Size and weight is a big decision factor when you are trying to find the ideal camera for your needs.
In this section, We are going to illustrate Nikon P530 and Nikon P520 side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Nikon P530 has external dimensions of 123 x 84 x 98 mm (4.83 x 3.31 x 3.87″) and weighs 494 g (including batteries). Nikon P520 has external dimensions of 125 x 84 x 102 mm (4.92 x 3.31 x 4.02″) and weighs 550 g (1.21 lb / 19.40 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Nikon P530 and Nikon P520. Nikon P530 is 2mm narrower and 4mm thinner than Nikon P530 but they have the same height of 84mm.
Here is the back view size comparison of Nikon P530 and Nikon P520.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Nikon P530 and Nikon P520.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Nikon P530 is 56g lighter than the Nikon P520 but we don't think this will make a significant difference.
Unfortunately neither Nikon Coolpix P530 nor Nikon Coolpix P520 provides any type of weather sealing in their body, so you have to give extra care especially when you are shooting outdoors. If weather sealing is a must-have feature for you, check these sections: Top Bridge Cameras with Weather Sealing
LCD Screen Size and Features
Nikon P520's 3.20" LCD screen is slightly larger than Nikon P530's 3" screen.
Moreover, Nikon P520 sports a Fully Articulated screen
which you can change the angle and position of the screen almost freely, making it possible to shoot from waist or over the head levels, and especially very useful for shooting selfies and video. On the other hand, Nikon P530 has a fixed type screen which provides almost no flexibility in shooting positions compared to P520.
