P1000 Low light ability
1

I just got this camera and very first thing I noticed was, it can see in the dark? I did not expect the image below to be legible at all. I understand the combination of 1600 iso 1sec shutter and good image stabilize can contribute but I feel this lens is largely contributing to the light gathering capability. Is this the case?

I can only imagine if this camera had a 1 inch. The conditions were 36F. 7:14pm EST grass was pitch black to naked eye.

Full auto out of the box default ISO 1600 SHUTTER 1 SEC. NO FLASH, NO FLOOD, Very little ambient light. Handheld I.S. on.

Nikon Coolpix P1000
