Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 28 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by all round great camera @ a great price. My wife & I bought a Nikon CoolPix L830 to take pictures of my soon-to-be 2 yr old daughter. After reading some reviews & using it briefly @ the store, is because of the shutter response was much quicker the our other Nikon CoolPix. The CP L830 has an insanely great zoom, & takes great pics, & I've spent less than $200 for it. February 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabulous Camera I bought this camera for quick trips/pictures. It's almost as good as my D300s; almost! I love my Nikon cameras: beautiful pictures, easy to operate, and nice handling. Nikon is the way to go to capture your life. February 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by More than I expected I live in Colorado where views, good views, are abundant. I just now took a shot, out of my back door, that is of a high meadow about 5 miles away. I was very surprised to be able to make out individual tree branches. If there were any animals up there, I would have been able to see them! That picture was taken at full zoom (68x), and was remarkably clear. February 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it I'm amazed by the clarity when the zoom is used. My compact cameras never could make the pictures this good. November 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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

Answer: 
The Smart Portrait System [check your camera’s manual to see exactly what your model camera can do] incorporates a variety of features that will help you take great portrait photos of your subjects. The cameras can detect faces in your shot, making sure they’re sharp, fix red-eye in-camera, smooth their skin, snap the shot when your subjects smile, and even let you know if they blinked. Also the COOLPIX L830 has a Portrait Scene Mode which is a scene mode available on select Nikon digital cameras that produces pleasing portraits. These scene modes can be used to shoot portraits and capture the best portrait possible. For more information on shooting a portrait with a COOLPIX camera please see the following Learn and Explore article: http://www.nikonusa.com/en/Learn-An...

Answer: 
Pictures can be transferred by connecting the camera to your Mac using the supplied USB cable. If your Mac has a card reader, you can also transfer pictures by placing your SD Card in the Card Reader. We recommend using Nikon software, like ViewNX-i, to transfer photos. However programs, like iPhoto or Image Capture, can also be used.

Details on how to transfer the pictures can be found on page 77 of the Reference Manual. http://downloadcenter.nikonimglib.c....

ViewNX-i can be downloaded for free from here:

Answer: 
The compact COOLPIX L820 sports a high-power 30x zoom, a 16-megapixel CMOS sensor, and Vibration Reduction (VR) technology to help keep shots steady. With its super wide-angle lens, covering from wide-angle 22.5mm to super-telephoto 675mm, users have the versatility to capture crisp, vivid images, whether up-close or at a distance. the COOLPIX L830 sports a 16-megapixel backside illuminated (BSI) CMOS sensor to deliver stunning images and Full HD (1080p) videos, even in low light. The fear of camera shake and the blurry photos that result from it, especially when shooting at super telephoto distances, are minimized thanks to the L830’s Lens-shift Vibration Reduction (VR) system and new Hybrid VR system when shooting videos. The COOLPIX L830 can zoom up to 34x with optical zoom and 68x with Dynamic Fine Zoom, an enhanced digital zoom function that effectively doubles your reach.

If the camera detects more than one face, a double border is displayed around the face that the camera focuses on, and single borders are displayed around the other faces. When shooting video, face priority will be the default setting and will be the focus mode.

Answer: 
The COOLPIX L830 can take up to 5 shots at approx. 6.7 frames per second when shooting. With a superb NIKKOR super telephoto glass lens that delivers 34x optical zoom plus an astounding 68x Dynamic Fine Zoom, you'll be amazed by how far you can reach. Hybrid Vibration Reduction helps ensure a little camera shake won't blur images. Just turn the camera on, point, shoot and marvel at the results. The COOLPIX has several scene mode to select for shooting scenarios. For optimal images when shooting animals with your COOLPIX L830 use Pet Portrait. Pet portrait lets you capture the expressions of your pet cat or dog automatically. When the Pet scene mode is chosen, the camera automatically releases the shutter at the moment the pet's face is detected. Because the subject is tracked and the picture taken when it looks directly toward the camera, you won't miss the right moment to shoot. For shooting smaller children, A scene mode available on select Nikon digital cameras. The Child scene mode is used for photographing snapshots of children; skin tones will appear natural and soft while clothing and backgrounds will be vivid.

Answer: 
Shutter speed cannot be manually changed with the COOLPIX L830 however when in the shooting menu, the ISO can be changed to three options. For directions on changing the ISO please see the page 34 in the reference section of the User's Manual: https://support.nikonusa.com/app/an....

Please explain how to get multiple pictures quickly. In one QA, it was stated to go into Pet mode for pets that seems to be specific to focus on the pet. Another answer said to go to continuous in the menu but we cannot find anything like that in the menu. Also, the URL for the manual is broken, could you fix that so we can download it? Thanks

Answer: 
There are several ways to shoot continuously using the COOLPIX L830. The Sports Scene mode will shoot up to about 5 images continuously at a rate of about 6.7 fps while the shutter-release button is held all the way down. The Pet Portrait scene mode can shoot either a single shot or up to three images continuously. To shoot continuously you must choose the Continuous option that is available when choosing the Pet Portrait mode. To choose a scene mode click on the Shooting Mode button (indicated by a green camera) and choose the second option which (defaults to a Portrait icon), then arrow to the right to display the available scene modes. The name of the modes display at the top of the screen as you scroll through them. You can find instructions on choosing a scene mode on page 32 of the L830 Reference Manual.

For more Continuous Shooting options, switch to Auto Mode by clicking on the Shooting Mode button and then navigate down to Auto Mode option (camera icon) and select OK. Hit the Menu button, navigate to the Shooting Menu, then arrow to the right and scroll down until you see the option for Continuous. Arrow to the right again to display the Continuous options, scroll up/down to make your selection, and hit OK to save. In Auto Mode you can choose from several different Continuous Shooting speeds/options. Information about Auto Mode can be found on page 41 of the L830 Reference Manual, and a breakdown of the various Continuous Options starts on page 32 of the Reference Section of the L830 Reference Manual.

A copy of the L830 Reference Manual can be downloaded from the following address. If you are not able to click to download the manual, please try right-clicking and choosing the "Save Target As" option:

Answer: 
When shooting in easy auto mode, the camera will automatically select the optimum scene mode when you frame an image. Shooting in Auto Mode certain settings can be adjusted to suit the shooting conditions. You can change how the camera selects the area of the frame to focus.

A friend of mine had a camera that had a mode that when you pressed the capture button, it recorded a short 5 or 6 second video. Definitely interested in this feature.

Answer: 
The COOLPIX L830 does have the ability to shoot a video and shoot still photos however it does not have the ability to combine the two as one file. This would not be referring to the setting called, "Motion Snapshot" which can be found in the Nikon 1 cameras. The Motion Snapshot mode allows you to capture a second of movie footage and a still image each time the shutter is pressed. The Motion Snapshot is played back on the camera's LCD, with the video shown in slow motion over the course of 2.5 seconds, ending with the still image. Music themes can be chosen before or after Motion Snapshot capture. For more information on Nikon 1 cameras please see this link: http://www.nikonusa.com/en/Nikon-Pr...

Answer: 
The FC-E9 was discontinued in 2006 so it is unlikely that it will work or even fit on any body that is produced today due to the limited amount of cameras it was designed to work with.

Is it the Sports Scene mode, or the Continuous shooting option in Auto Mode? What's the difference? What are the different Continuous shooting speeds/options. I could not find this on page 32 of the Reference Section of the L830 Refernce Manual.

Answer: 
It could be a lot of things, light situation will have a lot to do with it, check the exif data of your previous shots and see what that says, adjust your camera to get roughly the same settings.
