Nikon Coolpix P1000 (P900 Replacement) — My Realistic Wishlist.

by Anura Guruge



I am being totally realistic.

I would LOVE to see a 1″ sensor BUT I know that that would not be technologically possible for that level of zoom — unless it was going to be a mounted on wheels!

I am NOT that fussed about the higher resolution either. Let’s face it — this is 1/2.3″ sensor. I am fine with the current 16MP but I know Nikon will insist on giving me at least 20MP. C’est la vie.

Now for the shocker. I am not that hung up on 125x zoom either! 

100x might do, provided we can keep max. aperture in the f/2.8 to 6.5 range. A larger aperture will be a BONUS.

But what I have above is what I would really want.

It will NOT be just the Nikon Coolpix P900 replacement. Other cameras and lenses too will be announced.

It will be Nikon’s first announcement of 2017 — 100 days into the year. That is very atypical for them. BUT, it has been a troubling year for Nikon.

However, after the 1″ DL series fiasco I will not be holding my breath for the new Monster-Zoom. I will get it when it is available BUT I am not going to get too excited beforehand.

I will, of course, keep you posted.

As yet it is BUT a rumor, and to be fair there has been speculation for at least 6 months that the P900, when it comes, will indeed have this type of ultrazoom capability.

This would be amazing.

I love my Nikon P900 — which I have now had for 7 months. That is a long time for I.

I used the P900 yesterday. It takes AMAZING pictures with NO FUSS.

If not for my preoccupation with SIZE, in this case Sensor Size, I would not use/need another camera. But, the P900 is a 1/2.3″ and that always niggles me.

After what we went through with the 1″ Nikon DL series I am NOT going to hold my breath for this replacement

One thing I do know. I will get it once Nikon announces it. That is a NO BRAINER. Not sure what I will do with my P900. I might even keep it for posterity.
