    I purchased this camera recently, & although I have lots to learn, it was easy to use from the start! The zoom is great for photos of wildlife in my bush garden, but I can also take lovely closeups of flowers & insects. Read more

    I was looking for a digital SLR with good quality lenses but got put onto the Coolpix by a work mate. No need to swap out lenses which cuts down on what you need to lug about. The zoom is so good you can see someone changing their mind a day and a half away. Read more

    The zoom power of the COOLPIX P900 is nothing short of spectacular. This is 83x (2000mm equivalent) optical zoom—more than any Nikon COOLPIX yet. Advanced shooters will appreciate the outstanding image quality and DSLR styling—a sure grip, a swiveling Vari-angle display, a high-resolution Electronic... Read more
