Nikon Coolpix P1000

 

The Nikon Coolpix P1000 has the longest zoom of any fixed lens camera yet, but it takes a good deal of skill to master.

Incredible 125x (24-3,000mm) zoom range. 7fps burst. Vari-angle LCD. EVF. Raw support. 4K video. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Image quality suffers at maximum zoom. Unresponsive after bursts. No weather protection. Pricey. Bulky. Screen omits touch support.

Bottom Line: The Nikon Coolpix P1000 has the longest zoom of any fixed lens camera yet, but it takes a good deal of skill to master.

Nikon Coolpix P1000 Review

 

Nikon's Coolpix P1000 has moved the zoom needle from 'absurd' to 'ludicrous,' with an equivalent focal length of 24-3000mm. While it's great for lunar and still wildlife photography, we found that it's not suited for much else.

It's hard to place the Nikon Coolpix P1000 into a single box. Its focal range is unmatched, making it ideal for wildlife and lunar photography (or spying on your neighbors, we suppose). However, it's not well-suited for much else, especially given the...

Nikon's Coolpix P1000 125x superzoom will have you literally seeing stars for $999

 

With its 24-3,000mm lens, there's no doubt you'll have the biggest zoom in the room.

Nikon Coolpix P1000

 

The Good: For just under $1000, you get a camera with an ultra-zoom lens that doesn't exist in the interchangeable world. With Moon and Bird modes, you'll easily be taking close-ups that look like they were shot by a professional. It has a full...

Nikon P1000 review

 

A curious beast for capturing curious beasts

Huge zoom ; RAW format shooting ; 4K video

Massively bulky and weighty ; Very small sensor ; Screen not touch-sensitive ; Very expensive

If you absolutely need the novelty of a 3000mm, then there’s nothing else quite like it – but otherwise, there’s more practical solutions on the market

Nikon Coolpix P1000 review

 

125x optical zoom, anyone?

Unique 125x optical zoom ; Effective VR system ; Sharp shots at 3000mm possible (though difficult) ; Very good handling ; Raw shooting option

Camera can lock up after bursts ; Autofocus struggles at times ; Below-average LCD ; No weather-sealing ; General image quality

The P1000 is a curious beast. If you absolutely need a camera with a 3000mm-equivalent lens, the fact that the P1000 is alone in offering this makes your decision easy. With a huge body, less-than-reliable autofocus, a sub-standard LCD and operational...

Nikon Coolpix P1000 review: The most incredible superzoom camera money can buy

 

A 3,000mm-equivalent zoom for under a grand is a stunning deal – though you'll have to learn to live with some limitations

Stunning zoom capabilities ; Reasonable price ; Impressive photo and video performance in good light

Image quality suffers badly in low light ; No touchscreen ; Laggy viewfinder

Even so, if you’re at all interested in wildlife, sports or any other sort of long-distance photography – undercover police officers, take note – then the COOLPIX P1000 is a camera like no other, and one that it’s impossible not to fall a little bit in...

Nikon P1000 Review

 

The Nikon P1000 isn't your typical "superzoom" camera. This is one for the record books.

Record-breaking 24-3000mm optical zoom lens with surprisingly good optical performance; Good image quality at low ISOs; VR works well; Fast AF in good lighting; RAW image capture.

Tiny sensor struggles with low-light/high ISO image quality; Lens dims quickly as you zoom; Sluggish low-light AF; Underwhelming C-AF performance; Shallow buffer depth; Poor battery life.

The Nikon P1000 isn't your typical "superzoom" camera. This is one for the record books. Sporting a 125x optical zoom lens, with a 35mm-eq. focal length range of 24-3000mm (yes, 3000!), the P1000 surpasses the already-impressive P900 and pushes the...

Nikon COOLPIX P1000 bridge camera review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Nikon Coolpix P1000 takes 'superzoom' to a new level. Boasting a 125x optical zoom, Nikon claim it as the world's largest, expanding shooting possibilities. The camera also records in 4K UHD and has special moon and bird-watching modes to make the...

Nikon Coolpix P1000 Review: This 125x Superzoom Shoots the Moon

 

I really wanted to like the Nikon P1000 more than I did after shooting with it. While it's very cool to have a 3,000mm focal range at your fingertips, working with a lens that long requires a level of practice, patience and a very steady hand (and...

125x 24-3,000mm (equivalent) lens ; Excellent image stabilization ; Fully articulating LCD ; 4K UHD video ; RAW capabilities

Bulky ; Variable image quality ; No touch screen ; Short battery life

Even with its impressive focal range of 24mm to 3,000mm (35mm equivalent), this camera is a lot for the average photographer to handle. But, with patience, practice and a very steady hand, you may be able to capture unique pictures of wildlife — and...
