Here we are comparing two cameras with different body types: Nikon L120, which was introduced in February 2011 is a Small Sensor Superzoom camera with a 14.0MP 1/2.3-inch sensor whereas Ricoh GXR Mount A12, which was introduced in August 2011 is a Entry-Level Mirrorless camera with a 12.0MP APS-C sensor. There is only 6 months difference between L120 and GXR Mount A12 so we are expecting this to be a fair comparison regarding age and technology level.
Comparing an interchangeble lens camera to a fixed lens camera is a bit tricky but we will do our best to make this a fair comparison.
