Perfect for nonprofessional photography

I ordered it 3days before going to Jim Corbett and to my surprise it came to me in just 2 days. Was too happy to get it so early but it was just the beginning of surprises. As I started taking the pic I realised that it had a extra ordinary zoom function and it gave such clear pictures of far placed things which were not clearly visible with naked eyes. That was really impressive but regarding the resolution I realised it when I came back from Jim Corbett and connected the camera to HD TV and iPad these were the best pics I had ever taken with extreme clarity. If you read the settings and use according to instructions it will give perfect clear picture of even moving objects. I also used it to make HD videos and there too it scores a perfect 10/10. Regarding cons , the picture quality is not so good in dim light and late evenings or may had not done the settings properly, and the cover case of camara is very good but it does not has space for camara charger so it becomes cumbersome to carry charger separatly In a single line I will advice go for it to get best nonprofessional pics as SLR is difficult to operate.

Overall a Good Choice....value for money

Nikon Coolpix P520 plenty of light and it can turn out some excellent photos throughout its 42x zoom range. It has a lot of shooting options for those who like to fiddle with settings or straight snapshooters; a nice flip-out rotating LCD; and built-in GPS and support for Nikon's Wi-Fi adapter for use with Android and iOS devices. Its autofocus system is slow when the lens is zoomed in, especially when compared with other models in its class; battery life is short; and the camera feels cheaply constructed. More point-and-shoot than dSLR in terms of features and performance than some competing high-end megazooms, the Nikon Coolpix P520 is a very good camera for those after a big zoom range, better control over results, and fine picture quality.i am happy with it......:)
