Summary: Although the combination of the low price tag and impressive zoom and focal range is pleasing on paper, in use the COOLPIX L810 displays several signs of money being saved. The model appears to lack the processing power of other bridge cameras, with image capture blighted by shooting delays. After capturing a single image, there is a noticeable delay before the camera is ready to start shooting again.
Pros: Low price tag; large focal range and lens-shift VR system; high resolution LCD screen
Cons: Certain elements feel a touch low end; AA batteries not to everyone's taste; slow operational speeds
Summary: The Nikon Coolpix L810 is a 16 Megapixel super-zoom with a 26x optical range and a 3 inch 921k pixel LCD screen. Its compact size and long zoom range combined with point-and-shoot features set it apart from the competition which mostly offers more advanced exposure control.
The COOLPIX L810 has Vibration reduction in addition to Motion detection which automatically increases the ISO sensitivity to avoid subject blur and camera shake.
Excerpt: As far as I can recall, this is Nikon’s longest range maxi-zoom compact. Previously there was the L20, with a 21x zoom — but nothing at this 26x level. There is a demand for such cameras. And, as I’ve said before, if you want long zooms, the last thing you want is to lug a heavy DSLR with a pricey and heavy lens … if you could find a DSLR zoom with a 20x plus range!
Summary: Nikon's stylish entry-level superzoom with a 26x zoom and 16MP
Pros: Easy to use, Broad focal range, Two zoom levers, One touch video recording, The Nikon Coolpix L810 is a good value, budget priced superzoom from a respected brand. The wide range of framing options afforded by the broader than average focal range make this a decent 'all in one' option, while the optical zoom is accessible for 720p video as well as for framing up 16MP JPEG stills.
Cons: No viewfinder, Fixed LCD screen, Runs on AA batteries, Not Full HD video, The flexibility of that big zoom aside, you really are limited here to pointing and shooting. Video isn't Full HD, and the zoom is more sluggish than normal in this mode. Glossy finish to the body accentuates the plastic feel rather than disguises it. Supplied batteries are your bog standard non-rechargeable AAs. Basic then, but this is reflected in the beginner-friendly price.
Excerpt: Photography is such a welcoming past time. Frankly, anyone can do it but not everyone wants to get bogged down with jargon and numbers. If everyone wanted to get involved with reciprocity failure or the circle of confusion, there would be no need for the L series of cameras from Nikon. L stands for Life and it's the company's range of easy to use point and shoot models for the happy crowd. The L810 is the daddy of the bunch being the biggest.
Conclusion: The Nikon Coolpix L810 digital camera is a successor to the popular Nikon Coolpix L120 introduced in 2011. Nikon designed the Coolpix L810 to appeal to those who are looking for an affordable and compact camera that offers point-and-shoot simplicity with long range zoom capabilities.
Conclusion: The Nikon Coolpix L810 offers something different as it gives you the power of an extra long lens, but with the simplicity of a point and shoot digital camera. This helps to make it somewhat cheaper than the more fully featured models with similar zoom power. Picture quality does not match up to the more expensive models in this category, but it is only if you are planning to make extra large prints that you are likely to see much difference between photos taken with...
Excerpt: Some people buy digital cameras based purely on brand, specs and price, and Nikon has them in its sights with the L810. The Nikon brand carries some gravitas, and with a 26x zoom, 16-megapixel sensor, 3in 921,000-dot screen, HDMI out, a choice of four colours and a price just shy of £200 including VAT, it's bound to stand out on the shop shelves. The 26x zoom is a little way off the similarly priced Olympus SP-810UZ with its 36x zoom.
Conclusion: Zum günstigen Preis bietet Nikon mit der Coolpix L810 eine gut ausgestattete Bridge-Kamera. Die Anfangsbrennweite von 23 Millimeter ist selten, gleiches gilt für die Stromversorgung mit herkömmlichen Batterien. Die Ausstattung zielt auf komfortorientierte Automatik-Fotografen. Fotos der 16-Megapixel-Kamera zeigen zu viel Bildrauschen und eine etwas zu starke Unschärfe am Bildrand. Davon abgesehen wirken die Bilder stimmig.
