The COOLPIX P1000 is a super-telephoto camera that offers high-power zoom and superior operation for photographing the moon, birds, and other subjects at a distance. It is suited for an incredibly wide variety of scenes, from macro photography of subjects as close as approximately 1 cm from the front of the lens, to astrophotography at a focal length equivalent to 3000mm with conversion to 35mm [135] format.

Equipped with Nikon’s vibration reduction system, the COOLSHOT PRO STABILIZED is a laser rangefinder capable of instantly measuring the distance to a target. As a high-end model loaded with Nikon’s optical technologies, this rangefinder can measure an actual distance to an object as far away as 1,200 yards. The built-in ID Technology reads uphill and downhill slopes, which can make judging distances difficult, to display the slope-adjusted distance to the target. In addition, this technology uses an algorithm to instantly measure and display the distance to more difficult targets, such as flagsticks. This compact and sporty, yet highly functional rangefinder makes golfing more enjoyable.

MONARCH HG 8x30/10x30

MONARCH HG 8×30/10×30

MONARCH HG 8×30/10/30 binoculars are compact and lightweight high-performance binoculars for those looking for greater enjoyment from the “watching” they do in their leisure time, whether it be birdwatching or traveling. Nikon’s Field Flattener Lens System is incorporated to minimize the curvature of field for a sharp and clear view to the lens periphery even with the M00001’s wide field of view. These flagship models of the MONARCH series with 30mm diameter objective lenses strive to be true and effective tools with universal yet refined lines and a high-quality look and feel.
