Helen, scotland Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Takes much better indoor photos than my previous digital compact, this was my initial reason for changing. Also like the long zoom, the portrait and sports scene options are especially useful too. Eventually I hope to use the manual settings and understand how these all work - so this camera is great as a way to improve your photography without having to learn too much and go straight to a DSLR, Good size and not too heavy.
Bad points:
The cover for the connection cable is a little plasticy like so many cameras seem to have. I thought that wifi was built in but it isn't.

Jijivonhi, Bristol Experienced amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use, ideal for those who do not want to carry or use bulky professional cameras but want excellent image qualities. This is my second Nikon bridge camera. The first one lasted for about 4yrs and I have used it in many countries as I travel alot. The camera is very durable, but be very careful not to expose it to sandstorms, especially in the desert. That's how my first Nikon Coolpix got damaged.
Bad points:

alan, London Keen amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Simple to use (you can just point and click) but it also does most things a SLR would allow you to without the need for extra lences.
Bad points:
Instructions on a CD?. This means that if you want to do more than point and click you need to carry an computer with you for a while.

Digital Cameras Buyers' Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

Professional quality

The Coolpix camera is equipped with an 18.1 megapixel low-light CMOS sensor that fills each image with cut-sharp clarity and natural colour. The high performance CMOS image sensor allows you to capture stunning shots in low light without the need of a flash. Capture the realism in the moment at concerts, parties and sunsets.

Thanks to Vibration Reduction technology the lens counteracts movement to ensure each image is crisp, sharp and in full focus.

Zooming

Bolstered with a 42x optical zoom capability, the compact camera gets up close from incredible distance, allowing you to snap far away subjects in unprecedented detail and create attractive background blurring. The legendary NIKKOR glass lens takes you from wide-angle shots to telephoto close-ups.

Connectivity

Remember every moment of the photo through the intelligent GPS functionality. The P520 records the exact details of the location of the shot, allowing you to follow your journey through photos. You can even share your journey on Google Earth, Google+ and other social media sites through the included Nikon View NX2 software. This GPS connectivity helps you navigate through unknown territory and find Points of Interest (POI), making it easy to discover a photo opportunity!

Enjoy full wireless convenience with the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter. This handy device enables you to connect to a network and enjoy instant transfers to your photos to smartphone, tablet or any compatible Wi-Fi® enabled device.

More moments

Capture moments in Full HD with dramatic stereo sound quality, link to a HDTV and playback your videos in dazzling form. Take control of your image and adjust the exposure to suit your shot, select from P/S/A/M exposure modes – opening creative doors.

Never again will you experience a subject too fast to shoot, hold the shutter and fire a burst of 7 shots per second!

You’ll always need more memory

It is important to have the right memory card for your camera. The memory card will determine how fast an image is saved and how fast an image is uploaded.

If you’re shooting high definition videos along with high resolution images then it’s best to invest in a high performance memory card. A high performance memory card will get the best out of your photography, ensuring the best continuous shooting speed and high quality data capture.

With the perfect balance of performance and usability, the Nikon Coolpix P520 Bridge Camera offers a complete photography experience in a neatly packed and stylish form.
