Surprising disappointment!

  • Summary: The extended lens is a total BLUR despite efforts to sharpen it and definitely does not come up to expectations! I immediately reach for my Panasonic DMC-TZ30 "pocket camera" for the Macro floral shots I THOUGHT the Nikon Coolpix P520 would bring superb results with! A lot of advertising hype for poor results and I'm very disappointed in the once "illustrious" Nikon name!

Decent purchase for the money

  • 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. Sadly I bought a $69 camera at Wal-Mart, and it takes much clearer and sharper photographs than my Nikon.

  • Summary: Good camera. Poor auto focus when the zoom is high and the targets are in motion, but you can use configuration to fix it manually

Not as advertised

  • 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. Yea it does have some little focus limitations but overall its really good. 2. Tilt-able display. You can click any angle using it.

Nikon P520

  • 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.

Beautiful Pictures, Great Low Light but Slow and Freezes Sometimes

  • Summary: I like taking pictures but am no expert. I am still debating whether to keep this camera. I have had it for about 3 months. The camera just seems slow - whether it is powering up or focusing. I know I should not expecting miracle with a bridge camera but I have missed some nice shots. My old Canon S3 (which is quite a few years old) does not seem to be much slower.

Disappointed

  • 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. Also the viewfinder is not very good. I have been a Nikon owner for m any years, but may move to another company, at least for the smaller cameras.
