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 camera also has built in WiFi so that you can see your photos instantly on your cell phone. It works with iPhone and Android.
The Nikon Coolpix P600 is $479.95 and is available in black and red.
