By P. York on August 2, 2014
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).

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.

No camera takes better photos with less work than the Nikon Coolpix L830. Just set it on "Easy Mode"...frame the subject, zoom in, lock in the focus, press the shutter button, and then the camera does all the work.

The L830 is just big enough to provide a secure grip. The rear LCD screen is sharper than on many cameras selling for twice its price. The LCD screen is adjustable, so you can hold the camera at waist level when taking photos of your cat, or have the screen face down if you hold the camera above your head to take photos at a rock concert. After you learn to pre-focus and hold the camera steady, 90% of your photos will look great. A "vivid" color mode gives your photos better color on cloudy or hazy days.

You can use AA rechargeables (such as the Panasonic Eneloop Pre-Charged batteries) or AA lithium batteries (Energizer Ultimate Lithium provide 2,000 photos), which you can easily find replacement batteries anywhere in the world.

The 23mm wide angle view is great for tourists as it lets you get a much wider view than the 35mm lenses many cameras use. Indoors, the 23mm lense and a powerful flash let you you fit the whole family into a photo. At the zoo, you can zoom to 750mm to get details of a lion's whiskers from fifty yards away.

A DSLR owner would pay at least $1,000 to get lenses that cover the entire 23mm to 750mm range, and a DSLR with those lenses would weigh five times as much as the Nikon L830.

The hybrid VR system lets you get sharp photos with zoom at very slow shutter speeds. I took a photo of my cat from 50 feet away. You can read my phone number on her tag which is the size of a quarter.

A rear push button menu lets you make photos brighter or darker by a tap of a button.

Takes beautiful pictures! I am completely an amateur photographer, but with this camera you would never know it. I took close ups of flower blooms that look like they should be used in an ad to sell this camera. The colors are amazing. I also took an outdoor video at home in bright sun that was clear and crisp with no unwanted noise such as wind. I bought the camera for my son's military graduation. Again all the pictures were amazing from bright August sun in the middle of the afternoon to low light shots as we said goodbye at night. The only problem I have had was making a video during the military graduation. The camera just could not focus. I was initially very upset and wished I had purchased an actual camcorder. I was told by several people who know more than I, that the problem was the lighting in the theater. It was semi-dark with bright lights on stage which apparently makes for a difficult focusing situation. That is the only video I have made where there was any sort of issue. I am still learning the many things the camera is capable of. The short version owner's manual that comes with the camera is enough to get a person started taking great photos and video, but to play with all the features, it is necessary to down load the full manual. The point that sold me on purchasing this camera was another review where I read about the handiness of the tilt screen. I really didn't think it was a feature that I wanted or needed, but knowing I would be using it in crowds for the graduation, I thought well maybe.... As it turns out, the tilt screen is fabulous. I am only 5 feet 3 inches tall. When trying to capture photos and video of my son among 200 other soldiers and all their families, it was indispensable.Read more ›
