Perfect Point and Perfect Shoot
by Avit Kori on 2015-06-18
With a limited Budget of 15k I started hunting for a advanced point and shoot
camera that will fufill my basic need for casual photography.
After a lot of research I finalized on this model.
With 38x optical zoom and added WI-FI/NFC functionality this seems a
worthy succesor to the L830. I haven't used any of the previous models, so
won't compare it with them.
Lets begin with
Accesories: While the product description does not mention it, the box is
loaded with tons of accesories that include: 4 Duracell batteries, 4
Rechargable ni-mh battries, 4x battery charger from Nikon, TV-out cable, USB cable, 8GB
class 10 SDHC card, lens cap with attachment, Shoulder strap and user manual.
The seller offered a HDMI cable and decent camera pouch (nikon soft-3 model) alongside.
Thats almost 3k worth of goodies.
Build quality and Form factor: I ordered the red one and it looks pretty
decent. The surface is however prone to finger prints. The camera weighs 538g
and is quite bulky to hold.However it provide a firm rubberised grip. There
are two zoming options. One place next to the shutter button and another on
the lens.There is a dedicated switch for wi-fi and video mode.The
HDMI/TV-out/USB Inouts are covered for protection.
The Wifi works with Android and Iphones and requires you to download the mobile
camera utility to access the camera hotspot.
The LCD clarity is crisp and clear with a distinct resolution of 921k dots.
The LCD tilt feature is good for capturing floor and ceiling pictures without
tilting your head. However you cannot use it for selfies.
Battery backup: While this model does not come with rechargable lithium
batteries, the option for 4 AA batteries always has its advantages of not having to
wait for recharging the batteries when they run out of juice. It's always
easier to carry 4 spare cells and replace them.Nikon claims to shoot a
whopping 590 images with this backup. I obvioulsy haven't tested this though.
A noticable con is the battery compartment lid is a tedious to close and open.
It's not a part that can survive a long run with rough use.
Image quality and Zoom: The Image quality at this price point is pretty decent but not amazing.
The zoom works well, but with higher zoom levels you will start seeing loss in
the quality. Again the low-light captures tend to have a lot of noise. Which I
think is common with most camera in this range. It has support for most
of the shooting modes(ex. Sports, Fireworks, Bird watch etc. ). There is a shortcut
for the macro mode as well.It also support 1080p recording upto 60p.
I wish flipkart would let me share some pics from the camera.
So finally to sum it all this camera is definately a worthy buy at this price point.

Really superb camera... received it on time (i.e. within 4 days of ordering). got all the accessories with it as given. 8 GB SDHC card, camera pouch(with an interior pad and a elongated strap), 4 Duracell Non-Rechargeable batteries, 4 Nikon rechargeable batteries, a battery charger with cable, lens cap,lens cap strap, camera strap, HDMI cable, a TV out cable and of course the camera with the warranty card & details of the service centres.
Excellent camera for starters in photography and video production.

Excellent camera, specially for the price. It comes with everything you would need to get started.
It has a lot of potential and you can take some amazing pictures and video with it if you know what you're doing but even as a point and shoot on auto mode it's awesome! Check out pictures attached that were taken from this camera and if you wanna see what kind of video potential it has, watch this video that was entirely recorded with this camera and just a tripod.
My only complaint is that video autofocus is a little slow sometimes but only in macro situations.

I bought it for 13k with nikon bag and 8gb class 10 memory with 4 extra duracell AA batteries. Camera quality is awesome specialy macro mode and video quality is superb full hd. This is the best semi slr for the range upto 17k. It is even better than nikon p530 which costs 17k. I m happy with this cam. Amazon service is quite fast. If u wanna buy cam from 10k to 17k this is the bst product in this range.
Very good and sturdy camera

Awsome point and shoot camera. Amazing clicks in both day light and low light conditions. When used with Flash, it doesn't create a glare effect and pictures comes very clean and natural. Has a very good grip and can be easily used with one hand even by kids. Used it for my wedding and I can say that it was at par with the photos clicked by the hired cameraman's dslr. I am planning to create a album from the photos clicked by this camera. Captured all the moments beautifully.

Very good produce ...as per expectation .....so happy with it..
This seemed an obvious choice for its price and good ratings on Amazon
by Amazon Customer on 2015-12-26
I use a dslr and wanted a point and shoot camera to fill in the gap. This seemed an obvious choice for its price and good ratings on Amazon. While after using it for a couple of days here's my review -
- red is a very good colour and suits the camera
- the flexibility provided on the lcd screen is an add on
- good quality of the pics
- one of the reasons I bought this for the 40cx zoom, but in reality it doesn't seem enough as 40x is a relative factor of its FL. I get a pretty similar zoom in my 55-250 mm lens in dslr.
- the lens has no cover which after using dslr I am just not used to. It's seems a lot of risk that the lens is prone to - even after switching the camera.
- slow processing.
All in all, I would avoid this if given a second chance.
Good camera nice camera @lowest price

Great work by Nikon. That's the quality of Nikon that it make the product user friendly easy to use I learn all function almost in a day great battery backup took 400 images in a single charge also provide Duracell battery .it's also loaded with pre installed mode which is useful . working with this mode was awesome.. Specially moon and bird mode.I was looking for canon sx420 but finally I decided to go with Nikon and fortunatly I was right .no other companies provide this type of features in their budget camera.WiFi NFC is plus point..display is crispy and clear with rotating functionality.. Also helpful.Overall it score excellent in all field.at this budget price
