  • It would be funny, if it weren't so pathetic... Oh, Nikon. Nikon, Nikon. On the bright side, it looks like the situation cleared. No f/w update for P950. Thanks, Rat, for cutting this Gordian knot. ...
  • Most likely it won't work. Both P900 and P950 use Expeed processors. P900 uses Expeed C2. P950 is derived from P1000, which uses Expreed 4. It's unlikely that Nikon would downgrade, so P950 uses at ...
  • I don't think we have to worry about it. Uploading f/w is not done blindly. Assuming that you rename the file such that P950 would recognize it, there are many layers of protection preventing ...
  • Replied in coolpix L26
    Good pictures. They show street life without sugar coating.
  • I am in the frivolous mood today (or bad mood, since many things did not go as planned), so when I read your "nothing special" caption, an immature comeback came to mind: "what's this white stuff?..."

    Beautiful picture. Beautiful cat.
  • Replied in Ginkgo biloba
    When I read it, I went outside and took a picture of a small lawn behind my neighbor's house... especially for you !!! :-D *NOT* ginkgo biloba! But also yellow...
  • Replied in (Name rant)
    I don't have E950 anymore, but I still have E995. Prompted by this thread, I pulled it out to find out that the all batteries (including internal one) lost capacity, so for longer shooting ...
  • Replied in Ginkgo biloba
    This year in the Bay Area the ginkgo bill a leaf dropping extends over several weeks, thus when you drive, you can see green trees, yellow trees, and bare trees on the same street. But I remember ...
  • Created discussion thread Ginkgo biloba
    Most of vegetation in the Bay Area consists of evergreens and conifers, so in the fall there are not many yellow, red and brown trees forming colorful patterns. That said, in the urban area one ...

    Thank you guys, I really appreciate it I am trying to do my best.
  • Replied in It's back!
    Let me be facetious: maybe on the dark web, maybe you have to sign your soul to Nikon in order to get it, but I live in the U.S., and have not seen it. More on, I have not heard of it before Rat ...
  • Replied in (Name rant)
    Don't get me wrong: I fully agree with you that it's easy to confuse "old" 950 with "new" 950. In my opinion, Nikon's product naming strategy is far from prefect. Initially they had Coolpix 950, ...
  • Replied in It's back!
    Well, let's see... The pictures in Rat's post (at least the first one) were taken with P950, as it can be seen in the box on the right: The Nikon download page for P950 does not have any f/w to ...
  • Replied in It's back!
    Ver. 1.3 ? When mine arrived not a long time ago, it had f/w 1.0 in it. There is no f/w available to download from Nikon website. If you have 1.3, then there should be 1.2 available from there. (Or ...
  • Replied in Follow up
    I was not happy with my previous picture, so I decided to do a follow up. What would be the best background for a brooch? Well, fabric... But I recalled that once I had seen a classy watch ...
  • Created discussion thread Spider brooch
    Yesterday, despite the frenzy of incoming Thanksgiving , my wife decided to go through a few drawers that had not been opened for years, and maybe even for decades. In one of them she found a ...
  • I recently (okay, relatively recently) bought a Zecti bag for my P1000. The story was described in this thread: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4512283 (Skip the raptor story in the ...
  • I never thought of it. 😄 There is actually a reason why I didn’t. By doing this, you are virtually converting flash into a remote trigger, thus removing it from the flash pool you have. So, if you ...
  • All are great, but, in my opinion, the last one is the best!
