Nikon Coolpix P900 point-and-shoot has a monstrous 83x zoom

If you’re a fan of superzoom cameras, you may have to look no further than Nikon’s Coolpix P900 to find the category’s new king. This compact, yet powerful point-and-shoot features a remarkable 83x optical zoom, the equivalent of 24-200mm, which is quite outstanding for a camera this size. While the whopping zoom range is the obvious highlight spec here, there’s a lot more to the Coolpix P900. Namely, a 16-megapixel CMOS sensor, an autofocus system with support for up to 7 fps continuous shooting, NFC, WiFi and a 3-inch, articulating LCD display. Sure, those seem like standard features found in most entry-level cameras nowadays, more or less — but not so much the super, super 83x zoom. Either way, Nikon’s making its Coolpix P900 available next month for $600, in case any of you are into it.
