For £219, the Coolpix L120 is definitely worth it if you want a big-zoom camera, but just bear in mind that it will struggle to properly expose images when there is lots of bright light or dynamic range. Apart from that, its image quality is decent...

Avec ses formes et son encombrement qui sont bien ceux d’un bridge, le Nikon Coolpix L120 n’en est pas moins un compact. Dépourvu de viseur électronique, la visée s’effectue en effet par l’écran. La formule...

International Review By Datatid on 80

Men det er alligevel et af de mest kompakte af sin type, og kan du leve med de lidt større dimensioner, honoreres du med en forrygende zoom på 21x, der kører fra vidvinkel til forrygende 525 mm. Det er ret vildt, og det er af samme grund...
