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 !!!

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!

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.

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

Great big camera for a smaller price
Just bought the Coolpix L820 in red (love the color). Fairly light weight. Handle grip feels good. Lens cover & shoulder/neck strap were included in my package (love that). The counter goes continuously, even if I've deleted shots before they're down loaded. Will make it very hard to figure out how many shots I truely get to a memory card. Doesn't have the review scrolling wheel like my Canon does (makes it really easy to look back at your shots, or pull them up to show someone). Can't find certain tools yet that I liked on the Canon. Have to get use to pushing a button to use flash, rather than flip up the flash. Was extremely easy to get started using. Beautiful, sharp pictures. Just used the video today. Haven't seen it yet, but was great you could zoom in/out while filming.
Overall, I think it will be a great camera. Would definately recommend it to you, as a great camera for a decent price.

nice features&easy to use
I am enjoying taking pictures with my Coolpix L820 camera. Have taken pictures of my children playing soccer & at track meets. Can zoom in to capture all features at sporting events.

Excellent Camera for Beginning Photographer
My husband is a serious photographer, I never was, so I always had a simple point and shoot digital. This camera is great and does everything I want it to do! The clarity of the pictures is wonderful, beyond what I was even hoping for. The 30X zoom is great for the distance shots. My old camera was pretty much useless. The close up shots--WOW!!
I know people are going to say this is still a "point and shoot" camera, which it is. But it is offers a fantastic value for those photographers like me who want to move from viritually knowing nothing when it comes to photographing but just aren't ready yet to jump up to the more expensive cameras. This L820 is one of the best leisure time purchases I have ever made. Would highly recommend getting it. Get value for the money. I love mine. Only regret, I saw it in blue on the internet. I would have loved to get it in blue. But, I am very pleased with my camera in red. Hope if you purchase it, you enjoy it as much as I do mine.

This was a birthday gift from my wife, and she let me pick out the camera. After looking at both point and shoot and DSLR. I wanted a camera that will expand my photos but not break the bank. I became very confused by the DSLR terms and with a little research I found out that if i went with a DSLR camera i would need at least 3 lenses to give the same range of photos that this camera offers. so enough about the pre buying time. The camera was the red Coolpix L820. right out of the box I i was impressed by taking a Photo at 65 MPH down the road and the picture was Crystal clear. I have now taken over 500 pictures and maybe about 10% i have had to delete because of being blurry. I have taken pictures of my daughter who is now 6 months old and as you can imagine she can move fast and cause the pictures to be blurry but after playing around i have learned how the camera and my daughter acts so the number of blurry pictures have decreased. I have also taken pictures of both plants and wild life with great results. I would really recommend this camera to anyone interested in upper level camera at a decent price.

I went to the store intending to buy a DSLR, I bought this camera instead. Don't getr me wrong, I don't think the picture quality is the same or better bit for my skill level and what I intend to do this is perfect. When researching, I realized that I was probably not going to buy a bunch of lenses and I didn't want to spend $600 on a camera that I use for the 3-4 trips I take each year. The L820 has a fantastic zoom, more megapixels than you need, is very easy to use and uses AA batteries which I prefer(one less charger).
If you are looking for an all-purpose camera that will do what you need without muss or fuss this camera is for you. It takes great low-light photos and HD video. All in a nice-looking functional and reasonably priced package. The only thing missing for me is Wi-Fi. It seems to be able to use the Eye-Fi card but I haven't tested it. I'm hoping the WU-1a is compatible.

Camera excelente, o zoom dela é maravilhoso, não só pelo alcance, mas pela qualidade que consegue manter mesmo com o zoom no máximo. Muitas funções, que auxiliam e muito a tirar ótimas fotos, mesmo com pouco conhecimento de fotografia. ( Ou até nada de conhecimento). Gostei muito do produto!

camara nikon l820

Antes de comprar mi Nikon L820, estuve evaluando otras cámaras de marcas diferentes y al final lo que me convenció para comprar mi Nikon fue su gran calidad de imagen, el video en HD 1080 , el zoom 30x y por su puesto la larga y exitosa trayectoria de la marca. La verdad no me arrepiento de mi elección porque creo que fue la mejor. Me siento muy satisfecho con los resultados ya que para la categoría de cámara que es, ha superado mis expectativas y necesidades con la toma de fotografías panorámicas, el 3D y la gran calidad y nitidez para retratar la luna. Lo que más me gusta de mi nikon, además de lo ya mencionado, es el material del que esta hecha y el color rojo que refleja mi estilo y mi personalidad.
