  • Conclusion: Nikon Coolpix P6000 digital camera With the Coolpix P6000, Nikon shows exactly what is meant with a serious digital compact camera for the serious photographer. The camera of the P-series should be able to distinguish itself from the masses, and this is in fact exactly what the P6000 does. Most certainly compared to the other Coolpix models and to be frank, these do not resemble a true Nikon in my opinion.

Nikon Coolpix P6000 review

  • Summary: While the main camera features work as well as can be expected, with a heavy price tag, the value of the seemingly unreliable geo-tagging feature and unnecessary ethernet option are questionable. You can buy the Nikon Coolpix P6000 for a little less in the US – and we rather suspect that’s closer to its true worth.

  • Excerpt: The Coolpix P6000 ($499) is the flagship camera in Nikon's compact digital camera lineup. It features a 13.5 Megapixel CCD, a 4X wide-angle zoom lens, image stabilization, 2.7" LCD display, full manual controls, a hot shoe, and RAW format support. In addition to all that, the P6000 also has two very unique features: a built-in GPS receiver and an Ethernet port. Yes, you read that right, an Ethernet port, which is used to transfer photos to Nikon's My Picturetown service.
  • Pros: Good photo quality at low ISOs, and in good light, Well built, fairly compact, easy to hold (for the most part), Optical image stabilization (known as Vibration Reduction here), Sharp 2.7" LCD is visible outdoors and in low light, Full manual controls, Customizable menu and button, Support for the RAW image format (though see issues below); camera can convert RAW to JPEG in playback mode, Built-in GPS for easy geotagging, Active D-Lighting improves contrast in images ...
  • Cons: Noise reduction smudges fine details and solid areas of color, even at lowest ISO; noticeable detail loss at ISO 400 and above, Occasional highlight clipping, Lens is slow at the telephoto end, Unusual RAW format has huge file sizes, slow shot-to-shot times, and cannot be used in continuous shooting mode; Nikon's own software cannot edit the RAW files, No live histogram in record mode, GPS is very slow at acquiring satellites, and requires a lot of open sky to functio...

  • Excerpt: DSLR camera owners have a lot to be happy about when it comes to pure camera performance, but let's face it — the size does get restrictive on many occasions. Really, do you want to be the guy with the bulky camera at family dinners or the guy who can't take those high risk shots because the camera was too big (and expensive)? The point is — even DSLR owners can do with a compact camera's simplicity at times.

Nikon P6000 Coolpix 13.5 MP Digital Camera: Over The Top

Personal Electronics buzz
28 December 2008
  • Excerpt: The Nikon P6000 Coolpix 13.5 MP digital camera has so many features it hard to sum it up. I have waited for this digital camera for months. I have an old Nikon point and shoot that will never die and I have been happy with its reliability. However, the Nikon P6000 takes my amateur picture taking and videos to a whole new level.

  • Summary: The Nikon Coolpix P6000 is a "pro" level compact consumer digital camera that offers total exposure flexibility in an attractive and durable body. The P6000 has one of the best grip on a compact digital camera. The textured and almost all-black finish give the camera a professional look. A 4x Zoom-NIKKOR lens with 28mm wide-angle capability and 13.5MP resolution allows the P6000 to capture very good image quality at the low ISOs.

Nikon Coolpix P6000 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
5 November 2008
  • Summary: Thanks to its built-in GPS receiver and Ethernet port, Nikon's $499 Coolpix P6000 camera is innovative. But as with any invention, it takes time to work out the kinks; its GPS receiver simply wasn't accurate. Plus, the image quality, while good, didn't measure up to other Nikon cameras we've tested. While early adopters will appreciate the P6000's unique features, we're eager to see how Nikon improves this technology.

Digital Camera Review
14 October 2008
  • Excerpt: Advanced compacts are one of the most interesting segments of the digicam market at the moment, offering much of the power – in terms of exposure control, at least – of a DSLR in packages that are easier to tote along in a pocket or purse. We've seen several high-profile updates to advanced compact models during the second half of 2008, with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3, the Canon PowerShot G10, and the Nikon Coolpix P6000 up for review today all building on the success...
  • Pros: Generally solid auto focus, Customizable interface couldn't be much better, Pro-grade build quality, Rich, detailed images at lower ISOs
  • Cons: Luminance noise shows up in regular-sized prints, GPS, network connectivity could have both been better, Screen and viewfinder not a great combo, Flash recycle times measurable with a calendar, Underwhelming battery life
