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.
Sophisticated point-and-shoot with lots of features

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: I was very happy with this camera. It is portable and lightweight, still gets great shots like the big professional cameras do. It will take some training to use it right- there are a lot of features and settings that the average person would not understand- like me. But for immediate use, it can be used as point and click.
Summary: This takes awesome pictures, very sharp and crisp. I am an amateur photographer and have everything set to auto because I don't yet know what all the iso and other jargain is all about. I'd love to see what this thing can do with someone who knows what they are doing. GPS feature is very nice since I have a mac and am using the new iPhoto which supports geotagging. The one feature that I would call a little "lacking" is the zoom.
Summary: I bought the Nikon Coolpix P6000 as a companion for the Nikon D300 I already own. I needed a small, light point-and-shoot camera that I could throw in my bag or purse or pocket for those times when the D300 would be too heavy or obtrusive. I have only had the camera few weeks so far, but so far I am pleased with its performance, its functionality, and its portability. It is easy to use right out of the box and delivers a nice photo.
