Chanced upon the Canon CHDK site & wondered if there is anything similar for the Nikon Coolpix P520. Hoping for RAW format. Thanks

I cannot find panoramic on any settings. I sure hope this has it as I have been using it a lot on the p520. Never used this sight and am looking forward to this new experience...Russ

I have and old Coolpix 520, and I am having a very hard time mastering focusing.  Autofocusing often lands me out of focus, and I miss a lot of shots because of this.  Is there a focusing tutorial, or any help for this? Thanks

For the past couple years I've shot with a Nikon Coolpix P520. I'm looking at upgrading - switching to Canon though.  I've been looking around - and thought I'd get a Rebel - probably the T6i or T6s,  but now I'm seeing the Canon 7D. It looks like a great camera - but I see that it came out in 2009 and that makes me feel like I'd be getting something already outdated. Any thoughts? Any other cameras you'd suggest? I appreciate all the help I can get! :)

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...
