Nikon needs to give us firmware update that removes these ridiculous exposure limits. What bulb mode is that where you can only shoot 60 second exposures and only use ISO 100? Yes p1000 has a small sensor, but no one is expecting full frame image quality anyway.

The sensor in the P1000 is a  l o n g  way off from FF.

I think its 20 times smaller sensor than FF.

Smaller than APS-C

Smaller than 4/3

Smaller than 1" type  sensor (Sony RX10/100)

Smaller than the old 2/3 sensor..and yes even smaller than the small 1.1/7" sensor.

I bought the camera for birds, but I want to do some astrophotography too, but nope says Nikon.

Not sure they thought folks buying a superzoom would use it for long exposures.

I think they had other shooters in mind when making the worlds longest reaching superzoom.

They only recently added RAW.

I hope some day someone makes custom firmware to get rid of exposure limits.

I hope for you they do. But firmware wont help the noise.

I'm doing some long exposure astrophotography of deep sky objects with my p1000 and equatorial tracking mount soon.

Hope it works out for you.

Stay healthy
