5 out of 5 stars   Nikon P520
By RKT (Texas) August 01, 2014
Review submitted for Nikon COOLPIX P520 18.1MP CMOS Digital Camera with 42x Zoom Lens (Black) Refurbished (NKCPP520KRFB)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: Takes excellent pictures. The HD movie mode is excellent also. I am amazed at how the camera companies continue to improve their products at a rapid pace. The 42x zoom takes relatively sharp and clear images even at maximum. The refurbished camera, so far, has showed no signs of any problems.
Cons: The battery doesn't last as long as the ones in my other cameras. It is imperative to carry a spare.

By jlc (New Britain, CT) June 12, 2014
Review submitted for Nikon COOLPIX P520 18.1MP CMOS Digital Camera with 42x Zoom Lens (Black) Refurbished (NKCPP520KRFB)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: Excellent camera. Well packed. Like new from factory.
Cons: Nikon's support. Had problem with lens cover popping out and they requested me to send the whole camera back. Had suggested to exchange the lens cover but they would not agree.
Other Comments: Camera does not have grooves for different lens filters. This is the reason why the cover won't stay in place. Just ordered a different generic cover from Amazon that seals over it; cheaper and less hassle.

Pros: The camera is one of the nicest I have had in my 71 years of life.
Cons: The package did not have the camera strap that the Quick Start Guide said was included. so my Nikon is hanging around my neck with a Canon camera strap. Makes a good story.

4 out of 5 stars   Awesome telephoto, great definition
By TC (Reno, Nevada) March 26, 2014
Review submitted for Nikon COOLPIX P520 18.1MP CMOS Digital Camera with 42x Zoom Lens (Black) Refurbished (NKCPP520KRFB)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: The range of this lens is incredible. 42x optical pulls in even the furthest objects with incredible clarity. Shame it doesn't take the AA like earlier models but the rechargeable may prove to be an asset.
Cons: Somewhat complex in use. It takes a while to get to know all the options. I amstill having problems with fast moving objects (the multi frame option works well). The delay in shutter to write on moving objects causes 'missing' the subject but this may just be something in the manual I haven't got to yet.
Other Comments: ave a feeling this will rapidly becme my favorite camera.

4 out of 5 stars   Fine long range zoom.
By FrankRetiree (Ellsworth, ME) March 18, 2014
Review submitted for Nikon COOLPIX P520 18.1MP CMOS Digital Camera with 42x Zoom Lens (Black) Refurbished (NKCPP520KRFB)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: Relatively compact and light, very wide zoom range up to 1000mm. Decent quality photos at lower ISO's. Built in GPS. PASM plus auto and scene and user select modes.
Cons: Relatively poor battery life. Fairly slow max apertures. Small sensor size. Apparently, inability to use filters as there is no mention of filter size or use of actual filters in manual. Does have Wi-Fi for sharing but only with the inefficient WU 1a adapter.
Other Comments: I was pleasantly surprised by general picture quality. Long tele shots are more problematic due to atmospheric haze and sharpness problems especially handheld. It makes a comfortable travel camera but make sure you have extra charged battery or two.

4 out of 5 stars   Couldn't be happier!
By HappyGram (SF North Bay Area) January 04, 2014
Review submitted for Nikon COOLPIX P520 18.1MP CMOS Digital Camera with 42x Zoom Lens (Black) Refurbished (NKCPP520KRFB)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Smooth zoom, Viewfinder, Image Quality, Comfortable Gripweight
Cons: Haven't Found Any Yet
Other Comments: I primarily take nature shots. All kinds. I have some hand control/strength issues which limit the size and weight of cameras I can use. DSLRs are just too large and heavy for me. Most point & shoots are too small and lack a good grip. The images are beautifully clean and color bright. I often print enlargements and the 18MPs allow for nice sharp 11 x 17" prints. This is proving to be a very comfortable and versatile camera for me. I am still getting used to its settings, as I am used to another camera, but I'm very happy with this camera. I'm sure I'll using it for a long time.

Verified Purchaser
Pros: A Great Little Camera
Cons:
Other Comments: really fantastic 24 to 1000mm (35mm format)lens on this camera. Great features once you learn how to use them. I did event and wedding photography for 30 years. Wish I had one back in those days.Electronic manual focusing a little complicated but works well and really sharp. I really like the fold away LCD screen to protect the surface. I have 3 Nikon DSLR cameras and use this one the most. Highly recommend.

By mainaic (Maine) September 18, 2013
Review submitted for Nikon COOLPIX P520 18.1 MP 42x Zoom Digital Camera - Red (NKCPP520R)
Pros: Zoom Quality, Quality of pictures, Easy to use, price
Cons: Sound When It Turns On
Other Comments: I bought this primarily for its size & zoom power to use while out kayaking, snowmobiling & hiking. I've taken pictures that compare well to my friends Nikon digital SLR. We was out recently taking pictures of a covered bridge, and a turtle perched up on log while kayaking. MY camera is so much easier to deal with when in a kayak because of the size and no changing of lenses and half the price!
