In manual mode does the ISO default to a set number once exposure time is greater than 1 second?
Asked by: Brian
We are not sure of the behavior of the P1000 since it is not out yet and we do not have access to enough information at this time. Going off the P900 however, we see that in manual mode, when set to Auto or Fixed range auto, the ISO sensitivity is fixed at ISO 100. This appears to apply to anything regarding exposure time.

Is Nikon planning on a battery grip for this beast?
Asked by: Abe
There are no plans for a grip for the P1000. If Nikon does come out with a grip, they will announce it on their website.

How fast is it from turn on to focus to shoot? I bet not as fast as my DSLR.
Asked by: Anonymous
We were not able to find any mention regarding power on speed, fast or slow. Once in our store, we will be able to test. Our opinion is that you are probably right it will not turn on as fast as a DSLR but it will still be more than adequate for its many fans.

Hellow quick question, can this camera shoot in a night vision mode or infrared for night time sky photography?
Asked by: Kevin W.
For night sky photography capturing the Milky Way, you do not need night vision or infrared. In fact, neither would get you the look you are looking for. Ideally, you would use a full frame sensor camera and a quality wide angle prime lens (plus a tripod) to do astrophotography. The P1000 camera will do very well capturing a close up of the moon. However, it would not be a good choice for night time sky photography. That is because the sensor is too small for good and the lens too slow for low light capture. Shooting the night sky means no more than a 30 second exposure otherwise the stars move too much and become not beautiful point of light but ugly blur. You can do that with a full frame camera and fast prime lens and not with the P1000. And finally, to answer your question, there is no night vision or infrared in the P1000.
