Take it all in
High-flying birds. Frame-filling aerobatics. The COOLPIX P950 bridge camera packs an incredible 83x optical zoom (2000 mm equivalent) into a robust body. Whether you’re at the air show or on safari, this superzoom gives you the freedom to get up close for standout photos and 4K movies.
Near and far
With a focal length range of 24–2000 mm, this COOLPIX superzoom takes you to the heart of every scene. Go wide to show the intensity of an electric storm over the ocean. Zoom in to capture sharply focused images of distant wildlife. The 166x Dynamic Fine Zoom digitally extends the upper zoom limit to an incredible 4000 mm.¹
You get great results from dawn to dusk thanks to the backside-illuminated CMOS sensor and bright NIKKOR lens with wide f/2.8 maximum aperture. Nikon’s EXPEED image-processing engine and Super ED glass reduce distortion at high zoom. Whether you’re zooming in on a banking plane or filming shy wildlife, you’re ready for every opportunity.
Thrilling 4K superzoom movies
Easily record stereo 4K/UHD 30p footage or Full HD (1080p) video at frame rates of up to 60p. Clean HDMI outlets let you output videos to an external monitor during recording. A built-in microphone jack lets you use an external mic for better sound. Movie Manual mode lets you adjust key exposure settings while filming: ideal in changing light.
Star trails and dawn skies
The in-camera time-lapse function is perfect for showing skyscapes, star trails, or plants opening in a forest glade. You can record magical time-lapse movies of approx. 10 seconds duration, which playback at either 25 fps or 30 fps. Scene modes automatically set the most appropriate shooting interval for your subject.²
Get steady photos and video footage, even when shooting handheld at super-telephoto lengths, or in low light. Nikon’s Dual Detect Optical Vibration Reduction (VR) lets you shoot up to five shutter stops slower than otherwise possible.³ VR Active mode delivers a more stable viewfinder and monitor image, ideal when you’re on the move.
Stay on target
The side zoom control lets you extend the lens with your thumb. A simple press of the snap-back zoom button retracts the lens to a wider angle: ideal when you want to pick up subjects that have moved out of shot.
The full-size hot shoe makes it easy to mount Nikon accessories like Speedlights. Or try the Nikon DF-M1 Dot Sight: this foldable scope helps track even fast-flying birds and keep them in the centre of the frame.
Bird-watching mode lets you select three different AF areas to keep fast-moving subjects in focus. Moon mode optimises camera settings for clear astronomical images: ideal for capturing the moon in all its phases.
The SnapBridge app for iOS and Android enables an always-on connection between your COOLPIX P950 and a smart device. Share photos. Track trips via the GPS on your smart device, which SnapBridge uses to update location and date. The SnapBridge app also lets you use your smart device to operate the camera’s zoom or release the shutter.
