Either these samples are OUTSTANDING ...

... or my standards are low.

They're shockingly good - great skin texture and tones in the portraits, and superb detail and bokeh in the still life shot.

They certainly dwarf what I can get from my Olympus SP-5770UZ in terms of pure image quality.

Just for the record, they also far exceed whatever I could get with my (long-forgotten-by-most-people) Coolpix 4500.

Perhaps the P6000 can really excel in controlled situations. It looks like they used studio lighting for the portraits (or SB flashes?).

I look forward to how it handles outdoor shots and landscapes.

Nikon might have something significant happening in the P600 lens and imaging engine after all.

ISO 64 looks good, lens looks good, maybe a jpeg camera

At a slow f5.6, ISO 64 with studio lighting, the color and image quality are impressive. The lens looks very good, but then it had better considering how slow it is.

Notably absent are any faster ISO samples.

The psuedo raw Nikon has introduced with this camera still kills any possibility that I'd buy this camera.

Retouched

Don't forget that official samples usualy are retouched for days.
Not to forget perfect lightning, that will be hard to get with such slow lens.

Noise Reduction smearing

It's only me that can see the smearing produced by NR on the tiny hairs on her face in the area against the background ? And that at ISO 64...

I'd call that depth of field

Those hairs don't look smeared to my eye, just out of focus. The image looks great, it just doesn't say much about what the camera can do outside a studio.

Yes, the hairs on the neck are out of focus, but do not look like normal out of focus hairs to me anyway. On the other hand, the hairs on the chin are in focus and are smeared by the NR that smooths the background. It seems that the algorithms for identifying the NR suited areas needs some improvements.
And look at this other crop:

do outside a studio.

Yes, as a whole, the image looks almost acceptable, but you wouldn't believe the amount of detail that some in camera noise reduction algorithms can remove, while keeping the image looking still very good. Only by seeing the same scene without NR (RAW ?) you can make an idea about what is missing.

Interesting info from the Japanese site

Nikon's Japanese site has a lot more information on the camera than the American one, and there are some interesting tidbits...Nikon actually has made an optical viewfinder attachment for the camera, although I can't understand why.

Also, P6000 can take Raw+JPG...can the LX3 do that?

Re: Nikon P6000 Official Sample Images (3)

The samples look promising, I'll go for it if the IQ from production batch lives up to that.
I'm a Jpeg shooter anyway....

BTW, what if Nike offers the model without "RAW" capability at all and cut $100 from the tag, what will people say about the camera?

Re: Interesting info from the Japanese site

Looks suspiciously like a 28mm Voigtlander viewfinder B&H sells for $170:

But that could be a common viewfinder build.

Re: Interesting info from the Japanese site

Just curious, will there be any information (focusing for example) visible in the viewfinder?

studio shots..

These are well lit studio shots at low iso. All cameras give good IQ at low iso in good light, but alas the ever increasing pixel counts in tiny P&S sensors is unsettling since most people only view their photographs on a computer screen at maybe 1MP or they resize them small for social networking sites and have no use for anything larger than 3MP.

The sad thing is a lot of people don't understand that when you view a 12MP image on a computer screen all at one time, the image is resized smaller essentially greatly reducing the image and its recorded detail temporarily and they never see or utilize all the pixels recorded.

true but look at the highlights. there isn't fringe so maybe the ED glass is actually working. and the fine detail is great. look what panasonic's venus engine is doing to fine detail. or better google for that petiton people made years ago when they first notice the NR in venus engine actually ruins images. endless threads are here too.

you can also google to look at other camera's studio shots on their own websites. they don't look very good.

Re: Nikon P6000 Official Sample Images (3)

I would prefer the same P6000 :

  • with 8MP at same sensor size, a fast AF in low light, a good IQ for video with zoom

  • without RAW and GPS

  • A price at 450$

then it's not much more than P5100 (which i paied only US$270) , P5000, which ain't bad as a jpg only camera(but no GPS, no wide angle.). look at the price of Fuji F100 and compare it to Panasonic LX-2, Ricoh GX100(which i use most of the time) or Canon G9.

Remarkable

Regardless of the raw mess, these are by far the best images I have seen of any compact digital camera, it is a lot better than the GX-100 shot from raw at 80 iso.

  • more micro detail

  • less noise

  • better tones

Cheers,
Bernard
