I had a Nikon Coolpix L110, I loved it! But it had slammed against the back seat and the LCD screen broke. My husband got me the Coolpix P530 for Christmas and I am in love with it! Takes awesome pictures and the battery lasts me a few days. I am just now exploring different settings on it, but I am happy with the auto settings it has!

It's just Fantastic
Love It! Would recommend to anyone. And pretty sure this goes for entire Coolpix line. I run around in the woods in North West and its light and efficient. I have used it almost everyday for 8 months or so and although I have found a few areas which I need some more professional qualities' in a Camera. This will take anyone's photography to another level. If you spend time with it. Good Job Nikon you have a life long fan. I am not saying its perfect but it's very very very good.

Great Camera for a beginner
I bought this camera during the holidays. After I saw how great the pictures were I found a new hobby. For someone like myself that knows nothing about photography this camera is for you. The automatic settings will dazzle your audience. And the zoom is amazing. I had folks asking me if I used a telescope when taking pictures of the moon. Honestly all I did was zoom out and use the moon setting :)

Excellent Technical characteristics and Quality of Nikon Coolpix p530
I have bought Nikon coolpix p530 and I am very happy with this camera.
It has a lot of variable parameters, which can suite needs may be even professional photographer.
In the same time I use auto mode and the camera takes excellent quality pictures even in very hard lighting conditions (dark or too bright conditions, see specification it has very wide range of exposure parameters such shutter speed, ISO and others).
So far I almost do not use Flash, because the camera taking excellent pictures in most lighting conditions.
The camera has option to save often used settings in User's profile U on the Mode Dial.
Optical zoom x42 working excellent no matter if I am taking still images or in movie mode. Vibration compensation system VR, designed by Nikon working excellent. I checked it taking movie clip while being walking and results are excellent.
I have turned OFF digital zoom in settings, because x42 optical zoom satisfies me fully.
I have opened some pictures in Photo Now, zoomed them in and quality is excellent even with high magnification.
I have taken a movie clip and played it on my Sharp wide screen 46 inch HD TV and quality is comparable with the movie taken using professional big camera for taking movies, which cost obviously more, then ten thousand dollars.
I assume I have made excellent choice and I am very happy with my new camera Nikon Coolpix p530. Special Thanks to Nikon's designers.
