Nikon Announces COOLPIX P1000 Compact Digital Camera with World’s Highest Zoom ratio of 125x
Nikon today announced the launch of the COOLPIX P1000 compact digital camera featuring world’s highest zoom ratio of 125x and superior operability. The 125x optical zoom lens covers an incredible range of focal lengths, beginning at the wide-angle 24mm equivalent, and extending to the super-telephoto 3000mm equivalent. Extending to the super-telephoto 3000mm equivalent (up to 250x 3 zoom is possible when Dynamic Fine Zoom is enabled). Furthermore, super ED and ED lens elements were adopted for this lens, providing superior compensation for chromatic aberration. High-resolution images can be captured throughout the entire zoom range.
The COOLPIX P1000 is equipped with a high-resolution, approximately 2359k-dot OLED electronic viewfinder. The subject is clearly projected with a viewfinder magnification of approximately 0.68x (equivalent in 35mm  format). This high-performance viewfinder makes viewing images comfortable and easy, even in bright outdoor situations. A 3.2-in. TFT LCD vari-angle monitor with wide viewing angle and a display that provides comfortable viewing.
The camera employs an upgraded EXPEED image-processing engine, which allows for the capture of high-quality images, and the Dual Detect Optical VR, which achieves a level of vibration reduction equivalent to a 5.0-stop increase in shutter speed, delivering sharp and clear images, even with hand-held telephoto shooting. The COOLPIX P1000 supports the recording of high-definition 4K UHD/30p movies. The photographer can harness the power of 3000mm-equivalent super-telephoto shooting to beautifully record subjects at great distances.
Frames from movies recorded in 4K UHD format can also be saved as still images to preserve moments that simply cannot be captured with a continuous burst of still-image shooting. The COOPLIX P1000 is equipped with an accessory terminal and an accessory shoe that supports a wide variety of accessories, including external Speedlights. The COOLPIX P1000 will have a suggested retail price (SRP) of $999.95 and will be available in September 2018. The camera weighs 3.1 pounds / 1.4 kilograms.
