Wonderful camera; easy to ue
I love my L120. My husband and I took a 17 day motorcycle trip to Yellowstone, Glacier Park, etc. I took many pictures from the back of our moving motorcycle and they all turned out excellent. The zoom is phenomenal. The camera is very easy to use and very reasonably priced for all that you get. I would highly recommend it.

Superior Camera... Great Price!
I'm a very experienced DSLR photographer and was looking for a small, easy to use camera for my wife and I for vacation travel. I've had my L120 for several weeks now and can offer only high praise for this outstanding camera. It is small and light enough to easily fit in a coat pocket, handles a wrist strap well, and feels comfortable and convenient in our hands. The battery life is fantastic, especially with 4 AA lithium batteries. The low light photos (without flash) are superb, even at ISO 100. The telephoto lens is exceptional at 25-525mm (35mm equivalent). We do use a monopod to steady those long shots with great results. Just read the Getting Started guide, select the AUTO setting, and then smile at your terrific photos. There is little the L120 doesn't do well. A truly superior camera at a very attractive price.

Great Camera - Easy To Use
I love this camera. I have always used the smaller digital cameras and have always wanted more. I have small children and wanted a camera that was ready to go and easy to use. I debated on buying an SLR but decided to go with the L120. I didn't want to have to worry about lenses and learning how to use them. The L120 is so easy to use and is ready when you need it. I'm extremely happy wih my purchase.

great camera for beginners
I am under 18 and trying to pursue my career in photography. This was my first high-tec camera and trust me it's great. I shot real close up pics, beach pics, and perfect sunset pics. It's great if you're starting out because it makes you feel professional when you see that you actually took the picture. I would recommend this:)

Excellent and simple
I bought this camera based on all the features I had read this model had.
I needed a camera for my vacation which was a caribbean cruise and then one week in my hometown New York.
When I got it I was amazed at the quality and clarity of the pictures and the ease in handling it, all the scene selections and the brightness of the screen.
Overall a great product I recommend it to anyone considering on getting the COOLPIX L120

This camera is very lightweight, i.e. great for touring Disney World. It's extremely versatile, allowing great shots from everything from Fireworks displays to indoor theater (low-light) presentations, to quick "We were here!" snapshots.

Excellent product for my needs.
I have owned several Nikon digital cameras and have enjoyed them all. Excellent picture quality and high versatility.

I love this camera.
I am really enjoying this camera. I thought it might be a little to complicated for me but tried it anyway. The instructions are helpful and easy to understand. The night time features are excellent. I'm getting better night pictures than I ever thought possible. I also take alot of outdoor pics and like that I don't have to carry alot of spare batteries with me. I use regular AA's and they last a long time in this camera.

Great family camera!
I bought this camera in July for our summer vacation. I wanted a camera that would take great pictures inside and outside at the beach! Wow, great photos and very easy to use. Also, I can take the cord and plug into my laptop and download my pictures. My inlaws were so impressed by our camera that they also bought one last month!

lot of power
Had purchased a Olympus SP 800UZ tried it out and was not very happy with the results grainy pictures with the telephoto, was in a store and was playing with the Nikon l120 and was impressed by the clarity of the viewing screen and the telephoto across the store. Went home and thought about it opened amazon and read the reviews, thought some more and bought the Nikon and when it arrived I set it up and took a few shots and was totally pleased with the results. The fedex driver was on her way back up the street and I flagged her down and asked if she had a digital camera and she said she did but not a good one. I said today is you lucky day and handed her the Olympus and said enjoy.
Like very much that it uses AA batteries never have to lug around all the chargers and cords.
zoom focus and clarity and color are top notch this camera does what it is rated as top of the line.
con: when loading arcsoft panorama maker error message appears no vedframework dll go to site below and download and save file and place in file for arcsoft in program files and this will solve the problem.

The Nikon L120 has even more features than I need
I wanted a cameraq that would give an amateur (me) decent still pictures AND video with sound. I bought Nikon because of good luck some 22 years ago with a Nikon 35 mm film camera and my Nikon binoculars. I've not used it much yet, but this Coolpix L120 exceeds my expectations so far. Very good quality pictures.

Great camera in this price class.
Has many features not found in this price class. And features that are usable. Some of the cameras have features that are not worth using. The L120 is a simple to use quality camera and am very glad I did my home work when I picked this model. Nikon did a great job.

I was so nervous ordering a camera online and not seeing it in person.. I was so worried I would hate it or have no idea how to use it. But I must say I truly love this camera. It is simple to use and the quality is amazing. I am a beginner in photography and this camera inspires me to take more pictures, and make the art of photography a bigger part of my life. The only thing I would say I didn't like was when I ordered my camera.. no where on the camera description page did it say a lens cap, and usb cable was included with the camera.. so.. I spent an extra $20 on those 2 things, thinking I wasn't going to receive them with my camera. But hey.. always good to have extras I guess. Great camera, Nikon is great.

