Other Notes: The 950, like all 9xx series Coolpix cameras, are still used as inexpensive microscopy cameras due primarily to the exceptional macro capabilities. 28mm threaded eyepiece adapters for popular commercial microscopes are widely available. Modern digital cameras filter out most of the infrared spectrum that their sensors detect. The older generation of cameras however, such as the Coolpix 950, did not filter so much IR light and are still useful today as inexpensive means to achieving this type of photography. The 950 body is made of magnesium.
