The location of the tripod mounting point on the P950 is an under-reported benefit of that camera.

Below are photos indicating the position of tripod mounting points on the 900, 950, and 1000. Only the 950 moves the point forward. But even doing that it is doubtful that would have helped the 1000 all that much, especially with the lens extended.

But at least they gave more thought to the 950.

P900 tripod mount location back and to the left side

P900 tripod mount location center and forward

P1000 tripod mount location center and back

Interesting visual depiction ... but I think your assessment is correct, regardless of tripod mount location that lens is going to cause an issue when extended,  Thanks for the pics, most interesting ...
