Nikon Coolpix P6000 Review

 

Thanks to its built-in GPS receiver and Ethernet port, Nikon's $499 Coolpix P6000 camera is innovative. But as with any invention, it takes time to work out the kinks; its GPS receiver simply wasn't accurate. Plus, the image quality, while good, didn't...

Good image quality, Ethernet port allows for speedy transfer of RAW images, Versatile wide-angle 4X lens, Sharp, bright LCD display

Large and heavy, Mediocre image stabilization, Sluggish shot-to-shot speeds, Weak GPS receiver

Nikon Coolpix P6000 review

 

Nikon has enjoyed an enormous boost in popularity over the past year, which most photographers undoubtedly will have noticed. Nikon's digital SLR series is extremely successful, and not only for the professional. Both the entry-level model and the...

With the Coolpix P6000, Nikon shows exactly what is meant with a serious digital compact camera for the serious photographer. The camera of the P-series should be able to distinguish itself from the masses, and this is in fact exactly what the P6000...

Nikon Coolpix P6000 Review

 

The new Nikon P6000 is the most full-featured and highest-priced model in Nikon's extensive range of Coolpix compact digital cameras. Designed to appeal to the keen enthusiast photographer, the P6000's most obvious competitor is the Canon PowerShot...

The Nikon Coolpix P6000 is a good camera in its own right, but doesn't quite cut the mustard when compared to its main rivals, the Canon PowerShot G10 and Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3. There are just too many rough edges, with the noisy images at slow ISO...

Nikon Coolpix P6000 Digital Camera - First Shots - The Imaging Resource!

 

The Nikon Coolpix P6000 has a sensor with 13.5 megapixel resolution, coupled to a Nikkor ED-branded 4x wide angle zoom lens that offers a useful 28mm wide-angle. The lens also includes Optical VR image stabilization, helping reduce camera shake when...

In addition to Program, Aperture- / Shutter-priority and Manual exposure modes, the Coolpix P6000 offers a selection of 15 different scene-optimized modes, several movie modes with sound (including a time-lapse mode), and a macro mode that can focus...

Nikon Coolpix P6000 Review

 

The P6000 certainly offers a lot of bang for the buck, and it's the only camera that supports geotagging straight out of the box. How does it perform? You'll have to find out by reading our review, which starts right now

Good photo quality at low ISOs, and in good light ; Well built, fairly compact, easy to hold (for the most part) ; Optical image stabilization (known as Vibration Reduction here) ; Sharp 2.7" LCD is visible outdoors and in low light ; Full manual...

Noise reduction smudges fine details and solid areas of color, even at lowest ISO; noticeable detail loss at ISO 400 and above ; Occasional highlight clipping ; Lens is slow at the telephoto end ; Unusual RAW format has huge file sizes, slow...

All things considered, the Coolpix P6000 is a decent camera, but not a great one. It has a lot to live up to as the flagship of Nikon's compact lineup, and in that respect, it disappoints. While the P6000 is worth a look, I think the competition from...

Nikon Coolpix P6000 Review

 

Advanced compacts are one of the most interesting segments of the digicam market at the moment, offering much of the power – in terms of exposure control, at least – of a DSLR in packages that are easier to tote along in a pocket or purse. We've seen...

Generally solid auto focus, Customizable interface couldn't be much better, Pro-grade build quality, Rich, detailed images at lower ISOs

Luminance noise shows up in regular-sized prints, GPS, network connectivity could have both been better, Screen and viewfinder not a great combo, Flash recycle times measurable with a calendar, Underwhelming battery life
