P900How does a 2000 mm lens sound? Wild, right? Well, Here’s Nikon with the Coolpix P900 and an 83X lens (166X if you engage Dynamic Fine Zoom, for something on the order of 4000 mm).

In addition to this super zoom, the 16-megapixel camera comes equipped with an array of innovative features and advanced controls for capturing sharp and detailed images, says the company, as well as Full HD video. Such features include built-in GPS and Snapbridge, where users seamlessly shoot and share photos from the camera to a compatible smartphone or tablet via built in Wi-Fi and Near Field Communication technology (NFC2).

But back to that lens. It’s the equivalent of 24-2000 mm, using Nikkor ED glass and a super extra-low dispersion (ED) glass element. A high performance autofocus (AF) system is capable of shooting 7 frames per second (fps).

The camera has a built-in electronic viewfinder (EVF) with an eye sensor, as well as a high-resolution, Vari-angle 3-inch LCD display. There’s a snap-back zoom button. The Side Zoom Control button’s position helps to combat camera shake.

The camera offers features such as Scene Modes, filter effects, special effects, Picture Controls and macro mode.

Uers can capture video in Full HD 1080p with stereo audio recording or use the camera’s Time Lapse feature. The Zoom Microphone function enables the clear recording of sounds from a variety of distances.
