Finally a digital designed like a 35mm,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Nikon COOLPIX L120 14.1 MP Digital Camera with 21x NIKKOR Wide-Angle Optical Zoom Lens and 3-Inch LCD (Red) (OLD MODEL) (Camera)
I recieved this camera just a couple of days ago. Wow what a fantastic surprise! My two previous digital cameras were a Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ10 which I purchased in 2009 for a bicycle tour. While the camera had a lot of good things going for it a couple of problems stuck out which I could not tolerate. 1st and foremost it was very poor in bad lighting and the flash did not compinsate. 2nd..it really needed to be held steady any movement created a blurry picture. Declining light only made the issue worse. My other digital is a Nikon Coolpix 4300 which I bought 6 or 7 years ago to handle an online website. I love that camera, great pictures. good in bad light, not much zoom capability but could deal with that. The big problem...It was designed with an odd memory card which is hard to get and did not hold as much as comparable cameras today. I still use this camera for my website.
Good luck with Nikon and poor luck with Lumix I decided to chance another Nikon. Wow again..quick focus, Holds a common SD card, great zoom capabilities, and best of all it opperates very well in poor light conditions, in fact I forced a poor light condition under my desk with no flash and worked beyond belief! Add to those good reviews the fact they have redesigned the zoom key and placed it on the left side on the lens (can you say 35mm like)long, long, long over due.
If your thinking about one...make the plunge. A+A+A+

Hi, I am looking for a camera with short lag/cycle time between each shot. Can you advise on the cycle time for this cam? Thanks!

This is for G. Girard: Why do you keep stalking people who are giving reviews? really, I mean bullying people about a camera reviews? pathetic!! What is wrong with a succinct review? We can get the gist of what people are saying. We don't need a dissertation to get the main idea. Oh yeah, did I say pathetic? oh I forgot, mean spirited too.
