Nikon Coolpix P60 Reviews

CNETAus reviews the Nikon Coolpix P60 and writes;
“Stolid rather than sexy, competent rather than classy, the boxy Nikon Coolpix P60 is a belt-and-braces, real ale-supping point-and-shoot. The cool kids won’t be impressed, but we’re always glad to see a compact that gives such reliable images..”

PhotographyBlog reviews the Nikon Coolpix P60 and writes;
“the Nikon Coolpix P60 is indeed intuitive to use, delivers flattering results under most conditions and offers an outward air of sophistication that few models in its price bracket can muster.”
Rating: ★★★★☆ reviews the Nikon Coolpix P60 and writes;
” This camera is a step up from a basic point and shoot camera. It takes a good scenic shot and also has an impressive build quality. Nikon have also found room to squeeze in a viewfinder.”

PCMag reviews the Nikon Coolpix P60 and writes;
“if you’re willing to put up with the slow start time and bulk of the P60, you might just come to appreciate the thoughtful little details Nikon incorporated… ”

ePhotozine reviews the Nikon Coolpix P60 and writes;
“For a couple of hundred pounds, this isn’t a bad camera. Better performances can be attained with other cameras, but you’ll more than likely have to pay more. I’m still dissatisfied with the noise performance. I think after the release of EXPEED, Nikon have a lot to live up to and need to start fitting it to every camera they can. ”

Pocket-Lint reviews the Nikon Coolpix S600 and writes;
“The Nikon Coolpix P60 is the same price as the P50 and barring the EVF; it’s a much better camera in terms of performance. There’s some noticeable barrel distortion on that lens, a lens which offers, in my view, a less flexible focal range than the P50’s 28-102mm zoom”

InfoSync reviews the Nikon Coolpix S600 and writes;
Pros: Excellent noise management. Solid color reproduction. VR lens. Cons: Body is clunky and unattractive. Strange grip makes for awkward handling. Pricy for its class.”
Rating: ★★½☆☆
