Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
First, what lens are you using on your P600 Nikon camera, please?

60x wide optical zoom ed vr
4.3-258mm 1:3.3-6.5
Built in lens
Camera and Video Technician: Russell H., Service Tech replied 8 months ago

I see. Well, for close-up photography at short ranges of several inches, Macro Mode is needed. Also often a Macro lens.

I'm not sure that your camera has a Macro Mode... if you know that it does, there is the essence of the answer to your question: put the camera into Macro Mode, and you will be able to focus close-in and get good-enough pictures.

If you don't know that it does, or don't know how to switch to Macro Mode, let me know, and I will instruct you.

Not sure if it has macro mode
Camera and Video Technician: Russell H., Service Tech replied 8 months ago

OK, it seems that it does, that a Nikon p600 camera does have macro mode. Just a minute and I will explain how to choose Macro Mode for what used to be called close-up photography.

Camera and Video Technician: Russell H., Service Tech replied 8 months ago

Macro mode is indeed on this camera model. You choose the 'flower' icon, next to the 'AF' or 'mountains' modes.

If it doesn't have a dial with that 'flower' icon on it, then that will be found in the camera's menus...

Camera and Video Technician: Russell H., Service Tech replied 8 months ago

OK, here's exactly how to set Macro focus mode:

Press the bottom of the multi-selector, next to the flower icon there.

On the screen, scroll down once to select the flower icon on the screen, then press OK.

- Does this answer your question? there is another setting that is not so necessary but might be helpful...

Camera and Video Technician: Russell H., Service Tech replied 8 months ago

Actually, that's about it - you might select 'Scene - Food' but it wouldn't necessarily be ideal for dental photography.

- Are you willing to rate my work and my answer? or would you rather try my instructions first, and see how it goes?
