Nikon Coolpix P900 is a pretty powerful little camera in terms of optical zoom. You can use it to zoom in the Moon, or “prove” that the Earth is flat. However, it has now officially been listed as discontinued and soon you won’t be able to order it anymore.

This probably doesn’t come as a surprise considering that Nikon introduced the Coolpix P950 earlier this year. It’s basically a 4K version of the P900 and it comes as a replacement. When you visit B&H, the P900 is already listed as discontinued and the P950 is offered as a replacement:

What’s more, the P900 has also been listed as discontinued on Nikon Japan’s official website:

However, if you’d like to get the P900, there are still a few left on Amazon.

Perhaps you wonder why I mentioned “flat Earthers” in the title. Well, the Nikon Coolpix P900 is one of their favorite cameras to “prove” that the Earth is flat. They use the 83x zoom of the P900, but also the more powerful 125x zoom of the P1000 to support their “theory.” According to one of the attendees of the International Flat Earth Conference, Nikon should market these cameras as “flat Earth cameras.” But now that one of them is discontinued… Well, I guess they’ll have to switch to the P950.

    I give up. How does it prove that the earth is flat?

      One thing I saw was that they think the zoom allows them to see clouds behind the moon. One of my employees came up to me after work the other day and I pointed out how bright Venus was. He started going on about how he and his flat earth buddies were getting a really close-up view of the “planets” (his air-quotes, not mine) through a P900. I quickly made my exit as I’ve tried talking with him about this before. He’s gone as far as to say, if I were to somehow get him aboard a spacecraft and let him see the Earth from orbit, he would still believe it was flat

      Give up? Made this comment in July or Aug of 2020, and you say you have given up? Hmmmmm..sounds more like you are just trolling. If you want, my 12 yr old just said he would help you? Let me know.

    Used some of my stimulus and bought the P950 from Best Buy (need to claim the free shutterfly book yet, have one all set up that I’ll buy in a few weeks). I’ve taken some nice photos with it, even the local tourism board shared some of them! It’s a major upgrade from my old P510 (still have it, keeping for backup). I considered the P1000 but the price made me reconsider, then I noticed the 950 had the same features save for a bit of zoom. Can’t wait to attend a concert from the upper levels and catch some crazy zoom shots!

    So you’re saying Nikon is to blame for all of this flat earth nonsense?

      Lol, so funny. No, nasa and the scientistsm ( a new religion you’re a part of) are to blame. All the lies from nasa re: our “ball” earth that you, and I were programmed to believe in. Fortunately, I was able to let bias go for a time, and within one yr of actually doing unbiased research ( should try it), I was able to 100%, absolutely free myself of nasa (Our ONLY source for helio) .

      I always mention this, but its relevant, and its sincerely true…

    To the author of this article; don’t you wonder WHY/HOW the so-called “flat-earthers” use the Nikon p900 to prove flat earth? It’s because according to the globe model, earth’s curvature is 8 inches per mile squared (NOT square mile) and when you can see something that, according to the globe model, should be hidden from view behind the supposed curvature of the earth, well that makes at the very least, pretty compelling evidence against the earth being a globe. If you’re taking a photo at sea level and your target is one mile away, 8 inches of said target is supposedly hid from view behind earth’s “curvature”. If the target is two miles away, that’s 16 inches. Three miles away, there’s 32 inches of your target obscured by the curvature. Not to beat a dead horse here but at four miles there’s 64, five miles there’s 128 and if if your target is six miles away from you, it’s supposedly should be a whopping 256 inches below you thanks to the curvature. Yet the P900 can see objects 50+ miles away. So, what’s your explanation for this phenomena?

      How tall are the objects you think you’re seeing that are 50 miles away?
