Care Plan for Digital Cameras

A Care Plan protects your digital camera if it develops a fault or breaks down, even as the result of a mishap.

There are two ways to pay for your plan - monthly or fixed term. Paying monthly means you’ll only pay a small amount each month for as long as you want, whereas paying a fixed term is ideal if you just want to pay once and know your product is protected from then on.

Please note, customers selecting a monthly Care Plan will have the payment debited from their chosen card every month

Product details

With outstanding zoom capabilities, an electronic viewfinder and exceptional vibration reduction technology, the Nikon COOLPIX P530 Bridge Camera makes framing and shooting detailed compositions swift and easy.

High quality photos

Offering 16.1 megapixels combined with a low-light CMOS sensor that fills each image with cut-sharp clarity and natural colour. The high performance CMOS image sensor allows you to capture stunning shots in low light without the need of a flash. Capture the moment at concerts, parties and sunsets. A powerful EXPEED C2 image sensor engine provides a responsive operation, high-sensitivity performance and beautiful image quality.

Thanks to Vibration Reduction technology the lens counteracts movement to ensure each image is crisp, sharp and in full focus.

NIKKOR optics

Bolstered with a 42x optical zoom capability, extendable to 84x with Dynamic Fine Zoom, the compact camera gets up close from incredible distance, allowing you to snap far away subjects in unprecedented detail and create attractive background blurring. The legendary NIKKOR glass lens takes you from wide-angle shots to telephoto close-ups.

Movie moments

Capture moments in Full HD with dramatic stereo sound quality, link to an HDTV and playback your videos in dazzling form. A dedicated movie record button gives you instant recording, great for those one-off moments. You can also capture stills during recording and utilise the autofocus and optical zoom when filming.

Smart autofocus

The Smart algorithm AF works by improving focus detection in low light conditions by swiftly locking the subject. Focus peaking in manual focus highlights the image edges in white for intensity adjustment.

The COOLPIX P530 automatically indentifies and focuses the subject for a clearer and sharper shooting experience.

Creative capture

There are plenty of scene modes to explore during your photography adventures. These specialised scene modes offer automatic settings for capturing challenging imagery at just a simple press of the shutter. There are 21 scene modes for optimising camera settings - doing all the hard work for you.

An Auto HDR mode combines two shots snapped at different exposures in a single shutter release, creating an image with wide dynamic range and rich colour gradation.

Shoot spectacular close-up shots with gorgeous background focus in macro shooting - you can capture as close as 1 cm, great for nature shots. A Panorama 360°/180°mode lets you capture stunning landscapes in one breathtaking photo, just pan the camera vertically or horizontally across the scene.

High-speed continuous shooting at 7 fps or up to 200 frames at 1 fps lets you capture the fast-moving action, leaving you to pick the best frame.

You can also customise the function button to suit your photography style.

You'll always need more memory

It is important to have the right memory card for your camera. The memory card will determine how fast an image is saved and how fast an image is uploaded.

If you're shooting high definition videos along with high resolution images then it's best to invest in a high performance memory card. A high performance memory card will get the best out of your photography, ensuring the best continuous shooting speed and high quality data capture.

The Nikon COOLPIX P530 Bridge Camera packs great photography potential in an easy-to-grip and intuitive body.
