Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Traditional camera styling, reliable performance. An impressively high 8.1-megapixel count delivers pictures with true-to-life color and pleasing details. What’s more, it means images can be enlarged greatly and still look absolutely stunning. The quality optics of a 36-180mm 5x Zoom-Nikkor lens (35mm format equivalent) maximize compositional freedom and image quality.

Coolpix P60 Highlights

Practical shooting modes Programmed Auto [P] and Manual [M] exposure modes that give greater personal control over camera operation are accessible via the Mode dial, as well as a selection of 15 scene-optimized modes and four different movie modes.

VR image stabilization Nikon’s image sensor shift VR image stabilization compensates for camera shake to produce clearer, sharper results in lower light or unsteady conditions. VR’s stabilizing effects also help you shoot more smoothly and easily.

ISO 2000 capability Light sensitivity range up to ISO 2000 with manual control or auto control (up to ISO 800) creates new opportunities to take sharper, more natural looking photos in lower light conditions, or to capture fastmoving subjects with outstanding clarity.

AA-size batteries for shoot-anywhere convenience Compatibility with AA-size batteries, which are widely available around the world, means carefree shooting virtually anywhere without worrying about recharging or running out of power.

Coolpix Premium Features

Coolpix in-camera technologies give you the edge when it comes to taking beautiful pictures more easily and with greater enjoyment. Included are innovative functions that increase shooting opportunities in a broader range of situations, help to optimize images, and add a new dimension of fun to sharing those results.

VR image stabilization Nikon Coolpix cameras offer an array of VR technologies that produce blur-free images when shooting in unsteady conditions or at slower shutter speeds. Selected models are equipped with one of two types of Optical VR, Lens Shift VR, which delivers sharp and steady images effective for shooting and faster framing with the LCD, or Image Sensor Shift VR, which moves the image sensor to accurately compensate for camera shake. Other models offer Electronic VR which applies movement data to image processing to turn blurred images into beautifully clear results.

Better pictures in lower light Selected Coolpix models offer ISO capability beyond the range of conventional digital compacts. An exciting advantage that greatly increases photographic possibilities, high ISO capability delivers excellent exposure in challenging conditions, broadens the scope of possible subjects and allows scenes to be captured beautifully without compromising natural light.

Face-priority AF Available only with Nikon Coolpix cameras, the clever Face-priority AF function helps ensure satisfyingly crisp portraits no matter where the subject is in the shot. By automatically detecting people's faces in the frame, the photographer is free to press the shutter for sharp portraits with focus exactly where it's wanted.

D-Lighting Only Nikon delivers the advantage of D-Lighting, a unique technology with the ability to rescue underexposed images or shots taken with excessive backlight. Accessible in Playback mode, this innovative feature automatically creates a copy of the image, adding light and detail added where necessary, while leaving correctly-exposed areas untouched. As a result, images are significantly improved in a manner that is much more natural looking.

In-camera red-eye fix Coolpix cameras offer refined red-eye reduction capability that surpasses other digital compacts. First, a series of pre-flashes stimulate the subject’s pupils, causing them to constrict. The camera then analyzes the captured image for the remaining presence of red eyes, automatically correcting them in-camera before saving the image to memory.

Just bought one of these over weekend and tried it out extensively. Compact, solid design that feels good in your hand. At this price the feature list is superb: Electronic View Finder (EVF), 5x opitcal zoom, 8 megapixel, Auto/Program AND Manual controls. Movie mode that allows zooming while you shoot. Exceptional image quality. Vibration reduction image stabilization works great, too. I also was pleasantly surprised to see that it uses AA batteries--no expensive special purpose lithium batteries. These were all important features for me.

The EVF is very cool and unusual in a camera at this price and, it seems more and more, a viewfinder of ANY kind in a point & shoot camera is becoming unusual. So many of the newer models are eliminating this feature, requiring you to use the large LCD screen. The EVF is better than a traditional optical viewfinder, since it mimics the large preview LCD: it shows any menu options, too. In bright sunlight this makes the camera very easy to use. Without the EVF, I don't know how I would have shot so many of my test photos over this past weekend in the bright sun.

