Release Issued by Nikon:
COOLPIX P60 incorporating NIKKOR lens
RRP: £199.99 / €292.00
Sales start date: March 2008
Nikon UK is pleased to announce the introduction of the COOLPIX P60, a compact camera that delivers reliability and familiarity within a traditional design. Built on a custom application of Nikon's innovative EXPEED digital image processing concept, the COOLPIX P60 incorporates the precision optics of a NIKKOR lens, realising optimum performance and maximum image quality.
An impressive effective megapixel count of 8.1 enhances the potential of the high performance digital image-processing engine for outstanding image quality, while an improved 5x Zoom-NIKKOR lens delivers yet more flexibility in its ability to capture a range of scenes from panoramic landscapes to close-up portraits.
Image sensor shift VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilisation compensates for camera shake to create sharp results whilst extended light sensitivity up to ISO 2000 further helps prevent blurred shots in lower light, or when capturing fast-moving subjects. The COOLPIX P60 also offers Programmed Auto [P] and Manual [M] exposure modes, enabling the user to enjoy shooting in a variety of styles.
A functional body design with a defined grip for secure finger placement allows for intuitive operation including the use of the Mode dial. Compositional versatility, even in bright sunlight, is achieved thanks to its electronic viewfinder and a 2.5-inch LCD monitor.
Power is supplied by readily available AA-size batteries, which means the COOLPIX P60 can be used in virtually any location without worrying about recharging or running out of power.
Note: Specifications, design, product name, standard accessories, and release schedule may differ by country or area.
Nikon COOLPIX P60 Feature Highlights
Intuitive access to a wealth of practical shooting modes
The Mode dial includes settings for two exposure modes that provide greater personal control over camera operation. Programmed Auto [P] mode automatically selects the optimal shutter and aperture settings, while Manual [M] exposure mode provides full control over both the aperture and shutter speed settings. In addition, the COOLPIX P60 is equipped with a selection of 15 scene-optimized modes and four different movie modes.
Image sensor shift VR image stabilisation for sharp images
The COOLPIX P60 features the image stabilising performance of image sensor shift VR capability. The system applies in-camera image processing to help overcome the effects of camera shake and produce satisfyingly crisp results, while also contributing to a reassuring shooting experience.
ISO 2000 capability for better pictures in lower light
With an extended light sensitivity range from ISO 80 all the way up to ISO 2000, the COOLPIX P60 makes it easier to take great-looking pictures in lower lighting conditions, or to capture fast moving subjects with impressive clarity.
AA-size batteries for shoot-anywhere convenience
Experience the convenience of an AA-size battery compatible compact digital camera. Thanks to the advantage of being able to pick up a new set of batteries in virtually any corner of the world, users can shoot with reassurance, free of any worries about recharging batteries or running out of power when a special shutter chance arises.
