Nikon CoolPix P520 18MP Digital Camera Black

Discontinued.
Condition: Brand new, USA Warranty
The ultimate in COOLPIX zoom power, image quality and versatility. 18.1 MP Low-light CMOS Sensor, 42x Zoom NIKKOR Glass Lens, 3.2" VGA Vari-angle LCD, and 1080p Full HD Video with Stereo Sound.

Professional photographers as well as amateurs will delight in the enhanced standard features of the Nikon Coolpix P520 18.1 MP Digital Camera with a 42x optical zoom, full 1080p HD video, as well as the newest cutting edge technological advances such as built-in GPS that make this one of the hottest new cameras on the market.
 
18.1 MP delivers sharp images regardless of illumination
For weddings and other intimate occasions, when the photographer wishes to snap a discreet picture without the startling interruption of a flash, the Nikon Coolpix P250 18.1 MP delivers sharp images even in areas of low illumination. By incorporating the built-in zoom with this image sensor, it will be as if the photographer is standing only inches from the subject matter of the photograph.

Amazing 42x zoom Nikkor lens
At the heart of this camera is a genuine Nikkor glass lens. The 42x zoom lens provides a jaw-dropping equivalency of 24 mm to 1000 mm for spectacular detail that was impossible before now. Combined with the stunning effects of the 18.1 MP of this camera, photographs will be sharper than ever before.

There is also a revolutionary 3.2-inch vari-angle LCD Display that provides greater flexibility for perfect shots from various heights, with or without the 42x zoom.

Full 1080p HD video with lens-shift VR
The lens-shift VR (vibration reduction), along with a newly developed ACTIVE mode, are helpful tools that reduce the obvious blurs and lines between photographic stills, giving them a sharp image and smooth transition. This preserves the quality of HD video recording with clear, sharp images. Full 1080p HD video capability makes for great video captures without the annoying blurring that happens with other digital camera videos.

Built-in GPS can add connectivity in the remotest of locations
Nature lovers who enjoy long hikes and the photographic opportunities they present will appreciate the built-in GPS feature that not only keeps the photographer on track but also provides identification information on each photo. Built-in GPS is also a valuable feature any time a photographer may be in unfamiliar territory.

All of these features are available for a comparatively low price. In fact, the Nikon Coolpix P520 is a great camera for those who wish to explore the possibilities of photographic composition before moving on to a more expensive camera.

Review submitted for Nikon COOLPIX P530 16.1MP 42x Opt Zoom HD 1080p Digital Camera Black Kit (E2NKCPP530K)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: It is a bigger camera that is light weight - 17 oz compared to others I like the items I got with the package deal
Cons: I thought I could click click click faster, but it is ok, I may have to change settings to increase that speed.
Other Comments: I hope the batteries last, I have not tried 300 pictures in a day yet.... but since it came with two batteries I should be good to go. I do take short videos and that takes power.

Review submitted for Nikon COOLPIX P530 16.1MP 42x Opt Zoom HD 1080p Digital Camera - Black (NKCPP530K)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: I like the camera. Its size is ideal for carrying on trips (such as hiking in the mountains) and it only has one lens. I am slowly learning to adjust the zoom lens as before I had a separate lens for zoom.
Cons: So far, no cons, just learning the ropes and the differences between this new camera and my old one.

By RKT (Texas) August 01, 2014
Review submitted for Nikon COOLPIX P520 18.1MP CMOS Digital Camera with 42x Zoom Lens (Black) Refurbished (NKCPP520KRFB)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: Takes excellent pictures. The HD movie mode is excellent also. I am amazed at how the camera companies continue to improve their products at a rapid pace. The 42x zoom takes relatively sharp and clear images even at maximum. The refurbished camera, so far, has showed no signs of any problems.
Cons: The battery doesn't last as long as the ones in my other cameras. It is imperative to carry a spare.

Pros: Excellent camera. Well packed. Like new from factory.
Cons: Nikon's support. Had problem with lens cover popping out and they requested me to send the whole camera back. Had suggested to exchange the lens cover but they would not agree.
Other Comments: Camera does not have grooves for different lens filters. This is the reason why the cover won't stay in place. Just ordered a different generic cover from Amazon that seals over it; cheaper and less hassle.

