Moon video recorded with 83x zoom Nikon Coolpix P900 shows Earth's rotation
With a 2000mm equivalent zoom range, the Nikon Coolpix P900 leads the current ultrazoom class in terms of reach. While there's no question that the camera has an impressive zoom range, a nature photographer based in Germany has made it ever-so-obvious just how powerful this little ultrazoom is. His YouTube video of the moon shows that at 83x optical zoom the lens' magnification is so powerful, the rotation of the Earth is easily seen as the subject drifts through the frame.
Pretty impressive for a $600 camera, no? If you're looking to shoot the moon yourself, our 2015 Superzoom Roundup is a good place to start your research.
