Nikon’s new COOLPIX P1000 lets you photograph a needle in a haystack from 1 mile away

NEWS – Ok, that’s a wild exaggeration, but seriously, the just announced COOLPIX P1000 from Nikon has a 24-3000mm lens. Nope, that isn’t a typo and yes, I thought it was too. That’s right, this camera features an incredible 3000mm lens. That’s 125x optical zoom. It also has an aperture range of f/2.8-8, and a 16MP BSI CMOS sensor. A camera with this type of zoom lens works well for nature and moon photography. The COOLPIX P1000 will start shipping in September and can be pre-ordered now at Adorama and B&H Photo.

  1. I want it! But only yesterday I was thinking I wanted a Nikon P900, with a mere 24-2000mm lens, at half the price. I have to ask, how often would I use the extra zoom, and the answer is, not very often. I find extreme zoom shots are very often disappointing because of atmospheric conditions that no lens can do anything about.
