Digital cameras and gaming consoles are the most keenly sought after gadgets of today’s times and that is the sole reason more and more number of companies are coming up with new gadgets every year. Cameras are everyone’s favorite even if someone doesn’t like travelling simply because they let you capture things and live them for a long time to come.
The Nikon Coolpix P500 need s no introduction whatsoever as you would have definitely seen the same over the television in various advertisements. However most of you might not be aware of the specifications of the same. It is always better to know something about the camera yourself when you plan to buy one such device and thus this post would help you know all about the much hyped Nikon Coolpix P500.
Before delving deep into the camera we would have to know the exact specifications of the same. The Nikon Coolpix has a 12 MP camera and has dimensions of 4.6 x 3.3 x 4.1 inches. Some of the other features that the device boasts of include 3 inch varied angle LCD screen, 36x, f3.4-5.7, 22.5-810mm lens, supports JPEG/H.264 AAC, has Image Stabilization, SD/SDHC/SDXC storage media and much more.
Few talking points of the Nikon Coolpix P500 are the solid design, good photo, movie features and good shooting features as well. The electronic viewfinder that the device seems to be enabled with does a pretty good job as well. The camera also has a high speed CMOS sensor, easy to use Menu and controls which seem quite user friendly as well. All these indeed make the Nikon Coolpix P500 a good digital camera to lay your hands upon. However there are certain things that need to be taken special note of which include soft photo and video quality, lacks raw support as well as auto pi cture rotation.
The photo and video quality of the Nikon Coolpix P500 is far better than the previous forms of Nikon cameras. The lens is almost devoid of any form of lag and has no sign of barrel distortion or pincushioning. The camera is good as point-and-shoot camera however the same has no scope of cropping or enlarging the snaps. One should note that the fringing in the camera in high-contrast areas of photos is terrible and this can be mostly spotted when the image is extended out in full. The pictures of the same are vivid and don’t seem artificial, exposure and improving images seems just as easy as the controls itself. It is this reason that most of the people have started showing interest in the Nikon Coolpix P500 all the more.
Nikon Coolpix P500 may not be the best in the business however it still has lots to offer. It is one of those cameras which would either become a favorite among the masses or would simply be hated for its incapability in producing the best snaps around. Although Nikon Coolpix P500 is worth every penny that you shell out yet I believe you should try the other models in the market from different models including Canon and Sony within the same price market to understand to get your hands upon the best.
