Single (default setting), Continuous H (images are captured continuously at a rate of about 8 fps), Continuous L (up to 38 images are captured continuously at a rate of about 2.1 fps), Continuous H:120 fps (50 frames are captured at a speed of about 1/120 s or faster), Continuous H:60 fps (25 frames are captured at a speed of about 1/60 s or faster), BSS (Best Shot Selector), Multi-shot 16 The maximum recording time for a single movie clip is 35 minutes, even if there’s sufficient space on the card for more, and Nikon recommends using a speed class 6 or faster card for Full HD recording. The L820 has Nikon's new menu layout, which is easy to navigate. Nearly everything is set through the menu button. The 3 inch screen is bright and clear and has a respectable 921k dot resolution.The COOLPIX L820 has a 16 Megapixel CMOS sensor, replacing the CCD sensor of the same resolution in its predecessor, which produces images with a maximum size of 4608×3456 pixels and saves them as JPEGs at a one of two compression settings. Typically, Large Fine JPEGs files are 4-6MB in size. It’s interesting to note that Canon has taken the same route with the PowerShot SX510 HS, replacing the CCD sensor in its predecessor with a CMOS one of the same resolution, in this case 12.1 Megapixels. Digital Filters - The L820 has both colour modes and filters to help you take unique and creative pictures. Pink 1. Equipped with a CCD sensor with an effective pixel count of 20.1-million pixels and a 5x optical zoom NIKKOR lens
At the other end of the scale a 765mm gets you pretty close in to fairly distant action and, providing your subject is reasonably large, people or vehicles, say, rather than birds, you can expect to get great shots. The other thing to be aware of with a massive zoom lens is that it can be quite difficult to hold steady at the maximum telephoto, but 765mm is quite manageable and the built-in stabilization makes framing subjects that much easier.We went into the image testing with low expectations, built on previous generation Nikon compacts that haven't stood up to the company's benchmark of excellence. Looking at the camera for what it is and how much it costs, the ISO performance, sharpness and colour reproduction are fantastic. The L820 is a revelation and such a relief to see.

At the other end of the range the 675mm telephoto gets you a little closer in than on the earlier COOLPIX L810, but not quite as close the 720mm of the PowerShot SX510 HS. That said, the difference isn’t massive and for most people it won’t be an issue – I’ve pictured their respective ranges below.
