I agree....the bag that came with my P520, which I purchased the camera at COSTCO, is a NIKON bag, with the logo and all and essentially equates to carrying a box, no style. Too small for the camera and provides no protection as the camera has to be stuffed into it. As a recommendation, I tried a lot of different bags and found one I really like and fits the camera perfectly. I purchased in Jan. 2014 from Best Buy Electronics store. It was $22.00 (available for a lot less on various web-sites though. It has plenty of storage for everything, good protection and all the reviews I read on it are great...plus it has nice style and many ways to carry, Belt, strap or handle. It is made by "CASE LOGIC" Case #DCB304. It can be checked out on their web-site. Highly recommend!

I got the same case as part of a package from an authorized Nikon dealer. It is too small as it is hard to get the camera in and out much less carry any accessories. The same case we got is on Amazon for $17.95. You can see in the pictures that the camera barely fits. Why would Nikon or Amazon try to sell such a small bag for this camera. I looked on Amazon for something better and ordered one which was supposed to be for a P520. This case didn't fit at all!! I had to return it and I am still looking. I plan to go to the store where I bought the camera and show them the bag and let them know I'm not happy about it. Maybe they will offer me a discount on something better.

Looks like we are not alone with the problem !!! I bought my p520 from a camera store and it also came with a case . Of course the case does not fit and I sent in my question also. Got the standard answer that it's a third party case (even though it came with the p520 kit). Totally annoyed since this is the same darn case they sell on their site !!! Go figure ... Nikon is not hearing a word of what we are saying !!! The case DOES NOT fit ! Hope they have better answers when we have a real issue, because right now I am not impressed with their answer !!!!! Just really annoyed ...,,

I recently purchased my P520 through a Nikon authorized brick and mortar store. The case was included in the package.

The case you pictured above is the same one I received, and I find it challenging to get the camera and strap in, never mind the charging unit and AV cables!

I've found it fits best if you undo the Velcro on the small inside panel and then place the camera facing the back of the case. Fold and stuff the strap and you are ready to go!

So far, I am loving the versatility of this compact camera! Have been out taking pictures every day, no matter what the weather.

Hope you are enjoying yours, too!

I bought my Coolpix P520 from Nikon. They did not provide a "bag."

Perhaps you bought your camera from a camera shop and they threw a "bag" In for you.

Who "gave" you the bag? Maybe they have specifications for that particular bag.

Question

How does manual focus work on the P520?

I keep seeing references to the Nikon P520 that it will have the ability to do a manual focus. Most fixed lens cameras (non-digital SLRs) only have the ability to automatically focus and don't do a good job of this. Things like a screened in window, fencing, or foreground objects will almost always get focus while background objects are nearly impossible to focus on. Can this camera lens be manually focused? If so how? Hopefully with a focusing ring near the base or front of the lens?

Not only can you do manual focusing for still shots, you can also do it for videos. Use P setting for exxmple, set up the manual MF from the bottom of the circular button, and start recording, using the zoom, set up with the lens side button. It's not in the manual, so you will have to try and explore.

Question

Camera Case for Coolpix P520?

I prefer not to use a paper grocery bag. :-)

Since there are no lenses, must there be room for a bunch of accessories?

I would like to have a protective camera case to protect the camera between uses.

please recommend a camera case.

You're correct; all you need is a spare charged battery and memory card. Luckily, my P520 just fit into the Ambico small point and shoot digital camera bag I bought over 10 years ago for my old 3MP Olympus. This bag has a web-clasp closure, a heavy web belt loop, strap loops and detachable shoulder strap, and a handle on top. I actually use all three options in different circumstances. You put the camera in by grasping it normally with the right hand, placing the lens cover against the front wall, then sliding the back into the bag; tuck in the strap and close the flap. It's secure and pretty well protected (and no "rip" of velcro when you open it, to scare off wildlife). To remove it, undo the flap, grasp, and pull, and it's ready to use. The bag is padded, and has a zip close leatherette front pocket, protected by the flap, for accessories (plenty of room for a download cable if you want, or a wireless module). The bag is 6" by 5-1/2" by 3+" deep.

Unfortunately, it's not clear that Ambico makes this bag (or any bag) any more. I found 5 new from one vendor on eBay(mid-ohiotradingcompany), but no other references to this particular bag (black, with gray textured flap, and the word "Ambico" written across the flap just above the clasp). But it gives you an idea what the minimum might be.

MegaGear "Every Ready" makes a great leather case, which is a traditional design which fits the P520 nicely, although a bit bulky. The case screws onto the tripod socket, and a tripod can attached to that. This is very classic going back as much as 100 years. It comes with a lightweight storage bag for the case for when you don't use it.

