The 3.2-inch, 921K-dot vari-angle LCD monitor is carried over from the P1000 and is a handy upgrade on the 3-inch monitor found on the P900. Its flip-forward hinge makes selfies a doddle, and it gives an accurate preview of colour and contrast. The only slight bugbear is with most smartphones now having Retina-effect screens which effectively make the boundaries between pixels invisible, you can spot individual pixels on the P950's screen when viewing at a typical distance, making it appear a little low res next to a phone. That’s an 83x zoom and the sort of focal length range that most interchangeable-lens photographers can only dream about. From the outside, the number of upgrades that have been made to the Nikon Coolpix P950, when compared to its predecessor, the P900, seem relatively few. However, at least two of those upgrades are important - the ability to shoot in raw format and the addition of 4K video recording. The former is particularly important for enthusiast photographers, and was one of the most disappointing omissions from the P900. to 1s; In P, A mode, 1/2000 to 2 s (at ISO sensitivity [100-1600]) or 1/2000 to 30 s (when ISO sensitivity is fixed at [100]); In S, M mode, 1/4000 (at wide-angle position, with largest f-number setting (smallest aperture)) to 30 s (can be set at ISO sensitivity 3200 or lower); Bulb and Time setting (can be set when ISO sensitivity is 1600 or lower in M mode): Up to 60 seconds. When recording movies, 1/8000 to 1/30 s (at Frame rate [30 fps (30p/60p)]) or 1/8000 to 1/25 s (at Frame rate [25 fps (25p/50p)]) Looking to upgrade your equipment?

Edit with high-quality files. The COOLPIX P950 supports RAW (NRW) image capture, letting you save and export uncompressed image files to your processing/editing program of choice.The sound from the internal mic is reasonably good, though an external mic is a sensible addition to your kit if you want decent audio in windy conditions and to eliminate operational sounds. Flare As the P950 uses the same sensor and lens combination as the older P900, the image quality remains roughly the same, although you now get the boost of Raw shooting (more on that later). Helpfully, there’s lens-base stabilisation (VR) available for use when shooting still images and both lens and electronic (digital) stabilisation for video shooting. Vari-angle LCD monitor. Bright and larger 8.1 cm (3.2 in) 921k-dot LCD monitor can be tilted and twisted in almost any direction.

Burst capture is available too. The P950 is able to snap up to 10 Raw+JPG, Raw, or JPG shots at a time at a 7fps capture rate. It's able to make images faster if you drop the resolution, but it's a big drop to get to 60fps (2MP) or 120fps (0.3MP). There's a delay before you can make another image as photos write to the card, between five and ten seconds depending on how fast a card you use and what file format you're using. Imaging and Video There’s also a small collection of Picture Control modes (Standard, Neutral, Vivid and Monochrome) and each can be adjusted to taste. The P950's rated 5.5EV of image stabilization (or Vibration Reduction, to use Nikon's parlance) is unchanged from the P900, and still very impressive. The first of Nikon's modern superzoom compacts that I can remember using was the P500 (2011) and the 'snaking' in the viewfinder at long focal lengths, caused by the VR system trying to keep the image stable was literally nauseating. There's still some of that with the P950, but on the whole, provided you're not trying to handhold the camera at 2000mm in a gale, the stabilization is excellent. It's actually possible to get sharp shots at shutter speeds as long as 1/50 sec at the extreme end of the telephoto range with some experimentation, which is remarkable. Bluetooth Specification Version 4.1; Operating frequency: Bluetooth: 2402 to 2480 MHz, Bluetooth Low Energy: 2402 to 2480 MHz; Maximum output power: Bluetooth: 7.2 dBm (EIRP) Bluetooth Low Energy: 7.2 dBm (EIRP) default setting), [100-3200], [100-6400], [100], [200], [400], [800], [1600], [3200], and [6400] are available when using P, S, A, M, U, or Movie manual modeLooking at other brands' offerings, only the Canon PowerShot SX70 HS comes close to matching the P950's abilities, with its 21-1265mm equivalent zoom range getting close to the P950 in the tele range while offering a wider field of view at the wide end. The SX70 HS can shoot slightly faster than the P950 (and has a similarly high-quality EVF). Compose incredible shots with the bright 8.1 cm (3.2 in) 921k-dot LCD monitor, which can be tilted and twisted in almost any direction. It’s easy to frame images when holding the camera up high or down low. With up to 83x optical zoom available, it’s important to discuss how well the zoom performs. The biggest problem is that aperture narrows to f/6.3 at the furthest reach, so if light is anything but optimal, you might see some obvious loss in image quality, even at reasonably small sizes. Users can rely on the P950 to photograph life’s most unique subjects with incredible accuracy and focus thanks to its Target Finding AF capabilities, 7 fps continuous shooting and ISO sensitivity up to 6400. A great option for photographers of all skill levels, the COOLPIX P950 features user-friendly controls alongside an intuitive menu system and a 2359k-dot EVF, making it easier to review and capture one-of-a-kind shots. Using dedicated Bird-Watching and Moon Modes, photographers can effortlessly snap photos of their world and beyond. The new P950 also adds RAW (NRW) photo recording, an enhanced high-resolution electronic viewfinder and Nikon SnapBridge 2,3,4 to seamlessly share images or remotely control the camera.

