Thank you for your response. I was wondering how those 2 cameras directly compare, to each other, on those 3 points...are they identical, or does the p1000 have any of those 3 points upgraded? Case in point, I had the p900 and loved it, took it with me everywhere. I then bought the p1000 and tbh I find the p1000 cumbersome to carry around and was thinking about "going back" to the p900. I'm not sure any of my 3 points are improved in the p1000 so thought I'd check with you guys first in case I missed something. So do you notice any of my 3 points different on those 2 cameras, or are they the same? BTW, I really enjoy your photos, well done.

Thanks again,


The P900 camera was released in 2015.

The P1000 camera was released in 2018.


Yes, the P1000 have some "upgrades" over the P900,

they both uses the same 16mp image sensor,

but the P1000 have an upgraded processor,

and also the P1000 have an upgraded lens.


It's good you have owned & used both the P900 & P1000,

and I can understand the reasons why you may prefer the P900.

The P1000 is definitely not for everyone, because it is bigger & heavier.

My suggestion is, if you want the best of both worlds of the P900 & P1000,

then to seriously consider the (new) P950 camera, as it is the best of both worlds.
