3 years after launch, the camera remains the longest zoom range. Movies in full HD but it's only possible to record 30-minute clips. The camera is relatively clumsy and slow. The display has relatively low resolution. But as said, it's the zoom you're looking for so there's still no better camera on the market. Rumors say the P1000 comes a beautiful day and replaces this.

This is a difficult camera to review in a way that makes it clear who it is suitable for. My background is like an amateur photographer for a number of years back. I mostly use a full-format camera which, of course, is in a completely different league. I'm writing a little about the camera's strengths and weaknesses, trying to explain who's going to and not buying it in a few simple points. Zoom The range is GIGANTIC on the camera. It's almost ridiculous, but also amazing. You can not get anything close to this on a system camera without adding fantasy numbers. The zoom is amazing, the stabilization is amazing as well. You can actually get good pictures of 2000mm in good light handheld. It's getting better with tripod, but you can snap fully acceptable photos on your hand. It is insanely impressive, exciting and entertaining. This is a KUL camera to take pictures with and you will take pictures that you have not even thought of before. This is clearly the biggest selling point, but how is the camera in general? Image quality In particular, if you expect image quality comparable to a system camera, you should instead buy it: a system camera. You do not reach the level of this camera. The pictures are noticeably soft in 1: 1. With that said, the image quality is impressive for the small sensor in the camera combined with the giant zoom range. How do you know if you are satisfied? If the images are intended for Facebook, Instagram or Monitor / TV, and you do not intend to make tight editions or critically review the images in 1: 1, yes, you will probably be more than satisfied. For printing, the images are enlarged to smaller magnifications, but there will be no canvas for the wall unless you enjoy viewing the image at a distance. Build quality Here is one of the camera's major weaknesses: it's incredibly plastic and built with steering wheels and controls of lame bad quality. The flash lid slips and the grip creaks complaining when pushing more than feather light. This is no camera to tear and throw away. It belongs in a camera bag every second as it is not used actively. Just catching it in a door cost can prove to be the last thing it does. If you are not at all risk of home insurance, then the notorious reinsurance of the stores might be worth its price for once. BUY UV FILTER AS A PROTECTION! Depth of Depth / "system camera images" Many associate "professional" shots with short depth of field, that is to say. that the background is clearly blurred. You may think automatically that this is something you get on the purchase because the camera looks like a system camera to the outside. The answer to that question is: no, not really. On the focal lengths (zoom) that you normally start to find this effect you will not see one. Everything is in focus. On the other hand, when shooting macro or zooming really far, it can begin to be seen. If "system camera images" are what you're looking for, then you should probably instead choose a system camera of entry model with APS-C sensor in kit with a lens that reaches at least 70mm. Focus The focus is very good on this camera. It does not cure pro cameras in any way, but it is effective and rarely irritates you. All desired functions around focus are in place even if manual focus can be a bit of a bit, it works very well. ISO performance / low light In this area, many people complain loudly on this camera. I think it made it easy for the sensor to use the buttonhole head. Up to ISO 1600, it is still quite fine in many cases. However, ISO 3200-6400 is something you just want to use in absolute emergency situations. What does this mean in Swedish? The camera is best in daylight, especially when using a lot of zoom. However, it is possible to cure delicate images even in slightly poorer light conditions if you only have realistic expectations about the result and do not zoom so far. However, if you intend to shoot a lot indoors or in the evening / night, you should definitely choose another camera. Also read the next paragraph that relates directly to this. Fota activity / sport / movement The camera can shoot 7 frames per second in full resolution. It sounds great, but in reality it's almost completely useless. The buffer prevents you from taking pictures for more than one second OR LESS at a time. Whatever you choose for drive mode. When is it enough to shoot continuously for up to 1 second? If you often shoot activity, sports or other situations that require you to take many shots in sequence, do not choose this camera. The features available are enough for pictures of the child in the process of blowing the candles on the cake. There goes the limit. Unfortunately. It could have been a lot better with a bigger buffer. Seeker It's small, the colors are matte, the view layer and have low refresh rate. You have not even strived to put there a rubber ring to block the light from entering the pages. The idea is that the viewfinder should be used in strong sunlight but they are anything but good. If you prefer to photograph with a searcher: buy something else, you will be crazy. The display is what you will use 99 times out of 100. However, this is good, clear and rotable which is a big plus. It does not have touch, but you can live surprisingly easily without this. Other that annoys There is some other thing that is disturbing when compared to a system camera. No RAW, no flash shoe, no 4K video are some common complaints. There are also several small things missing. Something I often do as a photographer is to take a picture, but never let go of the finger completely so as to continue taking pictures with focus locked on the same object. This technique can not be used. You MUST release your finger completely, even if you turn off the dismissal. This is again not the camera to take several photos in a hurry no matter how you want to do it. Macro The camera is great nice to take macro with. When you can focus as close as 1cm, you immediately understand how close you are. Here the depth of field is rather short rather than being too big. I've been very pleased with my macro images and even though my professional camera lens definitely delivers higher quality images, there's a lightness and creative pleasure to shoot the macro on this camera. You get stuck on this, I promise! Video I almost never film and can not say so much about this. The camera has a zooming stereo microphone but lacks 4K and a lot of other things that would make it a good camcorder. The filming is definitely for easier purposes, but if it is filming primarily on the agenda then I would definitely choose something else. There are really good cameras for movies with 1-inch sensor that I would look into. Summing: to round off positively I have a system camera with a lot of lenses that trace this camera's image quality every day of the week. I'll never bring it to take professional photos, so why did I buy it? For a reason I think many will agree: this camera offers, in a pretty package, the ability to take pictures all the way from wide-angle 24mm to the incredible focal length of 2000mm. There it offers a very good macro and also some other candy that is sometimes fun to use as HDR. It is REASONABLE and CREATIVE to use the camera. You take pictures with the one you would never even think about. I love eg nature and street photography. Being able to stand in a market and taking intimate close-ups on people so far away that they do not have a chance to discover you: it's an amazing tool. In nature, it is the same. It's not just for bird lovers. I take details of trees, spider webs, plants and everything possible. Sometimes it's just the simplicity to zoom instead of climbing / hanging to take pictures, sometimes it's impossible to reach any other way. It's easy to think that 2000mm can only be for shooting dots on the horizon, but the most useful one is rather getting really close to what's halfway away. I take amazing pictures of my family where they are completely unaffected by the camera's presence. I was able to take pictures with a 70-200 lens of professional quality, but then I had stood so close that my presence destroyed the possibilities of the pictures. There is an old rule that sounds: better half a picture than no picture at all. It sounds a bit boring, but true with this camera. The pictures can not be printed on large canvas, they are used to social media and all possible screens where they are estimated without looking for errors. After all, it is in this way that we enjoy images today, and Nikon is not so crazy about making a camera adapted for this, which instead offers a fantastic spectrum of possibilities. Just be aware of its limitations. Thanks for me, hopefully this review has said everything you need to know to make a choice.

