Summary: We bought this camera from another store about 2 years ago. Recently, our daughter started showing great interest in photography -- so we looked to get her a camera of her own for Christmas. After pouring over specs and reviews...nothing matched the Coolpix P510 for quality, features or price. So we bought hers on Amazon as a refurbished unit. Even more, my brother-in-law was looking for a camera for their family and I recommended this one to them. They love it too!
Great camera, good size, good batt life, great zoom, great price.

Summary: Great camera for the $$ for sure. Some reviews say that the low light performance is not good, but it has done great for us at night outside, even without a tripod. Inside it performs great as well. The zoom is amazing and the image stabilization works well. The battery life has been great so far. The only down side that we have found is extremely minor, and that is that it doesn't have an orientation sensor for rotating the images automaticly.
Summary: Everything is new, came inside a white box, all accessories were included. The camera goes beyond my expectations it has an incredible body, perfect grip (better than Canon) and the lens its superb. In general its a point and shooter with some advances features like manual settings but dont expect a dslr. Pictures are great, nice color and balance in general.
Excerpt: We bought this as a Christmas present last year, primarily for the zoom, and used almost exclusively for holidays. Day 2 of our holiday last month, it wouldn't recharge despite having done so before we left. We bought a separate charger, to no avail. I don't want this camera which I can't trust. I have had Minolta, Olympus, Canon and my trusty Panasonic without problems. Don't ever buy a Nikon 510.
