The Nikon Coolpix P600's built-in lens features 60X zoom and vibration reduction for crisp long-distance photos.
Many cameras can bring your subject 3X closer, or 10X closer, but 60X closer? That's the high level of zoom the Nikon Coolpix P600 brings to the party. For those times when a colorful bird lands high in a nearby tree, or your seats put you on one end of the field, far from half of the action, this camera can snap colorful, detailed images even at a distance. Built-in vibration reduction helps you keep the image steady even when the lens is at full zoom.
The Wi-Fi® built into the Coolpix P600 is your doorway to instant sharing. Take sharp, clear photos and wirelessly send them to your compatible smartphone or tablet. Then you can text them, email them or upload to your favorite social networking site. You can even use your smartphone or tablet as a remote control for the Coolpix P600, making it perfect for self-portraits and group shots that actually include you.
Sometimes you want to freeze the action in a still photo, but sometimes it's nice to watch it flow in living color. When you're ready to make movies, the Coolpix P600 can shoot full HD moving images that are better than any smartphone can manage, and equal to most camcorders. Video can be uploaded and shared via Wi-Fi in the same way as still photos, allowing you to pass along game footage or baby's first steps, even to distant relatives.
At first, you may want to stick with the camera's preprogrammed shooting modes that automatically adjust to your environment. As you become more familiar with your camera, you'll likely want to take more direct control over the camera's settings. The dial on top of the P600 lets you switch easily between preset scene modes and manual control. It's ready to grow with you.
From baby's first steps, to that dream vacation in the islands, these cameras make it easy to capture life's greatest hits. Today's cameras have helpful automatic features, like face detection and scene recognition that make shooting more foolproof than ever. And they all have plenty of megapixels for detailed photos that stay sharp, even when you enlarge and print them.
Excelente producto, me encanta el zoom y el tamaño es cómodo. Todavía estoy aprendiendo a utilizar las funciones ya que hacen solo 2 semanas que la tengo. Pero hasta el momento he tomado fotos preciosas. Lo único en que no es muy bueno es el alcance del flash en las fotos de noche o en interiores, (a veces las fotos quedan mejor sin flash). Y es difícil conectarse a internet, hasta el momento no lo he podido hacer. Llegó bien rápido, justo la fecha que me indicaron.
Excellent product, I love its zoom capability and it's a very comfortable size. It arrived really quickly, exactly on the day I was told it would. I'm still learning to use all the features as I've only had it for 2 weeks, but up to now, I've had some really beautiful pictures. The only issue I've had is the flash, which doesn't work very well in the dark or in interior spaces - sometimes the photos look better without using the flash. It's difficult to connect to the internet, and I haven't been able to do so yet.
Pros: El zoom es excelente, tamaño cómodo para cargar, buena resolución. Excellent zoom, comfortable size to carry around, good resolution
Cons: Flash no tiene mucho alcance, no he logrado conectividad al internet a través del wifi Flash doesn't extend very far, I still haven't been able to connect to WiFiCrutchfield response on January 12, 2015 Translation provided by Crutchfield's Spanish Sales & Support team.

in general this camera works "as advertised". It has lots of features (as do most cameras these days). The feature I was most interested in is the 60x zoom. it does work; however pictures can be blurry. it takes some practice to get it to focus on the place you want. the camera is very fast
Pros: fast, good zoom, many features
Cons: 60x zoom can be blurry and it takes a while to zoom back out to normal. "quick user guide", which is good, is provided, but "reference guide" with more details must be downloaded. wifi only connects to certain devices i.e. it is not general enough to upload to photo sites
Great camera , THE ZOOM IS GREAT. The quality and the options are outstanding.
Pros: clear pictures, long lasting battery, great picture quality at night also, The lcd screen that rotates is amazing.
Cons: not full flash, shadow when flash is on. Auto focus when zooming need to be a bit steady

3" Vari-angle LCD Monitor: The Nikon Coolpix P600 has a 3" high resolution LCD monitor featuring approximately 921,000 dots, an anti-reflection coating and a six-level brightness adjustment. The LCD monitor has approximately 100% horizontal and vertical coverage in both shooting and playback modes. The Vari-angle display swivels out and rotates 270° for high- and low-angle shots.
