COOLPIX P510 4.8 5 226 226
This Bald Eagle Photo Speaks For Itself! I bought my Coolpix 510 six months ago, and have appreciated it from day 1 - but today I really came to understand the magic of this camera! I was shoveling snow in front of my house when I heard a dramatic bird call. I looked up and saw a large bird 200 feet away. With my naked eye I wasn't sure what bird species it was - but I ran into the house, grabbed my camera, and just used the auto mode and zoom lever adjustment to take this shot! (And BTW it looks even better at the full size that exceeds your upload limit.) December 14, 2013
Excellent product!!! Okay, I'll start with this: I am like, a total Nikon geek. I wouldn't have it any other way! I've got the mug that looks like a Nikkor camera lens, even. And you know what? It all started with this camera. I used a Canon Powershot before, and thought it was nice... until I purchased my first Nikon. I love the experience, the feel in my hand, the comfortable weight, and the LONG zoom. The Coolpix P510 has a stupendous image quality, and takes incredibly sharp images. Mainly, I like to photograph wildlife and nature, which often requires a strong lens, which this camera has. The image quality is excellent even at full zoom, and the auto-focus is very fast and exceedingly accurate. (Especially when compared to that ol' Powershot.) It has really great VR, too. December 11, 2013
Awesome camera for street photography Great all around point and shoot camera, I love it. The Coolpix P510 with its long reach, is perfect for all basic photography. It's not good for sports like the excellent Nikon DSLR are but it is great for everything else. I think that it takes better movies then a DSLR, it's just a really good all around camera. December 9, 2013
Sensational Compact Camera We own more than a half dozen digital cameras from point-n-shoot to professional SLR’s. Not only is this my favorite among our collection of Nikon cameras, it’s my overall favorite. First of all, for a compact camera it packs a wallop. The 42x zoom is simply amazing, and with the outstanding picture quality, it’s the perfect camera for the outdoorsmen on the go. The full HD video, though not in the same class as my dedicated video cameras, the quality is simply amazing for its size and cost. I’ve only had the camera for month, so I haven’t gotten around to using all of its features. But among the many that I have tried, the camera has performed flawlessly. I’ll continue to use my Professional SLR cameras to impress my clients, but the P510 is my new go-to camera. December 5, 2013
First rate bridge camera! I've owned this P510 for several months now, and have taken, literally, thousands of images with it. The results are always consistently first rate, and I have nothing but good things to say about it. I have DSLR's and professional equipment as well, but don't always want to carry a load of lenses and the like when traveling and shooting personal photos. This is the perfect camera for those times, and I highly recommend it. Image quality is outstanding. November 25, 2013

Answer: 
You actually CAN use filters for this camera without any adapters, but they require some work.
As I observed standard 52mm filters have too high threads to put them on P510. You can file them down to fit P510 "threads". Those filters require quite some work and precision to make sure they are filed down the same height all around. You then can screw filed filter into camera quite nice.

Answer: 
Looks to me like a flat piece of glass over the lens—UV or clear glass. Unless you're looking for special effects like polarizing, you don't need a protective filter. It's already there.

Answer: 
I actually own this model Nikon, and there are no filters available for it. It does not take filters at all. There may be some third market adapter that claims to work with the P510 but there is none made by Nikon and I would not trust them to work with the camera.

Answer: 
Those are not threads. They are there just to hold the lens cap. There are some adapters out there however they are either bulky or junk. I myself am waiting for something decent. It seems as though I am not alone on this, just google p510 filter adapter. Hey Nikon how about stepping up with an adapter?

Manual Focus not quite up to snuff

Was this helpful?helpful8unhelpful2
The 'manual' focus still relies on the camera itself and not the operator on this model. Since I can turn off the T/W function on the left side of the lense/housing, has any thought been given to making that an ACTUAL manual focus capability?

That really shouldn't take more than a firmware upgrade to allow that rocker switch to MANUALLY control the lense motor itself resulting in true manual focus (which is the only thing this camera really seems to be lacking).

