SummaryThe full range of manual exposure control is an asset for anyone wishing to understand serious photographic basics.

Nikon has also removed its GPS functionality in this camera.

But now that Nikon has stalled the production of P520, I think P530 can be a decent alternative for enthusiastic and amateur photographers.

Verdict

The Coolpix P530, priced at Rs 19,950 is a viable choice for amateurs and enthusiasts who are serious about photography, but are hesitant to foray into the overwhelming body / lens options in DSLR markets. Being a notch below mirror-less cameras in price, it won’t burn a hole in your pocket either.

While the focusing speed is a valid complaint for anyone looking at fast moment-based photography, for most situations and everyday subjects, the P530 doesn’t compromise on its image quality and ability to deliver.

The full range of manual exposure control is an asset for anyone wishing to understand serious photographic basics without dropping a fat price for a semi-professional DSLR. All in all, the Nikon Coolpix P530, with its superzoom lens, and low light performance, is a good bet for enthusiasts who are looking to experiment without feeling limited by optical or technical capabilities of their gear.
