Just a few days ago, we featured the new Nikon 800mm super telephoto lens. But that’s a lens for specialists and it costs a small fortune. If you wanna get the same reach (and a little more), there’s a new superzoom camera for that purpose. The new Nikon COOLPIX P520 has 42x zoom, or a 1,000mm effective focal length. It’s also loaded with Vibration Reduction to counter that camera shake when zooming for those long shots. Still and moving image capture are done through an 18.1MP CMOS sensor coupled with a new EXPEED C2 image processor. Display is a 3.2-inch vari-angle LCD and it’s available in black, dark gray or in red. We compared it to the giant lens, but this camera is not a replacement for long-distance specialized photography, not by any stretch of the imagination. $447.
We hope you enjoyed this Nikon COOLPIX P520 article!