Question

Does the P520 supports RAW format?

I couldn't find the information yet about if it could store in RAW format or not. The competitor Canon Powershot SX50 HS is similiar to the P520 in price and with some slight different in the Tech Specs.

I am unfamiliar with the tech specs on cameras but I would like to know a couple of specs that you could tell me that got improved in the Nikon Coolpix P520 compared to the Nikon Coolpix P510.

Like why would you recommend me to buy a P520 compared to the P510 (or even the Canon PowerShot SX50 HS)? I did check the comparasion between P520 vs P510 on this site but it looks similiar to me for the most things. So what important feature does the P520 has what the P510 doesn't?

Unfortunately NIKON does not include a carrying case with the P520 and therefore is it difficult to assist without knowing the case that you have. If this is a third party case that was issued to you by the dealer, we suggest you contact the dealer for assistance.

Question

Can the P520 with USB to WiFi be used as a webcam?

Subject: Can the Nikon P520 with USB to WiFi be used as a webcam?

As you know the best webcams are such primitive cameras with such staggeringly poor sound that the P520 could be a huge improvement, with the potential of recording based on motion detection, while perhaps allowing for subsequent zooming into its 18 megapixel images; not just streaming low resolution videos, as a potentially more useful option. All of which are relevant security issues and applications for anyone with a home, apartment, or a place of work, as well as providing a good reason to buy an extra camera.

In fact just sending occasional still images (based on motion detection) as an email would be a good start; or would we need to buy an $800 Samsung Galaxy Note 2 in order to record and transfer an image, however without any motion detection capacity, since the USB port on the Galaxy would be used to connect to the router, or perhaps we would use the USB port for an external motion detector, instead of looking at the pixels.

The problem we found with existing low resolution web or security cameras is that the emails fail to be transmitted correctly, even though D-Link and others make reliable routers. Apparently, the experienced software people did not work on the web or security cameras. Naturally, you could see the exceptional complexity and cost involved in using an external Android device for a such simple yet common application. Of course, if you allowed the Android to download software into a Nikon camera, that also could address such issues, without creating a constantly evolving application burden for Nikon.

While this is a huge photographic area that is not being well addressed (except in factory environments), it is however a place where new and eventually all used Nikon cameras could be put to use in people’s homes, offices or driveways, to significantly reduce the chance of violence and thefts, apparently in over 150 countries, where governments prefer to not be of any significant help.

A third party makes an adapter which will hold a 67mm filter or lens hood. It is a compression fit over the end of the lens and does not interfere when the camera is powered down.

Question

What is the limit of the estimate of remaining pictures which can be taken on the P520?

Since we're going an a vacation soon, I decided to go crazy and get a class 10 64GB SanDisk SDXC card for the P520. Cameras today estimate how many photos you can take with the remaining capacity of the card. With the brand new card installed, the P520 says I have 9999 photos left. Is this a realistic number, or the limit of the camera's ability to estimate?

Also, I did not format the card in the camera, figuring the P520 would tell me to do so. The card seems to be working just fine without formatting for the P520. I'm not worried about this, as I have used the camera to re-format the card a couple times since then, just to get rid of bad test shots. I just thought this was interesting.

Question

Will the Coolpix P520 have accept filters or a filter adapter?

I know the P510 has many special effects, and perhaps the P520 has even more, but I'm wondering if the lens will accept screw-on filters or make available a filter adapter.

For Coolpix510 i use 67mm Adapter Ring / Adaptor Ring for Nikon P510, 58mm Adapter Ring / Adaptor Ring for Nikon P510 and KIWI lens adapter for Nikon COOLPIX P510 Digital Camera 67mm. I think the same can be used with COOLPIX P520.

Question

How do I make A DVD from movies recorded on my P520?

I am not a camera pro but I assumed making a DVD from videos recorded on my new P520 would be a no brainer. Seeing a question asked in this forum leads me to believe this is not so. What's the deal? Do I have to download and use file conversion software to end up with a DVD?

View NX 2 does have a movie editor for clips that are taken with the Nikon COOLPIX P520, however with this software a DVD cannot be created with the software. This requires third party software. Nikon cannot offer support or advice on third party products. You will need to get in contact with the manufacturer of the third party equipment for compatibility information with our products.

The en-el5 is a 100mAH battery, it is suggested you only use a genuine Nikon battery. A non Nikon battery may damage your camera and void the warranty.

No, Coolpix P520 does not have an orientation sensor, However, images taken using face detection, or pet detection will be rotated automatically when displayed in full frame playback mode according to the orientation of the face. The orientation of a picture can be change using image rotate in the playback menu.
