With a zoom that's both remarkably wide and extremely long, the Nikon P500 exceeds all expectations in a long zoom digital camera with only a few optical compromises. This is the camera you grab when you don't want to heft the SLR and a bag full of lenses.
The Nikon P500 takes only 1.5 seconds to power on and take a shot. That's very fast for an ultra-zoom camera.
Full autofocus shutter lag is very fast, at 0.158 second at wide angle and 0.119 second at full telephoto; faster than most DSLRs....

Awesome Camera. Loved It :)

Loved this camera. As usual, flipkart service was great and packaging was very good. Received the product exactly on the date expected (on my birthday). So here is my experience with this camera.

This camera is great if u can use it properly. U need to knows the settings and the environment so as to adjust your camera to get the best picture quality. It even takes awesome pics in low light conditions. I read a lot of reviews and found a number of bad reviews regarding this product. But still...

The decision to buy Nikon P500 was taken after a long research. Wanted to buy a SLR but the simplicity of this camera caught my eye. Its so easy to use and the results are really good.

This was my first major order through Flipkart. Earlier orders were books and DVDs only. So i was a little apprehensive to be honest.

The camera was deliverd to me in three days in pristine condition with everything as listed on the site. Got a 2 GB Go Gear USB player with it for free.

Kudos to Flipkart T...

Great Product:-)

I was looking for a SLR when this Cam caught my eye.
The features offered are pretty high and to-operate its pretty simple.
Not to mention the weight...its damn light compared with SONY HX100V(the only match in its category).
P500 stands out due to its wide viewing angle (handy in sight-seeing locations).

Thanks to Flipkart for their great service and the prompt delivery!
Wish they bring-in more product categories:-P

Good Camera

Camera with cool feature, using it for last 6 months no issues. Only problem is with high zoom when you need a more stable hand though the image stabilizer is available but still it takes time to get a clear image.

Very low Image Quality

I bought it last week thru flipkart. Disappointing. No clarity in viewing in actual size. I can take photos from far distance. But poor clarity.
Even in Scene-Closeup photos dont give any details/clarity.
Video looks good.

Cool Pics..!!

An excellent ultra-zoom, bridge camera which helps in learning advanced photography.

Have been using this product for almost 3 years now. Really excellent.

P500 has 12.1 megapixels which is more than enough to get a very good photo quality. The main advantage is it has 36x zoom, which is very usually to shoot far away things with utmost clarity. The only thing is, when at full zoom, there is little shake when used with bare hands, but this can be avoided using a tripod.

It has various sc...
