CNET

  • Summary: For a compact, the P6000 is pretty good, but if you buy it thinking it's going to match a dSLR you're going to be disappointed. The responses aren't as fast, the viewing system is inferior and the control layout is less efficient.
  • Pros: 4x wideangle zoom; PASM exposure modes; vibration reduction.
  • Cons: Noise reduction; poor optical viewfinder; sluggish responses.

  • 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.

Nikon Coolpix P6000 review

Digital Arts
2 August 2009
  • Excerpt: Nikon’s eagerly awaited CoolPix P6000 is the replacement to the maker’s P5000 and its P5100 upgrade. Like those earlier offerings, the 13.5 million-pixel P6000 is pitched unashamedly at the high end, but it’s a market that has been dominated by arch-rival Canon, with its highly capable G-series...
  • Pros: High picture quality (at low ISOs); handy image stabilization; exposure control and small, well-built body.
  • Cons: Occasionally tardy auto-focus operation; unreliable GPS operation; Raw file not officially supported on Mac OS X.

  • Summary: The 13.5Mp Nikon CoolPix P6000 is a compact camera pitched unashamedly at the high end of the market, an area previously dominated by arch-rival Canon, with its highly capable G9 and G10 compacts.

  • Excerpt: This tech-packed stunner of a bridge camera strives to offer a perfect balance between the DSLR and compact worlds.
  • Pros: Nikon’s rock-solid reputation for camera gear is reflected in the P6000′s performance: this takes bright, noise-free 13.5-megapixel photos, whether you’re the hands-on type who wants to tweak settings manually and shoot in RAW for more flexibility in post processing, or the no-nonsense holiday-ma...
  • Cons: If we switch our own settings to nitpicking mode, we weren’t particularly impressed by the tiny viewfinder, and some of the controls are unnecessarily over-fiddly. Also, the GPS receiver can be a touch slow to grab a satellite fix.

  • 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...

  • Conclusion: And so when you look at the P6000 against rivals such as Canon’s PowerShot G10 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3, you’re left asking if this camera is a missed opportunity by Nikon?
  • Pros: Build and handling, low ISO image quality, easy to use, image stabilisation
  • Cons: Basic optical viewfinder, intermittent GPS, high ISO image noise, price

  • Summary: The Coolpix P6000 is Nikon's best attempt yet at a compact camera that's good enough for a pro photographer, but ultimately it has a few serious flaws that means it falls short.
