Maybe some of you out there are wondering what kind of camera’s I use when I go “out there”?  Well, this is one of them.  The Nikon Coolpix P600.  It looks just like the one you see above.  I bought this camera about 1.5 yrs. ago because I did some reading about it and thought that this would be a nice well designed camera to carry around instead of the heavy Nikon D7000 that I also use.


Over times that I have used this camera, I found that it does have a bit of a problem.  When I am “out there” and using the screen to view my shot before pressing the button and the sun is out and very bright, I have a hard time seeing what is in the frame.  The brightness of the sun hides what I want to see on the screen.  I have tried looking thru the view finder, but that’s hard to do because it is quite small.  It truly does extend out to 60X what you will normally see.  With the press of that button, it will extend out to anything up to 60X.  Comes in handy.


This is what it looks like from the back end.  The view screen comes out and turns around to make viewing easier to what you want.  Without going into a bunch of description of what else it will do, I find that this is a nice camera for the price.  The last Images on the Post I just made were taken with this camera.  I like it.  It does all kinds of stuff and it’s easy to carry around.  Will also fit on a Tripod/Monopod when needed.  There are 2 other things that Nikon has not put into this camera and that is a RAW format, and a plug in for a remote shutter trigger.  What I do is use the 12 sec. timer when on my Tripod.

I am 75 yrs. young and now retired. I worked in the Machinist Trade for 24 yrs. Served in the US Navy with a Tour of Duty in Vietnam. Being retired I do enjoy Photography with my Nikon and Pentax Camera's, snooping around in Historic and Abandoned places, using my Scroll Saw, Reading, Travel, riding a bicycle on the many Trails that are around my area, and what-ever else will interest me at the time. Come with me and see where I go, where I have been, and my Life surviving Retirement.
