amazon.com purchase - Nikon Coolpix P6000 13.5MP Digital Camera...
6 February 2012
Summary: The camera arrived in great condition... in box with all paperwork and materials (even the cords and accessories were packaged) JUST LIKE NEW..... VERY happy considering it was a used camera I was purchasing! I was EXTREMELY delighted when it arrived. It was for my EAST classroom after the new one had gotten broken.... couldn't afford a NEW one, but this one is JUST LIKE NEW..... only less expensive!!!
Summary: This is the best point and shoot camera on the market to date, in my opinion. I lost it to a fire and I've purchased other point and shoot (fuji fine pix f550exr, and nikon s6000) in an attempt to replace this one because the prioe now it just out of my range, but none can compare to the features of the p6000. I like the manual part of it and of course the image quality and the gps function as well.
Summary: I have had other Nikon digital cameras. All have taken excellent pictures. This is a compact and is about the same footprint (but thicker) than my cell phone. I like that it still has the optical finder. I suspect that the arm's length position (to see the LCD finder) prone to shakiness. Cameras were meant to be put up to one's eye and braced against the head. It has a lot of options - aperture priority, shutter priority, manual, even manual focus, if you want.
Summary: This camera is absolutely amazing for a simple to use point and shoot digital camera. There are a multitude of adjustments for those of us that want to tailor our photographs to suit our specific preferences. Also, with the purchase of this camera (if new) one receives the Nikon photo suite which allows the user to "tune" the photographs after the picture has been taken. Amazing camera! And as always, Nikon provides exceptional build quality and functionality.
Summary: In June 2009, I purchased the Nikon P6000 camera (for $500) before I went on a 1,500-mile long river trip down the Yangtze River in China. My main purpose was to photograph landslides, geologic formations, karst terrain, historical monuments and other features along the river and side trips. Without lugging around a separate GPS unit, I wanted to know fairly accurately where my photos were taken.

Summary: Like many of the other reviewers in here, I was shopping for a point and shoot to supplement my DSLR, and the P6000 stood out as the ideal candidate. I like the Canon G10 and a few others, but I use Nikon's DSLR cameras and the P6000 feels more comfortable and familiar to me. Nikon's intuitive menusing system and well laid out controls are actually a major advantage, especially if you're already familiar with them.
Nikon P6000 the best non-SLR digital camera EVER!!

Summary: I purchased the Nikon P6000 because the pocket digital cameras on the market just didn't work for me any longer. The pocket digitals are OK, don't get me wrong. For indoor shots they are pretty good. Ever since my son was born 6 years ago, i have probably taken over 5000 pictures. I would have to say at least 500 of them were crappy.
Summary: Despite several somewhat negative reviews I found on the Internet I decided to buy a P6000 and I do not regret it at all. If you are looking for a point and shot camera that feels professional this is the right camera for you. I have done amateur photography with SLR and now with DSLR (I own a D40X) but I needed a smaller camera that I can easily carry with me with most of the DSLR features (you know, you want to feel in control of the camera rather than the camera in...
"Solid" Feel, Versatile & Perfect For My Needs -- A Winner!

Summary: I'm an advanced amateur that wanted something better and more versatile than my Canon A640. After reading numerous reviews comparing the new Canon G10 and the Nikon P6000 I was convinced the Canon G10 was the right choice, then went into a local camera store to compare the two. The Nikon falls into my hand better than the Canon, is lighter and smaller, has a sturdy metal case and the photo quality is indistinguishable from the Canon's.
Summary: Well, this is an early review (more as I run the camera through its paces), but I must reply to the review by TGre. If you want EVERYTHING found in a D-SLR, then you need to buy a D-SLR. I own a D300 and use it professionally. However, I needed a camera that I carry with me at all times and that packed as many features as possible. This camera certainly seems to be it!
