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. This was a con for me as I bought the camera to use in lower light conditions. Any thing shot at 6400 was unusable.
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. I must admit the performance of this camera is extremely disappointing - Slow Focus - Slow file saving on the memory card when selecting fine+raw - Very slow continuous shooting - You need to wait 5 seconds for...
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. After gaining sync the GPS would often lose sync while outdoors. Some of the pictures were off location by 1/4 mile.
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?) Overall I'm disappointed.
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.
The camera is built very well and easy to use, lots of options to select from, I would just have expected better picture quality for a Nikons top of the line point and shoot. Maybe I'm just use to my Nikon D-300 cameras.

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. The reason I purchased it sight-unseen was because how happy I'd been with my Coolpix 8800 and I liked the idea of a higher number of megapixels as well as the option of a wide-angle lens.
Excerpt: This was my first time using any camera other than a standard small digital camera so the idea was new to me and considering I didn't have an instruction manual I think I coped quite well. At first I admit I was a little lost as the settings are not as simplified as a regular digital camera which i am used to, for instance there was no 'flower/party/portrait' settings to choose from (as you would expect from a professional camera) but after a while I grasped the...
Pros: small and relatively lightweight, easy to use, straightforward
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. The flash is good and this cam can take excellent picks without the flash. My problem with this is the lense gaurd. It's beginging to stick so when turning it on and off the shutter doesnt open or shut properly and I have to push it with my finger.
