Nikon COOLPIX P1000 digital camera with world’s highest 125x optical zoom lens announced

Nikon today introduced COOLPIX P1000, the company’s latest digital camera with world’s highest 125x optical zoom lens that covers range of focal lengths, beginning at the wide-angle 24mm equivalent, and extending to the super-telephoto 3000mm (up to 250x when Dynamic Fine Zoom is enabled).

The camera uses an upgraded EXPEED image-processing engine, which allows for the capture of high-quality images, and the Dual Detect Optical VR achieves a level of vibration reduction equivalent to a 5.0-stop increase in shutter speed, delivering sharp and clear images, even with hand-held telephoto shooting.
