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
Astonishing performance for the money! I've owned this camera two years; I bought the original 16MP version shortly after it came out. Nikon has increased the sensor size and made a few well-thought-out usability mods since then, but it's otherwise pretty much the same camera. I worked films in the '70s, and did my best at photographing wildlife (mostly birds) with my two-body, interchangeable viewfinder, 6-lens Minolta system. Over the years, I sold my 4x5s and 6x9 systems; and forewent wildlife photography because of the time and expense. I bought my first digital - a 3 MP Olympus - in 2003. It did well for casual photos for the web, and technology advanced, but I wasn't ready to spend $10-20K on a bulky system to get the great bird pictures people were getting. However, in 2012 I did a detailed search and discovered the new ultrazooms. I was excited, and after detailed analysis of reviews, I bought a P520, with its full range of pro/am features - and never looked back. Since I was still living in the city, I was taking a lot of architectural photos. I could stand in the green in front of Memorial Hall at Harvard, and take a closeup of the gargoyles on the tower - so crisp you could examine the solder joints! Standing out in front of Widener Library, I took a picture of a capital on the top of the massive columns - and only when I examined the photo did I discover they'd put bird netting around it, and it showed absolutely crisply; the camera had resolved a .020" detail at a distance of almost 100'. I took a picture of a Tiger Swallowtail butterfly in the forsythia bush at a distance of 7-8'; when I examined the photo, you could see the hairs on the body and the scales on the antenna! From that distance, the camera had resolved detail which, if you had the butterfly in your hand, you'd require a hand lens to see! From my porch, i got great pictures of birds in the garden. I moved into the country a few months ago, and have used it constantly to take excellent pictures of deer, wild turkeys, various birds - even a tiny vole which was darting out of a snowbank to grab seed below my bird feeder. In a shot of a chipmunk, you can actually see my house and the neighboring spruce tree reflected in the chipmunk's eye! Every now and then, the amazement of crisp 16MP hand-held shots at 1000mm strikes me again, and I find myself just staring at the camera or photos and shaking my head! This camera produces pictures which were absolutely impossible even 10 years ago, and it's a superb travel camera to cover all situations. I can also take it canoeing; it's instantly available, can shoot wildlife at extreme telephoto while hand-held, and if it goes overboard, it won't empty my bank account. I've had two problems: The first problem is with autofocus at extreme zoom. I've found conditions where it won't focus where I want it, even in multiple tries (if you release and half-press the shutter, it will try a different area combination) or narrow center focus. At that small image size in the viewfinder, electronically controlled manual focus isn't fine enough; a lens ring would work - but that's still much less trouble than I had with focusing long telephoto on my old cameras, and i'm willing to accept that pushing the envelope that much won't be perfect. In fact, i'm amazed at how accurate its focus is for small objects at great distance. The second problem is that it routinely underexposes shots on cloudy days, and gets the color balance wrong. i fix that in Photoshop, but I'd think it could do better. in better light, the pictures are excellent, so that's just another thing I take in stride; I'm still experimenting with the metering modes to see if I can find a meter/focus combination which will meet my needs better, but each mod has to be used for awhile to determine its strengths and limitations. I could also wish the shutter delay was less, or that it wouldn't do a full refocus at times, but I consider that just a factor of how little I paid for the camera; for $400 (less in constant dollars than a single 135mm lens in the '70s), I don't expect the performance of the most expensive DSLRs. And it's possible I can work out settings which will ameliorate the situation; I've probably explored only 10% of its functionality. I've shown the picture results to my family and friends; now a sister, brother and father all have one of their own, as do a couple of techie friends. The camera is not perfect, but it's amazingly smart, and does so well with so many things that I'm willing to accept some limitations; it's still unimaginably better than what we used to have to work with, at an unbelievably bargain price. I'm sure you can get better pictures with a DSLR and assorted expensive lenses, but what this camera can do for the price has, in my mind, revolutionized photography! The only reason I might replace it is the P600, which has half again the zoom! [I'm waiting for more reviews.] April 14, 2014
Astonishingly Beautiful Photographs, Quality and Ease of Use I normally use my trusty Nikon D70 and have owned many fine Nikon film cameras in the past. I bought this camera on the recommendation of a friend to use while my D70 is being cleaned and repaired. This camera is just astonishing, words fail me... ease of use, versatility and outstanding picture quality. My very first pictures were just breathtakingly beautiful...this is now my camera of choice. Wide angle or the fantastic telephoto...just astonishing. Thank you Nikon engineers and anyone connected with the production and manufacture of this high quality camera. However, I must admit that I do covet the Nikon FD...but I am totally satisfied in every way with this camera and without hesitation recommend it to anyone in need of a versatile, easy to use camera. My only wish is for a reasonably priced and ore advanced printer that can take advantage of this remarkable camera and it's potential.. March 18, 2014
This CoolPix P520 Rocks! I got this as a gift from my wife, and this CoolPix really performs. I feel that is the bridge between the non-inter-changeable lens and the Inter-changeable Lens Nikons. I really like the 42 to 1 zoom, and how one can get up-close to the action without interfering with it. The only thing one needs to pay attention concerns extreme distance photos; one must keep the camera steady, and a tripod really helps. I own two COOLPIX Digital cameras, a 3200 bought in 2005, and a S8100 in 2011, and this CoolPix builds upon its predecessors; I still use both of them at times (especially, the S8100), and I liked how Nikon allowed me to use this P520 without a large learning curve. Also, I like the fact that it has manual settings besides the automatic one, and allows me to use this camera as a DSLR. I know it will take at least two years to outgrow, and master all the abilities of this P520; this camera will prepare me for my next Nikon-a full-blown DSLR. February 27, 2014
Great Camera in a Small Package! Bought to use for Wildlife Photography specifically Waterfowl. Was amazed and the zoom qualify and the image quality at full zoom. Would recommend to anyone! February 24, 2014

