Nikon Coolpix P6000 review


The P6000 has given us little in the way of surprises, and in many respects what I’ve found mirrors what I concluded from testing its predecessor.

The obligatory increase in resolution is perhaps unnecessary for most users – and potentially detrimental to image quality – though by the standard of most compacts, it’s capable of producing impressively detailed images.

Its control over chromatic aberrations is impressive, it handles well and is an all-round portable option. Its menu system is easy to understand, and while the inclusion of GPS and the my Picturetown functions are niceties rather than necessities, having in-camera Raw processing, D-Lighting and Distortion Control make it a particularly useful compact if you want immediate processing power in-camera.

Yes, there are others at this price which perform to a similar level, but even so it’s still an excellent compact.
