Coolpix L820

Rating: no rating

With a super-zoom 30x NIKKOR lens and Full HD movie recording, the COOLPIX L820 is clever with images - so you donít have to be. Easy Auto mode takes care of the camera settings for you, matching the setup of the camera to the situation you are in and making shooting effortless, while the remarkably sensitive 16-megapixel backlit CMOS image sensor captures outstandingly detailed images, even in low light conditions.







The broad focal range of the L820 encompasses both extreme wide-angles shots such as capturing a sweeping beach landscape, and super-telephoto distances like picking out a distant surfer riding a wave. Its clever side lever helps shift between the two perspectives within seconds, and ensures smooth, steady zooming throughout the entire focal range whether filming or shooting still images. Meanwhile, four different automatic anti-blur functions ensure your subject remains sharp. When the moment is worthy of a movie, a one-touch record button switches instantly to Full HD (1080p) filming, and a large 7.5-cm (3.0-in.) LCD screen displays all the action captured with superb clarity at any time of day or night.



The COOLPIX L820 comes in four colours: plum, blue, red or black.
