The COOLPIX P510, successor to the hugely popular COOLPIX P500, offers an astounding 42x optical NIKKOR zoom lens that ranges from a powerful 1000mm super-telephoto focal length, down to a 24mm wide-angle. It also packs a punch with its 16-megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor and advanced lens-shift vibration reduction. The P510 is able to capture detail that would be too far away to reach with any other camera. Steady shots are ensured in any situation, thanks to advanced lens-shift vibration reduction.

Zooming beyond expectations: the high performance COOLPIX P510
An excellent performer with unparalleled range, the compact COOLPIX P510 boasts a 42x zoom, a tiltable high resolution 921K-dot LCD monitor and Full HD (1080p) movie recording with stereo sound.
For everything from wide-angle shots of a group of friends to long-reaching frames of dolphins out at sea, the astonishingly powerful wide-angle to super-telephoto range of the COOLPIX P510 covers all circumstances. Its 16-megapixel backlit CMOS sensor and advanced lens-shift vibration reduction ensure sharp shooting in any light, so that even at longer focal lengths, frames remain steady and subjects are pin-sharp.
One-touch access to movie mode means you can switch easily from taking stills to filming in Full HD (1080p) with stereo sound. Optical zoom and autofocus functions are still available when filming, and the COOLPIX P510 can record in slow or fast motion using speeds of up to 120 fps (VGA). Movies can be shot in iFrame format and a built-in HDMI connector lets you connect the camera directly to an HDTV, to view photos and films straight away with family and friends.
The tiltable high resolution LCD monitor will help you discover your creative side, making it easy to take shots from above or below to get a different perspective. Built-in GPS records the exact location where a picture was taken as a geotag in the image data.

Advanced Lens-shift VRII realises the equivalent of a shutter speed setting that's four stops faster than the actual physical setting.

42x optical zoom and Nikon VRII image stabilisation
A 16.1 megapixel Back-illuminated CMOS image sensor is paired with a 42x zoom NIKKOR ED glass lens that covers the phenomenal focal range of 24 mm wide-angle to 1000 mm super-telephoto (35 mm format equivalent). Advanced Lens-shift VRII realises the equivalent of a shutter speed setting that's four stops faster than the actual physical setting. This is a big aid to achieving consistently sharp results, particularly when taking advantage of the super-zoom, shooting macros or recording 1080p Full HD movies.

The continuous shooting and compositing capabilities of the Back-illuminated CMOS image sensor helps you take beautiful Night landscape or Night portrait pictures while shooting with the camera in hand.

Optimised controls and designed for efficient handling
The 7.5 cm (3-in.) vari-angle 921k-dot (approx.) high-resolution Clear colour display can be tilted as much as 90 degrees (approx.) upward or 80 degrees (approx.) downward. You can assign often-used functions to the new Function button for quick one-touch access. The handgrip is designed to help minimise camera shake. And the body includes a side-mounted zoom control for stable handling.
High-speed continuous shooting helps capture all the action
The COOLPIX P510 keeps you ahead of the action with high-speed shooting options. With a press of the dedicated continuous shooting mode button, you can quickly switch from single-frame to High-speed continuous shooting at a rapid 6fps (approx.) for full-resolution (4608 x 3456) images*. Other modes include Sports continuous mode (approx. 60fps/120fps) and the Pre-shooting cache.
Beautiful handheld still images and movies at night
The continuous shooting and compositing capabilities of the Back-illuminated CMOS image sensor helps you take beautiful Night landscape or Night portrait pictures while shooting with the camera in hand. The same benefit is also seen when shooting 1080p Full HD movies.
