MISSISSAUGA, ON – Nikon Canada Inc. is pleased to announce the release of the COOLPIX B600, a compact digital camera equipped with a high-performance 60× optical zoom NIKKOR lens.
The COOLPIX B600 employs a 60× optical zoom NIKKOR lens that covers a range of equivalent focal lengths beginning at wide-angle 24mm*1 and ending at super-telephoto 1440mm*1 (Dynamic Fine Zoom further expands the zoom ratio to 120×*2), making it possible for users to enjoy super-telephoto photography without compromising sharp and clear resolution.
The camera has an effective pixel count of 16.0 megapixels and supports a maximum sensitivity of ISO 6400. Its combination of backside illumination CMOS sensor and EXPEED high-performance image-processing engine captures superior still and video quality, even at high sensitivities. The COOLPIX B600 is also equipped with a variety of functions that enable a diverse power of expression, including 19 scene modes, as well as a Creative mode that offers a total of 36 different effects.
The camera also features functions that make it easier to use as a high-power zoom model and ensure increased operability, such as a Snap-back zoom button and Side zoom control, as well as a shooting mode dial that enables immediate switching between frequently used shooting modes. It is also SnapBridge compatible, so high-quality images can be automatically downloaded to a smart device*3 for easy sharing.
