What I love about my Nikon Coolpix 510 is does everything I used to carry fifty pounds in gear for. Photo snobs wrinkle their noses at my "toy" camera. They sneer anyone who doesn't have the latest high priced status symbol. Let them. I shoot lots of situations that I used to have three cameras hanging my neck for.

A few weeks ago, I was enjoying a warm spell in the middle of the winter when I saw the moon coming up. Huge and dramatic, I was already thinking about composition, color, and something to frame the picture. I got my 510 out.

The sun was down, and the light level was getting lower. I zoomed out to a thousand millimeters, and wrapped my arms around a lamp post. The best I could do without a tripod. The image stabilizer in my Nikon was going to get a work out. I shot half a dozed frames hoping to get a couple sharp images. The shutter speed was below a fiftieth of a second. As it turned out, all the frames were sharp. This was fantastic. It was like sitting at a restaurant table alone, and then have Halley Berry ask you if she can share table with you.
