Summary: I haven't been able to get the P6000 to work. When I first turned it on, the multi-selector did not work so I could not get the camera set up. I called Nikon and after a long hold, I reached Nikon support. They said to send it to them via an (expensive) overnight service, which cost me twenty bucks or so (plus the inconvenience of a trip to town). Eventually the camera came back. It still did not work, in fact, it won't even turn on.
Summary: I bought this camera so I could have a good compact camera with integral GPS to automatically tag photos with their locations. I ordered the camera with 2 day shipping. Wall Street Photo didn't ship until after I sent them an email five days after I placed the order. They did send it with 2 day shipping however. I have the used the camera for over a month. Picture quality is good. Usability is fair.
Summary: I bought the Nikon P6000 to replace my Fuji Finepix E-900, which, unfortunately, I lost. I have several Nikons, including a D2x, so I thought I'd try Nikon's pricey compact for my "carry everywhere" camera. At the time I bought it, based on Nikon advertising and the price, this was their "best" digital point and shoot camera. This will be a short review. This has been the worst camera I ever owned, film or digital, at any price.
Pros: Cute and full featured
Cons: Cute and full featured mean nothing in a poor quality product. I can find nothing to recommend in this camera. It's even a lousy GPS unit.
Summary: All in all the Nikon Coolpix P6000 an ok little point-and-shoot. But I didn't buy it to be an ok little point-and-shoot. I bought it specifically for location scouting and geotagging. I have owned the P6000 for several months now, and have NEVER managed to get a signal with the GPS. Now, I figured it wouldn't exactly be a Garmin. And a little spotty coverage would have been tolerable, but to NEVER get a signal is unacceptable.
Summary: This is my 7th Nikon and it was a very bad choice. I just had the camera for a day, and had to send it to Nikon for service twice so far. They packed too much technology in this camera. The new RAW format; that even Nikon software can not open is totaly ridiculous. The shape of the camera is nice compact and solid and 13 meg. Pix deliveres a good quality picture.
Summary: I was interested in the Nikon P6000, but I am also seriously annoyed by the NRW proprietary RAW file format. I spent all day trying to get windows to read the NRW format without jumping through hoops with no luck. First I returned the unit, I won't buy any camera unless it supports a standard file format such as JPG. I bought the P6000 since it fully supports GPS data in the JPG format as well.
Summary: I received the Camera-Box, with the manual instruction, DVD, Cables for PC and Garantee ect... BUT NO CAMERA. VERY DODGY SERVICE. You order something and they deliver everything in the camera box....except the camera.
Summary: I had hoped that this item was not quite as bad as the reviews said. I've been after a GPS camera for quite some time now and there just is none on the market - except this effort. This is also one of the few cameras which offers me the ability to print the date/time to the actual image - much like older cameras did. I was sadly mistaken and the GPS is still truly awful.
