Nikon Coolpix P600 Review

29 May 2014
  • Conclusion: We never did get those hummingbirds, but we did get a number of solid photos. Overall, the Coolpix P600 is a decent mega-zoom but it definitely has some issues that we don’t want to beat to death. Although we love that 1,440mm setting, at $499, it’s hard to fully recommend.
  • Pros: 60x mega-zoom (24-1440mm), Good photos of static subjects, Superior VR system
  • Cons: Poor EVF, no eye sensor, Need a hard edge to focus quickly, Not as responsive as stated

Digital Camera Review
17 April 2014
  • Summary: Nikon’s Coolpix P600 is, at heart, a Nikon Coolpix P520 with a new 60X zoom. The new zoom seems better in most areas than the 42X zoom that graced the P520. I was surprised at just how sharp my telephoto images were, especially when I compared them to images from the similar (50x zoom) Canon...
  • Pros: Excellent image quality, 60X zoom, Easy to use
  • Cons: Well above average barrel distortion, Video capture lag, Poorly designed exposure compensation function
