Size and weight is a big decision factor when you are trying to find the ideal camera for your needs.
In this section, We are going to illustrate Nikon L120 and Nikon P520 side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Nikon L120 has external dimensions of 110 x 77 x 78 mm (4.33 x 3.03 x 3.07″) and weighs 431 g (0.95 lb / 15.20 oz) (including batteries). Nikon P520 has external dimensions of 125 x 84 x 102 mm (4.92 x 3.31 x 4.02″) and weighs 550 g (1.21 lb / 19.40 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Nikon L120 and Nikon P520. Nikon L120 is clearly the smaller of the two cameras. Its body is 15mm narrower, 7mm shorter and 24mm thinner than Nikon P520.
Here is the back view size comparison of Nikon L120 and Nikon P520.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Nikon L120 and Nikon P520.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Nikon L120 is significantly lighter (119g ) than the Nikon P520 which may become a big advantage especially on long walking trips.
Unfortunately neither Nikon Coolpix L120 nor Nikon Coolpix P520 provides any type of weather sealing in their body, so you have to give extra care especially when you are shooting outdoors.

LCD Screen Size and Features
Nikon P520's 3.2" LCD screen is slightly larger than Nikon L120's 3" screen.
Moreover, Nikon P520 sports a Fully Articulated screen
which you can change the angle and position of the screen almost freely, making it possible to shoot from waist or over the head levels, and especially very useful for shooting selfies and video. On the other hand, Nikon L120 has a fixed type screen which provides almost no flexibility in shooting positions compared to P520.
