The black Nikon COOLPIX P530 Digital Camera is a 16.1 megapixel point-and-shoot camera with a 42x optical zoom NIKKOR lens featuring a focal length of 4.3-180mm and a variable aperture of f/3-5.9. This 35mm equivalent zoom range of 24-1000mm allows you to shoot wide and at super telephoto distances, making the P530 a versatile camera capable of high resolution images and full HD 1920 x 1080 video. Also, the lens has optical image stabilization in the form of Vibration Reduction for reducing the effects of camera shake at long focal lengths and slow shutter speeds.
For viewing images and changing settings there is a 3" LCD display as well as an electronic viewfinder. Both of these offer 100% coverage during shooting for helping achieve proper composition. Also, the P530 features a variety of exposure modes, including full manual, shutter priority, aperture priority, and program.
When shooting in low-light situations, there is a built-in flash available. The P530 also saves images to either built-in memory or to an SD card. And, if you want Wi-Fi connectivity, this camera is compatible with the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter (available separately).
16.1MP Back-Side Illuminated CMOS Image Sensor
The 16.1 megapixel CMOS sensor provides high resolution images with minimal noise in low-light conditions due to a back-side illuminated design.
42x High Power Zoom with Lens-shift VR
The 42x zoom opens up a range of possibilities and shooting perspectives for you to explore. To enhance image clarity, lens-shift VR (Vibration Reduction) helps compensate for camera shake, which is more likely to occur when shooting at or around the 42x zoom setting. ACTIVE mode can be used to minimize image blur when shooting from a moving vehicle or any other unstable position, stabilizing both captured and viewfinder images.
3.0" LCD Display & Electronic Viewfinder
The 3.0" LCD display features 921K-dot resolution for viewing images and changing settings as well as shooting. In addition there is an electronic viewfinder for a natural shooting style reminiscent of a DSLR camera.
Full HD 1080/60i Video with Stereo Sound
In addition to high-quality still photographs, the COOLPIX P530 can capture Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution video at 60 interlaced frames per second. Moreover, the built-in microphone enables stereo audio recordings.
Support for WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter
The COOLPIX P530 is compatible with the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter (available separately). Using the WU-1a allows you to share your shots online or control the camera with a compatible smartphone or tablet.
Auto and Manual Controls
The COOLPIX P530 employs a combination of auto and manual controls, including COOLPIX Picture Control, scene auto selector and optimized scene modes. Exposure modes include Programmed Auto, Shutter Priority, Aperture Priority and Manual. Manual focus is also available.
