Gain new perspectives

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

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

I don't understand how the p520 has a SMALLER effective digital zoom than the p500. p520 = 42x. p500 = 36x. Yet the zoom on the 520 is effectively 2000m, but on the 500 it's 3240mm - a WHOPPING difference.

I 'upgraded'. WHOOPS. Please explain.

MOST ANNOYED!!!!!!!! And thinking about returning the p520.

Answer: 
P500 has 4x digital while P520 has 2x digital zoom. The P520 has better optical zoom 1000mm vs 810mm on the P500.
Remember at 4x digital zoom you are losing about 70 percent of your pixel count. Image quality suffers quite a bit.

Answer: 
The EN-EL5 battery is the only battery NIKON makes for the P520. Using any other battery could damage the camera. If you would like to use a continuous power source, NIKON recommends the EH-62A AC ADAPTER. The AC adapter is in the link below.

I get a failure stating the above sometimes even when I have not taken a picture. I have a 32GB scan disk card in camera. To get the error to go away I have to remove battery and reinsert it. Very annoying. It can go from happening twice in 10 minutes t not happening for an hour. Bought camera to take on vacation and this is a pain. Any advice ? This is the second P520 that I have bought. First one randomly turned off when you used the zoom/wide angle button.

Answer: 
It is not an error message. it is the message you get when your memory card it still writing the information from the camera. You could damage your camera or corrupt the card by removing the battery while it is in that state. The write speed of a memory card is more important then the size when it comes to recording videos or taking pictures especially if you wish to take multiple shots without having to wait very long. An 8GB sandisk extreme pro cost the same as an 64GB sandisk standard and most would go for the bigger size thinking it better but the truth is that the 8GB is 10 times faster. The slower the write speed of the card, the longer you will have to wait for the files to be recorded. You need to take into consideration the speed of the SD card and the size of the files being transferred.

For example if we booth have the same camera and using the same settings but you have a 64gb standard card with a write speed of 5mb/s in your camera while i have an 8gb Extreme pro card in my camera with a write speed of 95mb/s , and the size of a single image shot with the cameras is 20mb, I would be able to record about 4 images in 1 second while it will you take you 4 seconds to record a single image, and if we both shoot continuously for 1 minute, I would have 240 images recorded to my camera while you would have only 15.

Answer: 
A 16GB memory card can hold about 1hour 40minutes of video recorded at 1920 X 1080/30p.
Movie length varies with movie quality selected, image composition and subject motion.

The maximum movie recording time(maximum movie length for a single movie)is 4GB or 29 minutes, even when there is sufficient free space on the memory card.

Answer: 
Unfortunately NIKON does not include a carrying case with the P520 and therefore is it difficult to assist without knowing the case that you have. If this is a third party case that was issued to you by the dealer, we suggest you contact the dealer for assistance.

Answer: 
To freeze the motion of an object you will need to use a fast shutter speed. The easiest way to do this is to choose the Sports Scene Mode which was created to capture action shots. You can also do this by shooting in a Continuous Shooting Mode or by manually selecting a shutter speed in "S" or "M" Shooting Modes.

To capture the blur created by motion you would use a slow shutter speed. For example, the Fireworks scene mode leaves the shutter open for 4 seconds in order to capture the movement of the fireworks accross the night sky. Slow shutter speeds can also be selected when shooting in "S" or "M" modes.

See this article from the Learn & Explore section of Nikon USA for more information on Capturing or Freezing Motion in Photos:
http://www.nikonusa.com/en/Learn-An...

Detailed information on choosing a Scene Mode can be found starting on page 36 of the P520 Manual. See page 34 of the P520 Manual for info on Continuous Shooting. Instructions on shooting in "S" or "M" mode, as well as info on how shutter speeds impact the appearance of motion, start on page 49 of the P520 Manual.

Answer: 
When the battery charging is complete, the charge lamp flashing slowly in green stops and is turned off. Is seem the battery is fully charge and you do not need to charge it any further. Unplug the charger or any cables from camera ports and press the power button on the top of the camera for about 1 second to turn the camera on. The camera cannot be used while it is connect to the EH-69EH-69P AC Adapter Charger or a computer.

Answer: 
Use the Zoom control switch which is located around the power button to zoom the lens in and Out. I hope your are not expecting it to say 42x on the screen. 42x simply means 180 is about forty-two times 4.3. Its just the focal length of the the lens. The lens zoom from 4.3mm to 180mm.

Answer: 
To record in fast motion on the P520, go to Movie Options in the shooting menu and choose HS 1080/0.5x. At this setting movies are recorded at half the rate of normal speed and will therefore play back at twice normal speed.

See page 51 of the Reference section of the P520 manual for more information on recording movies in slow or fast motion on the P520. A copy of the P520 manual can be found here: https://support.nikonusa.com/app/an...

What is the write speed the P520 is capable of. Is it able to take advantage of a 90MB write speed of a card or is it limited to a slower speed.

best wildlife settings with my P520

I got this camera a few weeks ago and so far have had good success with landscapes and macro, but I am on a learning curve for wildlife photos. I am not talking about cheetah's running at 30mph, but a moose walking through a pond, or a bird sitting on a tree, or maybe a coyote jogging along....some movement, but not crazy fast stuff. I am pretty new to all the manual features, and I am mostly trying Aperture priority but I am wondering what is generally the best focusing and metering settings. I know I want the lowest ISO possible, and I am happy to try one of the continuous shooting options but I also want the largest images possible. Should I use spot metering? I am trying all the different focusing options but I want to find the best one for most slow wildlife shots. My focal length will depend on the distance, and I assume I want the largest aperture available, but I am looking for more guidance as my shots have been only marginally successful in practice!

Answer: 
Hi, we have a few articles in our Learn & Explore library about wildlife photography. There is really not a specific settings to use when shooting wildlife. It's all about the lighting, scene, trial & error etc. Even the best professional photographer does not always get it right. The more you practice the better you will become.

I have this great new camera, and love the zooming capabilities. But I wanted to be able to take really close up photos of flowers and can never get it to focus. What am I doing wrong?

Answer: 
Nikon announced P520 1/29/13, so no it is not an old model. It is a fixed lens camera and you cannot change the lens.
