    In the past I always used Canon or Sony. The Nikon cameras I have, including the P520 are superior in getting clear focus on zoom. I am very happy with the P520. It takes ultra sharp video and the snapshots are very clear as well. This is the next best thing to having an 800mm EOS Camera and Lens.

    Used this camera a few separate times since we've had it. So far we're very happy with it. The zoom is amazing and several night time pictures were great making the scene look like daytime. Love the size of this camera. Much more usable than our bigger DSLR.

    Customer review by BirdBrainiac

    5.0 stars by BirdBrainiac

    I have had a nikon coolpix camera { p100} for 3 years prior to this purchase. I love to bird watch and my old zoom {26x} wasn't doing it for me and I was missing many new birds in my view. I did some research on a few bird watching sites and most mentioned the p520 for best point and shoot /zoom {46x}. I am still having a little trouble learning the zoom on how close I need to be from moving bird subjects to get that great shot, but it seems to be much better the second weekend of bird watching. I do love the light weight of it to. Once I learn the zoom I will be on to the GPS part of the camera. There are so many manual buttons to work to {but that is a bit much for me in bird wathing} the birds don't sit around to long for you to change those settings. If I am photographing something macro or still life I will use the manual buttons, but I bought it for fast photography. I would recommend this camera for the hobbiest photographer like myself. Although those who have seen many of my photo's do ask what lens I use? When I tell them it is a nikon point and shoot, they can't believe that a point and shoot camera can take shots like that. :)
