Nikon P1000 overview

  • 1Description

Shoot at staggering distances with the 125x optical zoom COOLPIX P1000 Digital Camera from Nikon. This camera, which has a 16MP backside illuminated CMOS sensor, features a built-in NIKKOR lens with a 35mm equivalent focal length range of 24-3000mm. You can zoom even further with 250x Dynamic Fine digital zoom, which will give you an equivalent focal length of 6000mm. Coupled with these extreme focal lengths is Nikon's Dual Detect Optical Vibration Reduction, which provides 5 stops of optical image stabilization and ensures your telephoto shots are crisp.

Gracing the back of the camera are a 3.2" vari-angle, 921k-dot LCD monitor and an eye-level 2.36m-dot electronic viewfinder, so your subjects will always be easy to see. The camera is also capable of recording 4K UHD video at 30 or 25 fps and supports an external microphone via a 3.5mm connector.

Camera shake may be a concern while shooting at extreme focal lengths on a tripod. Or, you may need to otherwise remotely operate the P1000. The optional ML-L7 remote satisfies these needs with wireless operation off the camera's zoom, shutter, and other settings. Once you're done with a shoot, immediately access your photos on a paired smartphone via the Nikon SnapBridge app and the camera's built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

16MP BSI CMOS Image Sensor
The backside-illuminated sensor with 16 million effective pixels can output detailed images at sensitivities between ISO 100 and 6400. It can also create 4K UHD movies at 30 or 25 fps.
125x Optical Zoom with Dual Detect Optical Vibration Reduction
An absurd 24-3000mm (35mm equivalent) focal range means few, if any, objects are out of the reach of your lens. Zoom is further enhanced by Dynamic Fine digital zoom, which makes the maximum focal length a ridiculous 6000mm. Dual Detect Optical Vibration Reduction provides 5 stops of optical image stabilization so your handheld shots are crisp.
Dual Viewing Systems
The P1000 features a bright vari-angle 3.2" LCD display that makes composing and reviewing images and movies a breeze. Also available is the 0.39", 2.36 million-dot OLED electronic viewfinder for a more traditional shooting style.
Control Ring and Snapback Button
A control ring at the front of the device can be used for a variety of functions, like adjusting focus, exposure, white balance, and ISO, all from the lens barrel. Also on the barrel is a zoom toggle and a dedicated Snapback button that will make your P1000 quickly zoom out in case you lose sight of your subject at long focal lengths. Releasing the button will return the focal length to its previous position.
Built-In Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
Nikon's SnapBridge technology allows for seamless photo sharing directly from your camera to a paired smartphone device.
Shooting Modes
The P1000 features a slew of shooting modes that adjust settings for different scenarios like sunsets, fireworks, and portraits. The popular Moon Mode is great for shooting Earth's closest neighbor and the new Bird Mode optimizes the camera for capturing the often bright and colorful creatures.
Optional ML-L7 Remote
The ML-L7 remote (not included) can wirelessly adjust a variety of setting such as ISO, zoom, and aperture, in addition to triggering the shutter of the P1000. This lets you maintain precise composition while shooting from a tripod.
Battery Life
The EN-EL20a battery is rated for 250 shots per charge. Recharging takes only approximately 3 hours.

