Nikon Coolpix P610 Review

 

The Nikon Coolpix P610 is a bridge camera with a 60x optical zoom range, giving it the status of an ‘ultrazoom' camera. It replaces the Coolpix P600, though the P610 retains the same optically stabilised lens and also inherits its predecessor's...

At £340/$500, the Nikon Coolpix P610 is pretty pricey for a camera that doesn’t offer any better image quality than a well-sorted compact camera. However, you do get an awful lot of bang for your buck.

Nikon P610 Review

 

Nikon came out on top in our 2014 Superzoom Shootout with their 60x Nikon P600, and this year they're introducing the updated Nikon P610. Remaining largely unchanged, however, Nikon seems firmly in the "if it isn't broken, don't fix it" camp. However,...

Available from March 2015, the Nikon Coolpix P610 ships in two body colors -- black or red -- and list pricing is set at around US$500.

The Best Superzoom Camera

 

After spending several days shooting with four top contenders, we found the Nikon Coolpix P610 is the best superzoom camera. It's the only model that combines a 60x zoom range, built-in GPS support, and an eye sensor for quick switching between the...

Nikon Coolpix P610 review

 

A 60x optical zoom and full manual control make this a solidly specced bridge camera

60x optical zoom ; Inbuilt Wi-Fi ; Articulating screen

No raw format shooting ; Screen not touch sensitive

A well performing camera that produces good quality images, especially in favourable conditions. If you're looking for a long zoom or holiday camera, Nikon has produced a good contender. But if you want raw shooting, look at the Canon SX60 instead.

Nikon P610 review

 

Solid rather than exceptional, but the Nikon P610's big zoom and competitive price meet a need

There’s not much to criticise about the P610, but its lens and sensor combination simply don’t capture enough light to give the levels of rich, clean detail offered by the Panasonic FZ1000 . Then again, it doesn’t cost £600. £265 is an extremely...

Nikon fine-tunes Coolpix megazoom lineup for 2015

 

Nikon stays off the more-megapixels-and-longer-zooms road usually traveled to attract buyers to its newest Coolpix bridge and travel zoom cameras and instead goes down a path of subtle enhancements.

The Coolpix S9900, S7000 and S6900 will be available in March (the S6900 is available now in the UK for £199.99). The S9900 is priced at $349.95, while the S7000 and S6900 will sell for $279.95 and $229.95, respectively. Pricing in the UK and Australia...
