The Nikon Coolpix 995 was announced on April 25, 2001 to supersede the Coolpix 990 in the Nikon Coolpix series. Similar in appearance to the 990, changes include a switch to a high-impact plastic case for the lens half of the swivel body, a pop-up flash to reduce red-eye by moving the bulb away from the lens, an increase in zoom capability to 4x, CompactFlash Type II compatibility and use of the EN-EL1 rechargeable Li-Ion battery in place of the previous four AA batteries.[1]

The Coolpix 9xx series of cameras is noteworthy for the swivel style body. This allowed the user to rotate the lens with respect to the LCD screen and controls providing comfortable viewing in a wide range of shooting positions. The swivel body also allowed a physically much larger lens to be packaged into the camera with a wide telephoto range and exceptional macro capabilities. The internal lens does not use a pop out design and a fixed 28mm threaded lens mounting ring was included at the front. The diameter of the mounting ring happens to coincide with that of most clinical microscopes, resulting in the 9xx series becoming popular for hand-held eyepiece-projection photomicrography. This mounting ring is present on the entire series, making them system cameras; a set of intercompatible telephoto, wide-angle, and fisheye converters were available, and worked on any of the 9xx cameras.

The Coolpix 9xx cameras were widely considered among the best cameras in their price range. Photographic quality was considered excellent with some minor lens distortions and chromatic aberration. Downsides of the Coolpix 995 included a concerns about the robustness of the CF compartment door.[2]

The Coolpix 995 was later superseded by the Coolpix 4500 and more recently by the Coolpix S4, with a 6 megapixel sensor, more point-and-shoot type photography features and less manual modes, among other changes.
