In this review, we will be comparing P1000 and P950, two Small Sensor Superzoom cameras by Nikon. Nikon P1000 was introduced to market in July 2018 and Nikon P950 was launched in January 2020. There is 18 months difference between P1000 and P950 so we don't expect to see a huge technology difference between these two cameras but it would still give an advantage to younger P950, especially in sensor tech.
Both Nikon P1000 and Nikon P950 cameras have 16.0MP 1/2.3" sensors. We can expect this to be a close match up because both models are ranked amongst the best in Small Sensor Superzoom cameras. Out of 244 cameras in this class, Nikon P1000 is ranked #8
with an overall score of 61 and Nikon P950 is ranked #10
with an overall score of 61.
