Professional photographers as well as amateurs will delight in the enhanced standard features of the Nikon Coolpix P520 18.1 MP Digital Camera with a 42x optical zoom, full 1080p HD video, as well as the newest cutting edge technological advances such as built-in GPS that make this one of the hottest new cameras on the market. 18.1 MP delivers sharp images regardless of illuminationFor weddings and other intimate occasions, when the photographer wishes to snap a discreet picture without the startling interruption of a flash, the Nikon Coolpix P250 18.1 MP delivers sharp images even in areas of low illumination. By incorporating the built-in zoom with this image sensor, it will be as if the photographer is standing only inches from the subject matter of the photograph.
Amazing 42x zoom Nikkor lensAt the heart of this camera is a genuine Nikkor glass lens. The 42x zoom lens provides a jaw-dropping equivalency of 24 mm to 1000 mm for spectacular detail that was impossible before now. Combined with the stunning effects of the 18.1 MP of this camera, photographs will be sharper than ever before.
There is also a revolutionary 3.2-inch vari-angle LCD Display that provides greater flexibility for perfect shots from various heights, with or without the 42x zoom.
Full 1080p HD video with lens-shift VRThe lens-shift VR (vibration reduction), along with a newly developed ACTIVE mode, are helpful tools that reduce the obvious blurs and lines between photographic stills, giving them a sharp image and smooth transition. This preserves the quality of HD video recording with clear, sharp images. Full 1080p HD video capability makes for great video captures without the annoying blurring that happens with other digital camera videos.
Built-in GPS can add connectivity in the remotest of locationsNature lovers who enjoy long hikes and the photographic opportunities they present will appreciate the built-in GPS feature that not only keeps the photographer on track but also provides identification information on each photo. Built-in GPS is also a valuable feature any time a photographer may be in unfamiliar territory.
All of these features are available for a comparatively low price. In fact, the Nikon Coolpix P520 is a great camera for those who wish to explore the possibilities of photographic composition before moving on to a more expensive camera.
