Nikon Coolpix L820

16 May 2014
  • Conclusion: A reviewers' favorite cheap ultra-zoom camera, the Nikon Coolpix L820 was built with travelers in mind. Its 30x zoom lens captures close-ups of all the sights. It uses AA batteries, so you'll never run out of power. And it's cheap, so you won't be too heartbroken if it gets lost, stolen or damaged. One downside: It's bulky and heavy.
  • Pros: 30x zoom lens, Very good photo and video quality, Easy to use, Quick performance, Runs on AA batteries -- convenient for traveling
  • Cons: Heavy and bulky, even for an ultra-zoom

Nikon Coolpix L820

14 April 2014
  • Conclusion: The Nikon Coolpix L820 fell into our super zoom category, boasting a huge zoom range of 24-1200mm. The L820 is also one of the few cameras on the market to run on AA batteries, which might be a benefit, depending on the user. The L820 is reasonably limited in its ability compared to not only the other super zooms, but also the entire rest of the field.

  • Summary: The Nikon COOLPIX L820 is a super-zoom with a 30x range and a 16 Megapixel sensor. It has DSLR styling in a smaller form factor than the more expensive models that offer an even longer zoom range like Nikon's own 42x COOLPIX P520 and Canon's 50x PowerShot SX50 HS. The COOLPIX L820 replaces the COOLPIX L810 which remains in the range at a lower price point. The new model has a longer zoom range, extending the telephoto by nearly 100mm from 585 to 675mm.
  • Pros: 30x stabilised optical zoom., 1080p30 HD video., 8fps burst and lots of other continuous modes., 180 and 360 degree panoramas.
  • Cons: No Wifi or GPS., Small selection of effects., No PASM modes. Limited manual control., Lens cap jams the lens extension when switched on.

Nikon Coolpix L820 decent 30x megazoom on the cheap

2 August 2013
  • Summary: For those who value a long zoom lens, AA batteries, and saving a few bucks, the Nikon Coolpix L820 might be your point-and-shoot.
  • Pros: The Nikon Coolpix L820 has better features than you'd expect for its price, including a 30x zoom lens, a high-res 3-inch LCD, and a backside-illuminated CMOS sensor. It's one of the few cameras that is powered by AA batteries.
  • Cons: The L820's autofocus performance is on the slow side when the lens is zoomed in or in low light or indoors. Shooting performance is not quite fast enough for fast-moving kids and pets.

Nikon Coolpix L820 review

TechRadar UK
5 August 2013
  • Summary: Budget AA battery-powered bridge packs a 30x optical punch
  • Pros: Good value, Big zoom option, Sharp results usually, Easy to use, The Nikon L820 is inexpensive, has a broad focal range and a sensor that's not over-burdened with pixels. Its images provide a good level of detail, unless you're shooting at maximum zoom, whereby results can be more hit and miss in terms of blur.
  • Cons: Plastic appearance, No optical viewfinder or EVF, No raw shooting, The plastic high gloss finish can be off-putting, as can the fact that it's powered by bog standard AA batteries. It also lacks a viewfinder, accessory shoe, integrated Wi-Fi connectivity, a touchscreen and a raw shooting option, which are features we miss.

Nikon Coolpix L820

26 May 2013
  • Excerpt: Straight from the large zoom stable of Nikon's L series cameras, the Coolpix L820 is the top of the range model. It's host to an array of forward thinking technology, such as ED glass, stereo sound, FullHD video and a back-illuminated CMOS sensor. However, being in the Lifestyle section of Nikon's range also means that it's incredibly easy to use.

  • Conclusion: In der Praxis fallen nur die wenigen Einstellungsmöglichkeiten negativ auf, sonst liefert die Nikon Coolpix L820 ein gutes Ergebnis ab. Gilt dies auf für die Laborwerte? Die Laborergebnisse: Nikon setzt bei der Coolpix L820 (Datenblatt) zur Bildaufnahme auf einen 1/2,3 Zoll großen CMOS-Sensor mit 15,9 Megapixel (4.608 x 3.456 Pixel) und einem ISO-Bereich von 125 bis 3.200. Diese klassische Sensorgröße sorgt bei der Bildqualität auch für ein klassisches Ergebnis.
  • Pros: Klassenübliche Bildqualität (siehe den dkamera Bildqualitätsvergleich), 30-fach-Zoomobjektiv mit großem Brennweitenbereich (22,5 bis 675mm nach KB), Mit 22,5mm sehr guter Weitwinkelbereich, Die Abbildungsleistung des Objektives ist für diesen großen Brennweitenbereich sehr gut, Sehr effektiver optischer VR-Bildstabilisator, Die Digitalkamera liegt sehr gut in der Hand, Hochauflösendes 3,0 Zoll großes Display (921.000 Subpixel) mit großem Einblickwinkel, Hohe Bildrate ...
  • Cons: Nicht kompatibel zur 256GB Lexar Professional 600x Speed (UHS-I, Class 10) SDXC Speicherkarte, Keine manuellen und halb automatischen Fotoprogramme, Nur sehr wenige Einstellungsmöglichkeiten, Kein Blitzschuh vorhanden, Keine Aufnahme im RAW-Format möglich, Keine Ladeschale mitgeliefert (Akku muss in der Kamera geladen werden)
