Nikon P900 review

 

Unleash your inner paparazzo with the world's first bridge camera to feature an 83x optical zoom

Huge zoom range ; Articulating screen ; Inbuilt Wi-Fi and NFC

No raw shooting ; Screen not touch sensitive ; Expensive

The P900 is the longest-zoom bridge camera in the world – for now, at least – but it's also big, heavy and expensive. Image quality at shorter focal lengths is good but falls away at high zooms settings.

Nikon Coolpix P900 review: The camera that's all zoom

 

Technically impressive and capable of good results, but it isn't easy to achieve them

Reasonable sharpness over a huge zoom range ; Wi-Fi and GPS

The 2000mm zoom position is unwieldy ; Too much reliance on menu navigation ; Odd automatic ISO settings

The other thing to bear in mind is that (equivalent) focal lengths beyond about 600mm are only useful for static subjects. It simply isn't realistic to track moving subjects with such a narrow field of view. With the P900, even static subjects can be...

Nikon Coolpix P900 review

 

The word "whopping" doesn't really do justice to the zoom range on the Nikon Coolpix P900.

The Nikon Coolpix P900 features an unmatched 83x zoom lens allowing you to use it for just about anything from close-ups and landscapes to portraits to birding and wildlife photography. It has a decent electronic viewfinder, flip-out rotating...

It lacks features more advanced users might want like raw image capture, a hot shoe and mic jack. Images are soft and lack fine detail when fully zoomed in. The autofocus system can be hit or miss and is slow to focus in low light. The lens does make...

It's not the best megazoom around, but the Nikon Coolpix P900's lens is remarkable and if you need the most zoom on a compact camera, it's the winner.

Nikon Coolpix P900 review

  (Rating Hidden)

To call the Nikon Coolpix P900 a superzoom camera wouldn't do it justice. With its 83x optical zoom lens, it has us reaching for our 'mega' or 'ultra' prefixes. It's hardly short on advanced features - there's a 16Mp sensor, full manual controls and...

Nikon's Coolpix P900 is the best way to get detailed photos of the moon

 

Or of anything from really, really far away.

Spectacular 83x optical zoom lens ; Great wide-angle shooter ; Great action shooter ; Great price

Convoluted Wi-Fi downloads ; Balky monitor

An amazing super-zoom lens on a good camera and at an amazing price.

It's got a great zoom lens but image quality and speed are not its strong points.

Nikon Coolpix P900 Review

 

We review the new Nikon Coolpix P900, an ultra zoom bridge camera with a massive 83x optical zoom lens.

83x optical zoom lens! ; 2 year warranty ; Large rubberised grip ; Side zoom control ; Effective image stabilisation ; Good EVF and vari-angle screen ; Moon and bird watching scene modes ; HDR mode built in ; Wi-Fi / NFC connectivity ; GPS/GLONASS...

Large and heavy ; Does not offer RAW shooting ; Panoramic images could have more detail ; Tripod position could be better

The Nikon Coolpix P900 offers the largest optical zoom lens available in any camera, with a whopping 83x optical zoom lens, zooming from 24mm (equivalent) wide-angle to an impressive 2000mm telephoto! Along with this, the camera is noticeable in its...

Nikon Coolpix P900

 

The Nikon Coolpix P900 boasts the longest zoom range of any camera on the market, but a lack of detail at higher ISOs holds it back.

83x zoom lens. Excellent image stabilization system. Full manual controls. Eye-level EVF. Vari-angle LCD. Quick autofocus. In-camera GPS and Wi-Fi. 1080p60 video capture.

Detail suffers at moderate ISOs. No Raw support. Long recovery times after burst shooting. Large and heavy. No hot shoe. External charger not included.

Performance and Conclusions Nikon has addressed some of the performance issues that plague its P600 , but there's still some work to be done. First, the good news. The P900 starts and captures an in-focus image in about 1.6 seconds when the lens is set...

Considering it has a jaw-dropping 83x optical zoom lens, the Nikon Coolpix P900 is an attention-grabbing ultra zoom camera. No camera currently on the market can match the P900's zoom range of 24-2000mm. Unfortunately, this model's image quality is...

Small image sensor measuring 1/2.3-inch ; Image quality and image sharpness just don't match up to other models in this price range ; Low light image quality could be better ; ISO range is limited to 6400 ; ISO performance is well below average versus...
