  • Summary: The Nikon P500 superzoom has a lot more to offer than just an enormous 36x lens. It's one of the best superzooms for sale.

Nikon Coolpix P500 Review

  • Summary: The Nikon P500 is a worthy successor to the P100.  While it is lacking some features that I think would push it over the top (e.g., RAW image capture, HD slow motion, etc.), it still has a lot to offer.  All in all, the P500 is a solid performer as a casual shooter and vacation camera.

  • Summary: The Nikon CoolPix P500 sells at a market operating price of Rs. 23,250. This is a really great camera and does well in design, build quality, features as well as performance. The camera is one of the better superzooms we have tested and with the image stabilization options, zoomed in images look really good. However, the only drawback we had found with this camera was the pricing. That being said, if one has just above Rs.

  • Summary: The Nikon Coolpix P500 improves on its predecessor's features and shooting performance, but its photos and video quality still aren't as good as the rest of the package.
  • Pros: The Nikon Coolpix P500 has a solid design, is overflowing with photo and movie features, and has very fast shooting performance for its class.
  • Cons: Its photo and video quality is very soft, particularly at high ISOs and in low-light conditions. It also lacks raw support and auto picture rotation.

  • Conclusion: Apart from that, there are some interesting features which make the P500 stand out from the crowd - such as the high speed video shooting and design touches like the articulated screen and zoom control on the lens barrel.

  • Excerpt: Nikon is well known for their powerful P-series of super-zoom cameras, and their latest edition is the most powerful model yet. The Coolpix P500 boasts the longest zoom ever integrated in a Coolpix camera, with 36x magnification. Nikon has also incorporated their Nikkor ED glass into the lens construction, which has been passed down from their D-series dSLR lenses.

  • Conclusion: It won't fit in your pocket, but Nikon's Coolpix P500 is a killer camera that combines sublime speed with a huge 36x zoom lens, HD-video recording, and a high-res articulating LCD.
  • Pros: 36x optical zoom. Fast. Sharp images and very good low-light performance. 1080p video capture. Manual controls.
  • Cons: Bulky. Expensive for a point-and-shoot camera.

Nikon Coolpix P500 Review

  • Conclusion: We have no problems recommending the Nikon Coolpix P500. It’s a great camera for those heading for vacations, as you’ll have a huge focal range at your fingertips. Photo quality is solid, and you have loads of tricks to play with beyond the basic digicam, thanks to the new CMOS sensor. The P500 has its flaws — as does every camera – including battery life and image stabilization. The pluses far outweigh the negatives. Zoom on!
  • Pros: 36x optical zoom (22.5-810mm), 12-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor, 8fps for five shots, 1080p video capture
  • Cons: Sensor-shift stabilization not as good as OIS, Battery only rated for 220 shots, Awkward placement for burst key, Uses AC adaptor charging