Electronic Viewfinder: In addition to the 3" LCD monitor, the camera has a 0.2" Electronic Viewfinder with approximately 201,000 dots, and approximately 100% horizontal and vertical coverage in both shooting and playback modes. The EVF has a diopter adjustment to allow you to set the image to your eyesight.
Image Sensor: The Coolpix P600 features a 1/2.3" CMOS image sensor with approximately 16.76-million total pixels and 16.1-million effective pixels.
Recording Media: Images can be recorded onto SD, SDHC, or SDXC Memory cards. When an SD Memory card is inserted in the camera, the images are automatically recorded onto the card. When no card is inserted, the images automatically record to the 56 MB internal memory. The camera can support 2 GB SD cards, SDHC cards from 4 GB to 32 GB, and SDXC cards of up to 128 GB. In addition, the camera is compatible with Eye-Fi cards.
Optics: The Coolpix P600 digital camera uses a 60x Zoom-NIKKOR glass lens for superb image quality. Every aspect of the lens manufacturing process is controlled by Nikon. The Zoom-NIKKOR lens is designed for the specific camera and image sensor combination. The lens has a focal length of 4.3-258mm that is equivalent to a 24-1440mm lens in 35mm photography. There are two stages of digital zoom: Dynamic Fine Zoom and full Digital Zoom. Dynamic Fine Zoom is approximately 2x the optical zoom value (up to 120x total) with little or no degradation of image quality. Beyond 2x, the full digital zoom enlarges the image up to 4x the optical zoom (up to 240x), but with a noticeable reduction in image quality.
Zoom Memory: When the zoom control is operated, the zoom stops at the following preset focal lengths: 24mm, 28mm, 35mm, 50mm, 85mm, 105mm, 135mm, 200mm, 300mm, 400mm, 500mm, 600mm, 800mm, 1000mm, 1200mm, and 1440mm. The function is similar to having 16 different prime lenses on a D-SLR camera. You can select any or all of the presets in the menu. (Zoom Memory is only available in the P, S, A, M, or U shooting modes.) You can set the camera to a specific Startup Zoom Position in advance (24mm, 28mm, 35mm, 50mm, 85mm, 105mm, or 135mm).
Vibration Reduction: The Coolpix P600 offers Vibration Reduction (VR) image stabilization to reduce blurring caused by camera shake when shooting. The camera automatically detects the panning direction (horizontally or vertically) and compensates for camera shake by shifting the lens. You can select from Normal or Active VR Modes.
Motion Detection: Motion Detection automatically detects moving subjects and adjusts the shutter speed and the ISO setting to compensate for camera shake and subject movement.
Built-in Wi-Fi: The Coolpix P600 has built-in Wi-Fi, which allows you to connect the camera with your smartphone or tablet. Through the wireless connection (IEEE 802.11b/g/n), you can automatically load photos and videos to your device as you take them, use your smart device to remotely take photos on the camera, or download existing pictures from the camera's memory card to your device. Once you have downloaded images to your smartphone, you can share them via email, texts, or social networking sites.
Note: The smart device must have the Wireless Mobile Utility application, available for devices running Android 2.3 or later (smartphones), Android 3.0 or later (tablets), or iOS 6.0 or later (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch).
File Formats: The Coolpix P600 records still images in JPEG format. HD and SD movies are recorded in MOV format (Video: MPEG-4 AVC/H.264, Audio: LPCM stereo). You can choose Fine (1:4) or Normal (1:8) compression ratios for still images. There are nine still image size options and nine movie options:
Shooting Modes: Using the top-mounted Mode Dial, you can choose one of the following shooting modes:
Continuous Shooting: In the P, S, A, M, or U shooting modes, you can select in the menu from the following single or continuous shooting options:
Self-timer: The camera is equipped with a 10 second and 2 second timer for self-portraits. In addition, the camera can use face detection to detect human faces, and automatically release the shutter when a smile is detected (Smile Timer).
