Take creative control

Perfect for those who value ease and efficiency, the P1000 supports RAW formatted files to enable flexible editing of images, allowing you to optimise your workflow and take control of your own creative process. RAW formatted data is also recorded in the same file for each image and supports image creation that uses white balance, exposure, and COOLPIX Picture Control, while maintaining high image quality after shooting.

Durability meets versatility

To ensure you get the most out of the super-telephoto shooting performance, the P1000 has a dedicated range of accessories, including a newly developed DF-M1 dot sight that helps you quickly focus on your subject so you don’t miss a moment. A Bluetooth remote control gives you the ability to shoot hands-free, while SnapBridge1 simplifies photo transfers by transferring images to your smart device2 via Wi-Fi® or Bluetooth®. Its compact design and foldable structure also makes it perfect for photographers constantly on the go. Robust and reliable, this camera is designed to withstand dust and water droplets for extra peace of mind.

Note All measurements are performed in conformity with Camera and Imaging Products Association (CIPA) standards or guidelines.

*1 Battery life does not reflect the use of SnapBridge and may vary with the conditions of use, including temperature, the interval between shots, and the length of time that menus and images are displayed.

*2 Individual movie files cannot exceed 29 minutes in length, even when there is sufficient free space on the memory card for longer recording. The maximum file size for individual movie files is 4 GB. When recording a movie longer than approximately six minutes at an image size/frame rate of 2160/30p (4K UHD) or longer than approximately seven minutes at an image size/frame rate of 2160/25p (4K UHD), multiple files are created when the file size of the recorded movie exceeds 4 GB, and the files cannot be played back continuously. Recording may end before this limit is reached if camera temperature becomes elevated.

*3 A plug adapter is attached depending on the country or region of purchase. The shape of the plug adapter varies with the country or region of purchase.

*4 The EH-73PCH Charging AC Adapter may be included instead of the EH-73P, depending on the country or region where you purchased the camera.
