Re: P950 vs P1000 anyone?

Have the 1000 but neither 9x0 cameras. Had a small Fuji bridge with 18x zoom. I find the heavier cameras much easier to keep steady on target and use an external battery grip with any DSLRs for the additional mass. I also use a Steadicam vest rig and other inertially loaded mechanical gimbals for video. The greater mass imparts a bit more inertial resistance to shake and makes for easy tracking of objects moving on a predictable path. A lighter camera is nice for packing and transport and allows for adding weight as desired but I've never found the mass of the P1000 to interfere with its functionality for taking images.
