Things to note
The new Nikon Coolpix P1000 digital bridge camera is an interesting addition to Nikon’s growing stable of compact zoom cameras. With a 125x zoom lens equivalent to a 3 000mm focal length, this camera will appeal to wildlife photography enthusiasts. Aperture starts at f/2.8 and closes down to f/8 at full zoom. This is not a small compact camera – it weighs in at 1,4kg, so you’ll need a sturdy tripod, especially when using full zoom. It has a 16-megapixel sensor and 4k video, so quality should be right up there. Get it for around R17 995 from Orms in Cape Town, Kamaraz in Johannesburg or online at outdoorphoto.co.za.
