  • congrats, really cool pix :-) Sunbirds are so beautiful jewels! Tommy
  • congrats to your Astro shots, didnt expect that with P1000. How nice to capture the ISS handheld with so much detail. Will try that too. Maybe, we can adapt somehow a motofocus with temperature ...
  • its mere a tool, and its you who takes the photo. Without you, its nothing. "Use the tool, but take care that it does not use you." Thats a popular Zen saying I always have in mind. That said and ...
  • my P900 is quite ok, I used it for years. Just comparing to P1000, there is a difference. Here is another set. By the reflection dot in the dove's eye its evident that there is no shake involved. ...
  • thanks Augustin! Their test is made indoors at 12mm focal length - thats a difference Tommy
  • yes, and guess what, all other P900 pics I did, too.  ;-) This was the sharpest. Same on other targets I tried. Systematic property.
  • beautiful colors! Depth of field is most striking with macros. Shoot a flying bee hovering over a flower at 3cm distance with your fullframe - it's impossible, you had to shoot slices and fabric ...
  • well, it was my intention to test the normal way I use it - handheld. On a target that has details fine enough and does not differ from frame to frame. A bird differs. That way of course the stabi ...
  • dear Augustin, it would be interesting indeed to see your side by side comparison. Then we had two independent samples. Just print out a test chart fine enough and hang it up some 30m away. It's ...
  • Yes, I got one of the first P900 on the market and am happy with it ever since. My beloved daytime photo camera for outdoor/birds. One year ago, Nikon serviced it and replaced the EVF for free. ...
  • No, handheld! Yes I did several shoots and selected (was hard), focus errors improbable!
  • my conclusion is: P1000 is able to resolve finer detail at 2000mm, and there is a small gain at 3000mm (did not expect that because of diffraction). P1000  standard pic style seems tuned a little ...
  • Created discussion thread P1000 vs. P900 resolution
    fot thse interested on the long end capabilities - did testshoots of a standard testchart applied to a wall at 30m distance to check out differences. These are center crops at pic style standard, ...
  • I am happy Jeff Keller at last found one situation where he could use the full zoom reasonably. For me, who uses the P900, and 95% of my shoots are at the very long end, the P1000 will be a ...
  • I did a comparison P900 handheld with a Eos77d mounted on tripod with a superb Canon 100-400l-II IS plus 1.4x Kenko TC (this results at 560mm focal length, and the 3.7µ pixelpitch of the 77d gives ...
  • yes, full throttle and full brake at the same time - this vehicle goes crazy. Probably she used a PSAM mode without knowing the basics. Tommy
  • "125x optical zoom, anyone?" YES :-))) these reviewing chaps can't grasp there are folks out there who regularly use the extreme end. Like me. 95% shots at the long end with P900, 2 or 3 ...
  • hi, a nice test! But you should choose a target withreally fine detail to check if the P1000 can bring out finer details than the Sigma. For an example check my P900 comparison: https://farm2.stati ...
  • interestingly, up to 2000mm P900 has the same f/stop ratios as P1000. Viewed that way, P1000 is of interest only for people needing more than 2000mm. All the extra weight is only for that realm, ...
  • man, the sun is at a sunspot minimum and there is no detail at all visible. Not even faculae. What a boring comparison, sorry to say that! Tommy
