Testing the Nikon Coolpix P1000

I just got the Nikon Coolpix P1000, to complement my Sony RX10 IV, in filming wild birds in 4K.

I expect the P1000, with its 3000 mm reach, to be my tool of choice for distant static birds. The RX10 IV, with its superior AF and better VQ (given its much larger sensor), will continue to be my 4K workhorse when 600 mm is enough reach, or in lower light situations.

This gallery contains frames grabbed from P1000 clips, as well as test stills.