Nikon P1000 reviews

COOLPIX P1000 Digital Camera is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great if you know how to use it best FIRST: A MUST! Turn the NR (Noise Reduction) to LOW. You will be much happier with the sharpness of your photos. Somehow the NR affects the photos more than with the P900. I wish the menu allowed us to turn it off completely. Noise reduction should be done in post-processing and before you do any more with the photo. Also, with full or near full zoom, make sure your shutter speed is high. When I use my elbows as a tripod, I still see much better sharpness with 1/200 shutter speed or above. ISO 200 works great. More with a later review.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stupendous lens with a weak sensor! I was hoping to use this as a bridge and travel companion to my D850. Alas, it is not to be. The Nikon engineering behind this stupendous lens is awe-inspiring! The camera itself if well designed and intuitive. The lens has a jaw-dropping 24-3000, F2.8-8 range with VR and gives some decent pictures at 3000mm even hand held! But the sensor is seriously mismatched for the lens. The clarity is not great with trees appearing as green clumps in the background of landscape pics. When shooting against light, noticed significant flaring and softening all over the frame. The low light noise is as expected. Disappointing picture quality in an otherwise interesting camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it. I'm almost 70 now and have had a lot of cameras over time, from an Argus C3 to a D800. I've been using mine every day since I got it. Trying different things to see what works. Some people complain about the sharpness but I zoom mine out to 3000 and its as sharp as I could hope for. I was shooting a Raven today and you could see all the little microlines in the feathers. I am really happy. B and H gave great service as usual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent. I am writing a review because I read so many reviews to make my decisions and appreciate the folks that take time to write them. Hopefully this helps someone. To provide perspective, I've owned several Nikon DSLRs (D70, D200, D700) and currently use the D750 with the 28-300 mm lens. I have also owned the Nikon P900. My decision to get a P900 (and now P1000) was balanced against getting a 150-600 mm zoom for the D750. After considerable research, I decided the P900 would provide greater capabilities at long zooms with acceptable image quality for anything that far away. It simply allows one to capture images other setups cannot. When the P1000 was announced, I sold my P900 and upgraded. I find the P1000 to meet or exceed my expectations. If your expectations are that you can expand a photo to 100% and observe the sharpness a full-size sensor can provide, you will be sorely disappointed. This is a small senor and pixel peeping begins to show a painted look at 100% magnification. That said, the P1000 images I've taken seem very sharp. The trade-off for the astrological zoom provided by the P1000 in a relatively small frame is a small sensor, which are inherently noisier. If one existed, the lens to achieve that level of zoom on a full-sized sensor would weigh 100 pounds or more and require a cart to move it around. That's just lens physics. Further there are some comparisons by professional photographers out there that demonstrate the D850 with 600 mm + crop (to 16 mp) vs P1000 at 3000 mm equivalent and the P1000 holds its ground, at a much lower price point and much smaller, lighter package. In comparing to the P900, I find the P1000 to be superior in every respect except size. The sharpness and image quality is better in my comparisons, though it is definitely not a major leap for IQ. It has 50% more zoom capability. The electronic viewfinder is excellent, representing a huge improvement over the P900. The addition of the control ring to manually focus, adjust exposure, white balance, etc. greatly bridges problems the P900 had in acquiring focus in difficult situations. Finally, the addition of raw format provides a much greater flexibility to tease out the best of every picture (shot in P, S, A, M & U modes) through post-processing. And those are just the major points. Others includes addition of 4k @30 fps video or 1080p@60 fps. The zoom motor on the P900 is easily heard on videos; it is nearly unnoticeable on the P1000. There is an external flash shoe. It's response time seems quicker than the P900. There are just more options and more levels of control provided. It is a complete upgrade. The downside to 50% more zoom is the camera size. This camera is a beast and on par with the size of a full-size DSLR with moderate zoom lens attached. It is about the same size, but lighter than my D750 with 28-300 lens attached. It is still more convenient and lighter than toting around a zoom lens that only achieves 20% of the zoom the P1000 does. I originally got this to fill a niche at longer focal lengths, but the more I use it, the more I like it for a versatile partner for many situations. This is a new product and I expect a few bugs to show up (I haven't really found any yet), but I also expect firmware updates to hone the performance over time as well. I am very happy "as is". I'd recommend this product and thank Nikon for addressing nearly every suggested improvement to the P900; I am glad I upgraded.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did I receive a bad one? I really wanted to like this camera, but... After months of waiting and reading any review available following the Nikon announcement in July I have been disappointed. I am an experienced photographer with over thirty years of loving everything photography. I purchased this Nikon P1000 following many hours of research. The camera finaly arrived yesterday. After a careful unpacking, I charged the battery, inserted a new SanDisk 128GB Extreme Pro card and started the setup. Everything looked good until I tried using the zoom feature. At full zoom (3000mm equivalent) the image seemed hazy. I checked again on a tripod with VR turned off... same results. I then noticed that the camera would sporatically allow me to use the digital zoom feature... well today, the camera has locked up on me three times. The first time, the camera displayed a message on screen requesting that I power cycle the camera. The last time required me to pull the battery. I also tried using two other SD cards that are verified good. Let's see how easy this camera is to return.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Amazingly poor quality First good, this has mind-blowing 3000mm zoom, that is it. When you hold in hand it is like cheap plastic. The hardware failure out the box, the Fn button did not work. Autofocus very poor, focusing Sun with manual or auto focus is out of question. I expect it to be little cheaper with the quality it offer but just buying a camera for 3000mm zoom, may be. I am disappointed by Nikon for producing a poor quality. I owned both Sony and Canon, those products have quality which you love.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A very big and heavy camera I agree with all the reviews above. Like the rest, I've did the research and read the reviews and was expecting more from this camera. The lens quality sucks at full extension. The images aren't sharp. I call it the Hulk. I'm a woman and it is a very big camera for a woman. Make sure you have the camera strap around your neck, because it is hard to hold. If you are a man your hand size is much larger and probably alright with the size. I'm thinking about returning it, but not sure what kind of ding I will take doing it.. I just received it Tuesday and just now tried it. The close ups look good. Make sure if you purchase this camera it is what you are looking for in the lens quality at the full telephoto. Here are a few quick photos I snapped at closeup and full telephoto. They are hand held and the last couple of shots I supported at full telephoto. The second picture posted is supported at full range. Notice the edges of the poles and line. I usually shoot manual, but had it on program, full sunny day. I've been a photographer for 49 years, and I am disappointed in this camera. I will try the manual setting and the other features before I decide if I'm going to try and returning it.
