Falls way below normal Nikon standards


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.

Truly appalling battery management

By Zanuck

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.

Get an inexpensive DSLR or a point & shoot instead

By NikonLoyal

from Syracuse, NY

Comments about Nikon Black 13.5 Megapixel COOLPIX Digital Camera:

I have a D300 and bought this as a sub camera. Every time I try to use it, the battery is completely exhausted after a couple of weeks of non-use. I had the local store send it back twice to NIKON. First time, NIKON replaced the battery charger while there was nothing wrong with it. The second time I requested a replacement or a credit but they refused. Not much sense of purchasing an extended warranty! The major flaw is that the battery drains even when everything is switched off. There is no battery indicator until the power is just about exhausted, which you do not see. (Unlike DSLR which you can continuously monitor the battery health.) Now I bought a second battery and always carry it in the camera pouch. Manual focusing and other manual settings are cumbersome. GPS is useless. In effect, this camera is trying to be something it is not. This camera does not fit in a pocket anyway. When I did not want to carry D300, I borrowed D40 (or I suggest D3000 for the same price) and got far better results. (I had Coolpix 5200 and its price and my expectation were lower. I gave it to my son who still uses it for snapshots.) I have been a continuous NIKON user since NIKKOMAT, F3, D1 but I am very unhappy with this camera. I wonder whether I should have bought a similar, albeit slightly larger, camera from another maker instead.

Low battery life

By Barb

from Montana

Comments about Nikon Black 13.5 Megapixel COOLPIX Digital Camera:

I, too, have been disappointed with the very low battery life. If it is left unused for even a week, it is "dead" and needs recharging. Any advise=fix?

A Good Geotagging Camera

By Adam

from Kearny, NJ

Comments about Nikon Black 13.5 Megapixel COOLPIX Digital Camera:

It has its pros and cons.... Overall I am satisfied with the Camera. Cons: First like any camera it can get dust dirt or debris inside the camera be careful mine got some sort of smudge inside even tho it's not a dslr type camera. Second the battery life. It will last more then 100 photos on a single charge but when my battery gets low my camera just dies no low battery waring it just stops taking photos and the lens stays out. I keep extra charged batteries on hand for when I need them. New battery all is fine. Pros: GPS capabilities fantastic you are able to Geotag photo place location great for photo mapping applications. Camera Does take good movies Decent Zoom Photo quality is amazing most of the time I do not even need the flash engaged to take pictures. Nikon's low light feature can blow you away.. The 13.5 megapixel sensor can make you take almost professional quality like DSLR photos, from a point and shoot. Ohh yah great technical support with Nikon as well for when or if you may need it.

Comments about Nikon Black 13.5 Megapixel COOLPIX Digital Camera:

I've been using my p6000 for a few days and tought I'd share some of my positive impressions. First off, I've never owned a DSLR and my experience comes from Sony P/S camera's.

I bought this camera primarily because it reminds me of the Canon G9 that I tried briefly and liked because it had lots of nice buttons and was easy for me to operate without using the LCD screen. What I like about it over the G9 is it is actually a better weight. Solid enough to get my hands around, and light enough to use single handedly. Another big plus is the built-in GPS. Since most of my photos are taken on trips this is very useful and so far works as advertised.

I even used the p6000 with GPS from a plane to trace a recent flight path in what one could call "breadcrumb mode". I just shot some pics periodically out of the plane window and when I viewed them on Googlemaps, I had my flight path.

I can understand the negative comments from a photographer's perspective and if you look at the images with high magnification you will see problems but as a traveller's camera this is looking like a great choice. It's light, does all the essentials, pretty easy to learn and you don't need to have a camera bag to lug around.

I love the panorama assist mode, and along with Panorama Maker (included) the results need very little tweaking.

I also like the Digital Zoom options which should be renamed "Artificial Zoom". I don't use the "scaling" method for I think obvious reasons, but I do like the "croping" method. I've set my preferred picture size to 3 megapixels, and the camera then uses the remaining unused pixels (its a 13 megapixel sensor) to "zoom in" by croping in. This is essentially what I used to do when the telephoto wasn't long enough to capture wildlife. Instead of my having to shoot at 13 megapixels and remembering to later crop the photo in Photoshop, the camera handles this for me.

Nikon's RAW file codec isn't ready yet (website says to check back soon), but in the mean time Adobe's Camera Raw plugin 4.6 can read the p6000 NRW files.
