The 42x-zooming Nikon P510 boasts the world's longest zoom range and the longest focal length.

Video Review

Introduction

Nikon sure puts the "zoom" in superzoom. Nobody had even caught up to the 36x lens in last year's Coolpix P500, but the new P510 pushes the bar out even further: out to 42x, with a staggering and symbolic 1000mm telephoto focal range. The sensor also gets upgraded to a 16.1-megapixel BSI CMOS 1/2.3-inch chip, and Nikon threw in some on-board GPS for good measure, too.

The P510 would be a strong buy on the length of its zoom alone—that's how its predecessor succeeded, despite middling image quality. But Nikon got a lot of other stuff right this time around. Read on to see why the P510 works.

The Nikon Coolpix P510 is available now in black and red for a suggested price of $429.95.
