Moving Pictures

You’ll receive exceptional quality video and stereo sound with the COOLPIX P520’s Full HD (1080p) movie recording. Switching instantly from photos to video with the dedicated movie-record button you can use the optical zoom with autofocus and film in slow or fast motion at up to 120fps. Capturing all the best bits, you can even take still photos while filming the action. And with HDMI connectivity, your clear, crisp recording can be enjoyed directly on HD televisions[2].

Explore the Possibilities

With the COOLPIX P520 you can bring dramatic scenes to life.

And with 19 Scene modes to choose from, you can achieve great shots just by selecting the mode that matches your situation. Whether you prefer to take full advantage of the auto-mode function, use the many effects and filters to suit your shooting conditions, or take greater creative control with one of the PSAM modes, you will enjoy producing fantastic photographs and movies with simplistic ease.
