About this deal

Finally, the effects position on the mode dial provides a range of filters which you can apply in-camera to reproduce traditional darkroom techniques. The P530 offers a good range of filters including Nostalgic sepia (is there any other kind?), High-contrast monochrome, Painting and Cross process. The most notable absence here is Miniature, which is also missing from the Sony H400, only the Canon SX520 HS offers it. Nikon COOLPIX P530 movie modes

There are two other reduced resolution modes running at 60fps and 120fps at 1920×1080 and 640×480 respectively. The COOLPIX P520 also has the Best Shot Selector and multi-shot 16 features common on COOLPIX compacts, the former, designed for low light shooting, takes a burst of ten shots and retains the sharpest one. Multi-shot 16 takes a 16-shot 5 Megapixel burst at around 30fps and combines the images into a 16×16 grid. Lastly, there’s an interval timer which shoots at intervals of 30s, 1m, 5m or 10m. Here, I’ve compared the COOLPIX P530 with the Canon PowerShot SX520 HS, which shares the same 42x zoom range, 16 Megapixel resolution and a lot of other features besides. I’ve also tested it alongside Sony’s Cyber-shot H400 which has a massive 63.3x zoom in a slightly larger, heavier body. Read on to discover which is the best buy for those looking for a long zoom with an affordable price tag. Our photo tests revealed a similar mixture of strengths and weaknesses. The lens performed well at the long end of the zoom, and although focus didn’t quite live up to the ambitious 18-megapixel sensor resolution, the levels of detail compared well with rivals. However, it wasn’t so competitive when shady conditions forced the ISO speed up. The resulting noise reduction made details look smudged and scruffy.

In addition to the 2-megapixel resolution bump, the P520 gets a new flip-out, rotating 3.2-inch LCD; a lower starting sensitivity of ISO 80; two more shots in its full-resolution burst mode, so now it can capture seven in a row; and support for Nikon's tiny WU-1a Wi-Fi adapter, so you can wirelessly connect to iOS or Android devices for viewing or sharing your photos and videos.It features a 1/2.3-inch 18.1MP CMOS sensor. The camera also includes a 42x optical zoom lens, which delivers a 35mm equivalent focal length of 24-1000mm, and offers a variable aperture from f/3-5.9. Nikon’s also equipped this lens with Lens-shift Vibration Reduction (VR), to smooth out any shake when zooming. Plus, the camera provides a 2x digital zoom, doubling the zoom range to a whopping 2000mm.
