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
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

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: 
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: 
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...

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.

Answer: 
The first think you should check is that your hand is not covering mic, review page 24 of your manual. Then, in the event that wind noise is causing interference with your audio, you can set your Wind Noise Reduction to On - see page 56 of your manual. Other than that - there are no manual adjustments while recording video. You can - after your video has been recording - in playback - use the zoom switch to increase the sound in playback.

There is no cord or charger for the COOLPIX L830 since it accepts AA batteries. Please make sure that the batteries that you are using match the specifications listed under "Applicable Batteries" on page 13 of the COOLPIX L830 reference manual. Also see page 72 of the Reference section of the L830 Reference Manual for information on setting your camera to the correct battery type. A copy of the L830 Reference Manual can be downloaded from this address: https://support.nikonusa.com/app/an...

When you first start playing back a movie on the COOLPIX L830, a countdown of the length of the movie is momentarily displayed in the upper right corner of the monitor. If you tap any of the buttons on the multi-selector during playback the display will reappear showing the time remaining.

Answer: 
With the COOLPIX L830, pictures and video cannot be transferred to social media or email straight from the camera. This is not possible because the COOLPIX L830 does not have built-in Wi-Fi capability. Many COOLPIX compact digital cameras have Wi-Fi built-in. Now, using any of these cameras, you can seamlessly transfer images from your Wi-Fi camera to your compatible smartphone or tablet for easy sharing via email, text or uploading to an image sharing site. If the Wi-Fi feature is something that is something that you'd be interested in, look no further than the Wi-Fi® and GPS enabled COOLPIX S9700. With the COOLPIX S9700, you can take photos and instantly share them by text message, email or uploading to your favorite social networking sites.

With the cameras I have had in the past I have always had a no cost option to be able to upload my pictures so I don't understand why this appears to not be available.

Answer: 
The flash must be raised in order to operate the flash. After the flash is raised, flash mode settings can be changed. If the camera is set to auto, the camera will automatically decide if the camera needs flash according to the shooting conditions. In selected scene modes, the camera will optimize the flash as needed however not all scene modes will allow the use of flash. Please see page 55 of the User's Manual to see which scene modes allow flash and the flash modes available.: https://support.nikonusa.com/app/an...

Answer: 
Images can be transferred to your computer using the USB cord or using a card reader. To transfer images using a USB, connect the camera to the computer and turn the camera on. Most new computers contain everything you need to just plug in your camera and offload your images without the need to install additional software. Just plug in your camera, and open My Computer (Windows) "see" your camera. For the best experience with your Nikon digital camera, Nikon offers a free image browser and viewer application called View NX 2 that is available for download here.:

https://support.nikonusa.com/app/an...

View NX 2 also contains the image transfer application Nikon Transfer 2, which is ideal to use for Nikon cameras or with memory card readers.If using a card reader, connect the card reader into the computer and then insert the SD card. If the computer you are operating on has a built in card reader, simply insert the SD card.

For further assistance transfering images, please see the following View NX 2 digitutor: http://www.nikonusa.com/en_INC/o/Mf...

The sound settings of the COOLPIX L830 are managed in the Setup Menu. The Setup Menu can be found by pressing the Menu button on the back of camera and navigating to the wrench icon. Scroll through the settings until you see the options for Button Sound and Shutter Sound. For more information on updating these settings please see page 65 of the Reference section of the COOLPIX L830 Reference Manual.

Answer: 
Bokeh is created when your photograph has a very shallow depth of field and is primarily controlled by the aperture setting. The COOLPIX L830 does not give you the ability to control aperture directly, so it can be challenging to control depth of field with this camera. Lowering your ISO (available when shooting in Auto) may force your camera to open the aperture wide enough to increase bokeh. Your lens focal length and your distance to your subject can also affect depth of field, so try experimenting with zooming your camera to its longest focal length (without using digital zoom) and getting closer to your subject.

You may want to consider a COOLPIX that offers manual exposure control since these cameras will let you control your aperture setting. To find COOLPIX cameras with this option go to the following page and narrow the results by choosing the "Manual Exposure Control" feature.

You can find an informative article about bokeh at the following page on Nikonusa.com: http://www.nikonusa.com/en/Learn-An...

Answer: 
Select Nikon COOLPIX digital cameras have a 3D Scene Mode, which takes one picture for each eye, simulating a 3D image on a 3D-compatible TV or monitor. With the COOLPIX L820 supports 3D and can be activated by selecting the 3D scene mode. After taking the first picture by pressing the shutter-release button, move the camera horizontally to the right so that the subject is aligned with the guide on the monitor.The camera automatically captures the second image when it detects that the subject is aligned with the guide.

These cameras are able to create a 3D image by the user taking one image, then moving the camera horizontally, and taking a second image. The cameras were designed to assist the shooter in capturing the two images. After the first image is taken, a translucent overlay is shown on the display monitor that guides the user to line up the subject being photographed correctly.

Also, the camera’s focus and exposure are locked after the first frame is taken so that both frames will be recorded with the same exposure and focus point. Once the subject is aligned with the guide, the camera automatically snaps the second photo.

Because the camera’s display is not 3D, only the first image of the series will display in playback.

For the 3D effect, images must be viewed on a 3D-compatible HDTV or monitor, with the camera connected to the HDTV/monitor via an HDMI cable, and the camera’s playback must be set to 3D playback. 3D glasses will also be needed (as necessary with the aforementioned 3D-compatible TV or monitor) to view the 3D photographs.

Not all subjects are ideal for capturing in 3D though. For example, moving subjects—by their inherent nature—are not good 3D subjects, since you have to take two images and the subject will likely have moved a great deal between the two exposures. There will, however, be a more pronounced 3D feel to images where there is a greater distance between the subject and background. For more information on 3D please see page 45 of the User's Manual: https://support.nikonusa.com/app/an...

Answer: 
Individual movie files cannot exceed 4 GB in size or 29 minutes in length, even when there is sufficient free space on the memory card for longer recording. Recording may end before either limit is reached if camera temperature becomes elevated. The actual movie length may vary depending on the movie content, subject movement, or type of memory card.

Answer: 
The COOLPIX L830 is 4.0–136 mm (angle of view equivalent to that of 22.5–765 mm lens in 35mm [135] format). The focal length cannot be seen on the camera's LCD monitor as the lens extends. Focal length will be shown once the images are uploaded and can be found in the metadata of the image.
