Check Out the Insane 83x Zoom of the Nikon P900 As It Captures Surfers from Diamond Head, Hawaii (VIDEO)

We’ve touted the insane 83x (24mm to 2000mm in 35mm equivalent) zoom of the Nikon Coolpix P900 in both our review of this superzoom camera and in a previous video that caputed the moon’s rotation from a field here on Earth. Now here’s further proof that the P900 is a super-duper zoomer.

The below video shot in Hawaii of surfers riding the waves doesn’t seem very impressive at first. But watch as the Nikon P900 camera pulls back and you realize it’s being shot all the way from a remote vantage point on the Diamond Head volcanic cone.

The video was captured by Chris Brain on a hot day last month. And, in case you were wondering, no tripod was used in the process!
