The Nikon Coolpix 950, released in early 1999, was an impressive digital camera that defined Nikon’s vision of a high-end all-in-one camera. It boasted features like a swivel lens, a magnesium body, and a maximum resolution of 1600×1200 (1.92 megapixels). With an 83× optical zoom and a minimum focusing distance of 2 centimeters, it was a versatile choice for photography enthusiasts. Now, let’s talk about the price. The Coolpix 950 was priced around $850 to $1000 when it hit the market. Considering inflation, that would be roughly equivalent to $1300 in today’s currency. Keep in mind that this camera was ahead of its time, offering features like capturing directly in TIFF format (although file transfer times could be lengthy) and custom-preset white balance. Its exceptional macro capabilities made it popular for microscopy photography, and it’s still remembered as a durable and rugged camera. If you’re curious about its modern counterpart, the Nikon COOLPIX P950 is available today for $999. Quite a leap in technology since the Coolpix 950’s debut!

The 950 incorporated improvements over the 900 such as a stronger swivel hinge, a magnesium case (except the plastic battery door) and increased sensor resolution. The 950's ability to capture directly in TIFF format was unusual for the time, although the file transfer time (depending on CF card write speed available at the time) could be over 30 seconds in this mode. The 950 came with a 8MB CF card, and the card could contain only 1 image file shot in the TIFF mode (~5.6MB). The maximum CF capacity for the 950 is 64MB.
Other advanced features of the 950 included shutter and aperture priority modes and the ability to custom-preset white balance. The 950 included a flash-sync socket for use with various Nikon external flash units (no shoe-mount was provided, however). As with all 9xx series, the lens movement during focusing and zooming was all internal, resulting in superior weather and dust resistance. The 950 shared with other 9xx series cameras the 28 mm filter threads and shared numerous Nikon and 3rd-party filters and diopter filters.
The 950, like all 9xx series Coolpix cameras, are still used as inexpensive microscopy cameras, primarily due to the exceptional macro capabilities. 28 mm threaded eyepiece adapters for popular commercial microscopes are widely available.
Modern digital cameras filter out most of the infrared spectrum that their sensors detect. The older generation of cameras, such as the Coolpix 950, however, did not filter so much IR light and are still useful today as inexpensive means to achieving this type of photography.
