If you’re a keen photographer of wildlife or the night sky, the 16-megapixel COOLPIX P900’s incredible 83x optical zoom lets you capture details not visible to the naked eye. Shoot instantly with rapid AF and a reduced shooting time lag, while 5.0-stop Dual Detect Optical VR enhances blur reduction.
Enjoy flexible composition with the vari-angle monitor and built-in electronic viewfinder, for shooting detailed stills at super-telephoto and Full HD movies. Built-in GPS/GLONASS/QZSS support pinpoints shooting locations and images can be shared instantly with built-in Wi-Fi®¹ and NFC² support.
Styled for comfortable shooting, the COOLPIX P900 brings you closer than ever to the beauty of nature
Capture astounding details not visible to the naked eye with the 83x NIKKOR zoom lens – extendable to 166x Dynamic Fine Zoom¹ – covering from 24mm wide-angle to 2000mm telephoto (35 mm format equivalent).
Hand-held telephoto shooting is stable as VR detects movement from the lens (angular velocity sensor) and the imaging sensor (motion vector information) simultaneously, improving vibration absorption.
Clear, richly detailed images are easy to achieve, even at night. Expect great performance and sharp shots with low noise from the sensitive image sensor.
Get fast and detailed location information wherever you’re shooting, with GPS/GLONASS/QZSS international satellite systems tracking your route with incredible accuracy.
Share your favourite wildlife or nature images as you travel, by using the one-touch Wi-Fi®² button or simply tapping your NFC-enabled³ camera to a smart device³.
Never miss a decisive moment when shooting unpredictable wildlife or rapidly changing skies, thanks to more rapid AF and reduced shooting time lag (approx. 0.12 sec at wide-angle).⁴
Large vari-angle LCD monitor: It’s easy to explore creative viewpoints and frame fast-changing action with the flexible Clear Color Display 7.5-cm/3.0-in approx. 921k-dot vari-angle LCD monitor (RGBW). Anti-reflection coating ensures optimum visibility in all light conditions.
Full HD movies: Super-smooth movies (1080/60p) come with high-quality sound, as the microphone changes directivity with the zoom. Switch swiftly from stills to movie making with the dedicated movie record button.
Time-lapse movie: Impressive Time-lapses can be created easily. Just select a shooting scene and a 10-second time-transition movie will be produced from stills captured with interval timing.
Zoom microphone: Your Full HD movies are guaranteed to have high-quality directional sound, as the Zoom microphone changes direction to match how you operate the zoom.
Super ED glass element: You can capture subjects in rich detail with the ultra-powerful zoom, yet the lens barrel remains compact and delivers superior chromatic aberration characteristics, thanks to the Super ED glass element.
Moon and Bird-watching modes: Hard-to-shoot subjects like the moon and birds become easy to capture with Scene auto selector enabling simple focusing and settings, so you’ll always get exceptional results.
Wide viewing angle: Creative composition and unusual viewpoints are made simple with the wide-viewing-angle LCD monitor. Shoot high-angle over obstacles or low-angle to capture an animal’s eye-line.
Customisable Function (Fn) button:Personalise your shooting experience by assigning frequently used functions to the Fn button. One-touch operation can then change the settings.
Mode Dial: Access to key settings like manual exposure (P/S/A/M) is made simple with the mode dial, situated at the top of your camera for easy operation with a single hand.
Target finding AF: Save your attention for the creative work of composing your shot, as Target finding AF quickly and precisely locates your subject and focuses on it automatically for you.
COOLPIX Picture Control: Manage the look of your images easily with Picture Control options like Neutral for natural shots, Vivid for colourful images, Monochrome for black and white or Custom to adjust up to two settings such as contrast or saturation.
Built-in electronic viewfinder: Framing shots is effortless – whatever your shooting style – as an eye sensor automatically switches from display shooting when your eye gets close to the viewfinder.
Snap-back zoom button: It’s simple to recapture a subject that moves out of frame in ultra telephoto shooting, with a one-touch button next to the zoom control that instantly takes you back to wide-angle focus.
Side zoom control: You’ll always get sharp shots and smooth movies with the side zoom control that lets you operate the zoom with your left hand, preventing camera shake and maintaining stability.
Long battery life: Keep shooting longer when it counts, with the improved energy-saving design of the battery giving increased capacity for both stills and Full HD movies.
Flash compensation: Get perfectly balanced exposures with flash compensation (-2 to +2 EV) helping to balance the level of flash on a subject with the background for natural-looking images.
19 Scene modes: Your camera can advise you on the best settings for your shooting situation. Just choose the scene that best matches your subject and conditions, and it will automatically optimise its settings.
EXPEED C2: You’re guaranteed outstanding image quality with Nikon’s fast and powerful image processing system ensuring high-speed operation and high-sensitivity performance.
