Hey everyone, Glad i found this great forum. I have been taking digital photos with several different Nikon Coolpix cameras for many years for my online business. I have 3 online stores that specialize in antique/estate jewelry and antique and vintage items. My most recent coolpix is a P510. I've had it for several years and it has served me VERY well. The past 5 months, even after doing a complete reset my photos just aren't turning out great and the camera is hesitating turning on and off....

A friend of mine has a coolpix p510. When set to aperture mode, it seems that she can't set it to anything beyond f7.9?  I am not familiar with any of the coolpix models, but I would think one could set it to f11 or smaller?

I started this in the Questions thread but was told to ask it here: I understand aperture, what it does and such, but I don't understand how to determine it on this camera. If I am in Auto mode, I can use the exposure compensation settings and see the view screen darken or lighten as I set it. Great! However, in Manual mode, if I fix a shutter speed, the ISO, and then try setting the aperture, I can go from the lowest F stop to the highest, but there's no change from light to dark on the...

Good Evening All. I have a P510 since it came out many years ago, and have taken several thousand photos, 90% of which are rubbish (my fault not the camera). I now wish to upgrade to a newer bridge camera, my main area of photography is wildlife (birds, animals, flowers etc) landscapes and old buildings. What should I go for long zoom P900 for birds or Panasonic FZ1000 for big sensor and better image quality, or some other model, 4K/UHD is of no interest to me but I would like to have slow...

I've been using my P510 for 5 years and like many others, I've been anxiously awaiting the DL line. Since it seems that the DL series is going to be a no-show for a while longer, I'm considering buying the P900. My question has to do with the image quality  at the top end. The P510 certainly gives acceptable images at it's 1000mm equivalent setting...how does the P900 compare at it's 1000mm setting? Is the image equally as soft at this equivalent focal length or does the P900 provide crisper...

Hi guys,The last 3 years I use the Nikon P510. Wonderful camera except to its auto focus behavior, especially in video mode. sometimes, it takes ages, if at all, to get a sharp video while zooming-in, especially at the highest zoom. Other times it goes just fine - I couldn't find any correlation to light conditions or other factors. Last year in a jazz festival I almost broke it with frustration and anger--50% of my videos went down the tube... Anyway, I want to replace it now with a similar...

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!
