The 18 megapixel Nikon Coolpix P520 Bridge Camera features a massive 42x optical zoom NIKKOR lens (24–1000mm coverage), advanced lens-shift vibration reduction, a large 3.2-inch vari-angle LCD monitor, Full HD movie recording and built-in GPS.
42x optical zoom NIKKOR lens
Extend your range from powerful wide-angle to super-telephoto coverage. Four ED glass elements minimize chromatic aberration. 24-1000mm (35mm equivalent).
Back-illuminated 18 MP CMOS sensor
With each pixel receiving more light, this highly sensitive image sensor works with the EXPEED C2 processor to deliver clear shots in any light.
Advanced lens-shift VR
Second-generation vibration reduction enables slower shutter speeds (up to four stops), while ‘Active mode’ even delivers clear shots from moving vehicles.
Full HD (1080/60i) movie recording with stereo sound
A dedicated video-record button makes it easy to begin filming and you can also take still photos while filming.
Vari-angle 3.2-in. 921k-dot LCD monitor
This high-resolution screen, as featured on professional Nikon D-SLR cameras, boasts an anti-reflective coating and offers superb colour reproduction.
Use Wi-Fi to transfer your high-quality images and movies to your smart device* via an optional Wi-Fi dongle (WU-1a).
Built-in Global Positioning System (GPS)
Record the exact latitude and longitude of images as a ‘geotag’, review point-of-interest (POI) information in playback, or retrace your route via computer.
Auto HDR mode
Combines two shots taken at different exposures during a single shutter release to create an image with wide dynamic range and rich colour gradation in any situation.
Allows you to focus on subjects really close-up (effectively from just 1 cm distance) to capture the smallest of details.
Easy Panorama 360°/180°
Pan vertically or horizontally to create dynamic panoramas.
3D shooting mode
Create a 3D image of any still subject to be played back on 3D-enabled TVs and computers.
Customizable function button
Allows you to bypass the menu by creating shortcuts to your favorite camera settings.
Advanced movie features
Use the optical zoom with autofocus when recording and film in slow or fast motion (up to 120 fps). Record movies in iFrame format and use the built-in HDMI connector to view them.
High-speed continuous shooting
Shoot up to 7 frames at full resolution at 7 fps, or up to 30 full-resolution shots at 1 fps.
With manual exposure modes (P/S/A/M) and User mode with which you can recall your preferred camera settings instantly.
19 scene modes
Automatically optimize the camera settings for popular photographic styles, effects and locations. Achieve great shots just by selecting the mode that matches your situation.
Fast and accurate AF
When you want to capture complex subjects, you can shoot in manual focus with a 99-point autofocus system for extra-sharp results.
Subject Tracking AF
Achieve sharp shots of subjects that can’t or won’t stay still. Subject Tracking AF keeps the camera focused on a selected subject even if it is moving around.
Enhance your photos in-camera with a range of filter effects. Options include Selective Color, which converts your image to monochrome then adds a splash of color to an area of your choice, and Cross Screen, which lends a starry effect to bright objects.
Nikon’s fast and powerful image processing system enables high-speed operation, enhanced movie recording, high-sensitivity performance and maximum image quality.
