Nikon Coolpix P950 brings new features to one of the last big super cameras

    This story is part of CESwhere CNET covers the latest on the most incredible technology coming soon.

    Digital point-and-shoot cameras used to be an important part of CES, but those days are long gone. However, Nikon has announced an update is coming Zoom 83x Coolpix P900. The new P950 is largely the same as its predecessor, so there’s only a slight change in the name and still uses the same lens that starts at the ultra-wide 24mm and ends at an astounding 2,000mm. It is also paired with the same small 1/2.3-inch 16-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor.

    What’s new is that you can shoot video in 4K Ultra HD and capture raw images, which means you can rescue some fine image detail from Nikon’s heavy noise reduction.

    Nikon also added a larger, higher-resolution electronic viewfinder; a hot shoe that also works with its DF-M1 Dot Sight (great for birding); microphone jack for using external microphones; and Nikon’s SnapBridge wireless system to transfer photos to your phone for sharing.

    The Nikon Coolpix 950 launched in February for $800. If none of that sounds essential to your needs, Nikon will sell current stock of the P900 until it runs out and can be found for under $500.
