The Nikon P510 is the brand's latest superzoom camera, packing a 42x zoom

Nikon Coolpix P510

 

Nikon's been a little late to the party with its line of superzoom cameras over the last couple of years. But its latest, the Coolpix P510, crams in a huge 24-1000mm (equivalent) lens - making it the longest zoom compact on the market. That'll be...

Small body, huge zoom range, vibration reduction image stabilisation technology, extra value in features such as GPS

Electronic viewfinder outclassed by Fujifilm HS30EXR’s, tricky to shoot at 1000mm (equivalent) with great success, image quality is okay at best, autofocus at longer focal lengths is a little slow, Auto White Balance inconsistencies

Nikon has upped its game when it comes to its superzoom range. Not only does the P510 have the longest focal length to be found in a compact camera, it’s also small in body when compared to the competition.

Nikon Coolpix P510 review

 

For those after the absolute longest lens on a compact camera, meet the Nikon Coolpix P510. At roughly the same size as Nikon's last full-size megazoom, the 36x 22.5-810mm P500 , the P510 packs an "oh wow"-inducing 42x 24-1,000mm lens.

The Nikon Coolpix P510 is a fun camera to shoot with, overflowing with photo and movie features, and backed by very fast shooting performance and excellent low-ISO photo quality.

The P510 has trouble focusing at the telephoto end and its low-light/high-ISO photo quality has room for improvement. Also, the camera feels cheaply constructed.

The Nikon Coolpix P510 is easy to recommend for its features, photos, and performance, but the usefulness of a 42x zoom lens is debatable.

The Nikon P510 marks a new development in bridge cameras for Nikon; featuring an eye-watering 42x optical zoom alongside a 16MP CMOS sensor and 3in tiltable LCD screen, it's clear that this is a...

Massive optical zoom, advanced specification, good image quality

Build quality not the best, tiltable LCD screen could be better

Nikon Coolpix P510 Digital Camera Review

 

Our reviewer Daniel Bell was impressed with the Nikon Coolpix P500, this has now been replaced with the P510 and he gives his verdict on the new model.

42x optical zoom; Tilting screen; Manual control modes (P/S/A/M); Full HD movies; 5fps at full 16.1Mp; Excellent panoramas at both 360° and 180°; Superb macro pictures

Not a lot different from the

Nikon Coolpix S10083/100

Picture quality, long lens, features, LCD screen quality, GPS, movie quality with stereo sound

No RAW mode, no hot shoe, no filter thread, slow focusing when full zoom used

At the time of writing this review the Nikon Coolpix P510 is out in front when it comes to the length of zoom on offer. Picture quality is inline with other extreme zoom digital cameras like the Canon Powershot SX40 HS. With the wide range of features...

Nikon Coolpix P510

 

The 16 megapixel Nikon Coolpix P510 is a compact camera in the superzoom class, that sports a 42X optical zoom, covering a currently unmatched focal range of 24-1000mm (equivalent), compared to 38X (23-810mm) from its predecessor the P500. As well as...

Extreme 42x (24-1000m equivalent) wide angle zoom ; Very capable optical image stabilization system ; Effective automatic CA/fringing correction ; PASM shooting modes ; Good image quality at low ISOs ; Good performance ; Continuous shooting up to 7fps...

Small, pokey electronic viewfinder ; EVF/LCD switch is manual, not automatic ; Slow f/3-f/5.9 lens ; Occasional focus hunting at telephoto settings ; Noise levels increase noticeably at ISO 800 and above ; No RAW option

The P510 is a well-featured little camera built around an incredible 42X zoom lens. The lens is the P510's main selling point and anyone looking for a go-everywhere camera for travel or general-purpose photography will be impressed by its versatility....

Nikon Coolpix P510

 

Bigger than a compact, but smaller than an SLR, the 42x Nikon Coolpix P510 packs a high-quality lens that delivers sharp images.

Long 42x zoom lens. Sharp images. Snappy performance. 1080p video capture. Integrated GPS.

High-speed burst limited to 5 shots. No hot shoe or mic input.

You can frame images via the camera's rear 3-inch LCD, which is quite sharp at 921k dots, or the eye-level electronic viewfinder. The LCD is hinged so it can be viewed from above or below, but it doesn't swivel out from the camera like the display on...
