Nikon Coolpix P6000 Review
Just like the Canon PowerShot G10, the P6000 is a bit of a beast in the elegant supermodel world of compacts, although it is slightly smaller and lighter than the G10. Like the G10, the P6000 boasts great build quality and excellent, though complicated, manual shooting options.
However, it also has yet another undersized viewfinder, plus its screen is smaller than the G10's. Of course, the Nikon pedigree speaks for itself and if you're currently a Nikon user, brand loyalty may well persuade you to ignore the rest of the market and only consider the P6000. It's a well-built camera that will fit into any current operating system without any problem, but how does the image quality compare with that of its rivals?
Well, the P6000's image quality is excellent, with bright colours, minimal fringing and noise-free images below ISO 400. However, expect noise to kick in above 400 and definitely by the time you reach the Nikon's incredible top ISO of 6400.
Nikon's VR image stabilization reduces blur efficiently, although its chunky textured grip makes it easy to hold still, however shaky you may be!
However, its smaller screen, lower zoom ratio of 4x and slightly tricksy controls land it in second place behind the Canon G10.
We love: Looks, build quality, easy to hold, great manual options, wide-angle attachment for landscapes and max ISO of 6400!
Shame about: Small viewfinder
Professional choice: Definitely
