  • We should see an announcement in the few next weeks since Nikon has licensed the 'N16D3' in Malaysia... I turned back my loved P900 since I had the opportunity to do so. If the successor is crap, I ...
  • For shorter distance, subjects I am taking the most are architecturals and vehicles, were my D800 excels, capturing so much details. The P900 is perfect for things that are out of reach and/or ...
  • I really enjoy the P900 2000mm. I realized that I took most of the photos at 1600 to 2000mm range. Since I had to opportunity to turn it back, I decided to do so. If Nikon release a replacement ...
  • Nice! Another one for you, from the P900, cropped and changed to B/W:
  • It depends on weather condition... any big zoom can be impacted during hot day. I really love the P900 2000mm zoom! Here is a pic, straight from the P900, at maximum zoom, and I can see a lot of ...
  • Just found this article: https://www.dailycameranews.com/2017/03/nikon-coolpix-p900-successor-2/ If true, I should have waited a couple of more Months...
  • Bigger sensor yes but not sure the current splendid lens will fit. Maybe the x100 patent that Nikon has for about 2 years now is meant for that one??? Another think that will be nice is an eyecup ...
  • Found out this old post: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4005452 Looks nice ! Seems to point to that piece: https://www.edmundoptics.co.uk/microscopy/eyepieces/rubber-eyeguards/60100/ Hope ...
  • Congrats for your P900! We have bought one about same time. Don't give up, the P900 is an excellent camera. I was not convinced first couple of days but with advices from great people (e.g. earthbo ...
  • Incredible picture! Splendid details. Thx for sharing. Phil
  • You were absolutely right! First sunny day in my area and tried few shots, handheld, straight from the P900. Certainly not the best pic but I was impressed when I looked at it at 100% seeing the ...
  • EXACTLY!!!    :-) I really enjoy my D800 but I already love the P900. For sure it needs good light but then, it feels like an amazingly versatile camera! Thanks again Phil
  • Replied in Means...
    I so much appreciate your comments! Always pleased to have such positive input and open discussion! You are just GREAT! I wish my english to be better... your explanations just show how ignorant I ...
  • Replied in Hmmm
    Means?   :-) Should I totally remove the Sharpening treatment (set it to 0) to take rid of this 'paint' effect or is it something else? Appreciate your advices. Phil
  • BTW, your pic is very neat and reveals a lot of details! Unfortunately since I got my P900 few days ago, it has been raining almost every day with no sun but I got a chance to take few pics. As you ...
  • Excellent input indeed! I really like your detailed answer. You are really making good points there and interesting point of view. Thanks for the post!
  • Thanks foir the valuable input and taking the time for that test! I agree with you that CPU are not the same generation and reducing compression will probably take more time to process and record ...
  • Just to be clear, my intent is not to put the P900 down! As I said I do love it! But as described in some reviews, I believe the quality of P900' photos can easily be improvedd by changing the JPEG ...
  • Many thanks guys for your valuable input and splendid photos! I agree with you that the P900 is great. Before buying it, I had a look to the B700 but reviews were not as good. I have been waiting ...
  • Amazing! Thx for sharing! I just got my P900 today and already love it but wish to have a 'superfine' mode. Nikon JPEG setup is far too destructive... they should reduce it via firmware upgrade. Phil
