Comfortable, balanced handling

Larger ergonomic design for easier shooting

You will feel a difference when handling the COOLPIX L820 for the first time. Its ergonomic design fits comfortably in your hands and puts key controls like zoom and Movie Record right where you want them. This makes for more stable zooming, framing, shooting and video recording, and it means you won't have to take your eyes off the large, bright 3.0-inch display while you're capturing memories.

Enjoy the view

Compose, review and share your photos and HD videos on a vibrant, high-resolution 3.0-inch 921,000-dot VGA display.

Excellent features from the great Nilon brand known for high quality priducts The L820 produces quality images from great quality made camera that features a sharp Nikkor zoom lens. I compared this camera to my old Nikon SLR camera systems that I used for my guilty pleasure hobby of amateur photography. Upon the advent of digital cameras, it took me a while to ease into digital photography, so after years of playing around with the L20, I moved up to L820. I must admit I love the camera's feel, touch, handling, and ease of use for an essentially point and shoot camera. I am very pleased and look forward to creating many memorable images with this diverse tool. August 5, 2014
Great features in a small camera So far so good. My pictures come out blurry however and I hope to figure out how to correct that. May 6, 2014
The Perfect Camera This is my first Nikon and I love it! For the last 20 years I have only owned & used Canon. While I am still exploring/learning about all of the features of the Coolpix L820, this is the best camera I have ever owned. I am highly impressed with the cameras zoom capabilities & the picture clarity when the camera is in zoom mode. The camera is easy to navigate and use. I can honestly say that this camera has made me a Nikon fan for life. Any future cameras I purchase will be Nikon because I am highly impressed with the camera I got for the price I paid. I paid much more for a Canon Powershot and I was never able to get the exceptional quality of picture I have gotten with my Nikon Coolpix. I would highly recommend this camera to anyone, especially people like myself who are not professional photographers but want to capture the shot just right. April 10, 2014
I am impressed with the Nikon Coolpix L850 Right out of the box this one amazing camera! The features are very easy to operate, set up is amazingly simple. I am old school all of the way but I have wanted to update to a digital camera since the old days of film cameras. This camera is a great entry level camera with many great features that I would expect in one many times more the dollar amount. Needless to say I am impressed beyond words! I would recommend this camera to anyone on a budget who wants the affordability, but wants the features of a professional; this one has it all. Kudos Nikon! March 31, 2014
Re..."Happy"... I bought the L820 as a self indulgent retirement gift for my-self this past November.As good as the Canon point and shoot I also own is, I felt limited by it's 720 resolution abilities.The L820 was on sale and the price was too good to pass up.There's a lot to like about this model Nikon, it has more features than I'll ever use which is okay as the features being used so far do a terrific job and exceed my needs and expectations.The only thing I find as a negative is the lens cover.Only once have I forgotten to remove the cover and fortunately the camera didn't seem worse for the experience.Olympus uses a spring loaded design where by four over lapped lens covers permanently attatched move aside as the lens moves out from the housing. It's an excellent design and one I would like to see used by Nikon.Another plus if possible for the price point would be an old fashioned view finder.Sometimes the flat screen on the back would wash out in sun light.A feature I like with the L820 is at the 1080 resolution enlarged images don't lose crispness or clarity.The video is all I could ask for,with good sound capture and fine detailing in the imagery.The use of double A batteries was a surprise but in hind-sight it makes sense.Like Coca-Cola,double A batteries can be found anywhere you go in the world and you can also buy them as rechargeables too.The L820 got a serious work out for the two months I was gone over seas and I'm very happy with my buying it. Really a great camera, so much so I think if used by professionals on a daily basis it would give a good account of itself given its pricing..."Boomer48"... March 10, 2014

Answer: 
Easy panorama mode is explained in the link below. Make sure to watch the demo video.
http://www.nikonusa.com/en/Learn-An...

In panorama mode, the camera take multiple images and stitch them together to create a single image.
After selecting 180º or 360º turn, simple press and hold the shutter button half way down. Once focus is acquired, press and hold the shutter button all the way down and slowly make a 180º or 360º turn (also known as panning) until the bar on the camera screen fills up.

Answer: 
Don't make the mistake that every compact digital camera owner makes, turn the flash off. The little flash is only good for 10-15 feet, regardless of the zoom factor of the camera.

With the flash forced off, the camera will automatically turn the ISO up so you have a chance to get a concert shot. Remember to be as still as possible.

