i have this camera and its actually nice. the only problem with this camera is that it ‘shakes’ when you zoom.
rest everything is just perfect.
good for learning basic photography.

Hi,  I am looking for a camera to take pictures of my kids in sports both outside and in the gymnasium.  The one I have always comes out with dark pictures even with the flash.  Does anyone know if this camera is a good option for this and if the flash will keep up when zooming out?  I have an opportunity to buy one at a decent price and don’t know much about cameras/photography.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.  Thank you

I use p500 and canon sx40. nikon p500 is good, but my complaints about p500 compared to canon are:
lower quality in high Iso 800 up
less informative screen and cannot emulate the result before taking pics. sx40 can do that.
battery could be better. sx40 is much longer
other than above, p500 is superb in lower iso and lightweight camera better for travelling than sx40

I am using this camera for the last 3 years and doing quite well. The only problem I am facing is at the time of taking night picture. Can anybody help me what will be the setting for taking night picture for indoor and outdoor photography.

At the extreme telephoto ,the camera is shaking heavily and the pictures are getting totally blurred.
What to do? Also freezing isnt possible in indoors.
Please suggest
