Nikon Coolpix P6000 Review

My P6000

My P6000

Like the camera itself, I’m a bit slow but I found a full review of the Nikon Coolpix P6000 here.

Dpreview.com did not do a full review. It was included in their Christmas 2008 “Prosumer” Group Test.

In summary the reviewer listed the following Pros and Cons for the camera:

Pro

  • RAW format
  • Excellent handling and ergonomics
  • Strong image quality at low ISOs
  • Sharp Nikon lens with useful zoom range
  • Pocketable size and weight
  • Color controls
  • Optical viewfinder
  • No separate battery charger (charge in camera)

Con

  • Relatively high price
  • Auto focus average to slow
  • Menu interface slow
  • Slow card write speed/small buffer
  • No live histogram
  • Lens relatively slow f/5.9 at 112mm
  • Manual focus is imprecise
  • Hot shoe only works with Nikon Speedlites
  • Ethernet only for Nikon’s Web site

I generally agree with the reviewer – it’s a good camera in many ways but hard to get enthused about. If it wasn’t for the GPS I would be very disappointed. I suspect Nikon restricted it to avoid competition with their DSLR range.

I am monitoring the Nikon Rumours site for news of the P7000, but there’s nothing new yet.
