Pros Large LCD viewer, great auto detection , AA batteries
Cons No "to the eye" viewer.
Summary For the class and price range, this is a great camera. Comparing it to $1000+ cameras is unfair, but CNET seems to like to do these things. I didn't want a "purse phone". I have no need to put my camera next to my tampons. I wanted a camera I can hold without the fear of dropping it.
Using standard AA batteries is great. You getting gouged by the camera company to get a 2nd battery. $60 for a camera battery? Really. Plus if I do run out, I can get batteries at just about any store.
Pros Easy to use right out of the box; nice photo quality - color saturation and detail; good optical zoom; nicely weighted; intuitive options.
Cons Afraid that the disk storage/battery door access is weak and may break after extended use; digital zoom is marginal.
Summary In my opinion the measure of any camera is the image. I have been using a Canon point-and-shoot for 3 years and have been pleased with the photos. My new Nikon L120 has kicked up the image quality several notches. Using the optical zoom only...images are crisp and the color saturation is superior to other cameras that I've had...comparable to my old Nikon SLR. The camera worked well right out of the box and the features are easy to understand. I did not load the package software due to some warnings in other reviews. The price seems reasonable for the camera...although I use my cameras a lot...just could not justify spending $500 for advanced models; I have no regrets/buyer's remorse. The Nikon L120 lives up to expectations.
Pros optical zoom large body, lens, screen
Cons no view finder
