Can one camera really do it all? The Nikon Coolpix P510

 Can one camera really do it all?

Maybe this one can.

  The Nikon Coolpix P510

42x optical zoom and highly advanced VR image stabilization

A 16.1 megapixel Back-illuminated CMOS image sensor is paired with a 42x zoom NIKKOR ED glass lens that covers the phenomenal focal range of 24 mm wide-angle to 1000 mm super-telephoto*. Newly advanced Lens-shift VR image stabilization compensates more effectively than ever** for camera shake. This serves as a big aid in achieving consistently sharp results, particularly when taking advantage of the super-zoom or shooting macros.

Optimized controls and designed for efficient handling

The 7.5-cm (3-in.) vari-angle 921k-dot (approx.) high-resolution Clear color display can be tilted as much as 90 degrees (approx.) upward or 82 degrees (approx.) downward. You can assign often-used functions to the new Function button for quick one-touch access. The handgrip is designed to help minimize camera shake. And the body includes a side zoom control for stable handling.

High-speed continuous shooting helps capture all the action

The COOLPIX P510 keeps you ahead of the action with high-speed shooting options. High-speed continuous shooting enables rapid capturing at 7-fps (approx.) for full-resolution (4608 x 3456) images*. Other high-speed modes include Sports continuous mode (approx. 60fps/120fps) and the Pre-shooting cache.
  • * Up to five consecutive images.

Beautiful handheld still images at night

The continuous shooting and compositing capabilities of the Back-illuminated CMOS image sensor help you take beautiful night landscape or night portrait pictures while shooting with the camera in hand.

Other features

  • Built-in GPS with logging function
  • EXPEED C2 image processing engine
  • COOLPIX Picture Control
  • Silhouette and High ISO monochrome effects added to the lineup of available Special effects
  • Enhanced Scene auto selector
  • Full 1080p HD movie recording with stereo sound and capability to capture still images
  • 16 optimized scene modes
  • USB charging via Charging AC adapter (supplied) or PC
  • Eye-Fi card support.

 I may not be ready to replace my collection of DSLR's but these are some very impressive specs for a compact camera.
