Sometimes, the interesting part of a scene is not right next to you at eye level. Perhaps you want to zoom in on an architectural detail of a tall building, or snap photos of colorful birds without scaring them away. The Nikon Coolpix P530 is ready for such times, with a powerful 42X zoom lens built into a compact body. If that bird happens to take flight while you're shooting, never fear — the camera locks in with target-finding autofocus and subject tracking so you can keep the focus where it belongs, even when your subject is in motion. Optical vibration reduction keeps those little tremors from sneaking in and blurring the image when you don't have time to grab your tripod.
Shoot in natural light
Bright daylight is easy to shoot in. But what do you do when you're in a dimly-lit ballroom or photographing city streets at night? The P530's 16-megapixel image sensor works well in low light situations, allowing you to retain the warm, romantic quality of the existing light without using a flash. Then, if you're switching to a portrait in the same environment, you can employ the built-in flash to add a little brightness to your subject's face when you need it.
