According to more than a thousand reviews on Amazon.com, customers are pleased with the Nikon Coolpix L830. On average, reviewers give the camera 4.5 out of five stars as of May 2015.
Customers claim that the camera takes high quality, crisp photos at a relatively low price. They say the camera is sturdy and well made, and they are impressed with the quality of its HD video recording. They also enjoy the camera's auto focus speed, which many say is much faster than other cameras in a similar price range. Reviewers are pleased with the camera's battery life, wide angle lens, silent zoom during video and ability to take pictures in low lighting conditions.
Negative reviews cite the camera's lack of a viewfinder. This makes it especially difficult to take photographs outside because the digital display may be hard to see in bright light. Reviewers also say that the camera's automatic white balance feature works poorly when taking photos indoors. Some customers also criticize the camera's lack of an automatic flash feature.
According to Nikon, the Coolpix L830 is a point-and-shoot camera designed to provide ease of use while producing high-quality photos like those associated with more advanced cameras. While it is a discontinued product, it is available on Amazon.com and through other online retailers as of May 2015.
