Nikon Coolpix P530 Review


The Coolpix P530 is Nikon's latest super-zoom bridge camera addition to its Performance range of feature-packed Coolpix cameras. Replacing the Coolpix P520, the new camera boasts a 16.1MP high-sensitivity CMOS sensor with a sensitivity range of ISO...

The Nikon Coolpix P530 is a bit of a mixed bag. On the one hand it’s hard to justify it as a compelling upgrade over the P520, mainly as it cuts so many features from the old camera. Gone are its GPS ability, tiltable (and slightly larger) screen, plus...

Nikon P530 Review


If you like to bring your subjects up close, but you've got to stay within budget, the 16-megapixel Nikon P530 might prove to be of interest. Sure, it doesn't have quite as much telephoto reach as does the simultaneously-launched, 60x-zoom Nikon P600,...

Available from February 2014, the Nikon Coolpix P530 ships in only one body color: black. List pricing is set at around US$450 -- only $50 less than the P600. For our money, that makes its more feature-rich, long-zooming, Wi-Fi equipped sibling the...

43x stabilized optical zoom ; Lots of movie modes including slomo ; Respectable and versatile burst modes ; Interval timer ; Programmable Fn button

Unresponsive menu ; Video recording lag ; No GPS or Wifi

It would be nice if you could have your pick of features on an affordable super-zoom, but as in all things, you generally get what you pay for. When you're on a budget, though, what you get can differ widely and the balance of features becomes more...

Easy Point and Shoot


Very easy to use and the pictures are awesome. I'm older and wanted a view finder to steady my shooting but don't really need it. Great camera!

Great Camera


Love the great pictures it takes. But I have arthritis and it is a little heavy for me when trying to capture my birds which requires time.
