Nikon has recently launched their latest COOLPIX camera, the Nikon COOLPIX P1000. The camera comes as a successor the Nikon COOLPIX P900 which had an incredible 83x optical zoom. The P1000’s earth-shattering 125x optical zoom, makes even the P900’s 83x zoom look a bit tamed.
The Nikon P1000 features a 16 MP 1/2.3-inch sensor which has a focal length range of 24mm wide-angle up to 3000 mm super-zoom. The camera has a f/2.8 lens on top which when optically zoomed up to 125x reduces down to a narrow f/8 aperture.
Thanks to the EXPEED image processor used in the Nikon COOLPIX P1000, it can shoot 4K videos at a frame rate of either 30 fps or 25 fps, in Movie Manual mode. The camera also supports RAW image capture.
As the camera is intended to shoot faraway scenes, it comes equipped with a dedicated Bird-Watching and Moon-shooting settings, embedded into the mode dial. The camera can also record Superlapse and Timelapse videos.
The Nikon COOLPIX P1000 comes with a 3.2-inch 921K-dot vari-angle TFT LCD with 5-level brightness adjustment. On bright sunny days, the 0.39-inch 2359k OLED Electronic Viewfinder with eye sensor comes to the rescue.
For connectivity, the camera has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and has support for Nikon’s Snapbridge image sharing system, which allows users to transfer the images from the camera to their smartphones wirelessly. The camera also comes with an option for external microphone connector.
As for the battery, it uses an EN-EL20a rechargeable Li-Ion battery, that is claimed to provide up to 1 hour 20 mins of video recording time or up to 250 still images.
