    And what is the explanation for the long absence? Regardless, it is a great camera!

    • dclivejazz

      Whoa. Speaking of long absences. Welcome back.

    • High demand, low production?

      • Rosemary’s Crybaby

        Low demand, no production?

      • whisky

        yip … a radical product which quickly caught fire. the question is: was this a lucky innovation or part of a new trend?

        • Andrew

          Actually, it is neither luck nor part of a new trend. It is Nikon flexing its technology muscle and coming out with an ultrazoom camera that beats the competition. I bought a Panasonic 16x zoom camera some years past, and another Panasonic 60x ultrazoom camera about two years ago, and all of a sudden this Nikon P900 camera with its 83x optical zoom (2,000mm) makes my Panasonic ultrazoom camera obsolete. The image quality from the P900 is significantly better than the Panasonic 60x camera which is quite surprising.

          The Nikon 800mm f/5.6E professional zoom lens is selling for $18,000 and its reach is limited. But for only $599, the P900 is quite a bargain. The optical quality of the P900’s lens is quite impressive providing sharp pictures and rich “true-to-life” colors. The press is using words like impressive and amazing to describe this camera because of its high image quality. And its image stabilization works quite well.

          The P900’s appeal will be quite broad from vacationers to sports fans and soccer moms, including nature photographers alike. What surprised me is that it may take away sales from lower cost DSLR cameras like the Nikon D3300 though it is not really a replacement for DSLR cameras especially in extremely low lighting situations.

            for a while i was wondering whether that “technology muscle” had atrophied. 🙂

            the P900’s success may have more to do with this camel walking into the eye of a needle . it’s Nikon’s “hallelujah moment”. whether it was by accident or design is yet too early to tell … JMO.

          • fjfjjj

            I did not know the Nikon P900 camera had a 2 meter focal length.

            • Andrew

              I should not have included the comma, thanks.

      • Andrew

        Quite possible. About a year ago a Nikon executive spoke about a surprising consumer product and I have since been waiting to see what that product would be. This looks like it, and as such they may have limited its production to make certain that the technology works: an amazing optical reach with advanced image stabilization. In fact this camera seems to have caught you by surprise as I do not remember seeing any rumors on it. And I think that the fact that it is taking such amazing pictures of the moon may be one of the WOW factors Nikon was thinking about as likely to be a surprise to consumers.

  • Took a chance, hoping for best. Rumors about Amazon is they won’t have it until after September 21.

    D900 UPDATE
    The D900 will have a twin brother the D900T, designed for video use (but both have 4K video)
    The one oriented for video will have a wireless stereo microphone receiver and 2 wireless microphone included and few other video accessories.
    More details next Tuesday

    • jvossphoto

      Will it have a tilting LCD T.I.M.?

      • T.I.M

        The D900 won’t, I don’t know if the D900T will have one, does it help having a tilting LCD for videos ?
        (I only take pictures)

        • jvossphoto

          I only take pictures too but it would be very handy for low compositions and macro work with live view. It would be a blessing for my lower back issues.

          • T.I.M

            LOL you should try my AF-I 400mm f/2.8 !
            6.3kg !

          • T.I.M

            I had a Nikon DSLR (can’t remember witch one) with a tilting LCD, I did not like it, feels like a toy.
            :o(

    • T.I.M

      The wireless microphone receiver is “in body” not mounted on the flash support like my bulky Sony receiver.
      :o)

    • Fritz Asuro

      Weird you’re the one sharing this and not NR itself. Anyway, let’s say you are reliable.

      I have a question then, is the D900 gonna be a D810 succesor? Or a new line of camera?

      • T.I.M

        I have not see the D900 yet (not even in pictures) but it have a 48mp sensor with cleaner ISO so I guess it can be considered as a new line.
        I think the shape will be same as the D800/810 and they will probably share many parts because the D900 is “only” $3500
        A new body design would have put the price much higher.

          If you can’t be bothered fixing the English in your posts, why should anyone believe anything you have to say. To paraphrase Truman Capote; it’s not writing, it’s just typing.

          • Although I too consider myself a grammar nazi, I would say here,” appreciate the sentiment and not the typo”. Besides since when has it been decided that good writing is a sign of truthfulness and bad writing cannot be trusted to be true?
            P.S. In these times of mobile posting, one needs to be a little lenient about silly mistakes.

            • mikeswitz

              He is posting unsubstantiated rumors. If he can’t be bothered to re-read what he just wrote before he posts, why would anyone believe what he has to say is even remotely accurate?

            • I don’t know where TIM hails from but internet forums has made me understand that english may not be the first language of the other person. So no harm in cutting some slack. Also like I said before, phone typing has increased the spelling and grammar mistakes. These days I just feel thankful reading posts with minimal mistakes and fully written words. One feels like puking seeng the some youngsters type these days.
              P.S. Unsubstantiated rumours — Oxymoron.
              Kudos to NR for giving us substantiated rumours.

            • mikeswitz

              Unsubstantiated rumors= rumors posted as facts. Agree about posts from English as second language posters. I don’t think that is the case here, though.

        • I somehow doubt that it would be named a D900 then. If it would just be a successor of D810 (with the specs you are sharing to me) – the next number D820 would suit it more.

          I would expect a D900 to be a different camera. Like a 20-25MP with good ISO performance and fast shutter speed (but not cannibalizing the D4s/D5)

          To be honest, though your information of D900 coming out soon sounds fishy to me. You might be right in the same way as cameras just do upgrade. It is easy to logically predict what might be next, the same way most fortune teller shows their customers what’s their future.

            It would not make sense for Nikon to come out with a new line of 24 MP cameras, they have enough as it is (whether DX or FX).

            All of their 24 MP cameras D3300, D5500, D7200 will not grow in pixel count. DX needs as much low light performance as you can get, so constricting it with a greater pixel density would not be wise. And of course the high-end D400 DX camera will be 24 MP and be announced around January 2016. It will be a high frame rate camera.

            The FX line: The D810 series at 36 MP will not grow in pixel count. The D750 may inch up a bit above 24 MP thought that may not make sense as it would impact its awesome low light performance. Now releasing a new line with the smaller D750 body and ergonomics and the D810’s 36 MP sensor may be a smart move.

            With regards to the D900, Nikon would not waste the name for another 24 MP sensor. The D900 will have a 48 MP sensor (or greater) which will make sense.

      • T.I.M

        maybe Peter already know about it but can’t talk about it yet !

        • sure, that’s why I run a website called nikonrumors… I remember your previous prediction and they were all wrong if I am not mistaken

          • T.I.M

            LOL !
            You made my day !
            So when is the D900 coming ?

      • T.I.M. has a history of not been right, so there is no reason for me to post it online

        • Though rumors are simply rumors. I have high expectation whenever I see it posted by NR itself. I was just wondering what was T.I.M. was talking about.
          Thanks NR.
