Nikon’s latest COOLPIX digital compact camera promises upgraded user experience and image quality in a myriad of shooting situations
New Delhi: 17th January, 2019 – Everyday photographers and hobbyists alike can look forward to enhanced imaging experiences with the latest COOLPIX B600 digital compact camera release from Nikon India Pvt. Ltd. today. The COOLPIX B600 is high-power-zoom model, delivering high quality still images and movies, superior operability, and versatility across various photography situations from wide-angle to telephoto shots at events and parties, outings, or family holidays.
“The latest addition to our ever-evolving product line-up exemplifies Nikon’s desire to provide an imaging experience that differs from the smart devices, amidst the widespread technological advances we see in consumer products today. Great for the everyday user looking to capture high-quality memories in both stills and videos, the COOLPIX B600 promise impressive capabilities suitable for use in any situation,” says Sajjan Kumar, Managing Director – Nikon India.
The COOLPIX B600 is equipped with a 60× optical zoom lens that covers an incredible range of focal length beginning at the wide-angle 24mm1 equivalent and extending to super-telephoto 1440mm equivalent (up to 120×2 zoom is possible when Dynamic Fine Zoom is enabled). With 19 options in the Scene mode, camera settings are optimised for the scene to capture a high-quality image. The extensive creative functions and multifunctional Full HD video capabilities also allow a wide range of imaging possibilities to be realised.
The B600 has superb operability making it easy to use anytime, anywhere. A highly accurate pre-focus function (Pre-AF) and a target finding AF automatically achieves sharp focus in zoom or low-lit shooting scenarios. Equipped with Vibration Reduction (VR) to reduce vibration equivalent up to a 3.0-stop3 increase in shutter speed for stills, and a 4-Axis Hybrid VR system for movies, users can achieve images and movies in dark situations or super-telephoto shooting with outstanding sharpness and clarity. Furthermore, in macro mode, the B600 is able to focus on subjects as close as approximately one centimeter (or 0.4") from the center of the front surface of the lens4.
When shooting fast-moving subjects or capturing an image while using super-telephoto zoom, subjects once lost can be recaptured instantly by using the snap-back zoom button, which reverts to its previous position when the button is released. Additionally, a side zoom control on the left-hand side of the B600 camera bodies ensure smooth zooming while holding on securely to the lens barrel – this frees up the right hand to be placed on the shutter release button to never miss a moment.
Compatibility with SnapBridge 2.5 also provides users with more efficient ways to manage their content and stay connected with automatic transfers of high-quality images to a smart device, and remote camera control from a smart device. These compact cameras further support a variety of optional accessories for a rich and diverse imaging expression.
• Documenting daily moments with an enhanced shooting experience: Getting up close and personal to capture a child in action at a soccer game or the must-see attraction on a family holiday has never been easier with the 60× optical zoom and 120× Dynamic Fine Zoom on the lightweight and compact B600. Documenting those memories can be done more easily with the camera’s super-telephoto capabilities, combined with the snap-back zoom button and side zoom control to ensure a shot is never missed. Its 16-megapixel resolution, dynamic range of up to ISO 6400 sensitivity and optical Vibration Reduction capabilities ensure picturesque perfection regardless of the light conditions.
• Unleashing creative possibilities with a variety of in-built functions: Perfect for all kinds of scenes, the B600’s 19 Scene modes ensure that photos and movies are always optimised. Scene modes can either be manually selected, or automatically detected by the camera just by framing the subject. The Multiple Exposure Lighten mode also allows light paths to be captured more easily by automatically compositing the brightest parts of two or more pictures. Always look your best with the Smart Portrait mode’s effects and Glamour Retouch functions. The Full HD multifunctional video capabilities also ensure memories are captured in footage and sound, and instant movie-editing function can be done on the spot during playback.
