Features

compared to recent digicams
"The camera is also equipped with two image stabilization functions. By incorporating both an image sensor shift vibration reduction (VR) mechanism and electronic VR, the L120 is able to minimize the effects of camera shake than can otherwise lead to image degrading blur, which makes shooting at the maximum telephoto zoom position and under lower light conditions more manageable."
