The P6000 is just plain ol fun! I’ve not figured out the NRW file thing yet so haven’t been able to unlock the raw power but I’m pretty impressed with the Jpegs. These shots were taken at ISO 64 with -1 stop comp dialed in to bring out the mood in the clouds and color.
If I had to list what I like best, it’s the simple ease of use. There isn’t really much to the P6000 which makes pointing and shooting simple. The shutter lag is amaziingly little which is a joy. The LCD monitor is bright so composing in sunlight not painful. Image quality in the Jpegs would easily make a magazine page. While I have the GPS turned on, I don’t have NXViews to see the info. And the flash, that little thing does a clean job for a on camera flash.
Bottomline, it works for my P&S needs and I can make money from it’s files.
Nikon has announced a Coolpix you should take note of, the P6000. This isn’t your ordinary pocket camera, oh no (there goes more of that money you saved on the D700). It’s chock full of cool new features like a 13.mil sensor, 2.7″ monitor with 23k res, Raw (new format) built-in GPS, i-TTL hot shoe and so much more. You can check out the specs here. You can see a comparison chart here. Product brochure is here. The P6000 is definitely not your mother’s P&S!
