Nikon Coolpix P950
Enter the world of super telephoto.
The COOLPIX P950’s 83x optical zoom covers focal lengths between 24mm wide-angle1 and 2000mm super-telephoto1 and all. This powerful zoom feature lets you capture objects far beyond the reach of normal cameras, from birds and other wildlife to distant landscapes, airplanes and even planets. Dynamic Fine Zoom2, an advanced digital zoom that effectively doubles your reach to 4000mm1, provides even more zooming possibilities. At the other end of the spectrum, the macro picture is about 1cm/0.4in3. From extreme close-ups to extreme zooms, the Nikon Coolpix P950 delivers crisp, clear and beautiful images in a compact and portable body.
Super telephoto Excellent portability
The COOLPIX P950 packs the incredible performance of a 2000mm zoom lens in a compact 2lb 3.5oz body. The amazing combination of portability and super-telephoto performance gives photographers the freedom to unleash their creativity in new and exciting places.
Dual Detection Optical VR for stable super telephoto stabilization
Image blur can be a big problem, especially with distant subjects and super telephoto shots. Thanks to Dual Detection Optical VR (Vibration Reduction), the COOLPIX P950 effectively reduces image blur caused by camera shake for clear images of distant objects even when shooting handheld. In NORMAL mode, images are stabilized as when shooting with a shutter speed of 5.5 steps, the fastest in Nikon compact digital camera history2.
Excellent optical performance for high image quality
The COOLPIX P950’s advanced optics feature the Super ED glass elements used in Nikon’s announced DSLR lenses, providing superior imaging capabilities and effectively reducing chromatic aberration to dynamically achieve superior image quality with super-telephoto shooting. The back-illuminated CMOS image sensor with 16.0 effective megapixels and sensitivity up to ISO 6400 allows you to capture sharp and clear images even in dark shooting conditions.
Higher AF speed and larger buffer capacity for lag-free shooting.
With the Nikon P950 there is no need to wait for image data to be written to the memory card before taking the next shot. Thanks to the larger buffer capacity, it is possible to shoot two bursts of shots in a row in continuous H mode (up to 10 frames at approx. 7fps*). Combined with faster AF performance on the tele side, it’s easier than ever to capture decisive moments and unique photo opportunities when capturing hard-to-reach wildlife or fast action.
4K UHD cinematic movie
The COOLPIX P950 can record high quality 4K UHD/30p video with a zoom range of 24mm to 2000mm. Manual movie mode gives you full control over exposure and aperture settings to get images that look exactly the way you want them to. AE can also be locked if the ambient brightness changes significantly during movie recording. You can also select the zoom speed during movie shooting by selecting one of three options with the side zoom control.
Time-lapse movies made easy.
You can automatically create dynamic time-lapse movies, such as landscapes, from a series of still images captured with Interval Shooting. Choose from five scene mode options and the optimal spacing will be set automatically.
Flexible long exposure options
The COOLPIX P950’s shutter speed options add bulb and time settings to further customize the look of long exposure images; useful when shooting fireworks, night scenes, stars and light trails of cars.
