With so many cameras on the market it is often hard to know what one is for you, but if you are on a budget then this makes it a little easier to narrow down. Okay, we know there is still a huge choice of cameras out there that you should consider, but we thought you might like some details on the latest cheap zoom lens camera.
We are talking about the Nikon Coolpix L820, which is an ideal cheap zoom lens camera with its 30x megazoom. What shocks us the most are the Coolpix L820 specs on a camera of this price, such as a 16-megapixel low-light CMOS sensor, the performance is very fast compared to the previous model, and you now get Full HD videos.
The Nikon Coolpix L820 video review below also looks at the high-resolution 3-inch display and a closer look at that all-important zoom lens. There are two ways to control the zoom range that is the usual zoom ring on the front or another on the barrel. There are smaller cameras on the market with similar features, but it is the larger body of the Nikon Coolpix L820 allowing for steadier control and the use of AA batteries.
If you are a novice user then this camera will appeal to you because it is pretty much auto shoot only, so if you want a camera with manual controls the L820 is not it.
Overall, shooting performance is rather good for this class of camera, but the autofocus takes its time to correct itself as you extend the lens, and the lack of viewfinder makes it tough to take images in brighter conditions because of glare from the display. For more information visit Nikon.
The Nikon Coolpix L820 price is $280 and we have to say that is a great price for something that offers so much. Okay, it isn’t perfect, but what do you want for something that is so cheap?
