Being a wildlife and landscape photographer shooting with a Nikon D4s with lenses between 14mm and 600mm, I never seem to have the right lens mounted to my camera while traveling in the car or for a shot around the house. I purchased the P1000 to fill the gap and be ready at all times in the car without constantly having to change lenses. It has surpassed all my expectations. My photos are incredibly sharp from macro through telephoto. I normally shoot from a tripod, but the P1000 with its built in camera vibration reduction makes shooting hand held very easy with incredible results even at super telephoto. This camera can do everything my DSLR cameras can as far as shooting modes, exposure compensation, flash, histograms, etc. I love the fact I can adjust my exposure compensation and histogram right through the viewfinder as well as on the back screen in live view. The tilt out screen makes live view easy to help compose your shot when the camera is at an odd angle especially low to the ground and shooting up. I highly recommend this camera for anyone that wants a quality camera that is ready to go at a moments notice to cover anything from wide angle trough super telephoto all in one camera.
I can easily use the auto settings on the P1000. But the camera is capable of so much more and I just cannot learn it on my own. The User´s Manual is useless to me. It is the perfect camera for an iPhone Photographer who is going on vacation and needs it to shoot details or animals too far away for the iPhone, like whales or elephants. It can do a lot more, just making a point. And those things can be photographed in auto. But when I tried to learn how to shoot the Milky Way I felt like I should give up on manual photography. I need a series of YouTube Videos to teach me all the subtleties of the camera compared to an iPhone, not compared to a DSLR or Mirrorless camera. I teach iPhone Photography on cruise ships when we travel and there are a lot more of us who would buy a P1000 if you could teach us how to go from iPhone Photography to P1000 Photography, and the P900 youTubes are not helpful on the P1000 either. I realize this is a narrow market, but it is deep. A P1000 costs less than an iPhone x or 11 Max. So the price is not an issue. It is reaching the millions of seniors with money they are willing to spend if you can make the camera a user friendly experience instead of a stressful one. By the way, these cruises are 4-5 months long and go around the world.
A potential packed camera for extremely wide range of photographers. It is bulky but stable for hand held photography. At the same time, it is much lighter and faster for taking pictures for those who keep a set of lens and devote time in selecting and replacing. The image quality and formats seems alright subject to further usage.
I got this for a recent trip to SF, surprisingly used it more than my iPhone, it´s HEAVY but packed with lots of Goodie mode, easier to operate than my d7000, the zoom is beyond amazing, the pic tone and compensation for a newbie is Great, the down side is the bluetooth connection is complicated and slow. When you reset to factory settings.. It mess up the whole initial setup. But.above all it´s a great camera.
As a real estate appraiser, I have been using 35MM cameras for the past 40 years. I initially used Olympus equipment but switched to Nikon digital cameras about 15 years ago. I have been using a Nikon D70 and a D60 but recently purchased the P1000. I read many reviews and did quite a bit a research before purchasing it. I am totally amazed by what this camera can do. The size of the camera is the only drawback. It´s a small price to pay for what this camera can do. I love it.
The Coolpix P1000 is great for documenting ecological field work due to its size and versatility. I do not have to carry a large number of lenses to document plants, animals, and their habitats. Pictures have good resolution.
Bought this camera about 1 month ago learning to use it love love it. I also have a d3500 dslr I love Nikon products. This p1000 is clear sharp and captures wildlife for me and flowers which is what I love to shoot. It is amazing so far and will be even more amazing as I learn it better. It is a computer in a camera a good buy and I love snap bridge and the wi fi Bluetooth capability.
The image stabilization is incredible at the long focal lengths. I use it mostly for a spotter camera/ scope when hiking. Then I try to get closer and use my D2x or D7200 to get better images.
I find the metering difficult and the camera often jumps off faces and exposes for brighter backgrounds in portraits. But I don´t use it for portraits very often. Overall it has become my toddler that I always toss in my trunk for unexpected opportunities.
The images are excellent when you consider this is a point and shoot camera. The images are generally usable if it turns out I can´t get closer with my pro equipment. My philosophy is, first get the shot then improve as I get closer. So this is useful when wild life may move on before I get close enough for my pro cameras and lenses.
I´ve had the camera for about 3 weeks so I have a lot to learn but am loving it! Worth every penny!
