Common Tailorbird with a spider meal
This image is shot, handheld, at 1/25s with the lens extended to 600mm on the Nikon Coolpix P610. The stabilization power of this camera is a highlight feature. My review of the camera here: http://bit.ly/1cSOP6B
just in case you missed my last post :)

Street Candid
The great thing about a camera with huge reach and inconspicuous dimensions is that subjects 100 meters away have no clue what's going on, especially if you shoot from the hip with the articulated screen.

The Nikon Coolpix P610 - a fun camera!
The zooming range of these monster bridge cameras is incredible. This one ranges between 24mm to 1440mm. The Coolpix P900 goes to an astounding 2000mm, but it is a fairly large camera - not as handy as the P610.
The camera should be the go to tool when you want to document a bird from close up and also capture its habitat/environment. That could a great new genre of bird photography! #nikonp610   #coolpix_P610

Starting a new collection with images from the Nikon Coolpix P610. Hopefully, it will be of some reference value to those who are interested in the bridge camera.

Would love your comments and feedback :) #coolpix_p610   #nikonp610  
Introduction The Coolpix P610 is my first SLR-like (bridge) camera. Over the years I have moved from medium format twin-reflex film cameras, to SLRs, and was one of the early adopters of DSLR technology. In between I have u...
