It is powered by AA batteries.

James Loader, senior product manager for consumer products at Nikon UK, said: ‘With the Dynamic Fine Zoom that brings you 68x closer to the action, and a vari-tilt screen for unique angles, you can really have some fun with this camera.’

UK pricing and an on-sale date had not been announced at the time of writing.

In the US, the Coolpix L830 is due out next month costing $299.95.
