For $596 Nikon’s Coolpix P900 Point And Shoot Camera Has Insane Zoom Feature That Shows The Moon Moving




There are nice cameras and then there are insanely nice cameras. Nikon’s Coolpix P900 is one of the insanely nice cameras, although in the world of photography it comes with a pretty affordable price tag. For $596 you can own a camera with zoom capabilities that far surpass the competition, in fact this camera can even capture the movement of the moon.

Nikon’s point and shoot camera, the Coolpix P900, recently went viral on YouTube after German-based nature-lover Lothar Lenz captured stunning video footage of the moon moving using the camera’s 83x optical zoom lens.

Since the video went viral people have been quick to point out that the camera is actually capturing the rotation of the Earth. The moon rotates around the Earth in the same direction and completes one full rotation in a little less than 28 days. From earth it looks like the moon is completely still, but when you use the zoom feature on this camera you can suddenly see something you couldn’t before.

Both Earth and the Moon are moving all of the time; Earth is clocking speeds of 1,000 miles per hour. We don’t feel how fast we are moving because the speed is so constant.

The camera has gotten a lot of attention thanks to its massive 24-2000mm lens, which literally puts this camera in a class all by itself. It’s not just the impressive zoom feature that earns this camera such great reviews. The Coolpix P900 also comes with GPS, Wi-Fi, manual exposure controls, twin dial operation and so much more.
