A video taken on Nikon’s Coolpix P900 that zooms-in to apparently capture the movement of the Moon has gone viral on YouTube. German nature-lover Lothar Lenz used the camera’s 83x optical zoom lens to capture the stunning sight. The P900 costs $600, and has the same field of view as a 2,000mm lens on a full-frame camera. The lens' magnification is so powerful, the rotation of the Earth is easily seen as the subject drifts through the frame.

The zoom power of the COOLPIX P900 is nothing short of spectacular. This is 83x (2000mm equivalent) optical zoom—more than any Nikon COOLPIX yet. Advanced shooters will appreciate the outstanding image quality and DSLR styling—a sure grip, a swiveling Vari-angle display, a high-resolution Electronic Viewfinder that turns on automatically when lifted to your eye, even a PSAM mode control dial. It has long battery life—up to 360 shots per charge. It has built-in Wi-Fi® and Near Field Communication technology (NFC). Connectivity which wirelessly connects the COOLPIX P900 to a compatible smartphone or tablet for instant photo sharing and remote camera control.