4 out of 5 stars   Awesome telephoto, great definition
By TC (Reno, Nevada) March 26, 2014
Review submitted for Nikon COOLPIX P520 18.1MP CMOS Digital Camera with 42x Zoom Lens (Black) Refurbished (NKCPP520KRFB)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: The range of this lens is incredible. 42x optical pulls in even the furthest objects with incredible clarity. Shame it doesn't take the AA like earlier models but the rechargeable may prove to be an asset.
Cons: Somewhat complex in use. It takes a while to get to know all the options. I amstill having problems with fast moving objects (the multi frame option works well). The delay in shutter to write on moving objects causes 'missing' the subject but this may just be something in the manual I haven't got to yet.
Other Comments: ave a feeling this will rapidly becme my favorite camera.

4 out of 5 stars   Fine long range zoom.
By FrankRetiree (Ellsworth, ME) March 18, 2014
Review submitted for Nikon COOLPIX P520 18.1MP CMOS Digital Camera with 42x Zoom Lens (Black) Refurbished (NKCPP520KRFB)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: Relatively compact and light, very wide zoom range up to 1000mm. Decent quality photos at lower ISO's. Built in GPS. PASM plus auto and scene and user select modes.
Cons: Relatively poor battery life. Fairly slow max apertures. Small sensor size. Apparently, inability to use filters as there is no mention of filter size or use of actual filters in manual. Does have Wi-Fi for sharing but only with the inefficient WU 1a adapter.
Other Comments: I was pleasantly surprised by general picture quality. Long tele shots are more problematic due to atmospheric haze and sharpness problems especially handheld. It makes a comfortable travel camera but make sure you have extra charged battery or two.

4 out of 5 stars   Couldn't be happier!
By HappyGram (SF North Bay Area) January 04, 2014
Review submitted for Nikon COOLPIX P520 18.1MP CMOS Digital Camera with 42x Zoom Lens (Black) Refurbished (NKCPP520KRFB)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Smooth zoom, Viewfinder, Image Quality, Comfortable Gripweight
Cons: Haven't Found Any Yet
Other Comments: I primarily take nature shots. All kinds. I have some hand control/strength issues which limit the size and weight of cameras I can use. DSLRs are just too large and heavy for me. Most point & shoots are too small and lack a good grip. The images are beautifully clean and color bright. I often print enlargements and the 18MPs allow for nice sharp 11 x 17" prints. This is proving to be a very comfortable and versatile camera for me. I am still getting used to its settings, as I am used to another camera, but I'm very happy with this camera. I'm sure I'll using it for a long time.

Verified Purchaser
Pros: A Great Little Camera
Cons:
Other Comments: really fantastic 24 to 1000mm (35mm format)lens on this camera. Great features once you learn how to use them. I did event and wedding photography for 30 years. Wish I had one back in those days.Electronic manual focusing a little complicated but works well and really sharp. I really like the fold away LCD screen to protect the surface. I have 3 Nikon DSLR cameras and use this one the most. Highly recommend.

By mainaic (Maine) September 18, 2013
Review submitted for Nikon COOLPIX P520 18.1 MP 42x Zoom Digital Camera - Red (NKCPP520R)
Pros: Zoom Quality, Quality of pictures, Easy to use, price
Cons: Sound When It Turns On
Other Comments: I bought this primarily for its size & zoom power to use while out kayaking, snowmobiling & hiking. I've taken pictures that compare well to my friends Nikon digital SLR. We was out recently taking pictures of a covered bridge, and a turtle perched up on log while kayaking. MY camera is so much easier to deal with when in a kayak because of the size and no changing of lenses and half the price!

By RF (Harrison, Maine) June 23, 2013
Review submitted for Nikon COOLPIX P520 18.1 MP 42x Zoom Digital Camera - Charcoal (NKCPP520DG)
Pros: Awsesome Pictures, Easy to use, Light Weight, Half To Cost Of Dslr
Cons:
Other Comments: I bought this to replace a previous Fuji Film point & shoot camera that died. I'm still learning many of the features on this camera. I took it out with me in the kayak today and got some fabulous pictures of a loon nesting. I had to Zoom in quite a ways to get some close ups of her. I am very happy with this camera. I tried using the continuous shooting feature, so far its good but I want to try it out at Drag way to see how it does with the cars taking off from a dead still stop.

Other Comments: My wife will be the primary user, as it was a gift for her. There are so many great features that she was overwhelmed at first. She really loves it and is excited to see what she will be able to do with it. I was happy with the price and what came with it as far as accessories.
