Specs: nikon, P520
We bought Nikon coolpix P520 in dec 2013. According to other reviewers, Same thing happened after 18months. ...we were on holiday, left it on charge whole night, & did not switch on. Took it to shop, was sent for repair abroad, & they said they changed its software. Now, same thing is happening, but not covered by guarantee. Was this a common problem for this camera, & is it discontinued ? Maybe it was a faulty make

Well if it was bought in 2013 it will definitely be a discontinued model now as no digital camera model these days has a 3-year production run, technology changes too fast for that. 18 months is the average for any particular model to stay in production.

Nikon make some fine cameras in their range of removable-lens models (SLR cameras) but not so hot with point-and shoot cameras. Same story with Canon.

Consider buying an Olympus model or a Fujifilm model if you want a point-and-shoot pocket camera. I bought my wife a Fujifilm 10 years ago and it's still working as good as ever, never needed any repairs and it has never let her down.

When choosing a point-and shoot camera you have to resist the temptation to assume that Nikon or Canon make the best ones. For big cameras they are the best, but for pocket-size cameras you have to look at other quality brands.
