New Nikon Coolpix P1000 – pre-order at Grays of Westminster

The new Nikon Coolpix P1000
with 3000mm zoom

Nikon today introduces the all-new COOLPIX P1000, the world’s only compact camera to boast a 125x optical zoom. From moonscapes to wildlife, distant aircraft to cityscapes, users can capture subjects that were out of reach – until now.

 

This extraordinary 16 Megapixel camera makes capturing striking photos and 4K movies incredibly easy. The 125x optical zoom offers the world’s biggest zoom range of 24–3000mm whilst the 250x Dynamic Fine Zoom digitally extends the upper limit to an incredible 6000mm. That’s enough zoom power to capture craters on the moon.

 

The maximum aperture of f/2.8 delivers superb results in low light whilst Nikon’s advanced lens technologies minimise distortion for remarkably sharp images, even when shooting at ultra-high-telephoto focal lengths. RAW support has also been added to the camera, enabling photographers to save and export uncompressed image files to their processing/editing program of choice. Additionally, movie shooters can record super-telephoto 4K/UHD video footage: perfect when filming distant wildlife in their natural habitat.

 


Ultra-high zoom. The sky is no longer the limit. Shoot with a 125x optical zoom (24–3000mm) and 250x Dynamic Fine Zoom (6000 mm).

Jaw-dropping shots. The bright f/2.8 – f/8 NIKKOR lens, 16 MP sensor, EXPEED image processor, and RAW support combine to deliver sharp results.

Super-telephoto 4K movies. Easily record 4K/UHD 30p footage, or Full HD (1080p) video at frame rates of up to 60p. Film in stereo sound and benefit from clean HDMI out.

Steady images. Dual Detect Optical Vibration Reduction (VR) counters the effects of camera shake for sharper stills and movies. VR Active mode delivers a more stable viewfinder and monitor image.

Any angle. The bright 3.2-in 921k-dot LCD monitor can be tilted and twisted in almost any direction.

Smooth zoom control. A large grip and a side zoom-control ease handling. A snap-back zoom button instantly retracts the lens from super-telephoto to a wider angle, making it easy to pick up subjects that have moved out of shot.

Perfect results. RAW support lets users save and export uncompressed image files to processing/editing programs.

Share the wonder. SnapBridge connectivity lets users sync photos to a smart device as they shoot. SnapBridge also makes it possible to use the smart device to shoot remotely.

 

Price: £999.00
Sales start: 6th September 2018

New Nikkor AF-S 180-400mm f/4E TC1.4 FL ED VR

New Nikkor AF-S 180-400mm f/4E TC1.4 FL ED VR

Recently released, the AF-S NIKKOR 180–400mm f/4E TC1.4 FL ED VR, the first telephoto in the NIKKOR lineup to boast a built-in 1.4x teleconverter. Always sharp and always steady, this zoom lens allows 560 mm of reach the instant the action demands it.

We now have a very small number in stock and available for purchase.

 

From stadium to mountainside, the AF-S NIKKOR 180–400mm f/4E TC1.4 lets you own every advantage out in the field. A solid, well-positioned lever ensures easy, comfortable activation of the teleconverter.

Photographers can increase the 180–400mm (f/4) focal-length range to 560 mm (f/5.6) without adjusting their hold on the camera, or taking their eye away from the viewfinder.

 

The advanced optical design ensures photographers can extend their reach without compromising sharpness. And Nikon’s Vibration Reduction (VR) allows a four-stop advantage, even with the teleconverter engaged.

SPORT VR reliably tracks fast-moving subjects, and advanced autofocus ensures subject-acquisition performance is superb.

Ergonomic advantages include the fact that typical zoom- and focus-ring positions have been reversed for more balanced handling, and a fluorite lens element helps keep the weight down.

 

Price: £10,999.00 inc. VAT
