Summary: Camera arrived to be used by our dematologist office. The camera leaving a dark spot image on pictures.. We purchased a replacement camera and filed for a return on 11/19/13 the date allowed per Amazon policy. We did not hear anything and filed again for the return. The Video & Audio Center has refused to take back this DEFECTIVE CAMERA . DO NOT PURCHASE FROM THIS COMPANY!!!
Summary: Bought for AA batteries, pic quality, viewfinder non-giga-pixel overload. It took great pictures. Two months later died of the lens error in India. The product is tempting, but DO NOT BUY IT unless you really like to gamble.
Summary: I have always been a huge fan of Nikon, but this is the worst camera I've ever owned! I've tried all the focus settings and it has yet to take a clear picture. Maybe it's a glitch in mine because none of the other reviews mentioned the focus - only the flash. It's true the flash is weak, but the focus is by far the worst feature. It's been tested indoors and out, using face priority, and all the other settings.
Summary: I was excited to get the P60 for a very reasonable price given the features the camera has (which suit my needs well). However, in my few short weeks of owning it, I have had numerous issues with the camera locking up, powering down without prompt (but not retracting the lens), and not being able to exit out of some menus. I am hoping this is an individual camera fluke and not an entire product/design issue...
Summary: We bought this camera in April, 2007 from Amazon. It worked ok, not great. It took several seconds to store each picture and be ready to take another one, even though I bought a very fast flash memory card. The battery cover broke almost immediately, so the batteries are now held in by a piece of tape. Within 5 months of purchase, however, we got the dreaded "LCD read error.
Summary: The Nikon P60 has really nice features for the price: it has a handy (electronic) view-finder (that isn't painful to use because you don't need to squint like mad), useful 5x zoom and helpful optical image stabilization (VR). However, to me, the deal breaker was the fact that it uses the ubiquitous AA cell instead of an expensive proprietary battery. This is great for traveling - if your batteries die, you can get replacement AA's just about anywhere.

Summary: I wanted a point and shoot for easy shots. My first digital camera was a Nikon Coolpix 950, and it was a rock solid camera that still works 8 years later. My second digital camera was a Nikon Coolpix 995, and it was a rock-solid camera that still works 6 years later. My Nikon P60 worked for a week. I didn't even carry it around with me; it rode in the passenger seat of my car. The lens mechanism failed and wouldn't move in and out.
Summary: What a disappointment. This is nothing more than one of the L-series cameras with an electronic viewfinder. There are really only two f-stops, and the choice of shutter speeds only goes to 1/1250. There is no aperture or shutter priority. The lens is neither really fast or slow. It will handle what it was purchased for, to make snaps straight out of a purse, but nothing more. It really does not belong with the P5100 in the same series.
