Features:

“With its spectacular 83x zoom range, extensive list of innovative features and advanced controls, the new Nikon COOLPIX P900 is the first COOLPIX compact camera to ever offer this amazing zoom range and powerful features together in an easy-to-use package,” said Masahiro Horie, Director of Marketing and Planning, Nikon Inc. “The COOLPIX P900 will provide users with the opportunity to capture sharp images and video in rich detail near or far, and to share their content with family and friends with confidence.”

Zooming Brilliance with New Nikon COOLPIX P900
The COOLPIX P900 demonstrates the incredible capabilities of NIKKOR optics by sporting a powerful 83x optical zoom (24-2000mm equivalent) NIKKOR ED glass lens with the ability to reach 166x using Dynamic Fine Zoom and a super extra-low dispersion (ED) glass element, making this camera ideal for capturing sharp images and videos from extreme lengths. This feature-packed long zoom is equipped with a 16-megapixel CMOS sensor and a high performance Autofocus (AF) system capable of shooting 7 frames-per-second (fps) to help deliver photos of fast moving sports in superb quality. Sharing these amazing photos has never been easier or more fun, as the COOLPIX P900 allows users to seamlessly shoot and share photos from the camera to a compatible smartphone or tablet via built-in Wi-Fi®1 and NFC2 connectivity.

Whether shooting above a crowd or from the stands, users can easily and intuitively frame their subjects by using the camera’s built-in electronic viewfinder (EVF) with an eye sensor or high-resolution, Vari-angle 3-inch 921K-dot LCD display. When sitting in the upper deck at a baseball game or taking photos of the family at a summer barbeque, the COOLPIX P900’s versatile controls and features makes it a great companion for every shooting scenario. Users can utilize the camera’s snap-back zoom button to effortlessly frame subjects when shooting super-telephoto shots, while the Side Zoom Control button’s position helps to combat camera shake. Additionally, the camera has an intuitive control layout, with the Fn (function) button providing fast access to frequently used functions, plus the Command Dial and Mode Dial allow users to quickly apply or adjust settings with just one hand. The COOLPIX P900 also features Manual (spot), Manual (normal) and Manual (wide) AF Area Mode options that can be selected in accordance with the size and position of the primary subject.

Taking great action shots is easy with the super-fast COOLPIX P900, as it boasts a speedy shooting lag time of approximately 0.12 seconds** at the maximum wide-angle position and approximately 0.75 seconds** at the maximum telephoto position. This rapid performance allows users to capture clear back-to-back shots of a runner dashing toward the finish line or a baseball player headed towards home plate with rich detail. What’s more, the camera incorporates the new Dual Detect Optical VR technology to help achieve the highest level of camera shake compensation available in a Nikon compact digital camera, equivalent to a 5.0-stop***increase in shutter speed to help ensure sharp photos.

For those looking to expand their creativity, the COOLPIX P900 offers fun and user-friendly features like Scene Modes, filter effects, special effects, Picture Controls and macro mode to help users not only find the best settings for nearly any environment, but allow them to add a personal touch to every image or video. Whether users are shooting a school play indoors or out on the slopes, the COOLPIX P900 provides Scene Modes and filter effects that help achieve optimal results without missing a shot. Additionally, users can capture video in Full HD 1080p with stereo audio recording or use the camera’s innovative Time Lapse feature to capture a beautiful sunrise or sunset video over the course of time. When recording video from afar, the Zoom Microphone function helps to enables clear recording of sounds from a variety of distances. Lastly, the COOLPIX P900 makes it easy to document every vacation spot or outdoor adventure as the camera’s built-in GPS and POI allows users to geo-tag images and view where those images were taken on a map.
