Manufacturer's Description

The Nikon COOLPIX P510 - Covering all the angles beautifully.

The COOLPIX P510, successor to the hugely popular COOLPIX P500, offers an astounding 42x optical NIKKOR zoom lens that ranges from a powerful 1000mm super-telephoto focal length, down to a 24mm wide-angle. It also packs a punch with its 16-megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor and advanced lens-shift vibration reduction. The P510 is able to capture detail that would be too far away to reach with any other camera. Steady shots are ensured in any situation, thanks to advanced lens-shift vibration reduction.

Zooming beyond expectations: the high performance COOLPIX P510

An excellent performer with unparalleled range, the compact COOLPIX P510 boasts a 42x zoom, a tiltable high resolution 921K-dot LCD monitor and Full HD (1080p) movie recording with stereo sound.

For everything from wide-angle shots of a group of friends to long-reaching frames of dolphins out at sea, the astonishingly powerful wide-angle to super-telephoto range of the COOLPIX P510 covers all circumstances. Its 16-megapixel backlit CMOS sensor and advanced lens-shift vibration reduction ensure sharp shooting in any light, so that even at longer focal lengths, frames remain steady and subjects are pin-sharp.

One-touch access to movie mode means you can switch easily from taking stills to filming in Full HD (1080p) with stereo sound. Optical zoom and autofocus functions are still available when filming, and the COOLPIX P510 can record in slow or fast motion using speeds of up to 120 fps (VGA). Movies can be shot in iFrame format and a built-in HDMI connector lets you connect the camera directly to an HDTV, to view photos and films straight away with family and friends.

The tiltable high resolution LCD monitor will help you discover your creative side, making it easy to take shots from above or below to get a different perspective. Built-in GPS records the exact location where a picture was taken as a geotag in the image data.

Advanced Lens-shift VRII realises the equivalent of a shutter speed setting that's four stops faster than the actual physical setting.

42x optical zoom and Nikon VRII image stabilisation

A 16.1 megapixel Back-illuminated CMOS image sensor is paired with a 42x zoom NIKKOR ED glass lens that covers the phenomenal focal range of 24 mm wide-angle to 1000 mm super-telephoto (35 mm format equivalent). Advanced Lens-shift VRII realises the equivalent of a shutter speed setting that's four stops faster than the actual physical setting. This is a big aid to achieving consistently sharp results, particularly when taking advantage of the super-zoom, shooting macros or recording 1080p Full HD movies.

The continuous shooting and compositing capabilities of the Back-illuminated CMOS image sensor helps you take beautiful Night landscape or Night portrait pictures while shooting with the camera in hand.

Optimised controls and designed for efficient handling

The 7.5 cm (3-in.) vari-angle 921k-dot (approx.) high-resolution Clear colour display can be tilted as much as 90 degrees (approx.) upward or 80 degrees (approx.) downward. You can assign often-used functions to the new Function button for quick one-touch access. The handgrip is designed to help minimise camera shake. And the body includes a side-mounted zoom control for stable handling.

High-speed continuous shooting helps capture all the action

The COOLPIX P510 keeps you ahead of the action with high-speed shooting options. With a press of the dedicated continuous shooting mode button, you can quickly switch from single-frame to High-speed continuous shooting at a rapid 6fps (approx.) for full-resolution (4608 x 3456) images*. Other modes include Sports continuous mode (approx. 60fps/120fps) and the Pre-shooting cache.

Beautiful handheld still images and movies at night

The continuous shooting and compositing capabilities of the Back-illuminated CMOS image sensor helps you take beautiful Night landscape or Night portrait pictures while shooting with the camera in hand. The same benefit is also seen when shooting 1080p Full HD movies.

