Nikon is proud to announce its new top of the line Performance series Coolpix model, the Coolpix P6000. Nikon’s first camera with built-in GPS. Superb image quality is guaranteed by an effective 13.5 megapixels, the wide-angle 4x zoom Nikkor lens including 2 ED glass elements and Nikon’s image-processing system EXPEED. The built-in GPS, RAW support, and integrated Ethernet connector for image sharing via Nikon's ‘my Picturetown’ make it one of the most advanced compact cameras on the market today. And thanks to its attractive, intelligent design with an SLR-like grip for perfect handling, user-friendly button layout and 2.7-inch high-resolution TFT screen, it’s easy to use so you can concentrate on the shooting.

The Nikon P6000 is for those who want the best in a small package. Nikon has packed this camera with groundbreaking technology to ensure the highest possible image quality from a compact body. Its 13.5 effective megapixels, the use of Nikon’s exclusive image-processing system EXPEED, originally designed for its professional D-SLRs, and a wide-angle 4x Zoom-Nikkor lens with two ED glass elements (28-112 mm) leave nothing to be desired. The camera’s image quality is further reinforced by its ability to shoot images in RAW format, and Picture Control capabilities, taken from D-SLR products.

High-performance Lens-shift Vibration Reduction
Furthermore it features three functions to reduce image blur. High-performance Lens-shift Vibration Reduction (VR) allows sharp pictures with minimal blur and offers the equivalent of shooting at a shutter speed three stops faster. Its superior noise-reduction technology allows a sensitivity range up to ISO 6400. And with Nikon’s Best Shot Selector, the camera takes a maximum of 10 sequential shots and automatically saves the sharpest image. This is ideal for macro close-up shooting when camera shake is most likely.

Nikon Coolpix camera technology
To get the most out of the Coolpix P6000’s technology, Nikon has invested the greatest care to ensure it is easy to use. For freedom in exposure control, there is a choice of four exposure modes (P/S/A/M) allowing the user to finely control the camera or to let the camera decide what's best. Fifteen Scene Modes, including modes for tough-to-shoot environments such as beach/snow, sunset, dusk/dawn and fireworks shows, mean you’ll capture even the trickiest subjects perfectly. There are six colour options for special colour effects similar to those obtained using a filter. The improved Face-priority AF recognises up to 12 faces for both superb portrait photography and crisp group images, even when faces are underexposed in backlit conditions or overexposed in strong sunshine. And should there be ‘red eye’, the In-camera Red-Eye Fix activates at exposure and automatically reduces and corrects it.
