People just aren’t buying cameras like they used to, obviously because of the preponderance of smartphone cameras in the marketplace making it a redundant purchase for most people with a simple passing interest in photography. So rather than packing it all in and finding another racket, the camera manufacturers are doing something a lot cooler – giving their cameras insane zoom capabilities, like the one recently demonstrated in the Nikon Coolpix P900.
YouTube user Fratila Angelo recently tested the Nikon Coolpix P900’s zoom feature, and the results are pretty amazing. The shot begins on a excavator before the illustrative zoom-out, which covers miles of countryside in just a few seconds.
