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 (Black)
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.

5 Star Review   By Skribby on Adorama - Sep 29, 2013   

I use this product in my work environment; I am a Quality Engineer and I take pictures of the parts that have defects and send the back to our production facility. The Macro images are perfect and I can get an up close picture in Detail and it is lightweight. This Camera is so Good my company Quality Manager is buying 4 more of this same camera From Adorama. I have had this camera for only a month and have no negative comments at this time.

Excellent Superzoom
5 Star Review   By Kenosha RR on Adorama - Jun 13, 2013   

This camera is easy to use, takes great low light pictures, has a fast shutter release, and surprisingly good optics for a 42x zoom. The directions tell the owner to charge the battery in the camera (which takes time away from usage taking pictures), but

Great Sensor
4 Star Review   By Kenosha RR on Adorama - May 28, 2013   

The best part of this camera is that the sensor produces an image with lots of detail. Also, the optics are surprisingly good for a camera with a 42x zoom. The shutter release is fast for a non-DSLR, and the camera can be operated with one hand. The "P" s
