Nikon’s Point and Shoot Camera’s Impressive Zoom Captures the Movement of the Moon!





Even if the moon is  238,900 miles away from our planet, a simple point and shoot Nikon camera allows you see it in detail.

German photographer and nature-lover Lothar Lenz was able to capture the rotation of the moon using nothing but a point and shoot camera. Nikon’s Coolpix P900 has an 83x optical zoom lens that allows the device to document the moon’s movement, which is an illusion caused by the Earth’s rotation.

Launched in March this year, the Nikon P900 camera has a powerful zoom that reaches up to 166x. Dubbed as the “Dynamic Fine Feature,” the camera’s amazing ability allowed Lenz to capture more detailed features of the Earth’s satellite. Even the moon’s craters can be seen in detail in the stunning footage that has gone viral.

Priced at $600, the camera is a perfect device for both amateur and professional photographers because of its unbelievable zoom range.
