a small but powerfull camera
The Nikon Coolpix L820 camera is an excellent camera for the novice holder. It contains a lot of features in the menu as it does not have the dial listing like the higher price camera's does, which is one drawback as when you try to catch a constant moving object or person performing on stage, it is hard to keep track of the action in the window since it moves a lot. (: You have to read the manual good to understand when to look for a specific action to lock the camera on. But the great thing about the camera is it has a great HD video recorder built in and it beats the higher price camera's ($800 to $900) that I own from Olympus and Minolta. By and large a great product for the price..

My parents gave me this camera for Christmas and it is the best present ever! I'm so impressed with the quality of it. The pictures are so clear and the detail is surprisingly crisp! Concerning the video, the picture aspect of it is clear while the audio is also. The only problem I've had with it is the battery/memory card door. It was difficult to open and close and you have to perfectly line it up or else it doesn't close probably. But, after getting the hang of it, the door has become less of a problem, if one at all. Thanks, Nikon for producing such a good camera.
PS, I love the selective color option it comes with. Definitely a bonus for me!

I've been looking for good camera for a long time. Ive had a fugifilm, an Olympus, Kodak, as well as a Nikon coolpix s570 but none of them seemed to do ANYTHING that I wanted. I never seemed to be able to get real crisp clear pictures, which is important for me b/c I want to get into doing some freelance work. I also coach high school volleyball and like to get good action shots of the girls so I can make a collage for them for their senior night. So, quality is important, but I am on a modest budget. The 1080p video was outstanding, and the 30X zoom was awesome. A lot of times when you zoom in the entire way pictures can get more blurry and/or grainy. But these pictures were Crystal clear. The ability to take multiple pictures at once is fantastic for sporting events. And the selective color option has been great for doing some of the girls senior pictures. For the money, you couldn't ask for a better camera.
I've read reviews where one user had the product 24 hrs and then broke. That can happen with ANY brand and ANY model of ANY product.

Great photos and easy to use.
My husband bought me this camera for Christmas because he was tired of me taking photos with my cell phone. He did a great job! I found this camera is easy to use. It was also easy to set up. Got some great photos of the grandkids opening gifts at Christmas. I also took great vedios with ease. I would recommend this camera for anyone who wants to aim and shoot a movie or photo.

Money well spent!!
I am very pleased with the performance of my L820. With everything from the while-driving landscape shots to the family portraits, they have all turned out very well. It took a little bit to get used to the navigation of the menu screens. I feel they could have been a little more user friendly.
But over all, it is a great point and shoot style camera that my entire family, ages 11-20, are able to use and take great photos with.

Absolutely love this camera!!
My husband surprised me yesterday with this lovely camera as an early christmas gift. I've been eyeing this camera for quite sometime now but was debating on buying it because I seen another camera I liked but it was almost $600! SO I came home from work and he surprised me with this spectacular camera. The pictures are awesome, the videos are awesome, I love all of the cool features that are on this camera. I cannot wait to take more pics and videos with this thing!!

Fun and easy to use
Just bought the camera and took it to a nature preserve for some quick pics. Photos look nice and the camera was pretty easy to use. Looking forward to learning more about the camera and taking a bunch of great photos.

I haven't really taken any real pictures... but from the test pictures that I did take they were crystal clear and not grainy. This a good starter camera for Noobs and Hobbyist, because it is easy to use.

LOVE THIS CAMERA
I love this camera!
I have had it for only 2 weeks and i cant complain! I take pictures of my 7 month old and my husband everyday! (so in these past 2 weeks i have taken well over 2,000 photos) The picture quality is amazing for a point and shoot! They are crisp and the color is always true to what you are taking pictures of.
Im just starting out with photography and this is a wonderful camera to start out with! its great for everyday or just every so often!
Eventually i want to get a digital SLR, but this help give me the feel of one :)
Its a great little camera! Im so happy i purchased it!

