Enter a world of close-up perfection with the new Nikon COOLPIX P1000


Experience 3000mm-equivalent super-telephoto shooting with the latest compact digital camera equipped with the highest zoom ratio of 125x

Nikon Australia Pty. Ltd. is delighted to bring a new level of clarity and quality to super-telephoto shooting with the release of the new COOLPIX 1000. A compact digital camera that combines superior photographic performance for high-quality, breath-taking images with 125x optical zoom and enhanced operability for the user’s convenience, the new COOLPIX is set to be the new benchmark in the imaging world of optical zoom.

“With this new COOLPIX camera, Nikon is putting all of its optical expertise and technological knowledge in the hands of our users. Perfect for super-telephoto photography, be it for wildlife, or astrophotography, the new COOLPIX 1000 gives our users streamlined operability and high resolution quality that is guaranteed to impress.” says James Murray, Managing Director, Nikon Australia.

The COOLPIX 1000 is equipped with a 125x optical zoom lens that covers an incredible range of focal length beginning at the wide-angle 24mm1 equivalent and extending to the super-telephoto 3000mm1 equivalent (up to 250x2 zoom is possible when Dynamic Fine Zoom is enabled). Equipped with a newly improved EXPEED image-processing engine to achieve superior image quality and Dual Detect Optical VR to provide a level of vibration reduction equivalent to a 5.0-stop3 increase in shutter speed, this new camera enables sharp and clear images, even with hand-held telephoto shooting. Discover superior operability with features that include an approximately 2359k-dot OLED electronic viewfinder, a control ring that can be used to manually adjust focus and change white balance setting, and a focus mode selector that enables a user to change the focus mode while gripping the camera. This compact camera further supports recording of 4K UHD/30p and Superlapse movies, as well as a variety of optional accessories for a rich and diverse imaging expression.

COOLPIX 1000 Primary Features:

  • Ready for a close-up: While photography of nature’s creatures is a favourite with many, the need to keep a respectful distance remains. The COOLPIX 1000 gets up-close, without being too personal, with a 125x optical zoom NIKKOR lens to provide super-telephoto shooting in the coverage of wide-angle 24mm to super-telephoto 3000mm focal length. Super Extra-low Dispersion (ED) and ED lens elements, which offer superior compensation for chromatic aberration, are also adopted for the lens for sharp and high-resolution images throughout the entire zoom range.

  • Finding clarity:¬†View subjects in a sharp and clear view with the high-resolution, approximately 2359k-dot OLED electronic viewfinder. Scenes are clearly projected with a viewfinder magnification of approximately 0.68x (equivalent in 35mm [135] format). This high-performance viewfinder makes framing and viewing images comfortable and easy, even in the bright outdoors. Adding on to the sharpness is the Dual Detect Optical VR, which offers vibration reduction equivalent to a 5.0-stop increase in shutter speed, allowing for worry-free super-telephoto photography. The camera processes two types of camera-shake information detected from the angular velocity sensor and the image itself for precise camera-shake compensation. The effects of camera shake are effectively suppressed even with hand-held shooting. The COOLPIX 1000 also supports recording of high-definition 4K UHD/30p movies. Frames from movies recorded in 4K UHD format can also be saved as still images to preserve moments that simply can’t be captured with a continuous burst of still-image shooting.

  • Operability for all: Taking the camera out with peace of mind and full shooting enjoyment is made possible with the adoption of a deep grip ensuring a firm and steady hold, even with hand-held shooting. The camera further pursues superior operability with features that include a focus mode selector that can be used to change the focus mode after focus has been acquired, and a control ring that allows the adjustments of settings such as white balance and manual focus. This COOLPIX also comes equipped with an accessory terminal and an accessory shoe that supports a wide variety of accessories, including external Speedlights. Support for Nikon’s extensive line-up of accessories further expands possibilities for imaging expression. Among the many optional accessories available for the COOLPIX 1000 is a new Bluetooth remote control (ML-L7) that can be used to eliminate the camera shake that is often a concern with telephoto shooting. This accessory supports smooth and precise super-telephoto photography.

Additional features:

  • Equipped with a 3.2-in. TFT LCD vari-angle monitor
  • Support for Nikon’s exclusive NRW (RAW) format
  • Equipped with COOLPIX Picture Control
  • Equipped with a creative mode that makes achieving ideal imaging expression simple
