    Default Nikon Coolpix P600 Review Discussion

    Nikon's Coolpix P600 takes the foundation built by last year's P520 and adds a mammoth 60x zoom to it. Some barrel distortion and video capture lag hinder what is an otherwise excellent P&S digital camera.

    Good image quality but the wide-angle distortion is a problem. Though, to be fair, I've noticed wide-angle barrel distortion in every camera I've used with a minimum focal length of under 28mm. I've also experienced video lag on many cameras over the past few years. Is there some technical reason why video lag is so common?

    Hi,
    Great review. I just wondering if the Nikon p600 had any focus issues. I have read on some reviews the following issue - Its slow to focus in low light or at full zoom and that you need a tripod for any full zoom shots otherwise you will get blurry shots. Also they noted if you do continuous shoot for about 8 shots in takes 20-30 sec before you can do further photos. Did you find any of those issues? also what was video quality like?
    I am choosing between the canon sx50 (or sx60 when it comes out) or Nikon p600 and wonder how they compare on image quality, focusing etc. I want to have a camera that I can use both for portraits, macro and some long distance shots. Is the distortion you noted worse with the Nikon or canon. Thanks for your help.
    Warm regards,
    Steve.

    If image quality is a priority, the Fuji X-S1 probably has the best image quality of any ultrazoom.
    Here are some sample images of the X-S1 compared to the Nikon P600 and the Canon SX50.
