The basis of the L830 is its incredible 34x wide Nikkor ED optical zoom lens. It has a 35mm equivalent of 22.5-765mm that will cover any shooting situation you will find yourself in. Lens-Shift Vibration Reduction helps to keep the camera steady when using the telephoto end, while the side lens zoom controls give you a dSLR-like feel. Capturing images for the camera is a 16-Megapixel, 1/2.3-inch CMOS imaging sensor. At the top right you can see the flash release, which will pop-up the built-in flash unit (more on that below).

For low-light shooting, Nikon has included this small but powerful pop-up flash unit. The manual pop-up flash has a range of up to 29ft. (W) at ISO auto, which will decrease very quickly when you start to zoom. This will work well in small to medium sized areas as well as a great fill light in bright situations.

On top of the camera you will find the Power button, shutter release with coupled zoom control, stereo microphone and built-in speaker. The simple controls allow for incredible ease of use.

Composing and viewing your captured images is accomplished with this tilting 3.0-inch, 920,000 dot LCD screen. Tilting the screen allows you to shoot at odd angles as well as removing glare from the screen. The screen shows approx. 99% field-of-view and has 6 levels of brightness so you can see it in all lighting conditions.

Controls on back: Starting at the top you will find the dedicated video recording button. Next are the shooting mode and playback buttons, that let you control the camera in all modes. The 4-way controller allows you to navigate the menu systems as well as acting as shortcuts to the flash, exposure compensation, macro shooting and self-timer settings. At the bottom are the MENU and Delete buttons.

On the right side of the camera you will find the USB multi-port and HDMI output. With an optional HDMI cable, you can connect to any HDTV to view your images and HD videos. 
















nikon_l830_sd.JPG
Storing your captured images is any SD/SDHC/SDXC style memory cards, to accompany the 59MB of internal storage. With the HD movie capabilities, we recommend using a high speed memory card of Class 10 or higher. The camera is shown here with the SanDisk Extreme Pro UHS-1 memory card that we used for our tests.





nikon_l830_batteries.JPG
The L830 uses AA type batteries for power instead of a proprietary battery pack. This allows you to purchase batteries anywhere if you would happen to run out. The camera will run on ordinary Alkaline, NiMH rechargeable or Lithium batteries. With the different types of batteries, the camera is able to capture between 390 (alkaline) to 1180 (lithium) images. We still recommend using rechargeable NiMH batteries that provide up to 680 images but can be recharged multiple times.
