Hello everyone, I am looking for a point and shoot super-zoom camera of at least 30X under 300$ CAD (Canadian). It has been a week of research and looking for good deals. I found some deals but now I can't make up my mind. Here are the models I am looking at, please tell me which would be your top choice (s) and why: 1) My 2 top choices (I think) for no paticular reason: Nikon COOLPIX P530 @ 199$ CAD Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ70 (FZ72) @ 299$ CAD 2) Other good choices: Nikon COOLPIX L340 @ 180$...

Hello, my new P530 has a far superior LCD screen on it than my previous camera. And I would like to have older pictures on there to show to people. However whenever I load them onto the SDHC card they will not show up in the gallery on board the camera. Is there any kind of formatting I can do to make this happen?
I am unsure if it is user issue or camera issue. Can you turn on the flash in Manual mode for the Coolpix p530? if so please inform me how. I have read the manual. I have tried everything. I can change it in Auto and scene modes. I can not turn the flash on in P, S, A, or M modes. If I can not turn flash on in these modes. I will have no other option than to take the camera back to the store. I am hoping it is user error.

I'm using it to film videos and it doesn't have a viewfinder that I can see while in front of the camera without just having a mirror behind it and just looking in the mirror. I have a card to connect it to my laptop (windows 10) but I can't work out if I can connect it to my laptop so that I can see what it sees. Is there anyway to that, or do external viewfinders exist so that I can see myself while I film, thanks! Also please be nice I don't really know what 'm doing :)
Is there a setting in the menu to display the lens focal length on the back info screen? I see the W and T at the top of the info screen. I also see the lens focal length displayed if the lens memory is set but when I turn the focal length memory off, the number goes away. I would like to see it all the time, is it possible to do? Thanks for any help
We are definitely just casual photographers, primarily when we travel. Most of our photos are outdoors, landscapes, animals, birds, etc. We MUST have some kind of viewfinder. Using the screen on the back of these cameras is impossible in sunlight. I've been reading about EVF's (Panasonic calls them LVF) but I don't really understand if that will help us in sunlight. It must be small in size and weight. We don't play with the controls very much - and the easier it is to use, the happier...
I copied all photo philes to my computer from the SD card inserted into the computer reader. When I put the card back in the camera there were 10 out of 100 photos that the camera told me it could not read. The photos are all OK on the computer. Anybody have an answer for this?
Hi there, My husband just received his 30 year long service award with the company he is employed with. There are several options re awards one can choose from...one of them being a free camera out of a choice of seven. BUT...we are not in the 'know' so to speak re cameras. Therefore, we have been trying to research the different brands we can choose from...my nephew suggested we check out your website. Not going to lie...we are both OVERWHELMED...and were very excited when we noticed...
