What People Are Saying:
Critics like the zoom and other features on the Nikon Coolpix L810, but say its shooting performance is slow and it doesn't do well indoors or in low light without flash. Consumer Reports rated it very good for image quality and flash photos, and noted that its image stabilizer is better than many cameras. User reviews are strongly positive, with most praising the zoom lens, the still picture and video quality, and the ease of use; any complaints typically center on slow focusing, fuzzy images and short battery life.
- CNET: "The L810 performs poorly in low light and indoors without a flash, and its shooting performance is slow, as is its autofocus. The bottom line: The Nikon Coolpix L810 offers a lot of specs at a low price. If you need fast shooting performance, though, you'll need to spend more money."
- PhotographyBlog.com: "The Nikon Coolpix L810 would suit the outdoor rambler who likes to take pictures of wildlife without disturbing them. Alternatively the large zoom is useful for the sloth in all of us that simply can't be bothered to walk there. Where the Nikon Coolpix L810 gets let down is in the image quality section."
- CameraLabs.com: "(T)he Coolpix L810 could prove an attractive option for point-and shooters looking to upgrade from a compact to something with a much longer zoom reach without the additional complication that might go with some of the more advanced super-zooms."