A great camera, but be aware of what you are buying. I am an ordinary amateur photographer who stick to automatic functions. I can only comment on how the camera experienced "point-and-shoot" ie, without manual / advanced settings. I had read a lot about this camera before I bought it. For me it was the amazing zoom that finally got me to buy it. Firstly one must be aware that this is a big (!) Camera. It weighs approximately 1 kg and is the size of a system camera. Secondly, one must be aware that this camera is designed precisely zoom. This is impressive and so is the image stabilizer, which makes it possible to capture images at maximum zoom without a tripod. It can best be described as a telescope / binoculars camera function. When it comes to venture out, there are currently no other camera on the market that provides the range Nikon P900 has. However, the image sensor is small and the image quality is not the best. Here it is primarily reach one pays for. I have taken a great deal of visual (without zoom), both outdoors and indoors, and here drawers P900. The images are somewhat faded, with average color rendering and with less good details. In everything darker than daylight will also witness a lot of noise ( "snow") in the images as sacrificing image quality. I can not recommend P900 photos indoors or to those who want an all-rounder. In my opinion this is brilliant and safe choice for all who want and need as much zoom, but for those looking for a camera that can be used in any situation (all-round camera), this is as said this is the wrong choice . Want a good camera for a holiday trip or in your daily life, you will find many (cheaper) compact to take far better pictures and is easier to bring their conclusion is that this is fun and good camera in its application. User interface and functions there is nothing to say on. Build quality is also good, as expected by Nikon. Consider therefore through your needs before buying. With that said, there are zoom you are looking for, the Nikon P900 right choice!

Got hold of this camera out and have tried it for a while and am very happy with it so far. There are very many settings that you can choose depending on what to shoot. Have tried to photograph the moon and the zoom is incredible, but you should use a tripod when zooming so far and use a remote shutter release so it will be fine pictures.