Answer: 
The manual focus on the P510 works quite well. I discussed this with Nikon. Here are the steps to remember:

1. Set focus to MF using the down button of the rotary multi selector.
2. Now you see the MF focus scale on the right. Use the Up/Down buttons ie top/bottom of the selctor to change the focus
3. If you don't take a shot, although you are still in MF mode as shown top left on screen, as soon as the MF scale goes away, you have to reenable it. It would make sense that when you press the shutter half-way that the scale reappears, but it does NOT. Instead, you need to press the OK in the center and the MF distance scale on right reappears.
4. NOTE: using the up/down buttons result in big increments in focus - this is not ideal. BUT, there is a 2nd method that results in finer focus increments. If you assign the side zoom control to Focus, you can use it instead of the buttons. The side control, as for the zoom, uses smaller increments in focus as well as zoom, so much finer jumps than the up/down buttons
5. VIDEO. Manual focus works during video recording. I can confirm that during video recording, (set focus to Manual Focus. and assign side zoom control to focus instead of zoom before shooting video), you can use the standard zoom control to smooth zoom while at the same time using the side zoom control to smooth focus in or out. This gives you fully manual focus / zoom while shooting video, and much better than counting on autofocus to keep moving subjects in focus during video recording (which autofocus doesn't do very well in many situations).

Answer: 
I think I figured it out. You can only use Manaul focus if you assign the side T/W key to Manual Focus (options) then you must use one of the manual mode settings, touch the focus button (flower) and choose the now-enabled MF option at the bottom. To enable the MF bar on the screen and the toggle of the side T/W key, you have to first hit the focus (flower) button and choose MF. It's not that easy, but on a tripod, it's quite effective, even at FULL zoom! Minor issue on DARK subjects, which I'm trying to figure out. The camera will 'lighten' and zoom in on a subject when you choose MF #manual focus#. I'm trying to figure out a way to up that lightening feature as in extremely dark subjects, there's nothing to see and therefore nothing to fix with MF. But manual focus does work. The harder part is getting it exact, but since you can immediately preview the photo, it's fine! Hope that helps. I was feeling the same was as you until I figured it out. Now I LOVE the zoom feature!

Answer: 
After reading a 3rd party book on this camera, there is indeed a "manual focus" capability that utilizes the W/T option on the left of the housing, but it is POORLY EXECUTED at best.

To exercise this option, you must go into the menu and enable the W/T for focus, then put the camera into a MF mode, THEN push down on the round rocker like switch/control towards the flower, THEN go down until you reach MF,...THEN you can use the W/T, but it is HYPER-SENSITIVE. Far too touchy. Once you've taken this ONE picture, you are bumped out of MF and have to reselect it for each consecutive shot..

Only with a third party manual was this explained. You may also run into issues with not being able to use the flash. Certain features and modes automatically disable the flash, and if you aren't extremely knowledgeable on this camera, you may get frustrated trying to figure out which setting is causing your flash to not work (Night landscape will disable flash, as will almost all burst or continuous modes of exposure).

I do not recommend this camera and would take it back in a heart beat if I could.

Answer: 
Perhaps we are at cross purposes in our definitions but when I'm using the manual mode I can control the lens moving in and out of focus, just as if I had a manual focus ring on a lens. There is no reliance on the camera doing the focusing its entirely under my control.
Perhaps you could give a little more detail on what is happening when you use the zoom control and compare it with what you expect to happen.
Thanks

Answer: 
With respect to the last answer, if you follow the manual and set the zoom to control the manual focus, all you are really doing is shifting that normal 'half depress'. It's actually kind of a joke. By merely touching the T/W on the side in that mode (not holding mind you, but touching) I saw the lense move around a little exactly as if it was trying to autofocus, I had no control over the focal point whatsoever.

