Nikon announces high performance COOLPIX P600 and super-zoom COOLPIX P530 cameras (07.02.2014)


Nikon Europe today announces two new ultra-high zoom cameras in its COOLPIX line up: the COOLPIX P600 with an astounding 60x optical zoom lens and the ultra-precision Nikon COOLPIX P530 with a 42x optical zoom lens. Offering incredible balance between small body size and high zoom power, both cameras feature a back-illuminated 16-megapixel CMOS sensor anda built-in electronic viewfinder, enabling creative photographers to capture finely detailed, beautifully sharp images on the move, even in low light.

The Nikon COOLPIX P600 – Sophisticated performance for heightened creativity

Created for those who love capturing every detail, the portable yet powerful COOLPIX P600 combines exquisite precision and a super-zoom lens with a beautifully designed body.

Its 60x optical zoom NIKKOR lens, extendable to 120x with Dynamic Fine Zoom*, covers a 24-1440mm range and has Super ED glass for exceptional image quality. In perfect complement to the camera’s extreme close-up capabilities, the COOLPIX P600 features a large vari-angle high resolution (921k dots) LCD screen with bright RGBW technology to help artistic photographers get a unique view and frame shots more creatively. Meanwhile, Advanced Lens Shift Vibration Reduction (VR) ensures clear images even at 60x telephoto and Active mode minimizes camera shake when walking or shooting from a moving vehicle, so steady shots and movies are ensured, even in the hands of the most dynamic action photographers. 

New features like focus peaking emphasise the edges of a focused area so you can easily view them on-screen and adjust the intensity for finer detail. Meanwhile the camera’s smart AF algorithm and multitask processor ensure you can always catch key moments in perfect focus with significantly reduced waiting time between shots. Built-in Wi-Fi makes it easy to share all your adventures, even while you are still having them, thanks to the ability to send pictures straight from the camera to your smart device, for instant uploading via email or social media networks**.

Another advantage for those who like a portable camera to explore the great outdoors is continuous shooting up to 7 fps, which is ideal for photographers trying to capture a fast-moving animal or a speeding car. For budding filmmakers, the COOLPIX P600 records Full HD 1080/60i movies with stereo sound at the touch of a button, allowing you to document a high quality scene from any angle. The Customisable Function Button mode gives rapid access to settings like ISO sensitivity, white balance or exposure metering for full creative control.

Nicolas Gillet, Product Manager for Consumer Products at Nikon Europe, comments: “The COOLPIX P600 balances superb image quality and astounding zoom with a high resolution NIKKOR lens for wonderfully sharp results. This multi-purpose camera’s capabilities make it a leading product in the COOLPIX range, with useful features like one-touch Full HD movie making, focus peaking, new smart AF algorithm and a vari-angle screen to get the best results in both your photography and videography.”

The COOLPIX P600 will be available at a RRP of 500 EUR.

The Nikon COOLPIX P530 – Precision and performance at your fingertips

Your ideal companion to capture those picture perfect moments, the COOLPIX P530 ensures that even distant subjects are easily captured in clear, sharp, fine detail with its incredible 42x optical zoom, extendable to 84x with Dynamic Fine Zoom* and back-illuminated 16 MP CMOS sensor.

Never miss a trick with Full HD movies only a button away, and thanks to advanced Lens Shift VR (vibration reduction) countering camera shake you can shoot smooth movies and crisp images with confidence, even if you are in a moving vehicle.

Enjoy wide-angle viewing on the large 7.5-cm/3.0-in 921-k LCD screen, while its anti-reflection coating and brightness adjustment ensures you can clearly see what you are shooting, even in bright sunlight. However, you can easily switch to the Electronic Viewfinder for more precise framing or to suit your own shooting preference.

For challenging shots, like distant wildlife or high-contrast set ups, the COOLPIX P530 offers scene modes tailored for high-zoom settings, helping you achieve the shot you are aiming for.

Nicolas Gillet, Product Manager for Consumer Products at Nikon Europe, comments: “Ergonomically designed, powerful and compact, the COOLPIX P530 packs a punch with its super-zoom function and built-in electronic viewfinder to capture images in incredible detail. An essential addition to any photography enthusiast’s collection, this camera captures fast-moving action to crisp and clear shots of distant subjects, delivering performance and precision with every click.”

The COOLPIX P530 will be available at a RRP of 385 EUR.
