      News

    Two new Nikon Coolpix A1000 and B600 cameras, which offer 35× and 60× zooms, can be treats for the amateurs of big zooms. Both cameras have been equipped with the CMOS BSI 16MP sensors.

     

    A1000 is a bit more versatile model from the two Nikon cameras described today. It enables both recording wide-angle shots and big-zoom shots. The camera has been equipped with the Nikkor lens, which offers 35× optical zoom with the equivalent of 24 - 840mm and the variable light of f/3.4 - 6.9. At the back of the housing, there is a useful zoom lever. There is also a fast lens retract button.

    1). Nikon A1000

     

    If the 35× zoom is not enough for someone, we also have the Dynamic Fine Zoom function at our disposal, thanks to which we will achieve the equivalent of the focal length of 1680mm. During photographing, we will use the optical vibration reduction and during recording films we will use a hybrid stabilization system.

    2). Nikon A1000

     

    The camera’s CMOS 1/2.3" (4,8 × 3,6mm) sensor has the resolution of 16MP and it ensures the ISO sensitivity of 6400. Taken photographs will be saved in the RAW format. The films can be recorded in 4K UHD (with the speed of 30f/s) or in Full HD (with the speed of 60f/s). A function which is worth mentioning is "D-Lighting", thanks to which the camera will be able to extract more details in the brightest and darkest portions of the frame.  

     

    Coolpix A1000 is equipped with the electronic viewfinder with the resolution of 1166px and the 3" touch LCD screen with the resolution of 1,036,000px – the screen can be rotated vertically. The ergonomics of the camera is ensured by the function button, the PASM knob and the knob responsible for exposition compensation.  The connection with mobile devices is facilitated by the SnapBridge application. The camera’s body has the dimensions of 114,2 × 71,7 × 40,5mm and it weighs 330g.

     

     

     

    The second from the cameras described today is a bit more radical offer. The primary trait of Nikon Coolpix B600 is its range since the camera offers 60× zoom with the functional equivalent of 24 - 1440mm. With the use of the Dynamic Fine Zoom function, this value can be increased to 2880mm.

    3). Nikon B600

     

    The heart of the camera is the CMOS BSI sensor with the resolution of 16MP, which is supported by the EXPEED image processor. The photographs in the RAW format can be taken with the sensitivity up to ISO 6400. B600 offers 19 thematic programs and the creative mode which consists of 36 different color effects.

    4). Nikon B600

     

    Nikon Coolpix B600 does not have some important functions which we will find in A1000 – the camera does not have a viewfinder, the LCD (3", 921,000px) screen is mounted permanently and the films recorded with the use of B600 will have the maximum resolution of Full HD/30p. The camera has been equipped with a quick AF, the PASM knob and the Snap-back function, useful in the work with the camera of big zoom range. B600 is compatible with the SnapBridge software, its dimensions are 121,6 × 81,5 × 99,2mm and it weighs 500g.

     

    The cameras are to appear on sale this month and they are not available in USA.

      Nikon Coolpix B600 is a camera designed having in mind the users who need huge zooms and, at the same time, do not want to spend much money on a device which would ensure it. B600 is equipped with the 60× optical zoom with the equivalent of 24-1440mm focal length for full frame, which can be extended to 2880mm thanks to the Dynamic Fine Zoom option. Due to its compact size, the camera will work perfectly both during a walk with the family through the city and during the amateur photography of nature in the mountains.

      DESCRIPTION
      The strongest side of Nikon B600 is its optical system. A compact body equipped with the 60× optical zoom lens that covers a wide range of focal lengths from wide-angle to super-telephoto. The lens with the focal length of 24-1440mm enables 64× zoom which can be electronically extended to 120×, which is the equivalent of the focal length of 2880 for full frame. Coolpix B600 is also equipped with the Macro function which allows users to enjoy macro photography with shooting as close as 1 cm (0.4 in.) to the lens at the maximum wide-angle position.

      Nikon Coolpix B600 is equipped with the CMOS sensor created in the BSI technology, which offers 16MP and is stabilized. The sensor is capable of reducing the effects of camera shake to the same degree as would a 3.0-stop.

      The sensor is supported by the EXPEED high-performance image-processing engine. Such a duet ensures photography in the RAW format with the maximum ISO sensitivity of 125-6400 and the speed of 7f/s.

      The camera records videos in 1920 × 1080 @ 60 with the maximum length of 29min with stereo sound.

      The Coopix B600 is equipped with a variety of functions that enable diverse power of expression, including 19 scene modes, as well as Creative mode with its 36 effects offering the optimal combinations of exposure, contrast, and color reproduction, making it easy for users to express themselves as intended.

      At our disposal, we also have the functions of wireless connection with smartphones, thanks to the use of SnapBridge, which enables automatic wireless sending of photographs as well as remote shutter release and the preview of what we see on the camera’s screen.  

      The body of Nikon B600 is fully made of plastic and it does not have sealings. The camera is also not equipped with the electronic viewfinder and a rotating screen.

      As for its optical properties, Nikon Coolpix B600 is a very compact camera. With the dimensions of 122 × 82 × 99mm (4.8 × 3.23 × 3.9"),  it weighs only 500g (1.10lb)

      Nikon Coolpix B600 can be compared with two other models. The first one is Nikon Coolpix B500, which is the predecessor of the above model and which is still available on the market. The second one is Nikon Coolpix B700, which, despite the fact that it is better equipped and it has been on the market for some time, is available for a similar price.
