Nikon COOLPIX P1000: Superzoom camera arrives with a lens equivalent to 24-3000mm

Nikon is one of a handful of manufacturers still catering for those after an all-in-one camera with a mammoth zoom range, and its latest COOLPIX P1000 is its most ambitious yet.

The COOLPIX P1000 has been crafted with a lens that offers a staggering 125x optical zoom, its focal range equivalent to 24-3000mm in 35mm terms. Using a Dynamic Fine Zoom option, however, it's possible to boost this to a focal length equivalent to 6000mm.
