Nikon adds to its impressive line-up of bridge cameras with the COOLPIX P950, which boasts an impressive 83x optical zoom. This robust superzoom camera updates the COOLPIX P900 with a range of sought-after features that make it exceptionally easy to capture distant subjects in extraordinary detail – in stunning close-up images and strikingly sharp 4K movies.
With its extensive reach, the COOLPIX P950 is the ideal companion camera for photographers who want to photograph birds or wildlife, or for keen aircraft spotters. The 83x optical zoom offers a focal length range of 24–2000 mm1, while the 166x Dynamic Fine Zoom digitally extends the upper limit to an incredible 4000 mm2.
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.
