This is a pretty impressive video demonstration of the incredible 83X optical zoom lens on Nikon’s COOLPIX P900 digital camera, which can be had for just over $500 these days. Its zoom is so good, it can fly you to the Moon, just like a real astronaut… who is on Earth, holding a camera.

In the video demos here, you can see the camera zooming in on the surface of one and only Moon. It is pretty impressive, especially when you consider the camera’s price tag. Especially when you think about how shaky a zoom image must get at that distance.

For comparison, there’s another video taken during the day too:

So if you want to check out the moon up close, this is the camera for you. Or you could just buy a telescope. Don’t look at the Sun though. That’s a bad idea. Never stare at the sun.
