This is the Nikon COOLPIX P520, a high-performance superzoom digital camera which supersedes the Nikon P510 and was announced on Jan 29, 2013:

The mid-range 18.1 MP (megapixel) P520 is fitted with a 1/2.3-inch back-illuminated (BSI, or backside illumination) CMOS sensor, and records Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) movies with stereo sound.

GPS capability is built right into the camera — this functionality tags photos with geolocation information, and lets you log where you’ve been and explore points of interest.

The 42x, f/3-5.9 image-stabilized VR (Vibration Reduction) lens on the P520 has a 35mm equivalent zoom range of 24-1000mm.

The P520 comes equipped with an articulating rear LCD preview screen.

Sample photos and videos

The official P520 sample gallery at Nikon Imaging has a couple of sample photos, the first two of which are at full resolution. There is also a sample movie, which I think has very good image quality.
