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 L820 and the Coolpix L830) and Canon (such as the PowerShot SX510 HS and the PowerShot SX500 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 461k dots), creates panoramas in-camera and captures 3D images.

However, on average it records lower quality movies (720p @ 30fps vs 1080p @ 24fps), doesn't record high-speed movies (none vs 240 fps), doesn't record movies in 24p, has a CCD-family sensor (CCD vs CMOS) and lacks a built in HDR feature.
