Summary: This is my first Nikon and I love it! For the last 20 years I have only owned & used Canon. While I am still exploring/learning about all of the features of the Coolpix L820, this is the best camera I have ever owned. I am highly impressed with the cameras zoom capabilities & the picture clarity when the camera is in zoom mode. The camera is easy to navigate and use. I can honestly say that this camera has made me a Nikon fan for life.
Excerpt: I've waited until I've owned the camera for at least 6 months to write the review. I've taken it on two long trips, one was almost three weeks.<br /><br />In that time, with the best NiCad batteries in it, it took shots for all the time I was on the longest trip without changing. Maybe because it has four of them, but you just don't worry about it.<br /><br />Plug in a LARGE SD chip and you have all your movies and pictures on on chip.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Worry free
