Get a P1000, if you really like the power of zoom...

I have a mnemonic for the P1000: "peek 1000 miles" (I mentioned on this forum that there is a figure in Chinese mythology called "千里眼" - one who has the eyes to see 1000 miles far).

Can you see it:

24mm. Can you see it? Look in center near edge of water.


That's the end of Optical Zoom for the P950.

Here's 2x digital zoom:


Now at 8000mm( 4x Digital zoom) :

8000mm. Max optical zoom, plus digital zoom. Processed in FastStone Image Viewer before uploading here.

If any more zoom is needed (crazy) then one would have to crop.

One can also crop from 2000mm and get similar results , me thinks.

Nikon seems to deliver better than expected results when using digital zoom.

Hope someone found this interesting

Stay healthy
