Nikon P900 - Thoughts?

Recommended Posts

I've had this camera a while now a good tip is to try and get the shot how you want it as it doesn't like cropping very much. I got this just for its zoom capability but have had good results all round with it.

bad points are No raw only jpeg, no manual focus except digital and that's so slow its unusable for anything other than very still subjects with a tripod,

No lens hood this will get flare if shooting towards a bright light source it has a built in filter in front of the front element that worsens the effect as it reflects onto it, viewfinder and shutter speed dial lag that takes getting used to.

There's a couple more niggly things but i wont go into those as this is really a decent bit of kit and might be me being fussy and used to a dslr.

The preset modes are fool proof the bird mode works a treat and time lapse works well, art effects work well and panorama works great handheld and the zoom is out of this world even handheld and this was my main reason for buying this camera.

There are some examples from the camera here, hope this was helpful.

WoW Great photo's

 

Robin stands out really well, and the depth of field on the poppys is perfect. How come all my photo's (D5300) so far look very flat?

Thanks, are you shooting on A (auto) mode?

What exactly do you mean 'flat'? if you mean colour wise you can turn the in camera saturation and vibrancy up a little.

I tend to shoot in A aperture priority. It was the settings of the camera, something I think I've fixed, or at least a friend off here fixed for me - Thank you Allen. What do you think -