A TRUE manual focus is needed, not something that is merely a port over of another buttons functionality. So far, this is a mediocre camera that I am coming to regret purchasing as it's not anywhere near as useful as an SLR, but doesn't have the quick-out of the box usability of a point and shoot. There's no real category for this device, it's not for professionals, and it's not for enthusiasts or amateurs.

I was incorrect. There is manual focus on the P510 but it only appears on the menu when you are in the P,S,A,M selection. According to the reference section of the manual, page 2, you can set the side zoom button to control manual focus.

Answer: 
To add to Tom's comment it would appear that the Manual Focus has been removed from the feature set. In the full manual there are details on how to use it but, as Tom noted, the feature does not appear on the 'in-camera' menu.
If Nikon staff stop by this forum it would be interesting to hear if this feature is going to be reinstated at some future date.

Answer: 
The P510 does not have any type of manual focus available. There is a manual setting where you can select the aperture and lens speed, but you cannot manually focus the camera at all.

When I first read through the complete manual, I mistakenly thought you could also focus manually with the command dial set to M, but upon re-reading and trying the camera myself, I discovered that I was mistaken and there is no option for focusing manually.

Answer: 
I have made some pretty impressive astrophotographs with the P510, but find the 4 sec/ISO 400 limitation frustrating. My ability to track stars is not very advanced, but even piggy-backed to a simple clock drive, I could utilize 1-2 minutes without significant star trails.

The image of M-42 in Orion was shot at ISO 400 / 4 seconds, then contrast and brightness enhanced to the limits of the image.

Images of the Moon, and of Jupiter's moons are easy and satisfying. Saturn was just lucky.

I had an older Coolpix 5700 that was basically the same camera shape and size, I was actually able to purchase an extension tube type kit that would allow filters to be used and it came with 4 filters, one being a polarizer...I would ask "Support and or Service if they still make this kit and if made for this camera...

Answer: 
The fact that I cannot attach a filter just killed the camera for my purpose. I was willing to compromise on the screen which cannot be moved in 3 dimensions. To bad.

Many many years ago I loved my coolpix 800 (with filters and additional lens), The coolpix 4300 was not a bad camera either, but the following coolpixes couldn't compare to the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28 (which takes filters) I had next... I was hoping this was the camera would be my replacement and my return to Nikon, but it seems not.

Answer: 
I would also love to use a polarizing filter. That's one thing that is simply not effective to add post-production. I was all set to purchase this camera until learning filters cannot be used. I will gladly wait til the next version. Seems there are MANY people who want filters judging by the number of times that question has been posted here.

So Nikon - How aboout it?

Answer: 
Panasonic FZ seies are but a few P&S cameras left on the market that puts a thread to put filters on their lenses and most are high end stuff. One of the main reasons for doing so is most of the filter effects can be added post edit and also the design reasons. Most P&S in 9xxx, 8xxx, 6xxx, 4xxx, 3xxx series are such that the lens retracts completely, flush with the body. You can't do that when you havea filter hanging off the lens. I suspect they will never put
this feature into any of their P&S cameras. Even mgazoom like P500 and L120, which are similar to Panasonic FZ series do not have them. But lacking a filter thread should not be a deal-breaker for whether you choose to buy Nikon or not.

Of course I understand that printers are different, but a little detail on the basic PDF print settings required would be extremely helpful! My goal is to print out the pages in correct order to make a booklet that is printed on standard 8-1/2 x 11 paper, landscape, and would be 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 after folding the sheets in half, or cutting and comb binding them.

Alternatively, could you offer a printed manual at additional cost for those of us who would see the value in that and pay for it?

Thank you!

Answer: 
Those are the settings for double sided printing, that's what the booklet subset is for- select both sides and printer will do the rest. If your printer doesn't due double side, pause printing and flip over paper.

Answer: 
Thanks Joe!
One thing not clear: this doesn't print on both sides of the paper, right? So, would I need to print just "front side only" and then turn over and run through again for the back side? Probably reverse order?
