Nikon Coolpix P510 Digital Camera Review$429.95
The P510 earned a strong chromatic aberration score, but looking at the fringing on our resolution crops, it's obviously a case of hot-and-cold performance. It's excellent in some parts of the frame and awful in others. The problematic areas, no surprise, seem to be toward the edges and corners.
This is a pretty common phenomenon with superzoom cameras, though this is a particularly strong case. Just keep in mind that this score is an average; in real-world use, it's going to produce noticeable aberration at times.
Distortion is not a problem with the P510. We measured 0.76 percent barrel distortion at the wide angle setting, which is right on the cusp of what is visible to the human eye. At the middle and telephoto settings, the pincushioning is so slight that it's impossible to see without actively looking for it.
