From hands on at Best Buy ...very large swivel ...should be used with care...and it is full swivel.I read focus could be slow,tele focus hunting.But this camera, as the Canon SX40/50HS and the Nikon P520 are both maybe about equal.My bet is on the Canon...but,if she wants to post on Nikonian...the P520 will be much better.For about $300.00 you can get the older,very compitant 40,possably with other goodies...extra battery,nice card....But,for father/daughter bonding ; I say the P520.Oh - out at 1000mm has more CA than I'd like,and I read much purple frindging.Also note;for me -the P520 is better...for panos and secondary 8mp;BUT KNOW THE P510 IS ABOUT THE SAME FOR ALL THAT'S IMPORTANT.;@ about $100.00 less!NEW!I don't remember if the P510 HAS the full side swivel.
