It's hard to say no to the Nikon P510 with a 42X lens and only $399. But what good is a 42X lens without a remote shutter release?

It's not so hard when Nikon stubbornly refuses to include the features this class of camera deserves. Panasonic does - at least I can add a teleconverter if I need the extra reach and still have all the bells and whistles...

Nikon has so much invested in their DSLRs and Nikon 1 systems that they won't go near offering a full-featured superzoom. Nikon prefers to look upon the P series as add-on cameras for DSLR owners or for their family members. I like the P7100 as an add-on, but went with the FZ150.
Are you ready to make someone's day a little brighter?
