Summary: One year warranty and product developed issue with lens extending then freezing, up after one year, 8 months. This is my second Coolpix, as the first one, an S640 also quit working within a year. It was still under warranty, fortunately.
Poor choice for indoors or for non-stationary subjects (I get blurry pics no matter what I use for settings)

Summary: I took well over 300 pictures using many combination of settings (auto, scene modes, VR, flash, ISO, etc) at my daughters indoor dance show and unfortunately was not able to find a setting that is going to work acceptably for this situation (indoor, medium light).
Summary: I read all the reviews about this product, and I am a loyal Nikon customer, until now. I have a DSLR Nikon D5100, loved the camera, but the size was uncomfortable. So I went with the Nikon L120. Big mistake. This camera takes a good picture if you are a statue and never move.
Summary: We have a Nikon digital SLR that I use and wanted a simpler point and shoot camera for taking pictures of family and kids. The Coolpix L120 had some great specs and reviews, so we decided to try it.
Summary: I 've had it for a while now and this is my review : The good : Excellent pictures in almost no ligth conditions ! to the point that almost no use of flash is require! its just that great,Ive had other cameras by Canon and none did this good of a job without adjusting any settings!
Returned it... Quick. Not good enough for that kind of money.

Summary: Okay, nobody was expecting DSLR quality from a hyped up super zoom point and shoot, but I did expect it to do better than my old 8 megapixel Canon A590IS. Surprisingly it did not. I was attracted, as I'm sure a lot of people are, by the DSLR look, the impressive zoom capability, and color.
Summary: I bought this camera (NOT from Amazon) to use on a beginners photography course. It was pegged as a bridge/hybrid camera i.e. a camera that has MORE features than a compact, but without the expensive commitment that comes with a digital SLR.
Summary: I thought that buying a Nikon camera will improve picture quality, but this camera is not very good. It takes nice pictures outside, but inside the pictures most of the time are out of focus no matter how still you keep your hand. Mine could not recognise even one face.
Excerpt: Фотоаппарат использую 2года. Очень не довольна. Можно говорить про мои кривые руки,но этот фотоаппарат-новичковый,в нем все уже предустановлено, и настройки (чувствительность, параметры цвета, размер кадра) меняются по-минимуму.
Pros: Удобно лежит в руке. Режимы съемки легко выбираются и понятны даже новичку. Отличные пейзажи и марко в ясную погоду на свежем воздухе. Хороший зум. Но Л120 только для фото на улице при хорошем освещении.
Cons: Очень плохие снимки движущихся объектов (детей) в помещении, да и статичные тоже не на 5 баллов (и это со вспышкой). Стабилизация никакая. Фокусировка медленная и не точная. Может предварительно показать фокус в Центре кадра точно на объекте (при чуть нажатом спуске), дожимаешь спуск, делаешь фот...
