PhotographyBLOG Reviews the Nikon Coolpix P50

Nikon Coolpix P50

PhotographyBLOG’s Gavin Stoker writes, “If you’re looking for an inexpensive snapper that marries ease of use to reliability under most conditions, then the Nikon Coolpix P50 ticks a fair proportion of the right boxes.”

The not-so-compact P50 is an 8-megapixel camera with a wide-angle 28-102mm equivalent (3.6X) zoom, 2.4-inch LCD and ISO 64-2000 light sensitivity at a price that won’t break the bank.

Gavin quips that the Coolpix P50 resembles “a camera that costs more than it actually does – so first impressions are good, and as we all know, first impressions stick. You can’t expect miracles at this price, and sure enough the P50 doesn’t deliver them. But it does provide a fair smattering of colour and detail given its 8 megapixel resolution, better handling of tricky exposures than expected, and boasts the advantage of that wide angle lens and broader than average (for a compact) focal range.” It got 4 out of 5 stars, a Recommended rating.
