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
Really versatile high quality little camera I have a D800 as well as the P520 (and a few other cameras). The P520 is really useful for me because of the built in GPS and the vari-angle screen. I do a lot of landscape photography all over the world and the GPS is very accurate. Helps at the end of the day to be able to review everything on a map from the day. The vari-angle screen is great for low shots and unusual angles or even just to see it clearly on a sunny day. the zoom lens of course is spectacular and the quality of the image throughout the zoom range is impressive. February 8, 2014
Love my Cool Pix! I am thrilled with my new Coolpix P520. Love the ease of use, love the zoom, love the focus, love the nifty red color! January 23, 2014

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...

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.

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.

Hello,

I can't seen to turn off image review on my coolpix p520. I have found the option in the setup menu, but with the setting on or off, the image stays on the screen for about 5 seconds after I take pressed the shutter. It's a pain, as I want to get straight to the next image. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks

I am having a hard time focusing ..I spend a lot of time getting the picture in focus. Then the camera refocuses when I push the button ! I loose the shot in the couple of seconds it takes. When it is an animal , or it is out of focus because the camera has decided to focus on some thing else ! ARRRRRRRG !!!!!
And Nikon - "Art Photography" should be a choice.

Answer: 
The P520 has seven different Focus Area modes to choose from. The focus area modes cannot be change if you have the camera mode dial set to Auto. The Focus area modes can be selected from the shooting menu if you have the camera mode dial set to one of the semi Automatic or Manual exposure modes: P,S, A, M or U. Pleaser refer to Page 42-44 of the P520 user manual for information about using the focus Area modes.
https://support.nikonusa.com/app/an...

When movie Autofocus mode is set to AF-S Single AF in the camera movie settings menu, while recording a movie, press the Rotary Multi Selector left (where the ↻ symbol is) to have the camera refocus. When movie Autofocus mode is set to AF-F fulltime AF, the camera focus is adjusted automatically. See page 92-96 of the manual for information about video recording

i seriously am in love with this camera and my family has only had for maybe 1 month or less. recently my nikon p520 is not charging. I have tried with my laptop and plugging it into the wall. Usually i know it is charging when i plug it in, then a little orange light comes on the flash symbol. Is there something I am doing wrong?
