5.0 out of 5 stars Best all-around camera today!, May 8, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
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)
Length:: 0:56 Mins

I have put together a slide show on the capabilities of the P510. It can be a telescope, as well as a macro camera as you can see in the video. By far the most versatile camera I have ever owned. It is an upgrade to my Nikon P90, and it is amazing.

The pictures of the moon and Venus were done on a tripod, but can you think of another point and shoot camera that can see Venus in its crescent phase? Incredible. And no sacrifice in macro mode as well. I have taken action shots in soccer from across the field with no vibration issues. I can't say enough about this camera! You can use it in action situations, for wildlife at a distance as well as amateur astronomy.

Please note that windows moviemaker reduced resolution to 640x480 on the video - use it to gauge its versatility, not its resolution. The pictures are very sharp!

I have the L120, and I've loved it. But....I want this one. Thanks for posting the slide show, even though it just upped the want.
I've take picture's of dandelion's and the moon much the same as yours and they're beautiful, but there is no doubt there's a clarity to the P510.

I got the same picture of the moon this morning and I am so amazed! Just love it! My husband couldn't believe it either. It's a keeper:)

Thanks for this post.....this just sold me on it! I have a P90 also and love it but want to upgrade. My Nikon D5000 is much too cumbersome for me when I just want to walk around the park and take some bird and nature shots!
