Nikon Coolpix 950 Review
Compact Flash Compartment
My gripe about the CF compartment door is that on occasions it would flop open (there's really nothing to hold it closed other than friction).
In the images above you can also see the badly positioned tripod mount (although, with this compact design and bottom compartment layout there's hardly anywhere else to put it). So, unfortunately, when the CP950 is on a tripod or tripod quick release (such as Manfrotto tripods utilise) you cannot eject the CF card or change the batteries without unscrewing the tripod mount. Shame.
(cunning red rubber band is an optional extra)
Shame Nikon didn't decide to go with USB, serial is almost pointless for a camera which generates 500KB-1MB image files...
Supplied with the camera is this very attractive soft padded case (ahem). Actually an improvement over the previous Coolpix 9xx case, has several "hard" sections internally and a belt strap on the side (although I found the 950 just a little too big and a little too heavy to carry on my belt). Also supplied is a shoulder strap.
