Digital Camera Description

The Nikon Coolpix P950 is a Large Digital Camera with a 1/2.3" sensor. Its 16 Megapixels CMOS sensor offers an ISO 100-6400 sensitivity range which is expandable to ISO 100-6400. This makes it possible to shoot hand-held in relatively low-light. With 16 MP of resolution, sharp prints are possible up to at 240 DPI.

A builtin Image Stabilization mechanism allows the Nikon Coolpix P950 to compensate for camera shake up to 5.5-Stops beyond hand-holding.

This camera features a mechanic shutter that can expose for 1/4000 to 5s. This camera can make Bulb exposures up to 1m. With a fastest shutter-speed of 1/4000, fast action can easily be frozen. Given that is does not support very slow shutter-speeds, this camera is unsuitable for night photography. This camera model offers Full Manual Controls.

Nikon Coolpix P950

The Nikon Coolpix P950 features a Contrast-Detect AF system. Autofocus can continuously adjust according to subject distance. A Real-Time Autofocus Tracking System allows focus to follow a moving subject within the frame. Manual Focus is also available.

Rare triple control-dials are featured on this digital camera, giving the efficient direct control over every exposure-parameter needed by professional photographers. This camera does not feature any seals to protect it against adverse weather, dust and moisture. Care must be taken, just like with most electronics. Framing on the Nikon Coolpix P950 is performed via a 0.20" Built-in EVF with 2.4 Megapixels. This EVF shows 100% coverage.
