Whilst I certainly would not recommend the P510 for anyone who regularly uses video record functioning it does most definitely have a number of other redeeming features that are highly desirable in a compact of its class. The generous offering of...

The Nikon Coolpix P510 is a nice bridge to handle and use. What's more, the jaw-dropping focal range (24-1000 mm) makes it a very versatile camera indeed. It takes good-quality pictures, but the P510 can be a bit slow to focus, especially at maximum...

There's no denying in that if you decide to purchase the P510, you're going to be getting an awful lot of camera for your money. The model also performs well in use, mostly managing to sidestep any potential pitfalls of having that massive 42x...

The Nikon Coolpix P510 ups the ante in the ultra-zoom camera stakes by offering an incredible telephoto zoom setting of 1000mm. Remarkably it's still possible to hand-hold the camera in good light and achieve sharp pictures thanks to the excellent...

The differences between the P510 and its predecessor are very subtle, but Nikon have boosted the lens to 42x optical zoom and upgraded to a 16.1 megapixel sensor. It is a feature packed camera, which delivers impressive results. This is a fantastic...
