The Nikon Coolpix P950 is a superzoom bridge camera/lens combo that covers just about any focal length you’d want. Consider it the mid-point between the P900 and the P1000. Key features include:

  • 83x optical zoom, extendable to 166x and 332x

  • 16MP 1/2.3” BSI CMOS sensor

  • 5.5-stop optical vibration reduction

  • UHD 4K30 and Full HD 60p video capture

What’s Changed? The Nikon Coolpix P950 offers a few notable improvements over its predecessor. You get RAW image capture, 7 fps burst shooting at 16MP for up to 10 exposures, UHD 4K video, improved image stabilization, a higher-res 2.4m-dot viewfinder, new scene modes, and an accessory shoe. On the downside, the P950 doesn’t include NFC and GPS functionality, and you get slightly fewer shots per battery charge.

83x Optical Zoom. That’s not a typo. This bridge camera boasts a ridiculous 24-2000mm f/2.8-6.5 equivalent focal length after sensor-crop factor. If for some reason 2000mm isn’t enough, you can extend that to 166x or 332x with varying degrees of digital zoom.

16MP CMOS Sensor. This camera’s 1/2.3" CMOS sensor gives you decent performance in daylight conditions or indoors with good light. Please keep in mind that this is a traditional point-and-shoot sized sensor, so once light gets low, image quality gets murky.

Dual-Detect Optical Vibration Reduction. This image-stabilization system reduces the amount of camera shake in your images by providing up to 5.5 stops of compensation.

UHD 4K and Full HD Video. The P950 captures UHD 4K at up to 30 fps and Full HD 1920 × 1080p at up to 60 fps with the same crazy focal range that’s available for still shooting. There’s a built-in microphone to provide stereo audio recordings, and additional resolutions and frame rates are available.

Dual Viewing Systems. There’s both a 3.2-in. 921k-dot vari-angle TFT-LCD screen and a 2.4m-dot OLED electronic viewfinder for image composition and review.

Multiple Shooting Modes. There are several pre-programmed scene modes to choose from, including Auto, Dusk/Dawn, Moon, Bird-Watching, Portrait, and Landscape. For a more hands-on approach, exposure modes include Program Mode, Shutter Priority, Aperture Priority, and Manual Mode.

Built-In Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. You can use Nikon’s SnapBridge app in conjunction with the built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth functionality to remotely control the camera and transfer files with a linked mobile device.

Battery and Memory. The included EN-EL20a battery is rated for approximately 290 shots per charge. Images and video are recorded to SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards.
