Product Details

Nikon COOLPIX P520 Black 18.1 Megapixel Digital Camera, Model COOLPIXP520BLK

Get exceptional image quality and unsurpassed versatility with the Nikon Coolpix P520 superzoom digital camera.

42X NIKKOR Superzoom Can See It All

The crowning feature of the Coolpix P520 is the genuine NIKKOR 42x optical zoom lens. With a range spanning from 24mm to 1000mm, there's almost nothing you won't be able to capture in a photo. Widen the lens out to capture sweeping vistas of the Grand Canyon, or with the flip of a lever, zoom in to peep on a hikers at the Canyon's bottom. Camera shake is amplified at such long focal lengths, but Nikon's integrated lens-shift Vibration Reduction will keep it from ruining your photos.

High Resolution, BSI CMOS Sensor

A long lens doesn't mean much without a quality sensor in front of it. Thankfully, the Nikon Coolpix P520 is packed with a powerhouse 18.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor, which will render your photos with exquisite detail. Cutting edge technology known as backside illumination makes the sensor extra sensitive in low-light, for clear night-time shots even without a flash. And if that weren't enough, the P520 can also shoot Full HD videos at a variety of framerates.

Cutting Edge Features

If Nikon had stopped there, the Coolpix P520 would already be a fantastic camera, perhaps the best travel camera available. But they went the extra mile, adding features like the 3.2" vari-angle LCD screen, which lets you frame your shots from overhead, on the ground or anywhere in between. The built-in GPS can record the exact location of every photo taken, and with the optional WU-1a wireless mobile adapter, you can instantly beam your photos to your smartphone or tablet, for easy online sharing.


  • Capture distant images with a 42x wide-angle to telephoto NIKKOR glass zoom lens
    Every COOLPIX is designed around a genuine NIKKOR glass lens, the legendary optics that have made Nikon famous. The COOLPIX P520 features a 42x zoom NIKKOR lens that takes you from wide-angle group shots to telephoto close-ups in an instant. And don't worry about a little camera shake—lens-shift Vibration Reduction helps keep the shot steady even when your hands are not
  • Built-in GPS with Points of Interest (POI) for creating amazing photo journals
    Relive the excitement of your travels in a whole new way. The COOLPIX P520 records the exact location of each shot you take, so you can follow the path of your adventure and every stunning view along the way! Share your journeys on Google Earth™, Google+™, and other social media sites or with the included Nikon View NX2 software. Built-in GPS helps you navigate unfamiliar destinations, and Points of Interest (POI) show you nearby photo-ops like scenic lookouts and historic landmarks. The COOLPIX P520 is the ultimate travel companion!
  • Compatible with the WU-1a wireless mobile adapter for anytime, anywhere sharing
    Connect the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter and wirelessly transfer photos to your smartphone, tablet or any compatible Wi-Fi® enabled device. Use your smartphone to instantly upload your shots to the web or email them to a friend. Install Nikon's free Wireless Mobile Adapter Utility and remotely control the COOLPIX P520—see what the camera sees from your smartphone or tablet and fire off shots!
  • High-performance CMOS image sensor lets you shoot without a flash
    Imagine being able to shoot without a flash at weddings, concerts, parties—anywhere your flash normally fires. You won't have to interrupt a moment to capture it, and your photos and HD videos will look more natural and true to your memory. The COOLPIX P520 performs so well in low light situations that, in most cases, using the flash is optional. Of course, when the lighting is extremely poor and you need a flash, it'll be there
  • 1080p Full HD videos with stereo sound for dazzling movies
    If you want a compact camera that shoots stunning Full HD videos, the COOLPIX P520 delivers. 1080p Full HD means exceptional video quality. Record the action, then connect to an HDTV and watch your videos come alive. A built-in mic records high-quality audio in stereo. Your videos will look and sound phenomenal
  • Don't sweat a little camera shake
    Lens-shift Vibration Reduction helps keep the shot steady, even if your hands are not. Say goodbye to blurry photos, shaky videos and tripods
  • Take control of your vision
    When you want to take control of exposure, the COOLPIX P520 is ready. Select from P/S/A/M exposure modes and the creative options will seem endless
  • Gain new perspectives
    Use the 3.2-inch ultra-high-resolution (921,000 dot) Vari-angle LCD monitor to capture some really unconventional angles
  • Freeze action in its tracks
    When the action speeds up, simply hold the shutter button and fire off up to 7 continuous shots per second. Catch views you may not have seen before in your photos
