A telephoto monster Nikon P1000 technology review


Since the release of the Nikon P900, people have been paying attention to the telephoto camera. It looks like a SLR shape, and its simple and convenient shooting experience, as well as its long focal length, is undoubtedly very popular with the public. Faced with the impact of the mobile phone and micro-camera market, the telephoto camera has less impact, and its biggest advantage lies in telephoto.

The average card machine and mobile phone can not take into account the ultra telephoto, and the price of the telephoto lens is very expensive, and those who want to go to the world with a mirror have a new choice.

The newly released Nikon Coolpix P1000 still continues the fine lineage of the previous generation. The official even claimed to be able to photograph the crater on the moon.

This time, the photography industry blasted the pot instantly, and the astronomical telescope could not do it. This is obviously me. The exclusive field is ok. Having said that, although the current smartphones have already eroded the market share of most camera manufacturers, they are still invincible in the telephoto field.

So what new technology will the Nikon P1000 have to make it fearless astrophotography? Let’s take a look at the technical review of the Nikon P1000.

On the hardware side, the Nikon Coolpix P1000 is equipped with a new 1/2.3-inch back-illuminated CMOS sensor with 16.05 million effective pixels and ISO up to 6400.

The traditional CMOS sensor, because the circuit blocks the light sensing surface, the light passing through the lens is discounted, and the sensitivity is not so good. The back-illuminated CMOS sensor hides the circuit beneath the light sensing surface, allowing each pixel to capture light directly. This back-illuminated CMOS sensor produces high-quality images with low noise, and can achieve good image quality in high-sensitivity shooting environments such as shooting night scenes or dimly lit rooms.

With Nikon’s exclusive EXPEED image processor, it delivers a higher level of image quality, detail and processing speed, optimizes optical performance, and captures beautiful images in complex and variable scenes. With the support of the EXPEED image processor, continuous shooting speeds of up to 7 frames per second can be achieved. Support for shooting RAW format, providing plenty of space for the post. Standard, natural, vivid, and monochrome, as well as two custom color modes, are easily implemented with built-in Picture Control.

For the lens, 12 sets of 17 optical structures, 5 low-dispersion ED lenses and 1 enhanced low-dispersion ED lens are used to ensure a wide zoom range while maintaining image quality. In general, the chromatic aberration problem that is likely to occur during high-magnification zooming, and the use of a large number of low-dispersion ED lenses can effectively improve these chromatic aberration problems.

The Nikon Coolpix P1000 offers an exceptional zoom experience with a range of 4.3–539mm, which is equivalent to 125x optical zoom, equivalent to a full-frame focal length 24-3000mm zoom lens, wide-angle end maximum aperture f/2.8, maximum telephoto end Aperture f/8, with “moon mode” and “bird watching mode”, you can zoom in on the framing screen with one click. The lens filter has a diameter of 77mm, and the large diameter can increase the amount of light passing through. What is the concept of 3000mm, and it is almost catching up with the astronomical telescope. Nikon’s longest 800mm lens is about 100,000. This can also capture the details of the moon crater.

The Nikon Coolpix P1000 is equipped with a 2.359-megapixel high-resolution 0.39-inch OLED electronic viewfinder and a 3.2-inch reversible TFT LCD display, which enhances the visibility of the framing even in the glare of sunlight, and supports omnidirectional flipping. Unlock more shooting positions. With eye-sensing, you can switch between the monitor and the viewfinder whether you are shooting or viewing photos.

The latest VR damping function, capable of shooting 4K stable images

  The Nikon Coolpix P1000 uses dual-detection optical VR VR to provide a shock-absorbing effect equivalent to about 5 shutter speeds, even in high-magnification zooms, you don’t have to worry too much about image blur. The principle is to detect the camera shake information by detecting two types of camera shake information, such as angular velocity sensor and sensor, to achieve accurate and stable camera shake compensation. In general, holding a camera for long-distance shooting can also effectively suppress camera shake and achieve sharp and clear images.

The camera also supports 4K/30p Ultra HD shooting video to capture more detail. Video with stereo channels can be taken with an external microphone via the 3.5mm interface. It also supports lossless HDMI image output, which not only enables data streaming, but also expands the use of video data.

Nikon’s Coolpix series has always been a model of excellent telephoto cameras. Compared with the previous generation of the Coolpix P900s, the 83x zoom is already exaggerated. The latest release of the Coolpix P1000 has reached 125 times the zoom, and it will be telephoto. The advantage becomes its label. When traveling abroad, it is not afraid of the camera’s focal length is not enough, you can’t take the picture you want. Even if you watch the concert, you can take the idol like the top of the mountain. It is just a concert artifact.
