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 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.

Answer: 
The COOLPIX L830 does have face detection. When shooting in the following scene modes on the COOLPIX L830, the camera will use face detection:

> Easy Auto Mode
> Portrait Mode
> Night Portrait

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: 
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...

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.

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.

Answer: 
The COOLPIX L830 is an excellent camera for concerts. The COOLPIX L830 can shoot continuously at full resolution up to 5 shots at approx. 6.7 frames per second. There are several scene modes that work perfectly in low lighting situations such as concerts.

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.

Answer: 
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...

Try putting brand new, or freshly charged rechargeable, batteries in your L830 and if you continue to have trouble contact Nikon Support: https://support.nikonusa.com/app/co... .

Answer: 
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.

A more accurate count could be done using the Movie Editor that is built into Nikon View NX2 software. You can download the most recent version of View NX2 for free from this address: https://support.nikonusa.com/app/an...

One of the Sony models allows you to video and take a picture at the same time and their is no interposition in the video. There is a Canon model that if you are taking a video and and then take a picture you lose the video in that spot.

Answer: 
If the shutter-release button is pressed all the way while a recording is being made with the COOLPIX L830, one still image frame will be saved to the camera while the camera continues to record. For more information on how to take a still frame while recording please see page 68 of the COOLPIX L830's reference manual: https://support.nikonusa.com/app/an...

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.