Even better, after forcing the flash to the off position, set the ISO manually. Try 400 at the concert, check the pics for blur. If they are fine, leave it there. If there's a slight softness/blur, try 800, and repeat.

Use the lowest ISO that freezes the action because noise gets bad at 800 and beyond with compact cameras.

And finally, practice at home before you go. Try taking indoor shots without the flash, learn how to turn the flash off and change the ISO manually, learn it by heart so you aren't lost at the show.

Answer: 
Yes the L820 4-seconds exposure can be use to take astro photos. Astrophotography by definition is taking a photograph of an object in space. Pictures can be taken with any kind of camera from a mobile phone to digital camera to a space telecope mounted on a dedicated camera system. The subject matter can include anything from the Moon to the Milky Way (Stars, Planets, Asteroids, Gasses, Comets, etc.)

It all depends on what type of results you want to achieve. Results varies with exposure settings and equipments used. Please check out the following articles in the links below.

Answer: 
The COOLPIX L820 chooses your shutter speed based on your shooting mode and other settings. There are no options in the L820 allow you to manually select a specific shutter speed or aperture.

When you shoot in Auto Mode (not Easy Auto Mode) you are able to choose your ISO settings by hitting the Menu button and selecting ISO settings. You can find more information on changing the ISO sensitivity settings on page 38 of the Reference section of the L820 manual.

When shooting in Auto Mode (not Easy Auto Mode) you can also choose to use faster shutter speeds by changing your Continuous Shooting setting from Single to one of the Continuous options. You can find info on Continuous Shooting on page 36 of the Reference Section of the L820 manual.

Some of the L820's Scene Modes choose the shutter speed in order appropriately capture the elements usually found in that scene. For example, the Sports Scene Mode will utilize very fast shutter speeds to freeze the motion of the sport. The Fireworkshow Scene Mode fixes the shutter speed at 4 seconds to show the movement of the fireworks through the night sky . You can find more information on the characteristics of your camera's Scene Modes starting on page 38 of the L820 manual.

Answer: 
You can use sport mode to freeze movement. You can change the iso if you have it set to Auto. Turn on the AF-Assist ON when you are shooting at night to help the camera focus. Refer to the manual. It explains when to use a specific scene mode, and when to select a specific setting for certain situation.

I use my camera with non-rechargable duracell turbo batteries, which have an indicator showing the amount of energy left in each one of the batteries. When I use the camera and the white screen, saying that the batteries are exhausted appears, and I turn the camera off and check the charge of the batteries, they are almost full.
When later I try to turn the camera on, there is no problem and the bar on the screen shows that the battery is fully charged but when I take a photo it just automatically turns off again saying that the battery is exhausted.
Can you please tell me if there is a problem with just my camera, or is it with the batteries. What batteries is it best to use-nikon ones: Nikon EN-MH2-B4 Rechargeable Ni-MH Batteries for Coolpix with Nikon MH-73 Battery Charger for EN-MH2, or others???

Answer: 
Make sure to select the correct battery type in the L820 setup menu. Lithium AA batteries last the longest in the L820. The Nikon EN-MH2-B4 Rechargeable Ni-MH Batteries are a close second, and Alkaline's last about half the time as the other two.

I was at an expo, and some photos I thought was in focus turned out blurry. Not sure ethylene. I used a monopod to attempt to make the camera more stable. As I said. I thought the photos wherein focus on the camera. After uploading to my iPad, I found out they were blurred and I'm a bit bummed. I still feel I'm learning the camera. I've used close up/portrait/continuous/sports modes. This was at a Star Trek Con.

Answer: 
Hi,
Your L820 has a good bit of flexibility as to settings, and you've done the right thing by experimenting with the different built-in 'modes' - and your use of a mono-pod is an excellent technique. But, as your question infers, now it's time to explore your camera's ISO settings!

For a typical expo/show floor, 800, 1600 or even 3200 ISO will likely have to be tried. You'll need to 'lock' your L820 in each of these ISO settings in order to experiment. Also, as your images will contain some 'noise' the higher you go with the ISO setting, do try to use the lowest ISO possible that will capture images without blur. Lighting at expo/show floors WILL vary, so a different ISO setting may be needed at each show.
You've got an excellent, versatile camera in your Nikon L820 - experiment with those higher ISO settings and you'll likely achieve the image quality you are looking for!
