LCD and Viewfinder
Nikon B600 has a Fixed Type 3" LCD screen with a resolution of 921k dots. Both the screen size and the screen resolution is up to the standards of this class.
B600 doesn't have a viewfinder and no option for external viewfinder. Lack of a viewfinder can be problematic especially under strong light where visibility of LCD screens goes down dramatically. If you need a DSLR-Like camera with a built-in viewfinder in a similar price range, consider Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 (Compare) or Fujifilm FinePix S1 (Compare). If the price is not an issue, take a look at our Top Rated Cameras with Viewfinders.

Battery Nikon B600 is powered by a proprietary battery which provides a shooting life of 280 according to CIPA standards.
