Never knowingly undersold

Product information

The Nikon CoolPix P520 is more than an all-round camera - with its optical super-zoom and advanced sensor it’s a complete bridge system in a compact package. An integrated GPS also makes geotagging your shots easy, perfect for more intrepid snappers who want to remember what happened where. Its Full HD video recording, quick autofocus and continuous shooting mode ensure you’ll always capture the moment.

Key features:

  • The P520 features an exceptional 42x optical-zoom and precision engineered 24-1000mm NIKKOR wide-angle lens for unrivalled clarity and detail.
  • Back illuminated 18.1 megapixel CMOS image sensor increases the amount of light that each pixel receives, improving sensitivity and reducing noise for superb performance in any light.
  • Auto HDR mode captures images with beautiful tones in any situation. The P520 combines shots taken at different exposures during a single shutter release to create an image rich in colour range.
  • Connect the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter (available separately) and wirelessly transfer photos to your smartphone, tablet or any compatible Wi-Fi enabled device. Use your smartphone to instantly upload your shots to the web or email them to a friend. Install Nikon's free Wireless Mobile Adapter Utility and remotely control the P520: see what the camera sees from your smartphone or tablet.
  • A large 3.2-inch tilting LCD screen offers vivid colour reproduction, sharp contrast and clear viewing. The anti-reflective coating makes getting around menus easy - even in bright sunlight.
  • Enjoy Full HD (1080p) movie recording at the touch of the dedicated movie button.
  • Create a 3D image of any still subject to be played back on 3D-capable TVs and computers. The camera combines two images taken from different positions; the second shot is taken automatically when the camera detects that you are in the right position.
  • Lens-shift Vibration Reduction helps keep the shot steady, even if your hands are not. Say goodbye to blurry photos, shaky videos and tripods. The image stabilisation on this camera is Lens Only.
  • Easy Panorama 360°/180° allows you to pan vertically or horizontally to create dynamic panoramas.
  • Includes: strap, battery, charger, USB cable, A/V cable and ViewNX software.
