Nikon's latest compact digital camera, the Coolpix P1000, features their longest zoom lens to date: a NIKKOR 24-3000mm equivalent superzoom. The lens has a f2.8 to f8 aperture range and is paired with a 1/2.3-inch 16MP backside-illuminated image sensor. This combination is perfect for sports, birding, and wildlife while the 3000mm equivalent lens is capable of telescope-like astrophotography shots.
Dual Detect Optical VR technology compensates for 5-stops of camera shake and high-speed autofocus make the P1000 a great option for fast-paced action shots. The P1000 also works great for macro shots as the lens is capable of focusing as close as 1cm away.
On the back is a 3.2" vari-angle 921k-dot LCD display for challenging framing angles as well as a 2.3m dot OLED electronic viewfinder that works accurately in all lighting conditions. Video mode on the P1000 shoots up to 4K UHD resolution at 30 frames per second.
The Nikon Coolpix P1000 is expected to arrive in September with a retail price of $1299.00.
