The Nikon COOLPIX P600 – Sophisticated performance for heightened creativity

Created for those who love capturing every detail, the portable yet powerful COOLPIX P600 combines exquisite precision and a super-zoom lens with a beautifully designed body.

Its 60x optical zoom NIKKOR lens, extendable to 120x with Dynamic Fine Zoom*, covers a 24-1440mm range and has Super ED glass for exceptional image quality. In perfect complement to the camera’s extreme close-up capabilities, the COOLPIX P600 features a large vari-angle high resolution (921k dots) LCD screen with bright RGBW technology to help artistic photographers get a unique view and frame shots more creatively. Meanwhile, Advanced Lens Shift Vibration Reduction (VR) ensures clear images even at 60x telephoto and Active mode minimises camera shake when walking or shooting from a moving vehicle, even in the hands of the most dynamic action photographers. 

New features like focus peaking emphasise the edges of a focused area so you can easily view them on-screen and adjust the intensity for finer detail. Meanwhile the camera’s smart AF algorithm and multitask processor ensure you can always catch key moments in perfect focus with significantly reduced waiting time between shots. Built-in Wi-Fi makes it easy to share all your adventures, via a smart device for instant uploading via email or social media networks**. 

Another advantage for those who like a portable camera to explore the great outdoors is continuous shooting up to 7fps, which is ideal for capturing images of a fast-moving animal or a speeding car. For budding filmmakers, the COOLPIX P600 records Full HD 1080/60i movies with stereo sound at the touch of a button, allowing you to document a high quality scene from any angle. The Customisable Function Button mode gives rapid access to settings like ISO sensitivity, white balance or exposure metering for full creative control. 

James Loader, Senior Product Manager Consumer Products at Nikon UK, comments: “The COOLPIX P600 is a high performance camera that is set to impress, thanks to the incredible 60x zoom lens, superb image quality and full manual control for creative flexibility. 

He adds: “As a leading product in the COOLPIX range, the P600 includes useful features like one-touch Full HD movie making, focus peaking, new smart AF algorithm and a vari-angle screen to get the best results in both your photography and videography.”

The COOLPIX P600 will be available in black and red.

Just wish they would widen up the bottom end.
Panasonic's FZ70K goes to 20mm equiv.
As a Realtor, I do a lot of indoor shots and have always wished for even a smidge wider capability to fit a whole bedroom in a shot with my P520.

To Homer Dodge.

We have a real estate agency in Slovakia and we use a Samsung EX1 with 1.8 lens for our indoor shots, mostly without flash. The results are quite enough for our purpose.

You may consider buying a Samsung EX2f which has a 1.4 lens.

Just bought my Coolpix P600, so I'm just learning how to use it. I've studied photography at college for 2 years, and at one time owned my own wedding photography business with an assortment of Pentax SLR cameras, filters, darkroom enlargers and all that. Since then I've owned a couple of digital pocket cameras and even won a photo contest with one. Now I'm retired, don't like carrying a bunch of different lenses and assorted camera equipment, so I purchased the P600. I'm disappointed that I can't find a polarizing filter to fit the camera, nor a lens shade. Another complaint is that it doesn't have a hot shoe for an external flash. Also the enclosed "Quick Start Guide" doesn't cover as many features of the camera that I would like. For instance, I understand there is a double exposure feature, but have not been able to find it yet. Other than that, the camera works well, and I simply need to learn its features.

R. Hoeppner, I have had my P600 for about 6 months now and I have not had any problems with getting 52 mm filters and such to screw right on to the lens. I have ND, UV, Pol and diopter filters for it. I also have the rubber and solid lens hoods for it. Anything in 52mm should work. John
