In this review, we will be comparing P950 and P1000, two Small Sensor Superzoom cameras by Nikon. Nikon P950 was introduced to market in January 2020 and Nikon P1000 was launched in July 2018. There is 18 months difference between P950 and P1000 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 P950 and Nikon P1000 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 P950 is ranked #9
with an overall score of 63 and Nikon P1000 is ranked #8
with an overall score of 63.
