Nikon quite literally aimed for the stars with the Coolpix P1000, thanks largely to its amazing telescopic abilities.
The zoom is astounding: The 3000mm equivalent NIKKOR ED glass lens is the most powerful ever on a Coolpix series camera and lets you explore the galaxy as well as the earth. Photograph not just the moon, but the craters, peaks and valleys that adorn its surface. Why look at a blurry Saturn when you can see the planet's rings? The Coolpix P1000 pushes technology to bold new heights so you get a close-up view of objects that are far, far away.
The cost of extreme zoom power is the amplification of even the smallest camera movements. This issue is largely rectified by a Dual Detect Optical Vibration Reduction system which stabilizes horizontal and vertical movements.
The Coolpix P1000 features 4K Ultra HD video combined with stereo sound, so you can create an amazing cinematic experience, based on that awesome zoom and high-quality image sensor. To help you keep control of the process, you can manually adjust things like focus and exposure.
The tricks keep on coming, with time-lapse and superlapse recording modes also available. Time-lapse combines still images shot at customizable intervals into a 10 second video, while Superlapse can capture video at speeds up to 30x!
For all the features and awesome zoom power, the Coolpix P1000 is still a relatively compact and portable device, and one that's very easy to use thanks to a host of external control features like a smooth focus control ring, snapback subject acquisition checking and AF/MF switching.
