Great All Around Camera for the Price,
This review is from: Nikon COOLPIX P510 16.1 MP CMOS Digital Camera with 42x Zoom NIKKOR ED Glass Lens and GPS Record Location (Red) (Electronics)
First of all, I have to say that I bought the red camera, and I love the color! I researched DSLR's and other similar ultra zoom cameras, and I am happy with my choice of the Nikon P510. It is fairly easy to operate, and I've been practicing taking a lot of indoor/outdoor/flash/close-up and low-light photos. I have not tried the GPS yet, so I can't rate that. I will say, however, that the battery does not hold a long charge. That being said, I ordered the kit including 2 extra batteries, AC/DC charge, screen protector, and cleaning cloth for $19.95. I bought a small Lowepro bag that is convenient for travel. The viewfinder is OK. It is nice to have the option of using one, but I generally take photos from the LCD screen. And what can I say about the zoom? It's awesome!
I think that for the price, you are getting a lot of camera....no need to lug around extra lenses and a large bag to carry your equipment. It is convenient and will provide excellent photos with many options.
