Nikon Coolpix 950

In 1998 the Coopix 900 inaugurates a series of digital cameras of very peculiar shape : lens and screen belong to 2 separate entities, swiveling up to 90 degrees versus each other around the long axis. They are sometimes called « swivel ».These models are the Coolpix 900, 900s, 910, 950, 990 and 995. The Coolpix 4500, Coolpix S4, Coolpix S10, will be the last offsprings of these series. These models were introduced on the market in the same order as their numbering.

Versus the 910, the 950 has a same size sensor, but with a higher definition. It is upgraded from 1315 x 989 to 1589 x 1195 pixels, hence from 1.3 to 1.9 MPix.

The 950 has a 3x optical zoom supplemented by digital one, namely a 35mm equivalent zoom range of 38 to 115 mm. The 910 has the same zoom range.

The 950 shutter allows a fairly long maximum exposure of 8 seconds, versus 1/4 second max for the 910.
Even though the LCD screens on the back are of identical size on both models, the 950’s was upgraded from 114 000 to 130 000 pixels.
The 950 is equipped with a USB port. Wide- and tele-photo optical attachments can be installed.
2 variants of these models exist, with a black color of slightly different density. On one of them only, there is a red plastic inlay.
