This is one heck of a camera!
I am very impressed with it. I am very fond of it.
I love using it.
Amazingly easy (and forgiving) camera to use.
Despite not having a control wheel and only one ‘Fn’ button, you can set it up for a shoot,
ONCE you have assigned ‘White Balance‘ to the ‘Fn’ just going, click, click, click, click.
I picked up this Nikon P900, from Best Buy, on Sunday, August 28, 2016. I did not start using it until the next day. Thus, today, nominally is the ‘1 month’ anniversary (though I know that stictly speaking it is 1 month & 1 day).
The last picture I took today, September 29, in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, around 3pm, has a serial number 4,058. And over the course of the month I might have deleted 40 pictures or so. Basically not many. This camera takes ‘KEEPERS’.
4,000 in a MONTH is the most I have shot with any of my dozen or so cameras over the last 2 years.
When I shot 2,500 in the first month with my now relegated (i.e., traded-in) Fuji X-E2s, I thought that was a lot. Well I have taken 60% more pictures with the P900 — and I wasn’t trying. If I am to be frank over the last week, I have been so busy, that I didn’t have much time to use the camera.
Yes, I am fully aware (and sometimes conscious) that it is a 16MP 1/2.3″ sensor and the few prints I have had does show that — though they are not bad. But the images, as you have seen, over the last month, are just great for Web use, even when reduced to 1600×1200.
Well, I am so happy with this camera that I am going to take my time deciding on the next camera. Plus I am writing another QUICK “Brain Meditation” book.
Plus, I will not get rid of this P900. I am going to keep it. Yes, I might end up with 3 or 4 cameras BUT the P900 is staying,
