Nikon took most of the serious suggestions from users of the 900 and 900s, and incorporated them into the 950. Quite an amazing camera -- feature packed! Clear sharp images, astounding macros. I didn't get in early with this camera, but I've certainly never regretted deciding to get it. Problems: There are some firmware bugs, but the firmware is user upgradable and Nikon is actively working on upgrades. Some users have had problems with the CF door, the tripod mount position and LCD ...

I've had the camera now for about 6 weeks and have clicked the shutter over 1400 times. Nikon takes wonderful photos especially close up ones. The distant photos are ok but still suffer the same problem that all digital cameras sufffer. The macro is fantastic. Lots of features to choose from and the swivel body is handy when you get use to it. Problems: *Command dial is hard to get to. *Red eye flash doesnt' work at long distances. *Camera locked up on me once - had to remove batteries to reset.

The CP950 has many "manual" features that give you greater control over the images you capture. This gives it more functionality than a "point and shoot" camera. That is why I give it a Good for ease of use. It is easy to use, once you figure out all of the options. You need to spend some time with the unit to get the most out of it.

The Nikon CP 950 sets the standard for present state of the art digital photography for cameras in a reasonable price range. As someone who has come up through the ranks in the past seven years with digital cameras, the 950 is clearly a revelation. Minor problems such as the memory card door and minor barrel distortion certainly do not detract from the incredible resolution and versatility of this significant advancement in digital photography.

Fabulous macro, handy size, useful low-light capability. Very good all-rounder. Problems: CF door/tripod mount not ideal. LCD unusable in bright light.

Excellent macro. I love the ability to adjust the white balance. Very solid feel. Love the accessories, esp. the fisheye lens and able to sync out to external flash. Problems: Limited availability of acessories. Nikon should have printed the manual in black and white rather than include it on CD-ROM. Flash is a bit overpowered.

Mini-Review: Amazing Macro Zoomrange extendable from 24mm to 230mm with adapters Lots of manual controls possible. Uncompressed and near-uncompressed modes available Compact and storage efficient shape Problems: Problems: Barreldistortion and pincushion distortion significant but can be eliminated with Photoshop plug-in. Compact Flash door opens easily, can be fixed easily. No selftimer in Macro Mode.
