GENERAL

The Coolpix B600 was introduced by Nikon in January 2019. It belongs to the Superzooms category.

Nikon is well-known and shouldn't require further introduction, please see our manufacturer's page for more digital cameras by Nikon.

SENSOR

The Coolpix B600 features a CMOS sensor in Compact size that has an area of approximately 6 x 5 mm² (0.24" x 0.18").

The 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.

LENS

The Coolpix B600 has a built-in lens that can not be changed.

VIEWFINDER

The Coolpix B600 does not come with a built-in viewfinder. The camera's display is used to compose the photo. That can be cumbersome in broad daylight.

SHUTTER

The Coolpix B600's shutter speeds range from 1/4000s to 25s.

Max. shutter speed1/4000s
Min. shutter speed25s
SENSITIVITY

The Coolpix B600's sensitivity goes from 125 ISO und 6400 ISO, a very useful and practical range.

Min. sensitivity125 ISO
Max. sensitivity6400 ISO
METERING

The Coolpix B600 supports all common metering modes.

The Nikon will also allow spot metering, a must for challenging motives.

AUTO FOCUS

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.

FLASH

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.

DISPLAY
Coolpix B600 display

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.

VIDEO

When recording videos with the Coolpix B600, the highest supported resolution is 1920 x 1080 pixel, in other words Full HD Video. 4K videos are not supported by the Nikon.

A connector for an external microphone is missing from the Nikon. A built-in mike will usually record everything in front and to the sides of the camera which is not always what the film maker wants. Internal microphones also tend to record camera sounds like focus beeps.

MISC. FUNCTIONS

Let's have a look at some other features of the Nikon Coolpix B600:

The Coolpix B600 doesn't have a built-in GPS receiver. If you want to add coordinates to your photos, you'll have to do so in 3rd party software like Adobe Lightroom. However, with Wifi built-in, location data can also be added via a connected smartphone.

The Coolpix B600 features a built-in stabilizer. With a 60x zoom a must-have.

If you are into HDRs, the camera won't create those automatically. You will have to manually create image sequences and later assemble those sequnces in third-party software.

The Coolpix B600 is not environmentally sealed against dust and moisture; keep that in mind in the rain and on the beach.

BATTERY

The Nikon Coolpix B600 works with a EN-EL12 battery. The battery lifetime is an average 280 shots. That's on the lower side of things for a full day, consider a spare battery for the Coolpix B600.

The battery can be charged over USB while in camera. Very useful, especially on vacation when most people bring a USB charger for their smartphone anyway.
