83x zoom range ended at 2000mm (24-2000mm). Look at the video to have an idea what it can do.

Nikon P900 specification

Let’s start with the negatives:

The Nikon P900 is a compact camera with a small sensor. Yes not what I prefer. I would prefer a bigger sensor, but probably that would be a totally different story in terms of price.

The Build quality is not like a Dslr, I guess it won’t lasts as long, if you heavily use it, which I assume. The af is not as fast or good, and won’t think about very good low light capability either. In long distances atmospheric haze destroy can the photo quality.

But.. even with this small sensor, this reach is just incredible, the guy who made the video zoom on the hill 30 or I don’t know how many km away and just missed the bird to zoom on a cliff, hahaha… the bird would be much more interesting at least for me (eagle or vulture).
Bird photography or video from 30km..

The camera has a double stabilizer (sensor-shift and optical in lens) for video recording and in-lens optical stabilizer for stills shooting. The camera has a nice vari-angle LCD and focus lock function as well. There is a 1/4″ tripod socket as well, which is essential for this huge focal length.
