    I am seriously contemplating buying the above camera. Please can you tell me if the printed version of the book is yet available? If not, when will it be available and where can one purchase it?

    Many thanks.

      Hello — The book has gone to the printer, and I expect to receive the proof copy today. If it looks okay, it will be approved today and should start showing up for sale at later this week, probably by Thursday or Friday. I will be posting more information as the book becomes available through various channels.

      I recently bought this camera and love it. I have a Nikon D80, but it is very heavy and then you have to lug around the extra lenses. Not so with this camera. Although it doesn’t fit in your pocket, it is lightweight and is an absolute miracle with that 42x lens. I took it to the mountains recently and had a great time with it. I would suggest buying the extra charger and battery because it seemed to discharge faster than my other Nikons, but it is a new camera for me and maybe I was just not doing something right. I did buy the car charger and extra batteries, though. Buy it and have a lot of fun. I think this will be the camera I use on a regular basis.

        Hi, Sharon — I certainly agree! The P510 is really a great all-around camera when you want to have just one, lightweight camera with a terrifically versatile lens and set of features. I’m glad you’re enjoying it!

      Hello — I can’t give a really definite answer, because I have never seen an L810 and don’t know about all of its features. I took a look at its description, and I see that it came out at about the same time as the P510 and has a strong zoom lens also, so there probably is a good deal in common between the cameras. There is a good chance that quite a few of the menu options are the same or similar. If you already have the camera, you might want to take a look at the Table of Contents for the P510 book and see if it covers many of the topics you would need for your camera.

    I just purchased the P510 last month and came with the printed book. It is an amazing camera. I have a Minolta Dimage, a Lumix FZ40 and now the Nikon P510. Each camera is used for many different resons but the Nikon sure is my favorite for now. Buy with confidence.

    hai all,
    I am also having one for the past two years.
    There is one deficiency in the camera (P510). We cannot mount extra flash as there is no hot shoe for it, even no socket for flash triggering.
    Friends, any body please guide me for using extra flash. Pl mail me to

      You can use the built-in flash of the Coolpix P510 camera to trigger an external flash with an optical slave. You can use either a separate optical slave device attached to an external flash unit, or an external flash unit with a built-in optical slave capability. The optical slave should have a setting that allows it to ignore the pre-flashes fired by the P510. A couple of excellent units are the Yongnuo YN560 III and the LumoPro LP180, both of which are available through and elsewhere. The camera should be set to Manual exposure mode; you can determine the proper exposure settings with a few test shots.
