Posted by: Mark Peters

At the CP+ Camera & Photo Imaging Show, held in Japan at the beginning of this year, Nikon introduced 9 new digital cameras, including the Nikon P500. The 12.1 megapixel Nikon P500 belongs to the Performance series, which is Nikon´s most extensive series of digital cameras. The Nikon P500 megazoom camera has a zoom range of a mere 22.5mm ultra wide-angle to 810mm super-tele. With the 36x super-zoom function, a subject can easily be shot at a close range, which is ideal for sport or nature photography. The Nikon P500 camera became available last month for the suggested retail price of 430,00 Euro.

Next to the super-zoom function, the Nikon P500 camera is equipped with a tilting LCD screen. The 3" LCD screen can be tilted 90˚ upwards and 82˚ downwards. Full HD videos are effortlessly displayed on the high resolution screen. Slow motion and speed up video recordings can be shot with the new Nikon P500 megazoom digital camera. Another handy feature is that a picture can be shot at any moment while shooting video. Another nice addition is taking panorama photos, in 180˚ as well as 360˚. The Nikon P500 is an easy to use digital camera with interesting features.

The Nikon P500 is equipped with a 12.1 megapixel CMOS image sensor with back lighting. This increases the amount of light that shines on each pixel, which improves sensitivity and decreases noise. This makes it possible to shoot photographs under any type of lighting conditions with the Nikon P500. Even blurry photos are a thing of the past with the Nikon P500, thanks to seven functions that automatically prevent blurry photographs, such as Hybrid VR (advanced vibration reduction) and the Best Shot Selector (which automatically selects the best shot out of 10 consecutive shots). Nice pictures can be made with the Nikon P500 camera even at night, thanks to Night portrait and Night landscape.
