Nikon Coolpix L820 review

 

Considering its street price of less than $200, the Nikon Coolpix L820 boasts an attractive set of specs.

The Nikon Coolpix L820 has better features than you'd expect for its price, including a 30x zoom lens, a high-res 3-inch LCD, and a backside-illuminated CMOS sensor. It's one of the few cameras that is powered by AA batteries.

The L820's autofocus performance is on the slow side when the lens is zoomed in or in low light or indoors. Shooting performance is not quite fast enough for fast-moving kids and pets.

For those who value a long zoom lens, AA batteries, and saving a few bucks, the Nikon Coolpix L820 might be your point-and-shoot.

The Nikon Coolpix L820 was announced in January 2013 and is a superzoom camera with a 30x optical zoom lens. It also has a 16 megapixel sensor and full 1080p HD video recording.

Plenty of optical zoom, Good image quality, Available in a range of colours, 8 fps continuous shooting, Rubberised hand grip, Decent screen resolution, Good battery life, Very wide lens

Error message if you leave lens cap on, Perhaps a little over priced, Quite heavy, No manual controls

Nikon Coolpix L820 ( Black)

 

The star is obviously the 30x zoom lens, which starts at an ultrawide-angle 22.5mm and zooms out to 675mm. That covers a lot of ground and gives you great framing flexibility. Along with that you get a 16-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor (something typically...

Nikon Coolpix L820 Review

 

The Nikon Coolpix L820 is a high-zoom digital compact camera featuring a 30x optical zoom, back-illuminated 16 megapixel CMOS sensor, 1080p FullHD video and EXPEED C2 processor. Nikon cite the L820 as being clever with images by utilising the zoom,...

The L820 doesn't seem to fit into the L series of the Nikon range at all. The L stands for Lifestyle and stands for ease of use, simplicity and is aimed at photographers with a point and shoot outlook. The L820 offers much more than this. It has...

Nikon COOLPIX L820

 

The Nikon COOLPIX L820 is a super-zoom with a 30x range and a 16 Megapixel sensor. It has DSLR styling in a smaller form factor than the more expensive models that offer an even longer zoom range like Nikon's own 42x COOLPIX P520 and Canon's 50x...

30x stabilised optical zoom., 1080p30 HD video., 8fps burst and lots of other continuous modes., 180 and 360 degree panoramas

No Wifi or GPS., Small selection of effects., No PASM modes. Limited manual control., Lens cap jams the lens extension when switched on
