  • image

    Nikon introduces two new COOLPIX super-zooms packed with powerful features and boasting NIKKOR optics for stunning images. From distant views to city streets, these lightweight, easy-to-use compact cameras deliver sharp wide-angle to super-telephoto images—even in low light.

    The COOLPIX B600 bridge camera packs a 60x optical zoom, a large monitor, and a sturdy grip. Whether it’s a family trip to the park or a city break, this camera is a brilliant all-rounder. It shoots Full HD video in stereo sound. A host of in-camera creative modes make it simple to add an artistic touch to photos or movies.

    Yoshihiro Katakami, Product Manager at Nikon UK, comments: “Both of these cameras are fantastic options for users who want to explore their creative side. The wide-angle to super-telephoto zoom range frees users to shoot almost any subject. Nikon’s 16 MP back-side illuminated CMOS sensor and Vibration Reduction help deliver superb results in low light. And SnapBridge makes it easy to share the best shots, or use a smart device to shoot remotely.”

    The compact COOLPIX B600 is equipped with a 60x optical zoom NIKKOR lens that covers an impressive focal length range equivalent to 24-1440mm^1^, enabling users to easily capture events from wide-angle landscapes to super-telephoto close-ups of their favorite ballplayer sliding into home plate.
