Nikon Coolpix L820 Reviews

Imaging-resource reviews the Nikon Coolpix L820 and writes;
“At the heart of the Nikon Coolpix L820 is a new 16.0 megapixel CMOS image sensor. Its upper sensitivity limit of ISO 1,600 equivalent is unchanged from the L810, but it can now range as high as ISO 3,200 equivalent in Auto mode, where its predecessor was stuck at the lower limit even for Auto ISO.”

Photographyblog reviews the Nikon Coolpix L820 and writes;
“We went into the image testing with low expectations, built on previous generation Nikon compacts that haven’t stood up to the company’s benchmark of excellence. Looking at the camera for what it is and how much it costs, the ISO performance, sharpness and colour reproduction are fantastic. The L820 is a revelation and such a relief to see.”

Ephotozine reviews the Nikon Coolpix L820 and writes;
“The Nikon Coolpix L820 packs plenty of zoom and image quality is good. If you like shooting wide landscapes, you’ll appreciate the wide 22.5mm lens, you can also zoom in to isolate your subject. It is quite heavy, but the screen has a decent resolution and the hand grip is rubberised. We also like the full 1080p HD video recording, battery life, 8 fps continuous shooting and the range of colours available.”
