The COOLPIX P520 features a 42x zoom NIKKOR lens that takes you from wide-angle group shots to telephoto close-ups in an instant. And don't worry about a little camera shake—lens-shift Vibration Reduction helps keep the shot steady even when your hands are not.

Share your journeys on Google Earth™, Google+™, and other social media sites or with the included Nikon View NX2 software. Built-in GPS helps you navigate unfamiliar destinations, and Points of Interest (POI) show you nearby photo-ops like scenic lookouts and historic landmarks. The COOLPIX P520 is the ultimate travel companion!

Superior low-light performance

High-performance CMOS image sensor lets you shoot without a flash

Imagine being able to shoot without a flash at weddings, concerts, parties—anywhere your flash normally fires. You won't have to interrupt a moment to capture it, and your photos and HD videos will look more natural and true to your memory. The COOLPIX P520 performs so well in low light situations that, in most cases, using the flash is optional. Of course, when the lighting is extremely poor and you need a flash, it'll be there.

Record superior videos

If you want a compact camera that shoots stunning Full HD videos, the COOLPIX P520 delivers. 1080p Full HD means exceptional video quality.

Don't sweat a little camera shake

Lens-shift Vibration Reduction helps keep the shot steady, even if your hands are not. Say goodbye to blurry photos, shaky videos and tripods.

Take control of your vision

When you want to take control of exposure, the COOLPIX P520 is ready. Select from P/S/A/M exposure modes and the creative options will seem endless.

Gain new perspectives

Use the 3.2-inch ultra-high-resolution (921,000 dot) Vari-angle LCD monitor to capture some really unconventional angles.

Freeze action in its tracks

When the action speeds up, simply hold the shutter button and fire off up to 7 continuous shots per second. Catch views you may not have seen before in your photos.

COOLPIX P520 4.5 5 80 80
Feel, Weight Balance Excellent feel with great balance and I feel in full control of the camera for any shot September 26, 2014
Great bridge camera. I originally owned to Nikon film cameras in the early 80's, Took really good photos on horseback in Wyoming, Colorado, and Big Bend NP. Had a lot of compliments on my slides. Last fall, I decided I wanted to get back into photography as a serious amateur, and bought a Nikon Coolpix L820 which was very good but wanted more manual control on photos. So in Mary 2014 bought a Nikon Coolpix P520 and gave the L820 to my wife. P520 is a GREAT camera, especially for the price. Have had great compliments on my photos. This camera can do so much, it's hard to believe that it is a bridge camera. Last week I bought a second P520 to use as a back up and to have each one programmed for different situations. These cameras will do so much more than my old Nikon film cameras that had about a half dozen lenses. I do wish that Nikon made a filter attachment capability and lens hood for these cameras. Surely there is a way. Otherwise it is a GREAT camera, and why I have ended up with two of that model. August 4, 2014
My Nikon Camera I am totally in love with my camera i take it everywhere June 4, 2014
Newbie The pictures I take and the rave reviews I get I feel a little guilty because it is the camera . I am learning and trying different settings . Absolutely fantastic . I have taken over 4000 pictures since December and I take the camera with me everywhere . Great all around May 5, 2014
LOVE THIS CAMERA!! I have always wanted a Nikon as far back as I can remember, and I finally got the chance to own one. I figured I would work my way up through the cameras. Starting with the COOLPIX P520, and it was a great decision!! I love this camera, it has amazing features, its very versatile, and the picture quality is great for its model! For a starter camera for me, I couldn't have asked for better! Thanks Nikon!! April 22, 2014

Answer: 
You can shoot B/W. When in effects mode push the menu button, scroll down to special effects, push ok, then high contrast monochrome then push ok. you can also choose sepia and selective color on this menu.
In the scene mode you can also shoot in B/W push menu then scroll down to B/W copy then ok.
In P mode scroll to picture control push ok. then monochrome. I like to keep a mode in B/W one in sepia that way it is easy to switch at a moments notice. Happy shooting!

Since we're going an a vacation soon, I decided to go crazy and get a class 10 64GB SanDisk SDXC card for the P520. Cameras today estimate how many photos you can take with the remaining capacity of the card. With the brand new card installed, the P520 says I have 9999 photos left. Is this a realistic number, or the limit of the camera's ability to estimate?

Also, I did not format the card in the camera, figuring the P520 would tell me to do so. The card seems to be working just fine without formatting for the P520. I'm not worried about this, as I have used the camera to re-format the card a couple times since then, just to get rid of bad test shots. I just thought this was interesting.

Answer: 
the image quality does not influences in pictures of subjects in motion, iF you want to freeze the action the Speed must be "fast", and the aperture could be f/3.5, f/4, .... Speed value could help (and the Automatic Mode or Program Mode). I could recommend: play with the kids, play with the camera blur. Freezing the image could make your photos look some "frozen" - iF you let some areas in blur motion, as natural as is, you will find nice Action Photos, some hands moving fast, bicycle kid with feet in "some blur motion effect" (just a little blur don't abuse ) are excellent, try Speed and Aperture values, with or without flash (whenever its needed iF you practice),

View NX 2 does have a movie editor for clips that are taken with the Nikon COOLPIX P520, however with this software a DVD cannot be created with the software. This requires third party software. Nikon cannot offer support or advice on third party products. You will need to get in contact with the manufacturer of the third party equipment for compatibility information with our products.

Answer: 
I find this struchture P520 easy to clean, I use micro-fiber. There are in market soft and "spongie" microfibers, and a very soft brush to dust in the body. As posted by Nikon: avoid fingers but sometimes the lens gets fingers or drops or contamination, but micro-fiber should do the cleaning work , some special liquids to clean lenses or sunglasses can be used but take so much care and read instructions and specifications.

Answer: 
When cleaning the COOLPIX P520, avoid touching glass parts with your fingers. Remove dust or lint with a blower (typically a small device with a rubber bulb attached to one end that is pumped to produce a stream of air out the other end). To remove fingerprints, oily substances, or other stains that cannot be removed with a blower, carefully wipe the lens with a dry soft cloth or eyewear cleaning cloth, using a spiral motion that starts at the center of the lens and working toward the edges. Do not wipe the lens forcibly or with a hard material. Failure to observe this precaution could result in damage or trouble. If this fails, clean the lens using a cloth lightly dampened with commercial lens cleaner. For more information on cleaning and caring for your COOLPIX P520, please see page 6 in the technical notes of the reference manual: https://support.nikonusa.com/app/an...

I looked in the accessories and it didn't mention it... but I find it strange that a camera would come without a manual.

Answer: 
The list of tested and approved memory cards for the P520 can be found on page 21 of the user manual. Link below. The best would be Sandisk or Lexar Class 10 UHS-1 memory cards.

Answer: 
No, the vari angle display was design in a way that it cannot rotate continuously in one direction. It cannot rotate any further after a full 360 degrees turn, and has to be rotated back in the opposite direction.
