Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 10th July 2018: Nikon introduces the all-new COOLPIX P1000, the world’s only compact camera to boast a 125x optical zoom.¹ From moonscapes to wildlife and distant aircraft, users can capture subjects that were out of reach—until now.

This extraordinary 16 MP camera makes capturing amazing photos and movies easy. The 125x optical zoom offers the world’s biggest zoom range of 24–3000mm.¹ ² And the 250x Dynamic Fine Zoom digitally extends the upper limit to an incredible 6000 mm.² ³ That’s enough zoom power to capture craters on the moon.

A bright f/2.8 NIKKOR lens delivers superb results in low light. Nikon’s advanced lens technologies minimise distortion for remarkably sharp images, even when shooting at ultra-high-telephoto focal lengths. RAW support lets photographers save and export uncompressed image files to their processing/editing programme of choice. And movie shooters can record super-telephoto 4K/UHD video footage: perfect when filming distant wildlife in their natural habitat.

Ines Bernardes, product manager at Nikon Europe, comments: “If you want to capture photos of a supermoon or film hatchlings leaving the nest, the COOLPIX P1000 is for you. The incredible wide-angle to super-telephoto zoom range means you have the freedom to take in the whole scene, or zoom in on the tiniest details. This compact megazoom is also less than a quarter of the weight of a DSLR camera with super-telephoto lens attached, which makes it great for hiking or travelling.”
