Summary: I'm just going to give basic views here because there are a lot of great reviews. I've already taken several thousand photos with this camera and am very pleased with the daylight shots. It excels in good light at ISO 100 to 400.
Summary: A real nice camera, small in size but large in picture quality and features. Love the rotary program button, just like in the old days when one could quickly and easily switch from mode to mode without having to go through endless menus.
Summary: I chose this camera for underwater photography to replace my Canon G7. I am very happy with the choice. The camera has good optional housings that allow the use of external lenses, both Macro and Wide (Canon G series only takes macro).
Summary: This is a real quality camera for a point and shoot. It features an exceptionally sharp lens (Nikon quality is why you buy this camera). The buttons and settings are relatively easy to master, though like all digital cameras, a read of the manual and an occasional look-up afterwards are required to...
Summary: About my background: I have had the P6000 for about 3 months now and have probably taken over 1000 photos on summer travels, local excursions, and family gatherings. I am not a professional photographer, though I can put myself somewhere along the lines of an advanced amateur (not sure I would say...
Summary: I bought this camera and I loved most features, but returned it for a few issues. Here they are: The GPS. A camera that supports built-in geotagging is a wonderful idea, but this is not the camera for it. I almost never got a reception from its built-in GPS.
I will make this reveiw as short and clear as possible.

Summary: Reason for four star, not five. Mainly two problem caused this final grade. The first is the GPS, it can't work that fancy as you imagine, and it will use lots of battery life to maintain this function. Second,the optical viewfinder is totally useless without doubt.
Summary: I received this camera for Christmas to be used as my everyday carry camera. I shoot with a Nikon D200. I have made almost 100 images and have been pleased. I have made both JPG and NRW (raw)format along with a short video. I like the time lapse option on the video.
Summary: After reading all the other reviews I couldn't help but laugh....what did you guys think this camera was going to be? For those of you not old enough to remember, I can assure you that back in the Nikon F days of the late 60's & early 70's the 35mm rangerfinders were a compromise vs the SLR's too!
