  • The best and only 83X Zoom Camera ever!

    from Vancouver, BC on June 26, 2018

    Bought this from Best Buy a few months ago and I love the 83X zoom. The moon photos are simply unbelievable as you can see the craters on the face of the moon. For an equivalent zoom on a DSLR it would be ten feet long. This is simply the best telephoto camera that you can buy as there are no other camera that has 83X zoom on the market. On top of the 83X zoom, you can even digitally zoom in further. This is one camera that needs a monopod or tripod for those long distance photos. If you are looking for a great DLSR like camera without having to change lenses, this camera is it.

  • Nikon P900... just WOW!!

    from Northern Shores of Lake Huron, ON on September 2, 2017

    Just got this camera a few weeks ago and I am so impressed with it. I'm still learning all it can do but it makes photography so much easier (and more enjoyable) for me now. I don't have to be constantly changing lenses (which I can't do anyway) and I can get so much closer to my subjects (birds and wildlife). I would highly recommend this camera to anyone but in particular to those who like to capture birds or wildlife.

  • Amazing Camera

    from Halifax, NS on August 2, 2017

    I just bought this camera a couple of weeks ago, so I'm still discovering what it's capable of. So far I can't say enough good things about it. For a DSLR it takes amazing pictures, and the zoom is fantastic! I would highly recommend this camera!!
