Built on a custom application of Nikon's innovative EXPEED digital image processing concept and incorporating the precision optics of a NIKKOR lens, the COOLPIX S600 is a powerful photographic tool that offers the added pleasure of sophisticated design and go-anywhere, shoot-anytime fun.

The COOLPIX S600 teams 10 effective megapixels of sharp resolution with ultra-swift response, and maintains image clarity even at sensitivity settings as high as ISO 3200.

A 4x Zoom-NIKKOR lens featuring Nikon's optical lens shift VR image stabilization enhances compositional freedom with 28mm wide-angle capability (35mm format equivalent) and the range to ably cover everything from panoramic landscapes to close-up portraits.
