p510 is a great camera but the exposure time only 8 sec. . it is really a big shame for such a camera. max shutter speed is 1/4000 not 1/2000

p510 96 and FZ200 68??? hahahahahahahahahaha. Snapsort, you have always been fans of Nikon, but this is a joke, a bad joke.

Awating a reply from Snapsort regarding the scoring of the Coolpix P510 & Lumix FZ200.

Based on the advantages and specs/features of both cameras, the difference in the Snapsort scores (Nikon 98! and Panasonic 66?) is incomprehensible. Just have a look at all the reputable camera reviews (e.g. Photographyblog, Dpreview, Expertreview,Trustedreviews, cnet, digitalcamera, whatdigitalcamera and Cameralab)
