Offering 16.1 megapixels combined with a 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 moment at concerts, parties and sunsets. A powerful EXPEED C2 image sensor engine provides a responsive operation, high-sensitivity performance and beautiful image quality.
Thanks to Vibration Reduction technology the lens counteracts movement to ensure each image is crisp, sharp and in full focus.
Bolstered with a 42x optical zoom capability, extendable to 84x with Dynamic Fine Zoom, 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.
Capture moments in Full HD with dramatic stereo sound quality, link to an HDTV and playback your videos in dazzling form. A dedicated movie record button gives you instant recording, great for those one-off moments. You can also capture stills during recording and utilise the autofocus and optical zoom when filming.
The Smart algorithm AF works by improving focus detection in low light conditions by swiftly locking the subject. Focus peaking in manual focus highlights the image edges in white for intensity adjustment.
The COOLPIX P530 automatically indentifies and focuses the subject for a clearer and sharper shooting experience.
There are plenty of scene modes to explore during your photography adventures. These specialised scene modes offer automatic settings for capturing challenging imagery at just a simple press of the shutter. There are 21 scene modes for optimising camera settings – doing all the hard work for you.
An Auto HDR mode combines two shots snapped at different exposures in a single shutter release, creating an image with wide dynamic range and rich colour gradation.
Shoot spectacular close-up shots with gorgeous background focus in macro shooting – you can capture as close as 1 cm, great for nature shots. A Panorama 360°/180°mode lets you capture stunning landscapes in one breathtaking photo, just pan the camera vertically or horizontally across the scene.
High-speed continuous shooting at 7 fps or up to 200 frames at 1 fps lets you capture the fast-moving action, leaving you to pick the best frame.
