Excerpt: Fantatic camera nice low loght performance , but recently the auto focus died on mine after only 4 months of use. The rechargable battery is handy and the swival lcd screen i neat. i could never get the gps to work however?
Summary: This camera is no longer sold on NewEgg so I just wasted 5 minutes of my life !!!!!
Pros: Cost I guess...not bad for a lot of features. Zoom is works good as long as you have a tri-pod. Color accuracy is not great but not to bad either. I guess for the price ...less than $400 it's a good "starter" camera.
Cons: Color accuracy is not spectacular .... shutter speeds not great ! GPS has no value except wasting battery...and on that note....poor battery life. Smaller more accurate cameras out there.... maybe not with the zoom lens but again... unless your a pro with lenses and know PHOTOGRAPHY.... this came...
Summary: Got a lot of good reviews for the in between P&S and DSLR .... plus got a lot of reviews that its slow and has low battery life and other low cam quality features ! Spent $500 for cam and whole kit ( tri pods...case...lens cleaner...bag... battery ..
Pros: Will this Camera do well between hi-end point & shoot & SLR or did I waste money on a overpriced P&S with a decent zoom lens ?
Cons: Gonna receive it today.... am I going to send it back with all the SD cards and tri pods ?
Summary: I think the camera is great but the bundle - not so much. The camera pouch is too small to hold anything more than the camera and the "large" tripod is a joke. A max height of fifty (50) inches is not very helpful.
Excerpt: I have been using the Nikon P510 daily for about 6 months. There are a few things I really like about the camera, quite a few things I don't like (or could certainly be better), and a few things that should be included.
Summary: I purchased this camera in the red color for my wife. She fell in love with the color and loved the way the camera felt in her hands. We also felt the image quality of the pics were good for the most part, although they sometimes seemed to be lacking a bit in contrast.
Excerpt: The camera is just ok. Nothing special. You can have this camera without have to carry your slr. And of course you buy this camera for the great zoom. Problems: Basically don't have gps!................. You can read the problems in the forum....
Summary: I buy a camera every year as the pixels and zoom improve. This is my second Nikon. Likes: Great zoom. Many functions in a compact camera. Pictures quality is good. but not great. Dislikes: It feels like it is made from very cheap material, scratches easily.
Summary: I wanted a good carry around camera that was smaller than my D7000. I had high hopes for the P510, but it let me down in a big way. It takes really vivid landscape pics. The camera takes lowlight landscape pics that rival my D7000. No kidding. The big flaw is focus time.
Summary: I have had the Nikon P510 for a week now and have been comparing it to a Panasonic FZ150 that I am also testing. The P510 is a very nice looking camera that has a quality look and feel. It has a nice textured rubberized material on the hand grip and it has a solid feel. The camera powers on quickly.