The P60 is fun to use. Its various shooting modes offer real differences in image composition and creation. Lots to experiment with here, but at the same time it is an easy-to-use point and shoot camera for taking snapshots.

If you're in the market for a small digital camera, seriously consider this one.

Over the past 2 years, I have gone through a lot of Nikon Point and Shoot Cameras. I started with the L1, S200, s51, 7900, even a P5000 and briefly had a Canon SD 700IS. I have to say, the P60 is the best out of all of them! Almost absent is Nikon's annoying shutter lag they had in previous models and now it is a fast, responsive little camera. I don't think it will win the award for quickest compared to the Canon's Elphs, but it is a sure improvement. The camera is quiet when zooming and very fast. Image quality from what I can see so far is excellent. Best of all, it takes Double AA batteries back to the days when I had a Nikon 950. It is very light and not heavy. Also it isn't a sub compact camera, so don't expect it to fit in a little girl's pocket. The electronic viewfinder is also very nice to have on a camera this small. It isn't the sharpest when u look through it, but it is a nice option to have. The only drawback is that the P60 does not have the wide angle lens that the P50 had, it makes up for it though in the 5X Zoom. This camera also has less shutter lag than the flagship P5100, which I have used (I had the previous P5000 model). All in all, I think Nikon fixed a lot of flaws on this model. Hopefully, they keep up the good work!

Verified Purchase
Having been a fan of Nikon cameras for years. I wanted a small camera to take on our upcoming trip to Disney World.

I also own a Nikon D300 but it would be way too difficult to lug around this camera and the many lenses I have for it. Don't get me wrong, my D300 is THE greatest camera I've ever shot with but just not practical on a family vacation like this.

After reading several reviews of the Coolpix P60, I decided to purchase it and am very happy I did. After just a few days with this nice little camera, Nikon really has a winner on their hands for the compact market.

Some of the benefits that are important to me include...

A digital viewfinder - As I normaly use a dSLR camera, I'm just used to composing photos through the lens (viewfinder). It's also great for bright conditions when there may be too much glare on the screen.

The advanced shutter & aperture controls give me more function when needed rather than just letting the camera choose the settings. I never use the AUTO settings on any camera.

Great low light (high ISO) settings which actually produce usable pictures.

A very good image stabilization feature.

I highly recommend this camera.

Hi, My name is C Joseph and this is my review of the Nikon Cool Pix P60
I paid 125 dollars for this beauty and I can say that it's been a good investment. The Nikon is roughly the size of an adult fist and about as thick. It has 8 megapixel which for me translates to a better quality of photos and more to work with when I'm editing. The optical zoom in beautiful, perfect for the fun on the go photographer.
The camera is really compact, it fits in a pocket in a purse but it's not as thin as the more fashionable ones but it makes up for that in quality. The image stabilization on it is really good, again perfect for quick crazy shots. I got a 8g card for it because I'm a pack rat when it comes to deleting pictures and also because it has a big beautiful preview screen so you can just carry it around and show
your friends pictures from the party they missed. Moving past the technical I love this camera for three main reasons. It's brilliant, in that the quality is so above par one you get the pictures onto your computer you'll appreciate it. It's versatile, I love the different settings, modes and features and the fact that you can tweak every little thing to get your picture just perfect. And finally, I love how tough it is, this very camera that I'm recording from right now
fell three stories and survived. It's a little scuffed up but the lenses is fine, I think thats luck on my part, but it takes pictures and records great still. I think for a gadget as cool and as fun as this, is worth the cash.

After recording I have only a few corrections.
The audio skips in and out occasionally but not too much. It seems you have to be facing the mic at all times for optimal audio quality.
Also I had to reduce the size of this in Divx so that it was 100mb needless to say the quality is not as sharp.
Also the image stabilization is not perfect, always hold on tight to your camera :)
