Nikon Coolpix B600 is bridge to big zoom photography

Nikon B600

As well as launching the Coolpix A1000 earlier today, Nikon has also unveiled the B600 – a new addition to its range of bridge cameras.

The 16-megapixel B600 offers a big 60x optical zoom lens, with an effective focal length of 24–1440mm. That's enough telephoto power for serious close-ups of the blood moon this weekend for instance - or for shots of distant birds. As is the style with bridge cameras, there is a chunky grip to keep things steady – but at the far end of the zoom range you will need some extra support from a tripod, say.
