The 3" LCD 921k-dot display may be tilted letting you capture videos and images from unique perspectives while still having the ability to compose the shot.

16 MP Sensor

    The 16 MP 1/2.3" CMOS sensor is capable of recording high resolution imagery that is suitable for both online sharing as well as printing. Additionally, the sensor lends itself to producing HD 1080 video at 60i. Movie recording is accessible via a dedicated movie button.
Nikkor 34x Optical Zoom Lens and Hybrid Vibration Reduction
    The 34x optical zoom provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 22.5-765mm, making this camera suitable for capturing almost any type of scene with ease. This lens benefits from the inclusion of Hybrid Vibration Reduction for stills and videos, which works to reduce the appearance of camera shake and blur that can become increasingly notable when shooting in low-light conditions or at the telephoto end of the zoom range. A 5-axis vibration reduction function is employed when shooting videos, that combines lens-shift vibration with electronic vibration to suppress blur caused by camera shake.
Scene Modes and Easy Auto Mode
    The COOLPIX L830 is specifically designed to allow you to shoot with ease, and concentrate on taking the photo or video, rather than on changing your camera settings. Easy Auto Mode will automatically control all camera settings for true point-and-shoot functionality. For a more specialized approach, you can choose from one of 19 different Scene Modes, including Beach, Snow, Night Portrait, and Sunset, among others, to optimize certain camera settings that best suit the type of scene you are photographing.
