looks like bigger then mine sony
Little piece of advice, steer well clear of eGlobal Central. Can't believe they are still allowed on here!

I did notice the complaints.

Probably better of paying £10 more for anyone interested gadgetonlinestore
£349 there, free shipping, decent reviews. Extremely tempted as I wanted a telescope with a bracket for a decent camera... This will do everything tho and a decent price! How heavy is it? Would I need a tripod?

You would need one when you're zoomed right in that's for sure.

32.3 oz (916 g) includes batteries
said it before say it again - eglobal are rip off merchants who don't give a damn selling grey imports
this is a hell of a camera for distances
massive though but would love to try one
That link I posted before... There's a thread on hukd slating the company... So avoid it! I will definitely be keeping an eye out for this camera tho. If anyone can find a decent camera at a decent price for astronomy then please post up, been looking for something decent for years now, just so many options and I have no idea what's needed. Thanks :-)
Has anybody tried to compare these superzoom cameras with a setup, let's say, a 400mm lens on a M43 camera, effective 800mm, cropped down to 1200mm equivalent, or in this case 2000mm oO
Are the results comparable or these superzooms its the only way to get that reach without breaking the bank?

yeah those are the sort of things i want to know but can never find
clearly dslr with 200mm equiv lens is going to beat the p900 @ 200mm equivalent but there is only so much cropping you can do vs a 2000mm equivalent shot

this link has a decent look at the camera:
photographylife.com/rev…900

with the amusing line:
"We Win! We Win! We Win! The D810 absolutely clobbered the P900. I’m so delighted and relieved that I spent the extra $21,000"
(which was actually debatable they were quite similar)
Any ideas on a tripod for the camera? Also, any other accessories that would be beneficial for night time pics. Thanks

​Has to do with the pixel density I suppose...if the P900 sensor got 16mp (effective and not dodgy advertising mp) then you need a 1000mm lens on a 16mp M43 camera to have a clear advantage on similar resolution(assuming light is sufficient)...
ok, practically, the bigger sensor and better optics of a prime give you an extra advantage but with a 400mm/M43 setup, I don't think you will be able read the tail number on a flying plane as seen on ytube videos, probably you ll need something like 600mm.
The other thing I was thinking is that P900 sensor is more than 5x smaller than a ff sensor so more than 5x pixel density on the same mp, and the IS has to be 5x more precise.
So, apart from the glass of the optics, this camera is more technically advanced than a £3k 16mp full frame camera. Another industrial conspiracy...

There are some very nice photos in that review. Just need to remind myself that it's mostly due to photographer before I get another such toy.
My understanding is that all sellers in this thread are grey imports, the lowest UK price is still over £400.
is this any good for air shows?fast focusing or just hunting like other super zooms?

Overall it is great for filming anf focusing... but if you make a picture it can go blurry. It is not great for football pro pictures. Focus is very good, but still you will get troubles with very fast moving objects.

you cant just generalise like that - you are saying that all micro 4/3rds with half the effective focal length of this equal it?
no way... need to check each lens and focal length

imo they need to get a dslr (or any target) with a given lens at max zoom and take a photo of a distant subject
then compare a crop of that vs the focal length of the p900 which matches it
then you can say you get better quality after xxmm on p900
no point comparing vs £10k lenses like that 800mm nikon prime either
seems great quality but the review mentions shutter lag of 0.75s (!!!!!!!!) when zoomed in
Edited by: "brilly" 31st Mar 2016
I agree my example is very generic, but I just want to point out that the limitation is the pixel density of the bigger sensor that doesn't allow you to crop beyond a certain point as you also mention.

With a 400mm lens, cropping the image down to 2000mm equiv., on a 36mp ff body, you end up with about 1.5mp resolution(I hope my calculations are right oO ).

On a 24mp APSC, you get about 2.2mp and on a 16mp micro 4/3 you get about 2.6mp.
While on the p900@2000mm equiv. you get full resolution due to the 5.6x crop sensor, apparently the p900 lens is a "normal" 350mm/f6.5 on the long end.

By the images in the link you mention above,its quite amazing how they control the distortion on a 4-350mm/2.8-6.5 (!) lens and the noise in such small high pixel density sensor.

​??? I've never had an issue. I've got a Tab S 8.4, Tab Pro 8.4, D5500, 55-200mm lens, 16-300mm lens x 2 (one for friend). All have arrived within 7-14 days generally closer to 7. No import fees at all. All brand new gear. Saved me loads. Nearly 2k spent no issue.
