Nikon Coolpix P900 (REVIEW)

Nikon Coolpix P900

If you’re looking to take up photography, but you don’t want to spend thousands of dollars on a professional camera, the Nikon Coolpix P900 DSLR is just what you need.  It’s amateur friendly, and takes ahhhh-mazing photos!  It is the only camera with 83X zoom, which means, you can shoot to the moon.  I first found out about this amazing camera when I saw a video of it on Facebook shooting the moon!  I immediately looked it up on Amazon, and read many, many reviews just to make sure it was legit.  I mean, I seriously couldn’t believe it could zoom to the moon, and actually capture all the craters up there, but from what I found out, it was totally legit.  So, my awesome hubby decided to order it for me as a 12th anniversary gift!  I was so excited when I received it!  So, of course, my first mission was to shoot the moon!  I’m still in shock at how amazing my pics are!  I’ve taken pics of birds, squirrels, the moon, and have done a small photo shoot with my dogs.  No matter what the situation, this camera is really great at capturing the beauty of just about anything.  The photos come out clean and crisp, and stay that way even through uploading to Facebook, which tends to distort photos, and the pics stay crisp even after cropping!  The only cons about the Nikon Coolpix P900 is that it doesn’t shoot raw, whatever that is… I’m not a professional photographer, so that doesn’t mean much to me.  I’ve just read reviews that say it doesn’t, so, if you need to shoot raw, this isn’t the camera for you.  It doesn’t do live videos, and there is no place to add an external microphone or flash. However, the microphone and flash on the camera work great for my needs.  It’s not like I plan on making a movie with it, or anything like that.  You can get the Nikon Coolpix P900 at Amazon for $559.00, but you will need an SD card in order to use it, so, I suggest purchasing the Memory Card Bundle, which is $582.79.

Here are some of the photos,and a video, I’ve captured with my Coolpix:
