Nikon unveiled its new CoolPix P60 digital camera.

This model features a 8.1 megapixel sensor, 5x optical zoom, Nikkor lens with image stabilization, ISO2000 and Nikon's Expeed image processor.
The COOLPIX P60 comes with a functional body design and a defined hand grip for secure finger placement and easy operation. The camera’s mode dial includes two exposure modes - Programmed Auto and Manual - to offer consumers creative control over the pictures they take. Programmed Auto [P] mode automatically selects optimal shutter and aperture settings, while Manual [M] mode provides full control over both. Additionally, the P60 is equipped with 15 scene-optimized modes for making portraits, sports, landscapes, beach and snow shots a snap to shoot, as well as four different movie modes to expand users' photography experience.

To ensure sharp and steady images when utilizing the camera’s 5x zoom, the P60 boasts sophisticated VR Optical Image Stabilization technology, which helps overcome the effects of camera shake. The P60 also sports an extended light sensitivity range up to ISO 2000, which helps capture stunning pictures in low light settings. The COOLPIX P60 utilizes Nikon's EXPEEDTM image processing system for enhanced noise reduction and improved signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio, preserving image quality even when shooting at higher ISO settings.

It will be available in March for $230.
