Get even closer to what matters
Every COOLPIX is designed around a genuine NIKKOR glass lens, the legendary optics that have helped make Nikon famous. The COOLPIX P530’s 42x optical zoom lens goes from wide-angle—great for portraits and landscapes—all the way up to telephoto—great for closeups of sports, concerts, nature and more. When you need even more reach, zoom up to 42x with optical zoom and 84x with Dynamic Fine Zoom, an enhanced digital zoom function that effectively doubles your reach.
Take control of your vision
The COOLPIX P530 takes exceptional images on its own, but when you want to take control of exposure, you can. Select from Program, Shutter Priority, Aperture Priority or Manual mode and create without limitations.
Superior low-light performance
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 will look more natural and true to your memory. The COOLPIX P530 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.
Define your style
Easily change the look and feel of your photos with Color Options. Select from Standard, Vivid, Black & White, Sepia and Cyanotype.
Lock focus on moving subjects
Kids and pets are always on the go. Fortunately, the COOLPIX P530 includes Subject Tracking, which automatically locks onto a moving subject and helps keep it in focus until you're ready to take the shot.
Share to your compatible smartphone or tablet
Connect the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter and wirelessly transfer photos to your smartphone, tablet or any compatible Wi-Fi® enabled device±. Use your compatible smartphone to instantly upload your shots to the web or email them to a friend.
