Nikon Coolpix L120 Point and Shoot

The Nikon Coolpix L120 Point and Shoot is the latest in the long line of Nikon Coolpix point and shoot cameras from Nikon. (Reviews) They all have the same cutting edge for their time aesthetic, along with ease of use that Nikon point and shoots are known for. The L120 has allowed me to take some of the best most clear pictures that I have ever taken. The Nikon formula for their Coolpix camera's is simple, Pack all the latest features into an attractive package that just works every time all the time. What types of features am I talking about? For one, high mega pixels in the case of the L120 it's a whopping 14.1 mega pixels so you have very detailed clear shots. The Nikon L120 also comes with a 21x optical NIKKOR wide angle optical zoom lens. Not to mention that you can do one touch HD recording since it seems that everyone is recording every sport and trip to the beach now and either saving it to watch later or immediately uploading it to sites like One of the great things about this camera is it's a little smaller than you regular camera and will fit in a pocket of your coat. Or even a small purse if that's what you have.

Why Choose The Nikon Coolpix L120

Why choose the Nikon Coolpix L120

Why choose the Nikon Coolpix l120? It seems everyone these days has a smart phone that has a pretty darn good camera on it. So why should you buy this Nikon camera. Simple it does everything better than your smart phone. Not just a little bit better but a whole lot better. Your camera phone is probably as good as my first Coolpix camera that I had back in the day when Digital cameras were the new thing and all the rage. But now with the advent of cell phone cameras, digital point and shoot cameras have to do more to compete and they have to do it better. Basically if the pictures really matter then you need the Nikon Coolpix L120, so say you are on vacation and you want some nice pictures you are not going to just take your smart phone you want something a little nicer with more options. So that's why you choose the Nikon L120 because it does more better than any camera out there including your cell phone camera. Personally I like my cell phone camera it's the camera I always have with me. But, when I want or need to zoom into a picture it just doesn't do it for me. Not to mention the fact that it doesn't do any type of low light shooting. So if I have my phone and nothing else and i want to get a simple shot okay but for taking a real photo I want a simple point and shoot like the Nikon Coolpix for all the features it offers in the small package. Take a look at the zoom in the photo below.

Nikon Coolpix L120 Plusses and Minuses

Plusses and Minuses

The plusses are many from the 14.1 megapixel zoom to the one button HD recording feature, there are also sensors that I don't really use like the smile sensor to tell you to take another picture if your subject is not smiling etc. To the low light shooting. Then there is the 3" LCD screen to see the pictures and videos that you have taken. Isn't it amazing that we can do that now. See the picture immediately after taking it remember waiting for our film to develop. There are so many pluses all packed into this little package so you won't leave it at home.

The minuses

There is no manual aperture control. That is something that photographers have trouble with in a point and shoot. But I think that is the idea of a point and shoot to let anyone just point and shoot beutiful pictures. There are also some complaints about the video recording abilities but I have seen no problem with that. For most people I think this will be a great camera. So, i recommend this camera highly in Bronze, Red, or Black whichever you like. Don't forget to get an extra memory card or and batteries. Which actually the Nikon Coolpix does pretty good on batteries. Compared to some of the cameras I've had recently that ate up batteries faster than I could charge them.
