When I saw the first samples of the zoom range of the Nikon Coolpix P900, I was duly impressed. So much zooming power in a single device! No, it isn’t perfect, certainly not in terms of picture quality at 2000mm – but those pictures are better than what some smartphone cameras deliver in somewhat more difficult circumstances at normal focal length.
I was ready to prepare a blog post about this camera… After a few days of reflection, however, I knew there would be enough talk about this camera on the internet even without my mention. Then came this video, using the P900 to document the moon in quite some detail, and that made me change my mind.
Impressive? I think so! Just bring a tripod if you want to use this camera for serious telezoom pictures… For photographs of Pluto you should head over to NASA’s New Horizons website.
