I haven't used it much yet, but I can say that for $200, it is hard to not recommend it. Having worked as a professional photographer for several years, and having owned both pocket-sized and SLR-like digitals, I would say that the following are the important points to consider when making a camera purchase:

1. Price (duh). If you don't want to spend $800 or more for a real camera (or at least something close to one), the next option is an SLR-like model (again - this one was only $200 - a big plus).

2. SLR-Like vs. Pocket-Sized. To be honest, considering the capabilities of most phones nowadays, I don't undestand why they even still make pocket-sized cameras. (Although there are some that are sort of a cross between a pocket-sized & SLR-like that have a lot of zoom and give you a bit of something to hold onto). (And personally, I consider having something to hold onto to be a big plus).

3. Zoom. With 34x optical zoom, its a no-brainer. That's more zoom than you could get out of a 400mm lens with a doubler! (Try lugging one of those around). It also has image stabilization (a necessity for a long zoom shot).

4. Pixels/Picture Quality. As some of you know, more pixels does not necessarily equate to a better picture. I have an old 5 meg Olympus which has a 7 meg interpolated mode which still takes as good or better pics than anything I have seen since. (But it is as slow as Christmas). As far as I know, the quality & clarity is the pics from this camera are comparable to other 16 meg cameras on the market, but I would still keep it in the highest quality (least compressed/interpolated) mode.

5. Auto Focus Speed. This is a BIG PLUS with this camera and a crucial factor which none of the mfgs. include in their specs.

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.

I purchased this camera one month ago and find it takes very good quality photos and videos, even hand held long zoom shots. I posted a few close up cropped bird photos from a recent vacation to British Columbia in the product gallery (Flicker, Owl and Eagle). The shots were hand-held or stabilized on a railing or bed of gravel (no tripod).

The hard part is initially focusing on the bird with just the LCD screen and no view finder. Even with the moveable LCD panel I find it helps to spot movement by the subject and then I am able to further zoom in (under normal daylight conditions).

I really appreciate the wide angle lens. This is very helpful for taking photos to capture an entire room in your house for example.

I have also taken a few videos and the quality seems outstanding to me.

This camera does not have built-in GPS. I had a prior camera with built in GPS and do not miss that feature (battery drainer).

It starts up very fast and so far I do not mind that you have to pop up/open the flash manually. Most photos do not need a flash and its easy enough most times to get two photos in to see if its better with the flash or not. Its just a bit of a learning curve for those of us that come from digital cameras that decide for themselves if they need the flash (automatic).

The camera uses AA batteries. I rotate between two sets of Duracell HR6 rechargeable AA's and keep a set of Alkaline's in the bag for backup.

I store the camera in a Case Logic case (DCB-304) and purchased a sling strap that screws onto the tripod mount (Case Logic DCS-101). I find half the time I don't use the strap at all because the camera has such a great grip. The primary memory card I am using is a SanDisk 32GB (Class 10, 45 MB/s).

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.
