    First, let me say that I am not terribly techy. I can barely turn on the TV anymore. So please, read the specs on this because I can't explain what they mean anyway. This review is based solely on my experience with the camera.

    We took this great little camera on a trip to Mexico not long ago and it was awesome. So easy to use that even I managed to get some spectacular photos. My eyes are over 40 years old (the rest of me feels 29) so I have some trouble seeing up close. Therefore, the pictures I took with this camera were kind of just point, shoot and pray. Well the prayers were answered because when we looked at the pictures later on a screen I could actually see, they turned out super crisp. In fact there was a topless sunbather in one that I hadn't seen and my son was delighted that I got such a sharp, focused shot! Ha.

    The HD video is also super cool. My son is using it to launch his youtube career -- he really needs to focus on college. -- lousy content aside, the videos turn out great. I haven't used it for video, but he does and loves it.

    This camera is really sturdy and well made. It bounced around in my bag, got knocked off the table a time or two, and overall wasn't treated as well as it should have been. It didn't miss a beat or even get a scratch.

    The zoom is amazing. The display is great (or so I am told since I can't really see it). This is an all around great addition to the amateur photographer or as a basic family camera. Highly recommend!

    Nikon L830 DOES NOT HAVE ANY ZOOM NOISE WHILE FILMING A VIDEO. It's easy to use in auto mode or has plenty of settings for the novis/hobbist that doesn't want to invest a couple of grand in lense's and bodies. My fujifilm S8200 had terrible zoom noise. That's why I took it back!

    This camera has far superior clarity in still pictures compared to the Fujifilm S8200 and when filming in HD, this camera has no interlacing issues when moving the camera like the Fujifilm S8200. I like the ability of just buying AA batteries and not being tied down to a lithium battery pack. I like the RED body although it shows fingerprints more than a black camera....no biggies! I've never used a View FInder so I don't miss that. I am on the fence about the settings buttons and not having a rotating selector switch. I do like having the saturation button at my fintertips though so maybe i'm really not on the fence.

    I do have only 1 issue. On my old Fujifilm S700, the flash auto popped up when needed. The L830 has to be manually released to function, but knowing that.....I just release it most of the time.

    MSRP was $299, Sale was $269 and Got it from Walmart for $229, I think she quoted me the wrong price over the phone and had to get a manager override to give me the quoted $229.

    I'm using a 32Gig Class 10 SanDisk HC Ultra Memory card from Best Buy for $24 and it will allow me to take over 3000 photos. I think I should have went with a 8Gig SanDisk Ultra PLUS that had a faster transfer rate. I think I'd do more research on the SDHC Cards before I buy one.

    Color Name: Red Verified Purchase
    I loved the size, and feel of this Nikon. The zoom was great, the pictures sharp and the price, very good. And, I liked the Nikon's tilted screen. However, this was my first camera without a viewfinder, and after two weeks, I returned it and ordered the Panasonic Lumix FZ60 - a more expensive camera; but, with viewfinder. I really prefer having the option of having both. The majority of my pictures are nature - birds, flowers, scenery. I had issues with seeing the screen in bright light and it's easier for me the zero in on the subject faster with the viewfinder. It is also easier for me to hold my camera steady when using the viewfinder. The panasonic does not have as long a zoom, but it serves my purpose and cropping the final picture brings my subjects in beautifully. The Panasonic pictures are awesome, it's easy to use and has some great editing features. Bottom line, manufactures are missing the boat by not having more options with optic viewfinders in their comoact models.

    Color Name: Black Verified Purchase
    I've taken this camera on two trips- one to Arizona, and one to France. I was absolutely bowled over by the quality of the photographs. They are crisp and clear, and the color is beautiful. The zoom is fabulous, and most of the time, I didn't have problems with blurry zoomed photos. Even in low light, I never had to use a flash. In Arizona, I took lots of photos at an outdoor Chihuly exhibit in the Arizona Botanical Garden, both in the afternoon and early evening light. It was fun experimenting with the different scene modes at dusk. Also took lots of night shots in France, and they were also great. Some have complained of battery life, but I found them to last a really long time. I never changed batteries for the whole week in Arizona, and then added another couple of days of battery life in France, and those were with the batteries that came with the camera. I had purchased rechargeables, and they lasted the rest of the two weeks in France, with power to spare.
    My reservations- Hate not having a viewfinder. If the photos weren't so great, I would have seriously thought about returning it. Seriously Nikon? Put a viewfinder in this camera and it would get 10 stars.
    Also, the door for the batteries and SD card feels a little flimsy. Opening it is not too difficult, but the closing mechanism is a little awkward.
