Coolpix P520

Rating: no rating

The Coolpix P520 boasts a 42x zoom, a tiltable high resolution 921K-dot LCD monitor and Full HD (1080p) movie recording with stereo sound.



Its 18-megapixel backlit CMOS sensor and advanced lens-shift vibration reduction ensure sharp shooting in any light, so that even at longer focal lengths, frames remain steady and subjects are pin-sharp.



One-touch access to movie mode means you can switch easily from taking stills to filming in Full HD (1080p) with stereo sound. The tiltable high resolution LCD monitor makes it easy to take shots from above or below to get a different perspective and built-in GPS records the exact location where a picture was taken as a geotag in the image data.



The camera comes in three colours: Dark silver, black and red.
