Nikon Coolpix P520 Review
4 Star Review  photographyblog.com - Apr 29, 2013

The Nikon Coolpix P520 is a brand new super-zoom camera with an incredible 42x zoom lens. The 18 megapixel Nikon P520 has a back illuminated 18 megapixel CMOS sensor, 3.2-inch 921K-dot vari-angle LCD screen, full 1080p high-definition movies with stereo sound, built-in GPS, an electronic viewfinder and 7fps burst shooting. Priced at £399.99 / $449.95, read our Nikon Coolpix P520 review to find out if that zoom lens is too big for its own good...

Nikon Coolpix P520 (Dark Grey)
3.5 Star Review  cnet.com - Apr 18, 2013

THE GOOD: Give the <b>Nikon Coolpix P520</b> plenty of light and it can turn out some excellent photos throughout its 42x zoom range. It has a lot of shooting options for those who like to fiddle with settings or straight snapshooters; a nice flip-out rotating LCD; and built-in GPS and support for Nikons Wi-Fi adapter for use with Android and iOS devices. THE BAD: Its autofocus system is slow when the lens is zoomed in, especially when compared with other models in its class; battery life is short; and the camera feels cheaply constructed. THE BOTTOM LINE: More point-and-shoot than dSLR in terms of features and performance than some competing high-end megazooms, the Nikon Coolpix P520 is a very good camera for those after a big zoom range, better control over results, and fine picture quality.

Excellent, It is what Nikon says, Almost
5 Star Review   By Len on Adorama - Aug 21, 2013   

I use it as an amateur photographer. It can take excellent Pictures of the Moon. It takes low light pictures. Zoom is incredible. 100% zoom - pixel level requires Tripod of high light levels, but 18mp*42 zoom is 4000 mm. I love it. Negatives: JPG algorithm. Normal is horrible, fine is bad. Nikon, it is only software- At least Give us a raw mode. Focus- at 42 zoom infinite focus is problematical Work around; press shutter key 1/2 aiming at something closer (than the Moon) and then back at your target, or down multi-function button and choose infinite- the mountain. If scene is very bright, use the thumb wheel to choose exposure mode -+ 1 I have taken pictures of flying birds and airplanes through the open sun roof. Real life Pics from ordinary people, facebook- P520 I did buy my wife one also!

I'm Pleased With the P520
4 Star Review   By Saber's Mom on Adorama - Apr 9, 2013   

I chose this camera as a step up from the point-and-shoot pocket type cameras. Took me a long time to decide, but I eventually narrowed my choice to Nikon & Canon, both good names in the camera industry. I chose Nikon over the Canon based on the overall s
