Wm Cook Fine Art), about your new Nikon Coolpix L120. As soon as I saw your pics and read your rave review, I investigated, liked it and talked it over with my camera buff son who investigated, liked it and gifted me one yesterday when we actually went shopping for a new phone system! You should get a commission-- I should get a commission. It's a sweet, light weight, baby with a enough zoom for me. I shot the trees at the edge of our property through the living room window, across the living room from the kitchen, through the kitchen while sitting at a chair at the peninsula--some 100 plus feet away! I think the details are just fine for the first picture taken by a shaken photographer both overwhelmed and thrilled by her son's generosity.
Do you see the little tripod it's on? I took a timed self portrait of myself and even though a facelift should be added to my to-do list, I love having that option to be in the photos on vacation--and as the people interest in the scenes I find so paint worthy.
This camera has only one shortcoming that all digital cameras have: you can't tilt the flash. You can't bounce it off walls or the ceiling, which is very handy for portraiture and photographing very shiny items. BUT I"LL LIVE THROUGH IT. I am so thrilled with this new camera, I had to tell you all. Now, the paintings I've done over the past week and was going to blog today, but was obviously sidetracked, must be rephotographed. I'm anxious to see the detail differences between the Minolta's 8 megapixels and the Nikon's 14.1. Don't you just love new equipment. It's so energizing.