AF Area Mode: You can select between the following AF Area Modes to determine how the camera selects the focus area for Auto Focus:
Focus Modes: You can choose a focus mode according to the subject and composition. The choices include:
Focus Lock: The Focus Lock feature is used to focus on off-centered subjects in the frame while shooting in Center AF mode.
AF-Assist Illuminator: If lighting is poor, the AF-assist illuminator may light to assist the focus operation when the shutter-release button is pressed halfway. The illuminator has a range of about 9'-10" at the maximum wide-angle and 11' at maximum telephoto positions. You can turn this function on or off.
Blink Warning Function: The Blink Warning function is available when you are shooting in Face Priority mode. When the camera detects that one or more human subjects may have blinked, the blink warning screen is displayed. The subject is framed by a yellow border, allowing you to check the picture and decide whether or not to take another picture.
Exposure Compensation: You can alter the exposure from the value suggested by the camera, making pictures brighter or darker. You can adjust the exposure from -2.0 to +2.0 EV in 1/3 EV steps, using a rotary dial on the top of the camera.
Exposure Bracketing: The exposure can be changed automatically during continuous shooting. With Exposure Bracketing, the camera takes three images, one at the set exposure, one overexposed, and one underexposed. You can set the compensation interval to +/-0.3, +/-0.7, or +/-1.0
ISO Settings: Sensitivity is the measure of how quickly the camera reacts to light. The higher the sensitivity, the less light needed to make an exposure. The camera features the following ISO settings:
White Balance: You can set the White Balance to Auto Normal, Auto Warm, Daylight, Incandescent, Fluorescent (FL1 to FL3), Cloudy, or Flash. You can also choose Preset Manual and use a neutral-colored object as a reference to set the white balance under unusual lighting conditions.
Color Temperature: You can choose one of 11 different Color Temperature settings (instead of a preset White Balance setting): Sodium-vapor lamps (2700K), Incandescent/Warm-white fluorescent (3700K), Cool-white fluorescent (4200K), Day white fluorescent (5000K), Direct sunlight (5200K), Flash (5400K), Cloudy (6000K), Daylight fluorescent (6500K), High temp. Mercury-vapor (7200K), and Shade (8000K).
Built-in Flash: The Coolpix P600 has a built-in pop-up flash with a range of 1'-8" to 24' (Wide angle) and 5' to 13' (Telephoto). You can choose from the following flash modes:
In-Camera Red-Eye Fix: If the camera detects red-eye after the pre-flash has fired, advanced red-eye reduction processing is used to further reduce red-eye, slightly increasing the time required before the next picture can be taken.
AF Modes: When shooting still images or movies you can choose between two auto-focus modes:
Voice Recording: Audio voice memos for pictures can be recorded over the camera's built-in microphone and played back over the unit's built-in speaker. Memos can be up to 20 seconds in length. Memos are saved as WAV files.
Slide Show Playback: View pictures in the internal memory or on the memory card in an automatic slide show with 2, 3, 5, or 10 seconds between pictures. If desired, you can loop the slideshow so it will continuously play. Maximum slide show duration is 30 minutes without operation.
Thumbnail Playback: During playback, you can view multiple thumbnail images (4, 9, 16, or 72) at a time. While these "contact sheets" are displayed, you can use the multi-selector to highlight individual pictures. Highlighted pictures can be deleted, if desired.
Calendar Display: This feature displays a calendar allowing you to select and view pictures taken on the same date.
Playback Zoom: During playback, you can enlarge a still image up to 10x. Once the image is zoomed, you can use the multi-selector to scroll around to non-visible portions of the image. You can record a new picture of the cropped image by pressing the shutter button.
Rotate Image: Recorded pictures can be rotated 90-degrees clockwise or counter-clockwise on the unit's LCD screen.
Editing Picture: You can use the Coolpix P600 to edit recorded pictures in-camera and store them as separate files. You can choose from the following editing functions:
Multi-Language Menu: You can choose from 36 different menu display languages including English, Spanish and French.
