  • I bought the Nikon-refurbed camera. The refurb version comes without auser manual. You need the user manual. For instance, you can\'t evenload the batteries without difficulty. There\'s no marking whatsoever onthe camera for which way the batteries go (hint: There are threebatteries in a line, then one outlier. The outlier and the middle ofthe three have \"+\" up. The other two have \"+\" down).You can download the user manual from Nikon\'s site.You can also download PC software from the Nikon site. However, theuser agreement that you\'re required to accept says it\'s okay for them tosnoop and collect information from your PC. I declined, so I never gotthe Nikon software installed. Windows 8.1 lets you transfer your photosusing the (supplied) USB cable without any add-on software.Auto focusing is slooow and not always successful.Red-eye elimination is done via post-processing in the camera.Mode selection is done via a menu. That means it takes some time.Big plus: Camera takes regular AA batteries, not something proprietary.Obviously, the large zoom range is a major feature.You can set exposure compensation to adjust the resulting picture.It doesn\'t work with flash. I wanted to brighten up a flash picture,so I re-took it with compensation. The result was identical.They say you need a tripod for max zoom. They\'re right: theirstabilization isn\'t up to the task. I tried bracing against asurface, but it wasn\'t good enough. A completely stable setupgave me a sharp max-zoom picture, proving it was shake, not lensquality or focus that was the problem.The SOFT mode selection choice is misleading. It gives you a submenuwhere only one of the choices is SOFT. There are useful non-softchoices in that submenu. One of them is the very useful choice:Backlighting. This is also misleading. If you select YES underBacklighting, it\'s designed to handle high contrast range pictures. Ittakes one \"normal\" picture and multiple temporary pictures. It mergesthem and adjusts to give an adjusted contrast picture that it savesafter the \"normal\" one. In my test shots, it did a pretty good job.Quality of my test pictures was fine. If you consider this to be a bigpoint-and-shoot camera rather than a near-SLR, you\'ll probably becontent with this camera.
  • I got the Nikon L840 to replace my Canon SX-520HS for general photography. So I decided on this Nikon L840 camera.I have now had this Nikon camera for over a year and now can give a decent review on this Nikon camera.Pros: Nice 38X optical zoom lens, exposure controls, easy to use, great sized rubberized hand grip, nice tilt-out rear LCD view-finder, takes SD cards, uses 4 AA batteries, has really good battery life & takes a pretty very good photo indoors [with flash] or outdoors in full daylight conditions.Cons: It feels so cheap with so much plastic, the auto focus sometimes is a bit slow, cumbersome menu system & no mode wheel on top of the camera since there are very few manual settings this camera can do.Overall photo quality seems quite good with this camera. Indoor photo quality with flash & outdoor photo quality in full daylight are actually quite good for me. Taking photos in low-light conditions is a bit harder with this camera & photo quality drops considerably unless you use the flash, but none of my digital cameras really never took a halfway decent low-light photo anyways. Digital video quality is great. It has wi-fi for those that use it. Overall, I am very fairly pleased with the photo & video quality this digital camera produces.I have had similar Nikon \"P series\" digital cameras including Nikon P-500, P-510 and a P-520 and this L-840 from Nikon compares better against the P-500 and P-510 and equals the P-520 in photo qualities. I am rather pleased overall with this Nikon camera.If you need a fairly basic, larger, inexpensive digital camera with a decent-sized zoom that takes pretty good photos & fairly easy to use, I think this Nikon digital camera is about the best you can find in the price range and compares very favorably to similar Canon digital cameras including the SX-510HS [30X optical zoom] and SX-520HS [42X optical zoom] in photo qualities. I gave this Nikon digital camera 5 of 5 stars because I simply think it\'s a great basic super-zoom bridge digital camera.UPDATE: I have now had this Nikon L-840 for over 7 months & overall photos are pretty good still, no change there. Indoor photos are still very good and really a periodic issue with the \"freezing up\" of the camera and me removing and reinserting the 4 AA batteries once in a great while is the only problem that has popped up. No other issues and the camera is still working pretty good. I kept the rating at 5 stars because nothing serious has happened yet with this camera for me.
  • i don\'t like giving reviews before i have had plenty of time to test a product, which is why you get 4 stars and not 5, as i am still testing. i do a lot of testing. most of my effort is in low light. weakness- on off button too small and too low profile. 2nd, button to view pictures just below hand grip. i understand why its there, but move it. camera\'s are for taking pictures not viewing them. when i hold the camera in one hand to take a picture, the 1st knuckle joint can hit this button as i squeeze to take the shot. this button changes the camera mode to view pictures. which means that ones in a life time photo was missed. move that button. i noticed a drop in quality when sequence shots, the latch on the battery compartment feels weak, . in my opinion, this is what will end the life of the camera when it fails... duct tape to the rescue. i know i\'m being hard, but thats who you want to hear from. . now the good stuff. its a great camera, your not a professional, professionals are not looking at point and shoot cameras. so buy the camera. i\'m not going to be a sales man, and run threw all that\'s good, i gave it 4.5 stars, that tells you my thoughts. low light is the big test for any camera, point this at the sky at night, take a picture and you can see the stars in the photo. the camera greatly exceeded my expectations in low light, normal lighting, i\'m still testing, but all cameras can handle normal, its speed and lighting, the win the day for cameras. i have tested the lighting, it passed, the speed, i haven\'t tested, it winter. it\'s cold, so testing is delayed. 4.5 stars, i would buy it again.
