I’ve recently purchased the Nikon P900 and was hoping for some guidance regarding one aspect of the camera I’m struggling with. When I take photos of people close up I prefer to use a flash to even out skin tone, shadows, etc. With my previous camera Coolpix P520, the flash always went off if it was popped up. However, an issue I’ve encountered with P900 is that although I’ll pop the flash up, often the flash doesn’t illuminate the subject directly in front of me when I take a photo, and it...

Hi! Last summer I bought Nikon P520, and it turned out to be a great camera. Many many hours were spent in the forest watching birds. While this camera is great for the price, there are a few shortcomings I'd like to address by buying something other for the next season: 1. Viewfinder is not suitable for birding - too small, too grainy, can't recognize small details to focus properly. 2. Unreliable focus - lots of missed valuable moments. 3. Shutter lag - bird is often already gone. 4. Too...

Hoping someone can shed some light on the advisability of a 3rd party battery & charger vs the mfr's genuine equipment. I read several queries in the Nikon Coolpix forum but with inconclusive (my opinion) results. My Coolpix P520 came with a single battery. The Nikon-supplied charging scheme allows only in-camera charging. I also have a pocket Nikon (S51) that has an external charger. While the batteries appear similar the P520 is too large (esp length) to fit the S51 charger. 1. Is there a...

I will like to purchase an extra battery for my camera, but I am not sure how good are the other brands I am seeing online. My Nikon P520 came with the original NIKON EN-EL5 battery, but after about 150 - 200 pics the battery is exhausted and sometimes I take more than that amount of pics at any one outing. I have seen the LENMAR DLNEL5 Nikon EN-EL5 replacement battery and the INSTEN 2 replacement at WALMART, anyone know how good are these brands. I am afraid of buying batteries that will...

I have a coolpix p520 and really like it.  I am looking for a second camera as a backup or so I can have each camera set to certain parameters (black and white for one, color for the other that I would have already configured for each camera) when I am in a situation where I would need to change modes very quickly.  As I am on a fixed income I need to keep within the price range of these two cameras.  Also, I feel that anything I want to do with a camera can be done with either of these...

I've got the app to run my P520 remotely from my 'phone and it works great with stills, including zoom but don't see any way to run the video remotely. In remote control, the record button on the camera is de-activated and there's no record button showing in the phone display. Does anyone know if the video function can be accessed remotely ??  I did try to do a search but came up with nothing on the subject. Thanks............Lars --Larry BourneAirplane Builder; Fish Chaser; Desert Rat;...

Just acquired the Nikon P520 about one week.  I have only used it in Auto Mode, because I am an Amateur photographer.  I have tried taking photos with the Zoom at its fullest and have found that my pictures are not clear, they are cloudy.  Could you please guide me as to how I must get clear photos when using the Zoom lense.

I just bought a refurbished Nikon P520 and ran down to Best Buy to toss a UV filter on it. A quick (obviously, too quick) search on the internet shows it takes a 77 mm filter. I tried it. I tried it with the 62 mm step down ring. Then a 58, a 55, a 52 and a 49. They were all too large. Obviously, something is wrong. The sales rep at the store went online and said he also found it needed a 77 mm filter, then he added that he saw something about a Nikon adaptor ring. Is this some type of...
