I have a small Samsung that is my carry in pocket camera. It takes pretty decent pictures, but there are some things I like a bigger camera for. I tend to judge the quality of cameras against my Ricoh 35mmI saved for several years to get. At present I am considering a Nikon Coolpix P510. there is a newer version of it (p520) but according to reviews it seems to have a problem with the auto focus, so I am considering the 510 seriously. Has anyone had experience with one?

I think I got my $70 worth out of my Samsung before the spots started showing up in every picture. My older Nikon is a P70, now the zoom on similar cameras is through the roof compared to it (4 years later??). I find some shots are a bit washed out (too light) on the pocket one, but it is 18x optical zoom, same as the P70. I have captured some great video with the little one; firing a cannon at the fort and the Sleepy Man Banjo Boys playing in a tent at the fort. In general, I am really pleased with it.
The key is the size of the sensor, not the MPixels. Heck, my new iPhone takes pretty good pictures in the scheme of things and somehow they magically appear on my PC!??
