Nikon's new P510 superzoom crams 1000mm and 42x optical zoom of super telephoto capability into a compact camera, the longest optical zoom ever stuffed into a compact camera. The P500 the 510's replacing is 36x, and Canon's PowerShot SX40 HS comes in at 35x. The other particulars include a 16.1MP BSI CMOS sensor, a f/3.0-5.6 NIKKOR lens that ranges from 24mm-1000mm (35mm-format equivalent) focal length, ISO to 3200, a 3-inch 921k-dot LCD screen, full 1080p HD video recording, built-in GPS, and 5fps continuous shooting. The 510 also has advanced optical vibration reduction to reduce blur (the P500 only had electronic VR) that's in effect even while recording video.
The Coolpix P510 comes in three colours; black, red and dark grey.
