  • Summary: In the past, I have not been much of a fan of ultra-zoom cameras. The large zoom lenses typically cause the cameras to have sluggish performance, resulting in shaky image quality and missed photos of fast-moving subjects. With the new crop of ultra-zoom cameras, though, I've changed my mind.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Digitaltrends
21 July 2011
  • 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.
  • 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

  • Summary: With its 36X optical zoom, the Nikon Coolpix P500 is the current ruler of the megazoom world. At 35X, only the Canon PowerShot SX30 is in close pursuit, but the SX30's 24mm wide angle specification is no match for the P500's superwide 22.5mm lens, a feat that has yet to be equalled by any other...

The Nikon COOLPIX P500: Ultra Zoom Personified

Shutterbug
1 November 2010
  • Excerpt: The 12.1-megapixel Nikon COOLPIX P500 ($399.95, MSRP) is an integral lens camera with an incredible zoom range of 36x—that’s optical, not digital zoom and it gives you the equivalent angle of view of a wide-angle 22.5mm to a super tele of 810mm!
