    This was a well-needed upgrade from the Nikon P900 and much more compact than the bulky P1000. Its kind of a combination of both, hence the P950 label. The viewfinder is a nice update. Much easier to see your photos before and after the shot. It also shoots in RAW format, and you have quick access to exposure compensation with a new dial on the left side of the camera. The "moon mode" is a nice option for those moon shots. It also shoots in 4K @ 30fps or 1080 @ 60 video. I wish it was weather and dust proof, as it's a great hiking camera being somewhat light and compact for a 2000mm zoom. The image stabilization is very impressive. A great asset when you're at 2000mm zoom. I'd say @ $799, it's a lot of bang for the buck. I wish it had a larger sensor, and maybe 20MP over 16MP, but from a value standpoint, Nikon did well. Five stars to both BestBuy (Chapel Hill Store) and Nikon.

    had the p900 years ago and couldn't get over how awesome the zoom is, no camera can compare to the zoom on these cameras. takes pretty good pics as well.

    This camera is an incredible value for the full range of features it provides. The larger view finder is a great improvement over the p900. Addition of 4K video opens up a whole new world of possibilities including ability to extract 8mp still photos from the video stream to capture the exact shot from an action recording. The ability to shot raw photos expands the ability to fine tune a desirable photo. I really like my p900 but always wished it had the additional features now included in my P950. The P950 has a new battery different from the p900 and takes fewer total photos per charge but this is easily overcome by buying additional batteries for times of longer shooting sessions. The addition of a lens hood on the P950 is also a nice feature missing on the p900. The versatility of being able to shoot incredibly close Macro to getting extremely long shots is great. Highly recommended!

    This camera produces nice image quality in good light. Stabilization is impressive. Zoom is super long. Snap back zoom feature is really helpful when zooming long distance. To my surprise, program mode is excellent. RAW is a nice feature but jpeg out of camera is very good. Nice viewfinder for a bridge camera. Button layout is good. Anything over 800 ISO is not recommended, 100-400 is best but wasn't expecting anything different from a small sensor camera. Lens is a marvel, blows my mind at the image quality at the long end. When you get into the digital zoom, make sure to use a sturdy tripod, cable release (or timer function) and turn off Vibration Reduction in menu, for optimal image quality. The lens hood is a bonus and needed. The camera is light, easy to use, and with a little practice, you will get consistently good results.

    I was looking for a camera for taking bird pictures and wanted a good zoom range. This is perfect for this. The zoom is great to capture small birds at quite a distance. In fact, I was able to see, identify and photograph a bird I only suspected was there with the naked eye and could see with binoculars but not enough to identify. It's also surprisingly good for close up macro-type work. It has its limitations otherwise, but for what I was needing it to do, it has been terrific.

    This camera is amazing. I had a P900 for many years and these are used for my business. The pictures, settings and ease of use is great. Love my Nikon's.

    Due to COVID 19 and being in lock down since purchasing the camera, I have not had the opportunity to play with as much as I'd like. In going through the functions and learning about the ability of the camera, it will be fun to take creative shots. It should be a great travel camera with all it has to offer, Love the range of the lens, but don't forget the tripod.

    Super long range, very sharp pictures. Perfect birding wildlife cam. I’ve gotten pictures that I couldn’t have gotten before. The 24mm wide angle is great for group pictures or landscapes. Most fun I have had with a camera in years. Glad I bought it.

    Great camera! Zoom is incredible. A little bigger and heavier but worth it for the quality of the pictures.
