Nikon today announced the launch of its new COOLPIX P1000 camera which promises “Superzoom” with its 125x optical zoom capability. The 24-3000mm equivalent 125x optical zoom is backed by high performance NIKKOR optics which make this camera perfect for sports, wildlife, birding, and celestial photographers who require great performance from extreme distances.
Aside from its impressive zoom range, the 16 megapixel COOLPIX P1000 can capture 4K UHD video and offers a variety of manual controls. Additional user friendly features such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are built-in as well.
Nikon says that the P1000 has the world’s most powerful 125x optical zoom lens (24-3000mm f/2.8-8) with 250x Dynamic Fine Zoom. That’s equivalent to an impressive 6000mm from macro to extreme distances.
The camera also has Nikon’s latest EXPEED image processing system and Dual Detect Optical VR technology to compensate for camera shake. The 16 megapixel back-side illuminated CMOS sensor and expanded ISO range of up to 6400 make this camera a versatile option.
There’s also a built-in OLED electronic view finder and a vari-angle 3.2 inch 921K-dot TFT LCD display in addition to various picture controls, creative modes, and filter effects.
The Nikon COOLPIX P1000 is going to be available for purchase in the United States this September for $999.
