  • Summary: The Nikon COOLPIX P520 is a 42x superzoom with an 18.1 Megapixel sensor. It supercedes the 16 Megapixel COOLPIX P510, which is still available. With some exceptions, notably Panasonic, manufacturers tend to update super-zoom lenses every couple of generations and so the COOLPIX P520 and the earlier...

  • Summary: The Nikon Coolpix P520 is going to offer a 42X optical zoom lens with a maximum telephoto setting of 1000mm. This is a very impressive feature that you aren't going to find on a lot of cameras.

Nikon COOLPIX P520: Review

Review guidelines
21 May 2013
  • Summary: Among compact cameras, the Nikon COOLPIX P520 is definitely a cut across the others, because it is indeed a bridge, which it presents to the command dial hand and the handle of a typical reflex.
  • Pros: Rotatable display with very high resolution, continuous shooting at high speed, Wi-Fi compatibility, high optical zoom, AF subject tracking, resolution and quality sensor, Full HD movie, 3D shooting mode, GPS, full manual mode.
  • Cons: Internal Memory.

Nikon Coolpix P520 review

Pocket Lint
24 May 2013
  • Conclusion: All things considered and the P520 is, in general, a decent superzoom camera. We like the small size, big zoom range, image stabilisation and new vari-angle screen - but even all that's just not enough to see it prevail as a class leader.
  • Pros: Affordable compared to rivals, small body but big and varied zoom range, image stabilisation, full vari-angle LCD, low ISO shots bright and colourful
  • Cons: Tricky to shoot at 1000mm because of feature restraints, autofocus at longer focal lengths is a little slow, no raw, image quality not pushing forward

  • Summary: The Nikon Coolpix P520 is a very modest update of last year's P510 model, principally adding a more flexible LCD screen and slightly more megapixels, thankfully with no deterioation in image quality.

17 April 2013
  • Summary: 42x optical zoom bridge camera put to the test
  • Pros: 42x zoom, Articulating, high-res screen, Full manual control, The huge zoom range makes this a great bridge camera for the travelling photographer. Autofocusing, including macro focusing, is accurate, making it possible to photograph subjects from flowers to far-away wildlife well.
  • Cons: No raw capture, Limited EVF, No quick menu, With no raw capture available, flexibility in post-processing is limited, especially when it comes to removing those filters that seemed like a good idea at the time.

  • Excerpt: Le Nikon P520 est un bridge à zoom extrême avec une plage de 24-1000 mm. Le capteur étant un CMOS de 1/2,3 pouces - de 18 MP toutefois, ce qui est un peu... beaucoup comme on dit - la question étant le résultat produit par ce zoom.
  • Pros: Polyvalence du zoom, GPS (et Wifi en option), Ecran orientable
  • Cons: Pas de Raw, Finition un peu légère

  • Summary: Nikon COOLPIX P520 – компактная суперзум-камера с богатой функциональностью в корпусе «псевдозеркального» дизайна. Матрица 18 Мп формата 1/2.3” с обратной засветкой, оптическая стабилизация изображения, объектив с зумом 42х (24-1000 экв.мм) и светосилой F/3.0-5.9, диапазон ISO 80-6400, режимы PASM,...
  • Pros: Огромная кратность зума 42х., Наличие в диапазоне зума широкого угла – от 24 экв.мм., Эффективно работающая оптическая стабилизация изображения., Поворотный в двух плоскостях монитор высокого разрешения 921000 точек., Уникальный орган управления – рычажок на оправе объектива (для ручной фокусиров...
  • Cons: Невысокая светосила объектива (что неудивительно при такой кратности зума)., Узкий диапазон регулировки диафрагмы., Нет поддержки формата RAW., Нет разъема для установки внешней вспышки., Даже при невысоких ISO на изображении выражены артефакты шумоподавления., Низкое быстродействие во многих реж...