I have only had this camera for about a month. I just love the quality of the pictures it takes. The close up pictures is really amazing. I will definitely recommend this camera.

This product is the BEST!
The best camera ever in my opinion...GREAT video, pictures, sound. It has given me HOURS of enjoyment. I dropped it and cried all day because it broke...but now it is being shipped in to get fixed...I can hardly wait to have it back!!!

love it! only downside, the menu button could be more user friendly
August 29, 2011
it is a great cam.....super zoom....great pixel quality.....great video quality.....power management is very economic.....batteries last for at least for a week....
a navigation scroll wheel will make it look vibrant.....if we add manual focusing into it is will be much much better...!!

Unfortunately my first Coolpix S51 was stolen. We replaced it with the Coolpix L120. It is rather easy to use. I really like being able to switch to video mode with a push of a button instead of having to go through the menu as I had to with my Coolpix S51. I do wish the L120 had the ability to record audio by itself like the S51 did. I love and miss that one but the L120 with it's 21x's zoom is fantastic. The quality of video is real good as well and it records in stereo. I'm very happy with my Nikon Coolpix L120. I'm sharing my first sunset shot I took with the L120. The trees are in my neighbor's yard across the street.

It will do everything but wipe your a---.
It paid for itself the first day that I had It. I got pics that I had wanted for 3 years.
August 23, 2011
This camera is one gem of a buy! It has the clarity of a SLR, super optical zoom of 21x (which is just too good).. Have been using it for 2 months now and the pictures are so crisp. Lots of capture modes add to the use.
The one outstanding thing is the intelligence of its auto mode. You really dont have to shift to night mode to capture photos at night. The auto mode is very intelligent to adjust accordingly. It is a great buy for people who want the best point and shoot cam (and who cannot afford the P500).
I highly recommend it !!!

Amazing Range - Reach out and touch someone
I bought this camera because of its excellent zoom range ... and I'm not disappointed. Simple to use. Technically efficient. Uses AA batteries. Built in flash. Bells and whistles. But best of all is the fact that even when my grandson is all the way across the football practice field, I can still snap a great shot. He's not just a little dot among the other uniforms. His uniform, his number, even his expression shows up. And he does not have to be embarrassed at his grandfather running out onto the field to "get the shot." And at NFL games, I can take pictures that almost look worthy of a sideline photographer. Truly amazing. I'm a satisfied Nikon customer.

I think it;s great.
I am beginner for the Photography. Always i'm going through the Nikon web site & their rating and review area. I was planning to buy a P 500.
but there are no more differences between P500 & L120. Price is Worth of this Product. Especially Alkaline Batteries good option for the
Power issues. Can you remember how many stills you missing because of your low battery issue. so easily we can found This Battery everywhere. Thanks Nikon !!!!

Not too expensive and has great features.
I just received my Nikon for my birthday and just learning how to use it. It has a lot of good features and I'm sure I will enjoy it. One thing I don't like ... no printed manual! There should ALWAYS be a printed manual included with any camera. I can give a better review later after I have used my camera.

Takes pictures like a professional.
Absolutely love this camera. Got if for a gift and the picture quality just amazes me! Whoever sees the pictures I take is just in awe about how good they come out. Great camera for the money. I am hooked and want to go everywhere and take as many pictures as I can.
July 29, 2011
The 120 does everything I want in a mid priced camera. I truly love it but I am sad that I boutght it a week ago and now I see that if I had waited a few days I could have saved $30. Nikon should refund to give sale prices for at least 30 days areound purchase.
July 28, 2011
very good pictures!!
This camera has ease of use...
it's fun to take pictures with it...
They print out better than I took!

Best Camera you can buy
I just purchased the Nikon L120 and it is the greatest camera i have ever taken pictures on. It has an amazing zoom and wonderful photo quality I highly recommend this to anyone. I am an amateur photo taker and i immediately had great pictures. The only issue is that it does have battery exhaustion on occasion from overuse, but that does not affect the quality of photo taking. Other than that this is a perfect camera!
July 22, 2011
I absolutely LOVE this camera! The colors are super vivid. All my pictures look great easily. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants an easy to use camera that will take awesome pictures without much work.
July 22, 2011
I was looking for a good camera because I like doing Nature photography. I didn't have more money so I bought this L120 and it turned out to be a great investement.Great Macro too

easy to learn
I am still being surprised , by what this camera will do. I am a novice, with an eye for what is unusual or beautiful. I have taken some amazing pics. I stopped thinking , " I wonder if I can capture this". Now I ask myself which setting I should use. I would recomend this camera to ANYONE, with special emphasis on the beginner.
