I am an avid camera collector and Nikon fan, taking classes in high school and college (and the last thing I needed was yet another camera) but I was unhappy with my options. My DSLR took fantastic pictures but was too heavy to carry around for everyday use and my basic point and shoot was the perfect pocket size, but took less than decent pictures. I was hoping a bridge camera would solve all of my problems.
Pros so far:
- Camera powers on very quickly.
- Its surprisingly light and compact without sacrificing amazing picture quality.
- The camera body has a nice grip on it so it's easy to hold on to and stays in your hand.
- The pop out screen makes it oh so easy to see pictures you're taking at weird angles.
- Easy to use (especially for those people who aren't comfortable with adjusting ISO and shutter speed manually - but can be adjusted for those who are)
- Has tons of settings (hard to say forsure but seems like it performs well in low light situations)
- The zoom is INCREDIBLE (I can take a picture of a lego mini figure from 20 feet away with better clarity and image quality than I could right in front of the object with my point and shoot)
The downsides I have noticed so far:
-Video is alright, when I blow it up on my computer it doesn't look to be true HD quality but it's good. Also the zoom on the video can be heard no matter what which is a little annoying.
-The zoom on the actual camera is very slow if you're extending it the full range and it takes a few seconds to focus.
- Battery life is not that good - would definitely recommend getting a back up!
Overall I LOVE this camera. Sure you may find a Canon or Olympus that has slightly better reviews in one feature or another, but let's be real, no camera has it all. However, in my opinion so far this comes pretty close!
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've heard concerns about Nikon's battery life, but so far I've had tons of pictures and video off a single charge.
The picture quality looks terrific.
The zoom is amazing.
I usually don't care as much about these things, but the red color is great.
I doubt I'll ever use the GPS feature. It is usually pretty obvious where I am when taking pictures.
I highly recommend these extras. For $500 total you get an nice bundle.
1. The 2 extra batteries plus the wall charger will be very handy -- 2 Pack Battery And Charger Kit For Nikon P100 P500 P510 Digital Camera Includes 2 Extended (1100 Mah) Replacement Nikon EN-EL5 Batteries + AC/DC Rapid Charger + LCD Screen Protectors + ButterflyPhoto MicroFiber Cleaning Cloth $19.95
2. This bag is the perfect size for the camera, extra batteries and charger -- Case Logic DCB-304 High/Fixed Zoom Camera Case (Black) $15.28
3. I'd get two memory cards. They have more space than you'll probably ever use. Each holds over 3,400 pictures, but if you take videos you'll have plenty of room and of course you want a backup. -- Transcend 16 GB SDHC Class 10 Flash Memory Card TS16GSDHC10E $14.98
I have been taking pictures of song birds, from inside a glassed in sun room hand held at 42X zoom, effectively with a 1000 mm lens. I recently took a wonderful picture of a male Bluebird looking out the door of a birdhouse which is 75 feet away and on the other side of the thermal pane windows. Yes, I did initially have a few problems focusing at 42X zoom. But then I found that the camera has 4 different focus setting; "Auto", "Auto-Macro", "Auto-Distance", and "Manual" (my names for the modes not their names). Now with "Auto-Distance" focus mode I only occasionally have focus problems when there is a lot of glare on the dirty double pane windows. Frankly, it is ridiculous to attempt to take pictures through a dirty double pane window hand held at 42X, but this camera has amazed me. And the pictures are even better without the thermal windows.
I have not experienced any short batter life problem, but I have not enabled the GPS or internet or video options so maybe those would use a lot of power. But after reading some of the other reviews I purchased an external charger and a couple of spare batteries for $20.
The 400+ page CD instruction manual means that it will take a while to learn all the options and adjustments but it is well worth doing some reading.
