Nickon Coolpix p900

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine brought a nickon coolpix p900 on release last week £499  what a great piece of kit for the point and click astro photgrapher. i had a quick go of it and took a few moon pics, came out very well has i literally was just pointing a clicking, no tripod.

Have no idea how good this would be on a tripod and using manual settings for iso/timings etc but was impressed on auto just pressing a button.

a few of the features it has 

  • Capture details not visible to the naked eye with the 83x NIKKOR zoom lens - extendable to 166x Dynamic Fine Zoom
  • Back-illuminated 16MP CMOS image sensor enables clear, richly detailed images which are easy to achieve, even at night
  • Get fast and detailed location information with GPS/GLONASS/QZSS international satellite systems tracking your route
  • Share images anywhere, using the one-touch Wi-Fi button ot tapping the NFC enabled camera to a smart device.
  • Full HD movies have high-quality directional sound, as the Zoom microphone changes direction to match how you operate the zoom

Be curious to see if it functions well on DSO applications. Been looking at an easy beginning to astrophotography. This may be a good option.

You can't remove the lens it won't offer room to grow in to using a telescope, £500 buys a lot of second hand DSLR and leaves plenty change.

Does appear to have ED glass which is good reading dpreview.com
