I love this camera, even being completely outdated by today's standards. But things have changed. At the time it was made, companies still searching obsessively for higher resolutions which had been reached with the film. Then we moved on to a period when companies sought to minimize noise to the maximum to achieve the purity of the best films. Currently we have cameras with extremely low noise and high resolutions, which also are quick as lightning. And now finally we have it all, we can go ...

The Nikon P6000 was onto my list since release in 2008, i've bought it back into 2013 or 2014 (can't remember currently) for just 100 bucks (NOS almost), the full retail package with 4 new extra Nikon spare Batteries. With the "latest" Firmware 1.2, the camera doesn't feel so sluggish after all, and it just works. positive - RAW Format (albeit Nikons NRW instead of DSLR-like NEF Format) - VR, image stabilized Zoom - Optical "Tunnel"Viewfinder Zooms also when changing focal length (albeit only ...

I bought this camera 5 months ago because I wasn't satisfied of the poor image quality of my SLR with a 18-135 zoom. I chose this model because of the good experience with an old Coolpix 5400 I used many years before. After many images in all situations I shoot, I can say P6000 is the compact suited for my needs: light, quick enough in response, no visible chromatic aberration, very good overall image quality. I'd suggest this camera. Problems: Not real problems but features that could be ...

i am buying this camera (refurbished from Nikon for $299!!) now because its price dropped like a stone, and had never owned a Nikon before. so, as a keen user of Canon (I currently own the G9 and S90) is was curious and eager to experiment with the differences. first of all, the look and feel of this camera is quite spectacular. while it is a bit smaller than a Canon G series, it's had a very nice grip on the right side, it lies solidly and has reassuring weight in your hand. the ergonomics ...

Bottom line: skin tones from people are the same as a DSLR. Not the Canon yellows, this camera makes people look nice and pink, healthy. Canon makes people blind white or yellow. This Nikon makes people look great.

Basic operation and features are OK. Still, I sold it due to the shortcomings mentioned below. I used it for a whiile and decided to move on. Before this one, I owned the P5100, then the P6000. Problems: o LCD is pretty uselss in direct sunlight o Zoom is too coarse Both issues are show stoppers for me.

This is my 2nd Nikon compact camera in my life, the 1st one was CoolPix 3100, this was story over 10 years, it was really disappointing me for its battery life, I still remember that I keep buying batteries for the camera as the batteries get exhausted too fast.....after this, whenever I plan to buy camera, Nikon never be my consideration. The reason I have changed my mind to Nikon it is b'cos I have make research thru' internet and reading a lot of reviews of this camera, and one of my ...

I have had this camera for a month now and have very mixed views on it. The GPS is a waste of power, time and money. The viewfinder is one of the reasons I chose the P6000 and it is reasonably good in most conditions. the image quality is reasonably good, the camera looks good and is built like a tank. If a compact is what you want you wont get much better at the price. Personally I prefer it to the LX3, but that is a personal preference. Update. Three months of use has not changed my opinion ...

I'm a Canon guy from my point and shoots to my SLRs. I picked this up for ~250.00 at the Circuit City closing. I am very pleased with the black and white performance. I prefer using this point and shoot for black/white street photography over my SLR. Pros: - Image quality is great under the "right" lighting conditions. - GPS (though, I haven't used it yet) - pocketable (unlike my G10) - Fantastic black and white portrait pictures! Cons: - Slow start up - Terrible imaging for city shots at ...
