Nikon Coolpix L120 Superzoom At PhotoPlusThe 14-megapixel Nikon Coolpix L120 superzoom is a great option for people who want a powerful camera without the cost, size or intimidation factor of a DSLR. I hadn’t seen it before so I took a closer look and got some photos of it at the PhotoPlus Expo in New York. It’s got a 21x 25-525mm zoom lens, a 3-inch LCD display, 720p HD video and Program shooting mode to keep things simple. For low light birthday party photos it’s got ISO 6400 sensitivity and sensor-shift Vibration Reduction (VR) and for kids’ sports it’s got electronic VR to help freeze the action.

Nikon Coolpix L120 Superzoom Camera At PhotoPlus Expo

You can’t beat a compact superzoom camera for convenient all-purpose versatility. The L120′s 25-525mm zoom will be able to shoot everything from groups of people in tight spaces to long telephoto shots of distant mountains. You’d literally have to spend thousands of dollars to get that same kind of lens reach with a digital SLR. And with 720p HD video, you can replace your old point-and-shoot camera and your old camcorder with the L120! The Nikon Coolpix L120 costs just less than $300 and comes in this fun red color that we saw at the PhotoPlus Expo.
