Nikon Coolpix P530: 42 facts and highlights

1. megapixels

2. sensor size

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.

3. focus points

The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.

4. continuous shooting at high resolution

Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.

5. maximum light sensitivity

With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.

6. longer battery life

CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.

7. video recording

8. has a stereo microphone

A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.

9. fastest shutter speed

A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.

10. width

15. screen size

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.

16. Can create panoramas in-camera

It allows you to take multiple photos capturing different parts of the scene, and then joins them together into a single photo.

17. has AF tracking

With AF tracking, once you choose the subject and press the shutter release part way down, as the subject moves, the autofocus will follow it. No more out of focus shots.

18. has a two-stage shutter

A two-stage shutter is good for taking photos like a pro; apply pressure to the button in order for the lens to focus, and then press it fully to capture the photograph.

19. has a flash

A flash is good for low-light environments, and can sometimes be used as flashlight.

20. Has an electronic viewfinder

An electronic viewfinder (or EVF) is a small display showing the image. Benefits of these over optical viewfinders include: they show more of the image, they can be more compact, focusing is easier with digital zoom, and they can also sometimes have extra info on the display, eg. a live histogram.

22. has a BSI sensor

A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.

23. optical zoom

The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.

24. has a CMOS sensor

CMOS image sensors are slowly replacing CCD sensors, due to reduced power consumption and better image quality. They can be very compact and cost relatively little to produce.

25. widest aperture

With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
