The Nikon COOLPIX P1000 Has A Massive 125x Optical Zoom Lens

Nikon Coolpix P1000

Feast your eyes on the upcoming Nikon COOLPIX P1000 DSLR camera, with an eye-popping 125x optical zoom, giving you the equivalent focal range of 24mm to 3000mm, allowing you to capture any subject no matter how far away it is.

With this insane zoom, you’re able to shoot objects that are literally miles away, depending on your vantage point. Wildlife enthusiast can capture detailed photos of deadly lions in the wild without risking life and limb for that perfect shot. NASCAR fans can shoot incredibly detailed photos from the cheap seats. Heck, astronomy buffs can capture not just the moon, but the craters, peaks and valleys of its surface!

Man, talk about a game-changer.. No more bags of bulky lenses to swap between, just a simple camera to carry with you, ready to shoot at a moment’s notice. And it’s not super heavy either, weighing in at a reasonable 3.1 pounds.

The Nikon’s massive lens is joined by a 16MP sensor that has a Dual Detect Optical Vibration Reduction system for image stabilization, a 3.2″ vari-angle LCD, a 0.39-inch 2.36 million dot electronic viewfinder, and 4K capability that’ll let you get those close up shots in full Ultra HD resolution. And for greater control of your videos, manual mode allows you to adjust focus, exposure and more during recording.

Even more impressive than the features is the price, coming in at a very reasonable $999 when it hits shelves in September. I spent more on my Sony with a few lenses, and they don’t even begin to offer the versatility of this bad boy.

Still need convincing? Just watch this video showing the camera in action. That first scene in Central Park is beyond impressive.

A commenter said it best: “With this camera, you don’t actually need to travel. Just get up on a high enough building and photograph the place you would have otherwise flown to.” 🙂

Disclosure: I’ve partnered with KEH Camera to show you how easy it is to trade in your old camera gear, but all opinions are my own.

When I started getting serious about photography, I decided to invest the money in a quality DSLR. And after lots of research, I decided on the Canon Rebel T3. It was a great “starter” DSLR, and I have captured some truly remarkable photos with it as I’ve traveled around the world. But it’s getting a little long in the tooth, and I’m ready to upgrade to a newer camera so I can take my photos to the next level.

The two cameras on my short list are the Canon 5D Mark III or the Canon 6D, which are both great cameras in their own right. But if you’ve ever looked at these cameras, you know that they’re both SUPER expensive, with the 5D Mark III costing over $2,000, and that’s just for the body. Ouch!

Luckily, I discovered KEH Camera, the world’s largest online used camera and photography equipment store. KEH has been around since 1979, and they buy and sell used cameras and other camera equipment. I saw that they had a few used Canon 5D Mark III cameras in stock, including one in “Excellent Plus” condition for $2,089. So I decided to see what they’d give me for my trusty Canon Rebel T3 and 50mm lens.

The process couldn’t have been easier. I simply entered my camera details in the “I want to sell…” box on the website. From there, they asked me a few questions about the condition of the camera, what’s included with it (battery and charger or body only), and an optional serial number. Based on the information I provided, they gave me a quote of $173.25 for my camera and lens.

If you’re happy with the quote, you can continue the checkout process, where you choose how you would like to get paid (check, PayPal, or KEH Cash). If you’re plan on buying some camera gear for them, use the code LUCKY7 to get 7% off your order (Expires 7/31/17) and if you choose KEH Cash / Gift Card to receive an additional 5% bonus payout.

Afterwards, you simply send your camera to KEH (free shipping), where they will give it a gentle yet thorough cleaning, after which they’ll evaluate the condition. If it’s as you described it, they’ll send you the payment. If they feel it’s in lesser condition, you can either choose to accept their new quote or have it sent back to you (also free shipping). Worst case scenario, you get your gear back cleaner than it was before.

Overall, I couldn’t be happier with the whole experience. KEH has over 35 years of experience in buying and selling used cameras, and the offer great value, excellent service, and quality equipment. I haven’t pulled the trigger just yet, as I still can’t decide between the 5D Mark III and 6D. But once I do, you can be sure that I’ll be ordering it from KEH for a fraction of the price, and using the LUCKY7 promo code to get 7% off my order.

So what do you say? If you’ve been thinking of trading in that old camera of yours for the latest and greatest, visit KEH.com and get a hassle-free quote today. Trust me, you’ll be glad you did.

Moment Camera App

Apple really improved the camera in the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, and my photos have never looked better. But to really take advantage of the new camera, you need to download the free Moment Camera App, which uses gestures to better control light and focus so you can capture photos and videos that require less editing.

The Moment App does three things that are unique:

  • The app introduces gestures to better control focus and light (exposure and temperature) when you’re shooting. These simple gestures are fast, easy to use and help to tighten the edges of your picture.
  • A thumb reachable toolbar lets you quickly switch between photo and video mode, shooting features on/off. And in video mode, frame rate and resolution controls are just a click away.
  • It also works with Moment’s attachable lenses to bring the best of a DSLR to your phone. The Moment Case features a physical shutter button with half-press and full-press functionality. Moment Lenses add wide, telephoto, and macro perspectives to your phone.

Additional features include timed shots, high quality TIFF, and easy framing guides.
