Summary: I really like Nikon cameras and was looking forward to owning a "point and shoot" for times when I can't take my DSLR with me. As far as point and shoot cameras go, the P6000 is "OK." The pictures turn out well as long as you don't exceed ISO 400.
Summary: The camera takes adequate pictures but I bought the camera for the GPS feature. What a frustrating disappointment. The GPS can take 10-20 minutes to sync. This is sitting on a bench, on the boardwalk at the Jersey shore. You don't get a clearer shot of the GPS satellites then that.
Summary: I've found two big problems with this camera. 1- The automatic mode flat out fails when put in interior light. Especially if one is surrounded by fluorescent bulbs. 2- The battery seems to drain when off... It is never able to hold its charge... (Perhaps it's my own problem though?
Summary: I am a big fan of Nikon and before buying this P&S, I got a D90 which is really phenomenal. I did not have much time yet to review in details the performance of the P6000 but I want to share the first impressions I had from using it indoors for the past 3 days.
Summary: You can not edit the pictures on picture project a super fast ans easy Nikon software, It's super quick and easy to re-sharpen and crop. the softwart package it comes with, well it might as well have not come with anything.
Summary: Firstly, I am NOT a professional or someone you'd turn to for technical camera information. I don't mean to sound pretentious, but I have more of an "artsy" interest in photography. Admittedly, I did not go into each and every feature of this camera.
Not bad but I wish I had bought a Canon PowerShot G10

Summary: So this cam is fairly great. It has all the modes of a DSLR like Aperture, shutter and programable settings. The GPS never works for me so don't get excited about it. The Auto setting it great and allows me to point and shoot.
Summary: I have used Nikon and Nikkor for years and have always found them brilliant. I bought the P6000 to take location shots with GPS data on the film. The camera is great but the GPS implementation is hopeless. 99 times out of a 100 it does not register a location.
