  • Conclusion: Despite its heft and slow response times, this pricey point-and-shooter offers an impressive range of features for an entry-level digital camera.
  • Pros: Impressive zoom and focal-length range. Digital viewfinder can sub for LCD. Ability to start up in review mode. Great color in daylight shots. In-camera editing options.
  • Cons: Slow recycle and start-up. LCD impossible to use in direct sunlight. Bulky for "compact" camera. No rechargeable battery option.

  • Conclusion: I like the Nikon Coolpix P60. It fills a gap in the market between more basic point and shoot cameras and more advanced models. It gives people with an interest in photography the opportunity to buy a good quality camera for a reasonable price.
  • Pros: Ease of use - build quality - picture sharpness - bright photos
  • Cons: Macro mode - noisy indoor shot

[REVIEW—NIKON COOLPIX P60]

DPexpert
5 July 2008
  • Summary: Assessing compact cameras is difficult. Measured against the standards set by the best digital SLRs they are all inadequate. Images are noisy. The cheap lenses distort. One eminent reviewer says of a similar compact: "The question this camera raises is: if the extra megapixels added are too mushed-up by noise reduction to allow for large prints or cropping-in on images, then what are they good for?" There is a destructive numbers race on.
  • Pros: The quality of images is satisfactory. Colour reproduction is generally accurate. The vibration reduction slightly increases the opportunities for hand holding in low light.
  • Cons: The electronic viewfinder has no dioptre adjustment, so everything looks out of focus to spectacle wearers. Presumably an EVF is cheaper to make than an optical viewfinder. At wideangle the lens exhibits extreme barrel distortion. Dynamic range is restricted with highlights tending to blow out — a problem with most high pixel count compacts.
