I started out with a Nikon Coolpix P510, and took great pictures of the moon. You can see craters! It has a Nikkor 42X Wide Optical Zoom ED VR 4.3-180mm 1:3 - 5.9 lens. Now, I upgraded to a Nikon D5500 and a AF-S Nikkor 55-300mm 1:4.5 - 5.6 lens. I can't even see craters, the moon is a white blob. What would the reason be? I thought the 300 mm would take better shots than the 180 mm. Please explain, and help me understand. With 55-300mm lens With 4.3-180mm lens! Thanks!

Just a comment. I had a P510 which I really enjoyed using except for slow focusing when zooming and horrible focusing when filming.

Recently I tried taking a few moon shots as did my son on the P510, that he now has, and, for the record, no matter how I have manipulated and cropped the shots from the Olympus, the P510 blows it into the...

I currently have a bridge camera nikon p510 with 42x zoom. I absolutely love this camera for what it is! I actually use the zoom a majority of the time for wildlife photography (mostly birds). The only thing holding me back currently is image quality. Sometimes when I go to crop a photo the pixels are noticeable. I was looking into getting a nikon d5200 but am open to any suggestions around a similar price range. A link to my flickr can be found here:...
I am an architect and beginner in photography. I am looking for a digital compact camera that I could use for architectural views. Until now I am using a camera with fish-eye lens so I am looking for a compact digital camera that has built/embedded/attached fish-eye lens, but I have not spotted anything.. Does it exist? If not which model should I choose from the range of compact digital cameras that could also achieve the result -or close to it- of a fish eye lens? The price is also an...

I am having trouble getting my Nikon P510 to focus on distant objects in the night sky - you would think I could just set it on infinity and it would be fine, but no. This 42X can easily pick up the craters on the Moon and the Galilean Moons of Jupiter, but it is frustrating trying to get focus.
