Nikon Coolpix L120 review

 

Nikon's new L-series model wows with its 21x zoom, but what about image quality?

Impressive 21x zoom is great for most scenes ; Colour and detail replication is outstanding ; Image quality is strong overall

Not much manual control ; AF system struggled in low light

Editors' note: Several of the design, features, and shooting options are identical between the Nikon Coolpix L120 and the

The Nikon Coolpix L120 offers a wide, long lens, AA batteries for power, and simple operation at a reasonable price.

The L120 has mediocre photo quality above ISO 200.

An odd mixture of cut-price and highly capable features, but solid image quality and a competitive price add up to an attractive deal.

Nikon COOLPIX L120: A new Nikon with specs beyond its price range

We had concerns that the reach on the lens would write cheques the CCD sensor couldn't cash. While shots are tricky at full tilt, decent images are obtainable
