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!
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.
Beautiful Pictures, Great Low Light but Slow and Freezes Sometimes
8 February 2014
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.
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.
