      I’m not sure which pictures you’re asking about. If you’re talking about the images at the Sample Photos page, yes, the two bird photos and the photo of the moon were taken at the 2000mm maximum optical focal length of the P900’s lens.

      Hello — The book should be available now from Barnes & Noble’s online site at bn.com. The only other place I’m sure it’s available now is Amazon.com. It will be available from other online sites in coming days and weeks, but not in bookstores. I don’t have any copies on hand to sell.

      You can download the Nikon User’s Guide for free, but this book is a different item. It is a guide that explains the various features and controls of the camera, along with hundreds of illustrations. You may do fine with just the official user’s guide, but some people prefer a book with more detailed explanations of how particular menu options and controls are used.

    I could use a flow chart or algorithm

    Any suggestions?

      Hello, Gary — I took a look at Amazon and on the Internet in general to see if I could find anything like what you mentioned, but I’m afraid I came up short. Some people have produced flowcharts for other cameras, I believe, but I could not find anything of that nature for the Coolpix P900. In my book, I try to break things down into manageable discussions, with step-by-step lists for certain operations, but I doubt that it provides the sort of structure you are looking for.

    I am a point and shoot person. I do not understand at all anything about f stops, benefits of switching to manual, nothing. I need something that is basically a p900 book for dummies who know nothing. Is this book going to be over my head?

      Hello — The book is intended for beginning to intermediate users. It includes a section with a step-by-step introduction to using the camera for basic picture-taking and video recording, in Chapter 2. I believe it covers topics in a way that is clear even if you don’t have much of a background in photography. You might want to take a look at the excerpt that is posted on this site for review.

    Hi when i used the P900 straight out of the box I expected the incredible superzoom capabilities that i had seen on youtube videos.But i was disappointed.I am a beginner.Does your book explain how to achieve these incredibly long distance videos.

      The book has a section on using the super-zoom lens in Chapter 9. I’m not sure exactly what videos you are talking about from YouTube, but I believe the discussion in the book would give you some pointers on getting the best results with the lens.

    Have just finished reading the Photographers Guide to the Nikon Coolpix 900. Loved this book. I felt the level was just right for intro to this type of camera. I was wondering if it’s necessary to turn VR off when using a tripod if you select 2 sec Remote control? Does it make a difference or are they just two to reduce shake effects from two different angles?

      Hello — Thanks for your comment. I will give you my thoughts, though I can’t say I have an authoritative answer. I believe it is best to turn VR off on this camera when using a tripod, because of the theoretical possibility of confusing the camera’s anti-shake technology. If you leave VR turned on when using a tripod, though, I doubt it will cause any harm in actuality. So, I think it is probably advisable to turn VR off in this situation, but not necessary.

      It appears that the Nikon Coolpix P900 has been discontinued by Nikon. At least, it is listed as “Out of Stock” at the Nikon site, and “no longer available” at the B&H Photo Video site. There may still be some new P900 cameras available if you look around, but I would not expect new shipments of new cameras to become available. Your best bet may be to buy a “renewed” camera from Amazon or elsewhere, or to purchase a newer model such as the P950 or the P1000.
