Nikon is a precision optical company with worldwide manufacturing, research and marketing capabilities. The Nikon name is equated with extraordinary photographic performance, innovation, precision and optical quality.
With a focal length range of 24–2000 mm, this Nikon COOLPIX P950 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.
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.
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. VR Active mode delivers a more stable viewfinder and monitor image, ideal when you’re on the move.
Easily record stereo 4K/UHD 30p footage, or Full HD (1080p) video at frame rates of up to 60p. Clean HDMI out lets 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.
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 play back at either 25 fps or 30 fps. Scene modes automatically set the most appropriate shooting interval for your subject.
