Nikon CP950 user instructions
Ok, I know this might sound a little stupid, but here it is:I live in Taiwan and purchased a CP950 from Japan(At the time when it's not imported yet). Though the manuals are in Japanese, but I could get around it a little bit since some characters are the same between Japanese and Chinese. But I've lost the user manual..Before I could find a dealer in Taiwan which I know exists, but never found yet, I'm in desperate need of the following information, I know it's quite a few, but any partial answers would be greately apprciated:1) I've heard alot about ISO settings, and they range up to 320(?), and what I've learned is to hold down the button under the shutter, and turn with wheel. What I see while doing it, is 100S, +1S, +2S, but don't see other numbers like 320 or something...2) How could I tell when I'm in macro mode? Is it shown by X1.25, X2.5.. etc.?3) I can't figure out what the AE-lock does...4) When I toggle the second button under shutter to a 'flower' mark, as I move the camera, it changes color, what's with it?I know the questions might seem basic to most of you, but I'm new to d-cams and haven't had a whole lot of experience with films either, but any suggestions or comments would really help.And thank you in advance.Tony Ko..

1) what you did here was right. +1 and +2 increases the sensitivity (ISO) +2 = 320.2) macro mode is the "flower" (don't know why it changes colour for you.3) AE lock is useful in Panorama mode ie, if you want to take a series of shots and join them together. You enable the lock after the first exposure and it maintains exposure and colour bablance for the next however many you take. Don't forget to 'unlock' after the series of photos.regards, Peter..

Hi Peter,Thank you so much for the information. Now I'm confident in changing ISO.The flower mark changes to green color 'sometimes', at a specific range->target, but I still haven't figured out the exact requirement for it to do so.BTW, I upgraded 1.1 to 1.2 which I downloaded yesterday, and with no problems(I think) Tony..

Tony, the changing of the color of the flower to yellow indicates that you have entered the macro mode. That is the only focal length range that allows you to get super close to an object and focus. When not yellow, the close focus point will still be a few inches. Try it. You will see the difference...

Hi Tony this is probably a silly suggestion, but did you check the CD that came with your camera for an English version of the manual? I have a Nikon CP950 and the CD that came with it has several language versions, inc Japanese.GREAT CAMERA Robin..

Sorry guys, for the late reply, but I was away on business trip.<STEVE>.

Thank you for the info, I was wrong, I thought it changes while I move the camera around, but actually changes when I set the zoom to certain level... around mid point.<ROBIN>.

Not silly at all, but I checked the content of the CD, which was labeled 'Nikon View Version 2.1', and [JPN], which I suppose is Japanese version only... But I don't see any other languages. Thank you anyway. Maby there're differences between Asia, America, Europe versions..?<SCOTT>.

Thank you for the info, as a matter of fact, that was the first place I looked while searching info concerning the digital camera, though it didn't help much, but that's how I found this place(among others), it's a great thing for me.. Best regards to you all.Tony Ko..

I just got my copy of "A short course in Nikon Coolpix 950 Photography" by Dennis Curtin. While I have only just barely started reading it, I would recommend it. Just about anything you want to know about the Nikon is in this book. Much more complete than Nikon's instructions. I got my copy at thomas distribution, but many digital suppliers stock it...
