I am just wondering how the image quality compares with the bigger brother p600. Also is the panorama the same quality. Also do you need a tripod like the p600 and did it have the same focusing issues. How does the image quality compare with the canon sx50.

I just purchased the p530 as an upgrade from my p80.  I was curious about if my batteries are the same? They look identical and I like the charger for my p80 where you don’t have to charge within the camera itself.  I’m charging it now, I hope it holds up to the quality my p80 has! The only reason I upgraded was due to the 1080p video and bigger zoom! I go to a lot of concerts and my p80 takes terrific pics but videos were something to lack!!  Will write a better review after I’ve had chance to practice

I just bought p530 with intentions of using it to take pictures at my sons rodeo indoor arena. What settings can I use, and do I need a tripod?

I just received the Nikon P530 and noticed that when I move it, it kind of feels like something is moving ever so slightly inside (not sure if it’s where the lens is). I’m wondering if this is normal. Thanks.

I thought I would upgrade from P520 and P510, but I found myself going a long way backward. the features are pretty much the same, but, the veiwfinder is fixed, whereas the P520 swivels all directions. Rather stick to the P520, a lot more versatile. Without the swivel veiwfinder the P530 should be a lot cheaper, but in fact it costs a lot more.

Nicole S did you ever clarify what moves inside your camera and whether it is a normal feature? Mine does the same…

Carl D,
don’t worry. Cameras with a sensor tilt Feature (for the image Stabilisation) ususally do this.

Hi Debra Rohman. Did Nikon ever sort out your battery problem. I am still having the same problem with my camera. I have sent the camera back for repairs twice in 6 months and have only had the camera for 7 months. Still the same problem. I have given up on Nikon

Concerning my comment yesterday concerning the issue that I was experiencing with the battery problem. This has been resolved by Nikon and the camera is in perfect working condition
Thanks nikon
