Brilliant clarity. Astounding reach
For the outdoor photographer, the COOLPIX P510 puts you where you need to be. Bring your subjects up close and personal, with an incredible zoom range of 24mm-1,000mm. Spontaneous action is captured sharp and clear with optical VR Image Stabilization and amazingly fast autofocus. Every image and Full HD (1080p) movie dazzles when produced by the advanced 16.1 MP CMOS sensor.
Your destination awaits
With a 42x optical Zoom-NIKKOR ED glass lens, an incredible world of optical power and versatility awaits you. Shoot from 24mm wide-angle then zoom to an amazing 1,000mm and capture distant images. In addition, its close-up macro mode is incredible, allowing you to focus as close as 0.4 inches (1cm). The optical Vibration Reduction system minimizes the chance of blur while you take both photos and movies and the side zoom control provides easy access to the P510's powerful zoom capabilities.
Every nuance delivered
A 16.1 MP CMOS sensor expertly manages high-resolution imagery, delivering exceptional quality in any environment. Even when shooting in low light, your photos and movies will look great. The backside illuminated CMOS technology increases the flow of light to the CMOS sensor's surface, thereby yielding improved quality and minimum image noise.
Capture the spontaneous
Don't let a slow performing camera allow you to miss a single moment! Enjoy non-stop shooting with the P510's incredibly fast and responsive performance-up to 5 shots in approximately one second. So whether you're at a sporting event where the action never stops or are simply hoping to capture those fleeting smiles, the P510 delivers all the action with pinpoint accuracy.
