DCRP Review: Nikon Coolpix P6000
3.5 Star Review  DCResource - Jan 17, 2009

Trying to come up with a conclusion for the Nikon Coolpix P6000 has proven a bit challenging. On the one hand, it's a compact, easy to use camera with a wide-angle lens, good-sized LCD, full manual controls, customizable buttons and menus, and a hot shoe. It also offers two very unique features: a slow, but useful GPS receiver, and an Ethernet port that most people will probably never use. That said, as the flagship camera in Nikon's compact lineup, the P6000 has quite a few negatives. They include soft images with heavy noise reduction (that get noisy at higher ISOs), a clunky new RAW format, an unremarkable movie mode (complete with audio sync issues), and below average battery life. Do I recommend the P6000? Yes, but not with a whole lot of enthusiasm.

Nikon Coolpix P6000 Review
3.5 Star Review  Imaging Resource - May 7, 2009

The Nikon P6000 has a lot of interesting features, and some good Nikon optical quality, but the small sensor packing all those pixels just doesn't handle enlargement well as the camera overprocesses images to remove noise at the expense of detail. The GPS isn't as accurate as we'd like, and the unusual Ethernet port linking only to Nikon Picturetown seems oddly limiting, especially when you consider that you only get 2GB of free space and the average card is over 4GB these days. Still, there's much to like about the Coolpix P6000, despite the disappointments. See our review for more on the Nikon Coolpix P6000 digital camera.

The first digital camera with built-in GPS is ambitious but has too many quirks.

Nikon Coolpix P6000 Review
4 Star Review  photographyblog.com - Oct 29, 2008

The new Nikon Coolpix P6000 is a serious compact camera, with a wealth of features on offer to tempt the enthusiast. Built-in GPS support, LAN connectivity, RAW file format, and a 28mm wide-angle lens are the headline-grabbers, plus there are a number of more subtle touches including a DSLR-like handgrip, optical viewfinder, flash hotshoe, and not forgetting the 13.5 megapixel resolution. Does all of this add up to make the Nikon P6000 the ultimate prosumer digicam, and can it challenge the likes of the Canon PowerShot G10 and Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3? Mark Goldstein braved the icy London weather to find out…

Very good effort from Nikon, but needs some work
5 Star Review   By member sem99 - Oct 26, 2008   

Strengths: RAW, GPS, high quality images, very sharp, excellent grip, support for Nikon pro flashes

Weakness: No live histogram, RAW support for Mac is third party only, no battery charger (ac adaptor only), OVF is very basic

I like this camera a lot. Nikon is getting serious. Of course, the best features of this camera are RAW (NRW - new format) capability and GPS. Image quality coming from this camera is outstanding. You will need to tweak defaults in JPG settings if you plan to shoot in that format, but after you're done, you will be simply amazed at images you're getting. This is a direct competitor to Canon G10, but unlike the latter, it doesn't offer live histogram that I would prefer, and it has less manual dials. GPS is a big advantage though, and it works rather well. This camera is smaller than G10 and has a much nicer grip.
