Nikon COOLPIX P950 Digital Camera
Step into a super-telephoto world.
The 83x optical zoom of the COOLPIX P950 covers an incredible focal-length range, from wide-angle 24mm to super-telephoto 2,000mm and everything in between. With a zoom this powerful, you can capture distant subjects far beyond the reach of an ordinary camera—from birds and other animals in the wild, to distant landscapes, aircraft and even planets. Dynamic Fine Zoom, an enhanced digital zoom that effectively doubles the reach to a 4,000mm, allowing for even greater zoom potential. At the other end of the spectrum, macro photography can be captured as close as approx. 1 cm/0.4 in.
Super-telephoto. Super portable.
Dual Detect Optical VR for reliable super-telephoto stabilization.
Image blur can be a major issue, especially with distant subjects and super-telephoto shooting. Thanks to its Dual Detect Optical VR (Vibration Reduction), the COOLPIX P950 effectively reduces image blur caused by camera shake for sharp images of distant subjects even when shooting handheld. In NORMAL mode, images are stabilized with an equivalent of shooting at a shutter speed 5.5 stops faster, the maximum in the history of Nikon compact digital cameras.
Superior optical performance for high image quality.
Faster AF speed and increased buffer capacity for lag-free shooting.
With the COOLPIX P950, you don’t have to wait for image data to write to the memory card before your next shot. Thanks to an increased buffer capacity, you can fire two consecutive bursts in Continuous H mode (up to 10 frames* at approx. 7 fps). Combined with faster AF performance at the telephoto end, it’s easier than ever to nail decisive moments and once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunities when shooting elusive wildlife or fast action.
Cinematic 4K UHD movies.
RAW (NRW) for stills.
Time-lapse movies made easy.
Flexible long exposure options.
Zoom with a view.
Control at your fingertips.
The Focus-mode selector makes switching between MF and AF easy. In addition to the Snap-back zoom and Side zoom controls, the Side dial is conveniently located to control shooting settings. In MF mode, the dial is used to focus manually. When set to AF, it can be assigned to control exposure compensation, white balance or ISO sensitivity. For advanced shooters, a PSAM mode dial is available right on top of the camera, much like a DSLR. Select the COOLPIX P950's aperture and shutter speed to control your shots exactly as you want them. But you don't have to understand exposure controls to get great results—the COOLPIX P950 can do all that work for you.
Capability-expanding accessory options.
