Nikon[October 2022] After breaking my FujiFilm FinePix S8200 I picked up a second-hand (although in pristine condition) Nikon Coolpix L820 as a replacement. To compare with the Fujifilm:


  • Also takes 4 x AA batteries

  • Also 16.0MP

  • Also 1080p video
  • 30x Optical Zoom instead of 40x
  • No viewfinder
  • No manual shutter speed/F-stops
  • Seems to have better image stabilisation (in the lens?)
  • Neither have microphone input
  • Neither have manual focus
  • Only one macro mode
  • More compact

17/10/22: The macro mode seems reasonable...

Here's one I took in 2013.


13/10/22: Without access to manual shutter settings and the 40x Optical Zoom
(only 30x) of my Fujifilm, it just doesn't do the Moon justice (although not the best conditions/phase).
