I travel a lot and needed a good camera to take pictures of the sites. I've had others but decided to splurge on this because of the GPS capability. It takes fantastic day pictures. It is very good at sunrise and sunset. While it can take good pictures at night, you definitely need a tripod or a way to brace the camera. My one major beef is that the GPS takes forever to find out where it is if you go beyond 2 hours. There is no way to tell the camera to keep the location longer than that, so it has to recompute its location. If you travel and bring out the camera at your destination, it can take over 10 minutes to figure out where it is (even in broad open space). Once it does figure out where it is, then the geocoding is wonderful and really helps keep track of your travels, especially if you use iPhoto (or some other program that supports geotagging). Overall a great little camera with excellent picture quality.

I bought this camera for my wife right after it was launched because of my positive experiences with the Nikon DSLR cameras, thinking that the mix of optics and features was exactly what I was looking for, as a gift for my wife. On the bright side: 1. The shutter lag is very short and the focus speed I have found to be quite good for a point-and-shoot (better than my D90 when using live view on it!) 2. The built in GPS allows to Geotag photos - really nice when doing a lot of travel photography. 3. Initially the battery life was dreadful, but after a firmware upgrade, the battery life is quite reasonable. Can do a full day of shooting outdoors with no trouble (200+ shots) 4. The dial-control model is quite familiar to me, although my wife does not care for it too much. Unfortunately the camera has some serious shortfalls: 1. The flash does not pop-up automatically when in full automatic mode. I would expect that the flash behaves the same as on my D90 - when in full Auto if the camera determines the flash is needed - pop-it up! 2. The GPS is really really really slow to acquire a signal, and if you forget to turn it off when you are not going to use the camera for a few days, you will come back to a dead battery - usually right when you are trying to get a quick picture! 3. We sometimes find it hard to tell the camera what to focus on and get a fair number of out of focus shots (granted it could be my wife's photography skills... but it is a point-and-shoot camera after all) Overall I have not been very happy with the camera, and am in the market for a replacement camera for my wife.

Great little Camera

By 

from Temporary in Tokyo Japan

Comments about Nikon Black 13.5 Megapixel COOLPIX Digital Camera:

I have owned this camera for over four years now and am very pleased with its performance. The only difficulty I have had with this camera is the GPS function requiring long periods of time to determine its location. Pictures have been excellent. No maintenance problem to report which is surprising due to the backpacking trips I've made with this camera in remote areas and some harsh treatment its received. This camera still functions smoothly and provides good quality photos. I would but another one if they still made it, or a very similar model with all the same features and a better GPS. Moving up soon to a DSLR (D800 ??)

Falls way below normal Nikon standards

By 

from San Francisco

Comments about Nikon Black 13.5 Megapixel COOLPIX Digital Camera:

I have owned many Nikons over the years, and have always been satisfied. This camera, though, is the exception. It never properly did all it was said to be able to do. Worked slowly and poorly (eg, NEF). I would have sold it off, except I could not do so in good conscience. I realize that a small camera like this cannot be expected to do what my D300 does, but it should do what is advertised. Nikon really stumbled badly with this one.

The 6000 CAN produce very acceptable images

By 

from Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada

Comments about Nikon Black 13.5 Megapixel COOLPIX Digital Camera:

Right of the bat, this camera is extremely hard on batteries, carry at least 2 spares. Tele and Wide angle only work occasionally even on my 2nd, the first one was worse. Since the Tele. and Wide angle are motorized it is very hard to get the result you want, manual is much smoother, mind you, I am a little spoiled by my D300, Auto focus is acceptable but seems to hunt more than necessary. On full Telephoto the viewfinder gets blurred but the image turns out sharp

A real viewfinder and good performance.

By 

from Mn

Comments about Nikon Black 13.5 Megapixel COOLPIX Digital Camera:

I initially bought the P6000 based on the need for a compact camera to carry on an extended Asian trip. As a long time Nikon user, I naturally went there first. My requirements were for a real, optical viewfinder, and high performance. The P6000 has met all of my expectations and delivers excellent images. Now for the downsides: 1.Why the NRW format? NEF works fine on my other digital Nikons. 2.The controls can be accidentally moved by my large hands. 3.Battery life, 100~150 NRW's per battery. I carry several spares. However I've never noticed the battery going flat when the camera is unused for an extended period. Of course, I use it a lot. Would I buy it again? Yes. Would I recommend it? Yes

Truly appalling battery management

By 

from Vancouver, Canada

Comments about Nikon Black 13.5 Megapixel COOLPIX Digital Camera:

I like the camera. It is compact, feels good in my (large) hands, takes good photos and is easy to carry around. However, what enrages me almost every time I try to use it is that the battery has drained. I also have a D70s and, perhaps, am pampered by the battery life in that. However, I do NOT expect a camera to drain itself over a couple of weeks sitting switched off in a cupboard. It is simply not acceptable and means I'm unlikely to buy another Nikon compact. BTW - I never have been able to get the camera to upload photos via the network connector.

Like camera for what I bought it for.

By 

from Afton,Va.

Comments about Nikon Black 13.5 Megapixel COOLPIX Digital Camera:

I bought this camera primarily for it's size and RAW capabilities. But why NRW format? I use the camera under water in an inexpensive Dicapac bag and results are great. I also use it when I just want to carry something small to take pictures with. It has all the limitations of a small sensor camera, noise over ISO 400, Poor auto white balance. Manual white balance is well rendered. With film ware up date I don't have a problem with battery life.

Great "pocket" camera - shoots RAW

By 

from Indianapolis, IN

Comments about Nikon Black 13.5 Megapixel COOLPIX Digital Camera:

Flexible, fully featured, easy to carry - surprisingly good images for a non DSLR. RAW capability was my primary selection criteria and I've been pleased with images in wide variety of shots - landscapes to portraits, Hasn't replaced the DSLR, but provides a light weight alternative.
