Nikon Coolpix L820: 47 facts and highlights

1. megapixels

2. sensor size

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.

3. continuous shooting at high resolution

Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.

4. weight

5. maximum light sensitivity

With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.

6. longer battery life

CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.

7. video recording

8. has a stereo microphone

A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.

9. fastest shutter speed

A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.

10. pixel density

11. width

16. has GPS

GPS enables global positioning, useful in map, geo-tagging or navigation apps.

17. screen size

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.

18. Can create panoramas in-camera

It allows you to take multiple photos capturing different parts of the scene, and then joins them together into a single photo.

21. has an optical viewfinder

An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens sees. There is no time lag and they require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders which can drain battery life. They are also better in low light situations.

22. has a BSI sensor

A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.

23. optical zoom

The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.

24. number of microphones

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.

25. has a CMOS sensor

CMOS image sensors are slowly replacing CCD sensors, due to reduced power consumption and better image quality. They can be very compact and cost relatively little to produce.
