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. The COOLPIX P950 puts the incredible power of a 2,000mm zoom lens into a compact body that weighs just 899 g. This combination of portability and super-telephoto performance is incredible, giving photographers the freedom to take their creativity to exciting new places.

The COOLPIX P950’s advanced optical system features a Super ED glass element used in Nikon’s heralded DSLR lenses, which provides higher image-forming capability and effectively reduces chromatic aberration, dynamically achieving superior image quality with super-telephoto shooting. The backside-illuminated CMOS image sensor, with 16.0 effective megapixels and sensitivity up to 6400 ISO, enables the capture of clear, sharp images even in dark shooting situations.
The COOLPIX P950 can record high-quality 4K UHD/30p movies across its entire zoom range, from 24mm all the way up to 2000mm. In Movie manual mode, you can completely control exposure and aperture settings for footage that looks just how you intended. AE can also be locked, even when ambient brightness changes significantly during movie recording. You can even choose the zoom speed during video recording by selecting one of three options with the side zoom control.
With RAW (NRW) file format support, full-resolution still images can be saved that contain all the setting information from the time of the shot, allowing post-capture image editing of white balance, exposure and COOLPIX Picture Controls without affecting the original.
Dynamic time-lapse movies of landscapes and more can be automatically created from a series of still images captured in interval timer shooting. Just select one of five scene mode options and the most appropriate interval is automatically set. Bulb and Time settings have been added to the COOLPIX P950’s shutter speed options to further customize the look of long exposure images, handy for taking pictures of fireworks, night landscapes, stars, or car light trails. The maximum exposure time for both the Bulb and Time settings is 60 seconds, with ISO sensitivity available up to 1600.
The COOLPIX P950 is equipped with a brilliant dual viewing system, featuring a super high resolution, 2359K-dot eye level electronic viewfinder (EVF), plus a large, bright, 3" 921K-dot Vari-angle LCD display with approximately 99% frame coverage. Flip out the Vari-angle LCD to creatively compose photos and videos from unique perspectives—overhead, down low or just comfortably in front of you. Bring the COOLPIX P950 up to your eye and the display automatically switches to the EVF for a beautiful and accurate high-resolution view.
