Check Out the Nikon P900’s Ridiculous 83x Zoom

28 Comments

Earlier this month, we shared a video showing the incredible reach of the Canon SX60, a superzoom compact camera with a 65x lens. If you thought that video was crazy, check out this one featuring the new Nikon P900, which packs an even longer 83x optical zoom lens — the equivalent of a 24-2000mm lens in 35mm terms.

Spanish camera website Quesabesde shot the test clip after taking the camera to Athens for a spin. They were able to stand on the terrace of their hotel and capture details of the Parthenon on the Acropolis in the distance:

Here are a couple of sample shots by Quesabesde showing the quality of the camera’s stills at 1800mm and 2000mm (35mm equiv.), respectively:

Not bad for a $600 camera, eh?
