A Good Portrait Camera

I took this portrait with my Nikon P1000 camera this morning. It is a little fuzzy, but not bad from 1.4 miles away and 1,600 vertical feet below.

    In your photo — she is doing what?
    Next time out for a hike, I’ll hide behind a tree when I gotta go.

    Nice review with multiple photos:

    Current price is <$1,000.

    Got a P900 myself, that’s good enough. For those that do Facebook, there’s a group for P900 & 1000 owners. Shows what they can do. The photos of Jupiter & Saturn are really impressive. https://www.facebook.com/groups/nikonp900photography/

    Is it able to save images in uncompressed form..?

    You will be able to snap the lack of ice in the Arctic and Antarctic at this rate Tony with that zoom!

    Pretty amazing what a compact super zoom camera can accomplish in the right hands. I too appreciate the almost magical abilities we can own in the modern era. It’s hard to believe what is possible sometimes…

      The only thing compact is the tiny sensor. P1000 is a monster – DSLR sized, it dwarfs the P900.

    Obviously you are not getting the best information from this picture.
    You have to process this image similar to what is done with the weather models.
    Firstly, you need to average all the pixels across the entire picture, then by careful analysis you will find that the average brightness is some fraction of the peak brightness of the original picture.
    Now cut-down the area of this reduced brightness blurry image to that fractional value — this is similar to how figures for the solar energy impacting the Earth are gained for the climate models — and process in a manner similar to how it is done in the climate models, and suddenly you will be able to see how the future of this scene will look. And it wont be just tomorrow but all days for the next hundred years (or more) with very high certainty.

    Wow! The Hubble strikes again!

    Looks fake to me.
    If it were real there would be shadows and a waving flag.
    it’s clearly staged by climate deniers in area 51

    Funny stuff right there boy. I like it.
