Great photos and videos from day one
Automatic features for point and shoot simplicity
Point and shoot simplicity
The COOLPIX P1000 has a host of automatic functions to help you capture great photos from day one. Scene modes optimize settings for a selected scene type such as portrait, sunset, landscape, night and more, while auto ISO, exposure and white balance ensure great, hassle-free results so you can focus on getting the shot.
Moon and bird modes
Take the guess work out of shooting tricky far off subjects. Moon mode automatically compensates for low light astrophotography while the advanced bird-watching mode optimizes the camera’s settings for capturing elusive creatures.
Stylize your shots with easy-to-use filters organized in five groups: Light, for brightening colour, Depth for calming atmosphere, Memory, for creating old-fashioned looks, Classical, for traditional photo effects and Noir, a collection of monochrome tones.
Find the right look for any scene with Nikon’s Picture Controls. Shoot in Standard, Neutral, Vivid or Monochrome and find a style that’s all your own.
Great accessories tailored specifically for the COOLPIX P1000
Keeping distant moving subjects in frame is tricky. The DF-M1 Dot Sight attaches to the COOLPIX P1000’s hot-shoe and assists in acquiring distant subjects by acting as a zoomed-out targeting device. Just line up the subject in the Dot Sight at a normal field of view to easily track it at extreme magnifications.
The new ML-L7 Remote Control allows various camera functions, such as zoom, aperture, ISO and the COOLPIX P1000s shutter to be triggered remotely without disrupting the camera and your composition during super telephoto shooting.
VR image stabilizationA Nikon technology that improves image stability by automatically compensating for camera shake.
ISO 6400Maximum high ISO available on the camera is 6400 ISO.
CMOSComplementary metal-oxide semiconductor, one of the two main types of image sensors used in digital cameras. The Nikon COOLPIX CMOS image sensor with a backside illumination structure increases the amount of light that each pixel receives. The resulting improvement in noise and sensitivity reduction makes the select COOLPIX cameras more capable when shooting night scenes or in dark indoor situations.
Clear Colour DisplayThis innovative technology improves screen visibility for a more vivid, clear image when taking and sharing pictures. Reflections are minimized while contrast and power savings are improved. (In select COOLPIX models).
Scene Auto SelectorNikon COOLPIX cameras are so smart they know what kind of picture you're taking and can automatically select from six commonly used scene modes, eliminating the mode-setting procedure and streamlining the shooting process.
Target Finding AFSelect COOLPIX digital cameras utilize the Target Finding AF feature which instantaneously assesses the intended subject and automatically adjusts the AF area according to its size to assure clearly focused images.
Subject TrackingCOOLPIX cameras and select D-SLRs in Live View mode, maintain focus on a moving subject using a contrast detection system, which is based on the principle that objects in a scene that are in focus display the highest contrast.
Wi-FiRefers to wireless technology and wireless communication. In photography, it's most commonly the wireless transmission of images directly from a camera to a computer in order to achieve a swifter workflow.
Dynamic Fine ZoomDynamic Fine Zoom is a new feature available on select Nikon COOLPIX digital cameras that extends the zoom range electronically 2x with minimal image degradation.
