As well as being compared against other super zooms, the Nikon Coolpix L810 is also often compared to entry-level DSLRs and travel zooms. The Nikon Coolpix L810's top rivals come from Nikon (such as the Coolpix L340 and the Coolpix L840) and Canon (such as the PowerShot SX400 IS and the PowerShot SX410 IS)

compared toSuper zoom competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Nikon L810 compared to other super zoom competitors include: it has a slightly higher resolution screen (921k dots vs 460k dots), has better image stabilization (lens vs none), creates panoramas in-camera and captures 3D images.

However, on average it has a much narrower wide angle lens (23 mm vs 4 mm), doesn't record high-speed movies (none vs 240 fps), has a CCD-family sensor (CCD vs CMOS), lacks a built-in HDR feature and has a significantly shorter battery life (300 shots vs 590 shots).