As a FINAL addendum to this review I have added this 'postscript' on 23 February 2013. During the past 9 months I have now taken over 10,000 frames on my P510 completely trouble free. The camera has done everything asked of it and I am as enthusiastic as ever about the camera, which can now be acquired from about £240. This must be the bargain of the century! In typical modern marketing mode Nikon have now produced a 'P520' but other than cramming another 2 megapixels out of the chip and adding one fifth of one inch to the viewing screen there is very little in the new specification worthy of note and of course you will pay circa £400 for the privilege. To summarise, yes battery life could be a little better and focussing on moving objects a little quicker (a problem removed by pre-focussing and keeping the shutter button part depressed) but the very long list of 'plus' points FAR outweigh any shortcomings. This a remarkable machine and I have been so impressed I have completed on-line half a dozen books on both Photobox and Blurb systems, including one commercial ISBN production. Go for it!

I am not allowed a second review but as a follow-up to my review of three months ago I can say that this sensational camera has completely re-vitalised my photography. It is easy to run out of adjectives but one moment I am photographing a pin point sharp bee on a flower, the next moment a wonderful landscape and the next an express train passing the local station. I cannot stop taking pictures. I am like a 16 year old with a new toy rather than a 70 year old pensioner. I am absolutely thrilled by the product, I now know how to 'drive' it and all I can do is repeat, on 5 september 2012, my early June 'highly recommended' opinion. It is a great all-in-one package. Go for it!

Lugging around a DSLR with a long telephoto lens can be very tiring but I like to have a camera with me every time I go out. I bought one of these P510s a few weeks ago when they were first introduced. I didn't really know what to expect. It sounds great on paper but was the blurb too good to be true? I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. My first few shots of greenfinches at my back garden bird feeder were superb - and they were hand held. I couldn't hand-hold my DSLR with a 500mm lens like that. It needs a monopod or tripod. The P510 is very easy to use and has most of the features of my Nikon DSLRs. The only slight drawback is that the speed of focusing is slower than my DSLR and telephoto. Fine if the subject is sitting still but not so good if it is moving. It won't replace my DSLR completely but as a 'second camera' to have with me all the time, it is excellent.

I have moved from using DSLR cameras all the time largely because of their weight and the need to frequently carry extra lenses to cope with both long and macro work. To loose the "Raw" facility with this camera was I thought going to be a major negative but the picture qualiity, power of the zoom and overall standard of the camera are outstanding.

My main interests are wildlife and macro photography. So small birds, their darting movements and indifferent light are my daily lot and the camera has proved equal to the task.

The zoom - well other reviwers have commented on its ability which is simply outstanding and the image stabilisation is equal to the task.

I have to admit to not yet mastering the capturing of movement yet but it is a still early days.

This is the first review I have written on Amazon inspite of being a regular customer for a number of years but I simply have to let other potential customers know what a great product Nikon have produced. If I can master the process I will try to add a few pictures I have taken.

After months of deliberation, trawling reviews, and veering between this and the Canon SX40 and the Panasonic FZ150, I finally decided on the Nikon P510... and I'm so glad I made that decision!

I've never owned a Nikon before and all my previous cameras have been compacts so this was a bit of a sea change for me. I'm not a lover of bulky cameras and am a firm believer in the old adage 'the best camera is the one you have on you', so DSLR and bridge cameras have never really appealed. Nevertheless, I often found I just needed more reach, even though I've been using the 16x Panasonic TZ20.

So when Nikon brought out the longest zoom lens to date with the whopping 42x zoom I was intrigued. But then I was concerned that Canon seem much more established in this market with a greater following, and their image quality on the SX40 has been reviewed to be marginally better, albeit with a 35x zoom. But then the FZ150 seems to have been put ahead of both the Nikon and Canon for speed and quality among other things. But there was simply no way I was happy to suddenly go up from a pocket-sized 16x zoom to a bridge camera offering me 24x, it just didn't appeal that much. I may well have been happy with the Canon, but have to say I'm a bit disappointed in their LCD screen which should really have been upgraded by now, and I think more effort could have been put into updating the camera when the SX40 was launched, but it did offer some advantages and the articulated screen is a great tool. For me it came a close second.

Ultimately though, if I was going to cart a bridge camera around I wanted the best zoom there is. But was that at the risk of compromising everything else?
