    Default Canon sx260hs or a nikon p510

    We purchased the canon and am trying to decide if the nikon p510 would be a better overall
    choice.The canon with a case and a 32gb memory cost 329.00 target has the nikon coolpix p510
    on sale for 399.00.The ad doesn't say that it comes with a case.What is recommended to purchase
    along with the nikon camera?
    I know the canon is a good camera if you had the choice which one would you choose?
    Thanks in advance for your reply,
    grands

    They are different types of camera. The Canon SX260HS is a pocket-sized ultrazoom with a 20x lens. The Nikon P510 is a larger ultrazoom with a 42x lens. The Canon is probably better in low light but the Nikon offers more in all other respects. The Nikon has a much longer lens, a higher resolution LCD, an LCD that tilts, an electronic viewfinder, a faster lens (with a wider aperture), closer macro ability, a more powerful flash and faster continuous shooting speed.

    Here are some sample pics:

    I think you'll enjoy it, especially its long zoom ability.

    I love the sound of that zoom. But in your opinion, does the image retain much good quality on a camera of that size with a zoom that huge? Or does it start to get noisy?

    Its image quality is surprisingly good, even at long range, through 800 ISO, though its high ISO performance is not quite as good as two of its long-zoom competitors, the Panasonic FZ200 and the Sony HX200v.
