Summary: Great pictures good video for a camera that fits into a pocket! If you're a "serious" photographer you might find it lacking - spend hundreds more for the higher resolution and all the whistles and bells. If you want good photos as keepsakes or reminders of trips it is wonderful. I've been using it for years and love it. Taken thousands of pictures in my travels (I'm a travel agent and, unfortunately, my own best customer) and videos. Never disappointed.
P60 is a nice camera, but this particular used camera was not as advertised
29 January 2014
Summary: This used P60 was purchased to replace a malfunctioning P60 that has a custom underwater housing. As described, the USB cable was missing. No problem. Not mentioned was the fact that the latch on the battery compartment door was broken, and the flash was not working, rendering the entire camera non-functional.

Good price. Viewfinder and hi-def, but not the perfect camera.
29 October 2013
Summary: I got it for the price, picture quality and the view finder. However the viewfinder is digital and you can't easily switch between it and the display. The controls are not very responsive and by today's standards it's a bit clunky. The pics are great, but I'm still looking for the perfect camera.
Summary: I've been using these cameras for nearly 4 years - they are not professional-grade, but I have taken thousands of pictures with them that have been very pleasing, including long distance and panorama shots, portraits, and landscapes. They can be very conservative in battery life if you turn off the screen. It appears that Nikon has stopped making them, so I have recently purchased two backups, one new and one used.
Awesome Digital Camera...lots of features, easy to use
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I have owned this Nikon P60 Digital camera for a year and a half. I have a small child, so I take pictures constantly. I have owned several digital cameras since they started coming out and I wanted something a little more moderate digital and higher end than just my basic digital camera that I have in my purse everyday. What sold me on this version of the Nikon the optical zoom. This allows me to have clear, larger pictures when I do enlargements.
Excerpt: When I made the decision to buy this camera, I was in a rush. My one two year old broke my beloved Cannon the day before and I am not the kind of person that can go without a camera. Because this was an unexpected loss of my camera, I had a limited budget to shop with. I quickly found this Nikon P60 for around $100 on a daily deal from Office Depot.
Nikon Coolpix P60 - For the price, a good quality camera.
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I purchased this camera after an older one broke. It happened to be on sale for a decent price, which was the first reason we looked at it. I was also interested in the Mega Pixel support, which is 8.1. Our previous camera only supported 7, and because I work in print and design, I know how important high quality images can be when it comes to reprinting, enlarging, etc.
Excerpt: I have never been a huge nikon fan, but after finding a great deal on the Nikon P60, I must say that I am very impressed. The camera is a little wide for a small point and shoot, but very impressive nonetheless. The picture quality is pretty good overall, and the camera itself is very easy to use. The battery life is fair, but very good with rechargeable batteries. The 5x optical zoom is very impressive, and pictures overall are pretty good quality, even indoors.
Summary: I had a Nikon E3200 with which I start! That camera!, Then went for a P50, to the best of all compact of his time slightly higher than the Panasonic TZ5, then I wanted to go for the P60, and the truth under the same Nikon quality sign, another excellent camera I am very happy with them, would have been very good to keep the wide angle of the P50, I think they changed it more zoom, a detail that so far I have something unhappy is perhaps the only thing the focus and...
