I’m on the hunt for a new camera, so I jumped at the chance to review the Nikon Coolpix P600.
Pushing NIKKOR optics to new heights, the COOLPIX P600 boasts a 60x optical zoom from a wide-angle 24mm to an astonishing 1440mm (35mm equivalent) range, and can reach even further using Dynamic Fine Zoom*. Lens Shift Vibration Reduction (VR) image stabilization helps reduce the effects of camera shake, allowing users to capture clear photos from incredible distances. With built-in Wi-FiⓇ2, users can easily share amazing photos with family and friends by transferring images to a compatible smartphone or tablet and uploading them to their social networks.
This camera is a step up from my normal compact camera, but is still small enough to be popped into a purse or backpack. I carried this around in my small red purse for the weekend while I was in Montreal, and it was fine!
What I Loved:
- Low-light CMOS Sensor. This was awesome for low light shots! Especially in restaurants.
- 60x Zoom-NIKKOR Glass Lens made a lot of zooming possible. Loved it.
- Food Scene Mode: This was my favourite mode. I would say that most of the photos I take are food related, so that was good.
See how sharp and vibrant all of the food shots look? I found that really impressive.When it wasn’t food, the photos were still bright and captured details beautifully.
The Nikon Coolpix P600 is $479.95 and is available in black and red.
