See all images of the Nikon Coolpix B600
|The Coolpix B600 was presented by Nikon in January 2019. It is a Superzoom Digital Camera.|
In additional Coolpix B600 has a Compact CMOS sensor with size of 6 x 5 mm² (0.24″ x 0.18″).
Also Coolpix B600’s image sensor has an effective resolution of around 16 megapixel. The resolution is somewhat below average but will be sufficient for most purposes. Photos with this resolution can easily be printed to A3 size.
The Nikon does not support recording RAW images. RAW images are stored as they come from the sensor, without any in-camera processing or sharpening. Converting to JPEG or other formats takes place on the computeand involves one extra processing step but will almost always result in superior image quality.

The Nikon allows spot exposure for the difficult occasion.
|Auto Focus Properties|
The Coolpix B600’s auto focus processor uses 1 AF points (or sensors). A basic rule of thumb says that the more AF points you have, the better. More AF points mean a better chance to have a point at the location of interest in a scene, a big plus in challenging situations (e.g. in low light).
The Nikon doesn’t support manual focussing. That can be an issue if the auto focus has problems with your subject or lighting.
The Coolpix B600 features a built-in flash with a range of up to 7m (23 ft.). That range will work for most situations.
A hotshoe is missing from the Nikon.
The Coolpix B600 features a monitor with a diagonal of 75.00mm (3.0 in.) and a resolution of c. 0.92 megapixel. That’s about average.
Unfortunately, the Coolpix B600’s monitor is not articulated. That can make it tricky to frame your subject in some situations, e.g. when taking selfies.
The Coolpix B600 does not feature a touch screen.
