High-power Zooms Allow Users to Get Closer Than Ever Before
Pushing NIKKOR optics to new heights, the COOLPIX P600 boasts a 60x optical zoom from a wide-angle 24mm to an astonishing 1440mm (35mm equivalent) range, and can reach even further using Dynamic Fine Zoom. Lens Shift Vibration Reduction (VR) image stabilization helps reduce the effects of camera shake, allowing users to capture clear photos from incredible distances. With built-in Wi-Fi, users can easily share amazing photos with family and friends by transferring images to a compatible smartphone or tablet and uploading them to their social networks.
In addition to photographing from a distance, the P600 lets the user compose the ideal photo or video from any angle by using a high-resolution (921k-dot) 3.0-inch (7.5cm) Vari-angle LCD display. Users can shoot above a crowd at a sold-out concert or go low to capture a baby’s first steps. With a 16.1-megapixel backside illuminated (BSI) CMOS sensor, the P600 is capable of capturing detailed photos and Full HD (1080/60i) videos even in challenging lighting conditions. The COOLPIX P600 also sports advanced features that appeal to serious photographers including full manual controls (P, S, A, M), an electronic viewfinder and improved battery life that allows up to 330 shots per charge. What’s more, the new Moon and Bird Watching Scene modes make the most of the extreme zoom range.
The COOLPIX P530 demonstrates the capabilities of NIKKOR optics through an astounding 42x optical zoom with a 24-1000mm range (35mm equivalent) and Dynamic Fine Zoom that gets the user even closer. This long-zoom allows users the ability to capture subjects at otherwise unreachable distances in clear detail thanks to Lens Shift VR image stabilization, which helps minimize camera shake. At the core of the P530 is a 16.1-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor that delivers beautiful photos and Full HD (1080/60i) videos. The P530 includes full manual controls (P, S, A, M) that help users develop their photography skills and offer more control over each shot. The 3.0-inch (7.5cm) LCD monitor and a built-in electronic viewfinder make it easy to frame stunning photos and HD videos. Users can share their creations with friends and family with the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter (sold separately).
With a 30x optical zoom (25-750mm, 35mm equivalent) and 60x Dynamic Fine Zoom packed into a compact body, the new COOLPIX S9700 puts powerful NIKKOR optics into the hands of users who need high-quality images from a camera small enough to fit in their pockets.
