Nikon Coolpix P510

 

The 16 megapixel Nikon Coolpix P510 is a compact camera in the superzoom class, that sports a 42X optical zoom, covering a currently unmatched focal range of 24-1000mm (equivalent), compared to 38X (23-810mm) from its predecessor the P500. As well as...

Extreme 42x (24-1000m equivalent) wide angle zoom ; Very capable optical image stabilization system ; Effective automatic CA/fringing correction ; PASM shooting modes ; Good image quality at low ISOs ; Good performance ; Continuous shooting up to 7fps...

Small, pokey electronic viewfinder ; EVF/LCD switch is manual, not automatic ; Slow f/3-f/5.9 lens ; Occasional focus hunting at telephoto settings ; Noise levels increase noticeably at ISO 800 and above ; No RAW option

The P510 is a well-featured little camera built around an incredible 42X zoom lens. The lens is the P510's main selling point and anyone looking for a go-everywhere camera for travel or general-purpose photography will be impressed by its versatility....

Nikon Coolpix P510

 

Bigger than a compact, but smaller than an SLR, the 42x Nikon Coolpix P510 packs a high-quality lens that delivers sharp images.

Long 42x zoom lens. Sharp images. Snappy performance. 1080p video capture. Integrated GPS.

High-speed burst limited to 5 shots. No hot shoe or mic input.

You can frame images via the camera's rear 3-inch LCD, which is quite sharp at 921k dots, or the eye-level electronic viewfinder. The LCD is hinged so it can be viewed from above or below, but it doesn't swivel out from the camera like the display on...

Nikon Coolpix P510 review

 

For those after the absolute longest lens on a compact camera, meet the Nikon Coolpix P510. At roughly the same size as Nikon's last full-size megazoom, the 36x 22.5-810mm P500 , the P510 packs an "oh wow"-inducing 42x 24-1,000mm lens.

The Nikon Coolpix P510 is a fun camera to shoot with, overflowing with photo and movie features, and backed by very fast shooting performance and excellent low-ISO photo quality.

The P510 has trouble focusing at the telephoto end and its low-light/high-ISO photo quality has room for improvement. Also, the camera feels cheaply constructed.

The Nikon Coolpix P510 is easy to recommend for its features, photos, and performance, but the usefulness of a 42x zoom lens is debatable.

The Nikon Coolpix P510 is the successor to the company's popular 36x P500. The P510 ups the zoom factor to 42x, although it does so by sacrificing some coverage on the wide-angle side of things. The camera adds a built-in GPS and ups the resolution to...
