Nikon P500

The Nikon P500 is 12.1-megapixel superzoom camera, featuring a massive 36x optical zoom lens.  Along with the high-res stills, the P500 gives you the ability to capture 1080p HD video.

With a broad feature set and fast performance, the P500 is a jack of all trades that’s begging to tag along on vacation or sports outings. [click to continue…]

Nikon P500

I’ve been trying out the Nikon Coolpix P500 for a couple of weeks or so now.  Similar to its predecessor, the P100, the Nikon P500 captures VGA-quality video at 120fps and QVGA-quality at 240fps.  While both are fun, I find the 120fps at VGA’s 640 x 480 resolution much more practical for sharing on TV sets or online.

Below is a short sample of some clips I shot at both frame rates.  Note that the 240fps footage has been up-rezzed in post from its native 320 x 240 resolution to standard VGA 640 x 480 resolution in order to match the 120fps frame size.
