I'm a Nikon enthusiast. I own two professional digital SLR bodies and several lenses, but I wanted something small to carry around when I didn't want to lug a big SLR around. You know, night on the town or anywhere where a big camera would attract too much unwanted attention. So when Nikon announced a point and shoot (P&S) camera that supported a RAW file format, I was immediately interested. When I heard about all the other bells and whistles on this P&S, I was determine to get one. So does it live up to all the hype? Let begin with what I liked.


13.5 Megapixel RAW files - Yep, it's even got a higher pixel count than my D300 and depending on the settings I can get some great enlargements or a lot of flexibility to crop. With RAW files, there's more latitude for post-processing adjustments.

Fully Automatic or Manual - Just like its bigger brothers, the P6000 has Programmed Auto, Shutter Priority, Aperture Priority or Full Manual modes. A large selection dial on top of the camera selects the mode. The command dial near your thumb controls the selection of speed, aperture or both in manual or programmed modes. It also has specific scene modes just like Nikon's other P&S cameras.

Two User Modes - After you've customized the settings to what you like, you can save them to one of two user modes to recall anytime by just selecting U1 or U2 on the mode dial. Pretty handy.

Auto or Manual Focus - Yes, manual focus on a P&S. Select the macro/MF button and put the camera into manual focus mode and you have even more control. Another to the left of the screen activates a close up section of the screen--apparently to help focus--and also allows the same command dial that control everything else to also focus the lens.

I just got this camera yesterday evening and have had time to play with just about all the main features. I also own a Canon PowerShot G9 so I find myself comparing the two all the time. With that said, I wasn't expecting anything with ultra low noise. The G9 noise levels are unacceptable (in my opinion) at any ISO setting over 200. Having come from this same type of CCD, I wasn't expecting miracles so I'm not disappointed. If anything, I think the noise is on par or a little less noticeable on the P6000 than it is on the G9. That was a surprise considering that the P6000 is packing in more pixels on the same sized CCD. Here's my summary:

Noise = not great, but not bad at all as long as you stay ISO 200 or lower. If you go up to 400 and above, plan on using noise reduction software.

Optics = not tack sharp like you can get out of a dSLR, but, again, not bad. It reminds me of a good mid-range P&S camera in terms of optics. I think the G9 might be a little better here.

GPS = great! I really love this. Two words of warning: it eats the battery quickly and it takes a while to lock on to the GPS signal (especially if you are in a city like Chicago). Once it's locked on, the GPS coordinates are pretty accurate.

Speed = Good. I found the camera responsive. No speed demon, but shutter lag isn't a problem and all the camera functions are fairly snappy.

Mac Compatible = 50/50. It's terrible if you're expecting native Mac support from Nikon on it's new RAW format. It's great if you're just shooting JPG images. I only use a Mac, but third-party solutions are already available to let you process the RAW files on your Mac. Lightroom 2.1 is compatible with the new format and so is Adobe's Camera RAW 4.6 plugin for Photoshop and Photoshop Elements.

The Nikon Coolpix P6000 is a great camera. I have two Pentax k-1000's, Nikon 808, Nikon D-100 and now this! I had an accident In Jan 06' and since then i haven't been able to work professionally as my d-100 was too heavy for me to carry on my shoulder and hold. I'd been discouraged with so many light weight cameras out there, too much noise, light sensors were horrible and the list went on and on. So finally this came out and still looking after two years i found this one. I was skeptical at first and turned off, since amateur photographers rave about the digital little point and shoots and even their cell phone cameras for that matter! But i decided to give it a try. Within a week i had shot over 500 pics and now have my true love for photography back. I love the fact it has a manual focus, which really works and shows your depth of field. The colors are awesome and even has settings you can set yourself to increase your contrast and tonality. Depending on if you are inside or outside the iso's matter. Shooting above 800 iso w/o a flash, you will start to see some noise. WIth flash, obviously that is eliminated. Now i know for the pros, flash is always a huge reluctance, but ahhhh with this camera you can turn down the flash to use it as a fill light or increase it for a more dramatic affect. You can shoot in black & white, sepia, and blue (can't remember the technical term), plus you can change the saturation on these as well, and or the contrast. I love the wide angle, and was even surprised by the digital zoom! Most digital zooms are worthless, but this looks pretty good and is useful. The light sensor is great for reading available lighting and you have the option of changing your white balance and even customizing one of the WB settings. For a little camera you have lots of control with how YOU want your photo to look like. I am absolutely impressed!
