The Nikon P6000 is a high-end compact with a wideangle 28-12mm lens, 13MP, and new features including Raw shooting and GPS, so how does it perform?
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.