In actual real-world use, it’s likely that you’ll get more than the quoted amount – you can safely expect it to last a day of moderate use. If you do find you need to charge it while on the go, another improvement from the predecessor is the addition of USB charging. Image and video quality The Nikon Coolpix P950's 83x zoom lens provides an astonishing focal range of 24-2000mm in 35mm terms, as demonstrated below. Compatible with the following accessories (available separately): MC-DC2 Remote Cord, WR-R10/WR-1 Wireless Remote Controller Other top-plate controls include the Fn button—it's programmable, and adjusts the continuous drive mode by default. The On/Off button, Mode dial, and the main command dial round out the top controls. Whereas the P900’s video capability peaks at Full HD, the P950 can shoot 4K video at 25/30p. Plus there’s a 3.5mm mic port to connect an external microphone and the ability to output a clean feed via HDMI.

The P950 will appeal to birders who want the versatility and handling of a DSLR, but without the weight or bother of carrying around a bag of lenses. The 24-2,000 mm zoom range means everything from distant or fly-over birds to butterflies and wildflowers can be subjects. As someone who uses a DSLR, this flexibility within one camera was superb. Of course, a lot of people shopping for cameras of this type might not have any experience of shooting with an ILC, or even know what the terms Raw mode or 4K video mean. They just want a camera with a really powerful lens that they can take anywhere, and use to shoot whatever they find there. On a related note, if you tend to shoot mostly at one or other end of the P950's zoom, you can save time on startup by presetting your desired default focal length via the camera's menu. I deliberately exposed this image so as to preserve the delicate highlights on the distant mountains, but I went too far. (Pro Tip: Always use that histogram, kids!). The result was a muddy, uninteresting JPEG (not helped by an over-warm rendering by the P950's AWB system). A few minutes in Adobe Camera Raw allowed me to pull a lot more detail – and a much more realistic tone in terms of color and contrast – from the .NRW Raw file. Despite keeping the resolution the same while increasing its size, the P950’s screen gives a good preview of the scene. It’s also handy to be able to angle it to give a clear view whether you’re shooting upright or landscape format images.

Wildlife or bird photographers shooting at first light or at dusk get great results thanks to the bright NIKKOR lens with wide f/2.8 maximum aperture. Image quality is sharp, even when shooting at high zoom. Video shooters can record breath taking 4K movie footage of elusive subjects and users can adjust key exposure settings while filming, which is ideal in changing light. The COOLPIX P950 also supports RAW (NRW) image capture so users can make the most of advanced processing/editing programs. And a full-size hot shoe enables use of Nikon accessories like mics or scopes.

This is presumably a result of the higher resolution viewfinder, with 290 shots per charge quoted, compared to 360 for the P900. The Nikon COOLPIX P1000 is one of the most extreme Nikon Zooms ever. It not only features a stunning 125x optical zoom (24mm – 3,000mm equivalent in 35mm) but also boasts a 250x Dynamic Fine Zoom that increases the focal length to 6,000mm—and extends the digital zoom to 12,000mm. The P900 comes with an 83x optical zoom (24-2,000mm equivalent). With so much range, both cameras have become the go-to for safaris and wildlife photography, but if you're looking for a little more range, the P1000 is your best bet. The viewfinder is an OLED, one that's very sharp at 2.36 million dots. Nikon doesn't publish the magnification rating, but does state the display itself is about 0.39 inches in size. It's plenty large to my eye, delivering as much confidence in evaluating framing and exposure as I get with a midrange mirrorless camera. 57.1mm (320mm equivalent), f/6.3, 1/6-second, ISO 100 Connectivity and PowerThe P950 includes a vari-angle display screen and an eye-level EVF for image framing and review. The 3.2-inch screen feels a bit dated—its 921k-dot design isn't as pixel dense as you'll find on many new cameras, and there's no support for touch input. The Nikon Coolpix P950 is a camera for photographers who always want to zoom in a little bit farther, without having to spend the money on an interchangeable lens camera and a big, long telezoom lens. It builds on its predecessor's functions, with thoughtful additions like Raw capture, 4K video, and a microphone input. 285mm (1,600mm equivalent), f/6.3, 1/640-second, ISO 100
