It can do it all that just was asked. Know more about it by learning its specs and Pros & Cons.


Just like P900, Coolpix P1000 has a 16 megapixel, 1/2.3-inch sensor with an ISO range of 100-6400. Further, it comes with a non-touch flippable LCD screen and a 2.36 M-dot OLED viewfinder.

With Nikon P1000, you can shoot in 4K at up to 30 frames per second. It is also packed with manual exposure control and an external microphone input. This compact digital camera lets you control it over WiFi and Bluetooth via either the smartphone app, the ML-L7 Bluetooth remote or the MC-DC2 wired shutter release.
