Nikon P900

Nikon COOLPIX P900

Nikon COOLPIX P900

Category: Beginner, Serious

Type: Long-Zoom Travel Camera


Eighty-three times optical zoom. The Nikon COOLPIX P900 is a long-zoom camera with a spectacular 2000mm equivalent focal length reach. There’s not much that you won’t be able to shoot with the P900, from macro, wide-angle to super telephoto. It’s all captured onto a 1/2.3″ 16 Megapixel CMOS image sensor.

The 83x optical zoom lens has focal length of 4.3-357mm (angle of view equivalent to that of 24-2000mm lens in 35mm [135] format), allowing you to capture large vistas as well as zoom in close to faraway subjects. Because at that long reach, it’s easy to lose sight of your subject while zoomed in, the P900 has a nifty Snap-Back Zoom button. Press it and the lens quickly zooms out to allow you to find your subject; release it and the lens zooms right back in. A 5 stops (at 350mm equiv.) Dual Detect Optical VR (Vibration Reduction, aka image stabilization) helps keep your photos sharp and your videos steady.

Macro mode lets you focus an incredible 1cm (0.4 in.) to your subject. Advanced shooters can switch to semi-auto and full Manual using PASM shooting modes.

Movies are captured in Full HD video at 1920 x 1080/60p with stereo sound. You can connect to an HDTV (requires optional cable). A Time-lapse Movie function records changes that occur over time into an approximately 10 s time-lapse movie.

The Nikon P900 features built-in Wi-Fi and NFC. Nikon snapbridge allows you to send photos wirelessly from your Wi-Fi & NFC enabled COOLPIX P900 to a compatible smartphone or tablet. You can share your photos on the go, even in remote locations, and even use a smartphone or tablet to control your camera.

Built-in GPS allows you to record the exact location of each shot you take and to share your journeys on Google Maps™, Google+™, and other social networking sites, or with Nikon View NX2 software. Points of Interest (POI) shows you nearby photo-ops like scenic lookouts and historic landmarks.

The COOLPIX P900 has a 3.0-in. swiveling Vari-angle LCD (921k-dot) display and a high-resolution (921k-dot) eye-level viewfinder (EVF). An eye-sensor automatically switches from viewfinder to LCD and vice-versa.

The Nikon COOLPIX P-900 will appeal to those desiring an all-in-one super long zoom camera.

For faster wireless transfers, transmit images over FTP using the WT-5A Wireless Transmitter + UT-1 Communication Unit. (Advanced shooters can use a web browser on a smartphone or tablet in HTTP mode to operate camera controls and begin Live View shooting.)

The Nikon D750 will appeal to enthusiasts who are thinking of upgrading to full-frame photography and pros who need a second full-frame body. They can now do so at an affordable price with a full-featured HD-DSLR.

Full-frame HD-SLR for enthusiasts. The Nikon D600 puts a full-frame FX-format sensor in a relatively compact and lightweight HD-DSLR. It is Nikon’s smallest and lightest full-frame offering at an affordable price that enthusiast photographers will find very attractive. The Nikon D600 features 24.3MP, ISO range of 100-6400 (expandable from 50-25,600), 5.5fps burst rate, 39-point AF system and Full HD (1080p) video.

For those who like to stay connected, a new optional WU-1b wireless adapter allows users to shoot high-quality HD-SLR images and transfer them to their mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. The optional WU-1b Wireless Adapter allows users to remotely fire the D600’s shutter from up to 15.24m (50ft) away

The auto focus system features nine cross-type sensors for maximum accuracy, while seven AF points are fully functional when using compatible NIKKOR lenses and teleconverters with an aperture value up to f/8 for extreme telephoto applications.

The D600 is ready to shoot in 0.13 seconds, with a 0.052 second shutter release. It is capable of bursts of images at 5.5 fps at full resolution to capture decisive moments. To enhance speed and workflow, images and videos are rapidly transferred to dual SD card slots that are compatible with the latest SDXC and UHS-1 high-speed standards.

The optical viewfinder provides 100% frame coverage. Or use Live View on the large 3.2-inch 921,000-dot LCD that features automatic brightness control.

The D600 records Full HD 1080p video at 30, 25 or 24p, and 720p video at 60, 50 and 30p. When shooting HD video at the highest quality setting, up to 20 minutes can be recorded, or up to 29 minutes and 59 seconds in normal quality. The onboard microphone captures monaural sound; you can record stereo audio using an optional external stereo microphone. Audio can be monitored through the headphone jack and levels can be displayed on the LCD with peaking. For monitoring and streaming applications, the image can be displayed on the LCD screen while simultaneously shown on another monitor through the HDMI, regardless of whether they are shooting data. Furthermore, the D600 adds the ability to transfer uncompressed videos via the HDMI connection, which can then be routed to a digital recorder or similar device.

