Review: Nikon Coolpix A1000 35X Optical 4K

3.7 out of 5 stars 47 ratings | 12 answered questions Product Link

Gary Farnham, Still Waters Studio in N.E. Maine is a professional photographer, my brother in law and my mentor. It's been over 40 years since I donated my slightly used Canon A1 to the cause as Gary went off to photography school. When Gary finished school he visited my wife and I in Germany where he taught me how to develop and print 35mm film. That was the catalyst that got my creative juices flowing and made photography one of my passions.

I have been a Nikon fan ever since I bought my Nikon D80 digital single-lens reflex camera in 2005. I still have it and love to use it but as technology keeps marching on so do I. When I discovered the Nikon A1000 point and shoot which is small enough to store in my pocket I had to have it and it hasn't disappointed. In fact I keep discovering new features as needs arise. The high-end design has an amazing 35x optical super telephoto NIKKOR zoom lens, versatile low-light capabilities, VR image, video stabilization and 4K Ultra HD recording. It connects to the SnapBridge 2.5 app for instant sharing and remote control via my iphone. I saw in other reviews that some folks were experiencing problems with the SnapBridge interface but It went smooth for me. For those who want an all-in-one camera that can do it all without weighing you down, the COOLPIX A1000 delivers for me. My only complaint is that it's hard not to obstruct the viewfinder sensor with my left index finger when composing the shot causing the large display to go black. I give it 4.5 stars after 1 year.
