This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Really fantastic camera and an excellent price for a UK sourced model with 30 day returns if required. It's a point & shoot with 125x optical zoom. Yes there are some trade offs but this is so much fun to play around with.

This price is for the 'very good' used option. Can also get a 'like new' for £635 which in my experience with Amazon is pretty much brand new.

I can produce better photos than this camera with better close up for about £200. For example, you can get a Canon 60D body for about £125. That leaves you £75 to get the longest lens that fits the EOS mount with or without a £6 adaptor. Setup your tripod, use a shutter release or times release after focusing as close as your lens can get - you can get a 600mm mirror lens for £50 - shoot the shot in raw format that's 3840x5760 - just edit the file zooming is as much as you like & clipping. The sensor is about 4 times bigger so it will capture that much more detail.


Have you told Nikon?

Why 'Moon' camera?

Why 'Moon' camera?


The zoom is so powerful that you can take decent photographs of the moon’s surface... it’s pretty amazing

OK, my Hasselblad MK70 is more suited for the moon but you do have to be there

Sorry my mistake. 30 day returns from Amazon. I have bought from Warehouse before and been covered by the manufacturers warranty but not sure if this is certain. Will edit op

I own a P1000 and he is right, you can crop zoom and get the same results for a fraction of the price but lets not miss the point of the engineer feat and patents that have gone into this bridge point and shooter. Theres no lens, mirrors, filters, etc to carry around or software to modify the images. It's an amazing well performing self contained camera despite some flaws and it's not always about the sensor size, the optics play a big part.

To be honest it's not something I've looked into. I have photo'ed the moon years ago with a 600mm lens but I suppose if I wanted to do it professionally I might use a telescope with an adaptor that fits any camera. At that distance the most important thing is the tripod once you have the image in the shot you want.

As for the poster who says you don't have carry a lot of stuff - Have you seen the size of this thing?
