The black Nikon COOLPIX P520 Digital Camera features an 18.1MP CMOS sensor and a 4.3-180mm f/3.0-5.9 NIKKOR lens for capturing high-quality still photos and Full HD 1080/60i videos. The 42x optical zoom offers a wide to super telephoto focal range, and the 2x digital zoom gets you even closer to the action, even from far away. Track your travels and explore points of interest with the built-in GPS, which records the location of each shot. Plus, an optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter allows you to share your shots or control the camera with a compatible smartphone or tablet (sold separately).
Back Side Illuminated CMOS Image Sensor
18.1 effective megapixels provide plenty of power to deliver high-resolution images, and the backside illuminated CMOS image sensor receives more light than conventional sensors to record higher quality images, especially when taking pictures in Night landscape mode using the consecutive shot combining technology.
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) reliably compensates 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.
3.2" Vari-Angle LCD Display
The 3.2" LCD display features 921K-dot resolution, and its Vari-angle design allows you to monitor and compose shots comfortably from various shooting positions.
Full HD 1080/60i Video with Stereo Sound
In addition to high-quality still photographs, the COOLPIX P520 can capture Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution video at 60 interlaced frames per second. Moreover, the built-in microphone enables stereo audio recordings.
Built-in GPS Recording
With an onboard database of about 1.86 million Points of Interest, built-in GPS gives you extensive capability to quickly record, store and confirm the names of shooting locations where you take pictures. The recorded GPS information can be displayed on the "NIKON IMAGE SPACE" map view or ViewNX 2. Note: in some sales areas, the POI function is not available.
Support for WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter
The COOLPIX P520 is compatible with the WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter (sold separately). Using the WU-1a allows you to share your shots online or control the camera with a compatible smartphone or tablet.
Designed for Optimal Control and Operability
Assign frequently used functions to the Function button for quick one-touch access. Feel how the ergonomic handgrip maximizes comfort and minimizes camera shake, complementing other features that ensure handling stability, such as the Side zoom control.
