Caption: I think the Nikon P100 takes better moon than the Nikon P500. This is the P500. I'm still playing with the P500, trying to decide to keep it.

I just noticed on your latest, Delana, that you have stayed with the 500. I got a 510 last Friday and I'm blown away with what I have asked it to do so far. In fact, I took one shot on Saturday that I (says he humbly :-) ) reckon came out better than one of the same subject shot with a Tamron 200 - 500mm lens. Perhaps I am slightly biased. :-)

PS Here, I think the 100 did a better job, but some of your later ones look pretty good.

In this case, the P100 is better than the P500. Perhaps after a few days you get to practice testing of P500. Ask Suzi, because she has a P500!

A little hard to tell for sure Delana, but I think this one with the P500 has just a bit better detail on the craters, if you look at the bottom area of the moon.
I have seen some great moon photos in the past with both of these cameras. I have seen better moon photos in the past from whichever camera you were using which I believe it was th P100.
I was considering either one, but leaning toward the P500 before I bought my expensive 300 lens for my DSLR. I know you can get more zoom with either one, than I can with my 300 lens + a 1.4 teleconverter. Would have been less money too. Almost went with the P500, but yet I know I would have more fun with the DSLR. I did read someplace, if you zoomed up more than a certain amount, you photo would start to deteriorate. Don't remember what figure, but something like 24X maybe. That is still way more zoom than I can get out of my equipment at the present, which is at best only half the zoom you got on either of these.
