Nikon P1000 review


A curious beast for capturing curious beasts

Huge zoom ; RAW format shooting ; 4K video

Massively bulky and weighty ; Very small sensor ; Screen not touch-sensitive ; Very expensive

If you absolutely need the novelty of a 3000mm, then there’s nothing else quite like it – but otherwise, there’s more practical solutions on the market

Nikon Coolpix P1000 review


125x optical zoom, anyone?

Unique 125x optical zoom ; Effective VR system ; Sharp shots at 3000mm possible (though difficult) ; Very good handling ; Raw shooting option

Camera can lock up after bursts ; Autofocus struggles at times ; Below-average LCD ; No weather-sealing ; General image quality

The P1000 is a curious beast. If you absolutely need a camera with a 3000mm-equivalent lens, the fact that the P1000 is alone in offering this makes your decision easy. With a huge body, less-than-reliable autofocus, a sub-standard LCD and operational...

Nikon Coolpix P1000 review: The most incredible superzoom camera money can buy


A 3,000mm-equivalent zoom for under a grand is a stunning deal – though you'll have to learn to live with some limitations

Stunning zoom capabilities ; Reasonable price ; Impressive photo and video performance in good light

Image quality suffers badly in low light ; No touchscreen ; Laggy viewfinder

Even so, if you’re at all interested in wildlife, sports or any other sort of long-distance photography – undercover police officers, take note – then the COOLPIX P1000 is a camera like no other, and one that it’s impossible not to fall a little bit in...

Nikon COOLPIX P1000 bridge camera review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Nikon Coolpix P1000 takes 'superzoom' to a new level. Boasting a 125x optical zoom, Nikon claim it as the world's largest, expanding shooting possibilities. The camera also records in 4K UHD and has special moon and bird-watching modes to make the...

Nikon Coolpix P1000 Review


We go shooting with Nikon's ultra zoom, the Nikon Coolpix P1000, with 125x optical zoom lens, it offers the most optical zoom of any camera.

The Nikon Coolpix P1000, without doubt, offers the biggest and most in your face optical zoom ever, with a 125x optical zoom lens! For bragging rights alone, this camera knocks it out of the park, offering a 24mm to 3000mm equivalent zoom lens.

Nikon Coolpix P1000


The Nikon Coolpix P1000 has the longest zoom of any fixed lens camera yet, but it takes a good deal of skill to master.

Incredible 125x (24-3,000mm) zoom range. 7fps burst. Vari-angle LCD. EVF. Raw support. 4K video. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Image quality suffers at maximum zoom. Unresponsive after bursts. No weather protection. Pricey. Bulky. Screen omits touch support.

Bottom Line: The Nikon Coolpix P1000 has the longest zoom of any fixed lens camera yet, but it takes a good deal of skill to master.

Nikon Coolpix P1000 Review


Nikon's Coolpix P1000 has moved the zoom needle from 'absurd' to 'ludicrous,' with an equivalent focal length of 24-3000mm. While it's great for lunar and still wildlife photography, we found that it's not suited for much else.

It's hard to place the Nikon Coolpix P1000 into a single box. Its focal range is unmatched, making it ideal for wildlife and lunar photography (or spying on your neighbors, we suppose). However, it's not well-suited for much else, especially given the...

Nikon's Coolpix P1000 125x superzoom will have you literally seeing stars for $999


With its 24-3,000mm lens, there's no doubt you'll have the biggest zoom in the room.

Nikon Coolpix P1000


The Good: For just under $1000, you get a camera with an ultra-zoom lens that doesn't exist in the interchangeable world. With Moon and Bird modes, you'll easily be taking close-ups that look like they were shot by a professional. It has a full...
