42X More Optical Zoom Than Nikon  Nikon P900

One of the major difference we are getting in between these two models are the massive zoom lens in Nikon P1000 camera. The camera features 125X optical Zoom Lens which is of course  42X more optical Zoom than its predecessor.

27.9 mm, 1/40 sec, f/5, ISO 100, +1.3 EV

Macro Mode 1cm

Despite of adding such a completely new lens, which extends the Zoom lens its predecessor camera from 2000mm to 3000mm, that is you are getting 42X MORE optical zoom range than Nikon P900.

Introduction of RAW (NRW) File Format

Now the Nikon P1000 camera captures images RAW format. Before that it was not possible to have a RAW file from Nikon P9xx series camera. Its, a superb addition, and we really appreciate it.

4K Video

Nikon P1000 camera now captures 4K video at 30 Frames second, the camera have a limit of 4GB file size or 29Min recording. Literally the P1000 camera is the only Megazoom camera which features a 100X + optical zoom lens and a option to have 4K video recording.

Heavy on Hands

The camera weigh 1.42kg just like DSLR with lens, so if you have a habit of carrying DSLR with Lenses then you will have no issue.


Nikon P1000 is one of the best Megazoom camera available with 125X optical zoom lens. No other camera maker is able to cross 100X optical zoom barrier. One of the best multi-purpose camera out there. We highly recommend you to get Nikon P1000.

6 comments to Nikon P1000 vs Nikon P900

    The features comparison table shows the P1000 to not have a hot shoe.

    According to
    the P1000 has a hot shoe.

    As the P1000 and P900 both have 16MP resolution, a comparison including the B700, which has 20MP resolution, and UHD (“4K”) video, would be good.

    I think that, with all of the other specifications of the P1000, it should have a still image resolution, of at least 20MP, if not 24MP.

  • Phillip Piggott

    It is a big heavy monster of a camera so please explain to me how the average user can really make use of the extra reach from 2,000mm (P900) to 3,000mm.
    Plus it is not a touch screen.

    You have the weight green under the P1000. It should be green under the P900. It’s lighter. Also, it would be easier to compare if both weights were Grams – or Kilograms, but not mixed.

  • Bret Busby in Australia

    Phillip Piggott – regarding the camera being “a big heavy monster of a camera”; it is a specialised camera, as were/are the Pentax 645 (film camera) (weight – 1.31kg without lens), 645D (digital camera, 40MP),

    Weight (inc. batteries) 1480 g (3.26 lb / 52.21 oz)
    Dimensions 156 x 117 x 119 mm (6.14 x 4.61 x 4.69″)

    without lens,
    with the lens “SMC PENTAX-A 645 80-160mm F4.5” (equiv to 50-100mm 35mm format lens), weighing 1.01kg,
    and the Pentax 67;
    “The camera resembles a traditional 35 mm SLR camera with interchangeable viewfinder and lens, but is considerably bigger and heavier, weighing 2.3 kilograms (5.1 lb)” (without lens).

    Such cameras are best used with a sturdy tripod, and, the Nikon P1000 and P900 (and, I think, B700 and P600, which have WiFi but not NFC) can be controlled using a cellphone or tablet PC, as a modern replacement for a cable release as used with film cameras on tripods.

    So, the size and weight issues, are only as much of a problem, as the user makes them, given the focal length range, and, the need for stability at the maximum focal length ranges of these “super zoom” digital camneras.

    But, as the P600 has 16MP still image resolution, for maximum focal length of 1.44m, and the B700 has 20MP still image resolution for the same maximum focal length, perhaps, the P900, with maximum focal length of 2.0m, should have still image resolution of 20MP, and, the P1000, with maximum focal length of 3.0m, should have still image resolution of 30MP, to retain the proportionality of the P600, of approximately 10MP per metre of lens focal length.

    Nikon riched high density sensor,If make the sensor 24×36 will be 492 Mpix
    5.17×4.55=28.0735 s/mm
    24×36= 864s/mm
    864 / 28.075 = 30.776
    16Mpix X 30.776 = 492.4 Mpix

  • Mark WooWoo

    With the P1000, Nikon has done a brilliant job of zeroing in on the ever growing flat earth community target market. Many people who cared little or nothing about cameras were heaping praise over the P900. Flat Earth forums were ranting about its Zoom capabilities. I have never seen a camera be talked about as much as the P900 in my lifetime. The other major camera makers have been pathetically slow to tap into this new and growing target market called the flat earth community. The P1000 has greatly expanded on the P900’s capabilities. I wouldn’t be surprised if it now becomes the most talked about camera in the world with sales to boot.
