Hello, having myself to decide bw P1000 and newer P950 I finally chose the P1000, here are the reasons

P1000 is slightly cheaper when I write this vs P950 while it should be opposite

The whole point of such camera is reach, I plan to use it mostly at high magnification, if I want to take medium range pictures, I use other camera I already have

On the other hand if you plan to have one as your only camera P950 is likely a better choice

Aside size and weight there is not any feature improvement on P950 vs P1000 two years after

So yes it's bulky, but no more than an large DSLR, I have weighed my D800E+lens above 2,5kg not even with a grip

just my 2 cents


Welcome to the Coolpix forum.   Good choice, the P1000 is a modern marvel, as the 3000mm reach is unique among cameras.
