Falling somewhere between utility and novelty, Nikon’s Coolpix P1000 offers the most extreme zoom available for the “compact camera” category. That’s 125x optical zooming or a 24-3000mm equivalence. The world of point-and-shoot cameras doesn’t generally carry innovation to this extent, and this is a device that might just make its way into the bags of professional shooters who intend to land a very specific long-range shot (without having to buy a crazy expensive lens for their existing DSLR). The little camera with a giant lens will retail for $999.
