Zoom like never before
The P900 delivers the highest zoom in its class with 83x optical zoom (24mm - 2000mm equivalent in 35mm format) and 166x Dynamic Fine Zoom*1 (approximately 4000mm equivalent in 35mm format), enabling you the power to get up close and personal with the most distant of subjects. A Snap-Back Zoom function is incorporated to help capture moving subjects as they fall out of frame, and Side Zoom Control minimises camera shake while zooming.
Revel in superior image quality
With an impressive 16.1 effective megapixels and an EXPEED C2 image-processing engine, the P900 provides sharp imagery with rich and vibrant colours. The revolutionary NIKKOR lens is designed with a Super Extra-low Dispersion Glass element, which reduces chromatic aberration, and allows for a remarkably compact body. Even in low light conditions, the backlight illumination CMOS sensor enables for a maximum ISO of 6400 and delivers clear imagery with excellent contrast.
Performance that goes above and beyond
Achieve crisp photos and videos with Dual Detect Optical Vibration Reduction (VR), where shots are stabilised at a shutter speed of approximately 5.0 stops*2 faster for enhanced blur-reduction accuracy, while ACTIVE mode compensates for image blur caused by shooting while on the move. Experience improved high-speed response time with reduced shooting time lag of approximately 0.12 seconds*4 at wide-angle and 0.75 seconds*5 at telephoto position, so you can focus and capture moving subjects quickly and easily. For more freedom and flexibility to shoot your subjects as you see fit, a variety of continuous shooting functions are just a simple click away. It also features unique bird-watching and moon modes that perfectly complement super-telephoto capabilities and enable simple focusing and easy shooting.
Pure photography pleasure
The P900 is designed with an approximately 921k-dot 3-inch vari-angle TFT LCD monitor, giving you the flexibility to capture dramatic high or low angle shots. Alternatively, the electronic viewfinder gives you the freedom to take control, as the built-in eye sensor detects your eye and automatically switches from monitor shooting to viewfinder shooting. Frequently used functions can also be designated to the Fn button, conveniently located on the body, so you can change preferred settings with one simple touch. All you need is one hand to operate the camera as the command and mode dials are now conveniently located for ease of use.
Stay in touch at all times
Connect to your smart device with the built-in Wi-Fi® and NFC*3 by simply downloading the free Wireless Mobile Utility app*6, available for both iOS and Android devices. When connected, you can use your smart device to trigger the P900 remotely, as well as pre-select images for transfer once you’re connected via Wi-Fi®. Track detailed location information such as longitude, latitude and distance between buildings or landmarks at higher speeds and accuracy with GPS, GLONASS, and QZSS support*7.
A personal touch to every image
Add your own flair and creativity to every image with a host of functions available in the P900. The COOLPIX Picture Control function allows for further image adjustment, such as setting the contrast of the image. Create unique images by overlaying up to three images with the Multiple Exposure function.
More than just pictures
Create crisp and sharp Full HD movies by shooting in 1080/60p with stereo sound. The P900 comes equipped with side zoom control which minimises camera shake, and a zoom microphone that changes directivity according to where you are zooming at, so your movies sound great too. A Time-lapse Movie function creates 10-second movies from still images captured at various intervals. By selecting a shooting scene such as cityscape, sunset or star trail, the camera does all the work for you as the Time-lapse function automatically selects the appropriate interval required for your desired movie.
Designed to impress
Styled like a DSLR, the P900 weighs just approximately 899g (with battery and SD memory card) and has dimensions of 139.5mm (width) x 103.2mm (height) x 137.4mm (depth). The grip has been designed to provide sufficient grasping area with a moderately inclined shutter-release button for ease of holding. The P900 comes equipped with an EN-EL23 Rechargeable Li-ion Battery, ensuring a dramatically improved battery life and reduced charging times, letting you spend less time charging and more time shooting.
