used I love. Best choice I made was to spend the money again within a few months and purchase the L120. (although I really wanted the bronze!)

This camera is amazing...it takes the most beautiful pictures ever...It even takes crystal clear pictures in a pitch black room. I love all of the features that go along with it and can't wait to try it out on my new baby soon. I have never owned a Nikon before but I can tell you one thing I will never own anything else.

This Camera is very easy to use.Nice features and great photos.

The ease of use of this camera makes ti great for even someone who has not used a camera very much. Since owning this camera I have taken pictures of snow scenes,sunsets , portraits,ect. The pictures have impressed people with the quality of the pictures. Also my son who seldom takes pictures tryed it and love it and now he wants one.
