Nikon COOLPIX P510 Reviews

Ephotozine reviews the Nikon COOLPIX P510 and writes;
“The P510 takes images which are well exposed with very pleasing colour reproduction. Detail is good throughout the images, whether shooting wide or with the optical zoom, except in the corners where there is a hint of softening. With a minimum focusing distance of just 1cm the camera takes superb macro pictures.”
Rating: ★★★★½

Digitalcamerareview reviews the Nikon COOLPIX P510 and writes;
“I really liked the P510 – a DSLR shooter would need a camera bag full of very expensive lenses to cover the same range as that 42x zoom.. The Nikon Coolpix P510 would be an almost ideal choice for an aspiring photographer on a budget, and a very good choice for travelers who want a tough, easy to use digicam with lots of reach.”
Rating: ★★★★½

CNET reviews the Nikon COOLPIX P510 and writes;
“I’m still not sure there’s a good reason to have a 42x zoom lens on a compact camera. But, regardless, the Nikon Coopix P510 is overall a very good full-size megazoom even if you never use the full zoom range. And, actually, it’s probably better if you don’t.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

Digitalversus reviews the Nikon COOLPIX P510 and writes;
“The video mode records 1080p HD footage at 30 fps with a decent 20 Mbps bitrate. Video images are quite contrasted and could be a bit more precise, but, on the whole, they’re still above average.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

WDC reviews the Nikon COOLPIX P510 and writes;
“Lens flare is evident in harsh lighting conditions, and can result in softening of fine detail at the tele end of the zoom. Having said that, the lens offers a pleasing level of sharpness right up to the corners of the frame.”
Rating: ★★★★½

Pocket-lint reviews the Nikon COOLPIX P510 and writes;
“The camera can shoot from ISO 100-3200, and there’s a “Hi1″ (ISO 6400 equivalent) setting also available. Select “auto (ISO)” and the P510 automatically caps the top ISO setting to 800 in order to preserve better, more detailed images.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Photographyblog reviews the Nikon COOLPIX P510 and writes;
“The P510′s overall image quality is pleasing enough in good light, but simply not as good as its rivals as you move up the ISO range.”
Rating: ★★★★½

Technobuffalo reviews the Nikon COOLPIX P510 and writes;
“The Nikon Coolpix P510 can capture HD videos in a variety of resolutions: 1080P 30fps, 720P 60fps, 720P 30fps, iFrame, VGA and 120fps High-Speed. Bright light quality was impressive, but low light sensitivity was lacking.”
rating: N/A

Digitalcamerainfo reviews the Nikon COOLPIX P510 and writes;
“The decision to retain the same body design was a good one, and the new glossy red finish is very appealing. The new Fn button is in a weird spot, but the functionality is helpful. GPS could also be a welcome addition, provided Nikon can get it working properly.”
