Melville, NY—Nikon’s Coolpix P900 point-and-shoot camera boasts unprecedented 83x optical zoom along with Nikkor optics and Dynamic Fine Zoom technology that takes the zoom out to 166x.
The 16 megapixel camera includes advanced controls for capturing images as well as Full HD video from afar. Such features include built-in GPS and Nikon Snapbridge, whereby users shoot and share photos from the camera to a compatible smartphone or tablet via built-in Wi-Fi and Near Field Communication technology (NFC). Additionally, the P900 combines user-friendly controls and creative features.
The camera’s 24–2,000mm equivalent Nikkor ED glass lens incorporates a super extra-low dispersion (ED) glass element, to aid in capturing sharp images and videos from extreme lengths.
“With its spectacular 83x zoom range, extensive list of innovative features and advanced controls, the new Nikon Coolpix P900 is the first Coolpix compact camera to ever offer this amazing zoom range and powerful features together in an easy-to-use package,” said Masahiro Horie, director, Marketing and Planning, Nikon Inc. “The Coolpix P900 will provide users with the opportunity to capture sharp images and video in rich detail near or far, and to share their content with family and friends with confidence.”
Additionally, its enhanced autofocus (AF) system is capable of shooting 7 frames per second (fps) to help deliver photos of fast-moving subjects. Specs state the P900 has a shooting lag time of 0.12 second at the maximum wide-angle position and 0.75 second at the maximum telephoto position. And Dual Detect Optical VR technology is designed to achieve the highest level of camera shake compensation in a Nikon compact camera, equivalent to a 5-stop increase in shutter speed to help ensure sharp photos.
Whether shooting above a crowd or from the stands, users can frame their subjects by using the camera’s built-in electronic viewfinder (EVF) with an eye sensor or its vari-angle 3-inch, 921K-dot LCD display. A snap-back zoom button enables users to frame subjects when shooting super-telephoto shots, while the side zoom control button’s position helps combat camera shake.
Other features include: an intuitive control layout with an Fn (function) button providing fast access to frequently used functions plus command and mode dials that allow users to apply or adjust settings with one hand; selectable manual (spot), manual (normal) and manual (wide) AF area mode options; scene modes; filter effects; special effects; picture controls; macro mode; and built-in GPS and POI (point of interest) to geotag images.