The D600 uses Nikon’s Creative Lighting System (CLS). A built-in Speedlight commander can control multiple Speedlights such as Nikon’s SB-700, SB-910 or Wireless Close Up Speedlight System. The camera can also control up to two individual Speedlight groups for further creative control. X-Sync Speed is 1/200 sec (synchronizes with shutter at 1/250s or slower) while top FP High Speed Sync is up to 1/4000 sec.

The body of the D600 is sealed with gaskets for resistance against dirt and moisture. The camera is built with a magnesium alloy top and rear construction. The shutter is rated for 150,000 cycles. The battery lasts for approximately 900 shots; an optional MB-D14 Multi Power Battery Pack extends the grip for comfort and can effectively double the battery capacity when using two batteries.

The Nikon D600 will appeal to enthusiasts who are itching to get back into full-frame photography. They can now do so at an affordable price with a full-featured HD-DSLR.

CX format with a new Nikon 1 lens mount. The Nikon 1 V1 is a completely new compact system camera from Nikon and is set to compete against the compact mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras from other camera manufacturers. While the FX (full frame) format is targeted to its top of the line DSLRs, the DX (APS-C) format to enthusiast DSLRs, Nikon is introducing a brand new CX format using a 1.0-in. CMOS image sensor and a new Nikon 1 lens mount with smaller and lighter lenses for its Nikon 1 System. The Nikon 1 System is targeted to the point-and-shoot crowd who wants a better camera with interchangeable lenses.

The Nikon 1 V1 (or simply Nikon V1) features 10.1MP (on a 1.0-in. 13.2 x 8.8mm CMOS sensor). This image sensor is bigger than the 1/1.7-in. sensor used in most top of the line point-and-shoot cameras but smaller than the Four Thirds sensor and APS-C sensor found in other compact mirrorless cameras. The Nikon 1 System targets mostly those coming from the point-and-shoot world wanting a better camera with more flexibility.

The Nikon 1 V1 also features a new and revolutionary hybrid AF system with both Phase-detection and Contrast-detect AF sensors embedded right in the image sensor itself. Being embedded right in the sensor allows the Nikon 1 V1 to have lightning fast phase detection AF without needing a mirror to reflect light to its phase detection sensor(s). The 73 point AF array allows Continuous Shooting of 5fps in autofocus or 60fps using electronic shutter.

The LCD is 3.0-in. with a high 921k-dot resolution. For those who prefer it, there is also a 1,440,000 -dot (SVGA) electronic viewfinder (EVF). An eye sensor automatically toggles the display between EVF and LCD as you bring the camera to your eye or away from it.

The Nikon 1 V1 accepts interchangeable lenses on its new Nikon 1 lens mount. Currently, there are 4 lenses: 1 NIKKOR VR 10-33mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens, 1 NIKKOR 10mm f/2.8 Pancake lens, 1 NIKKOR VR 30-110mm f/3.8-5.6 Zoom lens and 1 NIKKOR VR 10-100mm f/4.5-5.6 10x power zoom lens. An optional FT1 F-mount adaptor allows the use of legacy 35mm NIKKOR lenses.

Movie is recorded in Full HD (1080p) and you can take a still photo at any time during movie recording. Movie frame rates are 30/60/400/1200fps. Motion Snapshot is a novel feature and captures a still image together with an accompanying 2 sec. video. Smart Photo Selector takes a number of shots in quick succession and selects the one with optimal exposure, subjects in frame, clarity and focus, even eyes open.

The Nikon 1 V1 has a proprietary accessory shoe that accepts a number of optional accessories: GP-N100 GPS module, ME-1 Microphone (with the AS-N1000 adapter) or SB-N5 Speedlight. You cannot use existing Nikon speedlights.

Want something better than point-and-shoot with more accessories and interchangeable lenses but don’t want the size, weight and complexity of a DSLR? The Nikon 1 V1 may be just the right camera for you.

Point-and-shoot with flexibility. The Nikon 1 J1 is basically a simpler point-and-shoot version of the Nikon 1 V1. It features the same CX format using a 1.0-in. CMOS image sensor and a new Nikon 1 lens mount with smaller and lighter lenses for its Nikon 1 System. The Nikon 1 System is targeted to the point-and-shoot crowd who wants a better camera with interchangeable lenses.
