Nikon stretches Coolpix focal-range beyond belief

Za za zoom

Nikon

Nikon clicked into focus today with the launch of the Coolpix P510, a bridge camera that boasts a whopping 42x optical zoom.

The Nikon Coolpix P510 takes the zoom crown off its younger P500 sibling, thanks to a wide-angle Nikkor lens with a stalker-friendly 35mm equivalent of 24mm-1000mm.

This joins hands with a 16.1Mp backside illuminated Cmos sensor, while a tiltable 3in LCD screen shows off results in 921,000-dot resolution.

There's also 1080p video recording with stereo sound, a built-in HDMI connector and GPS capabilities for the forgetful traveller.
