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
  • Glamour Retouch

    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! :)

    Camera worked for about a week - now the camera will not read any SD cards - dials / buttons do not work except for power button and zoom. Nikon support could not assist. Tried all known fixes to no avail. Tried an online support site and all recommendations already tried but still does not work.

      I purchased this camera for a friend as a wedding gift and they loved it. The camera along with the free bag and SD card was a gift that they were able to use to capture all those special moments from their honeymoon. The camera was also great for capturing video as well.

            I am impressed with this point and shoot camera. I have a Nikon D5200 and D300 but wanted a camera for everyday to keep in the car, use on daily walks and not worry about carrying lots of equipment. I shoot more and the limtations of this camera make me moe awre of what I am shooting.

                We bought this as a birthday present for our 11 year old daughter as she has a love of photography like I do, and she had been using a very old point and shoot that I had years ago. She has found it incredibly easy to use, even right out of the box and she loves all the features! I think she will get years of great photographs from this camera,

                        What kind of camera still uses AA batteries??? The L830 was a Christmas gift from 2014, and just 4 months later, it will not even turn on. The technical support is a joke. I could understand if I left old batteries in, but I used this camera every other day, and changed the batteries IMMEDIATELY. The only other worse camera was the Nikon Coolpix L110, which could not take a clear picture PERIOD. AND, the L110 also had the same AA battery issues. COMPLETELY USELESS. For all the recent positive review posts: BEWARE, the L830 will do this to you, too. Just wait.

                        The title really says the important part. Not on a huge budget? Need a camera that takes really nice shots? This camera is a good choice. When I don't want to carry a bunch of gear but still need good shots, this is the camera I grab from the shelf.

                                Camera worked for about a week - now the camera will not read any SD cards - dials / buttons do not work except for power button and zoom. Nikon support could not assist. Tried all known fixes to no avail. Tried an online support site and all recommendations already tried but still does not work.

                                I bought the camera for my wife. She is learning now how to use a digital camera and the fundamentals of photography. Camera is soon easy to use and offer great flexibility in other modes. You can beat the price and quality of this device.

                                  Purchased this for my husband who had trouble learning the functions of a DSLR. After reading the reviews and seeing some of the pics that other customers had submitted, I knew he would love this camera and get the quality pictures he was looking for. I've even considered getting myself one for the occasions that I don't want to carry my DSLR.

                                  I owned the L110, which is discontinued previous version of this model. The only perceivable difference is a back screen that can pivot vertically. Still, a very nice camera for the price.
