Nikon Coolpix P60

PC Magazine
16 May 2008
  • 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.

[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...
  • 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 — ...

  • 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

Nikon Coolpix P60 digital camera

Pocket Lint
29 April 2008
  • Conclusion: The Nikon Coolpix P60 is the same price as the P50 and barring the EVF; it’s a much better camera in terms of performance. There’s some noticeable barrel distortion on that lens, a lens which offers, in my view, a less flexible focal range than the P50’s 28-102mm zoom, so if you can live with those...
  • Pros: Easy to use, good "classic" design and styling, simple control layout, AA-battery power, image quality, nice manual controls
  • Cons: High ISO image noise, electronic viewfinder

CNET
4 August 2008
  • Summary: Eher schwerfällig als sexy, eher kompetent als cool: Dennoch ist die etwas klobige Nixon Coolpix P60 eine zuverlässige Schnappschusskamera. Sie sieht zwar wirklich nicht besonders aufregend aus, liefert aber erfreulich gute Bilder.
  • Pros: einfache Bedienung, zuverlässige Bildqualität
  • Cons: Sucher und Blitz ungünstig positioniert, langweiliges Design

Nikon P60: kompakt s elektronickým hledáčkem

3 August 2008
  • Conclusion: Rozmístění ostatních ovládacích prvků je tradiční, na horní straně hlavní vypínač, volič expozičních režimů a spoušť. Zadní stranu pak pokrývá LCD dispej a vedle něj křížový volič s potvrzovacím tlačítkem a další tři tlačítka. Nad displejem je přepínač režimu zobrazení displeje a hledáčku.
