    Is nikon coolpix p900 mirrorless?
    bradly.fritsch
    7 months ago
    The P900 uses a small 1/2.3-inch 16-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor, significantly smaller than what you'd get in a mirrorless compact or dSLR or higher-end compacts. A big sensor typically translates into better image quality, so don't expect the quality of a dSLR just because the P900 looks like one.

2017 Roundup: Consumer Long Zoom Compacts

Not everyone wants to pay a premium for a long zoom camera. Thankfully, there are many reasonably priced cameras available, though they won't offer the same image quality as enthusiast models. In this updated roundup we look at big zoom cameras with more consumer-friendly price tags.

Watch a Nikon P900 Shoot Amazing Video of the Moon’s Rotation with Its 83x Superzoom Lens

We reviewed the amazing Nikon Coolpix P900 last month and were blown away by its incredible 83x (24-2000mm in 35mm equivalent) optical zoom lens. Now we’ve seen something even more astounding from this camera.

Nikon Coolpix P900 Superzoom Camera Review (Full Resolution Test Images)

I’ve often wished I had a camera that could go from 24mm to 2000mm at the touch of a button and without being weighed down by a ton of glass. Okay, maybe not all the way to 2000mm and perhaps not in a power zoom, but you get my point. The Nikon Coolpix P900 superzoom (super-duper-zoom?) camera gives you that reach in a fairly compact body, relative to a lens with such a broad range of focal lengths.

It might not be the best camera, but if you simply must have the longest zoom lens available for the least amount of money, the P900 wins.
