Digital Camera Description

The Nikon Coolpix L120 is a Large Digital Camera with a 1/2.3" sensor. Its 14 Megapixels CCD sensor offers an ISO 80-6400 sensitivity range which is expandable to ISO 80-6400. This makes it possible to shoot hand-held in relatively low-light. With 14 MP of resolution, sharp prints are possible up to at 240 DPI.

A builtin Image Stabilization mechanism allows the Nikon Coolpix L120 to compensate for camera shake.

This camera features a mechanic shutter that can expose for 1/1000 to 1s. With a fastest shutter-speed of 1/1000, fast action cannot be frozen. Given that is does not support very slow shutter-speeds, this camera is unsuitable for night photography.

Nikon Coolpix L120

The Nikon Coolpix L120 features a Contrast-Detect AF system.

This camera does not feature any seals to protect it against adverse weather, dust and moisture. Care must be taken, just like with most electronics. There is no viewfinder on the Nikon Coolpix L120 and no provision to add one.
