The COOLPIX P600, Nikon’s high-performance compact camera with a high-quality NIKKOR lens, combines power-packed features in a specially designed compact, refined body for outdoor photography. The COOLPIX P600 is available for AED 1999 at all major retailers.

“Our entire COOLPIX range is designed for individuals who are looking for user-friendly cameras that offer a hassle-free shooting experience and instant sharing due to inbuilt Wi-Fi” said Takashi Yoshida, Managing Director Nikon MEA. “The COOLPIX P600 takes that one step further by incorporating top-of-the range features, such as a high-performance NIKKOR lens, equipped with a super ED glass element that is typically used in NIKKOR lenses – a first for our compact cameras.”

The new COOLPIX P600 is the perfect camera for adventurers, with an easy-to-hold, 565g compact body designed for secure holding. With one of the most powerful zoom lenses in COOLPIX history, the P600 boasts a 60x optical zoom – an outstanding range for users that require the very best in performance and versatility under challenging conditions. The P600 features high ISO sensitivity to ensure quality images in low-light conditions, and even allows close-up shots of up to almost 1cm.

The P600 has built-in Wi-Fi capabilities to cater to the growing demand for users to stay connected and share their images on social networking sites easily. The Wi-Fi functions and Nikon’s Wireless Mobile Utility app (available at the App Store or Google Play) enables remote shooting from and automatic transfer to compatible smart devices. The camera also comes with Eye-Fi support.

Capturing photos outdoors can be tricky, especially when on the move. To ensure minimal camera shake, the COOLPIX P600 is equipped with an electronic viewfinder with approximately 201k-dot, 0.2-inch type LCD. Looking through the electronic viewfinder stabilizes the photographer’s posture and a side zoom lever assures minimal shake when zooming. Even if image blur occurs when shooting from a moving vehicle or while walking, the new ACTIVE mode on the P600 effectively compensates for it, resulting in clear, sharp images.

If pictures aren’t enough to tell the whole story, the P600 enables Full HD 1080/60i video recording with stereo sound to capture all your daring escapades in brilliant detail. The camera comes with record pause, still-image saving and optical zoom during movie recording functions, as well as HDMI support. It also allows autofocus and the ability to lock auto exposure during movie recording.

The COOLPIX P600’s versatile shooting functions and adaptable features enable individual image creation. For example, users can shoot images at unique angles thanks to a vari-angle, approximately 921k-dot, 7.6cm/3.0-inch, wide-viewing-angle TFT LCD monitor. The monitor comes with anti-reflection coating, brightness adjustment, Clear Colour Display, and a RGBW system that ensures clear visibility even under sunlight.

The P600 also offers four exposure modes (P, S, A and M) and a user-setting mode (U) along with the new multiple exposure shooting function that allows the creation of a unique image by overlaying up to three images. The camera’s special effects include the painting effect, and new filter effects such as Photo Illustration, Soft Portrait and Portrait (with monochrome background) have also been added.
