Taking super-telephoto shooting for wildlife photography to a new level, Nikon India on Tuesday announced a new “COOLPIX P1000” camera equipped with a massive 125x optical zoom lens to the country.

The camera, for which price is yet to be announced, supports recording of high-definition 4K UHD/30p movies.

Frames from movies recorded in 4K UHD format can also be saved as still images to preserve moments that can’t be captured with a continuous burst of still-image shooting, the company said in a statement.

“An ideal companion for super-telephoto photography, be it birding, wildlife or celestial bodies, the new COOLPIX P1000 endows our users with streamlined operability and high-resolution quality that is built to impress,” said Sajjan Kumar, Managing Director, Nikon India.

The 125× optical zoom NIKKOR lens covers a range of focal length beginning at the wide-angle 24mm equivalent and extending to the super-telephoto 3000mm equivalent (up to 250×2 zoom is possible when Dynamic Fine Zoom is enabled).

The camera is equipped with an improved “EXPEED” image-processing engine to and “Dual Detect Optical VR” to provide a level of vibration reduction equivalent to a 5.0-stop increase in shutter speed.

For Tokyo-headquartered Nikon, there is immense potential in the full-frame mirrorless camera segment and the newly-launched “Z-series” line-up will be among its key growth drivers in India.

“Owing to the state-of-the-art features that our “Z” series offers, we are confident that we will achieve 30 per cent of our sales from mirrorless camera segment Year-on-Year (YoY) in the Indian market in the next two years,” Sajjan Kumar, Managing Director, Nikon India, told IANS in an interview.

For the $11 billion camera industry, mirrorless cameras have been a growth engine as compact camera shipments have fallen.

Globally, demand for DSLR cameras is expected to be outpaced by mirrorless cameras soon as the latter are equipped with advanced functionalities. Currently, Nikon and Sony are the leading players in the mirrorless camera segment.

Betting big on a market that is currently dominated by digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) cameras, Nikon believes that both categories — DSLR and full-frame mirrorless– are here to co-exist.

“We are confident that the DSLR and mirrorless category will co-exist. While we work towards expanding our mirrorless segment, we will retain our focus on DSLR as well,” Kumar noted.

The Japanese imaging giant launched its first line of mirrorless cameras in 2011.

“This is just the beginning. We are coming from a strength of acceptability as a brand, and as a product for consumers. The initial response from the consumers in India is amazing and also from the professional photographers’ point of view,” added Kumar.

However, he did not elaborate whether the company is contemplating to refresh the full-frame mirrorless segment in India anytime soon.

Nikon this week introduced its first full-frame mirrorless cameras — the mid-range Nikon Z6 and the high-range Nikon Z7 — in India.

The company also launched three “NIKKOR Z” lenses under its own brand NIKKOR, featuring a new mount that will enable a new dimension in optical performance.
