Superb overall performance and results Purchased in May 2014 as a replacement for the P100 and have a lighter, smaller camera for exercise walks. I have only Nikon cameras - 5 35mm and 7 digital. As an avid bird watcher, I take many GBs of birds. This L830 photo quality is nearly equivalent to my D7000. I suspect because the pixels are denser in the L830, the range of computer editing is not as diverse as with the D7000. But the L830 provides wonderful photos. The only disadvantage is not being able to use a viewfinder; the screen is a bit difficult to find birds at a distance, but I'm getting better at it. The zoom power is greater than the 80-400mm for the D7000. But I can't complain for about $200 compared to about $3,000. Photos below ranged 8 to 11 mb jpg after editing. I've already recommended the L830 to an Apple business specialist who is headed for India. August 5, 2014
Awesome Point & Shoot I purchased the Nikon Coolpix L830 to satisfy my interest in beginner photography (mostly of my dog & wildlife) and it did so very well. The 34x optical zoom is fantastic, and it does not alter the quality of the photo at all. I also use the camera to take pictures of my brother's little league baseball games, and, although there is some blur on the fast moving ball & bat, everything else is crystal clear. At graduation events, I am able to get close up pictures of the perfect moments from the back row. You will not regret buying this camera. The price, the zoom, and the quality make this the perfect beginner point & shoot camera. July 27, 2014
mine did not come with rechargable battiers mine did not come with rechargable battiers and i was looking for a case for it. i tired taking some night pics and i got some great shots of the moon and my flowers not sure how to use the telephoto setting July 16, 2014
AWESOME CAMERA! Earlier this week, I went looking around for a new camera. Hiking is one of my favorite hobbies and I really needing something compact, and with a grip on the side. This is the only camera I could find with a great lens for great photos and it is compact for something with this much power. Also, the adjustable screen is a great feature! This is a great camera for people who are new to cameras, it is very user friendly and the value is impeccable! May 25, 2014
LOVE THIS L830 Ok, this is a pretty sweet little camera. It makes me look like I know what I'm doing. Not me but the L830 takes great pic's. So if your looking for a new camera take a look at this one you can't go wrong with this one. Well its dumb proof also. it even tells you that you left the lens cap on.it goes to sleep if you forget to turn it off. Love this thing. May 11, 2014

Answer: 
There is kit with a barrel that fits over the lens housing of the L830. That allows one to add 62mm filters. It is of such high quality and so handy, I leave it on all the time.

Sold by Digitalgojo on Amazon. Costs 39.99, and includes three two piece barrel, three filters (UV, which I leave on all the time, CPL, and ND8. And a lens shade. All high quality. Then one can add any 62mm filters.

I also have a question about the flip screen. Do you have more photos of possible positions. Looking at the one picture you have it's hard to tell... Does it just slide down and out, how far does it tilt? Looks nice... Thank You...
