Nikon is the brand that most of the photographers rely upon when it comes to photography. The performance, picture quality, and speed are among the factors that best defines the Nikon cameras. Lately, the brand has announced another stunning model, which has been long-awaited. It is the new Nikon Coolpix P1000 superzoom camera, which features the world’s longest lens. And as the device is here, let us know about this new product and find out its details like features, specifications and also Nikon Coolpix P1000 price in USA which is said to be around $999.
The last time when the brand has left you spellbound is by launching the Nikon P900, which stunned even its competitors with its 83x zoom feature. But if you think that was the best ever offered by the company, here comes the new Nikon Coolpix P1000, which is best denoted as the “undisputed powerhouse of superzooms.”
The reason why it has been one of the much-awaited products of 2018 in the camera industry is it is the world’s first DSLR camera to sport a 125x optical zoom lens. However, there are also a few professional cameras with the telephoto lens that provide a longer focal length. Not just these, but there are also many top DSLR cameras like Nikon D3400, Nikon D5500, Nikon D610, Nikon D5300, Nikon D3300, Nikon D750, and many others. But the P1000 offers the biggest range so far with 24-3000mm equivalent lens. This is the greatest ever feature to be present on a consumer superzoom compact camera. The Nikon Coolpix P1000 price in the UK is around £760, which is quite high for a superzoom camera yet it is worth it. This DSLR camera might even surpass its predecessor Nikon P900 when it comes to performance. The P900 is also a top rated camera superzoom digital bridge camera with amazing specifications.
According to the brand, “The P1000 is the ideal companion camera for birding, sports, wildlife, and celestial-photographers seeking superior performance from extreme distances.”
The new Nikon Coolpix P1000 specifications include a 16-megapixel CMOS sensor that is illuminated back-side and comes with an expanded ISO range of up to 6400. The Japanese company has used ED and Super ED lens elements for this camera, and it also has a variable aperture of f/2.8 to f/8 through the zoom range. In addition to this, it also features the dynamic fine zoom option that further increases the camera’s digital reach, thus enabling it to capture up to 6000mm.
According to Nikon, “This powerful zoom range gives the P1000 the versatility to chronicle an adventure-filled vacation, capture a favorite ballplayer from the top tier of a stadium or fill the frame with celestial objects like the moon, that normally only a telescope could reach.”
This Nikon DSLR camera also comes packed with a dual detect optical VR that offers 5-stops of camera shake compensation. This aspect helps to click snaps of your favorite scenes or subjects at the telephoto end of the camera’s range. In the rear, the device also features a 2.3-million-dot OLED electronic viewfinder as well as a swiveling 3.2-inch 921K-dot LCD screen. Also, there is a snap-back zoom button that expands the field of view for a limited time and helps to take super-telephoto snaps. Compared to the zoom bridge cameras like Sony RX10 IV that sport a 1-inch sensor, Nikon P1000 gets a small 1/2.3-inch back-side illuminated (BSI) CMOS chip that offers a resolution of 16MP.
Apart from this, the P1000 allows capturing images in different modes including the scene, creative shooting as well as super-zoom-specific image capture modes. When using these modes, the camera adjusts the settings suitable to the scenario accordingly. Besides, the aspects like built-in time-lapse, super lapse video capture modes and interval timer for stills further help in the photography process.

When it comes to the ISO performance of Nikon P1000, its range of sensitivities is almost similar to that of the P900. The device’s full ISO ranges between 100 to 6400 but this range will also vary depending on the shooting mode selected. Normally, users can select the ISO range between 3200 and 6400. But when shooting in other modes like aperture priority, manual exposure, program auto and so on, the ISO range will be limited from 100 to 1600, and whereas for videos, it features the base ISO of 125. Meanwhile, the shutter speed remains at a maximum of 1/4000 second (1/8000s for videos).
Another Nikon Coolpix feature is it comes with a continuous burst rate of 7fps for up to seven frames at full resolution, which is almost the same as in the P900. It provides faster JPEG-only burst shooting rates at lower image resolutions of 1920×1080 at 60fps as well as 640×480 at 120fps. On the other hand, its autofocus system acts as a contrast-detect AF system as in its predecessor or even better than this.
The Nikon Coolpix P1000 release date has already been announced and the device is expected to be on sale in September. As for the Nikon Coolpix P1000 price in Canada, it is anticipated to be around CAD 1305, whereas the Nikon Coolpix P1000 price in Australia is estimated to be approximately AUD 1350.