Excellent Zoom! Great Purchase! Best Camera To Date!
This is an excellent purchase. It works GREAT for sports photos and has a GREAT zoom. It's not exactly a point and shoot. You have to use some of the settings to get the best picture. No problem once you learn what to do. The complaint I have is that the front lens cap is hokey pokey and just hangs there when not attached. Also, you can turn on the camera with the lens cap on which has caused me to have to reset the camera by pulling the batteries. Other than that, I love it. I highly recommend and I give it 5 stars.

Small camera with great zoom.
Nice camera. Great zoom. Great price. Wish it came with a bag.

Great features with ease!
I never had a small SLR that could capture so much with a touch of a finger. This affordable model would turn anyone into a pro! Love it!

GREAT CAMERA--LIGHT ENOUGH TO CARRY ANYWHERE
I HAVE ALWAYS USED THE NIKON BRAND CAMERA. I HAVE BEEN USING MY COOLPX S3000 UP UNTIL TODAY SO HAVE JUST STARTED USING THIS CAMERA. I AM SURE THAT I WILL LOVE THIS CAMERA SINCE IT HAS A GREATER ZOOM.

Does more than my husbands D-50
My husband recommended that this would be a great camera for our office. It was small and compact and was loaded with features of a more expensive cameras and would be easy for everyone to use and he was right !!!

Love this camera, perfect size and great pictures.

I was comparing a few cameras when I was shopping and I'm so glad I went with the Nikon. So far I'm impressed with everything. The low light imaging has exceeded my expectations as well as the clarity of the optical plus digital zoom. My only wish is that it had a view finder. The resolution of the screen is amazing but a view finder would help in high light conditions as well as being able to stabilize the camera up to your eye for those longer shots.
I've included a couple shots as examples:
The moon shots were taken without a tripod standing in my driveway leaning up against a car using full optical and digital zoom.
The fireworks shots were taken from an upstairs bedroom on a tripod from about 3 miles away using full optical and digital zoom.
The butterfly shot was taken during a rare moment when it was actually sitting still.
The macro shot is of one of my favorite craft beverages. Notice the detail on the bubbles and the sweat starting to form on the glass.

Close as you can get to professional!
The Nikon L820 is one of the most feature packed cameras on the market. It is perfect for wildlife, weddings, action shots including any sport and macro photography.
This camera puts the fun back in taking pictures.
Attached is one of my first wildlife pictures taken with this camera. As you can see in the photo, this picture could be good enough to be included in any one of the top wildlife magazines.
Try one out! You won't be sorry!

I had it for 2 minutes and my wife said she wanted it
I had the camera for about 2 minutes, my wife tried it, loved it, and asked if she could have it, sooooooooo its now her favorite. She owns another Nikon, but this "Coolpix" is quick and very easy to use.

Great Compact Camera!
I go this camera a few days ago for traveling purposes as a DSLR can be complicated when visiting other countries. I am very impressed by all the different modes, zoom ability, and overall quality of the photos! It's a beautiful camera as well, I got it in red and feel so cool when I'm carrying it around. I'll be taking it to Costa Rica next week and cannot wait to see all of the amazing pictures it takes!

Bought this camera on sale and it is honestly one of the best cameras I have EVER owned. Sleek, simple but yet so professional for a mom who loves to take gazillion pictures. Best of all, it is a battery powered camera which is the best because double a batteries are always easily accessible! The HD video is amazing as well! LOVE LOVE ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS CAM!
July 9, 2013
This is a great camera. I spent all day exploring all of the features and am very impressed. The clarity is amazing both for macro holding the lens as close as I can without touching the object and when zoomed in 30x. This is a great product for a great price. Make sure to buy a large capacity SD card because HD videos are large files. I am thoroughly impressed.

Love this camera.
Easy to use, point, zoom and click... Love it! Get the eye-fi!

Great Camera overall
I love this camera, its the perfect size and the zoom is great. If you're not looking to spend money on an expensive DSLR, buy this or the P520, definitely worth every penny
