As a semi-professional photographer who primarily shoots film (but is slowly converting to digital) I always have kept at least a digital P&S camera with me to get those "quick" shots that I can't get because of the time involved in setting up the shot in an SLR. My previous camera, the Minolta DiMAGE S414 had been getting long in the tooth and was starting to glitch. A friend gave me his Nikon Coolpix E5200 and I was immediately hooked on Nikon's legendary imaging quality. However, the 5-megapixel sensor in the Coolpix E5200 was short of what I truly needed, so the same friend who gave me the E5200 also let me try out his Coolpix L110. I was blown away with how well the photos turned out! In my quest to buy my own Coolpix L110, I had heard back in February that Nikon was releasing the Coolpix L120, with a 2-megapixel increase over the L110 and several new features. Having read the first reviews of the camera, it seemed like a sure winner, so I took the plunge on March 14th of this year and secured one for myself.
Instantly, I was hooked on it. Right out of the box, this camera is a winner! The settings, user-interface, the sleek design and the nifty zoom selector on the lens barrel makes this camera worth every penny. In the short time I have owned it, I have already taken approximately 1,200 photos with it; everything from nature, bridges, even the sun! (with a solar filter, of course). And with its fantastic 21x optical zoom, I can photograph a car at more than a quarter-mile away and be able to clearly read its license plate!
The only drawback I can see is that Nikon has left out the ability to manually control your aperture and shutter speed settings (instead, leaving that for the Nikon Coolpix P500 which I was unimpressed with). However, those small shortcomings are overwhelmed by the simplicity this camera offers. Itching to get into Panorama photography, without the need for an expensive SLR with built-in panorama stitching? Consider it done! With this camera's Panorama-Assist feature (which overlays a small portion of the image onto the screen for the next shot to be composed), and the supplied Arcsoft Panorama Maker Pro 5 software, Panorama-style photography has never been more affordable. Looking to enhance photos with HDR-like color clarity? Consider that done, also! This camera supplies with it built-in D-Lighting that preserves the color intensity of an image yet bringing out the details otherwise hidden within dark shadows. Also supplied, incase you don't want to edit your images in-camera, is Nikon's own View NX-2, which not only includes D-lighting enhancement filters, it also offers a host of other image-editing capabilities!
In short, this camera has the competition beat! I would recommend it (I have the black version) over anything else.
considering trying to get it fixed vs getting a new camera, I shopped around.
I'm glad I did. This Camera has only one flaw if it can be called that, the lens cover isn't quite as good as the one for my older model. It does however come with a tiny cord to attach it to the camera which was cool! No more setting it down and then looking for it. You need to be careful installing the batteries properly. I ought a couple of the Transcend 16 gb memory cards through Amazon. Walmart had a 4 pack of their Lithium best AA batteries so I bought and used them. I popped them in, popped in a memory card and then had to read the book to see how to turn it on and WHAM! I was taking pics. You can edit them real easy right in the camera as I tested it on my wife getting out of the shower who immediately demanded I remove them. I did.
The menu is now intuitive and easy to maneuver compared to my Nikon Coolpix 885.
I really do need to read the book though since this camera has outstanding features. The picture quality, I can't believe how good it is.
The larger screen is really really nice. The software I had already tried with my older camera. I love it. You get the manual on a CD along with a cd with the software. The Macro which another poster mentioned is just great and one of the reasons I bought this one. I bought a $7 Zeikos case for it and it's perfect.
I'm as tickled as I can be. I was hesitant at first spending more for it than other brands, but my experience with my previous Nikon Coolpix 885 already leaned me towards this one. It's really well packed in it's box complete with cables and straps and 4 Energizer AA alkaline batteries. Being able to get batteries at Walmart is a huge plus. You can buy rechargeable ones with a charger as well.
What's not to like? I spent the extra $ and am 100% completely satisfied.
I'm so satisfied that now I'm going to try seeing if I can get the 885 menu restored through Nikon and give that camera to my niece as it still does take great pics......but not like this unit does.
OH yes, and I DO like the fact it's a bit larger than other compact models.
It easier to hold it steady since I grew up with a lot bigger older cameras.
We're buying some property with outstanding views and I can't wait to take pics with this camera to share with family and friends.
