The red Nikon COOLPIX L830 Digital Camera from Nikon features a 16 MP CMOS sensor, and a 4-136mm (22.5-765mm 35mm equivalent) f/3-5.9 Nikkor Lens for capturing high-quality still photos and Full HD 1080p videos. The 34x optical zoom Nikkor lens has both super-telephoto and wide-angle capabilities. You can zoom in to shoot far-away objects and close-ups, or zoom out to shoot the whole scene. Vibration Reduction helps to maintain image sharpness when working in low-light conditions or at the longer end of the zoom range. The camera's ergonomic design features a large grip for improved comfort and control.

The 3" 921k-dot LCD display can be tilted so you can take photos and videos from unique angles while still being able to compose your shot. Shooting high quality images with the COOLPIX L830 is made easy by offering 19 scene modes, as well as an Easy Auto Mode. This allows you to focus on composing your photograph, rather than worrying about the settings. A built-in flash assists in low light or backlit situations. The camera is powered by 4 readily available AA batteries.

16 MP Sensor
The 16 MP 1/2.3" CMOS sensor is capable of recording high resolution imagery that is suitable for both online sharing as well as printing. Additionally, the sensor lends itself to producing HD 1080 video at 60i. Movie recording is accessible via a dedicated movie button.
Nikkor 34x Optical Zoom Lens and Hybrid Vibration Reduction
The 34x optical zoom provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 22.5-765mm, making this camera suitable for capturing almost any type of scene with ease. This lens benefits from the inclusion of Hybrid Vibration Reduction for stills and videos, which works to reduce the appearance of camera shake and blur that can become increasingly notable when shooting in low-light conditions or at the telephoto end of the zoom range. A 5-axis vibration reduction function is employed when shooting videos, that combines lens-shift vibration with electronic vibration to suppress blur caused by camera shake.
Scene Modes and Easy Auto Mode
The COOLPIX L830 is specifically designed to allow you to shoot with ease, and concentrate on taking the photo or video, rather than on changing your camera settings. Easy Auto Mode will automatically control all camera settings for true point-and-shoot functionality. For a more specialized approach, you can choose from one of 19 different Scene Modes, including Beach, Snow, Night Portrait, and Sunset, among others, to optimize certain camera settings that best suit the type of scene you are photographing.
In-Camera Image Editing
There are 9 different built-in editing tools to give you extra creative control right from your camera:
  • D-Lighting restores shadow and highlight detail
  • Quick Retouch adds a balance of contrast and saturation to your image
  • Small Picture saves a small resized photo
  • Filter Effects add creative effects to your images

    This camera is amazing! I use the camera everyday! I take pictures mostly of flowers, and animals up-close! The more I play around with it, the more features I find! My favorite effect on is the coloring one. I can't find one bad thing on the device! I can tell you this camera is a BIG upgrade from my last one! The zoom works great! And it takes the most beautiful pictures I've ever seen! :)

    For causal pictures taking, it is good. It has many build in function to assist taking good pictures in many situation. But the AE, SE and other functions are hidden deep within its menu - troublesome to click and click in there. The UI (user interface should be improve).

            I purchased this for my oldest daughter for Christmas and she loved it. I already have the older version of this camera and she kept asking for it. I wanted to keep it around for a spare, so I had to get one for her. She is 12 and I wanted her to get into photography, so I don't now much about this particular camera but the one I have has been great. I like it because of it's size and ease of use. I have bigger camera's with interchangeable lenses but for something to keep in my truck this camera does the job

            It Works for My Wife; That's What Counts

                  My wife is a public school early childhood educator who, for her whole career, has recorded her children's progress in photos. She needs the camera in a flash second to capture the moment. When her old one broke in an accident, her heart broke with it. She insisted on a new one that could still use disposable batteries to ensure it was always snapshot ready. She loves her new NIKON for not abandoning this feature, for the nifty angled viewer and also the increase in zoom for auditorium assembly presentations. The great "package deal" gives her the security she was missing after the accident. Thrilled is a mild word to describe her reaction to this holiday gift. She is back in full glory thanks to B&H, and that's what counts!

                  I was doing research for a friend to find a point and shoot camera. I found the L830 and liked it so much, I bought one for myself. I love the fact that the monitor on the back can be moved around and repositioned to achieve a great shot. Not to mention, HD video recording, with stereo sound. I used it on Christmas day to video my grandkids opening their presents. I really haven't found anything I don't like about it yet, however, I am having lunch with my friend whom I found the camera for, to teach him how to use it.

                        Light weight, stylish, full function camera that doesn't break the bank. If you're looking to replace one of those small point and shoot cameras like I was, but not looking to spend 4to $500, this is the one for you. Great zoom, HD video, tilting video screen and more.... Love it

                            The camera and the camera case are gifts for my daughter for Christmas.
                            I did research the camera, and i tried them out before I give them to her.
                            The camera works great, and takes wonderful pictures, easy to use, has a lot
                            of great features like zoom lens, 16 mp,and many more options usually not found on a camera this inexpensive. I liked the camera vey much, and I am
                            sure my daughter will as well,
