Take ultra high-power zoom to the next level with the new 16.1-megapixelPIXELThe shortening of 'picture element', a basic unit of programmable colour forming the dots that make up an image. Pixel size depends on a camera’s resolution, which is measured in megapixels (MP), meaning millions of pixels. The more pixels on a sensor, the smaller they have to be to fit. An image's number (or density) of pixels correlate to the amount of information and image holds. Cameras with more pixels on the sensor have a higher pixel density and thus more resolving power, able to capture smaller details with much more clarity and accuracy. Higher resolution images can be cropped more agressively and also produce better quality large prints. P900 and get closer to your subjects with 83x optical zoom (24mm -2000mm equivalent in 35mm format) and 166x Dynamic Fine Zoom (approximately 4000mm equivalent in 35mm format). With the new Dual Detect Optical Vibration Reduction (VR) feature, your shots are stabilised at a shutter speedSHUTTER SPEEDAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Shutter speed is the length of time that a single frame is exposed for, more specifically how fast the shutter opens and closes to permit light entering the lens, to reach the sensor. A slow shutter speed means a longer exposure time useful for motion blur like the silky look of flowing water, whereas a fast shutter speed means a shorter exposure time useful for freezing the appearance of motion in images like a hummingbird in flight. It is measured in seconds starting at 1 second and halving our doubling in time.
For example: 1/2s, 1/4s and 1/8s are all fractions of a second with 1/2s being the longest exposure time, 1/4s half of that and 1/8s another half etc. of approximately 5.0 stops faster, letting you capture clearer imagery. Shoot with the Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) with eye sensor, or flip out the 3-inch vari-angle LCD monitor for more unique photo compositions. Connect to your smart devices with ease by simply using the built-in Wi-Fi or NFC. All in a compact and stylish body, with a rechargeable Li-ion battery that delivers the longest battery life in its class.
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 ISO Exposure is controlled by three elements: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. The ISO speed determines how sensitive a camera's sensor is to incoming light. A higher ISO speed absorbs more light, resulting in a brighter exposure, however, a higher ISO also results in more digital noise in low-light conditions. Cameras with larger sensors (like full-frame cameras) typically have higher ISO speed capability and produce less digital noise at high ISO settings. Digital cameras include a control for adjusting ISO speed, some of which can be set to adjust automatically in combination with certain other exposure settings. ISO is indicated in numbers usually starting at 100 and going upward (200, 400, 800, 1600 etc.) doubling in sensitivity each time. Most cameras also indicate 3rd stop intervals (100, 125, 180, 200 etc.)of 6400 and delivers clear imagery with excellent contrastCONTRASTThe difference between areas of different brightness levels in a photograph: A high-contrast image has a greater difference between light and dark areas, whereas a low-contrast image has a narrow range of tones. Contrast is used to direct a viewer’s attention to a photographer’s subject either with colour contrast (bold versus duller colours) or tonal contrast (bright versus darker tones). .
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 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 at wide-angle and 0.75 seconds at telephotoTELEPHOTOA lens with long focal length capable of making distant objects appear nearer thus larger. Essentially, it isolates and magnifies the subject so that it appears as a full image when shooting from a distance. Telephoto lenses are ideal for photographing subjects that are further away, such as wildlife and sports photography. 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 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.
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 ExposureEXPOSUREExposure is controlled by three elements: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. Achieving the correct exposure is similar to collecting rain in a bucket, up to an optimum level. The rate of rainfall is out of your control (light), yet you can control these three factors: the bucket’s width (lens aperture), the duration you leave it in the rain (shutter speed), and how effective your bucket is in collecting rain (ISO). These three elements work together to control the amount of light per unit area, preventing underexposure (too dark) or overexposure (too bright), giving you a natural looking image. 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.
