Nikon Coolpix P6000 13.5 megapixel digicam has GPS

Posted on Friday, August 08 2008 @ 00:34:12 CEST by


Nikon today introduced its Coolpix P6000 digital camera, this new model features a 13.5 megapixel sensor, 2.7" LCD display, GPS tagging and a 4x zoom lens. The P6000 also has some features for the more professional photographers such as P/S/A/M exposure modes, the capability to shoot in RAW and support for an external flash.
Customization features inspired by Nikon digital SLR cameras allow photographers to take control where desired. The Mode Dial provides quick access to advanced Programmed Auto [P], Shutter-priority Auto [S], Aperture-priority Auto [A], and Manual [M] exposure modes, the choice of two user-defined settings, (U1/U2), as well as automated scene modes that offer learning and advanced photographers expressive freedom combined with ultimate convenience. In addition, the P6000 features the Command dial and customizable Function button that allow quick switching of settings. There’s also a shooting menu for quick access to regularly used selections and an efficient new tabbed menu interface.

Additional shooting options engineered to maximize image quality and offer greater control over the final results include Nikon’s original COOLPIX Picture Control System and NRW* (RAW) support. The COOLPIX Picture Control System features intuitive operation that enable in-camera finishing and conversion to JPEG format, allowing photographers to adjust images to their liking. Further, images shot in NRW* (RAW) format can be opened and edited in ViewNX (Window version only) for increased flexibility.

As the flagship model of the Nikon COOLPIX lineup, the COOLPIX P6000 is designed to deliver innovative functions in addition to optimum image quality. Wired LAN support offers easy access to the Internet for automatic and secure online image storage using the Picture Bank service of my Picturetown, which also provides the ability to send images directly to a blog or other websites. And a new built-in GPS (Global Positioning System) unit can record the location of shots when taken and attach “geotags” with information about latitude and longitude to each image file. This adds the fun of being able to view the location on maps available in ViewNX or my Picturetown, or to edit or add geotag information.

The finely crafted body feels immediately familiar in the hand, demonstrating Nikon’s commitment to building the COOLPIX P6000 for true camera enthusiasts. It features a quality finish and a front panel made of solid magnesium alloy (Mg), a comfortable grip covered in grid-pattern rubber, and logically placed controls that simplify and streamline camera operation. There’s also an optical viewfinder that aids composition, particularly in brightly-lit conditions. Another major feature is system expandability, which supports the use of external flash and converter lens components, further expanding the photographic possibilities of the COOLPIX P6000.


The Nikon Coolpix P6000 will be available for $500. Lets just hope the image quality is good as 13.5 megapixels is quite a lot for these small digicam sensors.
