This is the Power of the 125x Lens on the Nikon P1000


Superzoom cameras are getting crazier and crazier in their reach. If you thought the 83x zoom on the Nikon P900 was impressive, watch this video demonstrating the power of the 125x zoom on the new Nikon P1000.

The Nikon P1000 is now available for $1,000.
