Given the enormous popularity of the Nikon P900 on our site over the past few months, it's obvious that many of our readers have been marveling at the incredible zoom capability of the P900 and its 24-2000mm equivalent optical range. In several earlier posts we unveiled our initial lab test images as well as an initial gallery impressions report, and now it's time for a deeper look into the P900's overall performance.

Our reviewer Jeremy Gray has now spent several weeks in the wilds of Orrington, Maine with the P900 and has put it through its performance paces in his Nikon P900 Shooter's Report. Does the overall performance in the field stand up to the incredible zoom range and initially good image quality? Take a look as he goes under the hood of this marvel to uncover any limitations you'll want to know about, including samples and a dive into the P900's video capabilities.
