Summary: Worked great..for the first few months. Once I started having problems and working with the customer service team, that was when I was really disappointed in the product. Although my camera is under the one-year warranty, Nikon simply said it works fine and sent it back.
Summary: I have no issues with the camera, that is just what I needed, however, the bag, memory card holder and tripod are not as show in the picture, they are of a much lesser quality. That is why it only gets three stars.
Excerpt: I bought this camera in June last year. Since then I have been using it extensively. Here are a few few things I liked and didn´t like about the camera. Pros: 1. ZOOM. This is most probably the best feature available in this camera. The 42X lets you get really close to the subject.
Summary: The camera appeared to be in good condition and good working order. However, it had neither a carrying strap or lens cap with it. I'm not bothered by the lack of strap, but to me the lens cap is an integral part of camera protection, and I was annoyed that one did not come with the camera.
Summary: I had owned the P500 which I found just okay. It is now in the hands of my grandson. I purchased the P520 for my trip and am not happy with it. It will be returned to the shop when I get back. It is not up to Nikon quality. Having to open the viewer to disengage the viewfinder is not user friendly.
Summary: She loved it as a gift. The description says that the bundle includes 50" tripod but instead they gave us only a table top tripod stand, very disappointing. The camera is nice though, clicked many high res pictures for printing and they came out good.
