Nikon COOLPIX P1000 Super-Telephoto Camera with insane 24-3000mm focal range

Nikon has released the COOLPIX P1000 Super-Telephoto Camera that features a lens that goes up to a mind-blowing 3000mm.

The P1000 has a 16MP low-light CMOS sensor that is capable of shooting 4K UHD. It has a design very similar to regular DSLR cameras with its large, mode dials and a flip out screen.

The Dual Detect Optical Vibration Reduction system, a fancy way of saying image stabilisation provides up to five stops of stabilisation which you will definitely want to turn on.

If 3000mm still isn’t enough, the P1000, the zoom range can be expanded all the way up to 6000mm, using the camera’s digital dynamic fine zoom.

On the left side of the lens, there is a zoom rocker dial as well as a snapback zoom button that will crash zoom in and out of a predetermined focal length of your liking. Handy for bird watching where you can relocate your subject.

At such long focal lengths, camera shake is an issue. You will want to use a rock solid tripod and remote shutter cable. What should be included but is an optional accessory is the ML-L7 remote control that allows for zoom control, shutter and record start stop without having to touch the camera. Essential if you are operating the camera at the zoom range of the lens. The remote costs an extras $49.95

The Nikon Coolpix P1000 will sell for USD $999.95

What do you think of the Nikon Coolpix P1000? it might be just the tool for those essential shots that you wouldn’t normally be able to get.
