    It’s very risky to have a point and shoot camera without manufacturer warranty, but Sir, I also like to live dangerously 🙂

    • eBay resellers basically have a better supply chain than Nikon USA 🙂

      • Aldo

        That’s what I was thinking… I mean they could barely keep up the demand with full warranty sellers and they are dumping them at gray? hay caramba nikon.

        • Yeah, I don’t get it. Why on earth do they see the need to do this when many have been clamoring for it for a year?

        • Omar Salgado

          ¡Ay, caramba!

          Hay is the conjugation in present of the verb haber.

          De nada.

      I believe it’s now in generally stock. For $50 more you can have a Nikon warranty, although nowadays you wonder if a third-party warranty covers you better…

      • Aldo

        I’d be interesting to hear a story from someone who is covered by third party warranty when they actually have an issue. All I hear is that they ‘replace’ but not that they actually ‘fix’ an issue. Also on ebay gray sellers claim to cover the camera with their own warranty… I also wonder how that goes when someone actually has an issue with the camera.

        • Spy Black

          I was being mostly cynical, but somewhat curious. 😉

  • Jebagi Erol Paker

    Iwanted to give it to my wife as a Christmas present but she suspected that I am buying it as my toy and additionally she did not like its hefty zoom extension.

    • Aldo

      Thats why nikon should make more cameras in pink

  • Ritvar Krum

    why is there is the fuss about this camera:

    1/2.3″ sensor, big and heavy ass point&shoot… that costs more than any nikon DX camera (except for one – D7200) ??

    • David Weinehall

      Could it because of… ehhh… the zoom, maybe?

      • Aldo

        Guess not everyone knew this… yeah you could have taken a picture of Neil Armstrong on the moon (from earth) with this camera.

        • Zoot

          “One small step for a man… one giant stride for a p900…”

          But, hey, did that flag just flutter in the breeze, or was it merely camera shake in movie-record?

          All 46 years too late, alas…

      I saw a ski instructor/trainer at a recent World Cup event with one of these.

      These guys are not necessarily interested in IQ from FX/DX cameras. They are also not bothered with the size and weight. Carry a couple of skis on your shoulders and you will understand.

      They need reach.

      Go and stand somewhere/anywhere on a ski piste and see how much reach you need to get a skier in frame.

      Now replace ski with a number of other sports where things are far and move fast.

      It never ceases to amaze me how some people think that the only form of photography is the type that they do.

      • Exactly this. I’ve shot skiing and kite surfing with the Tamron 150-600, and wound up cropping most of what I shot significantly. Not to mention it was a beast to haul up and down the mountain, the P900 would be so much easier especially for a non-professional. I can’t imagine trying to shoot snows ports with big telephoto primes.

        Also LOL to people talking about ‘useable.’ All most people want to do with their photos is stick them on FB and get their 37 likes, plus a half dozen ‘awesome’ and ‘looking goo!’ comments. That is the purpose of the photo to the consumer. The P900 is perfectly adequate for that.

        • Kyle

          Exactly this.
          Also, the mom comments above. These get put on FB, Instagram, and Twitter these days. No one cares about the actual quality.
          It’s “good enough” for 95% of the people out there.
          We are the 5% on here and in the forums.
          I was out shooting high school Fall Formal pics at this popular scenic location a couple weeks ago. I had my D750 w/ 70-200 F2.8. Out of the dozens and dozens of parents there, all but 1 other person had a DSLR…. they all were shooting with phones and point and shoots.

    • MonkeySpanner

      That small sensor is pretty much the only way you can get the zoom range this camera has. And yes, to some that zoom range makes the camera worth the money.

    • It’s <$600 and you can take great shots of birds or animals. There's a huge market for that. The reach of the zoom is what this camera is about.

  • Hardcore_Fanboy

    IQ is soo poor that Nokia phone camera looks better…
    2000mm with a phone size sensor that makes iso 400 is baerly unusable – how you gonna reduce shake? cuz there is no way that you gonna get fast shutter speed wit that F6.3 (except for middday sun)

    • Which nokia camera gives you 2000mm native zoom? Just check reviews before you complain about quality. And 1/2 thirds sensor is phone size? The VR for this camera is latest and newest tech which is implemented first in this camera. Give nikon some credit. And last but not the least, having something is better than having nothing….. because something worth having costs much more than one can afford.

      • Aldo

        This happens when people only read about cameras but never actually use them.

  • russ

    B&H got a supply yesterday. I ordered one for my wife. She wants a camera that lets her “see things farther away” than the 3-year-old Lumix 20x superzoom she’s been using, “isn’t too heavy”, and is “automatic.” She is decidely not a pixel peeper. It appears that Nikon made exactly the camera she wants. There are a lot more people like her than like me when it comes to needs for photographic equipment. I’m glad Nikon has something that appeals to them.

  • chrisgull

    Nikon USA has it in stock for $599.

  • T.I.M
