The new Nikon Coolpix P1000 is the father of zooms in cameras
...with an amazing 125x zoom lens
Nothing beats having a galileoscope and a camera encompassed in one. The Nikon Coolpix P1000 Is lording it over the tools in photography.
Nikon’s P1000 has a 125x zoom lens Which makes it The zoom king in photography. There’s a saying in photography world that suggests you “zoom with your feet,” but I don’t imagine any of its adherents ever conceived of the Nikon Coolpix P1000. Nikon’s latest camera has a lens with the world’s highest zoom ratio: at 24-3000mm equivalence, it’s capable of 125x optical zoom.
The P1000 is the successor to the P900, which was already breaking new ground with its 83x zoom lens. The P1000’s lens only opens up to f/8 at the long end Compared to the f/6.5 on the P900, but that tradeoff may be worth it for the extra reach — at that focal length, you’ll want to use a tripod anyway. Both cameras’ lenses start at f/2.8 and are paired with an understandably small 16-megapixel 1/2.3-inch sensor.
The P1000 is designed for extreme zoom scenarios like nature and Aeronautic photography, and for that it has dedicated bird-watching and moon-shooting settings on its mode dial. The camera can shoot up to 4000 video at 30 frames per second, has an OLED electronic viewfinder, supports RAW image capture, and works with Nikon’s SnapBridge Bluetooth image transfer system. It weighs 3.1 pounds / 1.4 kilograms, so it’s probably not something you’ll casually sling around your neck Or your pouch.
The Nikon P1000 Should be pricing at $999, which is a lot for a superzoom. But then, this is the King of zooms . It’ll be out in September 2018 and I am personally looking forward to it.
