  • When I realized I lost the Nikon lens hood I ordered this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0029LH3US/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 My only concern was whether or not it would ...
  • Was this on the way down from the Gianicolo / Janiculum Hill by any chance? No, we were walking back from the Victor Immanuel building which now has an elevator that takes you up to the top of the ...
  • It's possible I guess. I thought I was at max zoom, but I made the shot very quickly and it could have been less. The wires were atop some pretty tall power poles, and I was across the street and ...
  • My Elements 16 says it can't read the P1000 NRW files. Am I missing something? Is there some trick to getting Raw to work in Elements? Elements says it has Raw Ver. 10.3.0.933 which I think is the ...
  • Created discussion thread P1000: Well...I lost it
    The lens hood I mean. Somewhere in Rome - which is a very busy place. The hood fell off a couple of time when people bumped into me - but I heard it fall and was able to retrieve it ok. But ...
  • Just download and install right over the version you have.
  • Several people here - including me - have had no problems with the firmware update. Delete the download file you have and try downloading it again. After that, if it still doesn't unzip properly, ...
  • Created discussion thread P1000: Rufus hummingbird
    Sitting on the fiber optic cable that comes into my house. These birds are tiny; about half the size of the Rubies or other species. 3000 mm, SOOC, cropped, hand held, spot AF, P mode. The DOF is ...
  • I've had mine for about 2 weeks now. At that price how can you go wrong? With careful arrangement I can all this in the case: camera, 4 extra batteries, battery charger, my camera strap (which is ...

  • A number of people here (including me) have complained about the annoying need to initiate  a BlueTooth connection and then switch to WiFi before Snapbridge will connect to the P1000. Our only ...
  • The instructions are clear and the actual update takes about a minute. If you are using a Brand X battery that doesn't show current charge level be sure it has plenty of charge before you start. ...
  • Created discussion thread P1000: Brand X Battery issue
    This may have been mentioned here before relative to some other camera, but here's the review I have posted on Amazon for these Brand X batteries I use in my P1000. https://www.amazon.com/gp/produc ...
  • 1. Enable video recording time to be either count-down to count-up. In other words, show either the length of the currently recorded video or the time remaining - 0.0 ==> 29.59 or 29.50 ==> 0.00. 2 ...

  • It looks to me like  the problem is either the camera or the subject is not 100% steady. The subject is moving around very slightly on the monitor screen, and this will definitely affect focus ...
  • Nope - there's no problem with the P1000 display. I tested this with the original Nikon battery and the display update correctly as the battery runs down. Specifically, although the battery level ...
  • Check to see if your battery condition is reflected in the viewfinder. My extra batteries which also came from Amazon show 100% all the time. Then, when they run out, the camera just shuts down.
  • Just keep in mind that to actually take the picture at maximum Zoom requires either a remote shutter release or a 3-second delay self-timer release.
  • Unfortunately Page 162 is no help. The default values in the camera's firmware correspond exactly with the settings described on that page, and those are the settings I used on my phone. For some ...
