Nikon Coolpix P1000 camera additional coverage (including insane zoom test videos)

Nikon Coolpix P1000 camera (pre-order here) additional coverage – first, check out this insane P1000 125x zoom video test where you can see the light pole on top of that tall building:

This is how the 125x extended zoom lens looks like:

Nikon Coolpix P1000 – what you need to know (dpreview):

  • 125X optical zoom (24-3000mm equivalent)
  • 1cm macro focus
  • Dual Detect Optical VR
  • 16-megapixel BSI-CMOS 1/2.3″ sensor
  • 4K UHD video
  • EVF and LCD
  • 250 shots per charge, weight: 1,415g (3lb 2oz)

Nikon P1000 first look video by B&H:

We really need to focus on that lens, as there isn’t anything else on the market that can give you anything close. It is a 125x optical zoom NIKKOR Super ED lens and features five stops of Dual Detect Optical VR image stabilization to help you out when you start reaching out to those far out focal lengths. The lens barrel also features a control ring for a more tactile shooting experience when controlling certain settings and there is a tele/wide zoom switch for easy, intuitive control. And, with this long a lens there are some obvious subjects, such as wildlife and astrophotography, which is why Nikon has added some dedicated Bird and Moon modes to help capture more stunning photos. (B&H Photo)

In person, the biggest difference between the P1000 and its predecessor is size. Weighing in at three pounds two ounces, the P1000 is more than a full pound heavier than the one pound 15 ounce P900, and measuring 5.8 x 4.7 x 7.2 inches versus 5.5 x 4.1 x 5.5 inches for the P900, it’s noticeably larger too. But the real eye-opener is when you use the P1000’s power zoom to extend its lens all the way out, at which point that 125X zoom lens really shows its dominance. (Gizmodo)
