This 42x super zoom camera is the new member of the Coolpix family. It has been build with previous sibling’s quality and design. Though it is heavy, it has a rubberized grip so it offers a feeling that it is secure in hands. It can be used in one hand even though it is big in size.

It has a shutter release button that is wrapped with the zoom out and zooms in button.

The electronic viewfinder of this camera doesn’t have the eye-sensor, so we have to press the button every time we need to use it. At the bottom, there is a slot for the SD card.


The camera performs very well with its ½.3 inch sensor. The camera shots can image with fine details. The images have no visible barrel or distortion and with excellent sharpness. Even though the chromatic aberration is rarely visible.

With its 16MP, the camera gives true color and with a good detail. If the zoom is used fully 100%, it gives a smooth images. The high sensitivity sensor works well in low light too. After ISO 800 is producing some distraction and the ISO 1600 is decent and the ISO 3200 gives noise with a substandard picture quality.  It is capable to take micro shots with 1 cm distance.

The missing feature is the GPS geo tagging and as there is no GPS so no location mapping. The camera is powered with an 1100mAh rechargeable Li-ion battery. So we can use it for 215+ shots depending upon the style of shooting. You can buy this camera for 19,950rs from Amazon or you can go to any of the free classifieds like olx, quirk so you get deals if you buy it directly from the dealers.

This camera will be a viable choice if you are serious about photography.
