P510: The Moon, Handheld at 1000
Apr 6, 2012

Here is a shot of the Moon which I just took with my newly arrived P510, at 1000, handheld:

Here is the same shot with a bit of Photoshop tweaking:

And, for comparison, here is a shot of the moon I took at full zoom with my Sony DSC-HX100V when I first got it.

It has been Photoshop-ed, however.

Well done,

I took another one of the Moon last night, about the same as that so I won't bother posting but the Moon's at a different angle for me, probably something to do with latitude.

I think Mars was beside it but I lucked out with that and didn't fancy standing about getting eaten by bugs.

Thanks, everyone.

The main reason I posted these is because I thought the P510's stabilizer technology did a reasonably good job of dealing with such a long zoom.

It also seems that the image from the P510 is not nearly as processed as the image from the HX100V. The Moon shot from the Sony has a bit of smearing from heavy processing, resulting a slight "watercolor" look, while the Nikon seems to go a bit easier on the processing.

Overall, I am happy with the camera so far. My biggest gripe is that there is no proximity sensor for the viewfinder, so the switching between the LCD screen and the viewfinder requires the press of a button. Some of the menu navigation is less well thought out than on the Sony, as well.