I have a 2 year son always on the move and I need the 7 frames per second ability. However, when trialing at Best Buy the P520 did not store all 7 images (no SD card in camera) but only stored two of the images. I made sure that there were no images in memory before photographing.

The other thing I noticed was the auto focus did not work when shooting in P mode, A mode, and S mode. I think it should and the lighting surely was not that much of a factor as it was very bright in the store. This is important because my wife wants a point in shoot camera but needs the flexibility of the DSLR.

We are looking at bridge cameras but cannot seem to find one that meets our exact needs. Have tried looking at HH Gregg but found they do not have the power adapters needed. Best Buy had power adapters but no one to answer what I consider basic questions.

Sincerely,

A conflicted Nikon customer.

Answer: 
The P520 internal memory size is 15MB (Holds about two images). If there is a memory card in the P520, all seven shots will be recorded to the card.

Just like a D-SLR, in P,S,A or M mode, the P520 focus mode is changeable. The P520 focus mode can be change in the shooting menu.

P7700, P7100, P7000, P330, P310, P520, P510, Nikon 1 mirrorless V2, V1, J3, J2, J1,and S1 are all bridge cameras.

P520 Remote Shutter Release?

I own this camera and I was reading the description, and it states that with the wireless adapter and WMU app, you can view the image the camera sees and release the shutter remotely using a smartphone. However, when I went to download the WMU iOS app, I saw this in the app's description on iTunes:

"The view through the lens can be previewed on, and the shutter released from, the iOS device. This feature is not available with Nikon 1 or COOLPIX cameras."

So I am a bit confused on whether or not you can release the shutter remotely with the wireless adapter and the WMU app installed on an iPhone. I have considered purchasing the wireless adapter for my P520 and this would be the primary use I would have for it so I would need to know for sure. The smartphone I will be using is an Applie iPhone 5 running the latest version of iOS.

Since I take a lot of coastal pics I wish my older Cool Pix E8800 had ability to take a polarizing filter.

Answer: 
COOLPIX P520 does not have a filter thread.
On the other hand, filter can be use with COOLPIX E8800. The Nikon filters that can be attached directly to the E8800 are FF-CP11NC (Neutral Color Filter) , FF-CP11CPL( Circular Polarizer Filter), and FF-CP11ND4 (Neutral Density Filter).
The HN-CP14 lens hood for the E8800 has filter thread for attaching a standard 67mm filter. Some of the E8800 accessories may be a little hard to find because they have been discontinued.

Filters can also be use with COOLPIX A, COOLPIX P7700 Nikon DSLR's lenses, NIKON 1 series lenses, and COOLPIX AW Series (AW100 & AW110).

When I turn on the GPS and then turn off the camera, it takes a long time for the camera to turn on again. I press the power button and nothing happens. The only solution I found was to remove the battery for a few seconds and push the power button a couple of times. Is it normal?

Using a corrupted or unapproved memory card in the camera could cause issues such as slow response or freezing. Please make sure you are using an approved memory card or try a different one. The list of approved memory cards for the P520 are in the link below.

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.

Answer: 
On All Nikon cameras, no matter what language the camera menu is changed to, the word 'LAUGUAGE' will always show in english.
To change the camera Language,
Press The Menu Button> Select The Wrench >Scroll Down and Select xxxx/LANGUAGE.
Note: xxxx represents the word language in whatever language that the camera menu is in.

If the camera is in Czech/Cestina,
Press The Menu Button> Select The Wrench >Scroll Down and Select Jazyk/LANGUAGE >Scroll Down and Select English.

While its possible to change the date format on the P520, the time is always displayed in military format only. For information on changing the Time Zone and Date settings on the P520 see page 65 of the reference section of the P520 manual. The P520 manual can be downloaded from this address:

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.
