Nikon P900 zoom range test. How far can it zoom?

Remember the Kate Middleton photo saga? A topless photo of her taken from a kilometre away?


Have you wondered how it can be possible? Well check out this Nikon Coolpix P900 zoom range test.

Yup, I am as shocked as you 🙂

Not convinced? Here is another clip.

It’s amazing right? This camera has 83x optical zoom. What does that mean? Umm… It has a very very very very… very long zoom range 😛 (as you can see from the clips above).

This camera would definitely be good for private investigator or a secret spy agent. And of course birdwatchers too 🙂 It’s not a big camera nor too small to carry around. This camera weighs approximately 899 grams that will be roughly the weight of two iPad Air.

Here is a hands on review of Nikon P900.

Ted Camera’s ebay store is currently selling this camera at $681 plus $9.95 shipping.

By the way, this is the camera and lens used to take Kate Middleton poolside photos.

Comparing both cameras above, I think Nikon P900 will be on paparazzi’s next must have camera list.

If you are looking for a pocketable compact for everyday shooting camera with a long zoom, my recommendation is Sony Cyber-Shot RX10 IV. Runners up would be Panasonic Lumix DMC-Z2100 (TZ110).
