Things to note

Getaway (South Africa) - - PHOTOGRAPHY MASTERCLASS -

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.
